However, now there is a shift from the normally used pictorial tattoos to the lettering ones. In the lettering ones, there are quote and word tattoos. When a person opts for a tattoo with wordings, it can either be a single word, a couple of words, or they can also be entire quotes.
Furthermore, tattoo lettering script has an important role to play, when one decides to get a word tattoo. If one chooses a small font then chances are high that the tattoo would become invisible faster. Hence, the font should be such that it is visible even after some time has passed by.
Designs Involving Words

The beauty of this script is that it is written from right to left, unlike the usual left to right. It will also lend mystery to one's tattoo design. Kanji tattoo fonts are another option which one may want to consider. However, make sure that one has the right translation when opting for a tattoo in a foreign language.
Quite often, one would come across sports aficionados who sport the name of their favorite sports person. Names of people close to one can also be used like 'mom', 'dad', etc. There are people who have got the names of their pets tattooed.
