I'm a clean canvas myself and I'm staying that way. I have wondered about having a tattoo in the past and the one that I would have gone for is my cartoon froggy that's sitting on the website at http://www.frogandfly.co.uk

I've been drawing hundreds of the little guy since my late teens and he brings a smile to peoples faces. He's proved very popular.

If anyone wants to wear one as a tattoo, let me know. I don't have a clue about designing tattoos, but I'd be happy to talk to a practitioner of the art about how to proceed. There'd be no charge; I'd consider it an honour were someone to make such a commitment with one of my designs.

I don't have any tattoos and would probably be too scared to get one done as I always imagine it is painful.

Didn't get my ears pierced for years as imagined pain to be worse than it actually was.
Only got ears done when my best friend agreed to come with me for moral support.

For years having pierced ears was regarded as very common. Now 6 month olds are having it done to them. Ooops!

Even now the vast majority of high-end earrings are still made as screw fittings.

I've not had my ears pierced and I don't wear jewelry. I only wear a watch when I'm out because I need to know what time the buses and trains run. I usually wear a light covering of foundation and that's about as far as embellishment goes. My mum's about the same and so was granny.

on the odd occasion i wear any make up its a bit of eye-liner and eyeshadow, thats it.

my friend tho takes about an hour to put on her make up maybe more - if we are going out a 7 she starts getting ready at about half 4

i have never seen the point,whats the attraction? i used to spend hours doodling on the soles of my black sannies as a kid but thats as far as i took it.Maybe as a memorial to a dead loved one at a stretch i could imagine having one,but i've never felt the need.Scars on the other hand i'm covered in those but no one wants to see them..................

I do sometimes ponder getting one or two more, but it's choosing what to get (and finding the money as good tattoo artists' time isn't cheap.)

i'm "lucky" with my psoriasis in that it only affects my head and face. Well they think its that on my face.

but my tattoos aren't in any places where the Koebner effect but my friend has one behind her ear and i would love one there as well, but the Koebner effect would attack it there

Hi nutty
Its good to finally find someone that also has koebners as i get fed up trying to explain to people its not just psorisis(i was told by a workmate that pissing on the skin is a cure :evil: )
i get affected anywhere i get a cut or nick on my skin
Have you found anything that helps/
the only thing that helps me is uv or natural sunlight
