To Tattoo or Not to Tattoo?

Okay, I admit. I've been thinking about hurting myself recently.
But no, not what you're thinking.
A tattoo. I've been toying with that idea for 2 years.
Partially because I'm stupid enough to think they look cool.
Partially because I want to break the preconceived notion that all doctors are nerdy goody-goody-two-shoes types. And partially to remind myself of the strength that lies within, something I sometimes forget in bad times.
And while my dermatology (and other sane friends) tell me to not go for it, this one psychiatrist friend of mine who's had 4 tattoos already is really pushing me to go for it. She even showed me the tattoo of a sun on her left boob.
I figured if I ever get one, it will be on my right arm. So, Let me know what you think.
(And no, I haven't yet committed to having one done.)

I would think the no3 fits better if you put it on your forearm, so it gonna be like a free advertisement.
:),only then people will know lor..

I guess you might have seen people who tattooed their knuckles, one side LOVE, the other HATE. Ever thought of doing that? :D

Been reading your blog for a while... niceeeeee.

AS long as you can live with this for the rest of your life, I see nothing wrong. no.3 is a bad choice 20 year down the road.

Tattoo away's what i say... just as long as you make its somewhere where it's can be easily hidden. Not everyone is as accepting of a tattoo as you are.

But i don't think dragon's a good idea either.. too scary.. i personally like micky mouse.

I just came across your blog by accident but this looks very interesting...

no3 shouldn't last long, unless you are planning on zero commitment for life.
