I know a really beautiful and intelligent woman that is into the huge hole in the ear lobes and lip rings. I just don't get it. What does it mean when someone is into a lot of iron on the face that really doesn't need it. Are they starved for attention or what?

It's a way to piss off the parents, mostly. You can easily see who has had an eyebrow piercing because there's always a scar.

I don't get the facial piercing thing... it looks painful, and in my opinion it looks bad. I'm not sure of the names, but the labrets, marilyns, lips, eyebrows.... I find that very unappealing and it bothers me to see them. I know I may be judgemental, I'm sorry. Noses errr.... that can look alright, but really for me.

The ears thing, well mine are pierced, but just one in each and that is OK by me. I guess 2 sets would be OK, I am just in no mood to ever do that.

What bothers me, and Ive noticed it on some teenage boys is the ones that have the gigantic hollow things in their ears. I don't know what they are called, but that is really offputting to see. I have to wonder if there is the slightest possibility those gaping holes in their earlobes would ever grow back. I end to doubt it.

Another thing that really bothers me is seeing pierced tongues.... I'm sorry, that is just gross.

And, yea, what is that thing people put in their ears that is or makes it look as if they have a big HOLE in the ear?? OMG-disgusting

Some of it is for attention, some of it is to tick off the parentals, some of it is just for adornment and some people just like getting piercing/tattoos. It doesn't necessarily mean anything.

Personally, I don't really get the whole "flesh tunnels" thing, AKA the giant gaping holes or the over-piercing, but I do have my ear and lip pierced and see no problem with it.

Oh, c'mon now...put some blinders on. I may not personally appreciate certain practices but vomiting is uncalled for.

It's called a GROMMET. The solid inserts are PLUGS.

This is an amusing thread.

well I once had a boss tell me he would have hired the kid but when he was told to remove the face jewelry he would not even consider it . I cant believe these kids wont think about getting a decent job in a respectable environment unless they can have this face jewelry . It is getting to the point of ridiculous . I think it looks really bad as well and I want so bad to walk up to these kids and say do you want a decent job in a decent place ? if so remove the face jewelry because no decent place to work will hire you with that crap in your face .

I find it really amusing how people will be so judgemental about piercings that they don't have, but their own piercings (yes, ear piercings are still piercings) are just fine.
