    CherriesThis Week’s Answers

    Question 1:
    Do you have any piercings or tattoos? How old were you when you got them? Where are they and what do they look like?

    I have both my ears pierced, got them done when I was about six. I was so scared to get them done, because I had been told they use a gun, and I thought they were going to shoot me in the ear and all my blood would fill the entire mall.

    When I started having kids, the earrings came out, and I haven’t worn earrings in almost six years. I want to get my ears re-pierced!

    Question 2:
    Do you want any piercings and tattoos? Where would you put them? Are you prepared for the pain?

    I want a ton of tattoos and maybe some piercings. I used to want piercings everywhere, but have re-considered it many times. For sure I want to get my ears re-done.

    For tattoos, I have a few. I want something incorporating all my kids names and birthdays. Then I want f-holes on my back (and have wanted them since I first wanted a tattoo). I want tattoos covering my entire body, except for my face.

    I like to think I’m prepared for the pain, but I don’t think that I really am. I think I’ll probably cry, alot!

    Question 3:
    Have you ever considered scarification or branding?

    Both, not incredibly seriously though, because I’ve never really known anyone else who was into it. I think that I would lean more towards scarification than branding any day.

    Question 4:
    Would you most definitely go to a professional for your chosen body modification, or would you be willing to let an at-home beginner do it?

    I think if it was my first body mod, I would most definitely go to a professional. If I knew someone who was trained but didn’t work for an actual shop, and did body mods at home, then maybe I’d be willing to do a home tattoo, but I’d want someone who knew what they were doing. I might let a beginner practice somewhere on my body, like my legs, that I don’t show off very often.

    Question 5:
    If you have tattoos or piercings or scarification or branding or some other type of body modification, how worried about infection were you? Did you keep your mod extremely clean?

    If I did get a tattoo or piercing, I think I would be extremely worried about an infection or somehow ruining it. I’d probably keep it really clean, worry about people touching it, or looking at it too long 😉

    BONUS QUESTION:
    Have you ever self-mutilated?

    For about two years straight, anytime things got stressful, yes. I haven’t in a really long time.
