10 Things That Should Never Be Missing From Your Relationship

Are You Into Piercings?

A little while back, I asked you "Are You Into Tattoos" and I got a great response, so that got me thinking about other things people do to accent and decorate their bodies - piercings.

It astounds me just how many different places people can get pierced. I'm cool with your basic pierce, like ones on your ear lobe, nose, eyebrow or bellybutton, but the more creative ones, like on your lip, tongue, neck, or below the belt make me a little uncomfortable, to be honest. When I see them I ask myself "How do they eat with that thing?" or "How much did that hurt!?"

So what about you? Are you attracted to people with piercings? Do they turn you off? Are you okay with certain piercings but not okay with others? What I want to know is, when it comes to people you date, are you into piercings?

My husband had an earring and a nose ring back in the day (read: before me :P). Now he has nothing! He also used to have long hair. lol, I always picked on him about all that bc he's 6 years old than me, so he grew up in the 80's when he looked so "cool."

I have my bellybutton, ears, and nipples. But I don't think private ones really count, they're a personal thing.

i´ve had my ears pierced when i was born, and i got my navel pierced 5 years ago, right after my 17th birthday. I lost my ring at the beach this past January,and i´ll get it pierced again pretty soon. I loved it. My dad, 52 and a very formal businessman has an ear pierced, but he can pull it off. On guys I usually like the eyebrow or lips pierced, but that´s about it.

Oh yess I like piercings. And especially on men. I have seven piercings myself, and my boyfriend has his ears gauged to two inches, his labret, pout, nose, septum pieced, and snakebites. People think it's weird I'm attracted to that, but it's something about punctured skin and metal that really turns me on.

i've had just about everything i can get pierced while remaining "subtle". i work with kids, (and went to a private school) so anything obvious is a big no. as of now, i have three holes on each ear lobe, then industrial on the right. on my left i have the typical cartilage piercing, tragus, then a ring through the very top part, its called the daith. none are obnoxious and for the most part are unseen. my hair covers them nicely, but on occasion ill get the "ooo did that hurt" "how did you think of that" etc. on my body i have my tongue that REFUSES to close (i dont wear the jewelry anymore but ive had it since i was 17) and my belly, which ive had since i was 14, and my nose (my fav) since i was 15 which is basically a sparkle. a lot of people dont know i have it done. and call me gross, but i want nipples! my bf says no hahaha but its one of the last non visible piercings i can get! the only reason i wont is the risk to lose feeling.

i have 13 piercings in my ears, and i love each and every one. they all have pretty small earrings and barbells, though, i don't want a bunch of big hoops around/in my ears. i pierced my belly button in high school, but that's long gone. i think i took that out when i was 19. i would pierce my nose, but i don't have the cute nose for it. other than that, i don't want anything else.

I have eight piercings in my ears (six in the lobes and two cartilage) and one in my nostril. It's been a few years since I got anything done, and I'd like some more in my ears (maybe a rook?). And piercings on other people are definitely a turn on. I'm not too into anything below the neck (bellybutton is just okay - anything involving genitalia is right out). Tongue kind of grosses me out if whoever has it is always playing with it. But pretty much anything else is good. Lip piercings can be especially sexy.

I have my ears pierced 3 in each ear. Thats it. Nothing else.I cannot stand people who have thier tongue pierced, and clink it around its annoying. I also think that lip, eyebrow, cheek,nose or whatever area of the face you want is incredibly hideous looking. I work for a clinic and see people in here all the time with infections because of piercings, and i also see people who need alot of dental work done because of tongue piercings, very expensive work.

At 15 I have 6 piercings. The normal stud in each ear, with one second as the one on the other ear was pierced terribly! and wonky. So Im waiting for that to heal. I have a plain cartiledge in my left ear, and then my favourite piercing of all, my scaffold in my right ear. I also have my belly button done once. Going to get my second one done in about a month or so. I also want a lip piercing and a septum piercing. And maybe my cheeks. I'm sure Il add more to my list. But I'm deffinately a piercing kind of person. Piercings over tatoos any day.

I used to have my eyebrow and my tongue pierced. I loved them when I got them, but slowly they stopped feeling relevant to who I am, so I took them out. The eyebrow ring went first (I got it my freshman year of high school, and by the time I hit college every 14 year old in the world had one), and then I took my tongue ring out last year. I do, however, still have my industrial in my ear, and I can't see taking that out anytime soon!

I used to have 4 in my ears, a lip piercing, a nose piercing and a navel piercing. Did they make me happy? Briefly. They're OK I guess but now I realise how trampy I looked with them. It's a phase and I'm over it. =)

lol i think its funny when people say piercings look trashy...its prejudices like that which have turned the world the way it is...speaking generally, most people get piercings as a form of creatively decorating their bodies. I'm sure if you asked people with facial piercings, the ones you find to be trashy, why they got them, you'd be surprised and interested by their answers. Most people assume that I got my tongue pierced in order to improve my oral sex skills...however, I got it pierced in order to help me quit smoking...which it has. I got my nose pierced the day I got my first job. I got my bellybutton pierced the day i turned 16. I got my lip pierced the day my grandfather died...etc etc...piercings arent necessarily a form of rebellion for everyone.

For women, I think the bellybutton, a small nose stud, and ears are all acceptable. For men, maybe one ear piercing. I'm not a fan of all the extra piercings. They freak me out a little. I used to love piercings but I think my tastes are changing as I get older.

I also like piercings because if you decide you no longer want it, all you have to do is take it out. Unlike a tattoo that is more permanent and if you want to get rid of it then its expensive and more difficult. I still want a tattoo though...

I don't think it matters whether someone has piercings or not. Its 2007. There are still a lot of people out there, mostly older people, who still have a problem with it. Took awhile for my dad to get used to my nose piercing. He hated it at first, now he says its nice, because its small. Its always nice to see someone open their mind some.

i love piercings, i would love to get more. that will happen soon enough. i had my industrial pierced and i loved it unfortunately i nearly ripped it out and let my top hole close. i find guys with piercings incredibly attractive. especially eyebrows and lips.

i have 6 piercings and am considering more. i like them on guys too, although i agree with those who said they have to be able to pull them off. but then again, i like guys with tattoos so piercings don't bother me!

i got my ears pierced when i was 6 years old, but i was allergic to silver. my mother was too cheap to spring for the gold, and they didn't have hypoallergenic at the time (i'm 35 on thursday!). they got infected and closed, and i redid them with 2 in each when i was 16. i got SO sick afterward i was out of school for a week. same thing when i got a tattoo at 21. i took that as a sign i didn't need any more piercings/tattoos. i never, ever wear earrings. ;)

I don't mean to offend anyone when i say this, and i'll admit that some people can pull off a cool piercing... but in general, I think they tend to look trashy.
