thanks! and i agree with yngvarr - dont get any "flash" tattoos.. come in with something unique and custom. Always check out the artist portfolio first, try and get a feel for their style. Some artists are very good at black and gray some enjoy doing color... find an artist who seems to suit ur style. ask questions, and be prepared to spend a lot for a good artist... they charge by the hour not by the piece. 150-250 an hour seems to be the rate for quality work. 4-8 hours would be a respectable sit time, my sleeve took more hours then i can remember to complete.




that's not a problem... you want an anime soldier girl, so, what i would do, is find an anime girl i'd like and print several pictures of her in different poses. Bring them with you to the artist, explain that you want this character but with a soldiers look. I dont know what kind of solider you want (real or anime or custom style uniform), but present your ideas clearly, the artist will work with you and decide on the best course. You may have ideas that dont float well when translated to the skin, this is where the artist will guide you and tell you what can and cant be done and what you should do. It also depends on placement on the skin and ur skin tone. He'll take a few days to draw up some sketches and you'll have chances to review them with him/her and decide what you would like to alter according to the artists sketch.

dont be impossible either, you have to work together, you selected the artist that fits your style, so you need to leave them have some creative room to work (it cant be all your vision, you need to team up on it) give them some freedom to design and make your input clear. but i find the more freedom the artist has, the better the work and the more they enjoy it. def find someone who suits what you want.

Hey there! I know how there has been a lot of tattoo posts lately and here is another, I was thinking about getting an anime tattoo however i dont have any tattoos but i have been thinking about getting one for awhile but not sure if i can go through it. Was thinking about getting like a female soldier anime girl on my right shoulder but i cant seem to find anything that will at least give me an idea how how she will look. Anyone know any good sites that have artwork of anime girls (specifically soldiers of course but if not general would be good too) Im not sure what tattoo artists will do anime kinda work too. I have good intentions why i want it, long story short was in army friend introduced me to anime while in army and it helped me out a lot in the stressful environment and i love anime! Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated


I have taken two tattoos already and 2nd one is more of cover up or just enhancement of the old.

Fist thing, like people have said. Something you can cover easily. Mine is on the palm side of left arm below elbow.

Second, because you don't know how ink will react to your skin, choose something simple. Mine was symmetrical small icon of Eight pointed star of Chaos from Warhammer 40k.

Third. Don't try to tattoo a person of any kind. I'd say a emblem, icon or what ever you should call it in English is better choice.

If you really really love any anime or manga, it's character or aspect, get something that reminds you of it. I love Warhammer old world and 40k universe and i collect Chaos marines, so I wanted Chaos star for myself and i'm satisfied.

Friend of mine had her dog put some ink on her pawn and press it on paper which she tattooed on her ankle and later a really small note behind her ear.

My big brother has µ letter tattooed onto his hand between thumb and Index finger.

I guess my point is, tattoo something very very very very important or something really simple and pretty. It's part of you so you don't want to cover it up all the time someone else is near you.

Currently, many girls appreciate the need of a nice tattoo. Since the application of tattoos is not generally accepted by the community, it is quite appropriate to have a small tattoo. A small tattoo can be elegant in display and also, it will not offend anyone. There are a number of small tattoos for girls, which can look great, if you choose the right symbol to apply.

I know this does not always hold true, but for every tattooed doctor or lawyer or CEO, there are probably way more tattooed people who aren't successful.


How do you define success, and on what basis do you apply it as a universal measure for everyone else? The examples you listed have high income as a factor in common; are those the people that you highly respect?

I'm using the standard most people here seem to use. This is not my personal definition of success.

I think success is living a comfortable life while being respected by your peers. You basically have everything you want and need, as well as people around you that you like and who like you in return. I do think income and success are linked more often than not, but income is not the be-all and end-all of a successful life.

However, since people are so varied and differ so greatly when it comes to what they want and expect in a successful life, income is the single most easy thing by which to categorize them. It's probably not 100% accurate, but it's probably the best of the "simple" categories. Money, in a sense, is freedom. It gives you the power to get and do what you want, so it is undoubtedly part of many images of success.

The fact remains that visible tattoos DO negatively affect many employers' perception of a prospective hire's competence and professionalism. That alone makes it harder to land a job. Although other factors, such as speech, experience, and overall personality are also important, I'm not going to pretend that appearance doesn't matter. The ugly truth is that it does. And it SHOULD, since appearance matters to customers and clients. So it should matter to employers. Otherwise, people would be going to their offices in sweatpants. Perhaps the newer generations don't look at tattoos with as much scrutiny, but there are still many people like myself who think tattoos tend to be more meaningless than good.

If you want one, go ahead and get one. But the tattoo itself, as well as its location, can speak about a person's thoughtfulness. If you have a tattoo across your forehead, I'm going to be less likely to take you seriously than if you have a tattoo on your calf.

My advice would be to not get any tattoos after all due to the potential of regretting the ink injected almost permanently into ones skin many years later. Hmm, also I wonder if its copyright infringement to get a n anime tat, lol. That all aside their are some that seem pretty cool though, for example a hollow hole or number like the espada from bleach.
