i have to find a job...b/c im poor...and that means no more mods...i dont even have that many...but anythign else i get has to be covered...tat's and other piercings...0_o...nothing below the neck for me...so that means that im screwed until i can find a good job that will take a person with piercings...maybe i should just move to an aboriginal place where it's ceremonial and i'd be welcomed into their tribe...other than the fact that im light skinned...haha
Firstly - BME rocks. I go there daily. It's just amazing! And so informative and friendly!
Ahem. And so. Yar, LEGALLY, I've another 3months before I can get pierced. Since the law is 16 in Ireland. That said, I'm well ahead of the possy. I've... *counts* ... 7 piercings. 4 lobe, 2 helix in my left ear and my nose. I got my nose done when I was 11, and since then I've been 16, according to my piercer! Can't wait 'til I can actually LEGALLY get pierced! I'ma gonna wave my passsport at 'em just 'cause I can!!
I have more piercings, and some tattoos planned though.
1 more helix, for my b'day from my bf! heart
Sternum suface piercing.
Tattoos: Angel/devil piece around my belly button
Blue rose up my leg.
They're both drawn by me, 'cause despite the fact that I'm a dreadful artist, they represent and mean something to me so I feel designing them myself makes them more personal.
As for why...
With the piercings... I guess the only way to describe it is 'cause I know it's meant to be. I know that my body won't be.... complete until I get those piercings, and each time I get one it's like getting a little closer to my goal. I think every piercing I have is beautiful, and a part of me. They may not have 'sacred meanings' but they represent a part of me. It's like expressing yourself through dance, or art, or poetry. It's like being a dedicated cyclist or swimmer. It's like having a love for drama or science. You can't always explain why you do what you do, except that it feels right. It feels like perfection.
I have my nose pierced.
And when I adjust it in public people look at me funny and think I'm picking my nose.
Yeah, i feel the same way
Me too! And when I take it out to change it or anything, or if I see the principal in school (mods ain't allowed sweatdrop ) everyone stares at me like I just shot a puppy and I'm like..... what did I do? And everyone's just like "GROSS! That's SO Weird!"
Oddly enough, it's guys that seem to be bothered by it more than girls!
That said, I have a tendancy to fiddle with it in class, so it's no wonder it annoys my friends!
