- Do you or have you ever gotten a tattoo instead of self harming?
- Have you used the pain of getting a tattoo or piercings to help you “get by”, without you physically harming yourself? To keep you from harming yourself?
- Do you tend to get more tattoos when you are manic? or depressed?
For me, yes to all the above.
And here is a photo of one. She was not last-minute, I had wanted to get her for a while. But I was manic when I got her. And about 3 more tattoos within a 2 month period. I was also depressed. I do not regret getting her.
