When a tattoo has a personal meaning associated with life and experience, it will be more difficult to get tired of it. It is clear that if the tattoo represents a moment or experience in our life, it is important that it is an event that we want to remember: seeing a tattoo associated with unpleasant memories on your body would be like inflicting a painful scar on yourself. In fact, it takes on an emotional value that is part of us. Obviously, no one forbids you to get tattooed, which is just beautiful, but the risk of getting bored after a while or after the fashion has passed is not far off!
It goes without saying that in order to find a meaningful tattoo, you also need to "look for" it. Do a lot of research and compare multiple sources to really understand the meaning of the tattoo you would like to get yourself.
2. Customize the tattoo to be original.
There are tattoos that have now become "clichés": the symbol of infinity, anchor, dream catchers, butterflies, and so on. Or star tattoos can cause epidemics, during which very similar tattoos are collected, to the point that some tattooists refuse to do them.

After all, a tattoo doesn't have to mean anything, but it's important not to regret it once the magic of getting a new tattoo has passed.

Ideally, print several versions with different sizes and run some tests in different body positions: this will make it easier to visualize yourself with the tattoo and see if we really like the design and placement!
