So I know I've done a post on tattoos and got varied responses from the typical response of 'girls with tattoos look trashy' to 'girls with tattoos are hot'. But what about piercings? I'm not talking about the typical various ear piercings, but piercings such as nose & navel.
I wanted my nose & belly button pierced when I was younger, but didn't even think about asking my mom because I already knew what her answer would be. I was going to get my lip or nose pierced when I was 19, but than I watched my friend get her lip pierced and decided not to. I've decided that since I was able to get two tattoos that I should probably be able to sit through the few seconds of pain of getting something pierced.
I don't have my ears pierced because my mom wouldn't let me do it when I was younger and she has to wear 14k gold when she wears jewelry. As for me, since I don't have pierced ears, I don't know if it would matter if I wore gold or not. When I wear any other kind of jewelry, it doesn't bother me.
My question is, what are your views/opinions on girls with nose & belly button piercings, or piercings in general? For those of you that do have piercings, which hurts less?
Mancouch says: I did an entry about tattoos on women as well and stuck by the credo that tattoos can be sexy and empowering if they stray from convention and has meaning. Piercings are a different story, though, and I don't really think the two are comparable because piercings aren't as readily noticeable and don't hold as much of a stigma in the public eye. In that sense, I think that any kind of piercing, whether it's on the navel or ear, can be sultry and becoming. I love piercings on women.
