The fact of having a tatoo or a piercing is considered like something bad, but, have you ever wondered why?

Well, in the past japanese used to tatoo the prisoners and criminals, I think this is the reason why people still thinking that having a mark on your skin means that you are a bad person.
Also, the piercings and tatoos were using in the past for political, religious and cultural stuff, and sometimes the people attributted them magic and protection powers.
But actually that meanings have been lost, now, at least in mexican society, is common that if we see a person with a tatoo or a piercing we automatically judge them in a bad way.

In my opinion, having one of these things do not affect at all who you are. A tatoo or a piercing does not define your intellect, your capacity or what kind or person you are.
Everyone is responsible of their own body and you can do whatever you want with it, if you are happy with a tatoo or a piercing, why not to do it?
It is true that having one of these things have responsabilities and maybe it could have consequences, but that is something about you have to be aware and take the necessary preventions.
Actually I do not have any tatoos or piercings, I think I am too young for that, but maybe in the future I would consider to making one.

In conclusion, you are allowed to do whatever you want if you take the correct preventions and if it makes you happy, you define yourself by who you act like a person and not by your appearance.

I personally think that the piercings and the tattoos are something to represent your personality, to express your thoughts, to be who you are. I have 6 piercings and I honestly love them, they represent who I am, and what I like, I think tattoos are pretty cool and I am totally agree with this to express yourself or in case you wants them, I am also agree with that.

I don't have any liking for tattoos or piercings. I really dislike them to a great extent. They destroy the natural look you hold. And either one believes in this or not, But I must say that, Nothing can beat nature. Your natural look makes you the most beautiful. :)
And talking about medical point of view, they are really hygienic and infectious. You may catch serious diseases because your skin becomes susceptible and an open gateway for the germs. So, there's a big no from my side. :P
Try to love yourself and embrace yourself with all the flaws you have. Tattoos or piercings may look fascinating but they can never add to your beauty. Rather, I must say, that at one time in one's life , One may regret having them.

Yep. Truly. Beauty is purification of soul and heart. We should beautify these things rather than caking up fake mask of things on our body.

In my country some people have tattoos but it is not still a norm. It doesn't have the negative meaning which had in the past.
I personally like to have piercings on my body but not on my face!

One word. They're stupid.
I'm sorry, but in my opinion I don't think a bunch of tattoos could describe your personality. I'm not much of a fashionable person, and would love to stay the way I am. Unique. And piercings... Oh!
It worries me seeing today's teenagers roaming around with a bunch of earrings dangling from their ears. Well, think I'm boring, old school, whatever, I don't care. I think piercings and tattoos are just so stupid. I hate 'em as much as I hate shopping. Okay, a bit more, I can stand shopping but not piercings!!!
But I'm still a funky teen, no changing that!!! ✌
