    My oldest daughter has very expensive and beautifully artistic tattoos, her little sister jumped on the wagon in her 30s and opted for floral designs. Their kid brother was told as a teen, “ No tattoos and no piercings.”
    He decided to be different from his sisters. No ink, no holes, and hair a meter+ long.

    I always put off getting tattoos in my 20s because of chronic psoriasis. I'd asked my dermatologist about it and he was really dismissive, saying how he'd paid for his swimming pool taking them off people. I simply wasn't sure what would happen, so I went with a friend to a national expo and asked around and got a generally positive response. My psoriasis was mainly in remission, so went and got some work done above the employment line, no problems. Before, I'd a conversation with a good friend who's covered, and he'd mentioned something I had never thought of, namely that tattoos change the way you think about yourself in some way. Nobody gets one done for no reason. Whatever that reason is will be deeply personal, be it decorative, commemorative, whatever. Getting it done then changes something, not necessarily good or bad, just different. It may not even be lasting, but it's there. Some reflection on that for me was really helpful with my own decision making.
