I Want a Tattoo

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,874 People

    It's hard because those around me judge me

    for wanting to permanently mark my body. My life revolves around church because my parents are so involved and many Christians believe it's a sin. My father has tattoos but my mother doesn't really agree with them. I wouldn't get anything huge like a sleeve. I just want a couple...

    I want a dragon on the back of my right

    shoulder, with a slim, spiraling tribal designs trailing down to my waist... And then on my left side, the same type of design tracing across my ribs, to my side, down to my waist, to meet with a scrolling, flowery hip piece... I've been in love with these ideas for a long time...

    I've had so many tattoo ideas

    and still do. But the first one I actually had made, was surprising and happened fast. It's a tribute for the two cats I don't have anymore. They were named after electrical components, so now I have a picture of an electrical circuit including those components and a heart as an...

    I want the tattoos that are on my cover image

    but my problem is I want them reversed so when I have my hand facing me it's not upside down most people do it the other way around so other people see it but I'm not getting my tattoos for other people to see, so my question is which way are you really supposed to get it done...

    Hummingbirds And Butterflies Possibly

    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...

    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.

    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

    So I need a second opinion about a tattoo

    design. It sounds like a good idea and a drew it out and it looks good to me but I want to know an honest opinion from someone so I don't make the mistake of getting it then regretting it. So the design is of the earth (pretty small about the size of my palm) and a musical note...
