Thinking of getting myself one soon - potentially rhinos related.

Anybody got any sport related? Any regrets? Show em off!

I would recommend you put some serious thought into exactly what you want and go for something unique. Make a note of it and then leave it for a year. If in a year's time it still sounds like a good idea, get it done.

Warrington led 16-2 in Saturday's Grand Final, but their joy was short-lived as Wigan roared back to win the Super League title and extend the Wire's 58-year wait to be champions

A really, really good piece of advice.

I spent years mulling – then had a supposedly 'temp' one that was intended to last about six years. Half had faded in three months, but it gave me the chance to see that I liked having a tat. I then had it redone – properly.

Sixteen years later, I finally got around to having a really serious piece of work done: it's on an upper arm, so I can hide it or not; this is actually worth considering too. This was a really good studio and I worked with the artists to come up with a unique design.

It's not sports related – I'm convinced I'll jinx any team I support if I have a club tat: perhaps I should have a Man U one, then?

The first one has worn badly – it was always a mess, really, done cheaply etc – so I'm now exploring cover-ups, plus one or two other ideas. But from purely personal experience, I'm glad that I took the time and made sure I got something that really works for me.

Taking your time gives you the opportunity to have a serious look at tattoos people have had done on the same theme – and even to ask any friends who are artistic if they have any ideas.

Whatever you decide to do, don't opt for cheap – a good tattoo can cost hundreds, but you have to live with it, so it's worth it. Consider it as a piece of artwork on your skin: do you want a Rembrandt or your local graffiti artist?

Check the work a studio does and, indeed, what work an individual artist does. Not every tattoo artist will be best suited for every subject. Make absolutely sure that a studio is licensed by the council – this helps ensure basic hygiene such as clean needles for each customer.

Get some magazines on the subject, check the internet – and look at styles as well as subjects.

And if you decide to go ahead – then enjoy the experience as well as as the result (drink a sugary drink before a session – it does help :-) ).

I had 8 pint of Stella.
Does that count?
