Let’s just give another example: the single line style is so large that it is almost the limit. The picture below has begun to balance the visual sense with black blocks.

2. The size of the tattoo must match the complexity of the pattern
In general, more complex graphs need to be larger, and simpler graphs need to be smaller.
If the content is simple but you want to do a lot, it will be silly and thick, as shown below

If the content is complex but you want to make it small (knock on the blackboard), it will have the following results:
1. This tattoo looks very crowded, and the little black cricket can’t see what it is
2. It is inevitable that the tattoo will faint in a few years, it will completely become a little dark
This is the picture below (wrist). When the tattoo artist says “Don’t be too young”, don’t do it.

As mentioned earlier, different styles have appropriate sizes. In fact, it is mainly because the different styles have different degrees of complexity (such as sketch styles usually have many details / single lines usually have less details), which affects the size.
If you are not able to determine the appropriate size, you can directly ask your tattoo artist after the pattern is determined (at least the style is determined): “How big is this picture?” Please try to avoid thinking about a small size and expressing a lot The content is 100% crowded and ugly.

3. The size of the tattoo must fit the body shape
Every body part has its shape and size.
It is mainly determined by the shape of the human body in this part, and the body of the guest is the second reference.
For example, a triangle is suitable for the back of the neck. Usually there are more inverted triangles, but the figure below uses a regular triangle.

If you first determine the pattern to be patterned, you can find the appropriate body part based on the pattern itself. If a body part is determined first, then a suitable pattern shape can be found according to this part.
For example, Xiaoming particularly likes a small triangle with an inverted triangle, so Xiaoming can consider “suitable for inverted triangle” positions: the center of the back of the neck, the center of the inner side of the forearm, and the center of the back of the calf. (There is too much content about “what body part is suitable for what shape”, I will write slowly later)

4. Consider scalability
Scalability means that if you want to add other tattoos to the edge in the future,
1. Will it match the current tattoo?
2. What are the possible combinations?
3. Do you mind if it doesn’t deserve to look uncoordinated?
This is actually quite professional. Students can directly throw 1 or 2 points to your tattoo artist. Just think about point 3.

to sum up
This article is intended to give everyone a concept: The most appropriate size for a tattoo is not determined arbitrarily. It is related to the style you choose, but also to the part you choose. It’s related to the figure but the relationship is not as big as the first two. Looking at the pictures a lot can cultivate the feeling and make you make a more appropriate decision. I hope to help everyone 🙂
