The holidays are believed by some to be the worst time to get pierced or tatted. The reasoning behind this is that having a pink (still healing) piercing or fresh tattoo visible at the holiday dinner table may be the catalyst for ‘prickly’ conversation from relatives.
Although that may be true in some respects (depending upon where you get the body art), it may actually be the best time (economically) to get work done since traditionally many shops are slow at this time of the year. So if you are thinking about getting that new body piercing and the cat is already out of the bag (that you do such things), you may be able to get rock-bottom deals on getting it done right now. So treat yourself to that tattoo or body piercing you want and just keep the conversation moving during those long holiday meals 🙂
