It does not matter how good or bad you are in fashion, but when it comes to making a tattoo you have to make a careful decision. Many guys don’t follow a proper trend of making a tattoo. Making a permanent tattoo is not a joke. You have to make a wise decision on what you are planning to make and how to care about it. To make your job easier, here is the list of 10 tattoos, which guys should never make.
1. A superhero emblem
Usually guys do this tattoo on chest as a sign of heroic greatness in their life or the character of a hero they like the most. However, when they tattoo such design, it represents their geekiness. Instead, you can make a tattoo of a family emblem or crest, which can surely give real to stand behind and which is unique in its own way.
2. Any tattoo on your face
If you are planning to make a tattoo like Mike Tyson, then hopefully you must be in the DJ job or in sports. However, if you are planning to work in corporate sector or outside a tattoo shop or carnivals then do not go with face tattoo. Instead you can make the tattoo anywhere else. Tattoos on legs, shoulder or calf will also look good. Pick any sport, but avoid working on face.
3. An anchor
This tattoo is too common and is out of fashion now. It looks as if you are a captain of sea-trawling vessel. If you have no scope of going to high seas or have forearms bumped out like a python after a meal, then surely anchor is not a tattoo for you. Instead you can make a symbol of your actual profession. You can make a bull tattoo if you are in stock trading, etc.
4. A pop-culture reference
Trends come and go. They never stay for long. If you plan to make one such design that is popular and you are not sure whether it will last long, then do not go for it. By doing this, you will be surely stuck up with that era where you are about to outgrow. Instead go for the one which can be an inspiration for you.
5. A cartoon figure
May be you are a cartoon lover, but it doesnât mean that you have to tattoo them. They are simply cartoon; paying tribute to them makes no sense. Recreation on your shoulder blade will probably creep out more women than attract them. Instead go for original drawing or come up with your own design. Originality will give your tattoo better look.
6. An iconic face
Itâs not necessary that even if you are Bob Marleyâs fan, you need to tattoo it. It is not necessary to immortalize your heroes by making tattoo of them. Instead you can go for a correlating inanimate symbol.
7. Barbed wire
Even though such tattoos go well on Pam Anderson, this outsider tattoo does not go well in mainstream. Sometimes such fashion looks odd; however, you can do a wrap text around the arms which has personal meaning.
8. Your girlfriend’s or wife’s name
To make something romantic, writing a girlfriend or wifeâs name on your body part is not necessary, instead buy flowers, write poem for them, but do not go with such old fashion thing. Besides if your love is true, you donât have to prove it to others by writing her name.
9. A mythical animal
The idea of mythical animal like unicorn is too girly. No matter what it is, but such tattoo is surely outlandish like the myths from which they originate. Instead make the tattoo of a real animal. If you still believe in myths then go with a Chinese dragon.
10. A Chinese symbol
Chinese symbol is just too common. When asked many people say it represents strength, peace, compassion or some pseudo-spiritual theme. If you can guess it right then itâs surely going to be embarrassing for you. Instead go for the symbol of your cultural heritage so that it will still look a unique symbol.
