Wow. That would be gorgeous. I have a strange obsession with trees. I'm getting a leaf on my wrist Saturday. Post some pics when you get it done.

On my back, like, between my shoulder blades?


That is going to have to be huge to get anywhere near that level of detail. I think you're looking at a full back piece, unless you want to simplify it down.

I just got into Regina Spektor, and I was listening to Braille the other day, and this lyric;
"Just sitting here and trying to decipher
what's written in Braille upon my skin..."
made me think that a tattoo written in braille would be really cool.
Idk lol.

I've seen a few braille tattoos, they look neat.
I really like the braille scarification, though. It has the image, as well as the actual raised feel of braille. Smiley

That paisley tree is lovely! I do agree that getting all that detail would be tricky though.. although you could always just bring it in and ask your artist to make his or her representation of it!

 I have never gotten a tattoo but I would like to get a little red umbrella (like an inch long) on my wrist. The thing is that I want it to look almost photographic.  Is this reasonable to expect? I don't want a black outline that is colored red. Also, do most tattoo parlors do wrists? There are 2 tattoo places in my town, and I know that I will have to talk to them, but I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice first.

Almost photographic detail in an inch-sized tattoo is WAY too much to expect. You'll have to go larger to get that amount of detail.

I've never heard of any of the tattoo shops around here refusing to do wrists, I'm not sure what happens in other cities though.

In my area (Houston) when I was really interested in a hand tattoo, I contacted a couple of really good tattoo shops and both said they refuse to do hand/wrist tattoos on people who don't have visible hand or neck tattoos already, I guess because they don't want to be responsible for a tattoo you might regret if you ever go out into the business world. You'd have to talk to the tattoo shops and see what their policy is on that.
Is there any symbolism to the red umbrella?

Some places I know of will refuse to do highly visible locations like hands and wrists unless you are already heavily tattooed...
One of the two shops that I frequent will try to talk people out of large scale pieces or highly visible ink. A lot of people will let them, so only those that really know what they want and are getting into will end up with ink in those spots.
Just remember that whatever you decide to have inked on you, you will have for the rest of your life, and regardless of what you think, being visibly tattooed will cause others to judge you, and could make it difficult to gain employment later in life. Not that it's right, just that that's they way things are. We live in a very prejudiced society.
And I'm not saying this to talk you out of it, I am visibly tattooed (full sleeve on my left arm, two tats on my left hand, ankle and back of calves all visible most days) I just would suggest thinking about it Smiley

As for detail, you CAN get a piece that has no black outline, just tell your artist that you would prefer it outlined in the same colour, but you will not have photographic detail in a piece that small.
