Choose Flash Or Custom Tattoos Toronto

By Judy Sullivan

Your body is the canvas at tattoos Toronto. Write your story in permanent ink. Whether you desire a discrete or demure flash tat, or a custom design, experienced artists are at your service. No longer the domain of criminals and deviants, as many women as men sport tats. Many a businessman or woman is hiding a unique and personal ink piece under that business styled shirt or blouse.

Choose an artist that will create a work of art using your skin as the canvas. First visit the shop and talk to the artist. Many have art or graphic design degrees. Ask to see a portfolio of work the artist has done. Ask about experience and specialties. And of course, the store should be neat and clean.

Flash are pictures of pre-designed tats. Although sometimes derided as unoriginal, many have a timeless meaning that speaks to every generation. A heart with the name of a loved one written inside is a timeless symbol of love and devotion. A family tree celebrates family ties. Patriotic and cultural symbols bind a group together. An anchor is a symbol of stability throughout the storms of life. Other popular flash tats are the infinity symbol, a cross, a musical note, a zodiac sign. Butterflies, birds, and flowers can have different meanings to different cultural groups.

Everyday folk are using their skin as the canvas of personal expression. Symbols of spiritual and religious devotion are popular. So are memorials to a loved one. Popular with men is a script tat, the family name written in Olde English style. Script tats can also express faith, inspiration, or words of wisdom. A good artist can turn a realistic portrait into skin art.

Ink is also used for cosmetic purposes to enhance lips, eyes, and eyebrows. A beautiful ink piece can cover a skin discoloration or a scar. Ink tattooing has been used to represent nipples on a reconstructed breast. Ask for a consultation. Choose an artist with experience with cosmetic work.

Motivations for wanting a tat include beauty, art, fashion, individual expression, personal narrative, cultural affiliation, and sexual attraction. Of course some are still the result of an impulsive act, especially when under the influence. Many gangs still sport tattoos to show affiliation. But there's also corporate logos including Harley Davidson, Budweiser, Corona, Chevrolet, Volkswagen, and Ford.

An explosion of tattoo related reality shows has de-mystified the process. The NIX show (Northern Ink Xposure) comes to Toronto in June. Tattoo artists gather to display their skills and compete for artistic recognition. Stop by the NIX show to see tattoo application in process, and meet the artists.

When deciding on placement, remember, they're permanent. Many doctors and lawyers have tattoos hiding under their shirtsleeves. Many women are sporting a tat underneath that blouse and jacket. As acceptable as they are, not all workplaces want employees visibly flaunting their personal life journey at work. Choose a design that will have meaning for the rest of your life.

Tattoos Toronto are popular with businessmen and women, doctors, lawyers, college students, nurses. Fifteen percent of baby boomers sport a tattoo. Thirty-eight percent of the 18-29 year old crowd have at least 1 tat. The modern day rite of passage is 1st a driver's license, then a tat.
