I will be up front. These things are not for me. I decided when I was very young that tatoos were not something that I would ever be getting after seeing some on some relatives. I know that they have become very popular. What makes someone want to have tatoos on their body, gauges in their ears so that the hole is an inch in diameter, or piercings? I can understand a single ear piercing because clip-ons are just awful to have and the hole goes almost completely unnoticed without earnings. For those who have them, did you consider how age or weight gain/loss will impact their design?
