    It certainly IS an option, no?

    @ GAMRican: well he certainly knows how to express himself ^_^

    Depending on what kind of job you have, I myself would be wary of where you get a tattoo. I have a friend who has several tattoos on his arms and chest. He is obliged to wear long sleeve shirts to work everyday to maintain his professional etiquette since he's an engineer. If your employer is okay with you having a visible tattoo while at work then go for it icon_smile.gif

    Be careful of trendy tattoos. They may look good now, but not so good when thousands of others have the same tattoo. No offense to anyone who has one, but the wrist band tattoos (and forearm band tattoos) are starting to look trendy to me. I see them on quite a few people. When getting a tattoo, you have to think forward 10-20-30 years and think about how it will look or how you'll feel about it.

    For example, a tattoo on a flat, tight stomach may look great now, but now so great when the person is 65.

    Another poster already cautioned you against easily visible tattoos and I would do the same. Shoulders are a good place to start in my opinion - visible in tank tops for when you want to show it off but covered by t-shirts, shirts, etc.

    Tattoos that are visible while wearing business clothes: career limiting move.
    Tattoos on the face: career ending move.

    1. I have. 6 tattoos, all of them located in places that are easily hidden by a short-sleeved work shirt. I work all over the country as a high-end engineer and while here in CA tattoos (tasteful) are accepted professionally,this is not the case in most areas of the world.
    In other words, please take the advice others have also left here regarding placement.

    2. Tattoos hurt. They hurt more in boney places and in areas with lots of nerve endings (like side & stomach). Don't worry about it; you'll get over it.

    3. For the design, please avoid choosing it out of a binder at the tattoo parlor. You are permanently marking your body, so make sure the design has significance and relevance to your life.
    I recommend sketching out ideas that you like. It doesn't matter if you can draw; you will undetstand what the scribbles mean. Take these to a REPUTABLE ( != cheap) artist and they can help mold your concept into the right body art.
    When they screen-tranfer the design to your skin, but before they break the needle out, go look in the mirror. It it exactly what you want? Proceed. If t, there it nothing wrong with redesigning or even waiting for another time. A good artist will encourage this.

    Dont get them! Especially where you have to look at them all the time. I am so sorry I got some of mine. I was young. They fade and look like shit over time. I had two of them removed, you talk about pain!!! If you are going to get tatt's put them in places where your shirt or other piece's of clothing will cover them. Trust me on this... good luck.

    heres my opinion, from someone who is inked...youre 22, right? Dont get a tattoo you can't cover up for work or anything professional. Having one on your wrist makes it easier for the stuffed shirts to judge you. I know, "F--- Establishment", "Screw the Man!"...but at the end of the day, its the man and the establishment that pay your rent, so dont go pissing them off already. Wait until your established and an exposed tattoo doesn't hinder you moving forward professionally. Then you can stick it to the man.

    I agree with tanker but not as harsh as he is...LOL .. But when all the lights, go out and the music stops playing, curtains are drawn.... It will be you alone wit your tattoos... get wat feels right and you will look in the mirror and say:

    " Se'lf?"... Self will answer " Yes".... " Am I pretty?"( in your lil girl voice)....

    Self will say" MAn the fukk up bitch!!! I told you that yesterday!!

    The bands are trendy and what not....


    But I also heard it through the grapevine that some people get them to signify how far they have fisted other people... lol. Ie, how far they've shoved their arm up someone's ass.

    ...Just sayin'.

    Personally, If I have to sit through another boring, stupid-ass tattoo story (I got a unicorn because my Grandmother died six years ago...and she wants you to have a unicorn on your chest? What a b!) I will seriously consider poking the person in the face with my shoe.
    The trendy thing is to come up with some deep (to yourself) meaning for your ink...personally, I think you'll like it more if you respect the artwork. Get a design you like, have it personalized by your artist and go from there. My gryphon is completely spur of the moment because I paid for the session and didn't wanna waste the money (original design I wanted didn't fit), and now it's my favorite.

    honestly, why do you need our opinion? at the end of the day it is your decision. the only advice i will give you is to make sure you get something you really want. also think about what type of job you may want in the future. if it is in corporate or you want to be lawyer those tattoos can't be visible so placement of your tattoos is very important. anyhow good luck with your decision and let me see what you end up getting. i have two and will be getting two more this weekend

    get it if you want it, but be prepared to be 'judged' by every person and potential employer in the future when you extend your wrist for a handshake.... maybe you should leave a beautiful body alone? or get it on the non-dominant wrist.

    Think hard before getting a tattoo. I wanted one a couple years ago and actually had an artist draw one for me, but I thought about it and changed my mind. I'm very glad I didn't get it, I'm happy with my clean body these days and don't want something permanently on there. I have nothing against tattoos, just not for me. Think extra hard when considering one that will be so visible and what problems it may bring in the future. A lot of places still don't hire people with visible tattoos, and if they do they may require you to find a way to cover it.

    My lesbian friend wants to get a tat on her fore arm near her elbo with a line that says "Practically perfect in every way." Because the woman who can take that much of my friends arm up her cutch is "practically perfect in every way" for her. HAHAHAH

    NOOOO!! Don't do it! Tattoos are gross and very unprofessional!

    I've said it before and I'll say it again (and again,) If you do get a tattoo (major turn-off) then get one that is not visible while in work attire.
