Tell me about you tattoo, got a photo? here's a chance for show and tell. I have my ears pierced, one hole each ear. I would maybe get a second opening. I would certainly love to have a tattoo, a dragon I think because that is my Chinese zodiac sign. Do you regret your decision to have a tattoo? What's the appeal with all those ugly facial piercings...are they supposed to be attractive?

I have a tattoo on my left shoulderblade of a dolphin jumping in front of the moon with a star, it has my oldest sons name on it. I have a butterfly on my tummy near my right hip, it's very pretty -sorry no pickies. I want a bear for my younger son but haven't found the right one yet. I have my ears and tummy button pierced, I do not like the eye-brow ones, they make me feel queasy - don't know why but I don't mind the others just don't want them on me.

Hi rainbow. Your dolphin tattoo sounds lovely...quite spiritual. I'm sure you'll find exactly the right bear soon. For a long time I wanted a butterfly but could not decide on which sort. Ditto for me about those piercings. The only message I get from them is one of violence...not nice at all.

I don't have a picture of it right now, but I have a tattoo of some stars on the back of my left shoulder. It's personal because it's my own design and my own choice of colors. It doesn't have any particular meaning; I just like stars and I like the colors pink, blue and purple. I've had it for a year and people still see it and admire it. I can't wait until I can afford to get more! I also have a nose piercing. I think it is feminine and cute and even my mom agrees.

Good for you. That's the way to do it. It's a good thing for your Mom to be in on it too. When I was young, tattoos meant you were a "Bad" person..if a girl had one she was really "rough" and I was a bit scared of them. My elder daughter has a bluebird tattoo on her back and my younger daughter has a Chinese symbol on her back.

I got a tat 20 years ago when I was in the army. I've always liked it up until like5 yrs. ago because now it's all faded and run together.

What a shame. I didn't realise they deteriorated to that extent.

I have my ears pierced, two holes in each & thinking of getting (piercing) two more holes. Also my nose is pierced (only one hole). I don't have a tattoo on my body & I may not have in future also beacuse it looks good seeing others with tattoos, but I personally don't prefer it. I find only nose & ears piercing attractive, others I don't like, but piercing belly is fine.

I love those belly piercings with the gemstone jewellery but only on a flat symetrical belly and only at the beach or similar place. Too much bare skin is so inappropriate in most public places. I also find tiny bejewlled nose piercings attractive on women. Eyebrow piercings, lips, private body parts, all these things are saying something I guess but I don't get the message. It's just ugly and why would anyone want to pierce their tongue? Ewww. I'm also thinking of a tattoo that's a bracelet of tiny delicate dainty flowers and be covered by a watch if and when it needs to be covered.

I have two tattoos right now, one on my calf and one on my lower back. I love them and don't regret them. They are in places you can't normally see except in the summer when I wear shorts or a bikini.

I have my ears pierced, one hole each ear, i use to have my belly button but that got knocked out twice so i left it out. i always thought to get my tounge pierced but nah i have changed my mind as i cant stand pain like i could when i was little, one day i would like to get a tatoo, not sure of what yet, probably if i have kids their names or something. i dont really like facial piercings like nose, eye browse or lips just not really attractive (sorry if i offend anyone)

I have 3 ear piercings. I was considering having a nose piercing but then I was told it wasn't too attractive. That made me change my mind quickly.

I have about ten tattoos, I say 'about' because some are connected to others so I count them as one. Eleven body piercings not including my ears but none of them are visual, meaning no facial ones. I do regret a couple of tattoos but I have had some cover up work done.

All I have is pierced ears one to each,it was not popular when I was a teen,now my daughter has one on her arm and my grandaughters each have several tats and several piercing in each earand one grandaughter has her nipples pierced (OMG) the tats are small and very pretty ,but I sure don't think face and body piercing are attractive at all ,some are really dumb..

I do not have a tattoo anywhere in my body. I would love to get one but I am not sure that if I should really do it. Getting a tattoo is a permanent thing and I think that if I get a tattoo and I begin to hate it in the future then there will be a big problem. So we have to think a lot before getting a tattoo. However I do have my ears pierced. It's sort of our ritual to get our ears pierced during our childhood. I had no choice because I was just a kid but I have to say that I love the piercings in my ear. I sometimes wear a ring in my ear. I hate piercings in the face. I do not like it when people pierce their tounges, nose and other parts of their face.

i don't have any tattoos yet. i'm still trying to decide what i want to get. i don't want to put anything on my body that i dont want there forever. i do have 3 piercings. my belly button on the top and bottom and my tongue. i'm allergic to ear piercings otherwise i would have them still done. i had them done when i was 7 and had problems so i can't wear them often. only like once a year if that. i tried the cartildge but it swelled up really bad. i also tried a second hole and it didn't work either. so i gave up. lol. i don't have any facial piercings right now because i dont want anyone to not hire me for that. if i do get my piercing license then i'll get my nose pierced but those are tiny. so it's not like i'd have my entire face done. plus my grandma and mom would kill me. they nearly had a heart attack when i got my belly button redone and my tongue done. lol.
