Should I, Shouldn't I? - Tattoo Indecisiveness

So, today's post is pretty random but after coming across a really unusual tattoo on tumblr, I just knew that I had to share it! I've been two minds about getting a tattoo for years, yes years! Since school I can remember drawing them on my hands, stencilling potential designs on a notepad and hell I've even been to one or two tattoo parlours. But, something always stops me from just going for it. Maybe it's how popular tattoos have become or maybe it's the fact that they are so permanent, or just maybe it's because I am the most indecisive person ever? - see I can't even decide on that!

Either way I panic that I'll regret it after one year day and then well...I'll be stuck with it. I also worry about where on earth I would get one done?! As I'm such a small person, I wouldn't want anything too big and overpowering, so in my head I've always imagined a really small, simple black ink design. Usually these types of tattoos look lovely on the wrist, behind the ear, on the shoulder or even on a foot. But, I also want it to be somewhere that isn't too noticeable, particularly when considering the field of work that I'm wanting to have a career in. Hummmm... Any advice would be great! 

In the meantime this is the tattoo I was talking about, although I'm not too hot on colour tattoos or the design if I'm truthful, I think the technique that has been used is absolutely stunning. I really love unusual tattoos, particularly the ones that stray away from the bog standard template design that everyone seems to have. Yes I'm talking, anchors, stars, feathers, the infinity design etc. (I don't mean to offend anyone who has one of those designs, but you must know what I mean, right?) However, when thinking about what design I would personally like...well that's an entirely different indecisive dilemma.

Maybe I'm just not cut out for this tattoo lark after all...


  1. I personally think that, given your concerns, the best thing to go for is something like you've picked there, something that is pretty and doesn't necessarily have too many ties with real life relationships or anything. I think as long as you visually enjoy the appearance of it, your opinion of it won't change so drastically that you really regret getting it done.

  2. Yeah I agree! I'm thinking of getting my sister to design a nice simple one as she's really good at art. That way it will be unique and sentimental to me. Thanks for the advice :-) X
