To ink or not to ink?

I’ve been thinking about getting a new tattoo a lot lately.  I have two already, from my ‘wild’ college years.  Getting a tattoo was something that Chad wanted to do, but couldn’t settle on what & where he wanted it.  I’d like to get inked again, doing something to honor him.

I have what I think is an awesome idea (no, there is no tattooing of names involved) for a simple tattoo that will have meaning for me without being obvious to the rest of the world.  I’m terrified of needles, which is why both of my other tattoos are on my back – I couldn’t see what was going on, but I’m willing to tough it out for this.

My dilemma is this: where do I put it?  I’d like to have it visible to me everyday without having to look in a mirror to see it.  But I also want to be able to hide/disguise it if necessary.  I realize that I will probably interview for a different job at some point in my life.  Do employers really care about tattoos (as long as they’re not vulgar or obscene) anymore?  I really like the idea of putting it on the inside of my left wrist, so anytime I wear anything with short sleeves it will be visible.  I guess I could cover it with a watch band in that location too.

I am still in the thinking stages – no definite decisions have been made yet – so any input is welcome.
