I'm going to get a tattoo. My first one, that is. Beforehand, I have a few questions though.
Like, is it really going to put a damper on a career, or interviews, or people's perceptions of me in general? I have almost absolutely no opinion of tattoos other than that they're a choice in life, and if you have one, cool for you.
Should I trust a headshop to get my tattoo? I generally know the people who work there, and they have a pretty thick book of photos of tattoos they've done, so it looks like they have their shit together.
I plan on having it go about 6 inches in runes (about 8 letters) down my inner forearm, and the woman who does the tattoos "appraised" it for "about 80 bucks". Is that a fair price?
Oh, and if anyone who posts here knows much about Tolkien languages, please make your presence known, I'll PM you what I plan on getting, because I'm not entirely sure it's 100% accurate.
I'd say inner upper arm= bicep to be safe. Inner forearm is that place where lots of people get tattoos and shouldn't, because you don't always want to wear long sleeve shirts to work. If you plan on always having dressy/desk jobs, I guess it's fine, but contingency plans are where "it's at" so to speak. What is the tattoo supposed to mean? What color/colors?

if it can be hidden then ok ..employers and the public see a tat and ..go right to thinking....druggy drunk loser as almost a reflex....a woman with ink is almost always seen as a slut..especially if its a tramp stamp..hence the name...its so common nowadays that even dr's and phd's are inked..be wary of cheap prices..its not a used car...you get what ya pay for..an autoclave is a must....photos of work they did are good but what about the end result?..ask around..be educated dont be impulsive..im 39 and only regret 1 of a initial and celtic knot on my ring finger...not good idea.
above the collar or below wrists is not a good idea most artists wont go there..
dont be afraid to have the artist change his design or alter things ..its on you..and not erasable
theres a fine line between genius and insanity
an ex told me i snorted that line long ago
