You have a special phrase, an excerpt from a song, a poem or even a word, and you really want to get a tattoo to eternalize that “mantra” on your skin to honor or motivate you. But here comes the biggest question of all, which font / typography / letter (whatever you want to call it) to use?

I've seen a lot of people choosing the tattoo letter through Word and the fonts available on the computer itself, but there are other ways to choose your perfect font, and believe me, there is a huge world of font options that can fit you - if you don't know.

Two sites I recommend are the DaFont it's the NetFontes, I chose the font of my most recent DaFont tattoo, there you can put your sentence and test it in various fonts.

Calligraphy / Calligraphy Tattoo Fonts

The handwriting category fonts that come within the “handcrafted” fonts look great for light and reflective tattoos. It reminds of relaxation and sensuality by its organic forms and, in some cases, loaded with ornaments.

Stick / Basic / Basic
Indicated for tattoos with tougher and more impactful senses, the serigraphy bat typography (“straight” fonts that have a “perinha” at the end of the letters) or without, are harder and visually heavy typography. Therefore, more suitable for phrases that have the same characteristics.

Tattoo Font - Sans Serif

Gothic / Gothic
The sources of the Gothic category are those based on ancient and medieval books. Even if you don't do anything related to Design, you've probably seen it in a children's story book or even in history classes how much he came to know who Gutemberg was. This font is ideal for quotes from children's or medieval-era stories.

Old school
This typography is one of the "favorites" of tattooed, it is not a matter of the personality of the phrase you are going to tattoo, but of your style. This font has much more to do with your personality, but because it is a "heavy" handwriting it is worth saying that for long sentences it does not fit very well.

Of course, besides these there are thousands of fonts, it's worth a lot of searching and finding the one that has the most to do with you and your tattoo. Always worth looking carefully for something that will be part of you forever;)
