You'll be too busy stomping them in the dirt for them to say anything, anyways :)
When I got my first tattoo, my mom came with me and got one, too! Lol She said it was the most horrid pain (she got a butterfly on her ankle), but when my grandma died, she went and got another one to honor her, a yellow butterfly that looks like a rose, two things my grandma liked. Though my grandma hated tattoos! Lol
My mom actually brags about my tattoos to people now. I have a big Cheshire Cat going across my back and the outline of an Alice above that. I would like to have my whole back done in a dark Alice in Wonderland theme. That was the plan when we got started, but artist was a flake and then I got pregnant. Life happens.

I actually don't think they hurt too bad. I have one on my lower back, one mid-back, and one wrapped around my ankle. I think they all hurt the same, but it wasn't horrid, unbearable pain. I remember whenever I was having my ankle done, if he touched a certain spot with the pen, my legs would twitch. XD I could keep it under control, it was just my thigh twitching in response to the pen.

The pain has never bothered me either. When I was getting my back done, they were ragging on one of the guys that worked there because he had cried when he got one on his back. Lol He was amazed by me.
I had the twitching problem when I was having my Cheshire done. I don't know why. I think it was just the surprise when the pen would come down in a different spot and I would jerk involuntarily. Artist would say, "Girl, if you don't hold still this cat is going to look f***ed up!"

Bahaha, I always thought it might've struck a nerve or something, and that's why I would twitch. But it is also the shock of that needle point touching your skin!

I think any time you make a choice that is way out of the average spectrum of "normal", you define your self as different and make a statement. If the statement you want to make at the moment(for example, at a horse show) is how good you and your horse are at the chosen disapline, you will need to remove any form of self expression that detracts from that. For example, I love lime green, but to wear lime green breeches to a show would really detract from the impression I want to give, that of a serious horseperson trying to succeed at an event. When you show, you may have to remove some peircings to be taken seriously. Often people with multiple peircings still are perceived under the stereotype of young, rebelious people that are up to no good.

I have 5 studs, three in one ear, two in the other. Other than avoiding dangly earings that catch easily, They haven't caused any problems.

Whilst I personally don't have anything more than the standard lobe piercings, my hair is dyed bright purple... one of my friends at the yard has hers bright red, and another has a nose ring and an eyebrow ring, and another a nose stud. But our yard has quite a lot of teenagers and twenty-somethings, so we don't really notice the same, I guess.

I only have a belly ring. And people can't see that unless I show them or I go swimming :)
