I was just watching LA Ink and I've been thinking for a while I would like a tattoo. Something in a place that I can easily cover. I was thinking maybe a lotus on my foot or something. Do you have any tattoos or want one? What is it of and where is it?

what tattoo you chose should be very meaningful to you. A lotus is a very powerful symbol. Personally I always wanted on of Brian frouds Smashed fairies on my bottom.

That would be so funny. And only a select few would get to see it. That's great.

I have lots of tattoos (on my back, forearms, ankle, calf, etc) and I absolutely love them! If you are considering your first tattoo, give it a lot of thought before you go to the shop. You want to make sure that you find a design that is meaningful and powerful to you and then an artist who specializes in the style you have chosen. There are three articles on Associated Content that I wrote about choosing a design, a location and an artist. If you are interested in reading them, my username on AC is Mavy. I hope they help!

What great advice CouldaShoulda. I have 6 tattoos and wish someone would have suggested that to me before getting my first one. Not that I regret any of my tattoos or anything, I just think I would have waited longer instead of getting my first one the day after I turned 18 so I wouldn't need my parents permission lol.

Hi there. I have a few nice tattoos, that are meaningful to me in there own way... I have a dragon across my foot, a harley davidson motor on my upper right arm, a vine around my belly button, a tribal design of my native on my lower back and a couple of japanese symbols on the inside of my right fore arm... I think once you get your first tattoo, it can become addictive to get another lol... Watch out... The pain is like, a burning-cutting sensation...

The pain is the one thing that stops me from getting it done right now. I've heard from almost everyone I know that has tattoos that once you start you can't stop. Most people have more than one. Your's sound great.

I also love tattoos and I have always been fascinated by one. And from childhood I also wanted to get one. Now I have two tattoos in my body one in my back below my neck and one in my foot. I think this are the part where I can easily cover my tattoo if I don't want to show and I can easily show them off if I want to. And your idea of having a tatoo in foot is pretty good and above all I think tattoo in the foot of ladies looks kind of sexy.

That's what I was thinking. My friends think it's going to hurt more because there isn't any fat on your foot. I figure it's going to hurt anyways but at least this will look good.

Honestly maybebaby I have 6 tattoos and I am still not done. I want my next one to be of a teddy bear holding a rose with my daughters full name and birthdate. They are very addictive, and nowhere near as painful as I thought they would be. Then again I also have a very high tolerance for pain! Pµrþ|ëTëddýßëâr

I never want to have tattoos. First of all, I can't stand the pain to have it. Secondly, if one day I am tired of it, it is not easy to remove it. Thirdly, sometimes people will think the one who has tattoos is the bad guy. So I won't consider to have it.

First a lotus on the foot would look great but I dont think thats a good idea if its going to be your first tattoo because that area is real painful to get tattooed. I have two tattoos. My daughters name and birthday on my right shoulder blade..thats a work in progress, when I find something beautiful that fits my daughter I'll add it. My newest is a bird (my phoenix) on my left side..That was real painful once he got off the hip and worked his way up the ribs Heres a pic of my newest

I have no problems with tattoos. I personally don't have any and may or may not plan to get one in the future .. i haven't decided if i want one or what it would be if i did decide. The only time I have concerns about people getting tattoos are when they go in on a whim and don't know what they really want. I have friends that have a tattoo shop and have turned away people before because they don't want to just tattoo whatever on someone just because they want a tat. My husband has many tattoos and each one has a specific meaning and memory. I personally think most tats on people look great.
