I don't know what the "adopted symbol" is but if you are old enough to get a tat and it's the tat you want......well then by all means, go for it.......that's the beauty of body art, there's no right or wrong as long as it means something to the person having the work done......

It sounds good in theory......but have you ever worked over-nights? It's crazy how you really don't fit in with the rest of the world when you're an over-nighter.....you're somehow outcasted unless you make a real effort to make yourself belong.....

NOOOOOoooooo.....I don't work over-nights, my Sister does! Although I used to work over-nights.....it's strange sleeping the day away and then waking up and having it be dark outside.....8)

Toys for Kids, not Tats for Kids. Tatters for tots, OK.

Nobody else has any right to tell you what is right or wrong for you to tattoo on your own body. The best tattoos are meaningful to the one wearing the tattoo.

Go for it. Just make sure it's something you can live with for the rest of your life, and be prepared to explain to people a hundred times a day what it is, because I have no idea what an adoption symbol looks like.

It's like a cross between a fishhook music note, no wait, that was the "artist formerly known as Prince".

I've never heard of it, but if its something you're proud of and you like the way the symbol looks, then I say go for it.

It's a triangle and a heart. The heart represents the love and the triangle represents the three party's involved in the adoption. The birth parents the adoptive parents and the child .

If you appreciate your biological parents for giving you life and your adoptive parents for raising you then I say do it. My advice is that you should make this design your own. Add something meaningful to it besides the symbol, or have a tattoo artist design it for you. Use the symbol as a starting point and then add color, patterns, or words that you would like to go with it. Do you have any tattoos already? I have a few and I love them all. Tattoos are very addicting as well; I know you've given plenty if thought about this one but make sure you plan out any additional tats you get in the future.

Is it ok? I would say yes. Is it a good idea? That depends on a lot of things like size and placement. Personally I don't like tattoos, but then, you wouldn't be putting it on me. As I understand it, it's supposed to be mainly for people who were adopted.
Discuss the idea with your adoptive parents and see what they think about it. You might consider a pendant or something less permanent than a tattoo but the tattoo shows commitment and so does adoption. Just don't put it on your neck or face. That's asking for trouble.
I have two nephews and one niece that are adopted. I think adoption is great especially when someone is adopting a child that has some challenges. Most people want a brand new baby but a ten year old child of a drug addicted and abusive birth mother has a harder time.

A child getting a tattoo --- no.
An adult (age 18 and legal) who was adopted as a child --- yes.

Too bad there's not a symbol for: if someone has to tell you not to do that you shouldn't be reproducing.

As an adopted child as well, I'm getting the symbol tattooed on me with my parents names, both adopted and biological. My adoption is a very significant part of my life and it saved me. So yes, you can get this. It's not just for parents.
