What do you think of piercings?

 Alex Eastman (@alex) 10 years, 6 months ago

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?

Lol I like them, to an extent. I have my industrial and another piercing on my ear that’s really hard to explain and just my earlobes pierced. They’re all usually hidden by my hair anyway but I love what I’ve got!

Ears are fine :) When you get into snake bites, or eyebrow piercings, or nose rings galore or 37 different ear piercings with chains, it gets a little overdone. haha.

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.

ACK!

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.

Yea thats true. A lot of people can pull off a nose piercing and it look good on them. Except gauges. *shudder*. they are okay up to a certain point, then its just nasty. Kid at my school has 1″ gauges in, its freaking nasty, haha.

xD nice one Adam. That is disturbing though… Who would get their dick pierced?? XD That is just something that sounds too painful. hahaha.

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.

Alex Eastman (71) (@alex) 10 years, 6 months ago ago

hahaha. Yea navel piercings are pretty damn sexy. And when I think of navel piercings, I think of porn stars too XD

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 have my lip pierced and also my ears stretched. They were at 5/8’s of an inch, but are back down to a 00.

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.

Matt (6) (@mrgeetah) 10 years, 6 months ago ago

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..

[Hidden]

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.

I have six piercings, I rarely wear them all at once. I think it’s better when they are subtle.

I had 8 all up. They either fell out or I just got over wearing them.

@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.
