I have three! I love them and are expressions of me. In all honesty there will be people everyday (JOE) lol, that look down on you for them and say "Wow! How can you do that to yourself?!" I've learned to deal with it. You either accept me, tattoos and all or you leave me be. I had a friends mom talk to me perfectly fine, then I took my jacket off and she hasn't talked to me since...It just comes with having tattoos. I've never been turned down for a job or anything because of them. Some have asked to have them covered but have become more lax as time went on.
I have a phoenix and peony on my chest/shoulder/back. Also, a realism bird on the left side of my chest under my collar bone, says "What's done is done." Then I have the outline of a horse on my wrist.
I say go for it, make it meaningful, you'll love them and will be addicted. Like others have said though go to a GOOD artist. I've had to have my wrist one touched up three times, because it's always rubbing on everything and fades. My artist though does free touchups for life and he always laughs when he sees me now, asking if a horse tried to lick it off. The more $$$ they cost, the better they usually look and the longer they last when they use better ink. (:
