I Am Thinking About Getting a Tattoo

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 204 People

    I have scars I want to cover up

    I have an appointment tomorrow night to get the

    gospel tattoo on my hip. It's my first tattoo so does anyone have any advice? P.S: I'm 19 so I don't need my parents signature but I have to get it on my hip bc they can't find out so don't try to talk me out of getting it there.

    Memorial Tattoo

    I don't have any tattoo's or piercings for that matter.  I've always been deadset against it.  Not that I don't see the artistic value of them;  it's just not something I've ever wanted. In December, one of my dogs passed away.  I casually mentioned to my...

    Tattoo

    I' m thinking about getting the sign of the Goddess across my shoulders, the sign of the God on my lower back, a chain of stars under my collar bone, the latin saying "Homo Fugue" on my right shoulder, and a small pentacle on my left. Also: A USB Port, and audio port, and a...

    Maybe

    I dunno I am thinking about it. Nothing is written in stone for me yet. Depends where I am in life and where my body is at.

    Tattoos on guys - what do you think?

    For a long time I couldn't come up with any sort of imagery or message that felt right enough to put on my body in such a permanent way - what if I feel differently about things a year from now, or 10 years from now, and I end up with something I don't believe in stuck on my...

    Ironically, I have been passionate about not

    getting a tattoo because it's so permanent and I change my mind so often that I don't think a tattoo is a genius idea for me. But lately, I've been wanting one. I'm the type of person that if there's no logical explanation in doing something, I won't do it. I won't get a tattoo...

    First of Many?

    I've had this in my head for a while now. On one shoulder, I want to get a large pink spider with 'hide' written underneath in fancy lettering.  I absolutely love the man's work (solo and with X-Japan) and would like to do something with/for him even though he was long...
