    It’s understandable to be a little nervous or apprehensive if you’re going to get your first tattoo. However, if your nerves are more than a minor thing then you may want to wait a little longer before going through with getting a tattoo. Second thoughts or reoccurring doubts are an indicator that something isn’t right, perhaps you’re not comfortable with the chosen design. If doubts persist go talk to your artist or just wait a month or two more, you don’t want to do something you’re going to regret.
