Size Does Matter

Size Does Matter

We get a lot of people coming in, wanting just a tiny little thing, either on their wrist or even finger. Some of the time, shrinking your image down might not be a problem, but there is such a thing as going too small! 

What many people don’t know is that over time (5-10 years), the lines of a tattoo will spread just the tiniest of bits. On larger tattoos, it’s a movement you may not even notice. Lettering, however, can become completely unreadable. 

For example (found off of Google):

See how the open spaces have almost completely closed up? That a great example of going “too small”. Just because it looks cute on Pinterest doesn’t mean it will survive the test of time.

So, when your artist recommends sticking to a certain size, listen to them. They know what they’re talking about, and only want the best for you.
