Are you looking some cool letters to get tattoos of your childrens’ initials or your partner?
Now with Idea Tattoo you can all find your favourite pair of initials and the most tattoo-able too! Every letter is drawn in combination with all 26 letters of the alphabet and in many different tattoo styles. Find your favourite pair!
The first five in the series – with the letters A, B, C, D and E – were published in five consecutive issues but then we realised that it was more practical to feature at least two initials at a time. So from Idea Tattoo 135 until the last issue we have always focused on two letters.

LOTS OF FANTASTIC IDEAS FOR YOUR PAIR OF INITIALS
In every issue of Idea Tattoo every page shows the pairs of initials in a different style, even when the letters are inverted (for example the letters AX from the first issue are not the same as the XA you can see in the last one).
In one series we could have offered you pairs of letters in the same style each time but that would have been limiting, because the style of a font (the look of the letters) might be pleasing to some but not everyone.
So we preferred a more liberal and in some ways more creative approach, with different looking pairs of letters each time, to give you a very varied, complete range in terms of graphic design, in order to satisfy as many tastes as possible.
We have attempted to offer you the most attractive pairs, which are also the most tattoo-able, so you’ll find pairs of initials drawn in Gothic style, or ornate 19th century calligraphy, and many more styles besides, even creating hybrid combinations where we have made a fusion of different fonts.
So, perhaps the graphics used for your pair is not exactly what you would have chosen and you might have liked another style. We have received various emails like this – “I really like the EG, have you got FB in the same font?».
Each pair of initials we have published is a one-off but that’s where your tattoo artist comes in: using your favourite style as a guide he or she can reconstruct the look using whichever initials you want.
If you missed the issue with your initials, or you are a tattoo artist and you want the complete A to Z but missed some parts of the series, now you can find them. And if you have already got your favourite initials tattoo (or on the way to get them…) as a result of our pages, send us a photo and may it bring you good luck!
