Fear of regret is the one thing that keeps most people from getting their first tattoo. You know you want it today, but you can’t help but wonder what you’ll feel about it in a few years from now. It’s a fair concern, and to be honest the tattoo removal business would not survive without regret. However, the future remorse you’re worried about is only impending if you choose the wrong design and tattooist. We have already provided a guide to making sure you choose the right studio and artist, so today we’re following with a list of five surefire tattoo themes that you will NEVER regret.
5 Tattoo Concepts You Won’t Ever Regret
1. Memorial Tattoo
A tattoo honoring or paying tribute to a family member, close friend, or even a beloved pet serves as a vessel to emotional healing (more on this below). Whether represented through a portrait, name, quote or other symbol that captures their essence you will never look at the tattoo as the result of a passing phase.
2. Emotional Healing Tattoo
The above segues into the concept of getting a tattoo for emotional healing. There are numerous studies to indicate the benefit of this, with a tattoo in recovery response to a traumatic event in one’s life representing survival, tenacity, and strength. Adrenaline Studios has had the honor of helping countless clients bounce back from past events that have taken their toll emotionally, be they related to health, relationships, occupation, addiction or abuse. A tattoo serving as a reminder that you have survived and prevailed over something that ailed you will never be one to regret.
3. Physical Healing Tattoo
Tattoos can also be used to “heal” in a more physical and functional sense. People from all walks of life come to our studios to cover unsightly (as they see it) cellulite, spider veins, stretch marks, scars, and many forms of skin discoloration. There’s no regret when it comes to the “corrective” nature of this concept.
4. Tattoo About Your Kids
If you’ve got kids you’ve scored the ultimate safety net against tattoo regret. There’s no way you’ll feel any “buyer’s remorse” when it comes to this one, but choosing wisely is still key. Don’t worry, because once again we’ve got you covered with our list of top tattoo concepts for moms (here) and dads (here).
5. Tattoo to Mark a Positive (and Lasting) Milestone
A positive milestone in your life is one you will think fondly about and hold close to your heart through all of your remaining years. This makes perfect sense for a tattoo because is it makes you smile with pride and more importantly, it will stick. Need examples? Getting a tattoo to celebrate university graduation, winning a championship, the launch of your own business, or even a once in a lifetime and life-changing trip all are significant milestones that you will forever cherish – may as well commemorate it ink!
Again, all of the above is solely contingent upon choosing the right shop (and therefore tattooist). Schedule a consultation with an Adrenaline Studios near you to get started on a design that you’ll be stoked about for the rest of your life.
