I'm getting a tattoo, and I want it to have a MEANING. Any ideas?

Not anything big, maybe on the wrist or something.

You should take the time to come up with a meeting for concept otherwise there's no point in getting a tattoo
it's all about individual art

No ... It's a meeting! We're all getting together to decide what tattoo this person is getting. We're having pizza, curtesy of Hippy. I'll bring desert. Y'all can fill in the rest. See you there.

That makes "no sense". And is really childish.

If you really want a tattoo, get something that you are really interested in: (like nature or animals or karate or trucks or dancing or food or fishing).

Just make sure 'where ever' you go to get a tattoo, they use clean needles and clean ink, otherwise you could get a disease or virus that could make you suffer horribly or could make you die early.

With all due respect what has meaning to some, does not have the same meaning to others. I have "It is What it Is" inked on the inside of my wrist in text from a very, very old standard typewriter because this has been my mantra for many years and I liked the appearance of the letters from this antique typewriter. I have a few others as well, although not lettering. Apologies for not being able to give you an idea or the answer you seek because it's permanent and has to be your preference.

Very good answer and so true.

Thanks so much. I really like that answer, and I was thinking of Imperfection Is beauty. How does that sound?
Report as
ibe, that sounds great or you could have "imperfection is beauty from within". I am excited for you. I remember when I got my first tattoo on my ankle. It seems we as girls always start there first. I hope you will
comment back after you are inked. I have one important suggestion. Pick a font or your lettering, take a sample with you, and ask who in the shop enjoys doing letter tattoos the most. At most, if not at all shops, the artist, should know how to do most tattoos, some are more skilled in one style of tattoo than the other. If you ask "whose the best" the common response given would be "we all are". So as not to offend, and no mistakes are made in the spelling of words, don't use the word "best" use the word "enjoys" inking lettering the most. You make me want to get another. Have fun and I bet it will be beautiful. Enjoy your evening. = )

"for" not "or" your lettering. iPhone autocorrect... Sigh

My friend got a piano octave tattooed on her ribs, and another friend got a tat on her stomach of a cut you could see butterflies through. One guy friend got three gears tattooed on his arm, one for each of his kids.

Yea, that's whats worrying me. I was thinking something along the lines of quotes, like imperfection is beauty? Does that sound ok?
Report as

Quotes are awesome.
Just please make sure the ink and needles they use are "new".

Have a tank of some sort. To me they symbolise strength and power and relentlessness, but also gentleness. A hippie peace sign would be good, aswell. Other thing that symbolise peace are good aswell

Tattoos are very personal. Pick something that has a lot of meaning in your life. I have a lot of tattoos and they all have personal meaning to me. Don't pick something just for the hell of it because you want one, you will regret it later. Talk to people you know about artists and look at their work, look around the shop and see how clean it looks. If it looks even slightly dirty DON'T do it there!

Thanks! I've already planned out what I want it to be, and I will definitely make sure to go to a good shop.
