Oh! Very nice! Where would you get it?

I've been leaning towards getting a seahorse tattoo myself, but I haven't figured out what I want to do with it yet.

   No I wouldn't have a tattoo,I think that when you start most don't know when to stop.It's bad enough with all these pop star & footballers haveing them,but it's not very nice when you see  women of a certain age who are a bit on the big side and are not content with one that can't be seen,but go over the top.

  Sorry but i'm alady of that certain age who just dislike's seeing a women covered in tatts (that's what I have hearedthem being called)

Don't feel bad Sue, I too am a woman of that age.  A few years ago I debated about a butterfly tat on my shoulder with a scripture verse about being a new creature in Christ.  I decided new creatures did not belong on my old body! LOL

Well I'm older than both of you but I don't restrict myself to not liking tattoos on women. I don't like their appearance on anybody.
However, people like me seem to be in the minority now as we're all dying off.
Each has the right to do with their body as they wish though, and if they don't mind the fact the tattoos won't look the same when they get older then it's up to them.
I'm glad I'm a way past going to the beach each weekend now, as I think it would be a horrendous sight to most of my age.

   Ray, Its more of a thing with me,when you see young lady with a small tattoo on her foot or the top of the arm then thats not so bad,but when you get the larger lady with tattoo's on their arms ect,do they think they look good or what their children think of them(I know what my kids would say).

   Sorry I don't mean to offend anyone who has them,but its bad enough seeing the men covered in them.

You can thank us Gen-Xers for that. :) It's definitely been normalized in my lifetime. When I was young just entering the working world, someone would have to cover up a tattoo. When I got my tattoo in my mid-twenties, it was so so, some places made a big deal about it, others didn't. Now, I forget I even have it until someone mentions it. I'm considering a second one, but haven't figured out exactly what I want yet.

My suspicion is that most people with tattoos will barely notice them as they age. I just don't think about it anymore, other than the occasional "I should really get this re-inked". And I had it done 15 years ago. When I'm in my Senior years, I doubt I'll think much about it then.

I do have a rule about tattoos though. Once I know what I want, I have to think about it for a full year before actually committing to it. Which is why I only have one right now. I've had a few others in mind, but after the year was out, decided it wasn't what I wanted.

I'm fairly certain I'll be getting a seahorse tattoo at some point. I just haven't decided on the style or location. So, someday.

Shasta, I say if you like it, go for it. You only live once!

I have acctualy three tattoos already, I put them in places where if I would get old and saggy they are not going to sag.. One is on my shoulder blade, one on my upper bicept shoulder, the other is on my hand. I dont plan on getting covered as that is rather unattractive. All of my tattoos are artwork I have drawn myself so I feel a bit odd getting someone elses art on me. At the same time, I do have the perfect place for it and I do love it even if it wasnt drawn by me.  Yes Sue I understand about older people getting tats...there are some places a woman should NEVER get a tattoo... the breast being one of them. I worked in a nurseing home and saw a tat on a lady, looked like a catapillar... she told me she didnt get it since when does a butterfly revert back into one. yea carefuly placed...NOT.

The design looks nice. Sort of like an H. Abdominalis. At least you have the option of getting one right now. I'm still in the Army after 23 years and heading toward retirement in 2016. One of the reasons I have started breeding seahorses again. Unfortunately, the Army rules on tattoos are pretty strict right now so I will have to wait until 2016 to even consider one.

 Your design looks good. I've got some really large pieces on myself. Some cover ups also. Do I regret them, yes. My regreat is not waiting till I was older .young and dumb was my first mistake.  But I still like tattoos if they look good. And some women look good  with the right tattoos. This not mine but a cool tattoo.

I won't say much on this. you see I have 5 tattoos spanning from the mid 80s till 2005.
so if it's something you really like and have thought about go for it.
Just one thing to remember out tats. There are two types of people with tats. the person that gets one and never wants to go through it again  and the person that's addicted to them. for some people it's a addiction like anything else.

 I would have 20 or 30 more by now if I didn't stop my self .
