@formula - what you see is a combination of 2 of the font styles to what I liked. I had to play with the kerning a bit since some spaces between words were very odd....
I looked at the scipt fonts on the site... overall I love them, but based on the rules my tattoo person gave me, they'll run together. While I wany something I love, I want something that won't look bad in 10 years (assuming I take care of it).... hence the one that it a bit more typographic.
what was the main font on momento dude? the "find him and kill him"?
these ligatures and swashes would be perfect:
It looks good to me...go for it mate
i got my first tat 2 months ago, didn't get a type one in the end but looked at loads of typefaces initially. This is a nice option designed by Alejandro Paul especially for skin.
- for me thats far too super cliche tattoo typeset
oh and - post a photo here when you're done - i'm a huge fan of type tattoos :)
You should let the tattoo artist design the letters really.
Tattoo types are nice because of their irregularity, the handrawn feeling they have. Designing them on a computer is a mistake IMO.
And if your tattooist can't draw this kind of things, then you'd better find another one.
lots to respond to...
original caligraphy - I loved it, but I can't open it up enough at the size I want to get it to work. The tattooer said within 2 years it would most likely be a blob. Even with this guys chest style...several letters will probably run together in the next few years.... which sucks.
@monNom - I don't see a link to buy the font... I could try to piece it together by hand, but I like the typographic cleanliness.
@set - yeah, Dunlap.
I sort of like the font/script from instrmntl.
...I liked the type based approach if I could do Betsy's. Seeing some tattoo fonts, I wanted something more unique and personal. I like the cleanliness and "type" look of it
I'll have to think some more tonight... appointment is tomorrow, but maybe I'll push it. Don't know.
