    They fade fast. The ink goes pretty swiftly to blue and the edges blur. I’m not a fan of them because they’re just in a very bad place for tattoos.

    @MrsMK:  I do not recommend any tattoos on the hand. I have plenty of tattoos and a lot of my social circle is heavily tattooed. It’s not a good place for them and the ink fades and blurs quickly and it ends up just looking like a smudge. I really would rethink this plan. It might look great for a year or two and then you’re stuck with it when it doesn’t look so great anymore.

    Agree w PP. Also I cant see the first pic. I really wanted one on my ring finger as well, but all the pictures of finger tattoos, no matter how well done theybwere, end up looking blurry. Like it was done with a sharpie basically. But I’m also stubborn so who knows lol.

    I’m just not a fan of tattoos at all. I just don’t like them, and I think they look bad after a while and especially when you age. So you can guess my vote!

    I can’t see the picture :/ 

    I have tattoos and love them – but I don’t think I could personally get a finger tattoo. I know someone that has them and they look horrible (but her other tattoos are horribly done as well, so it could just be the inexperience of the “artist.”) 

    Ink on the hands and feet does fade quickly and can go from looking like a neat trebble clef (I’m guessing that’s what you put up, you said music teacher) to a blurry blob. Ok that’s probably an exaggeration, but I would put the tattoo somewhere else. OR maybe get a foot tattoo and see how long it lasts. OR on your 5th year anniversary, 10th anniversary, somewhere a LONG time down the line get it tattooed. My same friend with the finger tattoo on her ring finger has to wear a wedding band at all times now to cover her ex’s initials and she’s not married. It looks really trashy, IMO.

    Yeah, I’d also worry about colours and blurring outlines.  But I’m biased, because I generally advise against tattoos.

    I cant see the picture either but like PP said..everyone I know with a tattoo on their finger is now stuck with something blurry. some of the tattoos can still be made out, depending on the initial quality and how intricate it was (less intricate the better) BUT they are still blurred. 

    the constant friction just doesnt work out…but if you want to do it, then by all means.

    I have two tattoos on my rib cage that both involve my significant other (not his name or initials though just symbols) and I love them ! I personally wouldnt tattoo anything resembling a persons name, but go for it if you want. I hope it turns out great ! I also like the “marriage” of the two ideas.. Is the tattoo a music note (cant see pic)?

    ETA: personally I would choose a different location, but ultimately its up to you.

    @MrsMK:  I can see it now. And while the design is beautiful, I promise it won’t look like much in a few years. I think your idea is great, you just need to find somewhere else to put it.

    @MrsMK:  I love the design, and I actually have friends with this same design (in other locations though).

    I agree with PPs that it’s just not a good location.  I have friends with tattoos on their hands and it fades and blurs really quickly.  The issue is that tattoo ink should go in between the two layers of your skin in order to hold properly, and your hands are much more difficult to do it right.

    If you’re totally set on this, just be prepared to be going in for touch ups every year or two.  I would be worried that the scar tissue this would cause after a few touchups would make your finger large enough that your rings would need resized.

    The design itself is really pretty. But I’m not a fan of finger tattoos, they usually look bad after a few years. And I know styles are not to discuss, but as you age it might not look elegant either. That’s more what bugs me. I have multiple piercings in locations people don’t know, and I like to admire tattoos on other people’s bodies. I appreciate the art, but sometimes it just doesn’t go with the type of person you become, and there are pieces that just won’t look refined as you age – IMO finger tattoos fall into that category.

    @MrsMK:  pretty much anywhere besides your hands, feet, and face is fine for staying power.
