Hello everyone,so for the past few weeks i have been thinking about getting my first tattoo on and i have some questions. I wanted to get a small tattoo on my finger,little below my knuckles or in between my thumb and index finger on a hand. The tattoo would be a kanji sign for "three"(ill attach it below) and it would represent a person who saved me from suicide some time back (long story to explain in what way). I personally think that this is a good enough reason to get one and i also find it very beautiful and i feel like it will also represent my life because i wouldnt be here without that person(im doing amazing now in case anyone cares). Tho i have been watching a lot of videos on youtube and people there said that the chances are high that when someone as young as me(17) does a tattoo that we will regret it afterwards. I dont wanna have something that i dont want to be there on my body but i also dont feel like i would ever regret it,but i can change in future so i dont know. I have my parents permission and enough money. So i wanted to ask all of you,do you think that i would ever regret a tattoo that has such a big meaning and is also very small and simple tattoo? Thanks to you all in advance.

If you decide to get one regardless of advice, which is what I suspect will happen, at least don't get it in a place where you can't easily cover it up. When I was young I wanted to be a musician. I wound up in the pension planning industry for a long time. Talk about the most conservative, tight-ass group in the country! Any tattoos would definitely have been a deal breaker. I spent 15 years with short hair and wearing a suit and tie every day. I swore when I got out I would grow my hair down to my ass and never wear anything but jeans and a t-shirt to work again. I made half good on my promise. My hair's only half way down my back and I occasionally wear a shirt with a collar. When I go to an interview now, I wear my shirt sleeves rolled up. They might as well see my tattoos now because I'm not hiding them later.

    • I was able to add a picture I understand it will heal and fade eventually but I think the contrast of the ink is a different shade then the ink I already have. Also I feel like it’s a very busy tattoo for not being done.. can the white ink really change that like he says?
    • the new hand tattoo will be darker brighter more vivid than the rest of your  settled in sleeves.The hand tattoo will probably look more cohesive and not stand out so much once it settles in 6 months (without seeing it)
    • About two weeks ago I got my first hand tattoo, not my first tattoo or anything I have both sleeves done completely and even a neck tattoo. The hand tattoo is a tribute to my grandpa, it is a anchor with a banner with his name and there is a spider web to fill the rest of my hand as background. I would post a picture but I am writing this off a computer.  anyways I feel like the tattoo came out very dark in contrast compared to the rest of my sleeve it stands out and doesn't flow at all with it almost like I have a dark glove on, Idk if he did this because it is my hand and it does not hold ink as well so he was planning ahead but the web is very dark and over powers the anchor and my hand is covered in black ink. I know it is a new tattoo and its still angry and it will fade and calm down into a lighter color once it has healed but it still looks like its gonna have a darker contrast then the rest of the ink going all the way up my arm. I talked to my artist and he said the tattoo isn't done and there is still a lot of detail and white ink to be added to the whole tattoo to make it look better. but when i look at it it doesn't look like much can really be done because how covered my hand is in black ink from the web so I'm not sure what his plan really is . can the white ink he plans to throw in there really change the whole tattoo and how it looks/flows? Can tattoos look like this when they are unfinished and still need detail?  He is a great artist and I have been going to him for over a year now and I trust him because of the amazing sleeve he's done. I've heard of post anxiety from tattoos and I've defiantly had it before for maybe one or two out of the countless tattoos I have so I am aware it happens.  also maybe because its my hand and its uncoverable and always right in front of me maybe that is making the post tattoo anxiety a lot more intense? Brand new here was hoping to get some feed back maybe from some people that has experienced the same or tattoo artist out there that might have a response to this. Thank You.
