    I typically lean towards black/grey tattoos, but I really like that one in color.

    Hmmm I’d say black/grey…. and get it much smaller. I don’t know, I don’t think tattoos improve your looks… wear an anchor on a charm bracelet instead. Sorry.

    I hear that the colors can fade over time and make the tatoo look dull.  I love the first anchor! Simple and clean!

    I love the color one– but just a heads up– if you ever plan to have kids, this is a rough spot for a tattoo because it’ll likely stretch. I’m 1/2 way through a back piece that will wrap around onto my rib cage, and I’m having to postpone those sections until we are done having kids in order to keep it intact.

    @canarydiamond:  Maybe she thinks that charm bracelets don’t improve her looks.  I think they don’t.

    I like the color one. You can always get the color touched up!

    I’m such a sucker for a really well done black and white tattoo. If you find the right artist, it could look really great!

    @canarydiamond:  Not everyone gets tattoos to improve their looks.

    I’m a sucker for vibrant colored old school tattoos. If you can find someone who does good color work, it will look amazing!

    I love that one in colour (: I actually have that picture saved on my laptop. I think they both look great, but I prefer the vibrant colours a bit more.

    Depends on your skin tone. If you have paler skin I think the color would stand out nice and is always worth getting touched up. I also love black and grey which tends to work better for darker or tanner skin. I’m right in the middle and chose to go with color for my backpeice, and the color has held up well for years. Go with your gut!

    If color is done well it looks great, but otherwise it is better to go with b/w.
