    Right I've got my idea, my artist and I know I want this, I've wanted it for a long time.

    But how do you bypass the 'OMFG this is a life time thing', I can't seem to bypass it even though I want this tattoo, ney I need it.

    Its my back, which is ideal, its just for some reason I can't get past that stage, even though in June I'll be 20, probably by the time its finished.

    I just wonder how people jump into the decision how they drove themselves to get their first tattoo.

    tbh Steph I built myself up and up about getting my first tattoo, but it wasn't until the day of the tattoo that I started having my major freak out.

    I think it's just natural progression. There is no set limit as to how long it takes you to process. I honestly, and know this sounds reckless, don't think think about the permanence much anymore. The issue I have is "Can I really get this done? I want to make sure I saw the skin for the right piece. Is this the right tattoo?" as bare skin will at some point be a rare thing for me.

    Don't force yourself into it. One day I think you'll just wake up with that certainty and contact the artist

    On their show, I have never, ever seen a tattoo being done, with any hint of bleeding. However, after watching other programmes, such as London Ink, I've seen other artists causing a lot of bleeding whilst they work.

    Is bleeding natural and the first shows I mentioned are just covering up all signs of blood on the television, or are the latter just not as adapt at tattooing, thus inserting the needle too far into the skin, causing the blood?

    I just want to verify that, so I can ask the tattoo artist some questions before getting anything done (I like to be kept in the know, and I don't want my first tattoo to put me off entirely and leave me feeling regret, after all).
    Your skin is being punchured by needles over & over again, of course there will be blood.

    Point made, I know the placement is perfect, the artist work is outstanding, but I keep wanting to find faults in his work just so I can say no.

    Which is ridiculous, I've wanted this since I was 15, I'm going to see him regardless, I think once I make the transistion to sitting here to actually booking an appointment with him, it'll be better.

    Thank you for this!

    I still have much thinking to do before getting tattooed.

    God, why do I have to have such irrational parents.
    I wish my mom would just let me get one done.
    She says she'll stop paying for my college, but at the same time, she really isn't, it's all student loans, so technically isn't she really in the wrong?
    Then my dad always says how until I know what industry I'm getting into, being tattooed and pierced is a foolish idea.
    But everywhere I'm getting a tattoo is where it can be hidden so I don't really see the problem.
    It's just so annoying when everyone around me is getting new ones, even people who are underage, but their parents just happen to be cool.
    It makes me even angrier that they are allowed to get tattoos when they're such sh*t, the ones I would get would be well done.
    It's just not fair.
    Current
    Ears: Left forward and standard helix, left tragus, left daith. Right rook, right double inner conch. 1g and 14g lobes.
    Face: Right nostril, septum, vertical labret.
    Other: Tongue, standard and inverse navel, left and right nipple.
