Make a note of the word: Artist!
Tattoo artists, in general, are very creative people!
Always passionate about their work. Conjure up great pieces of art from the concoction of emotions, memories and dreams and what not!
And translating this into something remarkable and tangible into the real world is what they do!
As one tattoo artist said – a tattoo is not just design and ink.
For the person wearing it, it represents a lot of things!
From their outlook and perception on life;
To their past experiences, hopes and dreams.
Spirituality, relationships, and a myriad of other things!
All of these are extracted in essence and forged into a tattoo!
When you go to your artist with a tattoo design that you have chosen from the internet, You are not giving them much freedom to utilize this: Artistic ability; of theirs!
Tattoo artists are not machines that transfer a given template onto your skin.
They are artists, that is to say, those who create art.
Remember, They are in the field of tattoo art, not only because of their passion but also because of their artistic bent of mind!
Give them a concept, and they apply their creativity and skill and come out with something you might never have imagined but at the same time represent all that you had in mind!
Give the artist the liberty to design for you! While defining the elements, characters of what you want in your tattoo! You will be amazed at what an artist can churn up!
Take, for example, tattoo artist Veer Hegde, founder of Eternal Expression Tattoo & Piercing Studio.
His iconic and fresh outlook on the Hindu God Shiva is a never before done way of portraying him in the form of a tattoo!

Studios across India and some parts of the world have imitated his creations! Some, Copying it straight from the picture. While others, making custom versions of it with slight modifications to the different elements!
To put it short, you will be missing out on a masterpiece! A great tattoo that could not manifest because you did not give your artist the freedom to design – all, of course, based on your inputs and requirements.
After all, it is going to represent a part of who you are and not anything else!
