Im getting 2 tattoos tonight.
One on my wrist that says “I love you” in my moms handwriting…
and then another on my lower back. I cannot decide if i want daisies with swirl design (my favorite flower) or a lily with a swirl design. (which looks pretty)
Did you ladies go with what looked pretty or your favorite thing? Did it have meaning to you?

@peachbaby4008: Not trying to be rude here, but if you’re not sure what you want, maybe you should take some more time to decide before you have it permanently inked to your body. Laser removal is really painful and expensive.
I’d just get the mom’s handwriting tattoo and then get the other one when you’re sure what you want. Regrets suck!

@peachbaby4008: I would wait a little longer on the 2nd one if you’re not sure. But that’s just me. Maybe get them to do the outline with the stencil or markers to see which you like? anyways tattoos are forever so like I said, I would wait until you’re 100% sure about which one YOU want.

I love both those flowers but I wouldn’t get a swirl design. Everyone has those kind of tats. I would wait until you know for sure and then you can Come up with something unique to you.

i agree with PP. Get the one with your mom’s handwriting. Wait on the other one until you know for sure what you want. I waited 18 years to get my first tattoo because it took that long for me to be fully sure I wouldn’t regret it.
And I’m going to put it out there – tramp stamp. Not the best idea ever

Wait until you know what you want. Ink is seriouse business and should mean something.

I agree with PP’s. All too often we make a hastly decision because we think we want it, but later regret it.
I should know, I had a dragonfly on my wrist that I’m not too happy with, I got it touched up but it’s still not something I want there anymore.
If you aren’t sure what you want, wait it out and see if you still want that.
I’ve been thinking about a tattoo, in almost flesh colored pink [light pink], that says “just breathe”, it’s what fi tells me when I’m flipping out over little things [my job or what not]. It’s seriously the only thing that calms me down.
I’ve been waiting on the tattoo for 4 years now, to see if I still want it.

Don’t get anything permanently inked on yourself unless you are 100% sure you want it there.

I agree with the other posters who said to just get the one with your mother’s handwriting (beautiful idea by the way!), if you’re not 100% sure on the other one, wait it out and think about it more before committing yourself to being permanently inked.
I have two tattoos. The first one was one I got when I was 18 and I didn’t really think about it… I don’t regret getting it but I wish I had thought about it more. I just went with what was trendy. My second one took me 4 years to really decide on what I wanted and I absolutely love it! I’ve had it for almost 5 years now.

If you’re having questions .. i’d wait. I have a tattoo, and I’m glad I waited for two years to get it. I went back and forth and back and forth and all over the map on what I wanted. I love your mom’s handwriting one. I would just caution, because I don’t know what kind of job you have/will have about putting it on your wrist. You should get something that means something to you. A friend of my older c ousins, who has tats and now has a grandkid said ” Seriously think about explaining that tattoo in the future to kids”
As it is my tat is on my upper thigh and my niece, when she was little, did that mom thing where she licked her hand and tried to wipe it off. She really rubbed hard and was like … oh no this isn’t coming off … you used perminate marker and now you won’t be able to wear a bathing suit to the beach. lol… just something to think about

@givemecouture: Agreed, except that I have nine tattoos, six of which I could do without (although some of those issues are due to quality and not what they are).

I agree with the other PP’s. Wait on that 2nd one. I have one tattoo that I spent 4-5 years thinking about before I got it. I still love it, even if Fiance, who I met after I got it, isn’t the biggest fan of it.
It’s two hearts, one representing my grandfather and the other representing my Great Grandma. Both who had large impacts on my life and passed away far too soon.

You guys are right. The daisies do mean something to me. My favorite flower, my first set of flowers for Dear Fiance, and my doggy Daisy Mae. Crazy daisies to be exact (the bright neon colored ones) maybe i should wait on that one.
As for the one for my wrist do you ladies think i will regret that one??
