Tattoo and Pierced Tribe II - Page 5

post #81 of 703
Oh I never saw this tribe I have only one tatoo right now, on my upper back and shoulder, two roses, which covered up a stupid ugly thing I got when i was like 16

I don't know how to post a picture (help lol) but I would love to post it. Maybe someone can give me an idea of how to add to it. I really have been trying to think of something to incorporate mothering or my kids somehow but nothing has come to me!

I have had several piercings, my nose which I took out so that I can re pierce because I didn't like the placing (that was about 6 years ago), and my belly one I took out a few years ago wtih pregnancy 1. I think I took it out just a little late because the skin stretched a little. I plan to re-do this one as I have lost the tummy now and my skin looks better there.

I also had an eh....unusual peircing, but i have taken it out because it did not really function properly, and just became an annoyance! But I tried it for a few months which was what I wanted.

I have had my shoulder done twice and my leg just recently. My leg wasn't that painful while getting it done except when it went over my ankle and a large scar I have there.

I do have to say that it was bloody painful on the two following days and swelled up hugely!

At the bottom will be anger and fear because those are things I've had to go through to achieve the things I want. There will be blue sky background and her hair will be filled in with red. I'm hoping I only have 2-3 hours to go.

OMG, me too, on both counts!

Slapping it is supposed to help the itching without scratching the dry skin off.

I'm at four and a half tats right now (half since I need to get the color work on the latest done.)

The most recent - Peacock - pic may not be work safe as there's some naked bum profile.

I do a lot of slapping after sittings. I also find that using Oil of Olay Complete Body Wash for extra dry skin tends to help me get through the healing/peeling much faster.

I have this bias towards writing in tattoos being only in a language you can read. So yay!

Love the peacock! Are you coloring it?
post #89 of 703
Getting the peacock colored is the next on my tattoo list. I just have to save up the funds to do it. I'm excited though because my artist just got some new tips that did great colorwork in much less time on my DP's back.

hannahsmummy thanks for the slapping idea! why is my tattoo itching so much a week later???

fun sidenote...my daughter's dance recital was last night. My tattoo was a hit with everyone.

post #91 of 703
wow, wow, wow! i am lovin all these pics.

kitsune, the celtic piece on your back is SICK. i've always wanted to do a knotwork piece like that at the base of my neck but i think i'd be too sensitive there.

willow, that peacock is GREAT! love the furry legs too, haha.

i gotta take some pics but mine feel lackluster now, though i love em dearly. i definitely need some new work this summer!

Does having tats your DH can read count?

post #94 of 703
I have 8 tattoos, my ears slightly stretched, only to 10g, and my nose pierced. I had my eyebrow but took it out and hopefully will repierce it this week.

This is my newest tattoo. I got it this weekend at a Tattoo Expo here in town. I think crabs are cute, and I love daffodils, so I had them mesh both together.

I am thinking about a tattoo. I am currently tandem nursing my 4 yo and my 21 mo. My 4 yo dd nurses about 3x a week. My 21 mo ds nurses at least 2x a day, if not more. He is also still night nursing.

When I went to get a tattoo, they said I would have to stop breastfeeding because the carbon stays in my blood for at least 3 months, and it will get into my breastmilk. Can someone tell me about this?

TIA, and please point me in the right direction if this is not the place.
Hi! I'm new here and figured I would just jump on in.

My dh is a tattooer and he won't tattoo pregnant or breastfeeding women. I have never heard of the carbon issue before. His reason is because our bodies are already doing so much to grow a baby/produce milk, that we are going to be at a higher risk for infection or a tattoo that won't heal properly. He also wouldn't tattoo me until several months after my knee surgery - or people that are sick, for the same reasons.

Interesting.

I'm Kristi, btw. I have 6 tats and only a couple remaining piercings. I've got my labret, 2g ears and a nostril piercing. My navel, septum and multiple ear piercings have gone the way of the buffalo for now.

Glad to find this forum!

I want to join! I have several tattoos and someday when it's not a choice between food or ink I will get more. I also have had many body peircings both above and below the belt but today I just have 0 g plugs and my nose peirced.

Hey tribe people
I have to say that I wish I would have never gotten tattooed in the first place because now I want MORE and I am almost obsessed with getting more ink. As in I keep thinking of ways to get my hands on some cash that can just be spent on beautiful body art with no remorse. KWIM?
dang.
luckily my birthday is next month. Lets see if I can swing some new ink for that occasion.
Rileysmama I am sorry you feel alone most times...forget that crap, talk to us
