How long does a tattoo take to heal?

I'm thinking of getting a tiny lettering tattoo, as a surprise for a significant other. How long does a small and delicate one take to heal? I'd like it to be ready and uncovered within a fortnight. Probably lower stomach/groin area, maybe a single letter, no more than one inch in size. Any information... show more I'm thinking of getting a tiny lettering tattoo, as a surprise for a significant other.

Any information much appreciated! (it would be my first, by the way!)
Thanks
