Just carefully select an artist, because you don't want buyers remorse! I have sleeves on both arms and various others. Each and every one has a special meaning to me. I never cared if narrow minded people approved or not.
Hey man I am all for people making their own decisions in life without worrying about others opinions but calling someone narrow minded because they disagree with tattoos or it isn't their "Cup of tea" is rather hypocritical don't you think? Maybe the reason they chose not to get tattoos is the opposite of narrow minded, maybe they actually thought about it deeper than you think and chose not to ink themselves for life. That's called "looking at the big picture"
I almost got sleeves and I knew what I wanted and for what reasons but when I really thought about it , I chose not too, and I am ultra glad I didn't . Will I hate someone if they have tattoos of course not . So choose your words wisely for those who don't share your point of view on life.
