Legible Fonts for Tattoos

Recommended Posts

Chawls    476

I'm getting a tattoo that's a word. However, I'm brown skinned and many people my shade and darker often use fonts that I find illegible. So, with your vast knowledge of fonts, what's a good one for a tattoo?

If it matters, my tattoo will read: La Fierté. It's French for "pride" and will represent my Louisiana Creole pride.

I'd definitely stay away from something thin and cursive. But i'd say something thick and elegant for something like Pride to be tattooed on.

Make sure have a good tattoo artist, that's the most important. A legible font can become a mess in a hurry with the wrong person.

Size and placement on your body will also affect this. So, any more info?

I seriously hope they break up!

In which case he really has a limited dating pool to choose from. Too bad his girlfriend's name isn't Jennifer. Better chances then.

One of my friends has "univers" tattooed on his arm in Univers. Looks great. I would use a bold classic sans serif. Just make sure you use an artist that is known for text.

My buddy got "with your shield or on it" tattooed on his arm in JokerMan. He thought it looked awesome.

We are no longer friends.

I would have stabbed him in the tattoo. It would have improved it. Fu***ng Jokerman.

Apparently he was busy stabbing himself in the arm with heroin needles, so he likely saw something more out of it then.
