I'm kind of wanting to change my look a bit. Since I'm not messing with my hair right now, I'm gonna go for a body mod. I'm going to get a new tattoo or piercing. I'll only be doing this over winter break, after I have money and have time to devote to aftercare.
I don't know exactly what tattoo I plan on getting but I have a few ideas. For a piercing, in addition to my ears which I will get done too, I like the idea of my lower lip or snakebites.
Piercing because you can take it out. Unless you already have a tattoo, you may not understand PERMANENT ! I didn't understand how permanent tattoos are until I put a couple playboy bunnies on my arms. The fact I can't take them off can be stressful in certain situations, especially since they are so visible. Since you don't know what kind of tattoo you want, and where, be very careful.
I would go with a tattoo if it's something meaningful and something you've had on your mind for a while. My whole idea on it is - don't get a tattoo unless it's something you've wanted for longer than a year. I just got another one done yesterday.. took 2 hours. They don't hurt BTW, It feels like being scratched with a toothpick.
I'd say don't waste your money and go with neither. But, if you really want to, I guess piercing. That way you can at least take it out if you don't want to have it at the time where as a tattoo you're kinda stuck with it unless you wanna pay for expensive laser surgery to remove it.
Currently the tragus piercing is really popular. What about a nose piercing or belly piercing? Do you have those already? If your pain tolerance is high, I know that many people get tattoos on their ribs if you were interested in that. I personally would choose a piercing, cause my pain tolerance is super low...lol. Good luck with everything! :)
If you aren't absolutely positive about the tattoo you want, go for a piercing. You can take it out whenever you want. I think facial piercings would suit you because you have very feminine features. Snakebites would look badassss.
Tats are pretty great though. A good idea is to get it somewhere you can hide if need be, though.
