Tattoos are fast catching on the Next Gen style and attitude. If one flaunts a tattoo, it is said to symbolize chic and charisma. The latest to join the tattoo bandwagon after the successful show of arm and band tattoos, is the leg tattoo that keeps fashion underneath. But, the trend of leg tattoos dates way back to ancient medieval times when tattoos of different designs were displayed to signify cultural relevance. Leg tattoos vary in size and shape and can be designed anywhere, from calves to thighs. But of course, the price varies with the size. A few tattoo ideas at a glimpse-
1. Portrait: Portraits of your favorite rock star or actor will be a rage with your friends who will desperately want to imitate you. A portrait is a life-like painting or drawing that is an artistic replica of a person. Portrait tattoos give a touch of reality to the tattoo bearer and also fills in the whole of your leg portion. Portrait tattoos are spotted mostly on the upper thigh portion and then throughout your leg. It’s a bit expensive as the size of portrait tattoo is comparatively large as compared to other tattoos that are simpler and less complex in design. But, the way it is displayed on the legs is no doubt eye-catching and engrossing.
2. Bands: Bands are one of my personal favorites where the design wraps your arms or legs portion partially. Unlike the portrait tattoo, it does not fill in. The band tattoo is most suitable if done near calves and not on upper thighs as it may not be visible. A variety of shapes and sizes await you, be it the tribal band tattoo, which is the most ancient and common tattoo art. Then you can also try out the new Celtic art, flames, barbed wires and loads more to add a funky look to your style.
3. Musical Notes: Music tattoos are a set of your favorite music notes where tattoos and music come together to create a divine combination in the form of musical art tattoos, that have an array of shapes and sizes. Go in for an experienced tattoo artist while piercing such tattoos as these tattoos require fine skills and expertise that’s not to be found in everyone.
4. Vertical tattoos: Tattoos that read from bottom to top instead of left to right. It’s a fine art! The idea of vertical script tattoos is cool but the implementation is somewhat weird due to lack of space, one cannot pierce long sentences or inscriptions. A one-word vertical script looks fine and is great as spaces between words and sentences is necessary, so a one-word tattoo is easy to pierce. Calligraphy and graffiti is difficult to be pierced as words flow into each other. So the next time you opt for a vertical script tattoo, choose a word that reveals your attitude and also easily carved.
