I regret both of mine.   There are very few things I love now that I thought were cool when I was in my 20s.  They aren’t awful, but I wouldn’t be sad if they washed off in the shower tomorrow morning.

@MissOtter31: go into tattoo shops and look at portfolios.  Good artists will be good at the type of tattoo you want- like if you want a portrait make sure they have a good portfolio of portraits, not roses.  Word of mouth is probably the most common way of tattoo advertising.  I have the artist who did my backpieces name on my speed dial because people ask me about who did it so often, I hope they all have nice tattoos now too =D

@MissOtter31: Thanks! I hope you make a descision that you’re happy with. It doesn’t really hurt that bad. It just felt like an annoying scratching feeling to me. Just make sure that whatever you go with… it’s something that is (and will always be) important to you.

I LOVE my tatto’s.  Don’t regret a single one.  The best advice I can give you is this: Choose/Draft/Draw/Design the one you want.  Look at it every day for 6 months.  If you still LOVE it after 6 months go for it.  If it doesn’t have that zing to it after that amount of time, rethink why you don’t like it as much.  Rinse, Repeat.

@MapleBecky: I feel the same way 🙂

I have 2 on my hip. They are always hidden but I do regret them. I got them when I was 21, I am now 30 and just don’t really care for them. I have a cross with a heart in the middle of it and a chinese symbol for strength…..or atleast thats what I think it means…lol. I like tats on other people usually, I think I just outgrew my own choices.

@MissOtter31: My sister and I are planning on having matching ‘Expecto Patronum’ tattoos done on the side of our left foot. We are both huge HP fans, and both love the idea of keeping dementors away with happy thoughts. With foot tattoos they can be easily covered, or flaunted. I don’t have any tattoos yet though, I’m not sure when, if ever, I’ll get my foot one, because Mr. Roux said if I got it done then he is getting a palm sized tattoo of Peter Griffin from Family Guy on his shoulder. Which I would hate. Apparently a small script tattoo on your foot is equivelent to giant cartoon tattos on shoulders. grrrr…

@kayakblondie: I think engraved on jewellery is a BRILLIANT idea, since it is a phrase the OP wants anyway.

I have a fair amount of tattoos but only 2 of them are big. Most of them are visable at all times and I could never stop loving them or regret them… they are a part of me a part of my life that happened and I have a picture to remember that. If I ever get tired of 1 I’ll just cover it up with something else but I doubt that’ll happen. You get pretty attached to them and it’s like seeing a beautiful work of art everyday that you get to bring along with you everywhere you go.
