I love both, but don't have any. I've had a piercing that I really wanted, twice, but my immune system won't accept them. Both just grew out and fell off. I think that I figured out a modification that would not grow out (since it would involve about 4 inches of tunneling), but my wife can't stand the idea of any body modification. I'm still thinking about doing it anyhow, but it's an 'iffy' situation.
Wait for Doc Toxin to weigh in; he's got some awesome art.

No piercings for me, I used to do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and have been itching to do that or different grappling since I stopped. Long story short, if I get it pulled, it hurts. Don't want to take it off before every class, either.

No tattoos because it would have to be something I designed myself and I suck at that. Even if I did make something awesome, I change my mind too often to stick with it and not hate myself later.

I find both to be disgusting.

If a girl has a tattoo on her lower back, multiply the number of guys she said she has slept with by 10. I have yet to see a tattoo that I thought looked good. Im sorry, having razor wire around your bicep is played out and stupid.

I have to agree with my man Cyrus here.

The standard "picked off of the wall" tattoos like something on the lower back or the barbed wire around the biceps we can agree is stupid, but what do you think of tattoos that are original?

And what about pierced ears? Do you find those disgusting as well? I mean, they are pretty standard these days, even the previous generation saw them as nothing special.

I love both (on real people).

I use to date a girl with a very hot tatoo on her lower back. She designed it herself (was a painter) and it looked amazing, but she had very little experience with men, and was boring in bed.

I take it you've met every single chick on this planet with a tattoo on that area to justify this claim?

My daughter has had the corners of her upper and lower lips pierced and has put rings in the holes to link them together. I can't imagine what that feels like and refuse to find out. It is illegal to pierce kids under 18 in this state without a parent's permission, but she had it done by a friend (???) and won't say who it was. She assures me that on her 18th birthday she is going to get a tattoo, location unspecified. She is very good at drawing and is considering becoming a tattoo artist herself. That girl pokes a big hole in her father's heart.

on the same track, if a guy has piercings divide the number of girls he said he has slept with by 10

Jimmy, I can relate. My 15-1/2 year old daughter has decided that "high school sucks" and has gone from and honor student in AP classes to, well, barely passing her easiest class. Sigh. So much for getting into a good college straight out of high school!

It's tough watching your kids make decisions that you *know* they'll later regret. But, I made quite a few of those myself at that age, and managed to do OK!

I have a total of 6 piercing well 5 now, 3 in my left ear and 2 in my right. I use to have a lip ring! I gave them all to myself, and all i got to say is I have nothing against piercing. But if u decide to get one you will have the marks on your body for the rest of your life. Like where my lip ring was I have a divot!

Then tattoos, there is only to ways I would get a tattoos, again I have nothing against them i just don’t want to look at the same thing on my body for the rest of my life. I can’t even keep a background on my desktop for more that a week. But one way I would get one is if it had some meaning to me, like I would like to get one to remember my grandmother by. The second way is if I was a rock star, I would sleeve up my arms!

Hey! is lisab my wife's avatar? I would ask you to list your daughter's interests, but I fear you already have. Been there, done that, can't wait for senility.

You have no idea.
Well, I had a friend in highschool who wanted to be a tatoo artist. His parents helped him out and supported him. Last year (that's 5 years out of highschool) he opened his own shop. He now makes more money than his parents combined. Think about supporting your daughter in what she wants to do, rather than trying to put her into your own concept of what an acceptable career is.

Like I said, no idea. My daughter has been failing in school for two years now. She used to get A's. I watch in horror. I am glad that she wants to be a tattoo artist. I have given her advice on how to get started. I heap support on the poor thing. In the past that has always resulted in her abandoning whatever it was that I was supporting. If she has any interest in anything, I can't pry it out of her. My concern is not that she will become a tattoo artist, as I said she draws well. My concern is that she will fail at it because that is the root of her problem, she doesn't give a fig for anything.
