I don't have any as pets, but in the area surrounding my workshop, which is in a rural area, we get them all the time.

 

It is really nice having a break in summer and watching these little guys wander all over the piles of bricks and stuff outside. They tend not to come out in winter unless it is a sunny day, then they bask in the sun.

 

I also have one that hides in my letter-box at my house.

One of the reasons I love going to Bali is to see the geckos. Some of them grow to the size of my forearm. And they actually say 'gecko!' quite loudly. I accidently brought one home in my luggage once. He may be growing very large somewhere in Osaka.

 

I think if I were to get a tattoo, I'd have an octopus done. Suitable for someone with the first name of 'Ocean', and a very tight hug.

Like a good grip them Ocean?

 

I think you could do better than an Octopus though, how about a nice bunny rabbit or some daffodils or something.

Mediocre minds must think alike!

 

I've got a gecko tat too - but coloured, and on my lower back. Same reason - the rock climbing.

 

I'm moving to Japan in a couple of months - has anyone with a tat had any trouble with being allowed into onsen or public baths, because of the whole 'yakuza' connotation?

Mmmmm.... probably not. The flight is booked for either 27 or 28 July, so I think I'll be tying up loose ends, and doing final packing at that stage.

 

Would have liked to go to SIC, but maybe next year!

I don't really get why people want to tattoo themseles for life. But hey if you want to.

 

Nice gecko, Raury.

 

I had a girlfriend last year who had a very small heart on her lower back. It was very pretty.

A few years ago you would see Japanese young people with transfer 'tattoos'. These always looked very sharp and clear which is how you could tell they were transfers. Now though, there are more real tattoos, even in Suwa which is not such a fashion capital (unless schoolboys wearing their trousers round their knees is a sign of a trend-setting town...)

 

How about piercings? Anybody got their belly-button or tongue pierced? Nipple rings?(photos please) Shrapnel dangling from the lower lip?
