Short word tattoo ideas? (Please read)

when I'm legal, I want to get a short word or phrase tattoo at the top of my neck or behind my ear. What are some 2-3 + word quotes that arent cliches or common tattoos. thanks so much

A tattoo is for life.... so you probably need to think again about PLACEMENT. Anywhere on your head is a really bad idea.
The phrase you want needs to be YOUR idea. You cant just erase it if you dont like it. A $40 tattoo takes minimum $1500 to have removed.

I just want it behind my ear or top of my neck so my hair can easily cover it. Or on my ribs

Just keep in mind that hairstyles change... ANYWHERE that can be hidden is great. Esp if you want to go to college and end up with a career. A lot of professional jobs dont particular like seeing visible tattoos. It is usually thought of as poor decision making skills. I have a couple of tattoos and have heard those remarks.

this tattoo idea sounds cliche to me, good luck finding phrases that aren't

Rule #1: Don't get ANY tattoo of anything in a language that you personally don't speak and read fluently.
You might think you're getting the Chinese symbol for "Powerful Woman" but really you'll end up with the Chinese symbol for "Donkey Ketchup".

Get a tattoo thats covered by a shirt first. Are you sure that your line of work in the future will find a neck tatt acceptable? I waited till my 30s to get my first tatt just to make sure its what I really wanted and so I wouldnt put anything dumb on myself that I would want removed in the future. Think about it...

Ohhh didnt see u were female... Neck tatts are not really attractive for females, kind of masculine.

If you have to ask what you should get tatted, don't get a tattoo. Only get one if something has real meaning to you not something some random person suggested.

get "Puma" because i'm sure not many people have that
because Pumas are animals of both fear and respect

Glad you asked the question. How long before you'll be legal? Honestly, I haven't seen a tat on a woman's neck that I thought was attractive. If you want a tat, I'd suggest you put it somewhere that won't limit your future job opportunities.

if you have to ask other people, i suggest you opt out of getting a tattoo. Wait till it means something to you.

Dont get a real tattoo, cause one day, you might regret it. You should get a tattoo that lasts like, a few months. And you should get a temporary tattoo that says something that really means to you.

How about "I'm just a stupid kid who got this tattoo at 18"? Because that's what it'll say when you're 40.

I am currently trying to figure out the same thing.... I have recently decided that I want a tattoo on my inner wrist but not 100% sure where I want it. I do agree with the people that are saying to get something that truly means something to you. I know a ton of people who got random tattoos at 18-19 and now regret getting them. I currently have 4, the shoulder blades are probably a good place to start because it is probably one of the least painful places to get it, as well as it is easily covered if necessary.
