Ladybug Legends
There are many stories around the globe about the ladybug and how she brings good weather, health, luck, and certainly fortune. One of the best legends of the ladybug occurred in Europe during the middle ages during one of the worst insect infestations and plagues of all times. The insects were destroying all the crops; and the people were starving. They began to pray to the Virgin Mary for help, and their prayers were answered in the form of large numbers of lady bugs who descended on these destructive insects and killing them; the crops then began to grow and flourish. These wonderful ladybugs became known as the "Beetles of Our Lady", which evolved into "Lady Beetles" and later shortened into "Ladybugs".

Another legend tells that if a lady bug landed on someone who was ill, the ladybug would take away the illness and the person would become well again. And as a prognosticator, if a ladybug lands on a new bride, the number of spots on the ladybug's back indicates the number of children the new bride would bear.

Designing and Placement of the Ladybug
One of the reasons that ladybug designs are so popular in tattoo design contests is that they can be designed with a wide variety of flowers and frills. The tattoo designers can help determine the best location on the body to place the pretty little lady. In addition, placement of the ladybug also tells something about the person getting the tattoo. The ladybug placed on the chest - because it's close to the heart - symbolizes the person's devotion and love.
Putting the ladybug on the neck indicates a person who is willing to take risks in life. (Generally, many employers are unwilling to hire employees with visible tattoos.) These people tend to make bold decisions, but having a tattoo on the neck is also one of the most painful places for a tattoo.
When the ladybug tattoo is placed on the back, it's well hidden (during normal business hours and staff meetings), but it tells of the mystery of the person. Tattoos on the fingers and feet are also very common, but difficult to hide on the hand. Get a lovely little ladybug tattooed on the hand and see how many people try to pick her off the hand during the day.

Ladybug Ladybug What do You Say

The best way to protect the tattoo

The same could be said for a tattooist. Choosing the wrong tattooist can have connotations for your health, so you should put a lot of effort to find the best tattoo and have it be someone that you can trust.
Word of Mouth
The first thing that you should do is ask your friends where they got their tattoo done. Tattoos are very popular in this day and age, so you are bound to know someone with a tattoo. Ask them about their experience and see if the artist was nice to them.
Please keep an open mind when you are asking for your friend's advice. If they indicate that the artist was rude to them, then you have to think about how your friend spoke to the artist, or see if there was another reason that the artist could have for treating the friend badly. You should only make a decision on an artist based on corroborating evidence. So, if you have a few friends that have all had a bad experience with the artist, then you should move onto another artist.
You should also ask if there was any advice given about how to care for the tattoo. All the best tattoo parlors will have details about what they think is the best way to protect the tattoo.
If you have heard good things about an artist or their shop, then should visit the shop and see how clean it is. Keep in mind that having a tattoo is breaking your skin, so you are susceptible to infections.
The best tattoo shops should be as clean as some doctor's offices. They should have cleaners and you should see artists clean their stations between customers.
Some tattoo parlors look vey high class. They have art on their walls and the rooms have tables and chairs. If you think a tattoo parlor looks dirty then you should have your tattoo done there. You have to think of your health as well as the beautiful artwork on your body.
If you have found a parlor that you like but you are still not 100% sure then you should turn to online reviews to see if the parlor is somewhere that you would like to make an appointment. Again, you should look for information about:
  • Customer Service
  • Cleanliness
  • Quality of Design
  • Manner of Staff
  • Availability of appointments
Cancellations are a bit complicated because if you have an artist that cancels an appointment then it is an inconvenience to the customer. However, there are good reasons for a cancellation and you shouldn't hold the issue against the artist if they have a very good reason.
If they have cancelled because they were out the night before, then you will have an issue, but professional artists that work in professional parlors will not do something like that.
Finding the right tattoo parlor is very important because you will look at that tattoo on your body and you will always remember the circumstances surrounding the tattoo. It would be such a shame if you remember getting an infection or a rude artist. So, you have to make sure that you don't remember these things. The only way to do that is to make sure that you pick the right tattoo parlor and artist.
