Secondeded, get the tattoo.

 

The bow looks a bit girly with the peircing (sp?). Although it could look pretty slick with chains or something a little less "oo err i like your interior design" kinda thing. ;)

Corset piercings suck hard. I can't imagine anything more awkward than having a dozen rings down my back.

 

Besides... it severely limits the body armour and vests you can wear...

 

*Disclaimer - The above opinion is jaded by my first sighting of a corset piercing on a grossly overweight emo chick queing at a gig*

 

In an entirely on-topic occurance, I have just sold a Peltor headset and intend to 'invest' some of the cash in further inking. My artist will be pleased.

I do like the tattoo, but I was thinking of having the rings pierced horizontally, so they lie flat, if you see what I mean?

 

And yes, I was going to thread them with chain, obviously!

 

I have 1 piercing at the moment, and 1 tattoo, so it's 50/50 :P

Corset piercings just speak of S+M to me..

 

On another note, can anyone tell me about UK forces (specifically Royal Marines) and their views on tattoos? I'm joining after Uni, hopefully as an officer, but am thinking about getting some ink.. Whats the rules?

Cheers! (Didn't think about checking the damned website..:D)

 

It wasn't gunna be anything huge anyway. But I heard that lower arm are frowned upon, but on a potential officers course, the NCO taking us on the endurance run had some very cool tribal tattoos (they represent one band for each enemy tribe member you've killed, he insisted the 6 he displayed were true) and some arabic down his forearm which he refused to translate.

Anything below about 2 inches above the elbow, or above the colar will get you automatically turned away from being an officer in the army and navy unless it can be reasonably covered up (by a watch or similar). I have had mates turned away from both the army and the navy, and a third who is fighting a running battle with the Navy Officer Selection Board to prove she can cover one on her wrist up. Once you are in of course, people care less.

 

Obviously for marines, it seems it is diferent, but I would be aware of this and I would get it confirmed by a recruitment officer, before comitting to one below the sleeveline.

Thats actually a damn good point, I'm looking to join the RAF later on this year and tattoos never occured to me. Looks like I'll forgo the one on my wrist I was planning and stick to the ones higher up my arms.

 

RAF's stance is:

 

'You can join the RAF if you have tattoos or piercings. However, if your tattoos are offensive or obscene, or if you have tattoos that would still be visible when wearing full uniform (for example on your wrists, neck or head), you will not be able to join. '

It has its reasons though, if i had 'Death to all muslims' tattoo'd on my face in arabic, it wouldn't go down well.

 

Tattoos aren't neat and tidy anyway you look at them, and its another method of keeping the persons body uniformed. (Hair length for example.)

How stupid is that! In a time of diminishing recruit numbers the forces are turning people away because they have body art.

I'm gob smacked.

 

I thought recruitment was on the rise cos of higher unemployment...

Thats actually why they relaxed the standards over here awhile ago... Now you can have tats on your neck and hands

Got this for my 21st to represent my birthplace (New Zealand). Designed by me and modified by my tattoo artist.

It contains a mixture of Maori, Hawaiian and Tahitian influences. I was told tattoos are addictive and I'm beginning to believe that.

I'm starting to consider getting more work done that branches off of and ties into this one.

 

Cheers!
