When they're teenagers, they'll be embarrassed of you no matter what for a few years! :)

(Even with that cool tattoo you have.)

Thanks. And yes I'm sure they'll be embarrassed of me ;-).

Looks beautiful, you have nothing to worry about. Even if it's a really big tat you did it in a pretty personal space, it's not like you tattooed both your arms. Cheer up!

super cool tattoo and you did it proper at that size/scale. It's powerful. The tattoo will smooth out a bit and feel more natural with time, once it settles in. No room for second-guessing when you get tattoo. It's great, don't over think it, just think about the next one.

"Really big Tat" aaaaaahhh! ;-). Well I think this is one of the reasons why i got panic. I know I can hide it if I need to. But as said I'd rather change my mind into being really proud showing it and just not bothering about it ;-). 
It sure is an interesting process and I'm currently learning a lot about myself on top of it.

Thanks a lot. It really helps to hear all the positive comments. I have something in mind to complement my new Tattoo but first I'll just need to let it settle.

^ one of the great things about tattoo that I think a lot of the average people getting tattoos overlook and miss out on. kudos for picking up on that.

Yep, I agree with everyone else here.  It's a fantastic tattoo, and it'll only look better after it settles into your skin.  I've had my fair share of tattoo regret, and it's faded every time.  Sometimes within a couple weeks, other times much longer.  Give yourself time.  And I know you don't want to do the other side of your back (at least not yet :10_wink:), but a whole back piece built around that tattoo/style would be effin' rad IMHO...

Thank you. I'm still having my weak moments but they're getting less. I am giving myself some time and of course my goal is to adore and be absolutely in love with it. I mean this is why I chose it and decided to go through with it, right?
Everyone here has been a huge help so far and I'm really amazed by it. So thank you!

Hi All
Everybody has been a really great support in here and I'm letting my tattoo settle into my body. I just have another question regarding my work: The lines are really close to each other. Do you thing the spaces in between will dramatically fade into each other over the years?

yes, maybe a little over the years, why worry about it ?

there is nothing to be done about it, don't obsess over it.

it's a nice tattoo, enjoy it ,love it, show it off, and plan your next one.

Hi there. 
Just wanted to say thanks to all of you for your feedback and compliments. 
As an update, I'm feeling so much better about my tattoo and I'm liking it more and more and it has become part of me and who I am. I had some tough times and wow my mind went crazy.

You're opinions and words have helped me a lot getting over the negative thoughts and emotions I had and I'm really glad time has made me realise why I got my crow and even though I couldn't really show it off yet, I'm quite proud about it. 

This is a great community here and I really appreciate the honest feedback I got. Thank you!

I think it looks amazing!!! I actually really really love it.

Don't worry, it's easy to have tattoo remorse. Especially for bigger pieces-- really, you just need some time to adjust to the change. Hopefully soon you will start feeling it as part of yourself!

Thank you. Maybe you didn't see my previous message ;-). I'm actually doing much better with my piece. Still adjusting but I like it more and more.

    • 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?
