I'm planning on getting tattoo and I need some advice on which one I should get?

I want to get one on my hip. Help please?

The ONLY reason you should get a tattoo is if it means something to you. If its part of your story. Not a butterfly or something "because it's pretty". No. Just no.

Very true. Tattoos are usually a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling.

I don't even like butterflies...

God, it was just an example. That's seriously the only thing you have to say?

I guess, but don't mistake me for some girly-girl though. (Just sayin')

don't just get one for the sake of getting one. it has to have meaning to it

It will, but I need Ideas

the idea should come from the meaning.. not the meaning from the idea. I suggest you wait to get your tattoo until you figure it out

Don't get a tattoo. I now I sound stupid, but worst idea ever. How will it look when you're old? Yech.

It does, but not that bad

it doesn't hurt at all it's warm and tingly

It depends on location really. If you have a high tolerance for pain then it's not so bad.

Agree with the other responses; it has to mean something to you & I would advise against it. Soon the fad will be over & many people will look ridiculous. And yes; it hurts.

I'm not getting a tattoo because it's in style, I'm doing it because I want to. Btw, I can deal with pain.

don't get your tattoo idea from strangers.what will you think about when you look at it for the rest of your life? It needs to have meaning. I think you should wait a while before getting one.

What does the tattoo mean to you? What is it representing? What kind of imagery comes to mind when you think of this event/emotion/person?

Try to get something that reflects your personality or something of sentimental value. I have a guitar on my back and I love it because it was may first Gibson Les Paul guitar. I plan on getting some tribal art next and to finish my hand piece. :)

Cool

Don't get anything you think you may regret like names :/ When I said "finish my hand piece" I really mean" alter it so it doesn't represent what I really got it for". I'm tired of looking at it.
Report as
Oh, I wasn't planning on doing any names. I've seen too many people with name tattoos that meant nothing to them now.
Report as
exactly!
Report as
With the exception of family names of course but I would steer clear of boyfriends, friends, girlfriends, etc. I hear it's more painful to have them removed then actually getting the tattoo and it still doesn't go away.
Report as
Yeah, definitely. I was thinking about getting my boys' names tattooed on me, but what do you think?
Report as
Oh definitely! I'm going to do the same with my daughter's. Probably in an infinity symbol on the back of my neck :)
Report as
Good idea, thanks a lot!
Report as
No problem!!

Please rethink your idea of getting a tattoo. If you want to impress your friends, get something temporary and then you won't regret the idea a couple years from now.

Oh, I'm not trying to impress anyone. I simply want a tattoo

If you want one...don't rush. Everyone who is in to them will tell you to wait. Think of what you want and sit on the idea. If your mind does not change after a year or more, then you know you picked the right thing. It will be on your body a long time. I know people covered with them that have their own rules on how many years they wait before adding a new one. And the reason is exactly what I mentioned...making sure they want that on their body forever.

Just don't get anything translated into a Japanese/Chinese character that only says "water" or "luck". Imagine having that English word embedded to your skin? How silly that'd be? "Teddy Bear" tattooed on your forehead. YES, go with that one. a Teddy bear on your head!
