I personally hate 90% them. Earrings I sometimes like, but only on women. I refuse to get one. I’d rather stab my hand to the table, lol.
Your views on them? Do you think they are attractive? Why do you think it is such a fad these days?
Mhmm. I don’t mind nose piercings, either. (except septum – I’ve never seen anyone pull that off except Sierra Kusterback from VersaEmerge) But I think I’ll just stick with my ear. They’re just fun for a while & when you’re sick of them, ya just take em out.
I had both of my ears pierced for a long time during my early 20’s/bartending days. But now I’m old so it’d be weird to be sporting them in the office. :P
I like them though. As long as a woman doesn’t mutilate her face with them or get really big gauges going. But to each his own!
I had a good buddy who had a prince albert and he had a personal record of hanging 8 sets of keys from it. I forced him to break his record at a party and gathered everyones’ key sets. Needless to say he broke his record and some girls weren’t too happy as he walked out of the bathroom with a 3 pound mass of keys (some of them theirs) hanging from his junk by his piercing. That’s my piercings story. Thank you.
I have my nose done. And each ear has 3 holes.
I used to have my eyebrow, tongue, navel…annnnd a couple of others.
But then I got parrots and uh, NOT a wise choice to have “Oooh SHINY!” things filling holes in your body around bird beaks.
As for what do I THINK about them? I think they are the gateway drug to tattoos. ;)
And that BOTH tats and piercings should only be used for enhancing the body part they are on.
That’s a damn good question Alex. I never got a good answer out of him as to why. But, he’s a madman.
Whatever happened to belly button piercings? Do the ladies ever do that anymore? I mean other than porn stars? Wait, they’re not ladies.
Personally, I love them. I love the thrill of getting them and unlike tattoos, I can always take them out if I ever grow tired of them. I have my ears (two on each side), tragus, nose, belly button and nipples. But I couldn’t ever get anything more on my face, I think thats a little much. Even my nose is a small stud.
I adore the Prince Albert. I don’t have any piercings of my own but perhaps when I feel like it I’ll get my ears pierced. However, on other people I find it sexy when they have genital or nipple piercings but I don’t really like piercings I can see.
The secrecy mixed with the eroticism JUST under the surface is pretty hot to me.
I would never get one just because I’m incredibly uncomfortable with the idea of someone shoving a needle through my skin and then stretching the hole with a chunk of metal. Call me crazy, but that just doesn’t appeal to me.
That said, I have no problem with most piercings on other people. When they go overboard with it and have their face look like it’s held together with thick metal staples, that’s a bit of a turnoff. But individually, piercings don’t bother me. Except lip piercings, those weird me out.
Some people can really pull it off, while some base it on a “coolness” scale. The idea that if you have more then you’re cooler, which is really fucking stupid.
I think it’s really sexy on women. Same goes for tattoos.
I used to be into them. Now I just don’t care about them. I say if people want to get them let ’em. It doesn’t hurt me any. I used to have spider bites, my bridge, septum, smiley, and an anchor. But that was back in my sceney days. I guess I grew out of it. But some of my friends still have plugs. It’s not for me but it seems like there are a lot of other things in the world that are more important to worry about rather than what body modifications people decide to apply to themselves.
I lika da piercing on the top of the ear, whatever thats called. And those ones on hips or lower back. Butttt. I would never get one myself. I also like people who dont have piercings. And side nose piercings are cool too. I think it adds character. But dont see the logic of why you would want one. No big deal though..
I have my ears pierced, and I like them in moderation on other people. Chicks with over five piercings per ear is a bit much and any facial pircings more than a nose ring gets kinda crazy too. I wouldn’t call piercing a fad because, if I’m not mistaken, lots of cultures throughout time had them. However, I’m no authority on the matter so I guess you should check google before trusting me.
I’ve got 3 on my left (1 at the top), 2 on my right, and 1 nose. I’m getting 2 more piercing on the ears too. Piercings are alright, not a big deal- there just there to add a little flare.
I have one cartilage piercing and I like it because of the story behind it.
On others, they are awesome markers of individuality.
@alex, I have a few on my ears. My nose, monroe, 2 micro dermals in the back of my neck and 2 micro dermals on my clavicle.
I have never actually thought about what attracts me to piercings. I guess I just like the way it looks. It’s like decoration that you can take out when you get sick of it ;p
Never had a piercing and doubt I ever will, not tattoos either. I did get a small home made tat when I was 16, but I don’t intend to add. With other people I don’t care what they want to do, the only real objection I have is with bellybutton piercings on women, I have a bellybutton fetish and I like them pristine, not mutilated, but I don’t think it would be a deal breaker.
