I'd say, try the temporary first. Since it's your first time, I'm doubting that you really want it. Maybe you just like the thought but sooner you'd see that it's dirty. Remember that tattoos are forever, and they wouldn't look as good as the first time you got it. Soon it would turn grayish green, then it would expand if you got fatter and there are those people (like me) who doesn't see the art in them and to us, it's rather dirty. So, I'd suggest you first try the temporary one. =)

the first time i had my tattoo, i was really peculiar with the design since it's going to be my very first and it's going to be a reminder of the worst day of my life, an event that i never and didn't expected to happen. first of all you need to consider the person who's about to inked you, he/she should be a certified tattoo artists and don't ever settle for just a person who will inked you, better be safe than sorry. second, the design. there are lots of design available already in the tattoo shop of your choice, but if you want something original, then why don't you just design your own especially if the tattoo has some importance for you. third would be the location, i choose to show my tattoo and it is located in my left arm. there are spots in our body where having a tattoo place on it is painful, those parts that are most likely flesh.

Hello amitjo20! I would advise you to use temporary tattoo first. Honestly, I don't like tattoo but if you like to have one try temporary first and if you feel like really having it and yourself is ready to have it, then try the permanent one.
