Who has them?

I have over 30 tattoos and at one time had 11 piercings and a dermal. Now I have two holes in each ear.

I managed a tattoo shop for a little while :-)

  • Back when it was cool I had my tongue pierced. I will say this- I later wanted the cartlidge at the top of my ear pierced and it hurt 10x worse than the tongue.

    But I removed the tongue ring and the cartlidge got infected so that didn't last.

    I don't have any tattoos. I like them fine on other people but, I'm always afraid I won't like it later if I got one. I debated on getting one after my dad died to honor him somehow but, my dad would probably roll in his grave no matter how nice the gesture. So I didn't want to get one in fear of displeasing him. If I did it would probably be the words "all the way" which is the motto of the 82nd airborne and also the words carved into his headstone. But I like the motto because I feel like it means "don't give up"- ya know?

    Okay - sorry for the cheese.

  • I have a very small star behind my left ear.  It's about the size of a nickel and I forget it's there because I can only see it in the mirror when my hair is up.  Someone once said he'd never met a person with only one tattoo and I totally surprised him.  I got it in college and don't mind it, but DH has asked that I not get any more, so I won't.  I have the cartilage at the top of my ear pierced as well as my lobes.  But I always forget that one's there, too!  
     
    If I were to get another, I would get a white ink tattoo of lace, not sure where.  But I've seen some on Pinterest and I think they are beautiful.

  • I've got 7 tattoos, and one piercing. 

    At one point I had my tongue pierced, my lip pierced in three places, 8 piercings in one ear and four in the other, and my eyebrow pierced twice, but when I started med school I couldn't have any piercings on my face, so the lip and eyebrows piercings closed up pretty quick, and then I removed the tongue piercing when I started seeing XW because she said they only suited women. I kept the ear ones a lot longer, but in the end all of them came out, except from my Daith piercing.

    My tongue
    Both my nipples

    I don't even know why I assumed everyone was so conservative looking! Lol.  I'm guessing reality is somewhere in between, no?

  • I had to look up a diagram on google, @kc1212 and @freakyfast.  I didn't know those terms either.  But, now that I know what they're called, I think the tragus is a really cute piercing.  I mentioned that to DH one time, though, and he said he would prefer it if I didn't get any more piercings.  He's kind of boring about these things.

  • @freakyfast‌ I've seen them before I just didn't know what they were called lol. I've always thought the tragus one is cute. But the rook looks painful... While I was at the salon the other day there was a girl in there with her face pierced. It was a small rhinestone in the place a beauty mark might be located...

  • I have 5 tattoos and love them! I used to have my tongue pieced, but that has closed up
  • @GraceyandTroy‌ I had the same impression!

    I have three holes in my left ear, two in the right all in my lobes. I used to have my tongue pierced, in college, but my mom bribed me to take it out with a shopping trip. :) no tattoos. I've thought about it, but haven't had the courage yet.

  • I have two tattoos.  One was a mistake, the other one I got last fall.  It's this, but in black ink.



    I have my ears pierced once now.  I have 2nd and 3rd holes that are blocked off on the back end.  I also had my cartilage pierced a few times, but it kept getting infected.  I had my belly button pierced when I was younger and skinny.  It got ripped out when I was at the office one day, I reached up and behind a copier to grab something, my shirt lifted too much and it got caught on the copier :-(
