I'll decide for you. DON'T DO IT!! It's permanent. My youngest daughter got one 5 years ago and wishes that she didn't. If you put it in a conspicuous place, it could hurt your chances at lots of jobs. Business owners are not kids and many look negatively upon young people with tatoos. They feel that you would be representing their business in a negative way. Right or wrong, that's the way it is.

jmgg, um, LOL, thanks for concern. I'm 46 yrs. old and already have 1 tat in an inconspicuous place. But I share the same sentiments as you with my own daughter. I told her the same thing, for job reasons, do not put it in a place that you can't cover it up. In fact, we're planning to go get tat's together, she's on her first, I'm on my second. :-)

I would suggest not getting a tat. It's looked at as low class and most hiring managers will pass you up if it's visible. If you are a girl; the lower back tat is known as a sluts mark.

Why do these threads always deteriorate into moral opinions and debates?
Just answer the question, if you don't know the answer don't junk up the thread. She wanted a recommendation for the best tattoo artist, not what to get or where to get it or your misinformation on what a "Tramp Stamp" is called. Let's assume she's going to use her head and know if she needs a job or not and she does'nt care what some random people think about her decision.

Let's hope that IAPonyGirl checked out the cleanliness of the shops, the artist's portfolios and asked reputable people with tattoos in Ames (i.e. not some guy with a prison ink Tasmanian Devil or a sorority girl with a tribal dolphin on her ankle) and made her decision that way.

The first advice is, don't do it (unless you're OK with limiting yourself in the job market). If you OK with putting it somewhere that no one will see it, then the question is, why bother at all?
