I like pirate themes, and I like to think of life as a boat going through rough and calm seas. I like to think of my heart as my compass. I like to think I am the pirate that does what needs to be done. I like to think my convictions are like a firm anchor that helps me to never get lost. I like to think I am the calm in the storm trusting my boat to hold strong no matter what. I will never sink, I will watch the sunrise on the horizon tomorrow.

I can't tell you what to make. Are you a classy person? Even a classy person can look good with smth mental crazy tattooed.

If its ure first maybe better safe then sorry.

Like trust ure tattoo artist to the death if you are going for a full back.

I already have large tattoo and worry grandma doesn't like it because of size. She's made comments about not liking it and liking big tatoos.But she took a pic for Facebook with no negative comment about posting it for people to see or that she didn't like it. She didn't make a negative comment when someone said didn't like it . Does that mean she really doesn't have a problem with it?

I generally think that if you have an idea, then wait a year or so, and if still want, then go for. (not with small tattoos of course... I'm meaning major ones like this sounds.

I like the theme of the pirate ship. Very interesting.
Tatoos have became quite popular.
I would avoid ones you can not cover up too. SOme jobs will not hire someone with large exposed tatoos.

My son in law is covered in them including his neck and hands and scalp. As it is he has his own business but I said the same to him about maybe needing a job at some stage and he said that business were more accepting of them. When I was working, admittedly it was a while ago but we were not allowed to have any tats on show.

I'd say get whatever tattoos you want, but as others said for job prospects make sure you don't have it on show for interviews :hug:

depends really on the job lets say you had a lawyer i personally would not want them to have neck or face tattoos because the way people will view him or her in the courtroom you can't control how others will perceive you positively or negatively but that's a rare example in most cases it does not matter

Each to his own taste. Me, I have a few. My latest is a large angelfish on my forearm.

my boyfriend has awesome tattoos
I would like a fairy one on my shoulder x
That's a good place. Not painful at all.

I had shoulder in 95, and sleeve started about 5 years ago which is 3/4 complete (though a bit more accurately, is about 5/8ths complete).

I keep things so I can wear shirts and not know any tattoos, for future job perpective
