to get a little tattoo

and have your belly button pierced?

as i can't have a baby i think i'll do something rash! but i'm a big baby

also how much does it cost? i'm guessing it would be better if i didn't do it before i went on holiday in case of infection

:lipwobble: I love the look of belly piercings but just the thought scares me silly.

Tattoos depend on where they are I think :unsure: Where were you thinking of having it done :unsure:

i don't know, somewhere where i can cover it up for work and Jon's work evening dos but not somewhere where it'll only be ever seen by one person

My tattoo was cough250cough plus tip. I think it boiled down to $50 per half hour, as it took about 2.5 hours. Yes, pain will vary, I believe based on your pain tolerance and the position.
I'm not sure if you remember, but I did not cry or whine or flinch, but it hurt in some places big time!

That is exactly what I'd love to do....belly button pierced and a small tattoo.

I would rather get a painful tattoo than pierce anything. I don't have the backbone for it.

I would love a small tattoo on my inner wrist, but l am worried it would be painful, and my mother might die of shock.

My parents still haven't seen mine and they will likely not see it, till I get another. So two tattoos, oh yes, they are likely both to have heart attacks.

My other one is going to go on my other shoulder.

that also happened to someone I knew. It kept getting rubbed by their pants or getting caught on them, so they eventually let it go.

You can't have a tattoo before you go away cos you can't swim and stuff... so do it after your holiday if you get one. Start off small. Keep it moisturised with savlon.

CELLULITIS!!!!! :eek:

Also someone I know had their belly button pierced the day before a fencing tournament. Guess where they took a full hit in their first bout. :thud:

I had my belly button pierced 4 years ago and it didn'thurt at all.

The tattoo is a work in progress at the moment.Was supposed to have it done 20 Dec but it was too close to my op.Now i need to have the courage to go back down and rebook it.I have decided that once i lose my first stone on my diet i will treat myself to it.

I am also going to treat myself as well. I have 12 more pounds and then I'm going to get my second. :D
