    I have two tattoos – one on my inner ankle and one on my hip. They are both small and are easily covered. I think that one of the best decisions I ever made in regard to my tattoo’s were that I made sure to get small, discrete tattoo’s that I wouldn’t regret later.

    Personally, I don’t like tattoo’s on the wrist. I find them to be more of a fad right now. Think long and hard about being 30, 40, 50….80 with a tattoo on your wrist.

    I used to have a neighbor who had a tattoo on her face. She was in her 70’s. How much do you want to bet that she regrets the hell out of it?

    I would say go for it in regard to the tattoo but maybe reconsider the location. I’m sure people will disagree with me but think about the future, too!

    I vote no because I have some mistake tattoo’s that I am in the process of removing and it IS AWFUL!!!  Does this tattoo have any meaning to you? Why a pink feather?As you have described it, it seems to have high potential to regret later in life. Also, since it is on your wrist it could affect your career?!

    @angieviolin:  I think it is very wise to research if it would affect your career. Although, usually this affects more business jobs than an instrumentalist. But, I am not in that field so I dont know. But, if you said you were in administrative or business work I would def NOT recommend this. If you do your research and really, really think about it and still want to, no doubts, then I say do it. however, I dont recommend before your wedding ๐Ÿ˜€ Good luck dear!

    Sounds cute! Go for it! But remember that you are supposed to keep your tats out of the sun for a while after getting freshly inked. Are you going on a honeymoon where you will be out in the sun, on the beach or in the ocean? If so, I would wait.

    All of my tats I have gotten done in the winter for that reason.

    Meh, I have one on my wrist and I’m an accountant, for all those saying it can ruin your career. No one has ever said anything and it’s easily covered by a watch if need be. It took my boss three years before he noticed I even had it. It’s a very personal decision, I waited two years before getting it after I first decided I wanted it to make damn sure it was what I wanted.

    @angieviolin:  I would say wait. If you are asking us if you are ready for a tattoo, then you probably are not ready. And if you haven’t researched how it will affect your career, then you should most definetly hold off.

    If you want it; get it.

    I dont see why anyone elses opinion should matter. They arent the one wearing it for the rest of their lives.

    Maybe I’m wrong, but if you have to ask it sounds like you’re not 100% sure…I’d wait a bit if I was you. If you still want it in 6 months or a year, then go for it.

    @angieviolin:  I really like the significance of the tattoo for you. As soon as you explained it would be a feather and the violin reference, I totally got the keeping the fingers “light as a feather” idea even before you typed it. Very cool!

    A friend of mine is a fellow stage actor who has a huge dark blue, purple and black tattoo on his outer arm. He had to cover it for a show. It was possible, and we found a way to do it well, so I imagine that if you got a light pink feather on your wrist and had to cover it for a performance or audition, you could do it with foundation makeup or just wear a long-sleeve shirt or bracelet that would cover it. Just a few thoughts. I hope this helps you reach your decision.

    Honestly, I would not get a tattoo that I would have to cover up with extra clothes. You don’t know what your employment options will be in the future, and it would suck to have to wear long sleeve shirts every day to cover that.

    Aside from that… I’m not opposed to tattoos, I’ve just never encountered a design that I want on my body for ever and ever and ever. If you’re not sure, definitely table the idea for a little while.

    I say do it, if you’re sure it’s what you want. I have a tattoo on the inside of my wrist and nobody EVER notices it. I have had people say something about it a year or more after knowing me, asking if it’s new. I don’t even bother wearing watches to interviews because even though it seems like an obvious place, it is so discreet and small. Your sounds like it would be even less noticable if it is tiny and pink.
