The Japanese sleeve tattoo has long been accepted as a symbol of both spiritual and social status. Although after World War II, the Emperor of Japan was quick to outlaw them since he wants to improve the country’s appearance. And much like anything else that gets outlawed, people began envying what they couldn’t have – Which is what happened in the case of the Yakuza, also known as the Japanese mafia. The Yakuza weren’t the only ones to adopt the traditional art of tattooing – Foreigners did the same as well. The Japanese style sleeve tattoo has a beautiful floral design, a deep meaning, as well as a colorful motif.
Since dotwork tattoos have been having their peak in popularity, another style has also become very popular: sacred geometry tattoos. Most of the times the two styles go together, geometric tattoos are often performed using the dotwork technique (as are animals, occult symbols and engraving inspired tattoos). With sacred geometry we refer to those shapes and patterns that are found in nature and that are perfect, such as the spiral of the golden section (we're sure you've seen the nautilus shell in many tattoos), and other designs such as the flower of life or the Gordian knot. Most of the times these designs and patterns are perfectly symmetrical, and generally include circle shapes. One of the most common designs are mandalas, generally squares containing a circle and many other geometric shapes, forming a whole with a radial balance. Platonic solids like the dodecahedron and the icosahedron are common as well, as are all the shapes that recall the idea of oneness and connection with the natural world that surrounds us. Sacred geometry tattoos are very spiritual tattoos.

Do some research on your artist. This is important since you will be entrusting your body to this person for several hours. Pick the right artist for you at least one week before the procedure. If possible, look at their portfolio first before confirming if this artist is the right one for you. See if you like their work, or if their design fits the type of look that you want for your future tattoo. Sometimes, their work is displayed on the Internet (on social media sites like Instagram), or on the window of their shop. Browse through reviews of the artists and the parlor itself online, since this can ultimately determine if you want to hire this artist to do your tattoo.

Card symbols have long been popular symbols to get inked. The ace of spades is usually the most popular one to get but not far behind are the Queens. The queen of clubs symbolises a strong willed and positive person. Tattoos in between the fingers usually need to get redone every few years as they do fade due to the amount of rubbing that occurs there.
