There’s a strange beauty to the way people write words, and with enough practice, it is possible to become an expert. Getting a tattoo of a unique typography is an homage to that beauty since it reflects the creativity and the artistic nature of language.
Typography is basically the study of fonts, and the variety out there is as unique as the people who might create them.
In a strange way, everyone is capable of their own unique typography.
Finding a specific font or style for a tattoo can be a challenge, but many people choose to use the font to convey a small quote that means something to them, so the quote or text should reflect the tone of the font, and vice versa. Perhaps the quote in question includes two conflicting phrases, and each phrase is meant to be represented with a different font. Without the combination of the quote and both fonts, there would be less meaning and certainly less punch to the tattoo.
Most decent tattoo artists shouldn’t have an issue replicating an existing font if you can find one or several that you like. Maybe you want to get your signature tattooed, or a hand-written note from a deceased relative so it can always be nearby. There are so many ways to use the power of words and imagery that combine to form typography.
