Tattoos are forever, unless you want to engage in an expensive and painful removal process, so be sure you choose something you'll love for years to come. Take your time, scour tattoo parlors, books, magazines and the Internet for ideas. Make an inspiration book and narrow it down from there. Your design doesn't have to have significance -- it can just be something that you think looks cool. When choosing colors, consider what will look best with your skin tone. And don't forget about the price -- the larger and more detailed, the more money you'll part with.
