How Do I Know If I Want A Tattoo?

So you are influenced by the surroundings and start to think about whether to get a tattoo or not. The reason varies. So if you’re not sure or hesitate about your decision, you probably need to read the content below to pin down.

Our principle suggested to you is that you actually need a tattoo because it does have the very meaning you want and you really appreciate it, or you have some similar reasons. And the idea should not be inspired due to the popularization of tattoo. The not so good (because it may cause regret in the future) reasons can be listed below:

You want a tattoo temporarily due to some reasons.

You want to be fashionable and just satisfy vanity.

You just come across some tattoo designs and thought it cool.

You want it again because you wanted it at the past, but a few days later the feeling will disappear again.

You want it because everyone surrounded has a tattoo but you don’t.

Other external causes like above.

If you have any reason like these or similar thoughts, we strongly suggest that you need to carefully think about it because many people nowadays are very regretful about their tattoos due to these reasons:

The tattoos are outdated.

The tattoos are related to ex.

People want to hide it for jobs and things.

The tattoo design is not as beautiful as others’.

It’s not unique any more.

The tattoo fades.

The tattoo starts to cause health problems like infection.

Tattoo removal costs considerable money and leaves scars.

So if you decide to continue you really need to consider these problems you’ll face in the future. Listing these problems doesn’t mean that we try to stop you getting a tattoo but make you clear about it and help you make a right decision about your first tattoo. If you have wanted a tattoo for years and the thought occupies your brain all the time, then it’s a good sign that you must have good and strong reasons to get it.

If you finally make a decision then you need to do some research on a customized tattoo with some sort of meaning, which can be best represented by using different Polynesian tattoo symbols. There’re varieties of branches in tattoo world (Polynesian tattoo is just one of them) and each branch has plenty of cool, beautiful and meaningful designs. So just don’t be in a hurry. Calm down and ask for some good suggestions.


  1. Hello, I would love a Polynesian style tribal having to figure out symbols that I would like to have is the key. Since, all Polynesian tattoos symbolize very deep and meaningful concepts of human life and death. I would like one to symbolize my life as a soldier a son and a brother. Would you help me identify tattoos that express this or find me an example with this symbolism within a piece? You’re time and response is much appreciated.

    • Hi Mal,
      I’m also a newbie on this and just offered information I’ve learned. I’m not a artist nor a expert. You may refer to the artist page to contact those artists. Those artists are collected mainly from internet business pages.

      And if anyone could help Mal, please leave a comment or email me and I’ll forward the mail to Mal.

  2. I really want to get a polynesian tribal tatoo around my left bicep symbolizing fatherhood, integrity, a son, a man, confidence, and wisdom. I like abstracts and a dark bold color like black. Any suggestions?

    • That’s complicated. You need to talk with a skillful Polynesian tattoo artist and draw an unique design just for you.
