Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

What are some trends that you’ve always wanted to try but haven’t for one reason or another? They can be body modifications, hair looks, or even something like an avant garde lip color.

 

I have always loved the look of dimple piercings and dermal piercings, but since I work in a white collar office position I feel like they’d be far too distracting…plus the healing process is a pain in the butt from what I hear. Our corporate office is very tattoo/body mod friendly! I mean we do have Kat Von D as a brand, which is great because most corporate offices are very strict on ‘unconventional modifications’.

 

I’m also a big fan of full sleeve tattoos; and I’m delighted that sleeves aren’t just being sported by the boys these days. One of my good friends has a gorgeous one that goes completely down her arm. Right now I’m about 2/4ths done with my half sleeve and even that has been quite the project. My artist estimates that I have another 5-6 hours. Love the way full sleeves look, but again I doubt I’ll pursue that simply because of my career.

 

Something less permanent that I’m yearning to try is a darker lip. I’ve dabbled around with really deep purples, but I think it might be fun to just take the plunge and try a glossy black with simple shadow.

Whimsically yours,

My dad always said that if I wanted to get a tattoo he would actually go with me.  His tattoo advice, don't get it on a bone it will hurt like heck, make sure it's something you won't regret and don't get one just to get one. 

 

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

Probably any type of piercings and tattoos however I am not of age to get any and my body had an allergic reaction to earrings when I did have them. However I have had my hair basically any color possible, and I wear all sorts of makeup so I guess it just comes down to piercings and tattoos.

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

Next summer I'm getting a helix and possibly a 4th set of lobe piercings.

 

I will also be getting permanent eyebrow makeup to match my hair color...because filling them in every day is a pain in the keister!

 

Also getting laser hair removal...because shaving sucks too.

 

And a few tattoos here and there. Can't act on any of it until next summer though as I'm still recovering from Accutane. Smiley Sad

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

I second the laser hair removal. I'd rather pay for that than keep buying razors and shave gel constantly :/

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

I have a dermal right in the middle of my chest between my collar bones, and most people think it is just a necklace but they can't see the chain, or that it is glued on. (I have had more conversations with strangers that start as "how do you get that to stick there?" than i can count)  I LOVE it!  It bruised heavily when it was done for a week or so, but I actually thought the healing process wasn't bad.  I thought it was way easier, than say, a cartilage piercing in your ear.  But I suppose it depends where you get it done, and if it is in an area that is bumped or moved a lot.   I will say, it was PAINFUL to get done, because it is done in two steps. The insertion of the jewelry doesn't tickle.

 

Okay, that's enough of me enabling you to get a dermal Smiley Happy

Funky hair colors!!
But working in an office doesn't allow that. :/

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

I currently have a couple tattoos on my arms and a chest peice and now am looking at getting my feet done then my arm, I also saw a SA with a Medusa piercing and really liked how it look and am half tempted to get that.

Also I want to try a really vibrant red for hair but I am already dark brown now so I know that it would be a process

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

I really like the look of dermals and have wanted to get them on each side under my collarbone.

 

I think it was around this time last year, I got a side shave and my friend at the barbershop was so scared his hand was shaking it was quite funny. He kept asking if I was sure cuz my hair was so long. Guys and cutting off a woman's long hair don't mix lol. After that went for the pixie and totally regretting it. A few more inched to bob length!

Re: Dermals--- DO IT (Dermal enabler does her enabling) 

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

Dermals are so cute!

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

Not exactly a trend, but I do want to get my ears pierced a third time.  I have my ears pierced twice, and, with the right earrings, three in each ear can look really nice.  I got my ears pierced a second time when I was in high school, and when I told my mom I was thinking about getting it done, she kinda freaked out.  Good thing I was the one paying for it lol.  Afterwards, she said it looked good lol.

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

My mom did the same with my nose piercing. She would tell me it would look disgusting and all these things. I finally did it one night, when I came home, she was fast asleep. The next afternoon we were going to a family part and she was at work that morning so as a courtesy I called her at work to kind of warn her. She freaked out! Once she saw it, she loved it. I took it out to go to an interview and it closed up. Disney doesn't allow piercings so I couldn't put it back in anyway & now I have the urge to get it back Smiley Sad

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

I would like a tattoo, I'm just so indecisive that I'm terrified to commit haha. I've had different unnatural hair colors (burgundy, red, magenta, deep violet) and currently have 4 piercings including my helix. I've heard scary things about dermal piercings (mostly about rejection and removal) so that's something I can definitely say I'm not down for.

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

I feel the same about the tattoo! I want one, but can't think of anything I would want on my body as an old lady, and the placement makes me laugh. I just picture me as a sassy old lady with a tattoo Smiley Tongue Doesn't sound all that appealing to me personally when I think of it that way. I have always wanted to dye my hair, but everytime I mention it to someone, they turn me away from the idea telling me I have the perfect hair color. Womp womp. 

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

Well just think of it this way...hair grows back! If you want to dye it, do it! I remember when I chopped off all my hair a few years ago, whenever I asked someone if I should cut my hair I always got the default "no, it's so pretty long!" response. I got so sick of hearing it and then I thought who cares, I want to do this. So I cut off about 11" of hair and donated it and my short cut looked pretty awesome! When I dyed my hair I didn't even ask anyone for opinions because it was something I really wanted lol.

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

Haha! Good, I had the same thing happen. I had always wanted to cut my hair really short. My ex boyfriend hated short hair on girls because he said that short hair is for boys, REAL STUPID. obviously he is gone haha My mom made me wait til after my high school graduation to cut it. So I did. I love short hair, I did a super short bob, a bob with side bangs, straight across bangs, my favorite was the asymmetrical bob that I have always gone back to. My current boyfriend loves my short hair, but at the same time doesn't care what I do with my hair so long as I like it. I stopped asking for feedback, because the only opinion that really matters is mine. I am currently growing it out, I miss my long hair!

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

Same here! I feel like we're hair twins haha. When I chopped mine off I did a slight a line bob, then an asymmetrical one which I thought looked really good so I just left it while letting my hair grow out, the way it grew out was my favorite hair to date. Then I dyed it, then evened the length out, got straight bangs, then no bangs, then finally dyed it back to brown and am currently letting it grow until I get tired of it and want to chop it off again Smiley Very Happy

 

This was my favorite (I'm not angry that's just how I usually look haha):

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

I love it! How funny, you're right next to my work. Literally, a couple steps away.

This is the style I liked my hair in the most. I just like the edginess of the asymmetrical bob. I am so tempted to do it again, but my hair is past my shoulders & it makes me excited that it's growing out again.

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

I like this style kissXmakeup!

Re: Trends/modifications that you've always wanted to try

Thanks crayzeeRN! I did too, because I have very thick hair and short hair means less hair to deal with. But now I miss my long hair more than ever and I am so close to having it be at the same length as 17 year old me Smiley Tongue
