Re: Do you have a tattoo?
One of my sisters has a tattoo - don't know about the other two. Anyhoo, it's a sort of "barbwire" design that only goes around 2/3rds of her left bicep (she couldn't stand the pain). My Dad, even tho' he was in the Navy for 20 years, never got a tattoo. I ask him why once and his reply was that he didn't need to advertise - IMO there were probably other reasons like pain and infection - but it was a interesting take.
I also agree with Creek about her points - tho' tattoos are becoming more commonplace, it is still looked upon as a fashion no-no. I'd also be vary because your taking this on with a girlfriend. If, if you break up will this tattoo be a reminder of your love for her and how will other women feel about it? I personally wouldn't care but some girlfriends (and for women that have a tattoo done with a certain boyfriend, new boyfriends) have an issue with it.
