If you were old enough for a tattoo you wouldn't care what your mom thought.

she probably thought you would change your mind about the tattoo or she probably didnt like the place you got the tattoo at or what the tattoo design was but at least you like it its kinda to late to fix it now so yay! :)

Most mothers don't want their children getting tattoos. 1. Much of society is going to judge you negatively because of tattoos. You may say now that you don't care but the day will probably come when you DO care. 2. Tattoos are pretty much permanent; changing your mind involves expense and, I would imagine, pain.

that's a good point but she has took me to get my other 2 and this will be my 3 and she didn't act this way the other 2 times.

Well, then I don't know. Perhaps SHE has changed her mind about the wisdom of tattoos, or perhaps this third one upsets her as to its content or location. Have you asked her why this one upsets her when the other two didn't?

ya i have asked her but she wont tell me maybe because she knows i am growing up and leaving the house soon

Well, you tried. I hope you don't later regret your tattoos. If it makes any difference, I wouldn't really object to my sons having gotten tattoos, as though as I knew they had thought it through first.

I thought it was pretty accommodating of your mother to allow you to get the first two tattoos. Now you want more. Listen to your mother. Enough is enough. Time for some common sense to come into play.

Okay, here it is. Parents do not want their kids to permanently draw on themselves. They just don't. They know that most of the time the child will regret the decision at some point in life. What looks really exciting and cool now might be extremely lame and embarrassing later. Remember beanie babies and mullets? xD Also as you get older your body changes, ink fades and your skin loses its elasticity.

But parents want to give their children to make their own way in life and their own decisions. Some parents will do this even at the parell of their child marking themselves for life and possibly causing you to end up with something you'll deeply regret. When she said you could get it, this is what she was doing. When you made the "wrong" decision (in her eyes) she is disappointed in you and probably heart broken. I like tattoos. Just not on myself or my children!

she has took me to get my other 2 and there bigger and she is not hapy with this one but i don't know why and i am 17

She probably feels as if you're over doing it. I bet she wasn't happy with the first 2 either but was trying to be reasonable since it's your body. What is this tattoo of? It might give insight as to what is upsetting her to know what the tattoo is. Also, just my opinion, 17 is way too young to know what you're going to want permanently burned into your skin for the rest of your life.

burned? you've never been in a tattoo parole have you?
I agree tho, if you're not old enough to get inked on your own then you're too young to make a good decision as to what you want on your body permanently.

LoL, I didn't mean literary burned. "burned into the skin" is a phrase used sometime to dramatically express the situation of having something permanently put on your body, whether tattoo, scarification or whatever. Though perhaps etched would have been closer to the true. I have gone with lots of friends to hold their hands while they got tattoos. I've also watched a lot of tattoo shows/documentaries and studied about it as well. I understand that a tattoo is a group of needles which is dipped into ink and injected subcutaneously (right in or under the skin) at a fast pace. I've watched people get entire back pieces so I know there's not actual "burning" being done."

she may not like what you chose to get and regrets letting you get anything at all, maybe next time you get one get it somewhere you can hide. If she regrets her choice don't keep beating her over the head with it, don't keep bringing it up or asking for more.

TBH, I don't think lying, sneaking around and hiding is the right approach. Especially since her mother has been so fair and kind about letting her do this in the first place. Lying and hiding things from your parents might be the typical popular rebellious teenager thing to do, however it often leads to more trouble than it If anything, I'd suggest just waiting until she were old enough to not need her mom's permission to get one. Or better yet, wait 5 years and really think long and hard about the pieces you want, you might find that you change so much in those years you may not even like what you originally had planned or you might be able to come up with something brilliant by waiting, thinking and working on it for so long. There's all kinds of things I'd have gotten at 17 that now at 28, I'd -hate-. I had a friend who got the 6 ICP joker cards on his back, a full back tattoo. Him and all his friends were really into ICP then. I bet he regrets it every day of his life. I agree though, might be best to just let the subject drop now. What's done is done. Just leave her alone about it an let her get over it is probably best. And don't ask for anymore. You can wait less than a year, when you'll be old enough to get one on your own, to get a new tattoo I'm sure.

I'm not sure why you corrected and made it a double negative.
