This type of tattoo is usually done in the beginning of the new academic year. In tattoo parlance, this tattoo means that the new student takes new classes and starts working in his/her new field. The tattoo is designed for the specific student and must be of appropriate size and style so that the new student can keep his/her balance.
Is this a tattoo of the student? In most cases, this is a tattoo of the student and does not mean tattooing any other area of the student’s body.
Do I need to bring a tattoo artist to work on this tattoo? The type of tattoo you get is entirely up to you. Some have suggested that a tattoo artist is necessary but that is not always the case.

May I get a tattoo? Yes, most tattoo shops are usually open during this time to accommodate new students and to offer custom designs and designs of your choosing.

Do I have to call in and meet with a tattoo artist? Most tattoo shops provide private appointments to you. You can find out more about private appointments from your tattoo shop.
Who will provide the tattoo? Every tattoo shop is different so it is up to YOU decide this. In most cases, it is best to have a friend or a therapist assist you.
Can I get an adult to do the tattoo? Yes. Some tattoo shop and therapists may make exceptions for that, but usually you will need to make an appointment beforehand.
