I just got my first tattoo of a little Forrest on my wrist and I’m freaking out literally till I’m crying because I think it looks in attractive.

Black is the easiest color to have removed.... Question: were you dead set on that design from the get go? And did your tattooer try to steer you away from going for the wrist forest at all?

Honestly it looks pretty cool. If you add on to it maybe like a night theme with a moon, animal of your choice, it’ll definitely stand out even more.

I personally think the tattoo looks fine, You can put a moon  like others have said and it would look awesome. Also before they tatted you up, did you see the design on your wrist, the way it would look. When I go to my artist, they usually ask me to pick the design myself, the size, what exact location I want it on, also the reasons for getting the tattoo, but I got good history with my tattoo artists, also if this is recently done, you might want to wait a while, let it heal etc, may even look better.

Also, usually before I got to get my tattoos me and the artist have a pre-session to talk about everything and ask questions, then set up an apointment, but like I originally stated it doesn't look bad at all.

i think it looks good and its not so big..maybe you are finding it dark?  but it will look much better in a few months once its properly settled into the skin and it will get lighter too .... i think its a great start, and incase you decide to continue it upwards, you can use some play with contrast and create a beautiful sleeve or half sleeve ....

honestly id just leave it for a while , let it grow on you, before making any rushed decisions...believe me, i made rushed decisions over and over before i learnt that lesson, and i've reached a point of no return with my tattoo that i dont like, and now its such a big part i hate, i dont even have laser as an option anymore coz there are just too may layers to deal with.

    • I'd like to see an update of this tattoo if you have added anything too it

    • @hannahlsj So is your tattoo still uncomfortable? (...and did you know the meaning of Hannah, as mentioned?)
    • New here, had been idle and haven’t gotten a session in about 5-6 years. Have an appointment March 18th with Jake Delbene (outside Philly where I live) to get a goat head with a little more evil vibe. Waiting for a response from Mikey Sarratt in Phoenix (My son lives there and I visit every other month) And hoping that I get a response from Chris Adamek to do a portrait of a really cool photo of my grandmom who recently passed. (Will probably be the only black and Grey piece I ever have)
    • @FXRrich Thanks a lot for your thoughts! I guess age has a lot to do with it... But thanks!
    • @onlyme I think maybe you’re just overthinking it. Find an artist whose style you really like and decide how big of a space you’d like to do and have a general idea or vision of what you want and let them create their interpretation of it down. If you get super specific and caught up in every little thing needing to symbolize and represent some profound moment you’re probably going to end up feeling at least some disappointment. Pick a good artist and you’ll get a rad piece. If you come discover another artist you like more or your tastes evolve then get another one somewhere else!  none of my tattoos mean anything and I’ve never brought any references in. I know the style I want and just point them in the direction I’d like to go. For example I think a wolf would look rad on my stomach. And then just see what they come up with. As long as you’ve chosen a good artist you’ll probably be stoked on the design. IMO these are the 2 most important things when getting tattooed: number 1 being artist selection and number 2 articulating your vision in a way that you’re getting what you want but not limiting their ability to give you the best tattoo that’s true to their style.
