How does it look?

My daughter decided to get a tattoo for her 23rd birthday. Which is cool, that is not the issue.

But when I saw it, I just thought it was not very good looking. Her friend apparently designed it. It is a "tribal cross". I've seen many beautiful tribal tattoos and just find this one kind of bleh. It reminds me of Tetris and Dominoes. I don't know if it is the friend's design or the tattoo artist wasn't that good that is making it so off putting.

Also, she got it on her forearm because she wanted it to be visible all the time so everyone could see it.

Of course it doesn't matter what I think. She's a grown woman and can do what she wants. Just wondering what your impressions on the tattoo is.

Some of her friends actually told her it was ugly. It covers her entire forearm. I hope she won't regret it.

Yikes.

Um. I hope her employers doesn't mind.

And before anyone jumps my ass. I have tattoos. But as a cop lately they have this no visible tat policy. It has overtaken every agency. It has disqualified a lot of good military men and women from law enforcement.

Exactly!! She works in the medical field and I know for a fact you shouldn't have visible tattoos. But she wouldn't listen. She kept saying she didn't want it to be in a place that no one could see. She's not too adept in the art of subtly lol.

Awww, ok. Well she can put a long sleeve under Armour under her scrubs.

We have cops who have to wear long sleeves year round because of their tats.

If it becomes an issue she might have to keep it covered. Unfortunately tattoos are off putting to many

And t hats coming from someone with tattoos, who wants a new side tat!!
