Summary of Question:Sikh, Dharma, & Rock 'N Roll

I know that there are arleady Q&A's about Tattoo's and Piercings but this is more of an argument about how they will affect your spirituality.

I am an Amritdhari Sikh and play guitar in a Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band and dedicate a lot of my time towards putting out an album(Odd, I know, lol). B4 I became Amritdhari I lived the true Rock 'N Roll lifestyle, and was also into heavy drug use(so you can see how the whole rock thing started). In my music I write about positive things in an attempt to uplift people through positive messages(Thanks to an amazing and inspiring man named Guru Fatha Singh Khalsa), I am a Rocker and at the same time a Sikh(and loving it!). I do want to get tattoo's and a peircing. I already wear white contact lenses and don't feel that they have changed me in any way. Here's the thing, will these types of things really affect my spiritualty? Will they change me as a person? I personally don't think so. I may have changed my body but my thoughts are still clear and I don't feel that I am harming me or anybody else in any way.

Please Share your thoughts...

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa! Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

*Don't worry I'm 90% sure I won't be getting tattoo's, etc. But there's always that 10%!, lol. Thanks.
