Though we often associate tattoos with pictures or symbols of particular objects, there is a growing population of tattoo lettering styles that reflect the written word. From bold words to statements to live by and quotes to admire, with or without accent images, tattoo lettering designs are increasingly popular in this modern day of self expression and style. Tattoo lettering essentially reflects the style and attitude of the wearer to a very large extent. It emphasizes on projecting the image of the wearer in whatever way that is desired. Essentially a lettered tattoo may comprise of various fonts and writing styles. These tattoo fonts are large in variety and can thus be selected accordingly depending upon the needs of the individual. Needs vary differently from individual to individual. Owing to the large selection of fonts available, each and every individual gets to choose his or her most preferred style. And the designs can become ever more personal when you factor in a favorite phrase or saying. Perhaps you want to have a particular poem inked into your skin. Names done in classic tattoo lettering but a bit of caution needs to be exercised here. You don’t want to add your lovers name to your skin and then break up six months later, now do you?
If you want some tattoo lettering you have plenty to choose from out there and of course you can have it say anything you want it to say. You can be like this tattoo and have the text itself be the whole tattoo or you can put tattoo lettering above or below or in the middle of your image, to say something about it. The one we are looking at reads: I look inside myself and see my heart is black. Now, those are either lyrics from some famous song that I am unfamiliar with or these words are some sort of a self fulfilling prophecy. Meaning they are someone’s excuse to themselves for being a bad human being. Because when someone says something like this about themselves, that’s what it is, an excuse. An excuse for bad behavior. One that makes that person feel a little better as if they cannot help themselves but we all know that would be untrue. People can always help themselves.
My guess it that this saying comes from some song. That is the most likely scenario anyway. You probably never thought that a small amount of tattoo lettering could open up such a can of worms. But it sure doesn’t take much.
