Lettering and script tattoos take many forms. Samples of lettering tattoos can be found on people across the world, in almost any language. Some ideas for lettering tattoos are Bible verses, quotes, dates of important life events and names. Lettering tattoos come in any font or language imaginable. Although many lettering tattoos are basic and include a simple outline of a name or date, some lettering tattoos are elaborate testaments to love, death and spirituality. Classic samples of lettering tattoos can be found in flash tattoo art and usually includes a name in a banner around a heart. These tattoos were popular with soldiers during World War II. These soldiers often got lettering tattoos with their significant other's name in a banner. Samples of lettering tattoos can often be found in tattoos where the lettering is not the main focus of the tattoo. Some of the best ideas for lettering tattoos come from religious scriptures.
Another popular inspiration for lettering tattoos come from military sayings. "Semper Fidelis," the motto of the United States Marine Corps, means "Always Faithful" in Latin. "Semper Paratus" is the motto of the United States Coast Guard and is Latin for "Always Prepared." Some people use samples from their favorite book or lyrics from a favorite song as the subjects for their lettering tattoos. One trend in lettering tattoos is to get a saying spread out between both wrists. For example, some people get "Stay" tattooed on one wrist and "Strong" on the other for the phrase "Stay Strong."
