Girls and tattoos/piercings? 9 Years ago Karma: 0  
Hello, I made an account specifically to ask this.
I don't know if this is already covered and I saw a few topics on tattoos, but none specifically matched mine. I know that tattoos are frowned upon in Japanese culture, though the younger generation is a bit more open to it all. However, they still don't allow people in onsens if you have a tattoo, right? Does this apply to woman as well? The whole tattoo-criminal thing started from the yakuza, or at least, that's what I found out from self research. And yakuza members were only men. So, would they kick me out of the onsen if I came in with my tattoo? It's not a scary big one, but I have several small to medium sized ones. (One on my wrist, my hip, and my back shoulder. Also, what about piercings? I don't have any besides the ones on my ears. And in total, I have seven piercings on my ears. Three on one ear and two on the other along with my industrial (so I guess that counts as two more?). Ahh, sorry for this being long. I'm not very good at explaining things, so it may sound a bit staggered. Anyways, thank you for your time! (:

Hi

My suggestion is to cover the tattoos and not mention them (to be honest.. they are seen as rough and slutty here.. sorry) and remove all pierces except for one in each ear.

Of course, you can choose to show them.. but doors will close to you.

Thanks for your reply! And gahh. ;n; It's not like I have big ugly tattoos, my tattoos look artsy in my opinion. But I guess I could understand the earring thing. Even people where I live say my piercings are a bit wild. Should I shrink my gauge size too, then? It's only a 4.

Oh, I just finished the video. Sighh, that's sad news for me. At least my tattoos are small. (:
