Jimmy is here

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm Jim from Germany. Im currently 17 but I'll turn 18 very very soon! Once I turn 18 I was planning to get a tattoo on my left pec. I want it to be a symbol I created surrounded by a fire circle. In black, I dont want any color.

I love tattoos and wanted to learn more about them, get some ideas here etc. Thats why I joined.

But about my tattoo. I was gonna ask if I should wait a while. I think Ive reached my final height now but I will probably get wider. I also started to lift weights and gain some weight. Im only 125 pounds! Will my tattoo stretch a lot if I get it on my left pec and over time I'll get wider and more muscular?

Nice to be here guys.

Obviously this is entirely your decision, but since you asked: I would wait. Not necessarily because of the reasons you listed, but so you have time to really think about the tattoo. This isn't something you want to rush into. Get to know some artists' work (in your area and abroad), look for inspiration not just on the internet but in tattoo shops, books, etc. Then go and get the tattoo.


EDIT: Oh, and welcome to LST!

    • Hi guys, (posting in this section as I can’t post in any other it seems) I have a guest spot in Canada all planned for next year, I’ll be going over from the UK. I just want to know what other artists usually do with getting through customs etc, as I know if they have a slight inkling that I’ll be working over there they’ll probably send me straight back home.  Ive been told about mailing over my tattoo supplies beforehand, but that also sometimes that gets denied when checked out by customs, and sent back.  I’m absolutely stumped with how to go about this, and am thinking of cancelling entirely and just having a holiday instead haha, as tickets are already bought and I don’t want to risk losing out on even being let into the country.    Thanks for any help!
    • Yes. I'm much older than you. And no, nothing is taking away from my tattoo. I like it much better than any of the ones you liked on the sheet. Hahaha. 🙂
