We have chosen the topic "Body art" because we thought it was the most exciting topic, and it was the topic that we found most interesting.
Body art is often:

Tattoos:

Some people get many tattoos all over their body, and some others just get 1 or 2. Many people gets tattoos because it reminds them of some people who had died, or just a good friend or their family. Tattoos can be just the size you want them to, and some people has tattoos all over their body, then it almost look like some close they are wearing.
It really hurts to get a tattoo, but that doesn’t keep people away from getting it. They make the tattoo by sticking a needle in your skin, with some colour on the needle and then you get your tattoo.


Piercings:
Once people only got pierced in their ears but now they get pierced all over their body. Some people still get pierced in their ears but they make the holes bigger, and now a days you can get pierced almost wherever you want, in your nose, eyebrow, lips, you name it...

Body art is a way to people to express themselves. Everyone has different styles, some really different from ours. Lots of piercings and tattoos don't look very good, but that just depends on your opinion. One or two tattoos or piercings, that's cool, it gives you your own original style, but ten it's too much. It depends on the tattoo too. I, personally don't like to see lots of piercings in people, but other like it.
If a person has many tattoos or many piercings, that's because he/she like it, and, even if we don't agree with it, we shouldn't make fun of them or judge them, because it's their style, it's them expressing themselves. And we are in no place to think that only what WE like its right and that what THEY like isn't. That's just being unfair.

BUT! Having your body tattooed or pierced can be dangerous. Because it can give infections and a if you want to remove your tattoo is it very expensive.
Some tattoos that goes wrong:

I think you got the idea.
So, yeah, it causes infections and it looks really bad

Some people are really creative and get some very special tattoos…

This tattoo is also very funny. I'd love to see the faces of the people he shows his tongue.

So some people get beautiful tattoos and piercings, and some get very creative ones, and some get piercings and tattoos which go wrong. But most of them are pretty.
