Don't be a fool...don't label yourself for life. If you think it looks attractive, it doesn't. If you think people enjoy looking at it, they don't.
If you think you will be proud of it in 20 years, you won't.

Why do most people get inked when they are young? Cause when then they get older they actually think it through.

My opinion is the opinion of the majority of people. And so you know, most of us make fun of you carnies with your tats.

"Do you have any interesting tattoos our company could show our clients!" No employer has asked, ever.

Well for it being the opinion of a majority of people, there are a great deal of people out there with tattoos. There are people who enjoy looking at them, there are people who enjoy expressing themselves this way. Your opinion is yours, obviously this person's is not the same, they asked advice on a respectable establishment to get a quality tattoo, not if they should get one.
Most of us that apparently fall into the category of "carnies with tats" feel sorry for you that you have to berate others and judge them for something that's not affecting you. If you don't like them, don't spend time looking at them. Some people do make stupid mistakes where tattoos are concerned, but there are others who think them thru and get beautiful artwork.
Last time I went in for a job interview, with my college diplomas and glowing recommendations, I didn't feel the need to raise my shirt and show my completely covered tattoos to my boss. Although they are beautiful and well done, I didn't feel it was appropriate to show them in the work environment. Just because you have a tattoo doesn't mean it can't be covered for work, or other purposes.

In my opinion, different drummer is a good place to go. Ask for Jake. He charges a fair price, does great work, and is a pretty funny guy to talk to while you're getting the tattoo. He has done all of mine, my boyfriend's, and a couple of my friends'. Think it through though. My advice is, figure out what you want, then wait a while. Make sure you aren't going to change your mind a month later. Don't rush in just because you're 18, or have a "well I can only spend $40" idea in your mind. Make sure you're ready to get what you pay for, and to have it forever. I've had mine for years and still think they're beautiful every time I look at them.

Actually you are assuming they want to know of a good place to go, they posted seeing an ad (as in "I was thinking of getting one") and their age being "18" (as in "I am not old enough to make a lot of smart decisions yet"). And they are seeking advice.

I gave it.

and a poll was done recently of people 30 and older who got tattoos in their teens and the majority (83%) said if they had to do it over again they wouldn't have done it.

food for thought.

I like your sound advice but hate that such an intellagent person would ruin their body with perminant ink.

"Hey grandma I tell my friends you have the best looking tattos of all the other grandma's" Something grandkids don't say, ever!

Many of the tattoos I've seen in people 30 and older aren't of the same quality as the ones I've seen which have been done in more recent years. I believe it all depends on the person, I'm not saying some people don't end up with disgusting or hideous tattoos, but I believe they can also look good and be covered at the appropriate times.
I appreciate that you think I am an intelligent person, but I don't feel I've ruined my body with permanent ink. If you saw me anywhere other than the pool, or somewhere else I'd wear a swimsuit, you would never know I had them.
"grandma I tell all my friends you look the best of all the grandmas with your shirt off" also not something you generally hear. I did not get my tattoos for everyone else to see and think they're beautiful, I got them because I think they are, and if other people see them and appreciate the artwork, that's great.

See, this is what I don't get. You get a tattoo so when you uncover it (let's be honest, you hide it out of embarrassment) you can look at it (in the mirror or looking down at yourself) and just "ooooh and ahhhh! at how good it looks? Do you get a new hairstyle and just stare at yourself in a mirror? If you are not getting it for others to see, it just sounds very weird to me.

why do u have yo keep pushing ur opinion on everyone? do u feel superior? cuz I can tell you ur opinion is not the opinion of everyone I love admiring the work others do it is neat to see the expressions of people I am getting inked cuz my dad passed away and want a memory of him forever its not going to be seen unless I'm in a swim suite and defanatly won't affect a job. just give it up ur arguing with someone Whi doesn't really care for ur opinion don't get a tattoo we don't care if u like them or not but there are lots of people who do and a lot more older people are getting them because they have a meaning. I think its best to think long and hard about what u want and check ur artist previous work out before u jump in their chair but if ur smart u can get nice ink.

No, I'm not in anyway embarrassed by my tattoos. I just know that the places that they are located on my body are not appropriate places to display in all situations. I have tattoos on each ribcage and down my side, therefore I'm not going to walk around town in a shirt that simply covers my breasts. Also, that would be chilly.
I am very proud of my tattoos, if they were in places that shouldn't be covered in most situations I'd proudly show them. At the same time, judgemental people like you who assume all people who get tattoos fall into some lesser category with one another make it difficult to show good tattoo work because good people are discounted by something you yourself compared to a choice like a haircut.
When I get my haircut I don't choose it based on other people's opinion. I choose it based on what works best for me.
well

Tattoos aren't just art they represent a memory or event to be worn with pride. Now I will agree that later in life my ink will fade but I knew this when I got it. The only thing I can tell an 18 yr old about getting ink is make sure it's something you could live with for the rest of your life. Honestly talk to your parents, talk to the artists get their opinion. Just ask people who have ink and what they think.
