    Not for me!! I did have my belly-button pierced when I was younger, but not anymore.

    I think nowadays the question is, who hasn't a tattoo.

    Not me. Pierced ears are as far as I go with self-inflicted pain!

    The aging process seems to be taking care of unique body defilations. I will not pay to speed this up.

    When I turn 50 (which is 12 years from tommorrow) and I'm still doing Martial Arts (I do Tae Kwon Do) I want to get a tattoo that says "Kick A** like a Girl" across my lower back. But that's still a far ways away.

    I have 5, though they are in areas that I can conceal them should I want to, actually unless I tell you, most people don't think I have any. Ahhhh, to live over the days of my youth...

    LOL

    that avatar pic is an actual temporary tattoo that my niece and i wear when we go to quilt shows.

    we get stopped all the time as shows from ladies that want to buy them.

    it became so much that i go with little sheets of paper with the web address written on them.

    i also teach children to quilt thru the school system in my neighborhood and thru girl scouts and i give them all a tattoo when they complete their first project.

    its a real motivator for them.


    here's a link to the tattoo if any of you would like to buy one or more.

    I got one started over a scar from a cancerous tumor removed. Big mistake. Hurt too much. Sort of a rose...lol
    But when my lil sis passes all the family members are getting a tat with her name. Mine will be on my wrist under my watchband with a little crown and Mickey Mouse head.
    My sis is 52, blind, Down Syndrome, with many medical problems, yet she gets up everyday and makes the most of her life. She was a great artist before she went blind.I love taking care of her, with the help of 2 providers and adult daycare.

    I would get one, but at the moment I don't know what I want. I would also get one to drive my Dad nuts. (direct quote - no daughter of mine will have a tramp stamp.)

    I had them before they were "cool" which P*&^#s me off! I LOTHE being trendy , thank goodness I can cover them all up if I choose. I am going to get a 1\4 sleave when I can afford it.It will be for my personal viewing and will remain covered in public. Never judge a book by it's cover , a funny story...

    I am a critical care nurse, a fairly respectable profession, I keep my personal life very private from work. I was getting report from another nurse one evening and she proceeded to tell me that the young woman whose care I was assuming was "trashy" well I can not stand when people are jugemental so I asked why she would say this, she replied"well she has tattoos all over her back and legs" I then replied " Charlene, how long have you known me?", She replied " about 5 years why? I then said what do you think of my character? She said I think you are a great person what are you talking about? I then proceeded to pull up my sleaves, pull down my scrub top, started to pull my pants down well you get the picture, Needles to say she turned very pale and then very red! Moral of the story .... JUDGE NOT !!!!!!!!!

    Bet she thought twice from then on about judging a book by it's cover :)

    I wanted a dragon fly tat...until my daughter publically said "yeah it will look great now but in 15 years that dragon fly will not be on your hip it will be on your knee and look like a teradactyl (sp?)..." I stopped looking at tattoo pictures and tried to keep from smacking her for her honesty ;)....in the end the blunt response (no idea where she gets THAT from) was appreciated because she was probably right! - besides my one of my other children reminded me that I really don't like needles and they have to use a needle to put the tattoo on!

    So - no Tattoo's on me!
