Even though this is a little off topic, I thought it might fit, 'cause it seems people within the LGBT community are more willing to get body modifications. Let's face it, they're kind of fun even if you get something small for yourself. So, do any of you ladies have any body modifications? (This includes dying your hair, tattoos, piercings, ear stretching, etc.)
Right now I don't have a lot, but I have a few things planned for the future. I have one tattoo on my back that I designed and I have another larger one I plan on getting around my elbow.
I've also dyed my hair a couple of times, both blue and red, but I never really kept it for more than a couple of months because it's way too much work for upkeep.
I've been contemplating getting a double helix on my left ear. But, that's something I'm going to sit on for a couple of years, just to be sure I actually want it.
Annnd... lastly, at one point I had a lip piercing. I just could NOT handle it and ended up removing it. However, I'm very glad that I did it, because I'm pretty sure I would have kept wondering about it if I didn't.

I have 5 tattoos, and have my ears pierced, but that's about it. My tattoos have nothing to do with my sexuality, and I don't think I felt more open to getting them BECAUSE of my sexuality, but I do understand what you mean!
I have one tat and my ears pierced. Before kids,I had my tongue,naval,cartilages,and nipples pierced. Then,when I got pregnant with my first son,I took them all out except my cartilages, I just recently took those out,but want to do them again. Plus do a TON more tats,but, I have a coagulation disorder,and am on blood thinners,so, yeah,not happening any time soon
I used to have my eyebrow pierced and my bottom lip pierced twice, before kids. I only kept them about a month, though, because I had to start a new job and take them all out, so the eyebrow closed while I was at work, and I was too lazy to get it re-pierced. And I was glad to get rid of the snakebite piercings because I almost chipped my tooth biting down on the ring. OUCH. I have one tattoo on my lower right belly, but it got destroyed by pregnancy stretchmarks. I don't think I'll ever do anything else. I've been getting a lot of compliments on my natural hair color, so I don't hate it anymore. LoL. It hasn't been dyed in like 4 years.
I have the normal boring pierced ears thing...done when I was a newborn. Thanks, Mom! (I hate earrings)
And I have 3 tattoos. That's it.
And like Emma said, my tats have nothing to do with my sexuality. LOL My piercings were against my will! And my tats are the names of my daughters and the logo of my fave band And I wanna get more ink! The next one I want will be of Mickey Mouse's ears! Can't wait...yet, dunno when it'll get done!
And I wanna get more ink! The next one I want will be of Mickey Mouse's ears! Can't wait...yet, dunno when it'll get done!
Getting new ink is always so exciting! You'll have to show us whenever you decide to get it. I'm waiting a while before I get my next one, as well. I want to be around my goal weight before I progress with anything. So, right now I'm just continuing to mess around with the design.

Oh my.. Let's see..
I had my ears pierced when I was about 5. They fell out and closed up. Got them redone at 11 or 12 and not too long after, my sister's hair got tangled in one and she pulled it out on accident. I was terrified of putting earrings back in, so I didn't.. until I pushed earrings through the holes when I was 14.
Then started stretching those.. got my cartilage pierced around 15 but with a gun, so it shattered the cartilage and never healed.. removed that. Kept stretching my ears.. Biggest they've been is a 2g. Currently not doing anything because the earrings kept falling out, but I tend to stretch, unstretch, stretch them a lot.
Then the fun part..
Turned 18 shortly after DD was born. Got my lip pierced 2 months after she was born. Still have that. Got my 2nd holes in my ears (3rd technically, but the 2nd space has never been pierced. Piercer suggested I wait for that until I'm done stretching my firsts) and still have those..
Cartilage with a NEEDLE (best idea ever! SO easy) when I was 19, then my tongue at 19.. still have both of those.
And I got DD's name tattooed on my wrist
My mom always said "wait until you're 18" so I did..and I still got every piercing I ever asked her for and I love every single one. The lip will go eventually but I LOVE my ear piercings and I like the look of the tongue piercing.
As for hair dyeing.. Yeah.. I do/did that a LOT so we won't go there.. think every color you can think of aside from black or grey/white and I've probably done it.
I plan to get my ears pierced more and more tattoos for sure
Kailey(20) Cloth diapering, breastfeeding, babywearing, extended RF'ing, slightly crazy mommy to Ashlynn (3 * 1/28/10) and Matthew (10 months * 6/20/12)
okay so I have 14 tattoos and I had a lot of piercings (eyebrow twice, belly, tongue, tregus, lebret, nipples and ears a couple times) I had to take them all out for a surgery they had and I was too chicken to get them redone lol
