I think it would be fun but whenever I start to ponder it, I can never decide what image or symbol I would feel satisfied with having on my body forever. I used to like unicorns years ago; now I don’t particularly care for them and certainly wouldn’t want one tattooed on me. More recently I collected turtles, but find I like bunnies even more. My point being, the tattoo-able objects that would represent my personality keep changing so how can I be sure what I would get wouldn’t eventually become something I didn’t really care about any more? And that would be awful. I probably over-think this, but it’s the reason I doubt I will ever get a tattoo.
I occasionally get a Henna tattoo to satisfy the need for ink. 🙂
In the past dh has been very against me getting a tattoo so it wasn’t even anything I thought much about, however more recently he has said that he wouldn’t mind something small so I I’ve contemplated it a bit but like Duchess could never hit upon anything I like enough to be sure I would want it permanently on my body. I’m also not sure where I would place it that wouldn’t be visible even in a bathing suit, dh is not ok with a male tattoo artist seeing a part of me covered by a bathing suit. My sister and I talked about getting matching tattoos but if I did that it would be on the inside of my foot and it wouldn’t be private or just for dh. Dh has said he would like it, but I don’t feel a burning desire to rush out and do it and I do feel a bit of hesitation so that is enough for me to hold off for now.
We are both in agreement that neither of us will have any tattoo, not even in the private areas. Mainly based on the previously mentioned examples – our taste will change and then you’ve got something on your skin that you don’t like. We don’t see any benefit (but risks, for that matter…). I guess we’re boring 😉
Neither of us has or desires to have a tattoo. I wonder how these kids who get really tatted up are going to think about their “art” when they are in their late 40’s and older….
Our DIL has had a small (1 1/2″ high) tattoo of Daisy Duck on her calf just above her ankle since early in their marriage 18 yrs ago… not sure why or it’s significance to her and our son. Even though it’s not obnoxious, I wonder if she’s regretted having it at times like formal events… of course, if she’s wearing a gown it may not be visible anyway.
