This. My rule for getting myself inked has been to decide if the art holds significant meaning, then wait a year and see if I still want it.
I did the same thing. 4 years and 4 ideas later, none have "stuck" I'm also scared shitless to get a tattoo, I always joked around saying "After I have a kid the pain of a tattoo wont be so scary to me" But truth is I was so drugged up during labor I didnt really feel anything.
Possible Tattoo Ideas have been a memorial tattoo for my grandpa He raised me and was more of a father to me than the asshole that impregnated my mom. He ws Hawaiian so i was thinking of getting a Hibiscus flower in his favorite color but idk where. But then I will feel obligated to get one for my grandma when she passes.
A tattoo for my son, but idk what, I think getting his name or initals is stupid and cliche.
My wedding ring tattooed. I lost 40 pounds since I got married and the ring doesnt fit, But i heard you need to touch it up alot and if its really painful that wont happen.
I'll probably end up never getting one
