Some Ulema allow a tattoo, but a tattoo with the name of Allah would not be allowed, because when you get filthy (najis) it would be disrespectful.

I want to get a tattoo but I'm really fearful-

1.) I don't handle pain very well

2.) I don't know exactly what I want to get

3.) I am afraid that later in life I won't like it and it is permanent ...

The other day my friend asked me to go get a tattoo with her.  I declined because of the above reasons.  I wish they would come up with an easier/cheaper/less painful way to remove tattoos, then I'd definitely get one.  Or demi-permanent tattoos (like demi-permanent hair that is mostly permanent but will come off after several months/years).

I think it will be a lot  better if  you express your faith through your deeds than your tattoo.

tattoos are haram fro-m a salafi/Sunni perspective, I used to be salafi! it imitates pagans and pagan culture from the days of pre islam(jalaliyah) its conserved haram by sunni scholars and hadths, I head from a shia its in bin al anwar,i might be wrong.

As the other brother said, getting Allah's name tattooed is not allowed because of when you get najis.

Also, who do you want to express your faith to? Others - why? 

Allah? He can read your heart, doesnt need a tattoo reminder

Those all sound like reasons to avoid one. 

You can always use temporary tattoo stickers. Don't know how effective they are, but that would resolve the concerns you've stated.

Rulings of Syed Ali al Sistani regarding Tatoos

http://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01336/

Question: Is it permissible to get a tattoo?
Answer: There is no problem in it per se.
 
2Question: What is the Islamic law about tattoos? Do they affect the wudhu and ghusl?
Answer: Tattoos are permissible and they do not affect wudhu irrespective of whether they are permanent or temporary.
 
3Question: Is it permissible for a woman to get her eyebrows tattooed?
Answer: Since the tattoos are done under the skin, there is no problem. However, if they are considered zinah (adornment) in common view, she must cover them from non-mahram men.
