never cruised before&have a ? about piercings/tattoos
okay, so my first cruise will be in May 2008 and i'm really excited...but i have a few questions..first i guess i should say i'm a little more on the 'punk' side..by the way i dress and the music i'm into...as of right now, i have my nose pierced and also under my tongue...i will be 18 on December 27, 2007, and i am going to get 2 tattoos on my birthday...and i'm looking forward to getting a few ear piercings that aren't really considered ''normal'' [i guess, whatever ''normal'' means]
i'm getting the industrial, the conch/shell and the helix/rim
and i was just wondering like how well tattoos and piercings are accepted on cruises..like do they care? and will i have to take out my nose ring & cover up the tattoo??
okay cool...like some people were telling me that the people really look down on them and kinda avoid those people...
i was like are you kidding me???
it kills me how close-minded some people can be..
lmao. has anyone ever read the cruise gripes board?
apparentley there are some really close minded people there.
some of them hate to see tattoos and piercings on cruises...
i for one, love them. most younger people are more open minded, so they probably won't mind them either. If someone has a problem with tell them to stuff it.

i dont think piercings and tattoos are a big deal. most people dont care....or iwll think theyre cool (i do... i have my cartilage pierced and im working on convincing my parents to let me get the rook one).
but old people can be close-minded (as you can see in the gripe board). just ignore them. anyways...youll never see them again!!!

even if people are close minded.. just show them that your a good person and people wont care.
i'll be honest.. because i hang out with a more 'conservative' crowd at home.. when i go on vacations and camp and stuff.. its more likely i'll go up to people who are more like my friends at home, but it usually doesnt stay that way. once i see how the person is, i'll go up and talk to them and stuff. a lot of my friends from home are surprised at some of my friends outside school and stuff because of cruises and camp. they're all so much different and not like me. but it opens my mind up to a lot of things. and i'd much rather be friends with someone different from me, then exactly like me.
