Hi guys. As most of you know, I am 15 and want to get a tattoo when I turn 18. I don't want to get one to be cool or anything but I just want to get one because it has been a tradition in my family and I want to get one that is meaningful. I am thinking possibly a wicked cross design on the bottom of my wrist. The thing is, I am kinda scared of needles, and was told it hurt a lot to get a tattoo. I was also told that I can be mistaken for a gang member and not get a job... To someone who has gotten a tattoo before, how much does it hurt? PS - I don't plan on just going to a random tattoo parlor, I plan on doing some research a bit before I get something I will live with for the rest of my life.
