unfortunately, not too much you can do to remove a tattoo at home (Safely anyways)

However, lazer removal is a lot more effective at removing DIY tattoos than professionally done ones- the beams is able to reach the pigment more readily and break it up as they tend to be in more superficial layers of skin and done with India ink, which is much easier to remove and be absorbed by the body than true tattoo pigment

It IS expensive, though, and rather painful (I've had a couple of mine zapped and it's no walk in the park) but after a couple sessions, you should have good enough results to at least make for a good cover-up.

MittensKittens- Honestly it is better to save up and get a good cover up, then it is to have another bad coverup you hate, that will force you in the future to spend even more money on laser removal. I say this because I have seen several people travel down this path, and most who try the cheapest fix end up the most disapointed.

I also have to say I had a home due tattoo I also HATED and wanted gone, I used makeup to cover it up and jewelry. I thought about cheap fixes, but decided to wait until I knew what I really wanted to do and in the end I did get a cover up and I am so happy now! I am glad I waited even though I did really hate the piece for the years I waited.

Ok, talk to me about piercings and hospital jewelry policy. I will be giving birth in a hospital (an open-minded place, but still a hospital), and if I remember correctly, you usually have to take metal jewelry out before being admitted. This isn't so much a problem with my nose and lobes, as I have glass jewelry for there, but I'm wondering about my rook piercing, which has a titanium barbell in it.

What have you had to do in terms of hospitals and your piercings? Should I just get a PTFE retainer for the rook? Will that be enough?

I don't want to lose my piercings.

I think it might depend on your caregiver. When I gave birth (ages ago), I had many piercings, including a hood piercing. The hospital I had my son had a no piercing policy on the books, but my doctor told me not to worry about it (because it was a huge concern of mine)... the nurses just took the word of my doc and let it slide.

I currently have a hoop in my nose and 1 tat on my ankle. I have been obsessed with getting another tatoo since my dd2 was born. I recently had a lotus flower done with henna and am thinking about getting this for a tat sometime very soon!

I just have a question for the heavily tattood mamas.....

I have been pretty heavily tattood for the last 10 years, so you would think that I would get used to the looks and comments, but truth be told... I haven't gotten used to it.

Just today I had been at work for only 2 hours and had one customer call and ask if I was the little girl with all the tattoos (Irk!), and another customer come in shortly after and just start staring at me like I'm some kind of zoo animal and even made stupid comments. How do you deal with this? The rude comments? People who won't allow you to assist them? etc. etc.

DP has it in his head I got tattoos for attention. NO! I got tattoos because I think they are beautiful, and I got them for me! Yes, I know they are out there for everyone to see, but sometimes I just want to be rude to people who forget that I have a name, or who refuse to interact with me. Luckily, it's not in my nature to be rude lol

I'm just curious how you handle these situations if you even let it get to you.

BTW, I have two full sleeves and a large chest piece that seem to be my attention getters in case anyone was wondering.

I'm sleeved as well and get the comments too. Some pretty stupid and insensitive things have been said. I often don't know what to do either. I work from home, so I don't have to deal with it in a workplace but I have to deal with it everywhere else. My first line of defense is just outright ignoring it or staring right back. I think that some people will just never get it. If I'm in a situation where I can't/won't be rude back, I try to make light small talk about it so they realize I'm just another person who happens to just be more colorful. My husband has asked me to cover when we're at my son's school because he doesn't want to be discriminated against. I can understand his point to a degree, but it's still frustrating.

I have never been asked to cover for any reason, but I do find myself covering so that I don't have to deal with the crap. Also, when spring breaks after wearing long sleeves for 6 months and now it's time for short sleeves, I start dreading it!

I'm happy with who I am and how I look, I just wish people would be a little more considerate and that I would be a little less sensitive

I miss having body mods. In the past I had a 4g tongue stud, a labret, a madison, belly button and both my nipples (one had a cross). Now I have no metal in me. Oddly I've noticed my love for punk and metal to be fading since I've removed my piercings. Perhaps I should experament and see if adding some metal to my body will bring more metal back into my life.

Hi everyone!

I joined mdc a couple months back looking for support while I was going through a miscarriage. Its been a hard time in my life, but I've been feeling better lately. One of the things that has brought me the most closure was getting a memorial tattoo for my lost little lima bean. I've always LOVED tattoos, but never got one because I feel that a tattoo should have some significance, and no event in my life has compared to the loss I felt as a result of the miscarriage. I got it done a little over a week ago and I am so happy with it. It is tucked right between my breasts, all safe and snug and always with me. I love it and wanted to share. Here's a pic that was taken a day or two after I had it done. The black is now a the soft grey color that I wanted, and the heart really pops.

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.

The mystery of life isn't a problem to solve, but a reality to experience.

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.
