...?

I don't understand body-art... Extra ear piercings, nose piercings, permanent tattoos...
I don't get any of that. My friend has gotten her nose pierced, it looks good though - she is so excited about it... I wish I knew why.... *sigh*

I am not sure about extra piercings, but I do have a tattoo.
I got something that meant something to me so that when I am 100 and someone is wiping my arse I will still not be ashamed of it!

i dunno, piercing my nose is something i've wanted for a long time, but haven't had the courage because of my mom.
as for a tattoo, i cannot imagine something i believe in so much that i'd like to make it an inseparable part of my anatomy. :) you're right, permanence scares me!

piercing is fun...a little pain but after effects are good. i would like to get a tattoo, husband would not let me get one.

p.s: i can read your posts during work hours but cannot comment on them due to some firewall (surprising nah) and after work u know the drill.

A colleague just got her upper lip pierced. Surprisingly, she's not writhing in pain each time she sips something hot.

She does a great job hiding her imperative regret - i must say!

All in all, the body shud be left alone!

Pixie said...

@Gautham: Upper lip! Good Lord! That must be seriously hurting her...
I don't get the whole hurt yourself-get-tattoo-piercings-done thing.

@Wisegirl: I just don't get the part as to how you can hurt your body with pointy-sharp things at weird places!
I'm disagreeing with quite a few people on this topic!

Ahem. I have a tatoo. A small permanent one. The husband and I got it done together on a whimsy when we were on our honeymoon. We have each other's names on it (cheesy I know, but we were so in wuvve those days :)

It wasn't more painful than waxing/threading and it healed so fast. Now I look at it and it never fails to bring a smile to my face because it brings back such good memories of our times together. It's like my talisman when we fight.

I am so ready to do the navel piercing thing after I finish delivering and IF my stomach comes back to shape. (A big IF!)

It's just a wacky personal thing. You either get it or you don't :)

Pixie said...

@Poppins: Wow! You have a tattoo?!!
I do agree that its a whacky personal thing!!!
Good to see you writing again :-)
And CONGRATULATIONS!!
