If your artist really took the time to plan out your tattoo and draw up something special for you, don’t be an asshat and forget to tip them.
Same anon who asked about the arrow tattoo. What do you think about collar bone for placement? With the arrow pointing toward my heart, as a way of saying "follow your own heart/path." I would also definitely design my own arrow or have my friend design it for me. I also don't think he's someone who's ever going to leave my life. I know that's something unpredictable but the things we've been through together are much deeper than the average bestfriendship. I wouldn't get it if I had doubts.
Collarbone would work but I will warn you that it’s going to be pretty painful since it’s nothing but thin skin and bone right there. I like that placement so I don’t want to discourage you from it, just be prepared for it. You could definitely point it towards your heart or just put it right over your heart running horizontally. It sounds like you know what you want, just go with your gut feeling. :)
Do you think getting an arrow tattoo is cliché? I know a lot of people get them bc of the meaning that when an arrow is being pulled back its being launched toward something greater. I love that but I'm considering getting one for my own reasons. (I look at it as a symbol to follow my own path, aim for my own target & follow my dreams regardless of others. Also my bestfriend is a Sagittarius & he's a huge part of my life so it would remind me of him). What do you think? (Unique) placement ideas?
Here’s my opinion on popular tattoos these days: If it means something to you then go for it. If you are perfectly okay with permanently having something that quite a few other people have, then that is totally your choice. I know that personally I used to be a huge fan of a lot of the popular tattoos cycling around; that’s exactly why they’re popular! I saw the arrow idea about a year ago and loved it but decided later on that I would rather have original designs on my body. Just a personal choice! If you want to make it really unique, have your best friend draw it for you or at least design your own unique-looking arrow. Make sure that you’re okay with having your best friend as a part of your life forever because once that tattoo is on your body, it’ll remind you of him whether you’re friends or not in the future.
If you’re looking for unique placement for the arrow I would not suggest the wrist, ribs, or forearm. That’s a common placement just because the design fits well in the space. I’ve always admired the inside of the upper arm area. Look at your body and decide where you can admire it the most/people can see it the most and then decide if you want it running along the vertical lines of your body or if you want it to stand out and be horizontal. Any tattoo artist can help you out with that. Don’t worry what other people think of your tattoo, do what you love.
i dont understand how people can just get tattoos without even giving it a second thought i cant even find the commitment to stick a sticker somewhere
