I was the same; I found something that would be meaningful for me no matter what stage of my life I was in, and then let it stew for a while. No sense rushing into something that's permanent.
My fiance's ("officerI") tattoo artist is so sick of doing tribal tramp stamps that he typically doesn't charge us for the work he does since it's a large piece of art. Maybe I'll get him to post a picture so you guys can see it... hmm...
Don't try to tell me who you are; tell me who you love.
The beauty of life is, while we cannot undo what is done, we can see it, understand it, learn from it and change. So that every new moment is spent not in regret, guilt, fear or anger, but in wisdom, understanding and love.
