Getting a tattoo can be one of those decisions that take an instant to decide, but a lifetime to regret. Quickly flipping through a binder at your local tattoo shop and making an impulsive decision could cause you to kick yourself later on. A tattoo should have a deep meaning to you. Something you will be proud to show off to your friends. Explaining the "meaning behind the ink" shouldn't be an embarrasing moment that you will regret for years to come.
We searched online for a website or service that would facilitate this important decision and found one of the most popular services available online at TattooMeNow.com
is a membership site created to give people the opportunity to make the decision about getting a tattoo in peace and quiet from the comfort of their home.
What makes TattooMeNow unique and a great source of inspiration is that it’s also a community where people can interact and share photos and videos of their tattoos.
Inside the membership area, TattooMeNow features the following five components:
TattooMeNow Design Gallery – This gallery contains over 3,523 unique designs in 40 different categories. A few of the categories included are, tribal tattoos, biker tattoos, butterfly tattoos, Chinese tattoos, fairy tattoos and abstract tattoos among many other categories. One convenient feature about the design gallery is that you can print out whatever design you choose and bring it to your favorite artist. The bookmark feature makes it easy to go back to designs that you may want to use later on. A person could easily spend hours browsing through the myriad of unique designs, and come up with many original ideas for their next tattoo.
Members Gallery - One of the best features we found with Tattoo Me Now is the active and helpful community. Inside the members gallery we were delighted to see hundreds of tattoo pictures people posted in different categories. People post pictures of their tattoos to see what others think about them, seek insight on what to add to a design ,or to get advice about what color changes to make to their tattoo. For each tattoo picture you see, you can make a comment about the picture, or rate the picture using the five star rating system. We found the member photos to be neatly organized into categories which made it easy to find designs in specific areas that interested us.
Studio Directory – This directory in tattoomenow contains a handy list of 10,000 tattoo studios in over 38 countries. Easily find a professional tattoo studio in your local area by searching through the directory. Also you can avoid tattoo studios that have a bad rap by taking advantage of the 5 star rating and comment review features. Here you can share your experiences with the studio whether they were good or provide a warning for others about the studios that were not so good.
Discussion Forum -The thriving Tattoomenow discussion forum is a great place to meet other people and get answers to your most pressing questions from professional tattoo artists or from the other members. This is a great place to get other people's opinions about a tattoo design you have in mind or to get answers to questions that are difficult to find anywhere else.
Video Vault - This is an entertaining part of the Tattoo Me Now members area because you can see videos other people have made showing off their tattoos. It’s also educational because you can see tattoo artists doing their working and giving professional advice about the art of tattooing in general and even giving advice on topics such as removing a tattoo. If you ever wondered what goes on at those tattoo conventions, besides tattooing, this is a great place to get some insight.
Media Library – This section of the members’ area in Tattoo Me Now contains some helpful educational material on the art of tattooing. Some of the titles of the eBooks available were, “How to Tattoo in 12 Easy Steps”, “Infection Prevention”, “You and Your Tattoo”, “Getting Inked”, and the “Xtasys Tattoo Designs eBook”. There were also a myriad of other eBooks in the health and fitness category available for any of the members to read.
The main complaints we had with the TattooMeNow membership was the lengthy wait for support requests, but of course most of the questions you might have can be answered in the discussion forum by other professional tattoo artists.
We noticed the tattoomenow membership area appears to be consistently updated with new designs. Throughout the month of March 2008 over 300 new designs were added to the member gallery, and 4 new eBooks were added to the Media Library. The Tattoo News section keeps the members updated with the latest changes to the members’ area.
Whether you’re trying to get ideas for your first tattoo or make an addition to the collection, TattooMeNow is a great source of inspiration, a chance to interact with other members that share the same interest, and to make new friends. If you take advantage of the many benefits inside the member’s area, chances are your next tattoo could be a mark you will be proud of for life.
