Hello, i might be getting my first tattoo i a few weeks, and was wondering if this was a good idea for one, or just plain dumb. 1st grade to 8th grade of my life, it was hell. i was bullied, pushed around, and struggled with my grades. i almost commited suicide and i was kicked out for standing up for myself. i am thinking of getting this tattoo to show that i survived 8 years of hell, and lived. thoughts? Im getting it on my shoulder.

If you feel the need to ask if the tattoo you have chosen is a good idea then you are not ready for one.


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

Good that you stood up to the bully wankers, cant stand cowardly pricks!

Anyhows, the story is a good one and would be nice to get an ink to remind you of better times.

The picture for me personally is far too boring but thats just me. I would think up a great design picture wise but if you like that go for it!

If thats what you want get it! But a tattoo doesn’t need a heart felt story behind it just has to be something that you want.

sorry to hear about your experiences, but I must agree with Peter. Also I don’t think it will look great as a tattoo. It kinda reminds me of a dreamcatcher, which can look good on skin. Maybe you could modify your design to suit, just an idea.

It has been my experience that if you walk into a shop with your idea set in stone with perfect reference material and you want it to be exactly the way you drew it, (especially on a first tattoo) your going to get exactly what you wanted. A tattoo that you designed. Having said that most people cannot design things that translate into good lasting tattoos. In my opinion walking into a tattoo shop with a very general idea of what you want is a better way to go. Tattooers are artists and can turn your idea into a great permanent fixture on your body. But you have to do your do diligence on the right artist. You need to be open to constructive criticism, about the subject matter, if you want the best possible work. Again in my personal opinion tattoos need to be collaborative. If you aren’t crazy about something speak up and tell them what you don’t like about it. I’m not saying to let yourself get steamrolled into getting something you don’t love. But be open to your artists opinions. Also tattoos don’t all have to be a memorial to your lost dog or 9/11 (here comes the backlash) if it has a story great if it means a lot to you, awesome. Just make sure its something that you love to look at.

end of the day mate, not everybody can like the same type of tattoo’s if you like it you shouldn’t listen to anybody else’s opinion to be honest 🙂 Your the one wearing it at the end of the day:)

It’s always nice to get some opinions but the final choice comes to you.
