Thats not bad just make sure the place ya go to is Clean, Clean, clean you can tell the minute you walk in .... Smell.... Look..... is the trash can full? overflowing! ...walk out..

Go a few days ahead to "talk" with the artist.. Remember a tattoo is ummm like you know permanent?

So if going to get one Don't go by the "oh yeah everyone gets thiers done there" you need to see past work done on others and not work that is two or three days old.

Also avoid red color as much as posssible that and brown color.

It does not happen to everyone however red color turns into welts or bumps after a year or so on many people when they get in the sun and brown does the same however not as much.

A good tattoo artist can also do good freehand drawings check out the art that they do and it can give a decent indication of what to expect.

That's some good advice-thanks. There's a place nearby where we've had some piercings and they are well known clean and licensed. She's going to be 18 soon, which means she could go on her own, so at least this way I can make sure she gets something discreet and tasteful. I think she wants a couple of little blue larks in flight, which should be ok. I'm not looking forward to seeing her in pain though. There's an outside chance that if she sees someone else getting one close-up it'll put her off!

What about that 'erasable' ink I've heard about?

My (then) 17 year old niece was bound and determined to have a softball related teddy bear placed somewhere on her body. Softball was her life and she was being scouted by universities 2 states away. We (wife and I) begged, cajoled, talked heart to heart, pointed out older women with green stains on their arms from faded and sagging tattoos, etc. until she agreed to put it off.

The softball thing fell through and she was heading off to school on her now completed journey to become a dentist.

Every now and then, she thanks us for talking her into waiting as whatever she would have been interested in having permanently inked into her body back then would hold no interest for her today.

Yes, as my kids get older, I try to advise rather than dictate and for the most part this policy has worked insofar that I've experienced no rebellion and no 'incidents' with any of them. This tat thing started in the neck region but a few pictures of disfigured old hags put paid to that idea. She will no doubt read this thread and may even make a comment.

Take her to the urban dictionary and have her search for "Tramp stamp".

Ahem, she knows what her nanny looked like and she's seen her mother turn from a stunner to a ******, so that penny has certainly dropped.
