Black and Grey has been around since ash and sharp things. It usually lasts much longer, because every tattoo fades but you notice a lighter color fading faster in comparison to a darker tattoo. It also has a higher contrast, and plays off of your skin type to give the tattoo more value.

There are very many types of color tattoos. A watercolor is more abstract with splashes and pastel colors and a sketched outline. Color realism is more defined, using several colors and blends to create a more realistic effect with very little outline. Traditional color tattoos are classic and simple.

There are many types of fonts used from the internet , old E, sanscript, times new roman, arial, etc. You can also have custom lettering with a variety of free style flowing lettering. Size is determined by how you want to send a message. You can use the font to tell a story.

American traditional tattoos are made up of very simple parts, but all these parts as a whole create a very bold long lasting design that can be enjoyed for years to come if done correctly. American Traditional tattoos include a bold outline and a simple color palette.

1. When choosing your first tattoo in Amarillo, going into the design process and subject matter, it is important to find a clear connection between what the tattoo is and what you want the tattoo to convey. Also, each artist has different strengths. Make sure to play to their strengths, which can help you choose a specific style, such as traditional or black and grey. 

2. Having an idea for your tattoo in Amarillo is the most important thing when getting a tattoo. Placement and size of the tattoo comes second, with your budget being the third most important . Something to consider when deciding your tattoo budget, would be the amount of detail your tattoo requires, as size and detail alter the price of a tattoo. 

3. When choosing the size of your first tattoo in Amarillo, you should consider something between two and five square inches. This will let you gain an understanding of your pain threshold, before you invest in a piece you do not have the pain tolerance for. Now, all you have to do is figure out where you want to put your tattoo, and how much you can spend on your tattoo. 

4. When choosing the placement of your tattoo, consider an area such as the upper arm or the back of your shoulder for a less painful experience. Areas such as your wrist, feet, ribs and chest have a higher potential for a painful tattoo.

5. The composition, or how your tattoo flows with your body, will also play a part in determining where the best place for your first tattoo in Amarillo is. For instance, an "S" shape will flow much better on the side of your body rather than something more symmetrical. Once you know what kind of tattoo you want and where you want to put your tattoo, it is time to consider your budget. Knowing your budget beforehand will allow the artist to gauge the amount of detail and size of your tattoo, which lets your first tattoo experience be as smooth as possible for both you and your tattoo artist. Also, depending on the size of your tattoo, you may need multiple appointments or a deposit. It is normally less expensive to get more than one tattoo at a time, because of set up costs. 

6. Prepare to get your tattoo. The day you get your first tattoo is special, and it is important to make sure that you are properly prepared. Five days before your tattooing date, you should begin drinking plenty of water, as dry skin may not take ink as well. Two days before your tattooing date, don't use any alcohol or drugs. Three hours before your tattooing appointment, eat a large meal. Finally, wear appropriate clothes to your appointment. Do not wear your finest clothes, wear light clothing that won't rub or chafe on the new tattoo.
