Fresh Canvas, Ready To Start


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, Fresh meat here. I have been about 80% there about getting a tattoo for about a year or two now. As I write this I am 24 years old. Currently I am dating a girl who has a large one on her leg and is contemplating going full squid leg, as I see you guys call it (oh god what have I got myself into). Anyways that was probably the last push I needed. I have been HEAVILY researching it over the last month and half or so. I have decided to get a Japanese/Asian style tattoo as I just love the way they look and some may say I am a little obsessed with east asian culture :P and have been for the last 8-9 years now. I want to get a martial arts related tattoo, as I practice traditional Tae Kwon-Do by the favorite student of the man who invented Tae Kwon-Do.

Now right now I just can't decide on placement. It's between upper right arm or right pec. Eventually I would like to go full sleeve, but can't afford that right now and I feel like a full sleeve is a bit too big of project for a first tattoo. I was thinking of something like a martial artist standing, looking defeated under a sakura tree, seemed like a good idea but I don't know if i can fit all the proper detail of that on my arm without it taking up half my arm. I was having the idea of having a few rose pedals fly off onto my chest a bit. But i would also like to do something similar on my left arm/shoulder down the road, so I also have to think about symmetry. AHH so many options. Any bit of help, helps.

anyways, thanks to anyone who actually reads that.

...uh sup?

    • ... and xanax is on hand. Lol. My tattoo artist says I'm waaaaaaaay in my head. To the extremes.  It's strange. I feel fine with forearm tattoos tho. I do feel the couple I added yesterday helped a little, but I never wanted a "big" tattoo and it's just very jarring. Anxiety is a bitch. I wish I was more like...who gives a shit. All my tattoos have "zen" images and meanings, meanwhile I'm the furthest thing from zen there is. Lol. I guess I compare and question my design and need to get out of my head. My best friend is getting her tattoo from my guy BECAUSE of this tattoo of mine. And she has a gift certificate to somewhere else,  BUT she's going to him because of my tattoo. So, that says something. Says I need to shut up take a xanax and rock the damn tattoo. Lol.
    • Lol...no sleeves for me, that would send me straight to the grave. Lol. Thanks for your reply. I gotta get thru it and own it. I just got 2 new ones yesterday and it sorta brought it all together, but I still nit pick thos one apart. And I shouldn't but I do. I may have it wrapped around or something. Anxiety is the worst. Seriously awful. Wish my brain was care free
    • Anxiety sucks. What to do? Make it into a sleeve? Add tattoos around it? Make it part of a scene? I can relate to anxiety, but thankfully I never had tattoo regret. I’m in the last stages of a body suit, so if I did get it, I’d probably need a carload of Xanax.
