    A nice book, but…., October 6, 2008
    By 
    quicksilverdragon (wisconsin) –

    I ordered this book thinking it would have tons of different tattoo ideas. While it does, it has a lot of the same thing. Like 40 pages of the “Green Man.” I dont see many tattoos of the green man, and to have 40 pages of it…also they have lighthouses?…well, draw your own conclusions. The dragons are really cool, but so many of the wildlife ones are for painting, not really tattoo quality. And the symbols section leaves a lot to be desired. Lots of crosses, which is fine, but nothing for modern symbols.And lastly the floral section. Only one rose, which i really like roses, so i thought that kinda sucked. A nice book overall, but if you are looking for a lot of variaty, look someplace else.

    Good source of design ideas, September 9, 2007
    Lora S. Irish is a talented artist and this plain book is a nice step-stone for designers and other artists to glean ideas, and not just for tattoos. As a matter of fact, I don’t really think the designs in the book are very contemporary as far as body-art designs go today. While not the most complicated set of designs, she shows very well how to increase their complexity and interest. Her line-drawings are supplemented by shaded drawings which illustrate how the design can be embellished and come to life. As a reference or guide, this book is very useful. It is rather thick to be copied or scanned and you will have to either remove the pages or break the back to successfully do either, unless you are hand-copying with transfer paper.

    I highly recommend it as an addition to your design-source library for pyrography (wood burning), carving, painting, and yes, even for a tattoo.

    Terrible tattoo designs from a woodcarver!, December 18, 2009
    By 
    Tattoo Artist (USA) –

    It is painfully obvious that Ms. Irish is not a tattoo artist. In fact, she is a wood carver, and has written many books about that. Well, I am here to tell you that woodcarving designs do NOT make for good tattoo designs. I have been a tattoo artist for ten years, and I can say this book contains some of the worst art I have seen in quite a while. The line drawings are poorly executed, with very thick lines, which look suspiciously like 14th century woodcuts. I wonder why.

    The designs depicted in this book are poorly drawn and unrealistically shaded. If you want realism in your tattoo design, then this is the worst place to look.

    I have no idea how this book actually found a publisher.

Tattoo Girl Says

Not long ago, tattoos have seen an increase in interest. They have persisted since back then yet you'll find that there's a distinctive love-hate correlation when it concerns tattoos. There are those that understand them as a form of beauty and a means to showcase oneself yet others affiliate a deficiency of morals as well as other unpleasant qualities to those people who have tattoos. Disregarding their proclivity, we all know that tattoos have actually been enduring and will even carry on doing so for many years to come. At this point, you'll notice generally more people who sport a tattoo or at a minimum, deciding on getting one than in the past. Generally, the appeal that tattoos provide is a lot more appreciated by young adults and acquiring a tattoo that is quite competently designed would surely add on to it.

Unfortunately, a different way of regarding tattoos is really one which may cast them in a negative light. This acknowledges tattoos, most notably outlandish kinds, as a detail that reduces somebody's degree of professionalism especially in the work place. In such a case, possessing an exposed tattoo may possibly damage the chances of you securing a stable career. Naturally, this will depend on the manager's view on tattoos. A person who has any kind of tattoos inside of the confines of the office suit she or he is dressing up in is not going to encounter much problems as it is not apparent to other people in plain sight. Hence, tattoo placement is still quite essential nowadays and individuals who do not comply with these unmentioned standards might lose out. Tattoos in intimate regions are typically more sought for since they may be visible only by the people close towards the wearer.

When getting a tattoo, a specific thing that needs adequate advanced planning is your tattoo designs. Heart-felt text and symbolic artistic renditions are still the most prevalent types of tattoo designs simply because they hold their own even in 50 years. When you choose tattoo designs which offers ambiguous interpretations to the observer, you could potentially match them to whatever you are experiencing at the moment. "Cliched" designs should generally be steered clear of as they quite simply will likely not stand the test of time. Adding to that, you will be better off not getting tattoos which demonstrates very sensitive or taboo matters if you plan to stay away from complications.

A tasteful tattoo is usually elegant, fulfilling and great to admire whereas an inferior work could easily turn you into a small kid's artwork; not quite half decent but your nearest and dearest might just simply say otherwise. For this reason, much like any other thing that we do, groundwork is very important. You should never make purchasing a tattoo an impulsive decision. Do spend some time and seek information or recommendations to help you in your selection. If you give it your all, the result will be fruitful.
