I've not been pierced here, but I absolutely loved the artist who did this tat for me. His name is Jason Masarik and he's at Atomic Tattoo and Piercing. I believe at the south location.

new here...wondering if anyone got tats/piercings while bf'ing?I got my nose pierced back in May,tried to change it a couple of weeks ago after the piercing guy had to leave and the tat guy said I could.I'm thinking of getting it redone this weekend...I guess it's recommended not to while bf'ing but the place I go to doesn't have a problem with it if it isn't a nipple piercing..they're super sterile but said they won't pierce a pg woman.

Also,if you have your nose done,which side?Mine was on the right but now I don't know which side to get it on.If I get it redone on the right,how long do I need to let it heal before getting it done again??

Sorry for all the questions..I have no friends IRL that are mamas and have tats/piercings

I tried posting this in TAO but didn't get a lot of responses, so perhaps I should ask you Mamas that already have body art

I have wanted a tattoo since I turned 19-years-old. My 27th birthday is September 27th, and I feel ready. The reason that it has taken me so long (besides being pregnant three times) is that I didn't want to rush anything. I didn't want to get a tattoo just to get one, I want it to have a lot of meaning.

I have been heavily leaning towards something birth related the last few years. It feels right since I am devoting my life to raising my babies and I am starting my midwifery education next spring.

I want something perfect. I love this pendant, it inspires me, but I don't know how well it would translate into body art. And I love color.

So, hit me! Any ideas? Anything you love?

Does anyone know of a place to buy quality body jewelry for decent prices online other than Body Art Forms? I swear I look through BAF twice a day, I need a new site to look at! Our 1st anniversary is coming up and I want DH to get me some new jewelry
post #186 of 703
I love BAF, but I also like [http://www.tribalectic.com/store/pc/ (though most of that is custom order).

CanidFL - I love your tattoo! It's beautiful. I'm amazed it only took 2 hours. Mine took 1.5 and it's nowhere near as big or detail!

Here are my long promised pics of my tattoo. The pics are taken by my 6 year old so they aren't great. I don't know if my nose piercing will show up. I'm planning on switching it to a ring so I'll post pics when I do that.

Thanks! I'm pondering trying glass plugs but I dunno yet! I'm eventually going to stretch to a 4 and then I might stay there for a while. How long after stretching should I wait to use glass, acrylic, bone, or wood? I was told to use only metal plugs right after stretching.
post #189 of 703
You don't have to wait to use glass, but I would stay away from acrylic and wait to use bone, wood, etc until your ears have healed from the stretching (or at least a few weeks to a month).

I LOVE the glass plugs from http://www.glasswearstudios.com/webpages/home.html Beautiful and very high quality.

Ooo decent prices too!! Off to make a wishlist for DH
post #191 of 703

Expensive, but sooooo pretty. I love to window shop there and dream of all the things I would order if I only had the bottomless pit of money.
post #192 of 703
heheh i love to window shop too, for a while it was dipes now its jewelry. DH just rolls his eyes at me!
post #193 of 703
LOL. Same here, except for me it was baby wraps. Now that I'm happy with the wraps I have (and I've downsized a lot to just what I love to use and is comfy), I'm hooked on plugs and jewelry (oh, and bpal oil....yum!).

Oooh! I love that! I've been wanting to get another tat, but haven't been able to find anything that really clicks.

I designed my first tattoo, myself:

I love that picture. I would go talk to an artist and see what they can do. You want it to look pretty on your body KWIM? I just recently got a tat to represent my future midwife career (i am starting school in a couple weeks) and my family. Look back 1 page and you can see pics. I originally wanted a lotus flower with a baby crowning but the artist drew up something much more pretty that still has the meaning.

Thanks. I'm still in awe over it. I love it! He was just really good. I have no idea how he did it so fast. He freehanded the baby and butterflies too which made me nervous but it turned out great. I love yours too!

i finally got my tat!! it is so pretty and the guy did a great job. but my leg is so sore!! i dont remember any other one being so sore afterward. but i wanted to put out there that im bf'ing also and i felt very comfortable getting a tat. the guy is really great and super clean. he even had a cold and blew his nose like ten times and had to germ x everything and get new gloves and what not. im just sad we are leaving soon, ill have to save up to get at least one more before we go.
post #198 of 703
ooooh I want to see pics!! I could not imagine a leg tatt. It sounds super sensitive.

Hello fellow tat mamas!!

I only have one tattoo...as of yet, but really want to get another on my hip. I haven't had time to read all of the posts here yet, so I don't know if this has been asked before. We're planning on having at least one more kid, and I'm worried about possibly stretching out a tattoo from a pregnancy. Anyone have any experience with this? My current tattoo is on my upper middle back, so it wasn't affected when I was pregnant with ds. I didn't get any stretch marks the first time around, but I don't know if I'll be so lucky next time.

TIA!
