i guess that's my thing, i've never decided what i want or where i want it to be,
as i have to maintain the professional appearance too. (so no cat stripes or leopard print on my face
i do enjoy hearing people's stories behind their choices.
a friend of mine's latest is a very large fairy tatooed on her back.
it's beautiful. she had it done after the birth of her 3rd child.has one for each time she gave birth. they are all very elaborate and she's always having more detail and color added as she has $. she's an occu therapist and yoga instructor. so she's in a line of work that it will not raise a lot of eyebrows.
i know 2 trained chefs who have them.
one is a friend from college and his are covered at his day job, an admin of group homes for special needs adults.
the other has very colorful sleeves. his day job is a factory. Both use their chef training for private parties etc at which people are totally fine with their tats if they are revealed.
as i told my nephew who is going to be 21. people will judge you as you job hunt etc. so pick something you like and have it placed where it means something to you. when he was finishing college, he went to an amature in pittburgh, pa ! he paid alot and the work is not good. spider web on his ribcage with a large spider. he will spend a small fortune to have it reworked by a pro for it to look good !
so if you are planning to get work done, ask someone you know. if you like the quality of the work on their body art,( color, detail etc) ask them if they recommend their tatoo artist.
