In case of making a tatoo one Russian proverb comes very handy. The proverb we are talking about is " you must measure seven times before you start cutting", in English there are also plenty of alike, " score twice before you cut once", for example, though in Russian language they warn to think seven times before acting. That's especially important in regard of tatoo, to consider the good artist with big experience and rich portfolio.
Well, still some find it easier not to think seven times. Now their tatoos cause lot of laughs when are seen by someone for the first time.
