Tattoo Advice


Picture 1 of 12

Sometimes when you have a big decision to make you need advice from people who have gone through a similar situation.  It this case, you need information or help deciding. . .

  • if you should get a tattoo?

  • when you should get at tattoo?

  • where should you put a tattoo?

  • what will your tattoo be?

  • what are the most popular tattoos?

  • where should I go for a tattoo?

  • how much will I pay for my tattoo?

This advice is for the FIRST TATTOO, after you’ve had one and don’t hate it after a couple of years, you can do whatever you want, but consider this as a starting point for consideration.

These and other questions are best answered by you and your internet friends.  I must confess that I’m only going to allow reasonable advice to be posted.  There is no sense in spreading ignorance. . . there is already enough of that going around.

    For the most part yes. However, and this is not a rule or law just a respect thing, if you have a taotto artist spend the time and effort on drawing a piece for you, usually you should get that taotto from that artist. It’s sort of like an unwritten law kinda thing. Unless you completely hate the design and work in which case I would wonder why you went to that artist in the first place. Anyways, the point is NO they should not charge you to draw it but if you get the taotto they should do it.

    Thanks so much for this site! It has helped out a bunch!

    I’m getting my first tattoo in March with some friends about music (Music is my life and soul, an without it, I can’t live. I almost went into maniac depression when I broke my arm and couldn’t play trombone…after one week). However, I still have some questions. I know the design, and the color (just black.) and everything, but I don’t have a placement nor a price. What do you guys think? Anything you can suggest at all to help me?

    Thanks in advance,

      Thanks Rachael, It seems that you have put a good deal of thought and research into this already. That is GREAT. The placement part is tricky. You have to pick a “complementary” part of your body. That is, a part of your body that is one of your strong suits (but maybe not your strongest suit is case it messes it up). If you have a “nice back” but “funny looking feet” then you would want to draw attention to your back, not feet. If you play piano (or anything with you arms/hands), stay away from your arms and hands, as that will detract from any performances. Obviously, it should be easily concealed, and not too large. Statistics show that upper body tattoos are regretted more than lower body tattoos, so you may consider that. Safe is lower back to one side. As far as price, let your design dictate price, because your body is priceless! Pick an excellent artist, and the price should be the price. . . just stall until you have the money.
