People often like to ink their bodies with the name of their loved ones like spouses, siblings, children etc. For example, there are tattoos where the person has got several names tattooed on his forearm like Austin, Jacob and Noah and they form a heart figure together. This is a great idea for people who want to get the name of their loved ones tattooed on their bodies. Name tattoos are not always plain and simple and they may have some beautiful decorations and designs around it. Some tattoos show the name written in a beautiful cursive font and the artist adds a few shading effects and fills the font with two colors, like are purple and black, which creates a good amount of contrast.

There are unlimited ideas and concepts to make name tattoos, and some are unique concepts that are truly surreal. Some tattoos show an old anchor with a red ribbon around it, the ribbon has the name “Diana” written over it in a cursive font. The artist has immortalized the name in a beautiful way, this is great for people who want to get the name of their dear and departed ones tattooed. The type of font used has a huge impact on the way a tattoo turns out. For example, a huge name tattoo which reads as “Joseph” in a beautiful gothic font like the one found in an old book: if the artist pays special attention to detail and manages to deliver, the result can be truly amazing.

The name of a loved one makes a nice meaningful tattoo, sometimes it can be made a little more special with font coloring and a little decoration. On some tattoos we can see the name “Elle” inked onto the forearm, where the artist has used two colors to fill up the font and included four stars in the corners with the same color scheme to further decorate the tattoo.

Two names in one tattoo is quite popular as people love to get their spouse’s names inked along with their own. There are beautiful tribal tattoos of a tree which is made into a circle. The artist can blend beautifully two names beautifully into a tree using a matching font, while the shading done on the tree bark makes the art look quite realistic.

Dogs are pretty close to their owners and people who have lost their dogs often want to get a tattoo done in remembrance of their truly loyal friend. There are tattoos which show a highly detailed face of a dog with his name written right below it. On these name tattoos the artist can manage to capture the real emotions of the dog and immortalize it through a name tattoo.

The forearm is also a great place to get a name tattoo and also the most popular spot for name tattoos for men. Some tattoos feature a very crisp and clear name which has been inked in a clear cursive font. The artist can fill the font with red and black colors to create a good amount of contrast and to make the tattoo stand out.
