Choosing a tattoo design, size and location on the body;
As skin heals and ages it is important to remember that the tattoo will mature with the skin; Lines will soften and the blacks will fade to dark grey. This will happen to all skin types and can not be prevented with any aftercare. How the tattoo will look after healing is a combination of the tattoo, skin type and aftercare. During the tattoo process it is important for the client to stay relaxed and still to supply the tattoo artist the best possible surface to work on. Any rapid movements might affecting the artists ability to produce quality work.
When choosing the design, giving the tattoo artist as much free room to plan out the design will ALWAYS result in a design that is going to be made by the artists best knowledge to suit the area of the body as well as making the design correspond the best to the artists own sense of aesthetics. It is important to choose an artists that sense of design is style is corresponding to the end all result you are looking for. Giving ideas and elements for the tattoo artist to use is always welcome, as well as inspiration pictures.
With choosing a size for a tattoo design, larger is often better. For larger designs the tattoo artist is able to add more detail to the designs without compromising the longdivity of the design. This means that as the tattoo and skin ages and the lines in the tattoo naturally blur, the design will not become too unclear to "read". Larger design means that as the skin heals, there is more space for the natural "blurring" and the design will look better for longer time. There are always exception to this rule, but in general this applies to majority of tattoos.

"The warmth of your skin awakens my slumber. You are but a prey I hunt, a victim of the hunger raging within me. ...This fire that demands feeding, like a sacrifice I offer your flesh to the gods that have given me a promise of heaven and hell - within your skin I shall find my sanctuary.
Surrounded by this darkness I hunt by mere scent, touch and taste. I have no purpose for sight, it shows me no wonders, no new kingdoms. I seek you by your heat, like a stench of sins past it lingers around me. Once so prideful and gluttonous it now stands alone, stripped naked and raw. Target of my desire; you carry no worth beyond your flesh.
Within the battle of two dominating forces, one eventually falls to its knees; powerless and begging for forgiveness. So you crumble - My king without a crown.
The salt gathers on your skin, like a morning mist it puddles - ripening for gathering. But the droplets of your desire aren't what I am after; they bring no satisfaction, no vision of the hell I would bring you. Within this purgatory I will burn you to your core till our desire bends to the limits where pleasure and pain do not dare to have boundaries. Only through your tears will I taste the true essence of your faith towards my quest.
Bleed for me - let the rust within your veins corrode me.
I grant you your final request as your body presses against mine. Shall your pain be blinded by the euphoria, masked within the last grasps of your mortality. Like an animal, you have willingly walked to your slaughter, oblivious to the signs and the blood trails left behind by my psyche. So you are, truly my lamb of god, my offering, feast for the visions of eternal fires of my inferno.
I am the mouth of hell, through my teeth lays the path to your salvation." -Sara Fabel 2013
