If I ever get a big sleeve piece or something it WILL have a santa hat I promise but that's in the far future when I'm far into the music life and become a tattoo enthusiast

I kid, I'm not the type of person to get covered in them or even a sleeve. Never got into tattoos til this year. It's like, when you're around them all the time and it's a part of your subculture you just get interested in them and learn to appreciate the art

y are you getting that wat does it represent

This is the thing you need to think about. Everyone will ask what it is and why you got it. Everyone will judge you on your replies and your art. Just saying "its something important to me" ain't going to cut it for most people. You put that on display, expect to be asked about it. People see tattoos as an ice breaker, they have nothing to say they will ask you about your tattoos. If you aren't comfortable explaining why you want it before you even have it then imagine when you do get it.

 

Its your skin and you should decorate it how you like I'm just saying be aware that you should get something you like the look of and actually has some sort of meaning for you. Not something just for the sake of getting something because you want one, or because you want to be a musician and musicians have tattoos these days.

 

Also how long have you wanted this? My advice is to stick it up on a notice board for 6 months to a year somewhere where you will see it every day. If you still like it after that then consider getting it.

 

You been into tattoos for a year and its part of your current subculture? What about next year and the year after that? Will you be in different subcultures then?

 

All your reasons sound childish. You are permanently branding yourself, labelling yourself into a certain category. Sure, tattoos are seen in a different light these days but you will get treated differently. Think about that rather than how cool you think you will look. If your music is good you stand a chance of being a proper musician, having a tattoo wont make you any better.

The thing with explaining tattoos is like this: It's a very loaded question and nobody owes anybody an explanation on what they choose to get except themselves. A life story reason isn't necessary to get a tattoo but I certainly have one that I can't explain to the general public because it really is personal, so personal that I don't even talk about it on Sal's to random strangers who may or may not read my blog.

 

It's going on my upper left arm over one portion of my self harm scars that are already stuck on me for life in multiple places, and this is all something you can't just tell somebody on the street if they ask "Nice tattoo what's it mean??". I think it'll look a lot better than the cuts this band saved me from. I've been able to call myself a fan for over a decade and I'm pretty sure everyone grows old with that one band they'll never stop loving. Maybe they stop listening to them or whatever but you never forget how you felt when you listened for the first time and grew up with them. Even when the band hasn't been a thing for 40 years, it's all still there. It happened and it impacted your life positively where you can literally say "this band may not have literally saved my life, but they have helped me see things through and given me what I needed to save my own life". Which is my case. I just don't like when people say a band saved their life because it didn't. We save ourselves.

 

Either way, this silhouette is a symbol of protection and progress which I could appreciate whether I listened to them or not. It was tied with a few other options the past few months but this was the only one that stuck and whatever my feelings toward that band are, it's a symbol that I will never forget how much that band has done for me and for a ton of other people in the past.

 

It won't bother me at all if people who don't listen to the band don't understand it, because it's my story and not theirs and that means more to me than let's say, the people who get a generic pattern just cause they think a Chinese dragon or flames sleeve would look cool as hell on their arm.

Enjoy your new ink.
