    Im a freak i know,,,tattooed and pierced!

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    Good choice. :)

    I had my first tattoo at 40, a dragon on my upper arm,and 2 more after that. I would absolutely love more but now that I have an impaired immune system it would probably be a bad idea. :(
    The only one that was uncomfortable was on my wrist. When the bone started to vibrate it made me feel queasy.... :rolleyes008:

    The 2 most important factors are-
    Choose a design that you will still love in 20 years time.
    Go to the best tattooist you can find.

    Then.. Enjoy!! :D

Elders perceive tattoos and body piercing as aggressive, and feel threatened. When workers remove them, and cover the tattoos, things move much more smoothly.

    Cohort group effect more than anything else, however ALFs are the homes of the elderly and not the workplace of the caregivers, eh?
    Totally agree with that.

    I often wonder how the future will look when all the elderly are pierced and tattooed with names like Skyler, Brittany, Hunter and Heather. They will be cared for by more conservative youth with no tats and piercings named Mabel, John, Norma, etc.

    To me, a tattoo is an expression of individuality. I would never pick a piece off the wall. I don't want anyone to have what I have.

    I have emailed my picture off to be drawn up by the artist. He's on vacation this week and then it usually takes 2 weeks. He's a very busy man obviously. Am excited. :bounce009:

    I'm with you, Sarah. "Dare to be different" is a motto I've long held. I too, am a self styled freak, simply different topics of freakiness, eh?
