Get Your Inspiration On
1. FIND A BUDDY
Selfies and photos in mirrors tend to twist and turn the body area. This can create a warped shape that makes it more difficult to design your tattoo to fit you properly.
2. GET A RULER
Clear, uncolored rulers are helpful but whatever you have around the house will work as long as it's legible. Just be sure to place the ruler close to the desired tattoo area but please be sure not to obstruct or visually block the area.
3. BE BORING
Find a plain wall or background and wear neutral clothes so that the camera (and Ruby!) have an easier time focusing on the ruler and the area you are photographing.
4. CIRCLE IT
If you have an idea of the space you want tattooed, feel free to grab a marker (or added digitally afterwards) to highlight the area on the skin so as to help point us in the right direction.
5. LIGHT IT UP
Make sure photos are staged in a well lit space. Poor lighting will result in blurry or illegible photos and we will likely ask you to retake them.
6. LEVEL UP
You don't need an actual level, but you will need to hold your phone or camera and ruler as parallel to the body area as possible so as not to warp or distort the body shape and structure.
