    Default Q for Choppa & Opinions from Others

    Howdy Forum!

    I will be getting my first tattoo in a couple of weeks and have been humming and ha-ing over what I should get. I know I want a dragon tat later on but want something smallish to start with.

    Well been thinking and thinking because I want something that means something to me. Not something random.

    Well.....

    If Choppa doesnt mind I would like to use:

    Beauty
    Strength
    Loyalty

    It means something special to me and no matter what breed I own I will never agree with BSL. I just think it is special.

    Chop do you mind mate?

    What are others thoughts? Where should I get it done; somewhere I can keep it private unless I want to show it off?! (please remember Im skinny ie. OUCH for ribby spots ;p)

    not girly enough? (im not that girl anyway lol)

    Please imput!

    A blue bird near one of your boobs, or a rose on your thigh, not much meaning in either I know, but very decorative.
    I always wanted the blue bird, but I guess by now it would have become the size of a pelican.

    I have a large back piece that's easily concealed! That being said, I also have a very visible one on my wrist... But since what you want to get is text, I'd think you could get it on your back, above or near your shoulderblades? The area is relatively painless because there is muscle there. Whatever you do, avoid the spine and the top of your foot, or anywhere that there is not a lot of fat. It burns.

    I have one on each hip, easily hid away but easy to show if I want to.
    You have to remember that a lot of businesses don't like hiring people with visible tattoos, and also if you want to go out to a fancy restaurant and wear a posh dress.. tattoos showing doesn't always look the best.
    Just my opinion but I like ones that can be easily hidden, it depends on your lifestyle though.

    Mine definitely aren't girly tattoos, and frankly most people think they are ugly, but I like them and that's all that matters.
    I chose them for my love of Egyptian mythology.

    Tattoos are a personal thing. Get what you are happy with and get it where you would like it. I don't think Choppa owns the words you want so not sure why you think need to ask permission.

    Good luck, just make sure that you are happy with the artist. Check out their work and I always prefer to go with someone who specialises in the type of tattoo I am getting eg portrait, old school, black and grey etc. Make sure you are very happy with the design etc before you ahead as its on you for life. Remember they are very addictive and no doubt you'll be back for more. Would love to see some piccies once you are done.

    My suggestion would be to draw to the best of your ability the tattoo you are thinking about on yourself and then put several items of clothes on to see if it will be completely covered if that is your wish.

    When I got mine I wanted to be able to completely cover it so that's what I did. Put it in a place where the flesh will stay firm as you age, have children or weight fluctuations.

    Myself I personally like a larger tattoo rather than tiny ones as women often get, I want to be able to see what it is (should I wish to display it) rather than having people staring trying to figure out what the blob is.

    Finding a very good tattooist is by far the hardest part. It's worth making two appointments so that you can discuss your design etc, walk away with the idea, and then come back to have it done.

    Hey guys cheers for the feedback.

    Reason I asked permission is because chop has those on a pic of Choppa dog regarding BSL. Just thought I would ask lol.

    I already know the artist. He is very good and have seen heaps of his work (mum has one)

    Yes I would like to conceal it.......I feel that tats showing when trying to look formal ertc look 'tacky' just IMO

    I think back is good for concealing and showing off if you wish.
    Whatever you do, make sure you eat something first. I don't eat breakfast and 5 minutes in my blood sugar dropped and I nearly passed out. Was very embarrassing.

    I think BSL is a transient thing - a bit like having "Free Nelson Mandela" tattoo. I'd make it something more positive and more enduring.

    It's basically the thought behind "don't judge a book by its cover" or even "beauty is only skin deep".

    I occasionally think about getting a tattoo of a seahorse or a leafy sea dragon on my birth mark - it's already a big brown blodge - why not make it a more defined artwork.

    Not sure what would work for you JTDNTB. But I'm hoping BSL dies a death from lack of truth so I wouldn't want it tattooed on me.

    MAC is right about picking a good tattoo shop. When you decide, ring consumer affairs, the health department or some local GPs and check that they're ok.
