I Want a Tattoo

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,779 People

    It has to be something meaningful,

    a tattoo is pointless if it means nothing. I feel if ever something really significant happens to me I will get something small and meaningful that's appropriate to the situation. Kind of like a prison tattoo... Only not for the same reasons (I hope)

    I've been wanting to get a few tattoos.

    they are really expensive though and every time i get near the two to three hundred dollars something comes up that eats my tattoo money. I feel like this sounds like an excuse, maybe it is because the idea of getting all my tattoos and the amount of pain or what if they mess...

    I have been wanting some tattoo's

    for a long time, I just hate the time it takes to find a great artist. I finally found a outstanding artist who I would trust to tattoo me in diamond jacks. It just suck how booked they are, and the fact I may not be able to get it this year.

    I'm Going To Get It When I Can Afford It.

    I already have a few, but there's a few more that I want. One is a snake going up my spine. In a lot of Pagan traditions, snakes represent the goddess, rebirth, and ridding the old for the better new. Below is an example, pretty close to what I want.

    I want a cute and feminine one maybe on my

    shoulder, I dislike it when girls have too many tattoos on their bodies... just my opinion. The cute and small ones suit girls more :) Maybe someday I'll be able to save enough money to get one from a clean and good quality tattoo artist

    I grew up with the idea

    that your body is pure and you shouldn't mark it. Since I was raised christian tattoos were generally considered sort of taboo with my friends and family growing up. I'd rather not get something that stands for a person in particular but something I generally believe in. In my...

    I always wanted a tattoo.

    I would like it to be on the thigh because it has a lot of fat so it wouldn't hurt as much. My friend recently got a cool design on his ribs and he said it was painful XD

    When Lumpy died, Stinky came to me and told me that he wanted a tattoo. I was not in favor of it as he was underaged and I didn't want him marking up his body. Friends advised me that based on the kind of kid Stinky was and the love he had for his Dad, that I should change my...

    Best advice I can give: get the tattoo you want

    in Henna first. That way you'll have it for a solid two weeks so you know if you like the design, size and placement. This will help you make the final decision on if you want to actually get the tattoo or not.

    So, Ive been thinking about my tattoo design

    for a while but I can't seemed to settle on anything. I want it to have a lot of meaning to me. So i want it to do with music, nature/animals, and spirituality and I want to find a way to combine these things. Any ideas?

    Lately, I've been thinking about wanting to get

    a tattoo. Nothing huge. Maybe something like a rainbow or a butterfly or a star or the moon. Whatever I get, if I get it, I want the image to have a significant meaning. I also want it to be where I can see it but can easily cover it up if I need to.
