    Getting my first tattoo *now with pics*

    A girl i know is apprenticing, and well i figured id be her victim, i mean practice subject, for her second tattoo (first was on the artist that she is apprenticing for).

    im giving her my thigh to do whatever she wants on it.

    the way i see it is, im starting my rather large multi session side piece sometime in november, and well id rather know what im getting into before i start on such a large project. plus its a good story for the kids lol.

    i dunno any pros cons you can think of havent really thought it through but im pretty impulsive.

    I just wouldnt get a tattoo at impulse...but that's just me. Atleast try and think of something you would want...so there are no regrets

    Ummm sounds like a bad idea...... I mean she could be great and all but I would never give a friend or SO anything to tat on me. Because you could hate it or her down the road. Think of something that moves you or a good memory and have her make it to something and let it be shown before

    an apprentice at my shop did his 2nd tattoo on me and it turned out great. if their teacher taught them well then it should be ok. i say go for it, just make sure its not big or too complicated for her.

    out of everyone im glad you were the one to side with me :)
    i just figured id show some people her flash cause every thread is better with pictures and to get an idea of what id be getting.

    i didnt just tell her to do ANYTHING she wanted, i gave some guidelines as in the style of art i wanted.

    it will be something like the 3 above drawings, much less complex of course because it needs to be a 1 session thing.

    I think it'd be cool. Not many people are brave enough to do that. If it sucks you can hide it or have it covered, but if it turns out good you'll have a hell of a story to tell. Hell, if it sucks you'll still have a good story to tell. You'll just have to sugar-coat it so your friend doesn't get mad.

    yeah its on my thigh, im a pants wearing kinda guy and even when i wear shorts they go past my knees so only a select few will ever see it unless i purposely show it to them. so thats part of my logic although im sure ill show everyone anyways.

    i understand that she probably cant do a great job yet and im okay with it, I enjoy the fact that I can help her out and that one day when she is more experienced she can do some of my large scale tattoos.

    if it sucks i wouldnt cover it up this means something to me because its generally what i represent, i would put my body on the line for others at all times.

    I wouldnt do it if I were u. I would take the time to pick out what I wanted and get it done by a pro. Its there forever. I got one on the back of my neck that was kinda spur of the moment and I regret it. I have 2 others that I took the time to pick out and waited til I found the right ones and I dont regret them at all.
