I'm getting my first tattoo, finally! I have some spare cash and I've been wanting to do it for a long time and I have a design picked and everything! I'm definitely getting a hummingbird, and I'm trying to decide where to get it still... I'm thinking behind my right ear, on my upper back between my shoulder blades (like lower neck/upper back) or my right shoulder. If anyone has thoughts on that, I'd love to hear them! Also, is it normal to go in with a design but ask for your artist's opinion before deciding on placement?

I'd also love any general advice anyone might have!! ALSO does anyone know any good places to get it done in Philly? Some friends have gone to No Ka Oi Tikki Tattoo on South Street and liked it, so that's my current plan, but I'm flexible!

Guys I'm so excited but also so terrified - help!!
