I was a bit of an idiot in my early 20’s and got a fairly rubbish Chinese symbol tattoo in the hope of impressing a girl. It didn’t work at the time (although we’ve now been married for 11 years!) and I ended up with a poorly thought out faded tattoo on my arm.
Not long after I had the original tattoo I lost my Mum to cancer. At the time I decided to get a memorial tattoo but decided not to rush into it and think it through.
16 years later (on the anniversary of her passing) I had this done;
I now have something on my arm that means a lot to me and that I can be proud of. It has also covered up the rubbish Chinese one. I might get another one, but it might take me another 16 years to decide!
no but i have a couple scars
Fifth grade, unwisely put a sharpened pencil in my pants pocket with the point up.
I don't regret it, but I'll never do it again.
That's not true of quality work in most skin. It used to be a common thing to see tattoos either fade, (too shallow in the skin), or get fuzzy, (too deep), because there were many poor practitioners and many people who didn't know the difference.
There is plenty of good work out there that has survived a lifetime looking great.
A lot of old people still believe that all tattoos just fade, or get fuzzy. My aunt used to tell me never to get a tattoo because of how much she regretted hers.
She had the name of an old boyfriend tattooed by someone not even pretending to be a tattooer, that looked like a kindergartner wrote the name on a paper towel with a marker.
Her dad had a big fuzzy skull on his arm. I always thought it was cool that my grandpa had a skull on his arm, no matter how blurry. What would a sailor know about picking a tattoo artist in WWII?
One of my favorite things about tattoos on women is that old men don't like them.
Yes, I did that also.
I see it right here, below the ring finger on the right hand. 4th grade, maybe 3rd?
You may be very right, I was always told they fade and from all the older ones I’ve seen were faded, but that doesn’t mean you’re wrong. I guess only time will tell !
I suspect there are lot's of very crisp and vivid gang tattoos that will easily last their lifetime...
I don’t have any tattoos, and I don’t want any. For some reason tho. I like to watch ink master. I also like checking other people’s ink.
