My mother recently made a tattoo(she's a nurse) and asked me if I want to have one - I said yes and I really want it, but the problem is - right now at least I want to be a lawyer(or a prosecutor) when I finish school/university. Is it very risky if I make a tattoo? I wanted to have it on my upper back and it would be somewhere between 10 inches long and ~1.5 inches tall.
If you can cover it up then it shouldn't be a problem ... as a fanatic for the tattoo and body mod community I would suggest not doing it for a year, simply because if you don't want it in a year then you saved yourself some heartache and if you do still desire it then you'll be less likely to regret it...
Remember tattooing is a Permanent body modification, you have the Possibility to remove the ink but where that was you may still have scars
(Hope that helps! Make an informed decision (= )

I will never get why anyone (other than drunks) wish to get tattoos...female skin is awesome and most males revere it...why would you want to disfigure yourself permanently? Put on a temporary tattoo...speaking from my age---> there is NOTHING that you will be that enamored with for your entire lifetime, so why "brand" yourself?...That is why I always tell girls on here not to tie their tubes or laser their pubes...your whole outlook on life will be different in 15 or 20 years...just don't do anything that is irreversible and that you might bitterly regret later..o.O
If you get a tattoo make sure that you can cover it up with ease. You don't want to get something that can be seen through your shirt if you take of your jacket unless you can cover it with surgical tape or make up. don't get anything on your legs or arms if you do not plan on wearing long sleeves or pants in the summer time heat.
