Ok, discussion on another thread got me wondering. Who here has tattoos and piercings? C'mon, whatcha got and where? Or if you have some of that crazy body mod stuff like split tounge or subdermal implants, etc.

I got a cross with a lamb bleeding into a cup with a banner that says "Faith" on my left arm and St. Michael casting Lucifer out on my left shoulder blade. Plan on getting more when I have money. I also used to have my nipples pierced but they have since healed up and I don't think I'll do anymore piercings.

Its the cost of Tattoos that confuses me i dont know what a good price to pay is.

But they are really popular where i live we have about 6 or 7 tattoo parlors in a rather small city centre

I spent about $300 for the one on my back, it was like 3 or 4 hours of work total and $75 for the one on my arm and it was like 30 minutes of work. It's like buying art, you can buy cheap art or you can buy expensive art and usually you get what you pay for

It would depend on the shop and what you wanted to get done. If you just wanted a word in basic black lettering or soemthing then I would estimate anywhere from $40-$70 depending on how things are where you live (I live in Mississippi, everything is cheap...except gas). If you wanted a portrait of the Virgin Mary or something with with alot of color expect to pay more

I would pay more to get a better quality, it's why I'm waiting until I have the cash.


Not sure how. I've seen hip piercings though. They look cool. If you have the body for it.

Is that code for not being fat? I've seen some hip piecrcings, they are pretty hot.

I want a few tattoos, from a sleeve to a bird on my upper arm, like a Cardinal. A back tat, writing on my stomach, but I need the cash and clear ideas.

I would guess increasing the price by at least $30. My color on my back was done at a separate time so basically I just paid for 2 sessions. He wanted to give my back time to heal before throwing the color on.

Ok I see the hip piercing now. I've seen those in several places, like arms and whatnot. Hips are definantly the best place to get that done, it's pretty cute.

But you see, I wan't a sleeve of my skin ripped with machinery underneath, leading to a half chest piece (think of The Rock's a little) with an alien at the controls.

In my city if you want to be a cop you can't have any visible tattoos whatsoever and if you go to the interview with long sleeves the captain makes you pull your sleeves up to check. That's another reason why all of my tattoos will be hidden unless I go active duty

If they have websites where you can compare them I would do that, or talk to any of your buddies if they have tattoos from any of them. Make sure they are clean and sterile and professional. And when you go if you don't see them open up a new package or use little individual cups for the ink don't be afraid to walk out. That's the problem with getting a tattoo from a buddy type thing. My brother in law gets his tattoos from some dude he knows at his house and I worry that he'll catch Hep or something

I have an Ankh with the words: "Unas, Slayer of the Gods. His existence is everlasting" in my left arm, near my shoulder. The words come from the Nile song Unas, Slayer of the Gods, I f'n love that track.

I have other ideas for tats but no money. I'd like to have the "Killers" Eddie (Iron Maiden's zombi), an hourglass with the legend "All hurt. Last kills" in latin, and another idea that can be considered "polemic", so I put it quoted in white below.


A cross made of dollars/euros notes, and the words: "Built with the money of the poor" Of course it'll be hidden by clothing

My tattoo count is 9.....and I'm nowhere near done

My piercing count is 8...I think.....

My tattoos and piercings are for me and me only, I personally couldn't give a damn what anyone else thinks of them or thinks of me for having them.....people keep photos, I collect tattoos...they are my way of relaying my life story and every single one means something.....I don't regret a single one....people should think carefully before they get inked, it has to be something you are proud to show off (if you are that way inclined) and something you'll never regret....I don't particularly like the idea of people getting tattoos for the sake of having a tattoo...

I respect people's decisions to have tattoos and piercings and I also respect people's decisions not to have any tattoos or piercings. What I would never do, is judge people for their decision, it's not my right to do so...

Polly thinks tattoos rock....that is all

Sorry, I think it's really lame to get rid of a piercing just because everyone else started to get the same one. It's cool to do something because no one else is doing it, but it's extremely douchey to quit doing something because everyone else is doing it.

As for me I have no tats (:() and only have my ears gaged to a 0. Had them hole punched essentially as I started out at a 6. Used to have my left eyebrow pierced but took it out as it was a pain to take in and out everyday for work and it never quite healed up right. Also had the left side of my bottom lip done, and I really miss it. Let that one heal up because I kept losing the jewelry when I'd take it out for work. Damn I miss that thing.

I want to be covered in tattoos. My plan is to be bisected, one half being good and one evil. I want all the tats on one side to mirror the other side but with the good side having color and the evil side only has red and black. One shoulder will have a three headed lion, like Cerberus, the other will have a three headed dragon. All of the good tats will have animals and the evil ones will all be dragons. With the filler being tribals and flames for the evil side. The good side is gonna have some Japanese yakuza style filler.

I'm planning on getting my daughter's footprint tatted on the back of my calf.

Got a tribal on my right upper arm which I'm thinking or either adding to or going over.

Also got a tattoo I designed that contains my sons name in Japanese kanji surrounded by water that I have to still get done as soon as I have the cash.
