Question Tattoo for graduation - August 21st 2010, 01:53 AM

Ok, so I was planning on getting angel wings on my back when I graduate high school, but somehow I'm having second thoughts about that. Idk. There is one idea I really like, and that's like kind of a reddish-pinkish coyfish in the japanese style, on a background of light blue all on my ankle-lower leg. I think it would be really pretty, at least the way it is in my head. Idk. What do you guys think?

If your second guessing the angel wing tattoo because it has grown in popularity over the years, it is the same thing with the coy fish.
To be honest you will probably think of a new tattoo soon. You are only thirteen and have many more years before you graduate. You will come up with a few different ideas I am sure.
Yes, I think the idea is a good idea. But personally over the next few years really think about a tattoo that you will want forever. Make it a tattoo that is personal to you and not just a tattoo that is something you like.


Always remember to put your happiness first.

A tattoo, is normally permanent, so if I were you, I'd do something that relates to you, like something about you. If this makes sense, I really like the angel wing idea though, thats really neat.


And I will take you in my arms, and hold you right where you belong.

It'll look so bad when your like 30-40-50.. not worth it. Make sure its something worth leaving a mark on your body for. Not just because its cute at the time.

Sorry to be a kill buzz.

No I understand. I want to do something really original, I thought the coyfish was original but I guess not. I'm gonna have to think this over some more.

Even though it is popular, I like the angel wings idea. Simply customize it to your likings.

Yes the coy fish are popular, a lot of people I know are getting them done.

You have about five years to decide and even then if you haven't come to a conclusion that you like something good enough, don't do it.

Just make sure it is something that means something to you. All of my tattoos have meaning to me.

The angel wings idea did have meaning, but i'm just not sure I want something like that all over my back.

If you have any second thoughts, it's best not to get it.
Plus depending on the tattoo size, angel wings can get pricey, since it's two large tattoos.
With the second tattoo idea, you seem unsure again.
Don't get a tattoo ever just because you think it seems pretty.
Do it because it means something to you or you like it a lot and you can survive looking at it for the rest of your life. Just something to think about.
