I have 11 piercings and want to know if that is some thing that is still attractive these days? Most of them are in my ears, but some of them are naval, labret, and tongue, ect. Should I let them close up and heal?
I'm a little younger than your age group, and I personally don't like piercings. I don't think they're really in style anymore (besides maybe a belly button piercing-- but those things make me cringe. I'd be terrified of it getting ripped out!)-- tattoos are in style (which I'm not a fan of either). I don't judge anyone I see with multiple piercings or treat them differently-- they just aren't to my taste.
Piercings are revolting and make me want to throw up.
If your generation is happy with them, that is fine. Unfortunately, for much of the time your employment depends on my generation. If you do not wish to take our tastes into account, then you will often find you are passed over in preference to people who have a decent appearance.
Unfortunately, this means many of you will remain unemployed benefit scroungers, which to my great regret means you will be subsidised to do nothing from my taxes.
There is no correct answer to this question. It's all personal preference. If you like them then keep them! I think that people are becoming more acceptable of piercings and tattoos and they aren't a career killer like they used to be. When I got hired at my current job I had stretched lobes, an eyebrow ring, and a nose ring and they had no problem with. It's not like I work at some retail store either, I work at a University architecture office and interact with a lot of professionals. Since then I've taken out my plugs and eyebrow ring but it was because I wanted to, not because I felt like I should to please other people.
I have a nose piercing and sometimes wear a small diamond stud in it. I think it's cute as hell but it drives my three year old crazy.
As I'd prefer to NOT have a torn nostril I only wear it out. Ex-husband hated it... current husband is indifferent... but I dated a wonderful Indian guy who found it extremely attractive. I think it's completely personal preference.
I don't think tattoos are necessarily any more 'acceptable', but they can be hidden and oftentimes people get a tattoo for a specific, very personal reason, and people don't generally pierce something for the same sorts of reasons.
I did. All of mine meant and represented some thing. More people are more conservative than I thought I guess, which isn't bad. I just know that I need to be a little more conservative, out of respect for others around me.
My first two tattoos were on my back so they would be always be covered. When I got my third tattoo I decided to get it on my wrist because it is MY body and that is where I wanted it. It's extremely tasteful and a beautiful piece. Personally I find your prejudice to be offensive.
I splashed out on a black Jaeger dress with white polka dots the last time I saw my ex in court. Although he screwed some money out of me, my wonderful barrister succeeded in keeping it at way under half of what my first solicitor had predicted (which is why I sacked her and went to another one who put me onto the barrister).
The total did not menace my house at all. I put on a sad face and sob story, which resulted in the judge giving me 6 months grace to pay. Thus I was able to do it out of subsequent earnings plus sales of some crappy shares without touching my real investments. I reckon the sum did not cover his legal fees either, so I considered the end result a one-nil score in my favour
Subsequently, I wore the dress with red accessories to a friend's wedding )
So, I am finally going to get my nose pierced after YEARS of saying I want to, and was wondering if anyone has had a piercing done with bioflex jewellery from the start? If so, any preference over "metal"...
hey guys Im trying to decide what to pierce whether the naval or the nose, which one do you guys is the best option for me? hmmm. . . .Im interested to hear what you guys think, especially if you have one or the other!
