I saw a post the other day reminding people to tip their tattoo artist. Most of the people in the comments didn’t even know that that was a thing. I’ll admit that I didn’t know it. That conversation reminded me that I still want a tattoo.
I have a few questions only for those of you who have tattoos.
- Where on your body did you get it?
- Did you know what you were getting or did you decide when you got there?
- How bad did it hurt?
- Is it hard to take care of at first?
- Can it be easily infected?
- Did it stop you from getting a new job?
- What did your family think about it?
- How much did yours cost?
- Do you ever regret getting one?
I’m so torn on this. One lady said that she paid $3000 for her tattoo of a rose just because some famous artist did it. Is that normal? She was covered in them so I can’t even imagine how much all of her tattoos cost.
If I ever get the nerve, I want one on the back of my neck, my shoulder, or my wrist. It’s going to have to be small. Like, super small. I always joked that I would get a dot and say it’s a tat of the earth.
What about one of my own name? Or my initial? Is that considered tacky? I love calligraphy writings.
Or what about my zodiac symbol? I’m a Virgo.
This is why I haven’t gotten a tattoo yet. I can’t decide what I want on my body for the rest of my life.
By the way, this is the one that got me considering getting a tattoo in the first place.
I freaking love this. It seems simple enough, but it looks like it would have to be bigger than I’m comfortable with.
Do you see what I mean? I can’t make up my freaking mind. Everyone I’ve managed to talk to absolutely loves their tattoos. Yes tattoos. As in more than one. They were able to choose multiple tattoos and I can’t decide on one.
So what made you decide to get a tattoo? Let me know about your experience. Should I or shouldn’t I?
One thing I do know if I decide to get one, is I will tip my artist. Did you tip your artist? It’s kind of insulting if you don’t.
