First let me start by saying, although, I can barely draw a stick figure, I still really enjoy the whole concept of art in general. With having said that, I really enjoy body art. I would like to put a special emphasis on this because, although a lot of people don't mind getting their tattoos done by someone at their home, I will always prefer going to a known professional for mine. Some people are more comfortable with letting anyone tattoo them. Myself, on the other hand, if I'm going to put something on my body permanently, I would prefer someone with a lot of experience and who has a very good understanding of how to lay ink to skin.

Ever since I saw my first real tattoo, all I could think to myself was, "I can't wait for that to be me." If tattoos are done well, in my opinion, I think it's some of the best art to ever have been done. First of all, you can't judge a tattoo by its stencil. Stencil's are just the basic form of a tattoo. They're what the artsist needs to get him or herself started. Stencil's are really nothing more than a line drawing. Unless, of course, the artist wants to go all out and do a complete drawing of the tattoo before you get it. I think that your best artists only need their stencil, and then they can make the tattoo really come to life once they put the needle to the skin. Personally, I would rather see the tattoo as it comes to life. I just think you can get more of a wow factor from it when they do it that way.

Although I've wanted a tattoo for a long time, it wasn't until last year that I had got my first one. It was a full sleeve in black and gray on my right arm. I was so glad that I waited until I did. I can't imagine some of the bad tattoos I would have gotten put on myself before then. At this present time I have started working on my second full sleeve on my left arm. I decided to go with color this time. It took me a long time to commit to getting a tattoo. The biggest reason is, I just didn't know where my career was going to take me. However, I think a lot of people now a days would say that tattoos really don't bother them. I would also like to add, that I will never get a tattoo in a place that I couldn't cover up. Some people like to get them on their neck, face, and hands. However, that just isn't me. Like I said, I officially have two full sleeves. I probably won't stop getting tattoos for a long time. Although it may sound painful to some, I really enjoy being tattooed. It's kind of my extreme that I can do in my life. I'm not a fan of roller coaster's, skydiving, mountain climbing, and the like. So I'll just stick with my tattoos. If anybody ever reading this page thinks this is something they may be interested in, I say give it a try. Just make sure you see a professional, and not let your cousins, brother's, aunt, who says their friend is a good tattoo artist do it.
