Victor is very much a grownup, despite the fact that she still chooses her shoes based on whether or not they glow in the dark (these do!)

Because she's an adult, she's given this a lot of thought. Technically, what she wants to do is against her religion, but that ship sailed with the bacon cheeseburger, not that she was raised kosher to begin with.

"I've been thinking about tattoos. Nothin' big or elaborate, but... something. I haven't decided what, yet. What would you get?"
12th-Mar-2010 08:19 am (UTC)
I wouldn't get anything because I get bored too quickly, while a tattoo is there for the rest of your life unless you get it lasered off. I have my navel pierced though and change the jewelry on it a lot.
12th-Mar-2010 02:20 pm (UTC)
She stretches out her legs, then tugs them up to sit cross-legged on the couch, hands resting lightly on her knees. "Aaah, yes. I don't have any piercings, myself. What's your favorite sort of jewelry for it?"
13th-Mar-2010 12:41 am (UTC)
I like the things that let a jewel sit right in your bellybutton. In the summer when I'm wearing less clothing I'm more likely to put in something that dangles. I hate hoops though.
13th-Mar-2010 01:49 am (UTC)
"Makes sense, so that way it won't snag on your shirt. And hoops would look kinda silly."
13th-Mar-2010 01:59 am (UTC)
Even aside from the personal pain of snagging, my partner would laugh at me over it. My piercing is a happy surprise for folks lucky enough to see me shirtless.
13th-Mar-2010 03:23 am (UTC)
People who are confident in the way they look just plain make her happy. "That's true! I'd never've guessed. I'm, uh, still not at short sleeves in public."
13th-Mar-2010 04:00 am (UTC)
::The shy didn't survive Rosenkreuz.:: You should go for it. Life's too short.
13th-Mar-2010 04:28 am (UTC)
"I should. I did, at a masquerade, but... folks thought the way I looked was part of a costume. I'm still workin' up to casual nonmasked short sleeves."
13th-Mar-2010 04:32 am (UTC)
Just do it. For the most part people don't notice much about the people around them anyway. If somebody gives you static about it, it's their problem, not yours. People who try to correct strangers have empty lives and way too much time on their hands. They're pitiful.
13th-Mar-2010 04:53 am (UTC)
"Alright," she says, taking a deep breath. She isn't trying to be difficult, she's just ingrained in years of habit. "I'll give it a shot. Ah. At some point, I really will."
13th-Mar-2010 08:06 am (UTC)
Just don't wait until it's too late.

"I always thought a cross somewhere would be good," Ryan muses. "Protection against evil, y'know? But then Rashid said that for it to actually work, I'd have to go through an elaborate ritual, and the cross would have to cover my back, and then Mickey teased me about the time I almost passed out getting a flu shot..."

He trails off and gives Victor a sheepish smile. "Eh, sorry. Tattoos are pretty cool. Are you going to draw it?"
13th-Mar-2010 03:45 am (UTC)
She whistles through her teeth, runs both of her hands back through her hair. "Yeah, that'd be pretty huge, but I like the pragmatic aspect. I think they're pretty cool too, and I might draw it, but... I have a lot to decide."
13th-Mar-2010 03:01 am (UTC)
It has been ages since Mel has seen Victor, but she remembers her! She also remembers that she helped out her boyfriend when he'd been kidnapped.

"You know, if I got one, I think it'd be a pocketwatch or an hourglass. Not sure where. It's never been something that's that big a thing for me, though, so..." a half-shrug.
13th-Mar-2010 03:55 am (UTC)
It's been ages, and Victor recognizes Mel just fine, though the actual events from that time of her life have gone hazy for her. She smiles in recognition, stands up to greet her. "That'd be lovely. And it's real good to see you. I like the idea of using significant symbolism."
13th-Mar-2010 04:08 am (UTC)
"You think? I think it'd be something that'd work pretty well for me. And it's pretty great seeing you too, Vic." Mel gives the other girl a big grin. "What've you been getting into?"
13th-Mar-2010 04:41 am (UTC)
"I concur with you," she says, with a little peaceful grin. "Wanna have a seat? Things've been goin', been building a lot, last semester in college, traveling. Not too much bad, and plenty of good. How've you been?"
13th-Mar-2010 05:20 am (UTC)
Mel takes a seat and grins at Vic. "Well, good to hear. I've been doing pretty good myself. Living with my boyfriend, training, learning, stuff like that. Oh! Victor, I have excellent news," Mel says, extending her left hand. There's a delicate silver ring on her finger. "It's a promise ring," she says, almost glowing with happiness.
13th-Mar-2010 06:08 am (UTC)
"Congratulations!" She settles on down too, folding her hands on her knee primly (or at least trying to be prim, it's a coin-toss with Victor). "Those're all fantastic events. I'm glad of them."
14th-Mar-2010 02:56 am (UTC)
Mel beams. "Thanks, Vic. Have you been doing anything new with your art, or what?" She feels a little guilty for falling out of contact for a while.
15th-Mar-2010 09:51 pm (UTC)
She feels a little questionable about letting herself lose track, too. "Oh, let's see... I'm half-making a tree sculpture. Made a couple robots. A few series-works. Murals, oh, the usual. Made two critters out of living clay, and that was something. They're great creatures!"
14th-Mar-2010 01:44 am (UTC)
"You should be careful with that, it makes for an identifying mark that can be bothersome later." This is the voice of experience, in fact, although he hasn't had much trouble in that department. The list of people who've seen him with his shirt off is a relatively short one, after all.
15th-Mar-2010 09:41 pm (UTC)
"I thought about that. But... if someone can see enough skin to identify me by a tattoo, I'm identifiable anyway. I'm pretty ripped up." She has so much scarring that she's fairly certain a tattoo wouldn't be dreadful, at least not in the identification department. She looks pretty rueful, though.
16th-Mar-2010 01:21 am (UTC)
"Hm. A point. In that case, whatever you like. Green might be good to ask, he's got a few." That may be an understatement, in fact. The Shadow lacks the social skill to make any sympathetic remarks toward Victor over her scars.
18th-Mar-2010 08:16 pm (UTC)
Victor doesn't particularly expect sympathy, so they're all squared away in that case. "Yeah, I just might ask him. I just, well. I've just been thinking on it, nothing's set in stone yet."
18th-Mar-2010 10:11 pm (UTC)
"Think well. It's a kind of voluntary scar." This is not to say he thinks of it as a bad thing. Some scars are almost badges of courage, after all.
18th-Mar-2010 10:19 pm (UTC)
"Absolutely," she says, nodding emphatically. "It's why I wanna do it. People've marked all over me, and I haven't; it's like constant marks of ownership, and I've got none of them. I should have a mark of my own, somethin' I decided for."
15th-Mar-2010 03:07 am (UTC)
Den grins, having just made it back to the Nexus after an unexpected absence, courtesy her male alt. "I actually have one. It's the symbol for Quintessence within one of the symbols for Alchemical Silver. I got it when I was living on my own, so my parents had NO say in it, as I was already an adult at the time... I wanna get a whole lot more tattoos... mostly black and white stuff though. I'm not really one for color, though I do want to get a femme spark over my heart someday."
15th-Mar-2010 09:47 pm (UTC)
"A femme spark?" she asks, peering over at her. Her hands are itching to get a sketchbook and start drawing down ideas. Or at least to start recording potential ideas.
16th-Mar-2010 12:18 am (UTC)
Den nods, "I'm not quite sure exactly how it'll look, but there'll be a lot of blue and pink involved... I kinda wanna base it off of the sparks from Beast Wars or Beast Machines..." She grins sheepishly, "I'm a bit of a Transformers fan-nerd."
