To Ink, or Not to Ink…

That’s the question a lot of people think of today… Should I get a tattoo?  One thing to remember is that it’s permanent.  So make sure it’s something you really want, something you’ll want ten years, twenty years, even forty years from now.  Do your research!  Word of mouth is usually the best way to find a reputable shop.  Check artwork other people have.  If the workmanship looks crappy, obviously you don’t want to go there.  Most artists will also have a photo album you can flip through to see samples of their work.

In the end, it’s a question only you can answer.  Don’t get a tattoo just because your friends did or just because you think it’s a cool thing to do right now.  Stop and seriously think about what design you want and if it’s something you’ll want when your fifty, seventy, or even eighty years old.

Now… you may be asking why I brought up such an odd topic for my mostly writing related blog.  I just got tattoo #5.  This one probably means the most to me because it represents my Luna Werewolves series.  The next one I want will represent my Ashton Grove Werewolves series… I’ve put a lot of time and effort into my stories and this is just another way of keeping the characters close to me.  In this instance, I got one of Cady’s tattoos from Vicus Luna. 🙂
