Okay, Iím not a preacher, and Iím certainly not your mother, so I wouldnít presume to tell you how to run your life and what decisions to make. I can, however, share with you some things Iíve learned talking to others who are a bit older and, dare I say it, wiser than I am. Itís amazing how much wisdom you gain in high school alone, not to mention college and then the ďreal world.Ē Take it or leave it, but here are five things youíre going to wish you never did.

Get a Visible Tattoo

Itís one thing to get a small tattoo in a spot nobody can normally see, like your back or maybe your hip bone. Those tattoos you can flaunt while youíre young at the beach, where such a thing is appropriate. But if you get a tattoo on your ankle, your calf, your upper arm, your neck or your face, youíre going to likely wish you hadnít later.

Sure it might be cool to be in high school with a neat decal on the back of your neck, but are you going to want that there on your wedding day? What are you going to do when youíre fifty and cut your hair shorter to be more stylish and that old, now sagging tattoo is standing out on the back of your neck? This of placing your tattoo with this in mind Ė if itís visible in a wedding dress, prom dress or business suit, start saving up for removal Ė that tattoo can actually keep you from getting a job someday (in certain industries, of course.)

Have Drunken or Obscene Exploits

It might be so fun to get wasted with your friend and dance like a maniac on the table. Unfortunately itís not going to be nearly as fun when the pictures get out on the internet. If you have a habit of taking compromising pictures and videos Ė and those can be as simple as being underage with an obvious drink in your hand, you can regret it later.

Once a picture goes live online, itís there for the world to see. Many employers are now doing a quick Google Search of potential employees to see what they find Ė and itís very likely those pictures will appear again. Donít ruin your future before it even begins. Use common sense and help your friends use a bit, too.

Ruin a Friendship over a Boy

Your friends are your life line through most of your teenage years. If you donít have a close network of friends around you, these years can be tough. Please donít do anything that might destroy a friendship, especially over a boy. Itís not that the boy isnít special, because he probably is, but itís more important to be honest with your friends about your feelings and then protecting that friendship by agreeing for neither person to date him Ė maybe just include him in your circle. If you like your friendís boyfriend Ė itís too late, heís already picked her and you should value the friendship more than the guy. So go find a new guy to crush on instead.

I don't agree with the first point. As long as you don't get something stupid, there should be no reason to hide your tattoo. I, for one, would never get anything that I felt I had to hide from people. I understand that sometimes they can hinder you from getting a job, but, really, what's the big deal about people seeing it when you're in your wedding dress?

HAHAHAHAHA!!! XD

Miranda...Aaron had those gauges once upon a time. He had a size 4, which is actually quite small, considering... But yeah, he had to take them out for work, they actually told him, "You fit the job perfectly, but those earrings have to go". He took them out and the holes have shrunk to a size 12 (which is smaller, just a LITTLE bit bigger than a standard size earring). Me? I'm glad they're gone on most days. But I'll admit that they make him look smex.y when it's appropriate xD Any larger though, and I probably would have turned right back around on a plane home xD

I'm on the wall for piercings. I've wanted a belly button ring before...don't anymore. There's no point. I wanted a little stud in my nose...but meh. I'm happy without too. I have a third hole in my ear's cartalidge, but anymore than those 3 total and I'd feel overboard.

I guess I'm just not that into body=canvas thing?

I'd say the same for piercings, unless they're either a) in your ears, b) in discrete places or c) small. Having huge spikes sticking out of your eyebrows is not going to endear a future boss.

I also am not overly keen on those piercings where the lobe gets all stretched out.

The first point is so big and goes hand in hand with not planning your tattoos! My stepsister, upon turning 18, ran out and just got a bunch and filled her face with metal. While I'm pretty liberal about those things, I'm not the one employing her. She is jobless and her highly visible work, which she did without thinking about the future, is keeping her from supporting herself. So silly, especially since managing to get non-visible tattoos is so easy! I have several planned for my hips/back/chest, where it will not sag or stretch terribly or prevent me from working.

And boys, ugh. Word to the wise, the same applies to guys you want to see or are seeing that your friends warn you about. They're usually right! Friends before boys.

I like the first point, lol. Has anyone ever seen the Carlos Mencia joke about tatoos? To put it less obscenely, he said that a girl should never get a tatoo of a cute unicorn, because it's not thinking long-term. She'll regret it when one day that cute little unicorn looks like a confused giraffe. xD

I want a tatoo, but I want it in an appropriate place. The waistline of my back, or somewhere like it. A place for the beach/fun times. I'd also thought of a tattoo ring to go underneath my wedding bands for a major anniversary. But we'll see. It's definately hidden, lol.

I've never had to deal with the other two things though...so I guess I'm doing good then, right? xD

Couldn't agree more with all those points, especially the third one. I've always said; friends should be valued before boyfs. After all, a girl needs her friends about her at all times. And you definitely should not drop your friends for your boyf.
