To ink or not to ink – that is the question many of us toy with before getting a tattoo. After all, once we’re inked, we want to look at it 30 years down the road and still have the fuzzies for it. It’s not exactly easy to scratch it off after all, unless we’re as creative as Johnny Depp.
If it’s your first tat, the jitters are totally real. If you have commitment issues, perhaps even more so (we jest!). But getting the body art you’ve always dreamed of can be an invigorating and fulfilling experience. How do you know if you’re really ready for your first permanent ink? Well, check off this list for a start!
