I like tatts myself, and I have two.

The only advice I give about them to people who ask is

1. Get something that you're not going to grow out of. don't forget it's there for ever and ever.

2. Personally, I would only get one where I could cover it up if i wanted even wearing "summer2 clothes i.e. no forearms, no calves and , God forbid, no Beckham back of the neck stuff.

Live dangerously

But make sure you can cover them up when you want to

I have 2 myself so I like them. I think as long as a woman doesnt get a masculine one then its ok and also I quite like the fact that where I have mine, I can show them off if I want to or hide them when need be. There is nothing I find more minging than I lady in a nice dainty dress with a massive tattoo on show, it just doesnt look good in my opinion.
My friends seem to like mine but I dont think they'd get one themselves. I also plan to get another one when Im in Australia (like a constant memory)
Any news on the Tattoo Rach? You've got everyone intregued now.

I got a tattoo, and 6 months later I had it removed. It wasn't pleasant. Just be absolutley sure that it is something you won't mind looking at for the rest of your life;)
My darling 1st cousin has a small multi-colored lizard just below her navel. It was beautiful, tiny,adorable....that is until she got pregnant...then it just looked like a deformed alligator! I don't mean to sound so negitive..it is just SO permanent!
Maybe try a henna tattoo first? It will last for quite a while, and then maybe you will be sure about taking the plunge. Good luck with whatever you decide!

Tattoos are kind of like fashion. What's "in" changes from season to season, like belly-button rings or those great, big hoops that people wear that enlare the lobe of your ear. I think you have to really, really want that tattoo - and then wait 6 months or so to get it done, just to make sure you don't change your mind.

Then again, I'm petrified of getting a tattoo (I saw a program about people who lived with constant allergic reactions to the ink....!!!), so I may be neither here nor there.

I have been thinking about getting a tattoo somewhere for quite sometime, but I want someone who can draw extremely well detailedly but not harshly to draw me a tattoo. I know that I certainly don't want a fad tattoo, simply because it will be on my body forever. On the contrary, I don't want something cliche like a bug or a dragon or a nude. (I think that veins are kind of cool, but that would mean that I would need a DNR, depending on if it is on my back or stomach or theigh or something) Also, I want it in a not-too-obvious spot so I will still get a job, but not where almost no one will even see it at all. Tattoos are art, so I think that it is a good idea to put a lot of thought into them.:)
