New tattoo and anxiety

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I just got myself a new tattoo for my mom and dad and I loved it until a colleague misread the tattoo.

If you read it as a text and pronounce q and k together(qk, some people write like this when they dont want to write "kuk") it sounds like dick(kuk) in my language(swedish) and now i cant stop thinking about it.

I have been having a lot of anxiety over this and now I am already thinking of doing a coverup if possible or remove it.

Anyone else who have had a similar experience when someone misread your tattoo in a bad way?

Wow, I can't see having any stress over that.  Don't worry what others think/say, if it means something to you and/or your family, enjoy it and don't worry!  I'm betting that in 95% of your interactions with others it will be covered anyway.

Adopt an old man's attitude... screw 'em!

so stop having anxiety over it,the tattoo looks very legible to me,and tell your colleague to shut the hell up,

that's a pretty cool tattoo IMO.

love it,embrace it,wear it with pride, and don't worry about what other people think of it.

Whomever said that to you was a jerk. First, the tattoo was for your mom and dad - it's yours and you got it for all the right reasons.  Second, I don't know if it was a "friend" that said this to you. Regardless, the comment was inappropriate. If you have a chance, you should tell them how much the comment upset you. 

THEN, get on with enjoying your new tattoo.

Thanks, it really helped. No he is not friend like that, only a work friend.

I nerver knew that people write qk instead of "kuk" in Sweden so it was quite a shock to me.

But you guys are all right, it means something to me and the majority won't read it as a word and I have to stop thinking about what he said.

The thing was that my mom and dad have not seen the tattoo so I was worried that they may missread it too.

Ive attached a 3 years (give or take a month) photo of one of my magpies by Mr Dunning  - just done on the right - today on the left - yes I know it's the wrong way round Actually  - while none of us is getting tattooed - how about a pic of your favourite that you have had inked  (or favourites that you have had inked) and a link to Instagram for the artist  (or artists) what do you reckon?🙂
    • My appointments with Garver and Rubendall were cancelled. Blah. That being said, I do have a cool commission happening. 🙂
