Tattoo stencils are like any other stencil. The only difference is where you apply them. So finding the right design is the key. Here are a few
free printable stencils and suggestions.
Here are three designs that you might consider for one of your
body stencils. Next to each one are some suggestions of other pages on this web site where you can find stencils that might be just what you have in mind.
A popular category of tattoos would be Tribal Stencils. These stencils are typically done with black or one color and represent a culture. The types of Tribal tattoos are very very vast and differ from region to region and have changed over time. Like most tattoos, Tribal tattoos were to communicate something about the individual like rank within the tribe, wealth or tribe affiliation.
I still remember the compliment my mother paid to my high school boyfriend. She said, “At least all of his tattoos are spelled correctly.” I’m not really sure how she meant it but the point is that you should always make sure your spelling is right especially before you permanently imprint in into your skin!
This design comes from the
Celtic Stencils. Quite often tattoos are chosen for the connection they lend to an individuals lineage. Also, on this site you will find the
Celtic Cross Stencil which could also be used as a tattoo stencil.
The Eagle Stencil is a popular sign of American Patriotism which has soared since 9-11.
In the right column is a list of some of the other Cool Stencils you can find on this site. You may be surprised to find suitable tattoo stencils in some of the other categories you may not have originally considered. Keep an open mind and browse around.
