    I used to wear fake plugs when I was in my teens, just because I wasn't sure whether I wanted permanently large holes in my lobes. I found it a great way of experimenting without having to 'commit' to it. I didn't start properly stretching my lobes until I turned 30 since I knew it was definitely the way I wanted to go. So I've got nothing against fake plugs at all, and don't think it's cheating.
    Current: 4 Lobes (10mm & 2.4mm), Tongue Web, Navel, Right & Left Nostril, VCH (2mm), Right Rook, Septum (3.2mm), Triangle (2.4mm), Left Tragus

    RIP: 2 Sternum Microdermals, Horizontal Nipples, Right Conch

    Tattoos: Falling Leaves on inner right wrist (AFI), Song Lyrics on right ribs (AFI)

    IMHO, this can be the right way to go about it. If you're not sure what you really want to do, and you have a fake plug/clip on/magnetic... why not use it to see if you really want to go through the piercing and healing process. I used a clip on before I did my cartlidge, but I hadn't thought about trying to sleep with it and my hair, which is why I removed my piercing and just let it heal.
    Have:
    Lobes (gunned at a very young age)
    Forgotten gunned cart. piercing I retired after about a month...couldn't stand catching my
    hair in it anymore
    VCH
    Nipples-migrating...retired 1/11
    Wanting/Planning:
    Nipples back, ASAP. stupid rejection

    From around age 12 to when I got it done for real (first one at age 17), I used to wear a clip-on ring in my conch almost continuously. I really wanted it bad, but there was no way that my family would let me get it done at 12 years old. It's definitely a better solution for kids than "experimenting" with real piercings.
    Current: 11 earrings, 12ga navel
    Goals: more holes

    The only time I dont like it is if people lie and pretend theyre real. but otherwise, whats the problem? maybe they want to try out a new look without spending the money, pain and commitment *shrug*

    ive done it a couple times, but when people start acting like they are real, it get annoying.
    Snakebites have gotten so over used and popular i see people every day with them at school.
    and when the teachers ask the kids to take them off, the kids freak out like theyre real or somthing.

    I can't see how it annoys people, I mean people dye their hair, apply fake tan, have false nails, false eyelashes, pad out bras, wear slimming underwear...how is it any different?

    I don't mind it. Some people get pierced for fashion, some for pain, some to express themselves, some for "bragging rights" (which relates to the pain I guess).

    If the fake jewelry looks good, and someone wants to sport it...good for them! I'm happy with my actual piercings!
