    Yeah i think you where reading non-existant sub text.

    Like I said finger ring is 3 years old now, inside is lighter but still there. The other bonus is it reads like a ring not a hand tattoo to norms. If you want to get something like this done find someone that does palms, if they can do a palm they can make it stick.

    for starters tattoos on the fingers dont stick that good. Top stays ok but the rest fades, and laser removal is cheap. If you are worried about getting the tattoo removed if you divorce why bother being married at all.

    It is not that it is in all cases incorrect but it changes the meaning. Descending vs climbing.

    My take on it wasn’t hard and fast rules more....etiquette? You would ask or expect someone who hadn’t tattooed you before to go straight in to visible locations (hands, face etc). It’s like an earning of trust or establishing a relationship sort of thing.

    No not really, at least in western tattooing there where certain things you got for specific accomplishments. This whole idea of trust or relationship with the artist are all relatively new ideas. In the old days most tattooers did it as a second/side job. OR where carnies, sailors or tramps. Tattooing on the weekends or on pay day. The mentality was mostly "pick some flash, give me that money and get out."

    If you want to talk about placement on the body and meaning and the like you would need to look at tribal tattooing. Like what you see in the Philippines or asian pacific Ex: Samoa, tonga etc.

    Again this may be a thing where he is from but that is not uniform for the old days in general. I will say this comes from an American perspective on traditional tattooing, but an informed one.
