Courage is not the only thing you need to get a tattoo. You need to know what you are going to give yourself. Remember a tattoo is a work of art that you carry on the canvas of your skin. So you need a general idea of what you are going to get and consult with a talented tattoo artist about it. You should browse a few catalogs from tattoo artists to get a good idea for designs and styles you like.
In my personal experience I have always loved tribal tattoos. And the best thing about tribal tattoos is that you can always manipulate the forms using the same basic concepts to create something completely original and unique; something that represents you as an individual. The tribal possibilities are endless. But not everyone is equal and some people don’t feel identified by tribal and that’s o.k. There are a lot of different tattoo styles you can get. From the most simplistic to the more complex, the only thing that matters is that you like your tattoo and that you feel a connection with the image you’re getting tattoo on. Here I putted some examples of tribal and other tattoos I think are awesome:
There is nothing sadder than a person with a tattoo that he or she doesn’t like. There are people that get tattoo on the heat of the moment without thinking it through and to tell you the truth sometimes the results are awful. There are a few tattoos you should never get. Some of this are: Tattoos with names of girlfriends or boyfriends. Let’s be honest how many times you had a girlfriend or boyfriend and you thought you were going to be with her or him for the rest of your life, but at the end the relationship ended and you started a new one; and now what are you going to do with the name of your Ex tattooed all over your chest or wherever. Tattoos that you do to create a funny moment or a joke should never be an option, because the joke may be funny at the moment but after a while the tattoo is no longer funny and you are the one that becomes the joke. Tattoos on certain places like the face, of course this is my personal opinion I don’t mean to offend no one that has a tattoo on the face it’s just that I believe the face carries the expressions of our feelings and we don’t need to add anything that covers or distorts those expressions.
Here are a few example of what you should never get:
Remember to take your tattoo seriously. Do some research on what you want, and again browse some tattoo catalogs and consult with a professional artist about your tattoos so you can make a good decision.
Hey! J. Charles here,
If you are thinking on getting your first tattoo or you are already decided but don’t know what you want to get as a tattoo, you discover the right place to get your answers.
This is based my personal experience and I hope it helps you!
Let’s start with those that are simply thinking on getting a tattoo but are still searching for reasons to do it. I have one thing to say to you: GO FOR IT! Leave all fears and all questions on whether you should or shouldn’t behind and GO GET THAT TATTOO!
Forget all those stereotypical concepts of tattoos and all those negative questions and ideas that pops into your head like:
What would my family think?
Your family will love you no matter what you have on your skin.
Should I get tattoo?
Yes you should! If you want a tattoo you should get one. It represents your true filings your true self. If that’s your desire you should make it happen.
Getting tattoo will affect my job opportunities.
There are a lot of places in the body you can get a tattoo that aren’t visible in the work space. Beside they don’t need to know you have a tattoo on your job and they won’t ask you on your job interview either.
What would people say?
Who cares what people say any ways? It’s your body, it’s your life!
Is it a good idea to get a tattoo?
Yes it is! People have been doing it for centuries long. It’s time to see how natural the desires of tattoos are.
What are the risks of getting a tattoo?
If you take care of your tattoo and you make sure to do it on a really professional and clean place there are no risk you should worry about.
Will it hurt badly?
Not really. It hurts, but it’s nothing you can’t handle. The truth is… the “pain” (if you can call it that) is not that big of a deal.
I spent years thinking: “I want to get a tattoo” but never actually doing it and to tell you the truth now that I have one;
the only thing I regret is not getting that tattoo earlier in my life!
