Sooo..........I shouldn't have gotten that spider tattoo that's on my neck?

i veiw my tattoos as personal and private. an expression of artwork of memories of things in the past. a couple are tributes, a couple are simply reminders, but they are something i keep very private. very few people even know i have them, and even fewer have even seen them. part of the reason for keeping them private and pretty much hidden is that i feel no reason to display them or to have to answer questions about their meanings, because i feel that their reasons for being there are mine and mine alone. another reason is that some people are offended by tattoos and can cause preconcieved perceptions about first impressions at times. when i meet people, i want them to know me, not what they think i am by the tattoos i have. these are strictly my personal reasons and are in no way what others should do, because i am not offended by those who have tattoos they display.

who said that? i was just making a general statement. its really up to you if you should have gotten a spider on your neck or not....my question would be....do you still like it? does it still hold any meaning for you? or do you hate it and want it gone?

but, almost everyone i know....who made a quick (and often drunk) tattoo decision....regretted to some degree later on (and many have even removed them)....overall, those that were thought out and done well by a talented artist seem to stand the test of time better, and make people happy. just my experience. certainly doesn't apply to everyone.

again just my opinion, but i think before you sit down and that needle is buzzing...you might ask yourself.....will i still like this in 10 years? will still have meaning or importance to me? or will i hate looking at it every morning?

if you want a tattoo as a passing fad or spur of the moment dare, maybe those temp ones that last a few weeks is the better choice.

Sonic, not sure how old the compass is, but adding to existing tats can be tricky...like trying to match paint on a car...

You may not want it to look like an add on, some ink fresher than the other...

Different artists have different techniques too...

My .02 says the compass stands very well on its' own...

good post, and i feel the same way. i won't go out of my way to either display or conceal my tats though (cept at work). and i don't mind talking about them. in fact, i've always thought of it as a club...and a good way to get to know someone. but i couldn't imagine putting something permanent on my body that meant nothing to me. but, i actually started on tats a bit older..so that may be the difference.

i know tats offend some, but that attitude in honestly in the minority now. i don't want to offend anyone, but then in general, i don't think people have the right to be offended by how someone else treats their own bodies in general. (unless they really stink in close quarters maybe ).

i'm pretty much live and let live in that regard.
