My First tattoo! by Sparegrisen My First tattoo! by Sparegrisen
My first tattoo, got it yesterday! It hurt a bit, but I really think it's worth it! I really like how he made it look so awesome. 

As for the story, the reason why I wanted to get a tattoo like this.

I've ALWAYS been into music, not just loving music as singing and listening to a song, but playing as well. I'm not good with strings, so when I first tried guitar, bass, etc
 it didn't go very well x) I remember my dad used to conduct the local brass band in our town, and there were times he'd bring me along, give me a cornet, tell me to go in the hallway and play, and I did. So from that time he would keep bringing m,e and when I was old enough to start in the brass band myself, i was so happy and excited. At that time I was 8, and I've been playing since.

I played the cornet for five years, then I got a horn for two years, and then the coolest thing of all, trombone. I played trombone for one year, until i had to play the tuba the year after. This year I've been back on my trombone though, I got my own last year for Christmas. 

I've always LOVED playing in the brass band, and recently, I've started to play in an orchestra as well! It's so much fun, and I've never had the thought of quitting. Music is basically everything to me, and my passion for Brass Bands and Orchestras complete it. Since I started in a Brass band, we don't use the bass clef, but the treble clef, and I wanted to have something that means so much to me as my music, so it had to be the treble clef.

Most first tattoos are disappointing and lame; they're ill-thought and unsure of what to get and it usually is done by a place that's hack-average at best and the initial stab always hurts more than it should and the end result lacks anything you'd hoped or dreamed of...

With that being said...

I absolutely love this design. Crisp lines. Clean and defined. Distinguishable and solid. I love the chunky lines and comic-feeling that it gives off. Like Battlechasers art. <3

Excellent selection for a first-timer. ;B

The tattooist was pretty good looking, so i managed to survive it all! haha xD

and Ooo, where and what were you planning?
As for me, my best advice would be for you to truly think out what you want, because in my opinion, if someone wants to get a tattoo, I feel like there should be a reason to why you wanted it, because it's giving you a mark for life you know. So, Think through what you want, go get it at someone who knows what they're doing regardless of the money, love it, and don't regret it! :happybounce:

I haven't decided where but I know what I want. I want something with a treble clef and bass clef. I'm still thinking about I want it to look.
