Bodies aren't for drawing on (silly tattoos)

Tattoos. Piercings. Arms surgically attached to your chest. Many of you do these things to feel pretty.

All I've got is a lower lip stud. I've been "meaning to" get a tattoo or two for ages. But shit, this is my precious skin, I don't want to wake up in 15 years or so, look down at my chest and think, "That stupid eagle is fucking stupid. What the hell was I smoking?"

Is a tongue stud a good idea? I hear it hurts like hell for a week, and you can't drink alcohol. Fuck that, I'm no fan of mouth pain. How about "Black Art"? Is that still the norm to get if you can't afford elaborate designs with all the colors of the rainbow?

I'm glad I don't have another dude's arm on my goddamn chest.

    When you get tattoos from designs you bring into the shop, can you make them do a dupe on paper or whatever, before actually doing the tattoo? Gotta have a lot of faith in these people getting everything right the first time, I guess.

    No, they just freehand the design onto your skin.

    It's tricky, but sometimes they do well.

    That's far more original than the WoW tattoo one of my friends wants to get.

    Yeah, he wants a female Night Elf.

    Here's the deal with tattoos.

    You don't get them to mean the same thing in 20 years as it does right now. You get it because it holds signifigant meaning right now. If in 20 years you look at it, and you've changed, it serves as a reminder of what was. If you still feel that way, then it means all that much more. Regardless.... regretting tattoos is fucking stupid. Either you really want it, or you don't. black or white. yes or no.

    of course.

    That would be rather silly otherwise, unless you wanted the artist to do some downright funky obscure shit with shading.

    I know a very young and surprisingly intelligent, and attractive young lady with the horde and alliance symbols on her chest.

    Looks nice.

    The tattoos too.

    Would that make the space between her breasts Alterac Valley?

    I should read a pamphlet, or something.

    For the last 12 years I've been wanting to get the same type of tattoo, so I'm not worried, really. I'm a big fan of tribals, something like

    Both arms, similar style

    no

    You should go to a shop, a couple shops, talk to the artists. Get a feel for botht he work, and the environment.

    Any decent professional will take the time to explain evrything and talk with you about exactly what you want.


    If you go in and the place is set up like a fucking fast food joint:

    "here's the books, pick out what you want, I'll be back in 20 mins"


    Turn around, and walk the fuck out.

    I have a tattoo on my shoulder that I absolutely adore.
    I also have a lip ring that I constantly chew on and always pop the ball out.
    It's very annoying and I wish to take it out, but first I'm going go to a smaller size to see if that's better.

    Nah, not really. If that were the case, I would already have something stupid. It is more of I want to get a tattoo/piercing but haven't decided on anything I particularly want.

    I have a vertical labret, and my right eyebrow done twice.

    I've wanted to get a half sleeve, sort of dedicated to all the nerdy nostalgic things that I cling to.

    I've been too lazy to go talk to some artists about it, and I'm thinking it would cost a lot, and I have other shit I need to buy right now.
