Imagine that you don’t like your tattoo anymore?
What can you do? Keep it and be sad about it or go for an expensive erasing technique that may work or not ?
Well, there is another way: using CALLIGRAPHY.
You can revive your old design by cancelling its original meaning and giving it a new one that makes more sense to you!
In fact, calligraphic designs offer this unique possibility to reshape your tattoo. What it does is that it just keeps the original lines and adds a few more in the right place, which should be enough to completely transform it.
The new tattoo will not necessarily be much bigger and the harmony of the shapes can easily be maintained.
“Using the old design to make a new one”.
I can give you an example.
A few years ago, a customer ordered a tattoo design with a name in Arabic calligraphy. Later, she contacted me because she did not want to have that name tattooed on her skin anymore. She wanted to try to transform the tattoo first before considering an expensive erasing technique.
Therefore, we started thinking about what text could a strong and permanent meaning to her. She naturally proposed to check if the idea could work with the names of her 2 kids.
After the analysis of the original design, the best solution that came out was to use Latin letters instead of Arabic. On this design, there was a possibility to minimize the add-ons so that the new tattoo would not get much bigger.
She was so happy to hear that this option was feasible. She ordered the tattoo design and the result was magic.
First, you could not see the original design anymore. Your eyes would focus on the two names and if you had not seen the other tattoo before, you would probably not imagine that it was Arabic calligraphy.
If you want to change a tattoo, think about CALLIGRAPHY.
