Type Tattoos

There’s an upcoming event at AGDA (Australian Graphic Designers Association) called Different Strokes for Different Folks and one of the speakers is tattoo artist Davey Llewes who is going to talk about the graphic design process in tattooing. So I started to wonder about graphic designers and their tattoos: what fonts/styles do they use. Timesless? Ornate? Classic?

This guy got custom handwritten text by a calligrapher, good move. I really like this one, it’s elegant without being girly plus it’s probably the first time I’ve ever seen my name written on anything.
