Have you ever tried to guess what somone is thinking. Well thats what its like for your artist when a client is giving a vague description of their idea for their next tattoo.specifically when the description includes " i want it to look beautiful" or "I want it to pop", beauty is a matter of opinion or is in the eyes of the beholder. in other words, one persons idea of what is beautiful or visually appealling can and will vary from one person to the next.
The best thing you can do is bring reference pictures that visually convey's what you consider to be beautiful, etc... This way the artist has a clearer understanding of what your trying to describe and not guessing what is in your minds eye, if we could read minds we wouldnt be tattooing for a living.also, if your able to sketch the general layout of your design it can be helpful for the artist to gain the basic concept of your idea.
Practice these simple steps toward your tattoo design and your less likely to fustrate your artist. the last thing you want is a pissed off tattoo artist making permanent marks on your body, in return pissing you off because you didn't get what you are looking for in a tattoo.
