I am getting my first tattoo designed. I always said if I got a tattoo that it would be something to do with my kids. So I am planning on having my tattoo be a rose vine up my leg (approx. 24 inches long) with each of my children ( we have 8) having their own rose and then roses at the top for me and SO. The banner will have the family name in it. I will show you a very rough draft of it. My question is...Should I start with a smaller tattoo to be my first? I was told that it would be hours of sitting and take more than one sitting. My problem is I don't want another tattoo. This is the only tattoo I plan on getting. Any input would be nice. :) Thanks.
I see a lot of the same concerns about the artist. My SO has severral tattoos and some verry intricate. I will be using the same artist he uses since I have seen and really like his work. Once I have the design done then I will see about cost. I know it may be pricy but in the end well worth it. :)
**Update**-This is the lay out of what the tattoo will look like.
