If this is your first tattoo get it on your shoulder it's easier to cover for work and in the summer you can show it off if you wear tank tops. AVOID names in tats most people regret doing that and often seek cover-ups. Have a drawing of exactly what you want and take it with you that way there are no surprises later when it can't be undone. I have a tat both places and shoulder and upper arm, I get a lot of comments about the one on my arm none negative but it was well chosen and reflects my personality. The one on my back I don't see and didn't take a drawing with me one of the words were misspelled. Hope that helps.
