    Default First foray into tattoos

    Hi all,

    I'm very heavily pierced and have admired and longed for a tattoo for a long long long time.
    Lately I have been experimenting with transfers. It's been great fun trying different designs on different parts of my body.
    I've settled on the sort of thing I like and the places I like tattoos to be.
    I'm really into stars - particularly like the pic below -



    It's a massive commitment though - with piercings you can just take them out.
    I guess I'll continue as I am doing - maybe try having transfers 24x7 for a month or two and if I still like it then make it real.

    Also, anyone got any good sources for different transfer designs?
    Got: double snakebites|central lip|labret|2x centre tongue|philtrum|angel bites|smiley|septum|3 pairs nostrils|3 pairs eyebrows|bridge|15 & 16 (l&r) lobe/cartilage, rook, 2x tragus, 2x forward helix, conch (both ears symmetrical)|3x navel (72 holes in total)Want: Everything, slowly building up my piercings over time.Next up: venoms; maybe something genital

    Hi -yv- I thought that tattoo was real! lol..... I am really surprised that you have never been tattooed! I find tattoos easier than piercings. But, after the paw I am not so scared of piercings anymore. Please check your inbox as I may have an idea about transfers.
    Left side - Ear Lobes 1,2,3 Daith, Helix, Rook, Lower Conch and Double Tragus.

    Right side -Ear Lobes 1,2,3 Daith, "Paw" print piercing on the flat of my ear, Tragus, Nostril, Helix and Eyebrow.

    Retired - Right Eyebrow but, re-pierced next to the retired one.

    Quite a few Tattoo's.

    Google semi permanent tattoos there have been a lot created recently, some last 3 weeks+. Of course just make sure they're not PPD/black henna.

    If you're going for stars find someone who is really really good at them with a good portfolio showing examples of stars. Even some good artists can find geometric styles difficult.

    I held off getting a tattoo for ages - scared of the permanent commitment etc. At least with piercings you can take them out!

    I eventually found myself in a position where the decision was taken from me and I had to be tattooed but I don't regret it now. Only a handful of people know about it and fewer have actually seen it.

    Funnily enough I also tried the temporary tattoos a few years ago as a sort of dry run - hated every single one of them!

    Thanks for your mail Mazzy - I will reply to that via mail.
    Thanks for the info on semi-permanent Hazel - I quite like the idea of that - actually living with a design for a week or two rather than a day or two with a transfer. And thanks for the info about geometric designs. I thought they would have been easier but maybe that is the non-artistic engineer in me.

    And Dragonsoup - "the decision was taken from me" - I'm curious - please tell me more about this.
