Tattoos and Piercings Hub
How do you express yourself? Self-expression is different for everyone, but many of us turn to tattoos and piercings as a way of turning our bodies into expressive, unique works of art.
The worlds of tattoos and piercings are as vast and varied as the people who alter their bodies using these techniques. There are simple, minimalist tattoos and highly-complex, maximalist ink that covers entire bodies using all kinds of colors, techniques, and trends. The same goes for piercing: A simple ear piercing gives way to an ear gauge, which gives way to… well, let’s just say there are certainly more extreme paths to take.
Whatever you want done to your body, it’s likely you can do it. (Subdermal implants? Sure!) And at MamasUncut, we celebrate the human body and all that it can do. And so here, we celebrate some of the more creative (and often permanent) ways people adorn their bodies with meaningfully beautiful decorations and works of art.
For the most part, when we talk about tats, we’re talking about permanent ink injected into your skin using a needle. When we say permanent, we mean forever. That’s the beauty of a tattoo: It is with you forever. Of course, that leaves a lot of room for tat fails or regrettable ink. But most people who opt to get inked give a lot of thought to the design, making it one of the more meaningful decisions one can make about their body.
Whether you’re looking for tiny minimalist tats, attention-grabbing neon works of art, charming stick-and-poke tattoo ideas, watercolor wonders, or really any kind of ink, we’ve got a list of stunning body art for you to enjoy.
We’ve also compiled tattoos based on theme: Disney tattoos! Star Wars tattoos! Mental health tattoos! Motherhood tattoos! Best friend tattoos! Meme tattoos! LGBTQ+ tattoos! Whatever you’re looking for — either for tattoo inspiration or just for passing the time — browse our lists above to see some truly beautiful, unique, and wild ink that people have gotten.
When you think of piercings, you probably think of pierced ears. Maybe a nose ring, or a lip ring even. A labret or eyebrow piercing if you grew up in a certain era. But the world of piercing is just as vast as the world of tattoos.
Even ear piercings can get extreme. Think ear gauges. Or think dozens of piercings done to a single ear. But moving away from the ears, what about hand piercings? Back piercings? There are even pierced tattoos!
When it comes to piercings, we like a nice and subtle one as much as the next person, but we are absolutely fascinated by the extreme, creative, and unique ways people use piercings to modify their bodies. In some cases, the more extreme the better.
