About This Quiz

With each passing year, more and more people are choosing to get inked up with tattoos or get pierced, on increasingly dangerous body parts.  When it comes to tattoos, often people select their designs, and it is something personal to them, while others only like tattoos and let the tattoo artists do their things. When it comes to piercings, we aren't talking about the ears, we are thinking about the nose, the tongue, or even someplace a little more private. 

When you think about getting a tattoo or a piercing, a couple of things come to mind. First of all, unless you get a tattoo someplace private, everyone is going to see it, and they could think differently of you, whether it be good or bad, and the same goes for piercings. You are going to seem a lot more "different" to the general population if you do either one of these things, which apparently is part of the reason people to it, other than individual expression, of course. The other thing you have to think about is the pain, both tattoos and piercings are painful, but one type of pain lasts longer.
