Tattoo and Pierced Tribe II - Page 3

post #41 of 703
Someone asked about a bay area artist and I cannot recommend Barnaby more highly. He is in SF at the corner of Haight and Masonic. http://www.momsbodyshop.com/barnaby.html


I used to have a bunch of ear piercings, but they all died tragically. I have been pierced in other places eight times and only one has stayed with me without infection. My body just doesn't like being pierced. I have one tat, but given that it is a full back piece extending from my neck to my butt and side to side I feel like I should be given extra credit. I'm 12 hours in on work and there is a little bit to go; I didn't finish because I got knocked up a little sooner than we anticipated.

Wow! That is a commitment. Good for you! I just finished 6 hours and was ready to be done. I'm sure it is an amazing piece

It was good!

It took over 2 hours to complete and while it wasn't the most pleasant sensation I have ever felt I will definitely be doing it again!!

this is also my Mother's Day gift...it's a sun with a celtic knot center.

Love the new Mother's Day ink!

I'm going to go get my nose pierced today. Yippee! I'm really excited.

I have a question: What happens if you need to go the dentist and your piercing isn't healed all the way. I'm guessing you have to take it out to get x-rays right? How bad would it be to take out a piercing that wasn't healed all the way for a few minutes and then put it back in?

I don't think you have to take it out. I always forget, then go to take it out when I'm in the dentist chair, and he tells me it's fine.

You definitely have to take it out for an MRI, but x-rays it will just show in the picture (not do any damage)... and if it's in your nose, it shouldn't be in the way of anything your dentist needs to see.

I wouldn't take it out.

I did it! My nose is pierced!!!! I love it. It looks really good. Didn't hurt too much at all. It was my mother's day present to myself. I'll get some pictures and post them. I still owe you all a picture of my tattoo too.

changingseasons - thanks for your reply. I appreciate it!


Happy Mother's Day everyone!

Me too. I've tried pretty much every metal out there and none of them agree with me.

Can I join?

I have two tattoos though I have gotten three then had a cover up done. I have my nose pierced and got that 20 years ago. In the past I have also had nipples pierced.
Here's my latest which I got a week ago! Sorry for the photo which isn't the best and is a bit blurry.

Hi Mamas!


I just got new ink about 2 or 3 months ago... a cover up over a cover up of a really bad tat from like 17 years ago. I have 10 tattoos & want many many more.

Anyway i also want to get a cross on the inside of my right arm but dont know what kind any ideas would be great thanks. oh and want to get my eye brow pierced but am still contimplating that one i dont know if i want to go through the pain....
post #58 of 703
ok, I think that you shouldn't talk about your tats/piercing without also supplying a pic.

I'll start
Tat number one
Tat number two

I'm thinking that for tat number 3 I'll get a ohm symbol on my left inner forearm. I just have to talk someone into going with me as an excuse. I'm working on my SIL at the moment.
post #59 of 703
well i will get a pic taken soon and show ya'all sorry dont have a pic yet. I love the tats they are cute. the right forearm is where i want to put the cross but dont know what type to get
post #60 of 703
Sounds like a plan.

Tatt #1 is on my hip and still covered with some prego fat.. so you don't get to see that one. Plus, I did it myself when I was 16, so it's pretty faded.


Tatt #2, 1999ish- getting the tatt done, final tatt

Tatt #3, 2006- (pic taken in November- giving DD a bath when she was a few weeks old)
