Tattoos and piercings?

I think this has been posted before, but do you all have any tattoos or piercings? If so, what kind of tattoos do you have? No need to tell me (unless you want to) about your piercings, some of those can get personal... but I will go first:

I have two tattoos. One is on my back of the chinese symbol for happiness and one on my hip which is a daisy, my Mom's favorite flower!

I had my tongue pierced for a short period of time but I took that out, and I have my belly button pierced but no jewelry in it. I also have my ears pierced twice on one ear and three times on another.

Next week, I am getting a tattoo on my foot! : ) can't wait!

I have a small sun tattooed on my arm. Walked out of a bar in a drunken stupor 23 years ago and thought it would be fun to get one. I still like it;-)

I had my permanent eye, lip and brows tattooed on a couple years ago, and refreshed this year. I love it!

Lets see.........I have an anklet tattoo of a rose vine on my ankle, two small hearts on the left side of my chest (for my girls), and about a 3 1/2 inch black panther climbing up the left side of my lower leg. The only one I was drunk for was the panther. That's the only one I really regret getting because you can't really hide it.

Those tattoos on the toes or feet huuuurt! You're braver than me Tiffany!

I have a shark on my right shoulder... rrrr...

I had my eyebrow pierced, but took it out 2 years ago. I had an industrial in my left ear, but took it out about 6 months ago. I have one hole in one ear, two in the other, and a tragus piercing in my right ear.

I'm getting a few more tattoos, hopefully. I want a Tara goddess, maybe an Om... maybe. Not quite sure. I'd like to build on my shark, maybe 1/4 sleeve it. We shall see!

I nearly fainted when I go my ears pierced - any other place and I would surely die! lol

The only tatoo I've ever had is one of those "fake" ones - no guts to undergo the real thing.

I have giant tattoos! I have a huge lucky cat on my thigh, a Medusa half sleeve on my left arm, an eyeball piece based on a Margaret Atwood poem on my back, a hammer and sickle on my right arm, a skull on my lower stomach, and a dragon on my right foot/ankle.

If anyone is looking for work, let me know! I know artists in almost every state! I work for a tattoo mag...it's kind of my passion.

Oh, my left ear is pierced twice, been that way since I was 18, but at 43 I'm a weekend warrior with the earrings. It doesn't go over well at my office!

Well, since everyone here is pierced or tatooed, how about some pictures. Tasteful ones of course. Would love to see all the artwork.

I was thinking about it after my girls got their little ones on their hips. Problem is that when you're 56, the sagging has already begun and whatever I have would start looking deformed pretty quickly.

Come on, someone can start a new thread....pics of the body, or.....our skin speaks.

I've been a tattoo artist/shop owner for 20 years. 45% of my body is covered. Pretty much comes with the territory.

I have a tattoo of a frog on my ankle. I want to get another tattoo soon. I am thinking a fairy or something along those lines or maybe a different style frog. I have three holes in one ear and 4 in the other ear. The 4th is the one at the top of the cartilage. I also have my nose pierced. I had it done about 4 weeks ago and I just love it. Not to toot my own horn but it looks really cute. Its just a simple little stud. Hmmmm, maybe I will post a pic soon.
