    Yep, agreed, I have factored that in when picking my tattoos. There is alot in life that will give us cause for regret, doesn't mean we don't take that risk anyway.

    I have two tattoos, on my ankles, and they do mean something to me. I knew what I wanted at the age of fifteen, kept thinking on it for a few years, and once I was legal and financially sound I got them done.

    I got them revised a year later (original artist was good, but I wanted a bit of alteration) and one of them got infected. Painful. I am going to have a very specific female artist do it if at all possible, because she's amazing and does beautiful work.

    Touch-ups don't bother me, as they are not large - but I personally don't like the idea of hurried choices, and a general rule is if ye know what ye want... wait six months. If ye still want the same thing, wait another six, and then get it done. Unless it is for a specific locale (i.e., to commemorate a trip to Bali or somesuch whilst there) or event-specific, there shouldn't be a rush.

    yeah, i agree with both your posts, MDP.
    i think it is a lot harder but more meaningful to come to terms and accept the things about yourself that you regret, rather than just always pre-emptively censoring yourself or constantly erring on the side of safety. when you have to learn to accept this tatto you regret, it introduces some humillity into you, i think.

    haha. yeah, Maya really disliked my tattoos when i first met her.
    but she warmed up to them, or she loves me enough to put up with them at least.
    haha, no, actually when we are watching a movie or just relaxing together she will absent-mindedly start tracing my tattoos with her finger.

    I don't like bodies totally covered in tattoos because then they are never really naked (particularly with sleeves & that sort of thing). There's always something decorating them. I also don't like any piercings that cannot be removed much or they'll close for the same reason. There are times when I want to be washed of everything that is not naturally me, and I would prefer that in a partner also. There's a purity in that which is more erotic than body art.

    However, I've seen tattoos look nice on some people, and some tattoo artists really are artists and create beautiful illustrations. There's a lot of tacky, trendy shit out there also though.

    It's unusual to see a very elegant person with a visible tattoo (though not impossible). It automatically gives you a bit of a hard, rough look, but I think that's what people are going for.

    I enjoy henna ink tattoos, I don't usually illustrate myself with the traditional designs that are associates with henna though. They're absolutely gorgeous (imo) but they don't suit me at all and I'm not looking to take from a culture I'm not part of.

    I know it's not a real form of tattooing but they can be useful if you want to test run a design that doesn't have a lot of color.

    This is the other reason I don't care for tattoos much. I like the way the human body looks unadorned.

    No, I don't have any. I've thought about it, but, I don't know. I would have to find one that I could be satisfied with forever, because that's how long it's gonna be there. Because of this, I have reasoned that I could never find one that I would love for the rest of my life. So, that's why I don't have any.

    If I ever decided to get one, it would probably be small and some place where it could be seen regularly with clothing (but just as easily covered up), not provocative, and simple but elegant. Maybe if I get really attached to my logo (a spyglass with the lens as an eye and a smoke tendril wrapping around the object), I'll use that since I designed it and it's all over my business stuff.

    I have one tattoo of the infinity symbol on my left wrist, I got it done when I was 19, I've been obsessed with the concept of infinity since I was in 5th grade.

    I love my tattoo and have never once regretted it.

    I have several self-inflicted burns on my forearm that I've grown to accept.

    They are far more obvious and seen than my tattoo.

    There are six of them that are shaped like a seven, that happened by chance.

    I would like to get a circle/zero on my other wrist, don't think I'll do it, though.
