its at least as much the meaning behind the tat as what it says.

Tats and piercings are really personal. That's cool, I respect that.

I got a tattoo at Mardi Gras many years ago. It is a wild, crazy story and one hell of a memory.

My personal belief, and anybody is welcome to disagree, is that a tat or piercing should have meaning to you. If it is just done as a whim at a strip mall, it's missing the point.

I have no problem with tats on any part of the body, except the neck and face. (again, my opinion only) It limits a person potential, not because of that person, because that's the way the world works.

Piercings. Yep. Sure. The nipple thing on a woman......Oh yea, I'm married. LOL

I don't like tattoos or piercings except ears. My husband feels the same way.

Other women can do what they want with their bodies.

I just got my first tattoo last month (at 42) and H was all for it. It isn't visible to anyone but us, so that's different than things like sleeves that he doesn't care for all that much on women.

HAHA- 2nd time!

All of mine have a special meaning behind them. The one on my back is a painting my gram drew and I got it right after she passed away and they added angel wings to it for my pap that passed away, the musical peice on my foot is part music notes and part piano keys because I play the piano and sing, and that is close to my heart, same with the clef heart on my inner elbow. My son's initials on my wrist- self explanitory, and my H's nickname, we've been friends since we were kids, so it was something that I wanted to do for the both of us. I really do want to get my nose pierced, but a teeeny tiny one that is barely noticeable. I don't know if I will actually go through with it though!

Thanks everyone! I was just curious as to what other people's opinions are of them.

My husband does not like tattoos or piercing's other then ears on a woman.

I do have one tattoo, I got it the day I turned 18. I think it was rebelling against my mothers wishes. I was proving a point that I was an adult and she should treat me as one. Well, it never worked and she still treats me the same 20 years later.

I've thought about getting another small tattoo over the years, but not anywhere where I couldn't hide it. I would get it solely for me and no one else. I've discussed this in the past and my husband of course supports me, even though he does not like tattoo's.

I waited a year before deciding and decided that I don't want another at this time. Maybe in the future. I really don't know. I'm open to tatto's. Piercing's beyond ears is not my thing either. My daughter just pierced her belly button, I'm not thrilled at all, but I did let her keep it. At least she didn't put her own tattoo on. That is a little more difficult to remove.

The tattoo I got at 18 is a dolphin on my ankle, the guy did a horrible job. I guess they've improved in the quality of tattoo's in the last 20 years.

and yes, if my gf had any i would know. i insist on seeing EVERY INCH of her.
this is funny, but I work at a church, and my lead pastor has tattoos, not where others can see, but he has them. I got one this summer at 48, my husband got 2 at 51~ we love them. Mine is a cross on the back of my neck with the hebrew word for "truth" under it. nobody will see it unless I pull my hair up and I want them to, even my hubby. I want another one on the inside of my arm, "Jeremiah 29:11 and on the other arm on the inside very discrete, Phillipians 4:13.

I also had my ears peirced this year as well, woopie~~!

Old school/old guy here. Mid 50s, no tats no piercings. Tats are a total turn off for me. People certainly have the right to do what ever they want in this avenue but for me, nah. Piercings don't much effect me either way. The only time they bother me is when dealing with a bank teller who "Can't anuthiate their wordths becuath the thstud in their tounnga ith to biga."

I have a tiny nose stud. I've had it about 8 years now and love it It causes no issues with boogers or nose blowing lol!

I have one tattoo on my side (I love it) and my husband has many tats...sooo sexy to me!

I love tats and piercings. You will attract a different set of men though, depending on the locations of the tats and stuff.

Just wanted a man's opinion other than my H's...
Well, Im kind of covered in tattoos, so my input may be moot.

I think Tats and piercings on a girl are very very hot.

Except the tramp stamp, get that thing covered up.
