More recently however there has been a revival in the tattoo of a gemini sign and there are many new designs that are full of brilliant colors and new design motifs for anchor tattoos. There has been a revival in more traditional tattoos.

As always history, symbolism and meaning provide an interesting overlap of cultures and times.

If you are thinking about getting an anchor tattoo it helps to know the background on them and do some research to find out the different meaning and symbolism of anchor tattoos. Some common designs in ankle tattoos are a tribal symbol, a floral arrangement or an initial.

An ankle tattoo can be small enough that it isn’t noticeable unless the person is very close. Many professional women choose this type of tattoo because it isn’t overbearing and at the same time it allows them to carry something personal on their bodies.
Once you have decided on a design and coloring for your tattoo of a gemini sign you’ll want to visit a reputable establishment that does tattoos. My personal preference for locating a trustworthy tattooist is to browse the internet. Always be sure to ask the tattoo artist for a list of references that you can check out for yourself.

The next step once you have found a suitable tattoo shop is to select a design that meets your requirements. If you come there without a design in mind they will be able to show you a range of images that you can choose from. Most people prefer a smaller design for ankle tattoos and if the artist feels that yours is too large, they will work with you to bring it down to a scale that is more appropriate.

Getting a tattoo involves piercing the skin, and so there is going to be some pain involved, no matter how small the tattoo and no matter where it is on your body. The amount and type of pain experienced is highly variable depending on each individual’s tolerance to and acceptance of pain.

While tattooing, the needles puncture the skin at a very fast rate and at a variable depth. The amount of discomfort you will suffer, depends on the size of the tattoo, where it is located and the length of the solid outline.

The least hurtful part of the process is usually the shaded sections that do not require the same degree of needle penetration as the darker outline.

Most people describe the sensation of being tattooed as similar to a warm sensation combined with a scratchy feeling. Generally, gemini sign tattoos are more painful if applied to areas of the body where there is less muscle and fatty tissue covering bone, like wrists, ankles, chests, and other normally sensitive body areas.

Upper arms are usually the least painful, while the ankles and sternum can be quite sensitive.

The tattoo pain is certainly not unbearable, here are some tips for coping with and minimizing the pain:
Find a reputable tattooist that you feel comfortable with to get the tattoo work done, the confidence you get from a tattooist can minimize your pain to the highest.

You should never take any pain killers or drugs to try and reduce the pain of your tattoo.
Go in with some determination and accept the fact that a few hours of discomfort without giving the tattooist a hard time will help ensure that you get a first-rate tattoo. If you feel you can’t take the pain anymore, tell your tattooist.

Take a short break, or come back in a few days. Tattoos don’t have to be applied all in one sitting. Break up your session if needed. Listen to music or let your imagination go wild during the procedure, a certain degree of distraction set by your self will help you put less concentration on the pain.
