Body Art: Tattoos and Piercings

I think maybe it’s something like “I can’t deal with pain very well, so I don’t think I’d be able.”

That said, there are numbing creams they have now that make it almost painless.

If I want to show something I’m passionate about I’d buy a T-shirt :-p

I considered getting an Utena tattoo until I realized how fucked up it would be to have the Rose Seal permanently on you. Lately I’ve been trying to come up with the right Bruce Springsteen-based design. It seems unlikely that my Springsteen fandom would embarrass me, even if I let up on it a little over time.

Maybe I’m super weird, but I almost, a tiny bit, kind of want a cutie mark tattoo on my butt.

Not going to happen. :wink:

But the interest is not 0%…

I also lost my wedding ring like a year and change ago, and I’ve decided to get a ring tattoo to replace it.

That seems like a slippery slope where we all find out after that you have a rainbow dash body pillow that eats dinner with you.

Not really, particularly if you are getting a larger tattoo. That shit will hurt for days.

For those worried about the permance of a tattoo. Have any of you gotten a Henna tattoo? They look pretty cool. The art seems to be mostly floral like in design though. With some geometric stylings in there as well. Like they are using a spirograph toy to make them.

The hummingbird and honeybee are kind of like my parents’ spirit animals. One day I would like to get them tattooed on my body. I feel like I should consult a tattoo artist before deciding where and what style to use.

Good aftercare and some anti-histamines(if you’re the lumpy sort) can mitigate that somewhat, but you’re right, it’s still gonna suck for a few days.

@Rym I will pay for a cutie mark tattoo so long as the Crew can have input in its design.

I do wonder in which form a future tattoo will take. Will it be a display technology or a type of actual embedded smart pigment? Will we want people to still be sitting there with needle guns or would we prefer if you can get it printed on via some kind of device?

There will be a display seamlessly embedded in your skin. It will be invisible when turned off and controlled digitally. The art will be made with Photoshop. I imagine it will be bio-luminescent.
