    Most of these I would argue are not good at all for tattoos. As someone who’s had tattoos with lettering you should know a few things:

    1) The larger the letters the better. However, even with most of these, over time, the ink will start to have a “smudge” effect (when the ink tends to run together) rendering a majority of these completely unreadable.
    2) You should also stay away from old English fonts unless you really really want them. Most of these styles are hard to read (even in large sizes) and over time, will smudge badly.
    3) Do use fonts that are clear, and have little or no styling on them. The Anglo Saxon, Janda and Shanghai are good examples of these. Other examples include more traditional typefaces like Helvetica or Verdana.

      I needed to read this about 3 years ago….oh well.

    • Steven Narbonne

      Wise words, indeed. Tattoos and their lettering needs serious consideration. A good method is to visit tattoo establishments to view their “flash” and interview their artists.

    Dude your so wrong, it doesnt smudge. I have had a beautiful script on my chest that i drew up myself for years, it has high detail and has never smudged or anything of the sort. If you dont want your tattoo’s to look messed up, dont gain or lose a lot of weight, slight fading and needing touch ups goes for any piece after the years pass. Dont listen to this clown. They dont smudge..thats not possible, Hes saying use ugly, boring fonts basically.

    • xero

      Bhill by your own admittance you’ve had your ink touched up but even baring that in about 20 years it will look like an ugly bruise

  • nikki

    actually, he IS right. tattoos DO smudge overtime. “bhill”, you should educate yourself before you advise people against sound advice…and before you get anymore tattoos that will look like crap in 10 years. fool.

  • dbierman

    They don’t smudge, I’ve had some for over 25 years and they haven’t smudged. Those of you who say they do, as if you know, I would venture to say don’t have any at all.

    The old ones I have are faded and need to be touched up to look like they did 25 years ago because the sun fades them or the body absorbs some of the coloring. Sometimes the fine lines tend to widen as the body absorbs them but absolutely nothing that looks like a smudge.

    I have friends that have some older even than mine and theirs still look good.

    Take your own advice and don’t give advice on a subject you know nothing about.

  • adam bernard

    it’s clear to tatoos both do and don’t smudge at the same time

  • tattoorich412

    I am going to start out by saying that i am a tattoo artist who owns his own shop….tattoos do not smudge….they do however fade depending on who did the tattoo and what ink they used, if your tattoo looks smudged it is in the industry called a blow out…what that means is whoever did the tattoo did not have the correct needle depth while applying the tattoo. this causes the ink to set between layers as to where it is supposed to. It may also look smudged if the person used a cheaper ink, this causes the break down and absorption of ink further into the skin…any questions?

    • MyBodyIsACanvas

      Rich, you may own a shop, but you said exactly what he did. that tattoos can “appear smudged” he never said they do smudge. yes needle depth, ink, skill all play a role. but even high end ink has a half-life and as they start to pass the more ink with break down into its original compounded material and absorb into nearby cells, obviously when it comes to fine line work none of us are perfect and as colors fade and absorption happens (which can be cause by anything form sun, medication, caffeine, and infection, or a wound) this coming from a aficionado who happens to be a biologist. so you’re both right. no need to slam the kid for it man.

      and Dade please please man you know people will harp on you be careful your wordage and a little advice. unless your the artist being asked font give advice i find it hard to believe you have 62 font tattoos each persons experience is their own.

      Rich i think you can agree, what’s worse than the shop door opening and having some kid or adult point at a wall and say I want that or bring that good old wad of papers saying put all these together. Best advice take a text you like to you artist tell him/her how much you like it and see if they will create a font of their own, as I’m sure rich will agree the tattoo is art the artist’s art and he ultimately wants it to show his style not a paste and stick..

      use these as examples but make your own fine tune it multiple times and when you find one you love they created have them do 3 more to make sure its permanent as you all know. and most of all love the work, and appreciate teh artist, you tip[ a pizza man right…Tip your piercers and tattoo artist its how they make a living a pizza last 5 minutes and you give the guy a 5, a tattoo is forever dependence on the size tip them well and they will do you right as return business. and be prepared kind like Pokemon you get one and you gotta get em all. peace and love folks

  • AntLynn

    Done too deep or not deep enough they “bleed” into each other.

    • slinger

      never seen a blow out on a shallow line…only fallout….or fade…but yep too deep and its blotting paper.

  • Lyndsay

    I have a tattoo with the “windsong” font on the inside of my right leg. It’s only three words an it’s really beautiful. I think it works because it is only three words though. I probably wouldn’t use it for a paragraph though just because you wouldn’t really be able to read it well.

    But who’s to say what’s good and what’s not? It’s your body, do what you want.

  • Dee

    Ok, i have a question…im wanting to get another tattoo of a rebel heart with my cb handle around it…the only thing is, i cant decide on what type of lettering i should use. The heart will be on my right shoulderblade and prolly the size of my fist..i would like something feminine, yet fits my cb handle and the rebel heart. My handle is Southern Style Princess. Any suggestions??

    • MyBodyIsACanvas

      Southern Style

      “heart goes here”

      Princess

      depends on whether you like traditional tattoo fonts or something that is blocked letters, a script and calligraphy can have some more feminine features, but keep in mind your doing a rebel heart hard to make the 2 flow great best advice ask your artist he/she can draw up a bunch of mocks and take them some fonts you like

    Does anyone have suggestions for a good font to write roman numerals in?

  • Confuzzled jack

    Has anyone got a good font i could use just fpr four letters around either a rose or nautical star i was thinking something like arabic but im not sure:/

  • http://www.satyathakur.com Satya Thakur

    Feathergraphy Font looks awesome. Thanks for sharing!

  • http://www.craftynitti.com/fonts/tattoo Dale Robinson

    I like Blackletter font and Shanghai font a lot. I have my mother’s name written on my upper back in cursive font and it looks great.

  • veronica

    I’ve been wanting to get a tattoo on my lower back with the word “Forbidden” I don’t have any tattoos, therefore I’m not sure what to expect. I have no idea what text would be best for that word to read clear and reduce the risk of a “smudged appearance or blow out or absorbtion into nearby cells” as well. Any suggestions? In advance, Thank You

  • Tarun Jaitely

  • Prabha
