Re: Tattoos and Piercings in Switzerland

I wanted to get "Made in New Zealand" tattooed on my butt.. then a friend pointed out that in a few years this tattoo might not be in the same place as it was at the moment (!) (re: sagging old lady) and it may also not be acceptable in all countries... (but then, not many would get to see it?)

Anyways, I did have a belly ring at the beginning of the 90's before everyone had one.
And then took it out after a dirty old business man with a large ego and a small... what was i talking about? oh yeah...

Maybe i'll get a belly ring again with the return of my sixpack abs
because i dont think it would look so hot, or might not even be found, amongst all those stretch-mark scars

I've wondered whether getting more and more tattoos is done because people like them and want more or they get bored with the original ones and want a change.

Why don't people just use those ones with a paper backing that you lick to adhere them. They only last a few days and don't become things you regret when you've aged a bit?
i do

I had a kiwi on my arm for a while.. but wouldn't get a "real" one..
people are funny creatures, and acquaintances were quite different towards me when they had seen this... i'm not enuff of a man to pull it off for real...

and now i like to rebel, in that i dont have a tattoo

today at the pool, friends were discussing getting their 2nd tattoos.. yes. i think they can be addictive..

Even when incredibly drunk I have never forgotten my name. But going to the trouble of learning Japanese - and then tattooing your name to yourself - now that is dedication.

You really should see Dave Gorman Googlewhack!

Hello everyone...
Can anyone help me, please Where would one learn to do piercing here in Canton Zürich? Are there courses available that one can take and are there apprenticeship positions advertised anywhere or do I have to just go from shop to shop asking?

Re: Tattoos and Piercings in Switzerland

It's also worth buying Tätowier Magazin and checking out the classified ads. You can also place an ad yourself, saying you are looking for a studio to teach you how to pierce.
