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!

    • So in the end, they emailed me saying they have to reschedule and they needed to be with family. I asked for my deposit back and they said it was no problem and to just call the shop and ask for it. I think your right atomicmagpye, the tattoo gods are telling me something lol. Luckily I got in with another artist, I was planning to go to anyways, on friday to get the same subject in a different style.
    • See video for what happens when someone tattoos you in an RV - or in this case a car. It's the acceleration, corners and braking that usually cause the issues. It may be possible on a long stretch of highway - but still not usually recommended. skip to 35 seconds in for the educational bit.
