Oh you are so right on! Piercing is just about the ugliest thing; but isn't that what it all about?? Bringing attention to one's self? Always reminds me of the native pictures in the old National Geographics.View Thread
Hey, I guess I am still a little "old school" but changing or trying to! I used to think that "tats" were dirty and an expression of low class and that probably had to do with my parents expressing their feelings.
However, I have seen some very tasteful and actually artsy type tats the last few years but still cringe at the "in your face" arms/legs and poorly done tats.
Seems like it is quite a business now and it will be with us forever; even in death. My children did the tat thing, one wishes she wouldn't have and is trying to get it changed by an over-tat. Another has a very beautiful tat on her backside or lower back she can show or not. The last one wishes he had never had one done but was in the Navy and that was the thing to do ...... gosh, what peer pressure will do.
Anyway, bottom line to me is think about it; ask around; and don't just climb in the chair because others think it is cool.View Thread
