    My next tattoo will be my whole chest. Not sure why people care about the 'visable' factor unless they are the ones looking at them??
    The visibility of tattoos can affect chances of being hired for certain jobs.

    I have 2 tattoos. Zero regrets here. One is on my hip bone so can only be seen when I'm wearing a bikini (less often these days 😏). It's a vine with a flower. Pretty. The other is the Chinese symbol for dance on the outside of my left ankle. It's visible but small. I love it and know that despite what happens to my body there will never be a day that I don't have dance coursing through my veins so I can't imagine ever regretting it.

    I really want another tattoo on my right wrist. I'm hesitating over the design. I want a J and a G intertwined (first letters of my kids' names). I'm feeling particularly motivated about it lately so hopefully will get it happening.

    Anyway, my advice is, don't do it until you're sure. But if you're sure, then go for it. But I'm pretty philosophical about stuff like tattoos. If I end up disliking it when I'm 60 well, meh. In the grand scheme of things it's not a massive deal to me. I understand it is to others though.

    Yuuup!!!

    Although in general I really don't care what people think of me. I do care about my career though, more than tattoos.

    I have 4 tattoos 3 on my feet and 1 on my hip. The one on my hip is my favourite it's something from Harry Potter (massive fan) but iadapted it into my own life and it has major meaning to me. It can be covered by thick undies. The ones on my feet are meaningful but can't be hidden. Weddings, funerals and when I was in hospital they were all on show sometimes I wish they weren't there.

    I'm 37 and don't have one but I always wanted one - just couldn't find anything that I wanted on my body forever.
    I have wicked scars though!

    Your scars tell your story much better than any tattoo ever could.

    I advise "no" to everyone who says they are considering a tattoo..

    When I was 18, I thought tattoos were super cool. Older family members and friends showed me theirs and the edges were all faded and fuzzy looking, the inks faded, and the tattoos looked old and icky. I was told my someone else that tattoos have come a long way, inks and guns are so much more advanced, they don't fade and look awful as they age anymore..

    Well, I naively believed the wrong person and went ahead and got a tattoo. I'm now 35 and my tattoo is UGLY! The edges are all faded and they've run, the colours are faded and ugly, there's no definition to it and I hate it!!

    I now want to get laser tattoo removal, I've been using a chemical peel to fade it slowly, started about a month ago, but it's not really working..

    So, I vote, don't do it..
