juliacatherine :  I have never hidden my tattoos, however i did not go against my parents wishes while living under their roof.  I got my first tattoo after i had moved out, and mum and dad both saw it the next time i saw them (separately).  When they went to say something i stopped them by saying it was not up for discussion.

Nope, none of my tattoos or piercings are secrets.  In fact, my parents pierced my ears (the first set of holes) when I was three weeks old.  (It is worth mentioning that while I’m not personally upset about this – though I was at the time, didn’t let my mom hold me for a week without screaming – I am against it, as I don’t view children as capable of consenting to permanent body modification, and ear piercings in a child that young are permanent.  I’ve had them out for YEARS at a time and they never closed.)

I have 3 tattoos, and 10 piercings (used to have 12 piecings, but I let my tongue and 1 of my cartilage piercings close).

My mom recently got her first (and she says only) tattoo.

My sister has a number of tattoos and piercings.

My dad is mod free.

I have 3 tattoos. One is on my ankle and I hid that one for about a year and a half. The other two they don’t know and I’ve had them for 6-7 years now. Lol.

I just have one that I got when I was 19..I never told my parents because at first I thought they would be upset and then just because I’m not a huge fan of it and I don’t show it much anyway..fast forward 7 years and my mom saw it while dress shopping..she was upset for maybe 6 seconds 🙂
