What tattoos and piercings do you have, what ones do you want to get, and, most importantly, why did you get them? And what you you think of tattoos and piercings? __ I have 8 piercings. Two lobe piercings in each ear, one cartilage piercing in the ear, two lip piercings and an eyebrow. I got the first pair of lobe piercings because I wanted to be like the "other" girls. I got the second pair of lobe piercings because I didn't like being like the "other" girls, and I got the cartilage piercing because I decided I liked piercings and it looked cool. I got my snake bites for the dual purposes of pissing off my parents and having snake bites. Unfortunately, I eventually took them out because I was trying to avoid being murdered by my best friend's mother, and because I was trying to get into a school. Recently, (as in, six weeks and two days ago), I got them done again, and I also got my eyebrow done at the same time as the second lip. I got the new ones done because I like breaking gender stereotypes, because I like piercings, and because I want to reclaim my old punk/goth identity which I left behind when I transitioned. Future: I may get a bridge piercing, and/or a septum piercing. I may get a couple of tattoos, I was thinking maybe an anarchy or feminism symbol on my back near my shoulder. I might also get tattoos to cover surgery scars. But thats later on when I have money and independence. I've also got a stretch kit for my ear lobe in the mail. What about you, the rest of EC?
