'What's in a name'? Well, I would say one's identity, personality and probably their entire life. Few of us realize the importance of the name – whatever it spells or denotes. It is however, the only easy way of helping us communicate with each other, since it helps us address our present audience, and absent ones, with much more ease.
Names are everything in today's world. They are your very identity, and to lose your name is to lose your identity. Hence, whatever happens to you, god forbid that it does in the first place, but if by any chance, a person has damaged his memory enough to have trouble recollecting people, even himself, he might not even be able to find his own identity on his own at any point of time. This would be a very sad thing to happen to an individual who has spent his life with a particular identity, and who has had to change it or be reminded of who he actually is.
I mean, you ought to sit and think someday the way I do (everyday, since I am paid just for this), and realize just exactly how and to what magnitude names affect our identities and in turn, our lives. In order to pay a tribute either to the concept of names or to a specific person, whether you or someone beloved, the best way to do so would be through the means of the most famous form of body art – tattoos.
Name tattoo designs are a sure and fantastic way of ensuring a unique and special tattoo, for your special self, or the special one to whom it is dedicated. Name tattoo designs are quite flexible, in more ways than one. They can be written in any kind of font, from delicate calligraphy to bold balloon lettering. They can fit into almost any size in any corner of the body, and can be shaded with various hues, as decided by the wearer. The best part about name tattoo designs is that they are perhaps the most permanent way of declaring love to someone given with a vow of lifelong commitment.
A wonderful way of depicting a name is through an ambigram of it, which can read the same even upside-down. This will be fun to design, and definitely unique. Once you have decided on all the aspects of your tattoo, though, I suppose you can get on with the inking and then the exhibition of your favorite, specially designed name tattoo designs.
