Ever thought of dyeing your hair red,blue,white,pink,purple,etc? How about a tattoo ?

Just wondering.... And if you know, how old do you have to be to get a piercing without your parents permission? 18?

Re: Ever thought of dyeing your hair red,blue,white,pink,purple,etc? How about a tattoo ?

Yes I agree with vanillammm... pictures please! Smiley Happy

For sure! I will have to convince my husband to help me paint my head later, haha. I wish I had bothered to take pictures of all the different things through the years. Smiley Happy

Ya, I believe it's 18...

 

The Tattoos I want in my life, but still not sure about it is:

 

  • A heart on my bikini line
  • Fullmetal Alchemist sign on my left ankle
  • behind that was going to be Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony (current ponies)
  • and a Warrior in Pink on my lower back for my mom who died of breast cancer

 

The piercing in my life that I want, but still thinking about that is:

 

  • An extra earring hole next to my other earring hole (on both sides)
  • and a tongue piercing

 

But I'm too chicken enough to do the tattoo's and the extra piercings :/

Oh I love Fullmetal Alchemist Smiley Happy

I counted my collection 

 

  • I have 107 manga tankōbons 
  • 28 Shojo Beats
  • 9 Shonen Jumps (because my friend had a subscription and I could just read his so I didn't buy many except when they came with promotional stuff) 
  • 13 DVDs 
  • 10 anime related video games 
  • Lots of T-shirts, stuffed dolls, posters, and jewelry
  • 10 How to draw books 
  • 3 OST imports, Bleach, Blood+, and InuYasha 

 

If we count american comics then I have far too many vintage ones to even count. I also have very large stashes of trading cards. I didn't have internet for quite a while so instead of reading online I bought a ton of tankōbons. I did not get into the DVD thing as much.  

 

Re: Ever thought of dyeing your hair red,blue,white,pink,purple,etc? How about a tattoo ?

The Warrior in Pink tattoo will continue to mean something to you throughout your life.  That's the kind of tattoo that you likely won't regret.  The rainbow pony though... you'll feel like a moron in 10 years or so.

Re: Ever thought of dyeing your hair red,blue,white,pink,purple,etc? How about a tattoo ?

why would she feel like a moron?

 

not everyone who gets tattoos needs it to have some ~super deep meaning~. and while some people do regret theirs, not everyone does.

Re: Ever thought of dyeing your hair red,blue,white,pink,purple,etc? How about a tattoo ?

You don't think a 30, 40, + year old woman will feel like a twit with a My Little Pony tattoo? Odds are high that she will.

 

And no, tattoos don't have to have meaning in order not to be regretted, but it's more likely. 

Re: Ever thought of dyeing your hair red,blue,white,pink,purple,etc? How about a tattoo ?

I don't think that no, because not everyone feels the same about my little pony? would I feel like a twit with a mlp tattoo at 40? yes because I would feel like one at any age with that tattoo because I don't care about mlp. would someone who really loves mlp feel like a twit? who knows

 

my point was that it's weird/rude to tell someone you don't really know that they'll feel like a moron for getting something they like. who knows how long they've thought about it

 

side note- mlp actually has a big following in the nerd culture realm

Re: Ever thought of dyeing your hair red,blue,white,pink,purple,etc? How about a tattoo ?

it'll be 20% cooler...  But I wouldn't encourage it unless Dashie carries a lot of meaning.  You go, Pegasister Smiley Happy

I have thought about it...But again I'm to chicken to go though with it. I'm still a tattoo virgin. She is just a sparky kind of gal. I like that Smiley Wink

I want purple hair sooooo badly. But I'm gonna wait until my hair gets longer.

Re: Ever thought of dyeing your hair red,blue,white,pink,purple,etc? How about a tattoo ?

You have to be 16 for piercings (at least for ears) and 18 for tattoos (I'd guess this goes for some body piercings also, I think you can guess which ones I am talking about). Just keep in mind tattoos are very expensive both to get and to alter/remove if you change your mind so make sure you want to live with it. I took me years to settle on my first tattoo which was a wedding present from a friend, I designed it myself. Also take some time to really consider gauging your ears if you are thinking about going past 10g, because after that they don't really go back. I accidentally gauged mine out farther than I intended because I first wore really heavy earrings all the time then purchased mislabeled earrings.

 

If you interested in body art I would get a henna kit, they are so much fun, and if you really like a design you can keep redoing it. I would start with premixed, cause mixing henna is kinda difficult. Smiley Very Happy

 

I had hot HOT pink hair for awhile, it was awesome, but the upkeep was too much hassle. I do love to do hair chalk though, color when I want, change it as much as I want, no morning after regrets.

how funny, I just dyed my hair dark purple...and im planning on getting my septum pierced tomorrow!!

 

18 is the age where you can legally get a tattoo or a piercing with out parent permission. Once you turn 18, you are considered an "adult" capable of making your own choices.

 

In regards to getting a piercing vs a tattoo....I say go with a piercing 1st. Piercings are easy to take care of, and you can just take it out if you don't like it. Depending on how long you have it in your body, it may not even leave a scar or a hole.

 

Tattoos on the other hand...are expensive, more painful in my opinion...and depending if you opt for laser removal down the road..permanent. I currently only have 2 (1 on my left wrist, 1 on my right foot).The one I got on my foot took 3 hours, and it hurt like hell. My wrist was not as painful..but I do regret getting it, so there's that to think of too, the regret.

 

I currently have 13 piercings. 2 months after I turned 18, I got my first "abnormal" piercing. I got a tragus piercing. Yes, my parents flipped out, yes, they didn't like it...but its my body and I was of age (18).

 

 

Hope this helped, good luck!

Re: Ever thought of dyeing your hair red,blue,white,pink,purple,etc? How about a tattoo ?

I keep threatening to dye the ends of my hair purple but then the urge passes when I see what some of my students have done to their heads, Lordy.  I do not have tattoos and I only have single ear piercings which are customary to give girls at birth in my culture (I rarely wear any jewelry though not even my wedding ring). 

 

I mostly express myself through haircuts. I grow it long until I can donate it and then hack it all off for a good cause Smiley Wink I am too mercurial to do anything too permanent to my body, I know I'll hate it after a while.

Re: Ever thought of dyeing your hair red,blue,white,pink,purple,etc? How about a tattoo ?

I actually had the bottom half of my head pink during highschool! I have one tattoo that i got when i wa. 19 and a couple of piercings on my ears. I always recommend going to one that actually wants parents permission. Those are the ones you can trust! Also make sure they have experience! That is very important! 

Re: Ever thought of dyeing your hair red,blue,white,pink,purple,etc? How about a tattoo ?

Here in Canada its 16 for a tattoo. Piercing are actually 14 (with parent letter) but 18 for full consent, But im telling you. When I was in high school, many of my friends got tattoos that they now regret, I know a lot of peoples that regret tattoos they got when they were young. I won't even start with the piercing errors that some of them made!

 

If you are thinking of getting a tattoo, here is a little trick for you, if you are "ready" for it, make an appointment, but the trick is that make it in 2 months, so that you will have an extra 2 month to think about it. Trust me, it WILL make the difference if you want it or not Smiley Happy

 

About the hair, If you have bleached hair and you are going with semi permanent then go for it! I've had red hair, blue hair, purple hair etc. Never BRIGHT colours, because I feel like those hardly make a look work. A dark color will look good, dark red, dark blue etc. At the moment I have ombre hair, (Brown and blonde) And the blonde part is dark blue, I get lots of compliments on it but if it would be bright bright blue. I don't think it would work :/ 

 

Semi permanent hair dyes are fun for sure, but the sad part is the bleached hair, after bleaching it, you won't have that natural brown hair again. Which I sometimes miss actually, also blonde hair = DAMAGE for a long time, Good luck! Smiley Happy

I naturally have medium brown hair, and I've had it highlighted pretty heavily light blonde and a reddish (though not bright red) color before. I wish I had dyed my hair all sorts of bright, exciting colors when I was younger! But now at 27 with a business degree and an office job, I don't think I could pull it off.

 

You do, at least in my state, need to be 18 to get a piercing or tattoo without your parents' consent. I got my belly button pierced when I was 15 (with my parents' consent), but I took the ring out 4 years ago...I got tired of it. I really wish the hole would completely go away, but it hasn't. Smiley Sad As mentioned below though, at least the belly button can be covered up if you don't want the piercing anymore. If I could do it over though, I wouldn't have gotten it in the first place. 

 

I had toyed with the idea of getting a tattoo for about 5 years, but, thankfully, I didn't. I have seen beautiful ones, and I know many people remain happy with their tattoos forever, but I know I wouldn't have been happy more than a few years with anything I would have chosen no matter how meaningful it would have been at the time. 

 

I love the ideas that others gave you regarding how to experiment with all of these things in a non-permanent way until you are positive you want them.  

Re: Ever thought of dyeing your hair red,blue,white,pink,purple,etc? How about a tattoo ?

I'm 25 now, and haven't colored my hair in a few years (I'm an actor so I have to keep my appearance fairly consistent)- but when I was in high school I experimented a lot with red (I have dark brown hair)- the most wild I went was bright red streaks, although I did accidentally dye my hair purple once...then I had to strip it, which turned it orange...eek!

 

I second Desert Rose on Manic Panic, although if you have dark hair, you will need to bleach your hair first to make it show up really well, so it's a little more permanent than for lighter color hair.

 

I've considered getting a tattoo before- I even had my friend design one that was really meaningful to me, but I never actually went and got it, and now I don't really feel the urge to anymore.  

 

I'm not sure about the rules with piercing, but for tattoo it is definitely 18 and over.  I only went as far as a second hole in my ear for piercing.  I definitely had friends who pierced themselves, but I was too squeamish). I would leave the piercing to the pros though, too easy to get an infection, esp when piercing your brow, nose, face, belly button, etc.  Also, some of the ear piercings can be REALLY painful.

 

If you aren't sure about a piercing, tattoo, or other body mod, it's best to play around with temporary solutions.  Hair will always grow out, and I used to draw (or have friends draw) amazing "tattoos" with marker or pen.  There are fake piercings that are fairly convincing, and they can help you try out a look before you commit to it.
