The internet is a great resource for tattoo lovers. There are loads of tattoo websites and galleries on the net but where are the really good ones? This article gives you the low-down on what to look for and how to sort the best from the rest.
As you probably know the net is a great resource for tattoo enthusiasts. But there is so much junk out there, copied, unoriginal designs, rip-off sites…Know what I mean? So how can you find the top tattoo galleries, collections and websites? Here is a list of things to look out for.
The first thing you will want to consider is the size and quality of the collection. Most quality tattoo galleries have over a few thousand original designs. Make sure these have been submitted by professional artists. It is usually pretty easy to spot a poor site as designs are usually copied and often the image quality when you enlarge is bad. A large gallery will mean you have many variations of color, size and type in one category such as scorpion, butterfly or Celtic cross.
A huge design collection is not much good if you can't find what you are looking for. Make sure there is a search option preferably with different options like design category, size and color. If it is a collection that you download it may not have this but should at least have tattoos in separate category files.
Quite a number of tattoo galleries and websites offer more than a design collection. Some have a discussion forum to exchange ideas, get tips and meet other enthusiasts. This may not be for everyone but for those considering their first tattoo this can be a big plus. If there is a forum there should be a members area where you view others' photos and upload your own. The majority of quality sites offer bonuses in there packages. Usually ebooks make sure these are tattoo related and you will actually use them.
The next thing you want to do is to find out what other users say about it. Who would you trust more a site nobody's ever heard of or one people are raving about? Some people are put off by popular sites, thinking that loads of others will already have the same designs. But with a gallery of thousands of tattoos it is pretty unlikely you'll be sitting on the beach next to someone with exactly the same design.
The last thing to mention is the guarantee. A site looking to rip you off isn't going to offer one so check it out. Most quality websites do have a returns policy so you have nothing to lose by trying them out.
