So, I am very interested in getting my first tattoo and have been thinking of lots of ideas of what and where to get it. I am still really thinking things through making sure it is what I want for the rest of my life. I know I am young, but I live in the moment and I follow my heart. I am quite mature so if I do get it, I know it will not be a mistake. Im a guy by the way.
What I want is the Alpha and Omega symbols, one on each forearm. I got the idea from Christofer Drew, an artist who really inspires me. It does also have personal meaning. Here is a picture of it:

Could you guys let me know what you think of this tattoo idea!

And also, does anyone have any idea how much that would cost(approximately)

I know it is a little harder to cover up, but honestly thats I want. I dont care what people think or say about it. Its something I want.

Let me know what you think!

Thanks 🙂

In one sentence you ask for opinions on what we think of the idea then you say it’s what you want so you don’t care what people think. Also, it has personal meaning to you but you’re copying it from someone else? Make up your mind. So for the record, and not that you care, but I think the idea sucks. I also don’t think getting tattoos in such visible areas is a good idea, especially for your first. But you’re obviously quite mature as you say so I wish you good luck with it.

lol…I dont care what other people think if I do have the tattoo I was simply asking what you guys think of the whole idea and how it would look. Just because I dont care what others think does not mean I cant ask for an opinion beforehand? And yes the idea of alpha and omega does have personal meaning. Just because I like the area and the way that someone else has it does not mean it means nothing to me, otherwise I wouldnt get it. So if you could please stop mocking me and attempting to make me feel like an idiot, I’d appreciate it.
Anyways,
thanks for your opinion.

get a good meal down you before hand and take a lucozade sport with you, sounds stupid but peoples pain thresholds are different and you don’t know how you will react to the pain.


Are you going to bark all day little doggy or are you going to bite?

I always make sure I have had a good nights sleep the night before and eaten well, I also have a berocca, just before as well as have water to drink during the tattooing, and I have some good music on my i pod to distract me!!!. Good Luck

Ive always quite liked those symbols for tattoos but i would really consider not having them the same size and in the same place as that guy in your link. Maybe together or close on the same arm, also upper arm. Personally i wouldnt change the font i like it how it is.

But at the moment im striving to make sure anything i get done has been halped on with the imagination of the tattoo artist as i want it to be as much a 1 off as it can be.

you might not need distracting? i find it relaxing and always watch what the artist is doing
