One word is all it will take to bare a part of her soul.
That is all it will take to show something dear she holds.
One word tattoos have a charm of their own. They stand by themselves, doing the deed of what they've been asked. Letting the world take a glimpse into the person's past, present, and future. And that's all that suffices―there is no need for clutter, there is no need for long, superfluous sentences. Just an emotion, and that is enough.
One word tattoos are like that. They do their bidding, and they do it with character. The fact that they are so simple to begin with, leaves a lot that can be done with them. They can be left as they are, or they can be accompanied with a design. Then again, there are so many things to tattoo about, and in this following ThoughtfulTattoos piece, we will give you some ideas of what you can do with these kinds of tattoos and how you can enhance them better.
Tattooing Options
There are many factors that come into the picture when one talks about getting a tattoo done. There's the actual word that you'll take up, what influences the choice, the location of where you'll get the tattoo inked, the size, and the styling of the tattoo. These are some of the things that you'll have to decide before you even get to the tattoo place. You can have a sit with the artist and come up with something as well. Here are a few collages that you can look through and draw inspiration from.

Factors to Consider
In memory, in love and romance, in hope, in narcissism, in defining identity, in influence, in want ... some reasons that might coax you to get that tattoo etched. Names are some of the most common and obvious choices to make. But even if it is a universal choice, it is still one of the most personal choices. Getting the tattoo of a loved one etched―it could be a lover's name, husband's name, parent's name, a role model's name, or your own name―it is a great choice to make.
Names of Places
The love for the country or a particular city or place also acts as one of the better choices. Having the name of the place etched is a constant reminder for you of how much you love the place, and also how you want to be reminded of the place and the memories associated with it by looking over at the tattoo. Similarly, a favorite sports team might also make for a great choice.
Qualities and Influencing Words
There are several qualities that one can look into as well. These are usually used as a means to influence a person. These are the qualities that give them strength and help them in striving to be better people. Along with qualities, one can also use things that talk of a person's mental state.
Here is a list of some of the qualities, positive adjectives, as well as certain character traits and mental state terms that one can look into for word tattoos.
  • Strength
  • Love
  • Hope
  • Courage
  • Addiction
  • Solidarity
  • Misunderstood
  • Numb
  • Lost
  • Energy
  • Motivation
  • Earth
  • Moonstruck
  • Faith
  • Music
  • Loyalty
  • Spunk
  • Humor
  • Shutterbug
  • Assert
  • Peace
  • Clueless
  • Eager
  • Fair

Styling and Location
There are several factors that one has to consider when getting tattoos etched on their bodies. Here are some that you need to look into:
  • The first and foremost―how simple or complicated should the tattoo be? This largely depends on your budget.
  • What is the font that one will use for the tattoo?
  • Should one use color or make it a black and white one?
  • Is it necessary to have any design accompanying that tattoo or should the word be kept simple and short?
  • The size of the tattoo.
  • Where should the tattoo be placed? Some of the most popular places that girls prefer to get word tattoos are seen to be the wrist, insides of the arms, shoulder blades, navel and waist, across the fingers, on the ankle, at the base of the neck, lower back, behind the ear, and calves.
  • Using an ambigram is one of the up and coming choices that are seen to come into light. Ambigrams are an interesting way of getting a tattoo done. These will have two words, but they are tattooed in such a way that they spell a different name when looked at from one angle and another when looked at from a different one. For example―Faith and Hope.
One word tattoos are some of the most prominent and widely-used tattoos today. The deal is that you can turn them into something really beautiful while keeping them simple at the base, or going all out and making a mark like such. Whatever you do though, just be sure about why you are getting a word tattoo, what it means to you, and are you going to get the same rush when you look at it years later?
