Hi everyone, this may seem like and odd question, but let’s start with the basics. I am a 23 year old South African that had a total hip replacement 7 months ago. I came across this site at the perfek time, just when the depression of what was going to happen to me set in. Anyway, I read your comments and running times and someday I hope to be able to run too. I haven’t been able to do so comfortably since I was 8. Lets just say, thank you to all you great people showing the world that nothing can stop you from living your life. SO many positive post and comments on this site. It helped me so much, its odd how people you have and never will meet makes you so hopeful and determined to better yourself. Anyway, now for my question, I seem to get no information or people that have tried this. Did anyone get piercings or tattoos after their surgery? I removed all mine (piercings), and being the responsible young adult that I am pretending to be I do not want to make a rash decision to get new ones without advice or evidence of success. Has anyone tried?
