Neck Tattoos and Careful Decisions
If you had to get a facial tattoo, what would it be? If there's a good answer to that question then I haven't heard it. It's never a good idea to accuse someone of regretting their tattoo. And the truth is that you can never really mention that people sometimes regret their tattoos in mixed company, because you have no idea if the people standing around you have a bunch of band names or people's names permanently written on some tucked-away part of their body. If I ever see something and absolutely decide that I want it tattooed on my body, I'll take a picture of it and then carry it around in my wallet for three years. If after those three years I still want the tattoo, I'll draw it on my neck with a Sharpie and try it out for a couple weeks before taking the plunge.
