Courage before the first tattoo

by Leoli »Tue 24 May 2011 17:39

Hello
I'm new here and I have a question for you (I didn't find anything suitable during my search).
i have thought a lot about my first tattoo and in my opinion found the perfect motif. I also have the money available at the moment. The only thing I can do is make an appointment, but somehow I haven't been able to bring myself to the point.
did you need a little courage for your first tattoo or is that a sign that i should rather leave it?
it's a big step, I think. How did you know it was time and have you already regretted your first attempt one or the other time?
especially if it was several years ago.

Many have regretted the first attempt here, but not because of the tattoo itself, but because of the quality.
A lack of courage is always a sign of uncertainty for me (motive, position, what do the others say, how does it look in 20 years ...) - and therefore a sign for me to leave it alone until you have all the uncertainties cleared out.
The biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it took place (George Bernard Shaw).

I have a different opinion
Starting something new in life, or crossing a border, jumping out of a plane with a parachute for the first time, it all takes a little courage ... why not a tattoo?
You don't know exactly how and what happens, how big the pain is .....
As long as you have the courage and dare to do something new that you wish for, everything is palletti.
Now you only need the perfect tattoo artist for your perfect motif, whom you can trust and who can advise you well.

I'll join in with monkima.

Basically, of course, it's not bad to listen to your subconscious inner voice. Maybe that's why it took me so long, for example, to venture into a studio and tackle my long-standing dream.

I can give you the following example from another life situation:
I am an editor. And has been for 15 years. Even though I knew for a long time in my head that I would have it better as a freelance editor, it took an incredibly long time before I made up my mind to take this step. I saw such an unbelievably high, insurmountable mountain in front of me that I thought it was simply impossible to cope with all of this. All the official procedures, looking for a tax advisor, plunging myself into the unknown, etc. pp. I put the YEAR on because I always thought: I just can't do it. But then, when I finally had the courage (that took almost 5 years!), Then suddenly everything went very easy. Totally unbelievable. Of course there are still one or the other hurdle to be overcome, but: very easy!

And it was the same with me with the tattoo. I've wanted to get a tattoo since I was 18. (and I'm really glad I didn't do it right away - otherwise I'd have a tribal sun on my neck now ) But after the first step, everything was suddenly so easy - again!

So my conclusion: healthy "self-skepticism" is good and right, but more than going to a studio and then thinking "oh no, that wasn't it somehow ..." cannot happen to you in the end!

I don't know if that will help you, but still good luck and a lot of courage for something that will (most likely) change your life - because: then it will be bumpy and won't go away anytime soon.

It took me 15 years before I dared to do it and I am still angry today that I put it off for so long.

You have a motive, the desire for it and currently the money for it ---- GO !!!
enjoy the day, it could be the last

what do you think that is? When it comes to choosing a motif, everyone seems to have done everything right so far. but that's exactly what people who are against tattoos always use: "at some point you don't like the motif anymore"

It is usually less the motif itself than the execution.
With many, an appointment should come as soon as possible and of course it shouldn't cost too much, and then you rely on tips from colleagues ...... and you have a great motive, that but unfortunately it was only put on the skin in a very ugly way.
It is important that you get yourself really well informed before you simply run into the best studio, unfortunately there are many who can do one thing well and that are cucumber ...

Have a look at the studio recommendations here, or start your own search, I'm sure they can give you a few tips
