Just about everyone out there has at least their ears pierced. Though, some, like me, have their ears pierced more than most (13 last time I counted) and then they don't stop there :D

Or maybe tattoos are more your thing.

So, share your tats and pokings and proddings by people who like to put their artwork on a living canvas or if you need/want to ask questions about tats or piercings I'm sure that collectively, people here can answer as all added up I'm sure there's not a place on the body that one of us hasn't been jabbed :D

I've had my ears pierced, though I cannot wear earings anymore (but they never grew over). I've never had the desire to pierce anything else, but think that they can be interesting in moderation.

I do love my tattoo though - 4 paw prints on my right outer ankle. They are henna coloured. I want to get them shaded now. I'm also planning for a second tattoo, and I'm finding that they are addictive.

I think that if you are doing something permenant, you should be damn sure what you are doing first though. Cause its too easy to get tired of things...and you have a lot of time to live with it. You'd better love it inside and out, and it should have a ton of meaning for you, IMHO.

Totally. It's why I'm never getting a tattoo. I'll only end up regretting it in ten years time or get bored.

Piercings are not as permenant. I had a secondary navel piercing that I took out as it was taking too long to heal for my liking and I have the tiniest scar left from it that'll probably have faded by this time next year. My ear rims should heal up if I take them out, apart from my lobes as lobes generally stay open if you've had them done for a lenght of time. Even though I've only had the first set done since I was 15, they'd stick.

There are some weird weird body mods out there that I wouldn't touch like tongue splitting and scarification. I've just never seen the appeal of those ones...

I'm going to get an Ankh tattooed somewhere before I die.

I just turned 17 on the 8th, and my mom promised me a tattoo. Since my name is Raven, I wanna get a raven/crow in between my shoulder blades. Now I'm just waiting for a few of my more artistic friends to finish a few designs...

I'm getting a cross on the inside of my wrist when I turn 18. I've wanted it for like 2 years now.

I want a cross on one shoulder, something patriotic on the other. A wedding band when I get married and if my love for Nighty endures for a while, I'll get him too.

I'm considering getting a triskelion somewhere, I'm just not sure yet where it'll go so it won't stretch too much as it ages.

Maybe an ankle...

Cake is always a worthwile bribe, they'd be silly to not take it!

But yeah, the back seems a popular place for a tattoo. I'm not too sure I get that - I mean, it's a good, big area to kinda show it off but then you can't really see it on your back unless you look in the mirror or get a photo :shrug

A tattoo thread with no pictures? This must be remedied!

Ive got 2 tatts myself. I wanna get my chest and back done, but still working on my right upper arm. Right upper arm is a full dragon with its tail wrapping around my arm to my elbow, wings almost wrap around the arm. When I was 15 i got my first tatt, its on my upper left. Its a bear head, with a paw raising in the background, string of beads coming down on each side, wrapping around 2 claws at the bottem.

I only have a crappy cell phone pic of the one

I have one tat and plan on at least two more. I have a triquetra on my left hip. I'm getting a gothic cross on my lower back and a rose on the inside of my right wrist eventually. I thought about getting a pair of pointe shoes (yes, I spelled it right and for those who have NO clue what that is, its ballet shoes, but not the slippers) on my ankle when i retire from dance, but I'm not sure about that yet.

EDIT:
oh! and I have my ears double pierced.
