Inspiration. Looking in dictionaries, there are usually more than one definition for this word.

One of the definitions refers to the action of introducing air or another gaseous substance into the lungs. It goes without saying how important this action is, without it we couldn't breathe, and we couldn't smoke either!
The other definitions for inspiration present very similar concepts:

Sudden lucidity that a person feels and favors the search for solutions to a problem;
Conception of ideas that allow to undertake a project;
Stimulus felt by the artist and that drives creation;

From the Latin inspiratĭo, it can also refer to the illumination that a divinity or a supernatural force brings to a person.
Definición de Inspiración
Wherever this impulse, stimulus or outburst comes from, it is always essential and welcome when creating a tattoo.

En la elaboración de los dibujos de los tatuajes, por supuesto, es importante estar inspirado. Pero crear un bonito tatuaje no es solamente trabajo del tatuador, ya que cabe a aquel que lo llevará en la piel decidir lo que quiere.

Animo a todos los que quieran tatuarse que disfruten de la búsqueda por estos dibujos que os acompañarán y representarán.

We can find inspiration everywhere, there are times when we even have to open our eyes and it's already there, the way to capture an idea we have for a tattoo.

On other occasions it is difficult to find inspiration, we want to represent an idea and we do not know what iconography we can use. Or we really like a drawing but we don't know which ideas are associated with that figure.

In these cases it can be very helpful to document yourself, study, talk to others, learn new stories. Learning and remembering can motivate us to find the necessary inspiration to sketch a thought on paper and therefore engrave it on the skin.

There are those who seem to have been really inspired when they made their works. And whatever the result of his inspiration, it seems to be contagious.

En esta sección de la web quiero compartir con todos vosotros cosas que me inspiran a mí. Lugares, libros, películas, músicas y lo que sea que pueda entusiasmaros en la búsqueda de ideas y soluciones para vuestros próximos tatuajes.
