    I've only started recently (my most recent birthday in July) with my eyebrow piercing, but I've got plans for a 3-years-without-self-harm reward tattoo over some of my old scars. I just keep waffling on getting the art done for it because I have had the permanence factor impressed on me since I watched my mom get her pent when I was wee which means it has to be perfect but I also really really don't want to be a bother even when I'm commissioning stuff because I've ingrained Not Inconveniencing People.

    I've only got the standard one-per ear ear peircings. I wear really big earrings though. xD

    I kind of want another set in my ears, but I'm not really sure.

    I also really want a tattoo. But the one I had been thinking about getting for years is suddenly kinda eh to me.
    I have an idea for another one, but I haven't fleshed it out enough yet.

    @Re Allyssa big earings!:) and Id saygo for the second set they look super cute in my oppinion and it opens up all kinds of pairing options for your earings

    I've got a pair of piercings in each earlobe (so 4 in all). Used to have two up by the top of each ear too (so 8, had a whole 2x2x2 thing going on) but after a few years the four that went through cartilage started keloiding for no apparent reason, so I had to take those out (damn you body for betraying me with your healing factor!). I've been planning to start working one pair in my lobes up for gages, probably this summer.

    I've got a three or four tattoos that I really want, but I'm very specific about anything that's going on my body, so that's not happening until I have 1. the money 2. the time 3. an appointment with an artist whose work I like a lot. Designed some tattoos for others though.

    Those piercings sound like they looked badass :) too bad you had to take some out :( and gauges always make me laugh now because of how my mother reacted to me saying I wanted them, she freaked atarted yelling saying they are ugly it was a sight to see xD

    Re Allyssa Sylph of Heart

    Oh, that sounds cool and like it'd be a great idea! Also, congrats. :)

    Yeah! I kinda want them so I can also wear studs without having to compromise on the big earrings thing. I also like the look of those cuffs? The ones that have a stud in your ear and then a chain to the top. I actually got one! But unless I get a second hole, I have to wear it in stead of my others and I don't want to do that. xD
    I had some of these light/teal blue and gold metal feathers for a while. They rested on my shoulders, they were so long and I clinked when I walked. But then they got broken beyond repair. =( I'm compromising with some smaller ones for now, but they're not the same. I have those tear dropped shaped thread ones too, but I don't wear those daily because I've lost one in each pair so many times. xD I'm tempted to wear mix-matched ones. Actually, you know, I'm gonna start wearing those again. I have one complete pair, and then maybe I'll move to the mix-match.

    Oh, and I meant to mention: My parents do tattoos like whoa. My stepdad has a ton. He just finished a leg sleeve and is currently working on mjolnir on his thigh (the norse one, not the marvel one, as awesome as it is). My mom has one covering her c-section scars. And both he and her have matching celtic crosses. Apparently tattoos are addictive. :P

    @Re Allyssa the stud and nig earing combo is totaly what I had in mind! Those cuffs sound aweaome and I know what you mean about the feather, I love dangly Earings! I bet the Mjolnir is gonna look epic! Ive heard tattoos are addictice but I wouldnt know :)

    Thank you! I'm very proud of myself. The idea I'm pretty solid on, it's based on a sketch I did for my mom on a cafe napkin ironically around the same time I started self-harming: a human skull in profile with a butterfly perched on it, maybe with little tiny sprouts growing up next to it.
    I have a death thing. Even when I'm not suicidal the concept of death fascinates me on a religious/cultural/psychological level. (Actually, I don't talk about religion much because I'm nonstandard semi-agnostic pagan and it's really confusing to explain in brevity, but my deities of choice are almost all death/underworld/afterlife figures or tricksters. Morrigan's my main and I might later want to get some of her imagery because she represents a lot of important things to me, but I'm fond of Hades, Persephone, and Ereshkigal as well.)

    It was originally drawn with the intent of life/death standing in unity instead of opposition after mom lost a friend to an accident, but the imagery stuck with me and wouldn't let go and it's definitely going to be the first thing I put in ink on my body. Kind of... 'a part of me is dead but still I live.'

    I've got... a place in my head I built for guided meditation stuff. It's hard to explain because it's not just a "happy place" and I kind of built it to reflect my life. It's a sort of... image of my mental state, which I don't pretend is always pretty. But this way I can segment things off: this is the pit where my demons live. They can stay here. One of the major parts is the Graveyard of Me, where I kind of formally put to rest parts of my life so I don't get upset and longing for little girl I used to be before all the Horrible Shit happened to me, mourn her and move on, or hold my period of "everyone is a potential Enemy and will be treated as such" against myself because that Me is dead and a better Me lives. So the tattoo is supposed to be a kind of physical representation of the headstone for the Me Who Hurt Itself, here is its skull, and life lives around and moves on from the remains.

    Now I'm really considering also getting the Morrigan imagery... Research required.

    Also I'm losing coherence and 'pologize. It is bedtime

    @Lazarae the inspiration behind your tattoo is very deep and something I can absolutely respect :) dont worry about the complexity of religion, My big brother is Wiccan and a Cavalry scout in the army so theres plenty of compalexity to him and I understand that I dont understand so alls well :) goodnight!:)

    @Kijikun that looks so cool ::O

    I currently have four earlobe piercings. At one point I had six and an eyebrow piercing, but I got sick and the four earlobe piercings were done half a year after my eyebrow piercing, so I lost all five. I was most upset about the eyebrow one, because it was kickass. (I want to get another one). I had two more earlobe piercings made, and those have finally calmed down enough for me to consider getting more.

    I want to get a bridge piercing at some point.

    I want some sort of big tattoo on my back, but I'm not quite sure what exactly.

    A Breath symbol on my wrist, to show I am in charge of my own destiny.
    A pair of wings on my ankles, because I love the idea of flight, and because I would probably really love running if I didn't have a lousy constitution.
    An eye on the nape of my neck, because of reasons I can't really put into words at the moment.

    @whimsicalobservant Thats too bad about your piercings but at leasy youve bewn able to start again :) I love your tatoo ideas :) especialy the wings that would be too cute :) A few of my ideas are Love on my wrists for my friends who coud not overcome their dark times...Truth and lies along my collarbones. The stoey behind this idea plays into the abuse I endured and some things that happened to me when I was homeless as a teenager. I want loyalty across my back probably in old english because I like the way it looks, the inspiration for that was when almost everyone I had ever known turned their backs on me, those couple years helped forge the person I am now, I was in a very bad mental place but I was saved by new people who Loyalty and a great deal of my self worth and lastly I want something to commemorate a child that almost made me a parent...unfortunately that child did not make it to term and in ways it haunts me but all of my Ideas are based off of events that were difficult to overcome and taught me to better apreciate life *pulls away from keyboard for awhile*

    Next body mods I want to get over the next... 3 years?:

    Septum Piercing
    This on my right arm as an homage to painting when I get into art school
    This on my left arm and forearm to celebrate being a nature entity and to match the roses on my chest
    This on my right thigh to celebrate being genderweird and strong (as a reference to the Strength tarot card)... possibly to commemorate a transition-related landmark!

    I have many more ideas in a gmail draft, but these are the most pressing and important ones

    Another I've wanted for a while which is art-related is fancy-typography of the words CHOP WOOD - CARRY WATER on my wrists, which is a reference to this old story by @jacktrash and is my motto when I'm too upset over Not Arting Enough Because I Need To Take Care of Myself

    That's... actually a really good idea. If you don't mind, I might steal that. After the requisite mulling over, of course. Gods know I could use the reminder. (And it gives me something to put over my other scars. I want to put a tat on all of my sh regions.)

    Yes, that is the plan. I guess I wasn't specific enough in describing it! Also, HOW COOL that someone else has had the same idea!
