I have extensive tattooing on both of my legs. I sometimes consider how much it would suck to lose one of them in an accident.

Which I realize is irrational to be suddenly concerned about because it's not like it'd be any less of a personal tragedy if that happened before I got them tattooed either.

Judging by your username, I'm going to guess your nose.

My left middle finger.  Not sure if I'd be able to drive without it.

My right hand.  I use it all of the time.

I'd have to say my penis.  Something that's never been used has got to be worth a lot, right?

My gut. The prospect of collecting on its loss might be enough to get me off my ass.

Women who insured their legs:

Betty Grable - 1 million (studio publicity stunt)
Rihanna - 1 million
Heidi Klum - 2 million
Tina Turner - 3.2 million
Taylor Swift - 40 million
Mariah Carey 1 billion

From here.

My spine. Paralysis is a biatch.

I would say "brain" or "heart" but at that point it becomes life insurance.

It's also in the linked article if you want to read that too.  Heidi notes that she didn't insure herself and she wasn't the beneficiary.

Has anyone ever collected on one of these things?

My liver. No internal organ has taken as much abuse as it has.

My left thumb about a month ago before the tip got cut off. They made me a new one using a Moburg flap. The tip is still in my freezer I'm thinking of getting it stuffed mounted.

Probably insure my brain against dementia or Alzheimer's.  Make it worthwhile enough that it pays for my continuing care.

Not if they're still walking around.  They might collect the "regular" amount if something happened, like if they broke their leg or something, but they'd pretty much have to lose permanent and total use of them to collect on figures like that.  Chances of that happening with increased coverage like that is pretty slim, so it's a decent bet they won't ever claim the total.  It's really pretty cheap publicity.

My right testicle.

Not even a joke. Due to considerable lifting and pushing on the job, I developed a leaky hydrocele which inflated it to intimidating proportions. It's not to many times in your life when a female doctor gathers all the nurses and assistants around to have a look (with my permission).

Left Hand.

I am a drummer, I can live without the right and be the Def Leppard guy but the left isn't negotiable.
