I thought all piercings were surface piercings ? :oops:

No human can call themselves liberal or radical or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if they contribute in any way to the pain and suffering of other beings.

Most piercings go THROUGH something...an ear, a nostril, etc. Surface piercings refers to piercings that are 'stitched' through the skin....in one point and out another without going through an individual body part. Does that makes sense at all? I'm not so good at explaining things!

There's too much strain on the jewelry for them to heal. If left in for very long, they would migrate out, leaving nasty scars.

And most piercings will close up if the jewelry is left out for any significant amount of time.

I can leave my tongue barbells out for several hours with little or no problem, which I used to have to do occasionally at work. Mine are venoms, though; through the muscle, not the cartilage.

In a way you're right...
Your msucles may look a bit less defined than without any tattoos.

On the other hand youre not hiding your body, but just give your skin another colour. Which - for many - makes it even more beautiful than it was before...



And going back to that "tattoo=natural?"-discussion:
I think the tattoo itself is very natural as it's a great tradition in many tribes around the world for hundreds and thousands of years.

BUT the tattoo-colour that gets under your skin nowadays is artificial, which means that it's not natural...
