My feelings have changed toward tattoos somewhat since I have gotten older. For a long time I wanted a tattoo . . . not something big and outlandish . . . I wanted a small yellow rose to memorialize the 3 babies that I lost due to miscarriage. I wanted it over my left shoulder blade (on the back). Now, I don't know if I want that anymore or not. The reasons for this are that one day (probably sooner that I'd like at the rate that my dsd is headed) I'm going to be a grandmother . . . all of that skin is going to start to sag at one point, too. The same thought on piercings . . . I have two holes in each ear and don't really want anymore. I normally wear earrings in both every day. But as far as piercing a bunch of other things . . . I don't think I would do that. Again, my dsd has her belly button pierced and just got her cartiliage done in her ear . . . she swears that when she's 18 she's doing her tongue . . . I don't know if she will or not . . . I just think that our body belongs to God and we set an example for our kids . . . I would be horrified if Ashley (who's 7) told me that she wanted to pierce her tongue . . . I already had huge problems with her when Stephanie did her belly button . . . which her mother took her to do when she was 15!! Trying to explain to her why I didn't approve was long and exhausting! I guess it's hard to teach our kids to "do as I say and not as I do"

I personally love tattoos and piercings, I think they are a wonderful way to express yourself. Piercings are harmless IMO, when you are done they simply close up. I've had my navel, my cartlidge, and my tongue pierced and I have since taken them out and you wouldn't even know I had them done to begin with. There was no real reasoning why I did them, just wanted to at that time. Tattoos I think require more thought and meaning because they are forever. I have a small rose on my shoulder blade that looks like it is pierced through my skin, and it is special to me because it was my first tattoo I got with my childhood friend. My 2nd tattoo is a heart with wings on my lower tummy and it's not as special, and it's a little stretched. I got it with a friend when we went out dancing one night. I'm eventually getting a third, but waiting a little bit to be sure of what and where I want it.
