You should get a tat of Van Camp's Pork and Beans on your lower back.

The design you have is pretty straightforward, but line work is HARD. It’ll be easier for the artist b/c you have a complete design that can be stenciled, as opposed to freehanding it all, which will help. Having said that, now you know what to look for in his/her portfolio—you want to see line work that is consistent (i.e. no part of the line is thicker than another part), and STRAIGHT.

...and that pork & beans stuff: I just can’t. 8O

Some good advice. I went to their Facebook page and found two artists who can do what I want.

I got "shalom" שלום on my left arm on the anniversary of the accident that nearly killed me. It's at roughly heart level.

Everyone’s pain tolerance is different, obviously, but IMO, it doesn’t hurt much. Probably the easiest place to get a tattoo (i.e. least pain) is the upper arm, so you should be fine—I sat for 12-13 hours (with normal stretch/bathroom/eat breaks) for the shepherd in the pic below (detail shading takes a long time) and it wasn’t a big deal. It’s when you start tattooing places that bend (wrist, elbow...) that it starts to hurt. ;)

I think the sitting still part will suck the most.

First? Nice! In that case, I have a pocket full of .02 for you, LOL...

A few things to consider:
-readability—you should know what it is from a cross the room—in general, bigger tends to be better in this regard, and the smaller a tattoo is, the longer it will take if it has detail (like a compass). If you have ANY thought whatsoever about getting more or adding to it to create a half sleeve or something, begin with the end in mind...
-Search get on instagram and search for “compass tattoo” hashtags—there will be a lot of results—use that to give you an idea of the range of possibilities and quality
-What’s the closest big city to where you live? That’s probably where you’re going to end up unless money is no obstacle, in which case you’re going to want to get on someone’s waiting list...
-speaking of waiting lists... expect to have to book your appointment at least 3 months in advance. NEVER walk into a shop and get a tattoo that day. Every decent artist I know of has a backlog; many very excellent artists close their books and only open them a couple of times a year. The artist I have worked with (Manny Abadi at West Loop Tattoo Collective in Chicago) books 3-4 months out; Josh Grable, who owns the studio, books 8 or more months out
-Find someone who ONLY does what you want (i.e. color or black and gray)—probably 85% of top tier artists only do one or the other
-Save money until you can afford a really great tattoo—they’re permanent ;) I don’t mean to sound pretentious, but the art on my left arm cost more than I paid for my car. You should probably expect to pay $500 or so for what you’re describing.
Good luck! Welcome to your new addiction :)
Yeah. All of this. Don't settle. Really, don't settle for cheap. Find an artist, review his / her work.
Make sure the image you get is the best / what you really want. If you have to save, then save.

And that right there is the reason the minimum age for a tattoo should be 45 years.

The boy decided to use me as his canvass after we discussed the merits and demerits of getting a tattoo. He waited to violate me until I took a nap. That's sharpie, so it was semi-permanent. Can you tell what movie we were going to watch later? :lol:
