Default Can't stick with one tattoo?

Hello, I really want a new tattoo, but I have some inner fear that I will regret it later on. I have this fear since my last tattoo that I can't stand now. Do you guys have any ideas how to stick with one design and like it? Every design I pick, no matter how I like it, I start asking myself if I really want it...

Then you are not ready for a tattoo. There is no rush

Use the image you want as a tattoo as your screensaver on your phone for at least a month. If you get bored looking at it, then you will get bored of it as a tattoo.

Haha yes, I do this and the pic grows on me and gets me even more excited as time goes on. Every tattoo I've had since joining here has come out better than I could've imagined. Lots of research and creative freedom to the artist.

yeah, asi have grown older, i have realised that some of my tattoo choices were not the best when i was younger, and i was planning on getting a few gaming themed tatoos about 6 months back, i had a bit of a word with myself and am still debating whether to get them done or not, which basically means i am not ready to get them done yet

This is a really nice trick! Actually have the same phone background since a couple of years but wouldn't want to get it as a tattoo.

Personally I also think that there should be no doubt about the tattoo (even over a long period of time). I don't want to rush it either.

It really helps me having the image or reference I want as my screensaver
