Just a bitch...
I was visiting my ultra-conservative in laws with DD and DH. Mind you, DD is 8 months old and they NEVER made a point to come see her. So like a bunch of dumb-asses, here we go 15 hour drive to Atlanta to see them

ANYWAY...they asked if I could wear jeans to cover up my ink and a long sleeve shirt in 90-effing degree Atlanta weather. I was so flabbergasted, but didn't want to create waves, so I freakin complied. Am I an idiot?

Glad to have found this thread : ) I've got 4 tats and gauged lobes. Have been planning a sleeve but am going to wait until we are no longer nursing... Dh isn't crazy about the sleeve (he has one tat that he got last summer) idea BUT completely loves all of my bod mods and I am sure he will love it when he sees just how gorgeous it is going to be He loves my gauged ears and jewelry (currently 00 gold dicros) but told me when we first started dating that the tats and earrings intimidated him a little bit. I am by NO means an intimidating person...at all lol- he was going on looks alone. Anyone else find this to be true of their Dh/Dp or strangers in general?

EarthMommy80- I got some stares at my last place of employment. When I first started there, I wore mostly long sleeves as it was winter (I have sanskrit forearm tattoos on both arms) but I caught the women in my office peeking every time I would roll them up lol
Anyway mostly just wanted to say hello : )

Hi everyone!

I am not in this tribe, but I was hoping some you mamas might have any ideas on how to transform my one tattoo.

It is simply three rings around my upper arm. Three lines, thin black lines, about 1/4 inch apart.

It sort of looks like a prison tattoo. But it isn't. It is homemade, though. Long story.

Anyway, I would like to change it into something. I was thinking some kind of feather band thing, with some feathers hanging down, native american style, YK?

I always get such get ideas, links, info and inspiration on all the forums here at Mothering, so hopefully someone can get me going here!

Thanks.
Oh and thanks, all you inked beauties, for bringing art and colour into the world on your beautiful skin. Blessings!

Hello mamas!!!

DH and I are swinging through Miami for a couple of hours, and sticking to our tradition of getting inked away from home, wanted to stop in a good shop. Are any of you ladies in Miami, and if so, can you suggest a shop? We have our designs, already, just need someone who can do good solid work to ink them on.

Hi mamas... I'm hoping I could ask you gals a question. I think it would be better suited here than in the "I'm pregnant board." I have 3 piercings in each ear lobe. The bottom piercings were done when I was a small kid and are 100% healed. The top two were done a few years back while I was in college... and I thought they were healed. The two top piercings in my right lobe seem to have opened back up and are irritated/possibly getting infected. Nothing has happened with them that would cause this-no change in jewelry, I didn't hit my ear, I hold my phone to the other ear, my head rests on the other side when I sleep... the only thing that coincides with this is my getting pregnant. My usual sea salt and warm water rinse solution doesn't seem to be helping this time around. Is this normal during a pg? Any ideas on how I can heal this without taking out my jewelry and having them close up? TIA!

Added a new piece yesterday. It's SO awesome!! My tattoo girl is beyond great. I went in to just see if she could do something with the one design I've been seeing around online - a heart wearing headphones - and maybe add a quote.

It was supposed to just be a small little thing on my wrist.

Welllllll...the problem with working with a crazy-talented artist is that it sometimes turns into way more than you had planned. WHich is fine by me! haha

Anywho, here's the finished product.
The quote says: "Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness." And it's a heart wearing headphones that has an old school microphone going through it (a play on the old school heart/dagger tats).

Hi, I am thinking about getting my nose pierced. I really want to do it, but I have a couple of questions. If I ever decided to take it out later on, is the hole noticeable? And, will the piercer know where on my nose to place it or will he/she ask me where I want it? I don't have any friends IRL who have any piercings other than ears, so I don't have any recommendations to know where to go... San Antonio, Texas area? Any advice?

I've had it pierced twice and each time the hole closed I couldn't see it. They will ask but I'm sure they know the best place for you.

My most recent one has been evolving in stages.
1st sitting Outline: http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos..._2420667_n.jpg
2nd sitting, some color and leaves: http://gallery.me.com/deppemn/100016...12576443280001
Next will be more color and some touch up.

I have another butterfly tat on my tummy but its super stretched and pretty much toast after 3 kids. Although I do have plans to get it touched up more. Next will be my kids' names around my ankle and then a butterfly on my foot.

Yes, I have a butterfly theme going. My first represented my coming of age and venturing out on my own. I got it when I was 18. The 3 on my leg shown above represent my kids. One for each child. (and they picked the colors) The anticipated one on my foot will be for me, as an adult and representing what I've done with my life to this point. My kids' names are pretty self explanatory, adding little vines to fit with my other one. Tattoos for me, are markings of milestones and events in my life.

I am looking for some suggestions of 9 letter words, I want to go with a word that has something to do with being a mother and or wife... So if anyone has suggestions for me that would be so great I really want another tattoo but I cant figure out a 9 letter word.
post #514 of 703
My one and only tat has bled out. The colors have run and it looks terrible. Luckily, it's on the back of my neck so isn't visible most of the time but I wish I could get something over it.

I agree. I didn't notice a lot of fading. The shading does look lighter, but only because it has healed.

However, I've heard some ppl have reactions to red ink - their bodies reject it.

I'd talk to your artist, especially if you are unhappy. They are professionals and want their customers satisfied. Also, they would be able to tell you for sure if its a reaction to the ink or just lighter shading than you were expecting.

Just curious . . . why a 9 letter word?

How about: euphorias

Hi, I don't normally post in this tribe but I have my ears, nose, and navel pierced and I have two tattoos (with more to come!).

I am beginning to stretch my ears and I was curious for those of you who have done this: How did you decide how big to go?

I don't want to stretch too much, because most jewelry look like it would be heavy and I think that would bother me. Also, I do expect that my piercings will stretch out over time (just like regular earring holes do) and so I want to be able to move up a couple of gauges without being out of my comfort level wrt weight.

I know I could wear plugs for some of the larger gauges and those woudn't weigh much.. but mostly I like spirals. Are some materials a lot lighter than others? Any types I should avoid?

Thanks!

Evansmama- I just have to say: That tattoo is one of the most interesting and well done I have ever seen. Very, very cool! I am a little bit jealous, in a good way.

Well since I am posting I may as well join this tribe. I have my ears and nose pierced, and I have a monroe piercing, which I LOVE! I also have 10 tattoos, my favorites being the traditional birds holding a banner across my chest. The banner reads 'change or die', and the tattoos on my wrists. one is a magnet with the phrase 'Je Ne Sais Quoi', and the other being a strawberry heart(strawberry w/veins and heart valves) with a banner that reads 'Zycie Jest Slodkie' which means life is sweet in Polish. Next I am going to get a very feminine dotd skull on my left calf to match the masculine one on my right.

Have you got any suggestions for me? I want something representing the birth of my two kids (UC) and my own "rebirth" as a mother. I'd like something non-cliche . Input welcome

Oh, about nose piercings, I find they will heal completely, on me anyway, a few months after taking them out.

I have a Herbivore on my right arm and want to match it with a 9 letter word on my left, and thank you so much for your suggestion, its going on my top 5 list because I agree being a wife and mother if Euphoric!
