What's your opinion.

I'll be 25 next year and that means I'll have ha the exact same idea for a tattoo for 10 years.

My idea is not original at all.

I want a horse head on my right hip no halter etc mane flowing in the wind. Only an outline in a brown tone.

To me horses are the ideal depiction of 4 values
Strength ( mostly emotional)

The hip is an area I can show off easily but will be covered most of the time. It will not show in ball gowns or any clothes i'd be wearing to work (future primary teacher). For that matter barely any clothes day to day!

So what's your take on them?

Is this a crazy idea?

Go for it! You only live one time, so do whatever makes you happy! I turned 18 like three years ago and i went down and got my first tattoo. Its on my back and it goes from shoulder to shoulder and takes up a good portion of my upper back. No one can see it but if i wear a swimsuit or tube top, you can see it and I loooove it!
It hurts to get tatted, however, its a pain that you can stand and will probably want again after your first sounds crazy but you will see what i mean :)
Good luck with whatever your decision is!!

Im 23 and have 8 tattoos now. All of them are small besides my newest one that covers half my back and still isnt finished. Just some more shading to do but after 4 hours I was done!

I only have one that is visible most of the time and its on my forearm. Sometimes it bugs me because when people meet me its usually the first thing that they look at but oh well. I love the tattoo.

The horse sounds beautiful and as long as you have been thinking about it for that long, Id get it. I had the picture printed of the one I just got on my back and kept it in my desk and it was on my phone. Thought about it for a year and finally decided to get it and LOVE it.

I think it would be beautiful. :) Sounds like you've put a lot of thought into it, and if you still want it after a decade, go for it.

Go for it :) But I would advise against the hip area because of stretching. If you were ever to get pregnant/had surgery/etc., the horse would no longer be a horse. Just my opinion, though. Get it where you want it :)

Sporthorse that's a Really good point! Hmmm got me thinking now.

I second going to a really good artist. Way too many folks have tatoos that are plain black and white, no artistry to them. Sit down with them and design it, ask them about the stretching issue. Just remember to use the sunscreen-otherwise the colors fade.
Here is an example. This is the guy I go to......unfortunately no horses, tho......just a fabulous artist.

Keep in mind that certain areas are also more painful to have done. Some of the pics in his gallery are my kids, actually. Find someone who does animals well, also. They all have certain things they do best.

Hi! I recently got my first tatt. Upper arm. Almost half sleeve of Our lady of San Juan de los Lagos. It is a work of art and I love it. U should go for it. U will love looking at it. A great tatt artist is a must. I saw a lot of so so and bad ones at convention at Harley d. Museum. Good luck and truly embrace it!
