Newbie Getting first tattoo

Recommended Posts

Hey, 19 year old guy here soon 20, I'v been thinking of getting my first tattoo. As my first tattoo I was looking to get a small one, maybe just above the ankle. I found a celtic knot, the mother-child celtic knot, represents the unbreakable bond and unconditional love between a mother and her child. It interests me mostly because its meaning quite hits me to be honest.. Now the only problem is I'm confused as some places call it the mother-daughter knot, some call it the mother-child knot.. what is it exactly? And second.. Is it meant for people like me ( my age) or for mothers?

Thanks

Welcome! If you like the reference, get it. It doesn't matter who anyone else thinks it's "meant for." It's not anything controversial or wildly inappropriate or anything.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
