I dont I love it and am getting another one ๐Ÿ™‚ I think as long as you put thought into what your getting and think about it not just rush into getting it you shouldnt regret it…

Don’t get a tattoo when you’re 15. That’s my advice ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thankfully I was smart enough to put it where it can be easily hidden. I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it either, I’ve just grown out of it if that makes sense. I have a second one I got when I was 20 that I still like. I’d like to get a third one but I’m a bit nervous about it.

I got my blue rose when I was 18. I still love it. It needs to be touched up, but I don’t regret it at all.I plan on getting more some day when we have the spare funds.

I do however regret the one my ex got that has my name in a heart on it. As far as I know he is on his 2nd marriage and never got it covered up.

@MissOtter31: What’s the phrase and where are you thinking of getting it? Personally, I like having my tattoos somewhere that I can decide if I want to show them or not. I wouldn’t want “crazy pants” or something written on the back of my neck when I was 65 ๐Ÿ˜‰  I found I wanted another tattoo within a year of my first, so if you can kind of hold off and be patient, you should be able to keep yourself under control. My second one was 10 years ago and I’ve just been debating getting a third in the last year or two.

I have 4 and I don’t regret any of them. I got my first on my 18th birthday. Yes, tattoos are addictive! The ones I have are all deeply meaningful, I have to keep reminding myself I shouldn’t get one just to get one the way my friends do. Those are the ones you usually end up regretting.

I have five tattoos (getting my sixth this week!), and I do have slight regret about one of them.

What you said about knowing you want the phrase now, but might not want it when you’re 65? That’s my problem. Really think about that. I love the font; I love the look of the tattoo. It’s perfect and exactly what I wanted at the time. But I’m uncomfortable with the idea of having the phrase on my body for the rest of my life.

the best advice I can offer is this:

Do not get a tattoo if you have doubts. Do not get it until you are as sure as you can be that you will be comfortable having it as a part of you for the rest of your life, seeing it every day, and explaining it to people if they ask about it. Decide where on your body you want the tattoo, far in advance of getting it done, and really start picturing it there.

For me, the point at which I know I’m ready for a new tattoo is when I can no longer picture a part of my body without it, when I feel like something is missing from my person without the tattoo. I don’t know if other people have that feeling, but I do.

@MissOtter31: I’m a HP buff too ๐Ÿ™‚ Sounds like it’s meaningful to you which is the most important thing! When you’re thinking of location though, try to think of if you were going to a work function for you or Darling Husband down the road and you had to wear an evening dress, would you be able to see it? A bathing suit when you’re 60? That’s what I always think about. It’s easy enough to cover up something there in day to day life, but would you be self conscious of it in other occasions if you couldn’t cover it up or would it be distracting? Or would you mind if other people saw it? Some people wear their ink with pride (and rightly so, I’ve seen some amazing tattoos!) and would specifically pick a bathing suit or dress to show it off. It just depends on the type of person you are!

I love my two tat’s and am glad I have them. Though the one on my back/upper shoulders really does need to be touched up.

Also is it somewhere you would be able to see with your wedding dress? and are you ok with that?

I do.  But not that much.  The upside of the dated “tramp stamp” location is that I never see it and mostly forget its there.  My mentality at the time was that I would only have to live with it publicly as long as I was willing to wear a bikini…which was true.  If it was on my arm, I’d have gotten it lasered off long ago.
