Thread Name: Sorta BS: Tattoos & Piercings
Subject: RE: Sorta BS: Tattoos & Piercings
I have seen some wonderful tattoos and in a way, it breaks my heart. I don't think art should be made in order to deteriorate. That's what happens when a young person gets a wonderful tattoo. Look at the old codger's arms, where the lines have thickened and blurred and the design can no longer be seen. Some day that will happen to your beautiful phoenix and the golden carp curled round your shoulder. Wait. develope your taste. Work on your designs. Get it done when you're 40.

Piercings: Some are ok. Some aren't. That's your business. But the one through the bridge of the nose IS INSANE!!!!!!!!!!! At least one person I've read about has died from infection. The upper nasal passages are a highway into the brain. Don't do it.
