    So not much going on the board right now, so figured I would start a new topic. Obviously with more skin showing on vacation, more ink is visible. My wife says "Omg i feel like I am the only person without a tattoo". Obviously that's not true, but some of us have defiantly have more then others.

    Maybe we can use this thread to share pictures and have some discussion. I also figure piercings too, but pretty sure most of the good ones would break the nudity rules of the site (so whatever you post, don't forget about those).

    No tatts yet although we've both considered them. Oh deal has been piercings. Lady went first with nipple piercings and traveled south to belly button, but after a while gave up on that one. We just didn't like the look with clothes. A tight top or dress kind of looks awkward with jewelry poking out. Then lady got her hood pierced or as Sara 69 calls it........a Mexican GPS! Not to be outdone Tramp got his fair share! There is a certain addiction to being pierced, it's an addiction to the needle. Seriously. No one would look at either of us and think that couple is pierced. That's part of our addiction/fascination! Tramp has been pierced 26 times in his "junk"! I know........that's nuts. Yes, those too! Lots bothered my teeth. Can I say that here? Oh crap! Tramp is down to 9 now as an MRI required the removal of all. He is content with those he has but is still considering others.


    Oh there are stories to tell, but probably not appropriate to share here!

    Bottom line is none of our vanilla friends from our vanilla life have a clue!

    I know that doesn't sounds super pleasant, but i guess you get used to it and/or even like it. I think I crossed my legs while reading.

    Hmmmm I wonder why is this area of the board so unpopular? Do people just save a link to the main TTR area and never deviate from that section?

    O well I tried haha.

    The thing that drew us to body piercings is that no one gets to see them as we walk down the street or to work etc., unless they get to know us really well.

    People always remark about the pain we must have endured. I really don't think that piercings even begin to compare to the "burn" of being tattooed. With mostiercings the pain is sharp........immediate........and in most cases ......depending on the location is all but gone within the hour. There are some exceptions of course. And the pain level also really depends on the talent of your piercer..........and his or her luck at avoiding the bigger nerves.

    I know it's difficult to understand, but the pain really becomes quite a rush!

    And.............if you tire of a piercing in a specific place......just take it out and no one will ever be the wiser!

    Yea piercings defiantly have their advantages. In my younger days I had my eyebrow and my tongue pierced twice(yes I know it sounds bad, but I swear it was cool back in 2003). Being able to just remove the unwanted piercing is nice when you tire of it, or a fad dies. Elyse previously had her nipples pierced, and she she said the pain wasn't all that bad.

    Tattoos are much more permanent. So I always tell people to really think hard for an extended period of time before getting one. Especially if it is in a visible location. I waited until I was 30 before I got any work you could see in a tee shirt. I wear a mandatory shirt and tie at work everyday now, so it doesn't matter what I have anymore.

    As far as the pain, I don't really think they hurt that much. I almost look forward to it, but then once it begins I am pretty neutral and just zone out. But like after the 7th hour I think it's starts getting annoying and look forward to it being done.

    Tattoo's become an addiction, once you get one you are already thinking about the next one... I agree 100% with Scuba Steve.....I got my first impulse one when I was 22-23? and was 40 when I started in on the rest of them.....take lots of time and research what you want and where you want it.........my suggestion would be to contemplate a theme that you can just keep adding to (Sin City sleeves are awesome! btw). As well as the artist, although they all have to start sometime I would just prefer that they not start on me LOL My wife and I have almost all of ours done by a friend from North Carolina.... he comes up once sometimes twice a year to New Hampshire and does all of our work at our house.

    Hmm not seeing an attached pic (that is if you put one). Sometimes pictures just don't show up for me though. I think it is a weird computer thing when I am at work.

    Did look though your album pics though. GP looked pretty nice, but didn't look like there was anyone there. Maybe you made the switch to TTR.
