I have my lobes double pierced and stretched. My bottom holes are 0g and my tops are 6g. My first piercing was my left helix but that has long healed over and won't take any earrings anymore. I would love to get it redone but there is some scar tissue that might make that difficult and painful.
I let both my my boys write their names in crayon when they were 5, then those got made into tattoos for the back of each of my calves. They came out great, but now they think everything they draw gets to become a tattoo!

If you steal Hybrids, do NOT come to my town.
I have 3 cartilage piercings in my left ear, an industial in my right ear, and 2 lobe piercings each. Honestly I just wish I could keep adding to my cartilage but I've sort of run out of piercable ear. x)

I've changed my mind about a forward helix to a rook instead but I've heard it's painful so I'm scared to get it done. I also kind of want a lyric tattoo, but I don't know what I'd want on my body forever.

I used to have 5 or 6 in each ear, but my job requires me to take out any jewelry and it just got too frustrating to take things in and out and in and out all the time, so I let them close. I miss them a lot actually. But the upkeep was too much.

I think I'll be getting my first tattoo... sometime within the year. I would like to get a very simple tattoo based off of the song King of the Clouds by Panic! At the Disco - just a really simple cloud with a crown on top of it, maybe with some sun rays. I know a tattoo artist that has tattooed all of my friends with a great portfolio. My only setback is my very low pain tolerance - does anyone have suggestions for places with tattoos that are:
-Discreet, but still able to be shown. Able to be hidden by a tee shirt and long pants in a professional setting, but also in a spot that won't be awkward if I want to show someone.
-Relatively painless, or less painful. My body has an average amount of body fat, which I think might be useful info because I've heard that it's less painful on fatty areas.
-Good for inking quality/longevity - I don't want my tattoo fading within a few years' time, so somewhere that won't fade as quickly (I know this applies more for hands/fingers but if anyone has experience with a tattoo fading abnormally fast in an area, I'd like to know).
If anyone can help me out, that would be appreciated. The location of the tattoo is the only stumbling block I have. Otherwise, I know exactly what I want...

For placement, it sounds like your upper arm/shoulder is your best bet. It's one of the least sensitive areas to get a tattoo and it's easily covered by short sleeves. You could also get it on your shoulder blade or somewhere on your back but that will be more painful. I have friends who have gotten tattoos in other hideable places, like their upper thigh and their foot, but I would steer clear of feet if you are worried about pain. Your artist will probably have some tips to give you on placement and will definitely not give you something you're not sure about.
Your tattoo is going to fade within a few years and there is almost nothing you can do about that. You will probably have to go get it touched up within the first few years no matter how good your artist is because there is no way to know how well your skin will take the ink until you actually do it. Follow your artist's advice about this, because they know their materials and can give you a better idea of what you have to do to keep the design looking the way you want it to.
As for pain tolerance, I know what I would do before getting a tattoo... but I definitely can't talk about it here
Does it fade completely, and do you always have to get it touched up? i have friends with full sleeves and full bodies done for circa 5-10 years and they haven't mentioned a need to touch up the entire area. Is it because the aforementioned areas are more prone to fading? Or is it just a normal thing? How much does it usually cost to get touched up (my piece would be relatively small and either free of excess color or very minimal coloring).
I may walk in, and see if they have suggestions on where to place it since I feel like it varies based on the body due to fat deposits and where muscle lies. Or I could be wrong. Either way, I'd like to walk in before I make an appointment and discuss what I want done.

No, it won't fade completely, and you're right, it may not fade at all, but everyone I know who has gotten a tattoo has had to get it retouched. The whole picture will still be there but the colors may not be as vibrant.
My dude has two all-black tattoos, for instance, and they're about 5 and 10 years old. You can definitely tell which one is older.
Just follow the advice of your artist and you should be golden
So far I only have one cartilage piercing in my upper right ear and the normal earrings, but I'm thinking of getting more piercings. Maybe another regular ear piercings for each ear and another cartilage piercing in the same right ear.
Before I got my cartilage one I was thinking between that or an industrial.

Both of my ears have the standard lobes as well as helix piercings. I also have a belly ring, & my septum pierced (septum’s been my fave so far). Looking forward to having enough pennies saved for my first tattoo, hehe.
I don't breathe the way I used to.
I had a few piercings in my ears (3 on the right side, 2 on the left side) and 3 tunnels (2 in the right ear, 1 in the left ear). I took out the jewelry a few months ago when I was 17 and my tunnels shrunk to about 12mm (from 24mm), 10mm (from 22mm) and 3mm (from 12mm). I have another 3 facial piercings (a stretched 3mm septum and 2 lip piercings) and 14 tattoos that I did all by myself with the stick and poke method. And I have/had 2 brandings. The one on my leg was not deep enough and can't really be seen anymore, but the big one across my stomach turned out pretty good (for a homemade one). It was a bad experience though, because it took me about 2 hours of pain to finish it and when I was done I got an inflammation for about a month and couldn't move or breathe without lots of pain (which is pretty bad since I had to go to school every day)
I will definitely get more tattoos and I'm thinking about splitting my tongue
