I work in a customer service role, I love tattoos but I'm torn between having visible ones (arms and legs) and not. My friends have small wrist and upper arm tattoos from their holidays and love them. I'll be the first person in my family, if I go ahead, If I have a tattoo. Will I regret this?

Your gut feeling is what matters as you know your personal and work situations better than anyone else. There's negativity still attached to tattoos as a lot of employers are from older generations
dislike body art from their upbringing. The size of the tattoo and also the company policy towards tattoos matters if they must be covered with long sleeves however if you love customer service as a career then no, I wouldn't have an obvious tattoo because it will limit you employment opportunities by 1/2.

If you're trying to get a tattoo to do something outrageous, don't.

If you're trying to get a tattoo to fit in, don't.

if you're unsure how if will impact your career and relationships, don't. Better safe than sorry.

so many people have tattoos so don't think it will make you unique. Believe it or not that's a reason why people have them done.

I regret my first tattoo because I rushed into it without taking the time to research a good tattoo artist. I felt the design and line work should've been better. I wish I had it in black instead of blue so hopefully I can have it redone but then I don't like it anymore. People change I know this because I've changed and my first tattoo doesn't symbolize who I am as a person anymore. I was 18 when I was first inked then waited 5 years before having more. If you're 18 don't get tattooed. Grow up a little and live life before making lifelong decisions. Are you in college? Professionals are expected to cover them up. Thankfully mine aren't in the face unless I wear gym gear then you'll see it.

Here's my advice.

- Remember that tattoos aren't expensive when they're on your body for life
- Quality before price! It there forever! Get it right the first time.
- Will you still like the design when you're 60?
- Understand that tattoos fade
- Never on the face
- Never on the neck
- Know who your tattoo artist is
- Know what your previous tattoo artist's work is like
- Research your alternatives
- Never a rude design
- Make sure it coverable for work
- Care for your tattoo
- Design your own. Never a design that 5000 other people have had tattooed

Don't get tattooed when you're unsure. Get a funky haircut, cut and colour with highlights instead. Hair isn't permanent so you can change your style without longterm regrets.

I dislike tattoos.

I can accept a single small one on a partner but nothing more.
