    Default Opinions on Peacock Tattoos

    Hi all

    I was wondering if I could get some opinions please?
    I'm planning on getting a sleeve tattoo to cover some very old scars on my arm. I have thought out and planned the design and my first appointment is a the end of next month. I'm now having doubts on the design. The design is a flowing realistic peacock surrounded in purple roses, cherry blossoms, green butterflies, and blue flowers (maybe a lotus). My worry is (after reading lots of articles) that a peacock may (to others) convey an image of being vein/shallow and self-absorbed (this not my opinion)

    My question is, what would your first impression be of a person with a large peacock sleeve, would you think the above?

    Thank you for reading, I hope you can help! | Please be kind

    I have an extremely in-your-face peacock chest piece. Then again I don't give a f**k what anyone else thinks of me.

    As long as it's a well-done tattoo I wouldn't think anything other than "that's a nice tattoo". But that's the opinion you're likely to get on a modification forum

    I'm with Hazel on this! lol... Have you seen Hazel's beautiful Peacock tattoo on here? I also don't really give a "do dah" what people think of me either. If you love your tattoo idea have it done. If I saw someone with a large peacock sleeve I think my eyes would pop out! I would love one but, haven't got the patience to sit for too long now-a-days.

    I'm too old and tired and been through too much to care what people think of me. I refuse to waste any time in my life on such meaningless things. So much more to focus on.
