Howdy; Been a long time since I was around here... Good news, got a damn laptop :D Anyhow, hey guys, nice to see ya, bla bla, let's get to the point: I've been thinkin' since a few months, and I'm very interested on gettin' a tattoo; Just something nice to look nice. My brother is an experienced tattoo'ist, so I'm asking him to make it... So I can save a few bucks too. So, the thing is that I want some advice, tips and thougths; I've been thinking on gettin' it on my arm (Any of 'em), below the shoulder, classy'. Either a howling wolf or a Coyote or a Chilean flag; Or maybe mixin' them. Anyhow, if anyone has any idea, please share. Thanks, au revoir.

Nothing you can't cover up with a t-shirt, no writing, if you do go with writing nothing in a language you don't understand, no insignia or flags. That'd be my thoughts if I were going to get a tattoo, anyway.
Getting a tattoo that is visible with clothes on is a quick but painful way to destroy a future career, so think twice about putting it on your arm. In addition to that a tattoo of a flag is an excellent way to forever mark yourself as a nationalist idiot, so forget that.
I suppose you find wolves and coyotes cute, but do they have any other meaning to you? Just randomly choosing something would be rather foolish.
As I see, you guys ain't much of tattoo sympathysers - Heh...
Anyhow, I thought on that specific spot because it's easy to cover up, I allways use shirt and most of the time blazer or suit, don't know if you agree with me.
And some part of me, yes, finds coyotes extremly cute due to their nature of stealth hunting, aggresivity, teamship or whatever its called... I sometimes try to identify myself as one; About the flag, I thought just on remembering my roots, even though I'm swedish born, my blood is fully Chilean, even if its full of crap...
I didn't make it!
Personally, I don't like tattoos and would never get one, but I won't tell you not to go through with this. It's not my place to do so. You are the owner of your body. Therefore, the choice is entirely yours to make. Do what you please, but take plenty of time to think about all pros and cons before doing it. Don't do something you might end up regreating one day. Sure, tattoos can be removed, but taking some time to think what you really want and if you really want it might spare you from enduring unnecessary pain. Twice, if one day you decide to remove it for some reason.
Yeah, that's mainly why I posted here... What are the possible problems with gettin' a tattoo?

Tattoos are foreign objects(pigments) in skin. Skin can change over time. What was suggested to some of my classmates in high school was buying Sharpies or Magic Markers, inking their "tattoo" in (and updating it as often as it needed), and seeing if they still liked the design after six months/a year/(insert period of time long enough to hopefully impart some wisdom). If this level of maintenance is too much for you, then you shouldn't get a tattoo. Granted, once a tattoo is finished, it's maintenance free, but making sure it doesn't get infected, and the amount of time it might take to complete a large tattoo, require a certain amount of dedication.
Flag tattoos can get you in trouble if your country isn't popular or if they update the flag, and Chile's flag might also get you mistaken for a Texan ;)
A coyote or wolf might look good, but also could be very cheesy and if poorly done will be doing you no favors. Be absolutely certain of what you want to do before you do something that'll require acid or lasers to cover up*.
*Oddly enough, this sentence applies to homicides, too!
The only tattoo I would consider would be "Mom" on my bicep.
have one on my shoulder blade, and as others have said id recommend getting it on a place you can cover it up. Also as i said with my brother and what i did, sleep on it. If you still like the design months later then go for it.
