First Tattoo

Thinking of getting a Tattoo for my birthday.  I am a bit old for a first Tattoo.  I do not know anyone my age that has a Tattoo, so in some ways it seems a bit odd.

I am not sure what my motivation is.  I do know that there are some stained glass patterns that make me very happy when I see them.  I like the geometry and simplicity.  It occurred to me that it would be nice to see something like that on my wrist.

I am not sure how one goes about doing this.  I have not seen too many examples that hit the mark.  Perhaps if I provide some examples of what I am thinking a Tattoo artist may be able to guide me through the process.

I am thinking of something 1.5″x3″ on the inside of my wrist/forearm.

Here are some images I find compelling.

Tree of Life, Frank Lloyd Wright, 1904.

I find the geometry and line weight of these Tattoos pretty amazing:
