Tattoo Writing

Tattoo lettering is one of the most important parts of your tattoo if you are looking for a script tattoo. You will need to find a tattoo script font you like and that looks good with the image that you want (if you want one) and the style that you like.

You have to decide on what to write. It can be a single word, a phrase, or a sentence. Then decide on the tattoo font to use. You will also need to decide if you want to use lowercase letters or uppercase letters or a combination of them.

You can play around with our free tattoo generator until you find a design that you like. When you go to your tattoo artist, show him or her the font style that you would like and see if they can create it for you. If you show them a sample of the design that you want then it will be easier to explain what you are looking for.

When it comes to tattoo writing, there are no rules. You want to find a design that you love since it will be on your skin forever. Try a few of our tattoo lettering styles before you make a decision.

Different fonts for tattoos

Here are some cool tattoo fonts.

Cursive tattoo font

The script tattoo is one of the most popular tattoos in the world. You can use a quote, names, or a slogan. A tattoo script font is written in calligraphy and mimics cursive handwriting. It is based on a varied and fluid stroke similar to handwriting.

Old English font tattoo style

This old English Roman numeral tattoo font generator will produce Gothic letters or a vintage tattoo font. Old English fonts are quite popular on tattoos. See Gothic Font

Typewriter font tattoo style

This font is great for word tattoos with a typewriter style font.

Tattoo number fonts

If you are going to include numbers or dashes in your tatt then you will need a number font. If you include numbers and letters then you will probably want to use the same font for both. Choose a font that has special characters and ligatures if you want to include punctuation.

Tattoo Writing Fonts by Gender

Tattoo fonts for women

Many women prefer a more feminine font or an elegant script. Cursive handwriting is a popular choice. Choose one with swashes if you like the thin strokes at the ends of words or letters.

Tattoo fonts for men

Whereas the cursive tattoo font above can be quite feminine, tattoo fonts for men are usually more masculine. All simple tattoo fonts can be used by men including the Old English font below and the typewriter font above. Fonts for men usually have bold lines.
