Well to me attractive doesn't equal my personal ideal look. I find different styles attractive in different ways, provided the person is attractive physically and maintains a healthy, harmonious looking appearance.

I like them if it's the only facial piercing someone has, same with dermals. It does not look good paired with lip/nose /eyebrow piercings. 2 dermals can look okay if they are symmetrical on the face, or even 3 small ones grouped together (around the eye is where I usually see groups of 3). I don't think they are trashy but even so they are removable and much less of a commitment than a tattoo. I think some trashy people do tend to get these types of piercings but in that case it is not the piercings that give away their trashiness, it's usually the way they dress, act, and carry themselves.

I'll 'express myself' however I please and just because you chose a generic flash tattoo and had it put in a very bad place on your body doesn't mean everyone else makes those same bad decisions.
Cement!

Um...one day a lesbian was flirting with me and gave me a sticker version. I thought it was amusing. Then it fell off 20 minutes later. Oh well.

I agree completely. There are some trashy women around here that carry Coach purses, too, but I am not about to stop carrying my purse around because of it. I associate body mods more with the creative type.

The only thing that bugs me with piercings like the monroe or labret is when the post is too long. Ruins the look.

Looks like too much work to take care off, remove for formal occasions, clean, etc.

Has anyone ever imagined what having a cold would be like with a nose piercing?

it is ugly, that girl in the picture is ugly.
moles are ugly, i hate them, if I had any on my face i would remove them.
I think girls with moles on their faces should remove them also, they are ugly.
the MM mole is ugly.

I used to have a nose piercing and it was no big deal when I had a cold. I had to be a bit more aware when I blew my nose as the twisty part of the post inside the nose can catch mucus but it didn't happen very often. Not a big deal

Oh, and the monroe's are easy to take out as they go all the way through, no harder than ear piercings. Dermals you can't easily remove and put back in, though.

I don't really care for piercings but that one done right looks so cute on rock a billy types or any "youthful" more edgey type of look.

It looks horrible to me when the post is too long, the piece is too large for the face or its on someone that dresses sloppy/dirty.

You get them done at a piecing shop/tattoo parlor.

I personally would never get anything on my face like that because it would look beyond stupid on me. I have a pixie face and I think it looks best on wide "bombshell" classic glamor shaped faces like well...Ms. Monroe.

Don't have to imagine.
I have one of my nostrils pierced twice.
Getting a cold is an unpleasant experience, just like it was before I pierced my nose.
Does snot get on my piercings? Yes. Does it wash off? Yes. Is it a big deal? No
