From tattoos, to piercings to all other body modifications, how far is too far for you???

Im pretty open minded.. I wouldnt get my eyeballs inked tho, or any hard core body mods, like navel removal and stuff like that... I like my belly button haha...

But for some others they would stop at ear piercings, what about you??? :)

I wouldn't get anything removed or stretched out. Other than that, there's not really a whole lot I wouldn't ever consider. I kinda agree about eye ball ink though....

I am one of those who stopped after getting their ears pierced, lol. :P

I haven't ruled out getting a tattoo one day - but I still haven't come across anything that is meaningful enough to me to get inked onto me permernantly.

I've got my eyebrow done and my ears and my lips and my tongue and I think that's enough piercings. Some of my tongue ones have closed up. I keep my lips open with studs you can barely see. I don't really dress up like that anymore, maybe for a concert or something.

No tattoos or piercings for me. I like nose piercings on girls though for some reason.

Anything that will eventually look hideous. So, most of it. Including most tattoos and large gauges.

But I would want tongue splitting and horns if I had a lifestyle that supported it; so, I guess I have a pretty odd view of "too far".

Unfortunately; those two are too far for my love.

I wouldn't go as far as getting a tattoo or any piercings. Not my sort of way to express my personality anyway.

I don't really understand piercings or tattoos. I don't hate them, but I don't love them enough to pierce objects through my skin. I like the natural look. MAYBE a tattoo, if I could commit to something.

Yes, I just do not understand the appeal at all. Natural will always be preferable to being inked or having some part of one's body altered. For me, anyway.

I dont care for theHUGE holes in the ears,just looks retarded.dont care for nostril piercings either,looks to white trashy ghetto wannabe.pretty much anything else is ok.ive got my tongue pierced and an industrial in my right ear(needs to be redone,not happy with it).going to get either an eyebrow or lip pierced next.

Not really into tattoos,especially on women.a few small ones are ok but i cant stand full arms and stuff.why cover up that beautiful skin.its like wearing boots with a skirt,we want to see those beautiful legs,not some ugly boot.i only have 2 tattoos and dont plan on anymore.even though i love then,i wish i didnt get them.i can take the piercings out if i decide i dont want them anymore but im stuck with the tats.

I understand the appeal, but do not want any tattoo or piercing myself either. So technically one tattoo already is too far. No serious motives or anything, I just don't want them myself.

the only body modifications i have are scars.
scars are tattoos for the brave (and/or clumsy)

lately i've been considering a tattoo. i doubt i'll ever get one, but if i did, it would be one of two pretty specific ideas.

I would never get a tattoo or piercing. Of the tattoos I've seen, I would say 95% of them are ugly. Furthermore, none of my friends have any, either.

None, I don't get why people want to mutilate themselves. I don't hate tattoos, though I don't have one nor the desire... it would be refreshing to meet a woman without a single tattoo. When I was in Highschool not one girl had a tat. Now women my age all have tats WTF is up with that?

I have 8 tattoos ranging from the size of a silver dollar to the size of my hand. I got the first one when I was 15 in some guys basement and that's EXACTLY what it looks like. 19 years later it doesn't look any better and doesn't really look any worse. Everything was clean and brand new and my brother knew the guy so it wasn't some creepy stranger although he was a terrible artist. As hideous as it is I don't regret it. It marked a very life changing year and that ugly tattoo was a part of it I guess. I was smart enough to get it in a place that nobody sees it. After that I waited until I could go to a reputable shop and get it done legally. That's the shop I still go to.

I wouldn't get my face, neck or hands done. Just personal preference for me. Doesn't bother me if other people do. Well....ok...I don't really ever think a face tattoo is a good idea. But do what floats your boat. It's not my face.

I have a bunch of holes in my ears that I never wear earrings in. I have my tragus pierced. I used to have my lip pierced 10 years ago. Piercings really aren't my thing anymore. I have considered getting my nipples pierced but that would be something special for me. Not to show off to the world.

I had my ears gauged for a while. I talked to a piercer to find out how big I could go and have them still close back up normal when I took them out. I think I made it all the way to a 6 gauge. Basically big enough to put a pencil through although I never did. I took them out and they closed back up and look normal. You wouldn't know that I ever had them gauged.

I have one tattoo and I did have my ears pierced at one point, but I don't think I'd do either one again. I prefer being as close to natural as I can get. My wife on the other hand, she loves piercing and tattooing herself. She actually did my ear piercings back when I did have them.

Kat Von D would be too far for me but I like looking at her. She's an amazing piece of work. I love the stars along the side of her face.

I wouldn't want to get a portrait of a person. And I wouldn't want sleeves or a full suit. The most I'd get, if money were no object, is a cohesive scene for a full back piece.

I saw a man who had a tattoo of a hand across his mouth. I admired him for his courage and bravery .. he turned himself into a message to the world. I felt a little .. bad .. for staring at him the way I did. I was stunned, couldn't help it.

Yeah, she's not around anymore. Rebel or not rebel? But don't you think the true rebel chooses no tattoos?
