  • Tattoos & Body Piercings

    I challenge anyone to show me one (...just one) tattoo or body piercing that has improved just one individual.

    Tattoos are expensive and look terrible. After some years have passed, tattos look really bad.

    Red...you are gorgeous, but get rid of that tattoo, get a good agent and go to Hollywood!!!

        Hi P.J.,
        Have you ever heard the saying, beauty is in the eye of the beholder?

        I have one tattoo, a swallow, on the fleshy part of the back of my right hand, near the base of my thumb.
        I had it done in 1953, in Denmark, when I was in the Royal Navy.
        It cost the equivalent of 15 US cents, hardly a large sum, even in 1953.
        My hands are large and muscular, and have seen plenty of sun and hard work, but my swallow is still clearly defined.
        She has a name too, Scheherazade.
        I have never regretted having this tattoo, and, if I had my time over again, that's one thing I would not change.

          I doubt anyone who gets a tattoo or a piercing really cares whether P.J. approves of it or whether P.J. thinks it improves them or not.

          People do things for their own reasons. Not for you to judge.

They're about expression. Of course, it's your opinion how they look. I personally have two tattoos and I love them both. They're a way of expressing myself. Reclaiming my body, if you will. I wouldn't get rid of them for anything. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                Tattoos disfigure a work of art, your body. There are plenty of ways to express your outlook on life without defacing your skin. Otherwise you are expressing the same attitude of textile people who think they have to wear something to express themselves.

                  I'd suggest anyone considering a tattoo, first try out a lasting, but non-permanent marking.

                  I admit I have no understanding of the attraction of tattoos or piercing. Non-permanent decorations I think, though, could be quite appealing.

To the person who gets one(preferably after much reflection on why and what they want)it may enhance that "work of art".

                    Does it express the same attitude of textiles? I doubt it, since a tattoo doesn't conceal the form of the body as does clothing.

                    The point being, it is an individual choice. Just as a body piercing is an individual choice. Neither cause any harm to others and thus are not moral wrongs. You may not like them, but I doubt you are in any danger from a tattooist or piercer forcibly dragging you in and putting their mark on you.

I have both and love them very much and plan on getting another tattoo and piercing. We are entitled to do as we please with our bodies just as you are entitled to be a nudist, shave your face, or cut your hair; all of which are ways of expressing yourself.

                      If you don't like people's tattoo or piercing, do us and yourself a favor, shut up about it. You hear that too Trail?

Just look at the popularity of body painting at most nudist gatherings. A tattoo is just a permanent form of body painting. Yes, they do fade, although the modern inks don't seem to fade as quickly as the older inks did. Piercings, done correctly, don't change at all with time.

                          Scars disfigure the body too and I would gladly get rid of all of them if I could but the tattoos will stay. I waited until I was 49 to get my first tattoo (7 in all now) and the only ones I could do without are the 3 I had for radiation the others all express something special in my life that I always want to remember and share.

[/QB] <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Regrettably, there are some people who insist on judging others, while demanding that their activities not be judged. This is particularly appalling in the nudist community which for years has said to the textile community, "let us practice nudism in peace because you have no right to call it immoral or wrong..." Yet, there are members of the nudist community who are quite happy to condemn various practices by other nudists as being "wrong or immoral"

                            Hypocrisy is not limited to the textile community.

                              What do you expect from a new member...Might as well get use to it..No matter what you do in life someone will find something bad to say about it. I have several piercing now and like all of them. Some don't understand why but really, Nothing needs to be explained. Just do it.
