Lip Tattoo




Would you?



In researching a character for Ghost Dusters book two, I began checking into lip tattoos. I was completely surprised to find how common they are.



Of course the idea of lip tattoos has been around for a while. A tattoo can be a way of finding the bloodline pedigree of a horse.

But in this day and age people are choosing to decorate themselves in many styles and arts of tattooing. I'm sure to choose a word for your own lip would take a lot of thought.



Or maybe not.



If I had to choose a word, it wouldn't be beer. Maybe the word joy. Then again I may only choose that one because it's short and the thought of having a needle pierce the inside of my lip for a longer word is a tad nauseating.

If you could choose a single world to mark yourself with, what would you choose?

Wow. When I read the title in bloglines, I assumed you meant the permanent makeup sort of thing. I can't even get beyond the idea to think of a word! Yikes! Yeah, needles and me, not so good.

Anissa, that makes me wonder ... do you think the permanent makeup thing is more painful than other tattoos?

Well, I try to imagine the number of times they'd have to poke my lips to cover them in a color. Seems like it would hurt. Then again, I don't have any tattoos, so it's hard to say. I try to avoid needles when at all possible. ;)

I can't seem to get past the thought "ouch!!!" to any other word. Maybe 'crazy.' But too many letters--OUCH!!

Wendy Roberts said...

Jana, good one LOL!!

Spy, ouch is great. If someone tried to touch the word you could bite them and give 'em an ouch too he he.

i want my lip tattooed
its very hard to decide what it would say i was thinking "say this sooner" then thought that would be a bit long not thinking about the pain, more that it wouldn't fit on my lip

I had the inside of my lip tattooed last week. I got 2 musical notes with a heart between them. It was my first tattoo and in no way do i regret it. I recommend it to everyone for their first tattoo, as it is discrete and hardly hurt at all. For any more information feel free to email me: hanny_mcrobot@hotmail.com
