1 Can You Show Them at Your Job?

If your job doesn't allow tattoos to be visible, then make sure you get your ink in a spot you can cover. Try getting it on your back or waist instead of on your wrist or forearm.

2 Did Someone You Love Pass Away?

You want your tattoos to be meaningful, and what's more meaningful than a tattoo that represents a deceased loved one?

3 What Means the Most to You in Life?

Get a tattoo that represents your passion in life. If you love to sing, get music notes or song lyrics tattooed onto you.

4 Do You Want Others to See It?

If you want it to be visible, make sure you put it in a spot that your clothing won't constantly cover. If you want to show it off, you don't want your ink on the inside of your lip or the back of your neck.

5 Do You Want It to Be Sexy or Classy?

If you want it to be sexy, try getting it on your lower back or beneath your breasts. If you want it to be classy, try getting one on your wrist or behind your ear.

6 Do Your Parents Approve?

If you still live with them, you might want to wait a while to get your tattoo. Otherwise, do as you'd like, because it's your body.

7 How High is Your Pain Tolerance?

If you can't stand much pain, you should probably get a smaller tattoo. Don't get one that covers your entire arm.

8 What Tattoos do You like on Others?

If you love your friend's tattoos, then try to get one that's similar. You can even ask her who her tattoo artist is, so you can get a similar art style done.

9 What Colors do You like?

Some people prefer to have plain black tattoos and others prefer to have colorful ones. Decide which type you like better.

10 Do You Have Time to Think It over?

If you don't, then don't get the tattoo. Don't risk getting something you'd regret.

11 Do You Know Any Good Tattoo Artists?

Different artists will draw the same idea in totally different ways. That's why you need to do your research to find the artist that fits your needs the best.

12 Do You Have Acne?

If you have a lot of acne on your back, your artist might have trouble putting your tattoo there. You should try to clear up the area first.

13 Do You Want It to Look Feminine?

If you do, then make sure you get the writing done in a particular way. Some things look more feminine and others look more masculine.

14 Do You Care if Other People Have the Same Tattoo?
If you want your tattoo to be unique, you probably shouldn't get an anchor or an infinity tattoo--unless, of course, you put a twist on the idea.

15 What Body Part is the Most Attractive?

If you love your legs, and want to draw attention to them, then get your tattoo there.

16 What Type of Art Style do You like?

If you want a penguin tattoo, you can either get a realistic drawing or a cartoon version. Figure out what you like the most before you go and get it done.

17 What do You Actually Want?

At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you love your tattoo. So ask yourself what you really want?

If you're going to get some new ink, make sure you know exactly what you want before you book your appointment. What tattoo have you been thinking about getting?
