Tattoo or no tattoo?

I don’t have any tattoos. I’m quite an indecisive person and I’ve never found a design that I love enough to have on my body for the rest of my life. The way I see it, a tattoo is split into two decisions:

1. What design do I get?
2. Where do I get it on my body?

Just when I decide where I might like one, I keep thinking ‘ah, I don’t know’ and I figure if I’m alreay questioning it now, will i regret it? Will it still mean as much to me later in life?

Now I’m sitting here in Kenya and oh-so-tempted to get a tattoo! What is it about being in a new country and thinking ‘yeah I’ll get a tattoo!’?

For me, I think it took so much courage to quit my job, change my life and come here to Kenya by myself that i want something to literally mark the event. 

I don’t regret my decision to come here, so if I had a tattoo in honour of the trip, why would I regret that?

Has anyone else had a tattoo while they’re away? What did you get and why?
