I was thinking about getting a tattoo. I've wanted the same tattoo on the same part of my body since I was 13 (so... 6 years). The only thing holding me back is that I'm afraid that, 30 years down the road, I might regret it. It's nothing insane- just a little cartoon shooting star about 3/4s the size of my thumb. I just don't really have a special meaning for it. I just want it.
I'm thinking about going to a tattoo parlor, getting a sketch done, taking it home for a few months, and then deciding whether or not to get it.
Do they allow you to do that, or is it a "we draw, you buy" system?
