Re: I want a nautical tattoo :)

I got my first tat in Cozumel, Mexico when I went with my wife to get second peircings in her ears. She, being very pragmatic, suggested a small shark on my left wrist where it could be covered by my watch when I was at work (accountant). The kid that did it looked to be about 12 years old.

Next one a few years later was in Rarotonga, Cook Islands. It was a full foot and ankle piece depicting Cyclone Ita which we went through on the island. A beautifully tatooed Maori fellow did it.

Last one was done in Santa Barbara, CA. It covers my right forearm and shows a large seashell surrounded by a big sunshine which my late wife's signature on it. It is a memorial to her life's passion of walking the beaches and searching for sea shells.

In my case they are permanent reminders of permanent feelings. Go for it.
