    the way the jewelry looks on the body is the best part.

    I just have my ears pierced because it's a typical pretty bit of jewelry.
    My belly button is more of symbolism for crazy youth seeing as I did it myself with my best friend. I also think they're very pretty and it does make me feel better about my less-than-perfect body.
    As for my nose, I've always thought nose (nostril) piercings were so beautiful.

    Some of the reasons I have piercings

    - They look awesome
    - It's an excuse to wear more sparkles in/on unconventional areas
    - some signify a period of rebellion in my teens
    - others signify a period a self discovery and acceptance entering/in adulthood
    - I enjoy the build up and anticipation of getting a new piercing
    - I like getting pierced, I enjoy the adrenaline and the moment
    - not going to lie, sometimes I like a little bit of attention and find some piercings, ones that can be seen, are conversation starters

    Someone mentioned piercing as a way of dealing with stress/nerves and I never thought of it like that before.... now that I have I think there's truth in that. I've gone through that in the past and I'm currently going through that right now as I'm researching my next piercing.

    I have piercings for the same reason anyone else wears jewellery! They are a form of accessory or decoration for my body.

    hm, not sure if i've already posted in this, seems like something i would've.. probably not though, i've not been on here for a while!

    my reasons;

    *to make myself look better, just like wearing different clothes, changing hair colours and styles, it enhances my image
    *because i can, i like the fact that i can just go and get whatever i want, whenever i want because i want it (not 18+ piercings atm, obviously, but you get the jist )
    *addictive. i originally would have wanted like, say 7 at the most, but as time goes by i see more and more i want and just get them!
    poh of the undead~

    face: septum, cheeks
    oral: smiley, tongue web, venoms
    right ear: horizontal industrial, 16mm stretched lobe
    left ear: 2mm lobe
    retired: spiderbites (don't look right with cheeks) and my 2 collarbone dermals

    I have piercings because I absolutely love them. I find them creative and fun. I don't have many now, but once I can, I plan on getting many more!

    I guess I liked feeling like I was taking control of my body? That, and I think cartilage piercings are pretty . And unlike a tattoo you can always take out your piercings, so I thought why not.

    Most of my piercings were done while I was still in high school. So, I guess having piercings other than my lobes was my way to rebel against my school's "1 set of lobes only" rule, which I still reckon is a load of horse shit! They have always been a good conversation starter, I love sharing my experiences and recommending the place I religiously get pierced at. The biggest thing would have to be that I got pierced to try and defeat my fear of needles. I can sit still and get pierced without freaking out, however, I still freak whenever I need blood taken from me by a doctor or need a shot.
    Current Piercings: 3x lobes (each ear), 2x helix (left ear), tragus (right ear), rook (right ear), tongue, navel.
    Retired Piercings: Nose, industrial.
    Wishlist: Industrial, Spider Bites, Nose.
    Tattoos: ​None yet.
