    I have both piercings and tattoos. My piercings are however, limited to my ears. I have one on my left cartilage while the other three are on my ear lobes.

    My two tattoos however have meaning to it. I got them both as my 21st bday gift, one my horoscope sign and the other to humor myself over my birth mark. I had lettering tattoo which says Est. ____ (year I was born) right underneath my birth mark. They are both relatively small and hidden.

    My ears are pierced once and i have 4 tattoo's .. I tend to go for another one when i'm at a major milestone in my life ..

    I think they are devilishly seductive personally.

    It only took me six years to come to a decision on my first tattoo... So yeah, I'd say I thought about it. It was something an old boyfriend once told me... He said "Don't go into a tattoo parlor and pick something off the wall. Pick your own design, and make sure it means something to you."

    None of either.

    But my decision is based on beliefs, which overrides my personal choice.

    It does seem to be a common SJ thing (and Fs, too) .No tattoos for me, though I like the idea of them. I'm too indecisive and would probably change my mind when it's too late. Plus I would worry about it not looking "perfect" or fading. I've thought about it though, never all that seriously. Maybe someday.

    Religious beliefs could dictate not marking the body. If you believe the tenets of the religion, but personally think tattoos are cool, your religious beliefs would trump your personal, secular views.

    Only my ears are pierced and I have no tattoos.

    I don't really think tattoos are a type thing.

    This is a strange association you have there, bro. No offense.

    I would honestly imagine that tattoos are more of an SP (aesthetic and experential reasons) and ENxP (self-expression and spontaneity reasons) thing.

    I can see how tats could be SJ, though, if you were around very young SJs that grew up at the tail end of generation X, or more so gen Y and Z, and were surrounded by the tattoo trend and therefore participated because it was the "in" thing to do...a behavior that's about immature SJ conformity more than anything else.

    I'm INFP and have 7 tattoo's, scarification and 9 piercings. As my first body mod was done over 15 years ago, well before the current 'trend', i'd have to say that I have them because i enjoy their aesthetic, rather than it being an 'in' thing, which i what is happening so often atm.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.
