Finding small tattoo ideas online can be a nightmare. With so much information out there, it is often difficult to find new and inspiring tattoo ideas. Whether there is a specific tattoo idea you need, or you’re just looking for small tattoo ideas for your latest tattoo, ideas found online can sometimes leave you rather uninspired.
Most tattoo ideas websites these days have the same pictures, all copied from other tattoo sites, and one thing that can be frustrating, is seeing only tattoo pictures of other people’s tattoos. Looking at another person’s arm tattoo, their lower back tattoo or their shoulder tattoo does sometimes spark ideas, and it could give you ideas on where you want your tattoos, and how a certain tattoo would look on you. But these type of tattoo designs arent much use, its not like you can take a picture of someone else tattoo design to your tattoo artist.
Finding the type of small tattoo designs that you can download and print the real tattoo art that you see in tattoo shops can be tricky. Tattoo art is kept very ‘secret’ people do not really want to share it. Have you ever been in a tattoo shop, and saw a tattoo idea that you liked? Did it cross your mind to take a picture of that tattoo idea? Well, it probably did, but common sense (and a bit of fear) probably kicked in, and reminded you that you will be kicked out!
Tattoo artists will do what it takes to protect their tattoo ideas – after all, it is their livelihood! They rely on this art to make them money, and treat it as theft if you take a picture of their tattoo ideas!
So how do we get great small tattoo designs?
Well, option one is paid tattoo directories. Tattoo artists get paid to submit their tattoo art, and you, will have to pay to use it! These types of Tattoo Libraries have thousands of tattoos, and usually charges you for membership.
Given that these libraries have thousands of tattoo done professional tattoo artists, they are usually well worth it. Examples of these type of sites are Tattoo Me Now and Chopper Tattoo. Both these Tattoo Libraries charge less than $37 for lifetime membership.
Option two, is clever searching. There are small tattoo ideas websites online that give away tattoo flash art for free! The tricky part of this is to find them. One trick I have learned is to make use of the Google syntax. For example, say you want free small tattoo ideas, you would use the Google allintitle: syntax, like this. Go try it out for yourself! This searches only sites with “free small tattoo ideas” in the title, useful to find sites specifically catering for what you want. This can work in Google image search too, to find pictures of free small tattoo ideas.
