Trying to figure out if I should get a tattoo

Ben contemplaiting this for a while, however I don't want just a tatto but not too sure if I even like it, so to make things simple took a photo of my arm and played with photshop and some brushes that I found on the net to have a play, what do you think, it's still early stages not too sure if this is going to be the final design.

Sorry the image is on the large side:

    To small and fiddily and over complicated mate,if it took up the whole upper arm shoulder and was alot bolder it would look ok ish.

    Agree quite a feminine design there

    This is always the danger with tats. 90% of tats on men either look girly, or tacky. There's only a few which manage to tread the fine line between the two

    I have tats (from long ago) and they look tacky. Ah well at least they're not girly eh!

    sorry mate but agreeing with the guys here. Common use of celtic and oriental symbols and far to fine a detail, as the tattoo ages this has a good chance to blur to a smudge.

    Go bolder, try be individual

    Yeh but ill explain why and guss its a good thing.

    You have quite solid looking arms and yr design is quite thin and detailed. Shud maybe look for thicker designs.

    Heres one of mine

    you should really really think before getting a tattoo. just thinking 'i want a tat' rather than 'i want something very specific as a tat' is basically your mind telling you you arent ready.

    Cant agree with this more, dont let the excitement of getting one cloud your vision, you WILL end up regretting it in the long run
