I told my parents I'm getting a tattoo done a couple of days ago, which actually went surprisingly well. My mother did the expected fussing about how important it is to make sure they're not visible (I politely disagreed on that point, but she's welcome to her opinion). Compared to coming out as being bi I think it was a breeze.

The bi conversation was a lot more touchy:
Mother (in general conversation): "You do like girls, you are normal aren't you?"
Me: "I'm normal, but I'm also bisexual..."
It didn't go much better for a while after that. On the scale of things, getting a tattoo will probably be a lot easier for them to accept than the fact that I rather fancy men sometimes.

So, have you had to break news to people? How did it go?

I tend to mostly just do something and then let the parents know, but it's more to do with how I tell them. Mum is pretty open minded about stuff a will hear you out, where as Dad can be pretty old fashioned in his attitude to things and is partially deaf (trust me when it comes to my dad this plays a part in the whole senario). So when I need to tell them something I usually go talk it out with mum and let her tell dad. But what tends to happen is mum and me will be chatting about it at a later date and dad'll round and demand to know what were talking about in full detail (except he wont actually listen properly) put his oppinion demanding we listen all the way through (to something which is most offen completely irrelavant or stuff we already talked through) and if we try and interupt to actually turn it into a discussion we'll get shoutted down and made to listen to it all through again untill he feels he's made his point no matter how completely irrelavant it may be. This is actual how alot of conversations go in our house really and also why I tell mum first because it get's very tedious.

Most of my New's breaking these day's in money related, but I know I want to get a tattoo at some point but I wont do it whilst living at home for several reasons. First being, I know my mum doesn't particularly like the idea but generally goes with it's your body and your choice, and second I know dad just plain doesn't want me to, so out of respect for them I wont do it whilst living here. So I'm not to sure if I'd actually bother telling them when I did.
