Are Tattoos and Piercings big in the Vegan/Vegetarian community? like stretched Lobes and things of that nature?

I rock the tattoos and piercings and just was wondering how you guys do?

Tattoos are getting so mainstream that I almost feel more rebellious because I don't have one.



My ears are pierced twice and I sport a belly button piercing.

I'd like a tattoo but little ones like I want are so commonplace. I don't have anything except my ears pierced (i'm female btw)

Badger_Lady 05-13-2008 11:01 AM

Single hold in each ear

Belly button

Monroe (left side)

- used to have nose (right side) but it was uncomfortable

- used to have tongue bar but it started affecting the enamel on my teeth

Jehote 05-13-2008 11:02 AM

hah yeah same. Im the only one out of my friends that doesnt have one, yet im the weird-alternative one - who has wanted a tattoo WAY longer than them, by the way. Thiers are all things picked off the wall, I want something unique and big and expensive, so I'll wait instead of getting something just because and regretting it in 2 years.



and errr 19 piercings (tongue, l nostril, r tragus, both nipples, navel x3, ear lobe x4 each side)

none stretched though, id get too attached to jewellery haha and I like my collection of normal earrings. plus having 5 piercings in each lobe thered not be much room to stretch without losing one or two.

I do love the stone plugs though and get tempted to stretch just for them



*technically* i have 20 piercings. I got one of my earlobe holes repierced last week because the original one got torn about 5 years ago and was really wonky and had started bugging me. the old hole is officially retired though because it was riiighttt on the edge and looked crap!

Jehote 05-13-2008 11:18 AM

wow pirate you got alot of earrings! i forgot, i also have a 4 gauge dermal punch in my left cartilage. i forget i have it.

Scorpius 05-13-2008 11:27 AM

I think my current tally is 9 piercings and 7/8 tattoos.



I'd get more, but the Tattoo and Piercing Fund has miraculously run dry!



There are like a gazillion body mod threads here if you use the handy search feature.

jenna 05-13-2008 11:31 AM

yeah. i have a big tattoo and plan to get more.

lefty2026 05-13-2008 11:32 AM

I love my tattoo, especially because not many people even know I have it. I want one more low on my hip, so it won't show except in a bikini and maybe a "secret" peircing too. I drew the design for the tattoo forever ago, and I still think that it's really pretty and it kinda matches the first one. I used to have my belly button pierced, but it was annoying and my bf didn't like it, so I took it out.

starling 05-13-2008 03:53 PM

I have two tattoos and will be getting more. One is on my leg and one is on my back.

GhostUser 05-13-2008 04:04 PM

I want to get pilot wings one day But currently have none, and used to be against them.. but now I'm like, meh, whateva!

butterflytat20 05-13-2008 04:32 PM

i have a tribal butterfly tattoo on my lower back

jeneticallymodified 05-13-2008 04:35 PM

i always quite fancied having metal stars on my forehead like Vyvyan in The Young Ones. i doubt my mum would approve.

FB305 05-13-2008 05:36 PM

I had an industrial, had to take it off due to job reasons....

nookle 05-13-2008 05:39 PM

I think the 'mainstream tattoo' thing is easily combattable. Just don't get a mainstream tattoo in a mainstream place. So no roses on the hipbone, or butterflies on the collarbone or shoulder.

Teresa 05-13-2008 05:44 PM

You can't tell a vegan by tattoos and piercings. I have just four ear piercings in each ear, all in the lower lobe. Have had them since the early 80's. I considered a tattoo. I'll probably never do one though.

mrosev14 05-13-2008 05:56 PM

I don't think you can tell a veg*n by tattoos or piercings, since I had all of them prior to becoming a veg.



I have two tattoos, a breast cancer ribbon on my back, a treble clef on my hip. A hole in each ear, I have had my belly button pierced and a private piercing.

PepperBoi 05-14-2008 02:36 PM

oh my friend is a vegan (I'm vegetarian) and she has like a nose piercing a lower lip piercing a huge tattoo on her back and one on her foot and one on her arm and like 3 piercings on each ear. i don't have any piercings. or tattoos. I want my lip pierced and ears and i want a tattoo!

cstadt 05-14-2008 02:53 PM

I have a small tattoo on my foot

and 12 piercings, if you count an Industrial as two piercings

I had my tongue pierced once, but it was starting to develop scar tissue

and I figured it really wasn't worth it



my ears also used to be gauged to 00's but since graduation I've taken them out

they're still a little stretched but I wear regular earrings in them now



Next piercing, back of my Neck/Nape-- a surface piercing.

They aren't done in Alabama or so I'm told

so it'll be a while

or I'll make a trip to Georgia

Jehote 05-14-2008 02:58 PM

hey all, i didnt mean if you can tell a vegan by piercings. i was just wondering if alot of the people in the Veg*n community were tattooed and poked.

totally not trying to lump you all together!

J

jenna 05-14-2008 03:02 PM

yeah, the tattoo i have now i got way before i became a veg*n.



but i'm definitely going to be getting more.

Kenickie 05-14-2008 04:03 PM

i have a new orleans related tattoo on my wrist. i have holes for monroes and lip piercings.



i plan on one day being atleast 75% covered in tattoos.



although, the lobe gauging thing...my boyfriend danzig stretches his ears, and he got them to the point where i can stick 4 fingers (thumb not included) through them, and then one ripped.



sooooo tonight i'm going home and doing some effing field surgery. your ears can only take so much, yo.

*does want* I could see them being a bit of an issue with hair in the wind though.



I've just got ear lobe piercings (one in each ear), my friends are trying to persuage me towards a lip ring and a tat i've wanted for a while now but i'm a big wimp.

xNewNoisex 05-14-2008 07:33 PM

I intend on getting tattoos, one of which is a vegan straight edge tattoo on my calf involving the Earth Crisis logo of two crossed wrenches, as well as an anarchist chest piece with the anarcho-syndicalist star surrounded by images of revolution.



And hopefully, this weekend, I'll be getting my ears pierced so I can start to gauge them.

i'd wear a split/faux ring for a good month before you decide on getting a real one. i got a labret peircing in '98 when i was 18, and was all dead set for a ring, but got it peirced with a stud (the peircer i saw doesn't put rings in labrets right away). and when it healed, i tried a ring, and it drove me mental within minutes. you can't shut your gob properly, smoking is just weird- you have to stick your fag above the ring, or in one side or the other like a cowboy poser and close your mouth in a weird way. drinking is a whole new challenge best accomplished with a straw if you don't want twin coke stains down your chin and tshirt, etc. needless to say, i went straight back to the stud.



similarly with the tattoo, be sure and think ahead- would you still be ok with it as an old lady. i got mine in '98 as well, thought it was the coolest thing ever, had wanted it for years just like the labret, and within 3 years really started to hate it.

codemonkey 05-14-2008 08:32 PM

The main reason I've never gotten a tattoo is because I get bored with stuff quickly.

Animosity 05-14-2008 08:43 PM

I have my lobes pierced, I have 5 cartildage piercings, I have my left nostril pierced, I have my right eyebrow pierced, I have an 'industrial', I'm geting my second lobe piercing replaced, It was done a little off. I'm also getting my lip done professionally, I pierced it myself when I was a dumb little 12 year old. I plan on getting a 'tragus' like surface piercing, An 'anti-eyebrow', A rook, An 'orbital', And eventually, When i'm at the size I want, A navel. I'm a bit of a piercing 'addict'.



As for tattoos, I have two ideas that I like, I'm not sure if i'll add to the list eventually or not.

yeah Ive had my labret pierced since November and cant bloody stand a ring.

Ive worn mine twice!

second time was out drinking and it took me ages to get used to that haha. I did manage to pull wearing it but dont remember whehter that was difficult or not hehe.



my Ex wears a ring all the time and you dont really notice it on the other person though. i DID chip my tooth on it though crashing into his face drunk once though! My dentist insists it was my tongue bar but It wasnt =(
