Do you Hubbers mind if I ask a couple of questions?
How much does a tattoo on your foot hurt?
How do you find a trust worthy artist (in terms of price, hygiene etc)?
I have wanted one for years and I'm still too nervy but mines more a scared of taking the steps to get it done.
I also can't really decide what I want.
Find out local tatttoo parlours you would consider and check them out on instagram... Some have cult followings and u can tell by looking at their work (which they usually post every tat they do) if they are decent or dodgy.
Recommendations, reviews, go into several studios and have a look around, talk to the artist. If you see a tattoo you like (and feel comfortable doing so) ask the person where they had it done.
When you find what you want you'll know. Just keep your eyes open. As for nerves, I had them big time but once I sat down and started talking to the tattooist I felt relaxed (kind of, hard to explain).
Yeah I regret one of mine. I've spent more on laser removal and gone through more pain in having it removed than I did having it done in the first place.

I do regret some aspects of some of mine (I have 7). When I got my first 1 I was 15 and I wanted one so badly! I didn't have much money so just got a cheap small one and most of mine are like that. I really should have saved up the money to get bigger better quality ones. The 1 I regret most was done by a girl I used to work with, she got a tattoo gun off eBay and brought it to work one day and I let her do one for me, it's horrible quality but I don't have the money to fix it up.
I don't regret getting my tattoos and plan on getting more as soon as I can. I do regret not researching artists when I got my first one which us why I have just had a cover up done. I have had my foot done and it hurt but it wasn't unbearable but I have put that down to the fact that it was a memorial tattoo for the babies I had lost and so I was in a different mind space. My Mum always says to my husband and I that people will judge us on our tattoos but we just tell her one day the younger tattooed generation will be the ones running the country.ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1365716427.697354.jpg
