I do not see why not. If you are about to get a tattoo I probably  wouldn't, but just for protection from the sun you should be fine.

You shouldn't, acrylic can have fissures and cracks that can harbour bacteria. Only proper surgical stainless steel or surgical titanium or Niobium should be used or a Bioplast or PTFE based material that can be autoclaved. Acrylics can not be autoclaved without damaging them.

it means NOTHING. stop looking for meaning in all tattoos. many tattoos are simply whimsical and fun or aesthetically pleasing. they don't all mean things. or try asking the person it's on what it means to them.

Yes, in fact it can! Peeling off the skin is peeling off the freshly inserted colour. Scabbing and peeling has to happen on it's own, and you need to procrastinate it as much as possible. Lotioning helps to shove the colour that is bleeding out back into your skin. Lotion religiously, do NOT scratch...

It doesn't hurt when you get it pierced but it does after. It feels sore when you touch around the area where you got it pierced. It should go away in about a month, but just make sure you don't sleep on the side your piercing is on. That can make it hurt more. Make sure you clean it 2 times a day...
