IMO as long as you have earned the right to have hand and neck tattoos then there are no other rules,

the only thing  IMO is that your first tattoos should never be hand or neck tattoos.

I have both hands and both sides of my neck tattooed, do whatever you and the artist think looks good to you and on you.

Unrelated: This reminds me of that woman who got upset that a really good tattoo artist refused to tattoo her kid's name on her neck in an ugly font. She had one or two other tiny tattoos, and she wrote a whole article about how awful he was and how she got some hack to tattoo the name on her anyway.

I remember that article. She probably wrote another article later talking about how everyone regrets tattoos and crying about her laser removal.

To the OP - same as my thoughts for a woman - if you have to ask, you're not ready.

summer time ... when you find out if the neck tattoo folks you've been seeing all winter are truly Defenders of the Faith. nothing makes you look like a wiener more than wearing a tank top with full neck tatts and bare ass arms and chest :p

get your body tattoo first, you will have more appreciation for the neck experience and respect for and from the tradition and subculture of tattoo. and I second @Hogrider '"if you have to ask, you are not ready"

my $0.02, do what you want

Full exposure is a no go for me. I only have tattoos that I can cover with ordinary business clothes.

Spend the money for really great tattoos in such a highly visible spot. Russ Abbott has done some stunning neck stuff.

I don't think they look good so I won't get them. I feel the same about turtleneck shirts. Of course this means nothing. Other people think they look good and they get them. 

So I guess the real question to the OP is... what do YOU think about neck tattoos?

I work in very conservative environment. My ink is very personal. I dress in clothes that easily conceal my ink. Neck/hands are not an option. Neither is a full sleeve.

If you are in a position to do so without negative consequences....go for it.

    • Thanks @Gingerninja !    
    • 1) You can shave or they can...I always shave myself. 🙂 2) Yes (kinda). Bring your music and earbuds. Eat. Drink. Rest up the night before. Bring snacks. Lots of sugary snacks. Six hours is a long appointment. Bring a pashima or hoodie to make yourself extra comfy. Don't forget your phone charger! 3) You are going to be stressed about your flight but you will be fine. You will be all wrapped up! 4) There will be plenty options to drink you water, coconut water, Gatorade, etc. It's not like you are pinned down.  You got this! @naturalbornchiller
    • Hello! I hope that this is the right place to ask these questions - I've already read through the entire thread and found lots of excellent information, so thank you all for that!  I'm getting my left upper thigh and half of my back tattooed in December/January, and I was wondering, if I'm not very hairy (I'm Asian so really just a tiny bit of peach fuzz), will they shave me anyway before my tattoo? I'm also wondering if anyone meditates to help deal with the pain?  This is my first large tattoo (I have 2 fairly small ones already) and after reading through the back tattoo thread, I'm a little worried.  I already meditate now and practice breathing techniques, but I want to be as prepared as possible.   I have to travel for my tattoo (1.5 hour flight each way) and for my first session for the outline (6 hours scheduled), I have booked my flight in and out on the same day - was this a silly move?   Last question that might seem really dumb - if the majority of my tattoo will be on my back, I imagine I'll be lying down on my front a lot so I was wondering if I should get a straw to drink water from?
