I Would Like More Piercings and Tattoos

My last post got me to thinking, and this idea has actually been on my “to write” list for a long time. I have two tattoos and seven piercings. I love them all, even the incomplete tattoo on my left arm. Not only am I happy with the choices I’ve already made, I’d happily get more.

The only reason I haven’t yet is because I haven’t been able to set aside the money yet. I’m actually thinking that I should go to my bank online and set up a new savings just for that. Why not? I don’t treat myself very often, and a tattoo or new piercing would be a gift I’d enjoy. If I save for it and think about it, no one would have any right to give me a hard time about it.

I thought long and hard about my tattoos. I knew what I wanted. I know what I would get if I got more. I never acted on a whim and never would. I have to live with my body until I die, so I don’t think it’s something to be taken lightly. I wouldn’t be ashamed to have more ink adorning my body, and as long as I take good care of myself, I don’t have to worry too much about things sagging or turning weird as I get older.

When it comes to the piercings, I’m a little torn. I definitely want more in my ears, but I do fear the pain of getting into the cartilage. I’ve also considered eyebrow and lip. I do wonder how people drink with a lip piercing, but I love the look so much. Eric and my family have said they’d be fine with any choice I make. I guess I’m lucky to be with people who care more for my happiness than their own personal preference.

I think I will set up that savings. I don’t know why I never thought to do it before. It’s a great way to save, and it gives me time to think and be sure of what I want. And you know what? Much like I indicated in my previous post, I wouldn’t let other people’s opinions or judgements change what i want to do. I have to love my body, and I happen to be one of those people who thinks a little “paint and hardware” is beautiful.
