I still do tattoo design when I get a referral, but I no longer really seek the work or practice on skin.
I worked a few years at a shop in Roanoke, Virginia, and it is not so much a 'creative endeavor' as it is a mind numbing task. The most delightful part of the day would be the occassional kid who would turn white while getting work done and barf up his lunch. I kept a clean can with a trash bag to the side for that very purpose. One of those things they can't teach you in art school that you just have to learn on your own.

I draw mainly, write a little, but mostly I daydream, if you count that as a medium. Too many daydreams, so little time. :(

whimsy grabs me and I'll paint something

I used to draw a lot in high school, then I mostly stopped, and now I'm trying to do it more again (this time with a Wacom.)
I make web pages, like this one.
Is programming creative? I think so... and I do that too.
I tried writing music in college. It was fun, but I don't think I can do much with it unless I devote a lot more time to it.
And.... I don't do any writing that you'd consider "Real" writing, but it seems like the endless emails, design docs, and messageboard posts require SOME sort of craftwork.

I am not a mapper. I don't even know whether I'm creative or not.
I do paint toy soldiers though, I'm pretty good (and creative I think), at that.

I used to paint and modify GW for years - I even had a converted imperator chaos titan fully painted and with rules to match. I drew alot, my biggest pictures being a1 or so. I messed around with music quite a bit, hacking stuff togther but rarely getting anything genuinely good. I've also mapped for a long time, maybe five years in various games, though with few releases.
Recently my creative drive has pretty much died - mainly through working in games, which quickly dulls any creativity since being creative is your job, which takes some of the fun out of it.
The only other outlets I still regularly pursue are writing short stories and mapping.

written fiction, drawn much in pencil and conte pastel, sculpted a bit, barely pushed my head into digital paint, had fun with the Renderman Shading Language, and I want to get back to all of these things, but not, of course, enough to actually start, hence the total absence of the 'art' section of my site for so long. also, I write run-on sentences.
I've also designed and written more than a few websites for myself and a PBEM sim I've been known to host off and on. I'm doing another right now.
