Before I start, just a disclaimer that I don't think this is a real "problem" per se, just something to think about.
I've never been really big into tattoos. I have always said that whatever tattoos I get need to be able to be covered by my dress on my wedding day because I am not going to be an inked up bride.
But shortly before the superbowl, I took a good friend to get a tattoo that she'd been saying she would get for some time. Then 2 weekends ago, while my best friend was visiting for the weekend, I also took her to get a tattoo. Both friends got their tattoos on their rib cage. I thought this was really attractive and it gave me ink envy.
I got my first tattoo when I was 18. It is the Tarheel foot on my foot, for the university I attended. I got this with pride as I was the first in my family to attend/graduate from a 4 year program. Thankfully it is on my foot so it didn't stretch with weight gain/loss. So this was my delimma... I wanted another tattoo but it was very hard to think of a place to get one that the skin wouldn't change too drastically with weight loss and wouldn't be stretched out of shape with any lift I might want one day. And could also be hidden while wearing a strapless top/dress.
I really wanted the rib tattoo, but I knew a lower body lift would stretch all that skin out in a way I can't even imagine what a tattoo there would look like afterward.
So I finally decided on the back of my neck. I got lyrics from my favorite band (Shiny Toy Guns) and it is from a song that reminds me of a friend who passed away last year. Here's a pic:
