My biggest tat when it was fresh this past October. Don't have current, healed pics. Her face is lighter and more blended now and the eyes still look amazing. Trying to get in for my first touchup session. :) This one has a lot of meaning for me and was a custom design by my very talented tat artist, Gus Ballman.

 

My only other tat is a small one across my left wrist that says, "glosoli". It's a song by an Icelandic group called Sigur Ros. I have another tat planned, quoted, and ready but the artist I'm working with on that one is located in Hollywood so it may be awhile. It's an awesome 6x6 or so piece by my fav comic artist, Simon Bisley. It'll go on the outside of my left upper thigh. I have ideas for a very large back piece but that'll probably be quite awhile away. I want to get my other foot done, I have some ideas to go with my left foot. I feel a little odd about putting something on the right side of my body however, I feel compelled to put them on the left. I'm toying with the idea of getting a realistic looking bumble bee on in inside of upper my left forearm. That's the only one I've thought about doing in color so far.

 

I'm keeping future career in mind while beginning a collection. I want to be mindful of what can be comfortably covered when needed.

thats a really nice one!

 

I find it hard to find a good portrait artist

 

The place where I was pierced has done beautiful tattoos, Im looking more into getting what I want

 

My idea is a rib wrap tattoo, so from hip to underarm, as a scrolly kind pattern but have my son's hospital band (med tape, blood on it and all) in the middle with his name on it that way

 

either the band by itself, a baby pic of him lying down with the band on, or just the top of his hand with it around his wrist

 

 

 

dont mean to bombard the thread with my face, but this one shows my piercings a bit better than the other lol just messier hair, thats all. I briefly had my eyebrow but it got rejected when i was 15 and i havent thought it get it again in case it is pushed out 

 

Still have my piercing jewellery in my lip, but aim to get a stud that matches my nose in soon 

 

But I am SOOO in love with my lip piercing, probably explains my look! look! posts blush.gif

I haven't been on the forums in FOREVER, but I figured this was the place I wanted to pipe back up in, hehe  :)  

 

Right now I have 10 piercings in my ears, a nipple piercing, and a very... girly piercing.  In the past I've had piercings in my bellybutton, eyebrow, nose (which I pierced myself), lip, tongue... and I think that's it.  I'd love to have my nose pierced again, and possibly get my other nipple done.  It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, but I was definitely more fragile in that healing process than I was after giving birth  lol!

 

As for tattoos, I only just started about a year ago.  I have a cherry blossom tree on my shoulder blade (in purple instead of pink, just in case I were to have an allergic reaction... I have sensitive skin and it was a BIG tattoo), a sparrow above my elbow, a lotus on my shoulder, and the word "Imagine" on my wrist.  They all have intimate meanings for me, and I'm always wanting more.  Talk about addictive!  If anyone's interested in seeing pictures, I can dig some up  :)

Have been meaning to post here - I have three tattoos, all black ink, that my son loves to trace with his fingers and kiss. smile.gif  His eyes get so big looking at them and he smiles like, "wow this is sooo cool!"  He also loves to poke his finger through my gauges.  Just have them at 0s now (used to be 00, but one lobe was torn when pierced, so when stretched that far it was so thin it was translucent - yikes! - also used to have my second piercing in my ears at 4s, but that was just too much clutter wink1.gif).

 

Have sooo many more tattoos planned out (including an amazing back piece) but all are on hold indefinitely due to 1.) financial situation of being a SAHM (lucky to make enough to get by doing this, definitely don't have tattoo money leftover!), and 2.) DH's STRONG objections to tattoos in general (I should have completed it before I met him, then it would be perfect!!! orngtongue.gif Hoping to wear him down on this over time...).

Has anyone pierced themselves? Any good guides to self piercing? I have a kit with five needles and five captive beads and corks and sterilizing surgigel and hibicleanse. I am hoping to do my belly button, my ears, and my nose. I should just go to a shop but what's the fun in that...

Do navel piercings and babywearing mix? I'm thinking the belt from a ssc or wrap would rub against it too much. Did anyone get a navel piercing and babywear for a lot of their day?

Thanks

My dd just walked in on me piercing my nostril. She said I have a big metal booger, I laughed and blood spurted out around the needle. I think it kind of scared her, but when I was done she asked if it was her turn now.
I really want to get my navel done now but I'm not sure if it will be a good mix with babywearing...

I just got a new tattoo this week. I also just stopped taking my birth control this week because we going to start trying for a third soon.  Is it ok to get pregnant whenever after getting a tattoo?

Hi, all! Looking for some advice (or just for you ladies to confirm what I already know.) I got a small tattoo on my wrist a few months back. It's just the word peace. The artist told me to come back in a few weeks because wrist tattoos almost always need touch ups. It most definitely does need some touch ups, but I've been putting it off for a while. Well now I'm about to move out of state, so figured I should probably do it before I go. Only problem is, I just found out I'm pregnant. It's just a tiny little bit of touching up, but I'm guessing the no tattoos while pregnant rule is there for a reason. It's disappointing, because it's really looking bad and I have no idea when I'll be back in the area. I probably should just wait though, right?

To answer my own question about navel piercings and babywearing, ouch! I had to stop using the ergo for about a month and use our didymos and only use chest ties. So yeah if you are an avid babywearer make sure you have some carries that do not put pressure of the wrap or ssc on your navel...

On another note I soo want to get a tattoo this year. Or maybe modify the one I've had for a decade, lol

I was about four hours into a twenty-hour tattoo when I found out that I'm pregnant. I didn't know you couldn't get tattooed while pregnant, so I asked my husband (a former piercer and tattoo artist) why that is. He says it temporarily weakens your immune system, and puts stress on your body because it's trauma. He did not think getting a touch up right now would be a good idea, so probably best to wait.
