I got my first tattoo at age 30 after making myself wait 7 years to BE SURE (that whole permanence thing and all..). For my 30th birthday, I celebrated by gifting myself said tattoo (5 colors, taking nearly 3 hours to complete). I learned a great lesson in delayed gratification and I highly recommend it!
UPDATE: I got my second, third, and fourth (smaller) tattoos for my 40th birthday and I waited 10 years for them! I’m already thinking about a fifth one and I won’t be waiting 7-10 years this time! 😉
UPDATE 2: I didn’t wait 7-10 years for #5. That came in March 2018. Yes, there are plans for more. Stay tuned…🤔
