You start by taking a few minutes to think about what you want your tattoo to do and then, for most of the designs, start designing the letters. What do we want our letters to mean? Are they going to be positive or negative? A symbol or something really strange?
You begin by making some sketches, trying to pick up some simple lines that you can build into a design. Then, with all of that information, you start creating the letters.
Here’s an example of some of my very early sketches:
To get your tattoos done, you have a few options when it comes to how you want the design to look and feel on your body. With that in mind, here are some of my favorite tattoos to get on my body.

BOSTON (CBS) — Former NFL player Michael Vick won’t try to fight his charges that he provided guns and ammunition to a convicted felon in exchange for information on drug traffickers, federal prosecutors announced Wednesday.
Vick, 37, pleaded guilty for the charges in a federal courthouse in Boston. He was given seven years of supervised release.
He was arrested last summer and pleaded guilty on three counts of gun and ammunition possession and conspiracy to commit possession of a firearm during the commission of a drug trafficking crime. The gun charges were dropped on Tuesday.
“Mr. Vick received leniency in exchange for his willingness to cooperate with federal and local investigators to find a way to stop people from illegally possessing firearms. Mr. Vick has become one of our nation’s most revered athletes and a model citizen and will always be remembered and respected here on our campus,” said Michael Roth, the head coach of the University of Massachusetts-Amherst women’s lacrosse team.
“I’m disappointed that the federal plea agreement was not made available to the public, but I believe that today’s announcement is a necessary step to move our nation in a different, safer direction, and I look forward to welcoming Mr. Vick back to the University as soon as possible,” Kacich told reporters.
Authorities say Vick conspired to provide guns and ammunition to convicted felon Ricky John Best, who was arrested in early November 2009 trying to buy a gun and six other firearms.
Prosecutors claim Vick agreed to give Best guns
