    Default Symmetry with piercings

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone else here like symmetry when it comes to getting piercings?

    Am I the only one?

    I'm a bit OCD with it to be honest.
    I Have:
    Stretched Lobes (18mm)
    Tragus x2 (1.2mm)
    Double Nostrils (1.2mm)
    Septum (1.2mm)
    Philtrum (1.2mm)
    Double Lip "Snakebites" (1.2mm)
    Tongue (1.6mm)
    Both Nipples (1.6 mm)
    Frenum (1.6mm)
    Tattoos (x4)

    I Want:
    Smiley
    Forward Helix
    Tattoos!

    I'm not really concerned with symmetry in piercings, but I have always liked asymmetrical things. I just really want everything to look good together, so I plan all my piercings. (:

    I think people would be 50/50. I have OCD so it will bother me if I didn't have the same piercings on both sides... too bad my ears are symmetrical... it bothers me....
    Piercings: Same on both ears - 8g 1st lobes, 12g 2nd lobes, 14g conches, 16g rooks, 16g anti-tragus
    16g septum
    Future plans: 14g septum

    I go for asymmetrical on purpose. If I have something in one ear I wouldn't get it in the other.

    L & R 4mm lobe | L & R 2nd & 3rd lobe | L double helix | L inner conch | L rook | R helix | R forward helix | R tragus (re-pierced) | R outer conch

    Yeah I'm mad for it on my ears, have to be symmetrical. Same piercings each ear, same placement (exact enough)

    I also couldn't not get just one nipple pierced, it had to be both.
    I have.......
    Tongue, Nostril, Horizontal Nipples,
    In each ear......Daith, Lobe, Tragus, Anti tragus, Rook
    Retired Piercing: Labret

    Feel free to add me on failbook.

    I'm not fussed about symmetrical ear piercings. You can only see one at a time
    But all my facial/body piercings MUST be symmetrical. It'd drive me mad otherwise.
    I think you'll find a lot of people who are crazy on symmetry, more than assymmetric anyways.
    Complete with a green straightjacket with circuit boards stuck all over!



    Current: 1" lobes, 4g conches, septum, 6g helix, daithy- helix, helix industrial, bridge, 8g both nostrils, one lonely nipple and both cheeks, vert labret an a sternum micro. Forearm branding, calf cutting and a split tongue.
    Retired: Nape, neck and chest micros, nipple, 4g tongue, eyebrow, snakebites. Several lobes, labrets and nostrils. Rook ):
    Next up: moar leg!

    And no tattoos D:

    My ears aren't symmetrical.

    But my face ​must be!

    You can't rollerskate in a buffalo herd.

    1/2" lobes, 15 other holes, 2 hours of tattoo work.

    This is just me personally, but I hate symmetrical ear piercings, aside from lobes I like the other piercings to be different. Facial I quite like symmetry, but i'm not so fussed about it as some people, I used to have very assymetric piercings and now I lean towards symmetry a bit more but nothings definite!
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    Meh, to be honest the only thing symmetrical about my ears are my lobes. I really don't want symmetric ears because I have piercings on my list that just wouldn't fit together. I kinda want my ears to have the same amount of piercings though, which isn't the case right now (this is most distressing haha!)My ears are kinda symmetrical in a way because at the top I have a sort of odd in your face outer cartilage piercing and then inner ones except my left ear has one more on it. I dunno if I would want my face symmetrical because I was a madonna maybe :\ I insist on a symmetrical layout for downstairs though tehe! Despite the fact I haven't had any done... Yet.
