i think that piercings, other than ears, look dirty. It's my opinion. I'm interested in other opinions. why do piercings attract you? Do you find them sexy? Let me know. Force my mind opened. Thanks.

People get them for different reasons. Its fine to think they're "dirty looking" but don't judge someone for having them.

I judge no one. iT'S whats inside that matters. My post was strictly about asthetics.

I have no problems with piercings and I don't think they look dirty. Nonetheless I don't want to have more *holes* then the one I already have in my ear. People have to know for themself if they like it, want them,...

I have my belly done I got it when I was 18 years old and I loved it. I'm not one to show my body so I can't say lots of people saw it unless I was swimming. I took it out when I was about 6 months pregant and I haven't put it back in and my son is just about a year old now. I think I want to put it back in but I'm not sure. Now I don't like to see people with piercings in the face on people. I understand people like to express themeselves so I guess do whatever makes you happy but it's not something I would do or would want my child to do.

Piercings are sexy sometimes. It all depends on where its at and if you have the right body for it. Sometimes to me people over do the piercing things. Nipple piercings IMO are very unnecessary and looks disgusting. Nose piercings looks all but to weird. Tounge piercings look like they get in the way. SO I guess piercings do look kinda tacky. It really looks tack to me when a person has more that 3 visible piercings.

body piercings - I love this!!
It depends on whats pierced and who its on really....I mean I'm all for all forms of body art/modification..thats not to say of course that I'd be willing to do all forms to myself though....On some guys, (and gals) yes I do find some piercings very sexy actually...Why do I like them..for me getting the piercing itself was the rush for me...the pain factor especially when getting a certain neather area piercing done was a rush and I'm actually planning on getting it done two more times:-)... I wish I was actually b@llsy enough to get my back pierced and chained and wings etc (like in the pic) cause I just LOVE that... much like tats though, its definately not for everyone by any means..its definately an "aquired" taste of sorts ya know..

Yeah, it must be jsut me and my OCD. I find most non ear piercings to be dirty and gross. On the other hand, I do find most tatoos to be artistic and creative. Is that wierd??

I basically agree with you, piercing should be only for the ear and only on females. Everyone has gotten caught up in the fad, and most people do it because they think it looks cute, but in most cases it looks disgusting. We have to keep in mind that the body is the temple of the Lord and it is being defiled when holes are placed where they should not be. The same applies to tattoo. There is nothing sexy about them.

I wouldn't go as far as you brownbeauty. Piercings are not my taste, but I would never seek to condemn a person for doing it. Neither would God, I think. if you believee that ear piercings are OK, but no other piercings, I would encourage you to re read the writings of the apostle paul in his letters ot the romans where he states that any adornment is akin to idolatry. That would state that ear piercings is as bad as tatoos and piercings elsewhere.

I think piercings are really pretty and nice. And as the other person said, if you think piercings are a defilement to the body then why are ear piercings ok? And if you read the bible, the ancient hebrews would put a ring through their fiancee's nose instead of using a finger ring like people do now. so.... Also, you could look at like this: people who are getting piercings or tattoos are adding art to their body, they are celebrating their body, decorating the temple if you will.

I agree. It's not a defilement of the body. For me it's just a matter of personal taste. I don't find it attractive. I might be getting old. LOL. On the other hand, I do dig tatoos. Go figure.

I like all sorts of piercings and tattoos, i think they are interesting and add character to the form. I have had several piercings in my life--tongue, nipples, septum, ears (lobes and upper ear). Now the only one i have is my septum ring which I flip upside down at work (i am a therapist) I have one tattoo on my upper back that I designed myself of a flower with an electrical plug for a stem and a USB symbol growing out of its center. I would like to get more work done but won't go in until i am sure exactly of what i want. I also want to get my belly button done because I finally have a nice enough belly to show it off! That will probably be the next thing I do...

See, that's the thing. I have respect for all who wish to express themselves through tatts or piercings. I just find the piercings unappealing to the eye. Tattoes, on the other hand, I find fascinating. I especially dig the art that tells a story. It's a personal preference thing. I find most piercings to be ugly and dirty looking. Could my mind be closing in my age (38) LOL. I don't know. I do know that my 13 year old wants a belly ring and I wont let her. I told her that she can get it done when she is 16, just becuse I think it is a more mature age and she can better decide if it is something she wants to do or something she is just doing because her friends are doing it. I'm also kind of hoping she'll change her mind. LOL

I have my ears and nose pierced although I don't always wear a nose stud. I like facial piercings - personally I think they look cool but I wouldn't get anymore done because I think I'm getting a little "mature" for eyebrow piercings etc now lol! I think belly button piercings look good although I don't have the belly for it so it would be wasted on me. Any other body piercings just give me the horrors. Even the idea of nipple piercings or any of the "down below" ones makes me cringe. It's not a good look! Oh and tongue piercings - ghastly! I can't talk to someone that has their tongue pierced - it makes me feel ill.

I can't talk to someone who has a tongue piercing because I can't understand them. It's worse than the first day in braces. Oh damm. When did I get so old. LOL

I don't think there's anything hotter than a woman with a pierced belly button. I find just the slightest glimpse of that to be very sexy. I myself have 4 piercing but all in the ears. I often toyed with the idea of getting my nose or eyebrow done but just never got around to it. As you can probably tell by my tattooed appearance I really like ink and piercings

As a woman who has had 5 kids and two additional pregnancies, a belly ring would not suit me. The problem with nose or eyebrow rings is that they just seem dirty to me. Maybe I am just getting old. Oddly enough, tatoos are very sexy. especially tatoos that have meaning. I guess I'm a bit earthy.

my husband has an earing. I have three holes in each ear. The rest just doesn't attract me. Maybe I am just old

Well, I have never gave thought about the piercings too deeply but I think I would love to see guys piercing near eyebrow. I feel that it's really sexy. And girls with belly button piercing are sexy as well.

It is a form of self expression.I don't think it is dirty or lower classed . It is just a choice. Like everyone else,there are good and bad people that have piercings.

I think a nose and eyebrow piercing is very attractive if on the right face!!LOL As for belly button and tongue piercing, it has become so popular over here, it has lost its appeal and usually gives the statement 'fashion victim' rather than what it used to represent. The thing I find with tongue piercing is it usually changes peoples voices and they tend to sound funny. A girl I knew had it done and one day it became really swollen, I would fear blood poisoning, so for me all I have is my ears pierced.

I don't think it's that they look dirty, I just don't like the idea of having to put a hole in one's body for the sake of fashion. I am 25 years old and I do not have my ears pierced. I don't plan to get them pierced eithe.

I don't find that they look 'dirty' per se. I do think that many get them just to 'look cool.' If someone wants a piercing in their body, that is their business and it doesn't bother me. I have one piercing in each ear and that is enough for me. To me, whether a piercing looks dirty is more of the wearer's entire appearance more so than the piercings.

Tattoos and piercings are a personal preference thing. They are not for everyone but that does not mean that if someone has one that the non tattoos or pierced people should condemn those that have them. I have a tattoo that I got while in the army because I thought that the woman that was doing thee tattooing would go out with me but I found out that she did not go out with her clients. Lately I have been toying with the idea of piercing my ears so that I can wear some of the ear rings that I put together (I am native American and completely straight)
