I have a tattoo on my chest that says YOUR NAME. It has won me quite a bit of money in bar bets.
I'm just kidding. No tattoos, no piercings.
In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; July 5, 2005) It's good to see that the WWE isn't backing away from Batista or Cena. There's still some questions lingering over a few of the draft moves they either made or didn't make (Jericho being a prime example), but the stage is set for a solid run to Summerslam that may send the indicator down. The longer Triple H stays away is also a plus...

This right here is the key I always tell people when they ask if they should get a tattoo. I wanted and waited well over two years before getting both of mine.
Piercings: 5 holes in left, 2 holes in right. Only 3 holes have something in them though (On Right, my lady's old eyebrow ring in the bottom lobe hole, and an orbital ring going twice through the upper cartiladge area.
Tattoos: Three elephants trunk to tail across the small of my back, and three Barrel O' Monkeys hanging down my right calf.
I'm pretty suprised there's been no pictures yet either.

I got both of my ears pierced as a young girl (but was not forced to by my parents)...later, in college, I got another piercing put in my upper left ear cartilage...
I have 5 tattoos... My first was a design I came up with--a circle of three manatees with the Pisces sign in the middle (middle of my lower back). My second was a green Celtic shamrock on my left shoulder blade (I was born on St. Patrick's day). Third was two tulips (color) with the Japenese characters for "angel" and my best friend's initials (she died in a car accident when I was 16) on my right shoulder blade. Fourth and fifth were done at the same time--a bear with a fish in its mouth (black only) on the outer part of my left wrist and a variation of the Pisces symbol (black) on my inner right wrist.
And there will be more...it is an addiction.
As far as the "off topic" topic of regretting it when I'm older, if I live long enough to be getting sponge baths in a nursing home, I will be happy...and not give a rat's @$$ about my tats... I can assure you

No piercings for me, but I have two tattoos. Marvin the Martian on my right shoulder (which I love) and Odie on my left (Which I still like, but would be better if I added to it with the drawings I have, but I am too lazy).
I still remember my Mom giving me a lecture about getting a tattoo and saying that it wasn't something that she could do.... and now she has five!

2 Tattoo's, both on my lower back. the on on the left side is an abstract black symbol for Sagittarius and the other is the Japanese symbol for Tiger, my Chinese horoscope... I like the Japanese symbol better than the Chinese symbol.
My next one is going to be a pin-up style Greek Goddess in black and grey....
I have one tattoo on my left forearm: a cross with the words "JOHN 3:16"...I want to get it either touched up, removed, or done over. I haven't exactly decided.
I have one earpiercing: it's my left lobe. I had it done in 1999.
I've seen 14 movies so far this year: Because I Said So - (2*); Borat - (5*); Children Of Men - (4*); Die Hard 4 - (5*); Evan Almighty - (3.5*); Fantastic Four 2 - (4.5*); Hairspray - (5*); Harry Potter 5 - (4*); Knocked Up - (4*); The Last Mimsy - (4*); Mr. Brooks - (4*); Shrek The Third - (3*); Spiderman 3 - (3.5*); Transformers - (2*)

Amen. I have seen more babies (two or less) going through the agony of getting pierced by some teenage clerk at the accessory boutique. They appear terrified. I cringe when I see a baby who can't even crawl with pierced ears. Our daughter had to wait until her mom and I thought see was old enough to properly care for the piercing which was 14 in our opinion. The earrings mean alot to her and she is quite responsible with them.
And she had them done at her pediatrician's office in a hygenic setting. They also put the fear of God into her about proper care while the holes in the lobe adjusted.
On a happier note, I thought I saw a news story that they are about ready to release new inks that can easily and effectively be removed by laser.

On my left leg, I have a ying yang of fire and water with my wedding date under it. The fire and water bleed inot each other at the middle.
On my right leg, I have a coat of arms representing my four kids with the animal for the Chinese Year they were born in: tiger (boy), rabbit (girl), ram (boy) and monkey (boy). Each frame for the respective animal is colored in their favorite color (yellow, pink, black and blue). And our family name is on a banner below it (O'Brien).
I will probably wait a while for my next one and that will be on my chest.

I totally agree.
I always felt mothers are kinda sick who immediately need to get their daughters ears pierced soon after birth.
Mrs. JJD had her ears pierced as a baby, and we took IJ when she was three months. She cried for like five minutes, MAYBE. Her immunizations (when they plunged the needles into her thighs) were about a BILLION times worse. Every year she gets earrings from Daddy for Christmas.
I've noticed that they are usually the same mothers who have their daughters out in the sun with them getting dark tans at the age of 5.
I find your sweeping generalization offensive.

You beat me to that one.
JayJay, please don't take this as directed toward everyone having baby's ears pierced. Around here, most often they are young (and I mean young) mothers. Poorly treated babies (being had by children and out here often with no dad around) are a huge problem. These people aren't evil, just clueless and unprepared. They are unprepared to have children, have a great deal of difficulty supporting them, and view them often as playthings or pets. They live in poor conditions with little money, yet getting a babies ears pierced is a priority?
Please, I am not talking all or even half. I don't think you are a bad person just because you pierce your child's ears.
I think JayJay should be forced to issue the following apology:
"I was ignorant. There is no other way to say it. What I did was wrong and harmful. I didn't see the big picture before, but now that I have had my eyes opened to the harm and damage that has been done, I can't stand to sit by. My opinion on animal cruelty baby ear piercing has changed 180 degrees - I now want to do everything I can do to stop animal cruelty baby ear piercing. In addition to the $250k fine that I have to pay the Federal Government, I am donating $1million to the Atlanta ASPCA Seattle Infant Facial Accesories Support Group (IFASG). I do this knowing that my future earnings from football (I have no idea what you do) are in question, and I may never be able to replace that $1million.
I apologize to everyone affected by this case. You shouldn't have had to explain to your children why Michael Vick JayJayDean was involved in something like this. I've let you all down. I hope I can one day regain your trust.
These last two posts have really made the thread for me.
No piercings, no tattoos and I will keep things that way forever.
My three year old daughter got her ears pierced this year and didn't even blink when it happened. She takes very good care of her earrings and loves showing me which ones she's wearing when I come home from work.
Of course, this is the same girl who requests that Mommy floss her teeth before bed...

I have zero recollection of posting this and now I'm sad that the link doesn't work anymore. What's with all the "I signed up for" and "I asked around?" That is not a potluck. That is lunch. No luck is involved.
