i have 3. i just got 2 of them 2 days ago. i got the top and bottom of my belly button done. i had the top done when i was 16 but it fell out and just got it redone. i'm 18 now. but i love the way it looks with both the top and bottom done. i also have my tongue pierced and i'm looking to get more such as surface piercings. so what do you have pierced and what do you think of them? if you dont have anything pierced what do you not like about it and why?

I have my belly button and my lip pierced. My 14 year old daughter just got her belly button done. Obviously I don't think there's anything wrong with them. On most people, though, I don't think the eyebrow looks good. I'm thinking about doing my nose.

i think the nose piercings are cute. i'm thinking about doing that as well. they're so little and they're not too noticeable. which as a waitress is good. some people dont look good with the eyebrow done it all depends on the person and i would like my eyebrow done but horizontal not vertical.

I've never seen eyebrow piercing done horizontally. Sounds interesting, I'd like to see how that looks. As far as the nose, yes I think it's very cute - especially with a tiny stud. I want one that looks like a tiny diamond.

my belly button didnt hurt much at all the bottom was worse than the top but it was tolerable and it's only painful for a second. i am allergic to ear piercings. for some reason my ears are too sensitive but i do fine with my other piercins. weird?

I have my ears done but I am of the older generation lol , My granddaughter who is 17 has her belly button done , I thought it would be horrible but it is really quite nice , my hairdresser has her tongue done but I am not too keen on that , the beauty of a piercing is as you get old it can heal up , not like a tattoo , with them you are stuck forever , good luck , xx

That's cool that your granddaughter has her belly button done and your hairdresser has her tongue done. It is good that you can take them out if you don't want them anymore though. Thanks for responding.

I do not like piercings.. Sometimes they may look good but may cause problems if not properly cared of..

Nothing wrong with not liking piercings. They could cause problems if you don't take care of them, but if you aren't going to take care of them then why get them. That's what I think. Thanks for responding

I don't have any piercing because I am allergic to metal - pretty bad too - but I do like some of them. If I wasn't allergic, and if I wasn't so old - :) - and if I was a bit thinner, I would probably get my belly bottom pierced. I really like the way it looks. I would not pierce my tongue - because no matter what people say, it is something that can attract infection and also scrape teeth enamel. I think that piercings are like everything else in life, nice if done with taste and moderation.

I'm allergic to all metal in my ears but nowhere else. Yea it can scrape teeth enamel if you wear the metal bars. I wear acrylic so I don't mess my teeth up. I agree with you about your little philosophy. That's the only word I could come up with. Thanks for responding.

I love my navel piercing and I didn't regret having my navel pierced. I'm planning to have my tongue pierced but I'm still having second thoughts about it. Nothing is wrong with body piercings as well as with body tattoes. They're cool!!! ;) So please don't judge those people who have piercings or tattoes... Get to know them before you conclude.

I don't regret any of my piercings and don't plan to regret any of the ones I do get in the future. I also like tattoos. They're so unique to each person. Nope I don't judge anyone. Thanks for responding

I have only ever had my ears pierced. But I like body piercings. I think they look great and so individual. If I was a lot younger I am sure I would have had some done myself. I'm not keen on the ones people have in their tongue but other than those I like them.

I don't have any but it's not because I hate them it's just because I don't want any (Or maybe my girlfriend don't want me to have then :) ) But I would really like to kiss some girl with a piercing in the tong. Maybe I can convince my girlfriend to make one.

wow!. i think that piercings are nice and i dont have nay issues regarding how much is too much piercings and all. i have 6 pirecings in the ear. 4 in the right and 2 in the left ear. i was planning to have a tongue ring but then it costs 800 pesos and id rather spend that money on food than a tongue ring. anyways if my mom would just give me extra and if i can save for that i think my next project will be the tounge ring, then the belly and then back to my earlobes again.

Is 800 pesos a lot. I don't know how much that would be in $. I got my tongue done for $25 US. I did the top and bottom of my belly button for $80 US. good luck on saving for your tongue ring and belly button ring. thanks for responding

I would personally love to have body peircings but my parents and relatives do not support this idea. If I ever got a chance to have one, I would have it on my eyebrow and earlobe. These are my favourite

I have seven piercings so far and I am nowhere near finished. I also have five tattoos and 1 brand. Each tattoo represents an important step in my life. The piercings are more for fun than the tattoo and brand. I can't really explain why I get piercings. I guess I just like to keep life interesting. I also love to have people come up to me and ask "why?" or "Did that hurt?".

You're a lot further on than I am. I want a tattoo very much. I want around 3 maybe more. I want the tattoos to be special to me as well. That's why I don't know what I want yet. I don't know anything about branding expect it's hot. Thanks for responding

i don't like piercings. i am afraid to be pierced. even with needles, i am afraid... but, it's not the main reason i dont have one. it's just i don't want to pierce my body. any part of it. and the complications that may arise with regards to it. it will limit my blood donating powers. :)

Ive got my nose and ears pierced. I had pierced my eyebrow but it tore off one night while I was sleeping. Id like to do my belly button but maybe after a while because I have to loose this little tummy before im ready to show everyone my belly button.

I thought about getting my nose pierced. They're really cute and so small. That must have hurt when your eyebrow ring was torn off. I need to loose a little bit of tummy too. I'm not showing it to anyone until I do. Thanks for responding

I love body piercings. I also have the top and botton of my navel done. Along with that I have a piercing in my septum, two in my bottom lip, my tongue, three in each ear and one "below the belt". I used to have an anti-eyebow, but I've let it close. I haven't gotten a new piercing in three years and am itching to get another one soon.

I have my ear pierced when I was a baby, but other than that no more. I am not against piercing for others, but Im against piercing of my body ahhahaha It must have hurt!! Anyways, I value my body (and Im not saying you dont) the way it is, without any attachment to it. I have also heard many things that piercing can cause infection to the skin and many others things that I would not want to happen to me. So I think that I better leave it as it is, because I rather not pay for something bad to happen :)

honestly it really doesnt hurt at all. i understand where you are coming from because i was raised the way you have mentioned. if the piercing isn't done right or you don't take care of it the way you're supposed to then yes it can cause infection. i haven't had an infection yet but i got mine done by well known professionals and took care of it like i was told. i worry that i may get an infection but thank god i haven't yet. thanks for responding
