I have 0 tattoos but my ears are pierced and Friday my friend and I got our nose pierced, "friendship" piercings lol. I got mine repierced, I had it pierced about a year or 2 ago and took it out. It's just a little stud. I've had my cartilage pierced before, but took it out for Marching band competition & it closed during performance :/
I have two tattoos. One on my left wrist with the sanskrit word 'anekantavada', which is more or less a philosophy I try to live my life by. link , and here's an actual picture of it after I got it done link . I got it in a brownish red ink to mimic henna. And I need to have it touched up because bits of it are kind of patchy from healing wrong. The guy who did it had a really heavy hand sometimes, and lighter other times, so the ink came out kind of uneven after healing. I also have an inverted triangle on my left inner ankle, that I gave myself when I was like 16. There's no particular meaning there, but I don't regret it because it reminds me of good memories, and actually looks pretty good for a self-done tat. Lines are crisp and solid, etc. I also gave several friends tattoos in a similar manner, probably around 10 of them, during the same time period. So it's not TOTALLY meaningless, it reminds me of my friends and good times we've had. But it's nothing profound by any means.
And I have 7 piercings. Two lobe piercings in each ear, first set gauged to 00, second set normal. And one cartilage piercing on the left side. Then a lip piercing on the left side, and a septum piercing which is the most recent. Are you seeing a pattern here? I clearly favor my left side, hahaha.
I don't have any of either. I wouldn't consider a piercing because I don't feel as if I'd suit one, both in appearance and personality.
However, I would consider a tattoo along the lines of a 'tribal shoulder tattoo' (google it, would provide link but iPod is pissing about) I would only get it once I gained what I would consider to be sufficient muscle
I currently have regular lobe piercings and a nose piercing.
In the works are the second lobe, cartilage, and lip piercings, along with three or four tattoos. I just need the money as far as the piercings go (and an OK from my boss on the lip one), and for the tats I need money and to stop being a little bitch about pain.
I used to have 2 piercings in each ear. The first ones I got when I was a baby, the second ones I got a few years ago, but the lady who did them didn't disinfect them after the piercing (they're supposed to), and both of them got infected and I had to let them close.
I have two tattoos one on my right arm and one on my left leg. I've also has 6 piercings 3 in each ear.. then I let them all close then pierced them again then gauged them and now they're just regular holes agiain
