Remember, as you age your body is going to change and as it changes so does your skin. The Tat you get today is definitely not going to look the same twenty years from now. If you go to the gym, you will need to go to the gym. If you're a guy and you stop those firm pecs of yours are going to turn into saggy man boobs. Think of this before you have some sort of massive breast plate inked onto your chest. The same thing is true for girls. I once worked with an eighteen year old girl who was a little on the chubby side. She got herself a tramp stamp...a really big, tramp stamp. Two months later she was 5 pounds heavier (she ate a lot of donuts) so uncouth me told her she needed to watch her diet other wise "ten years from now that stamp's going to be hanging down over your ass." She was not at all appreciative.

If you're a rock start you can get as many Tats as you want because you can afford it. If you're not a rock start you're going to stand out in the crowd.
If you need to get inked, my recommendation is to practice discretion. Think about how your body is going to look twenty or thirty years from now. Remember, pretty colors fade and dark indigo remains and touching up can get expensive. Most important, this is a trendy thing which is happening and unlike trendy hair styles (mullet or Mohawk?) which grow back, a Tat is going to stick around for a long, long time. Getting them removed is very, very expensive.
