    Actually, same here- I know of a lot more boys with them than girls so if anything, I'd view them as a more "manly" piercing.
    I mean, not that they are, but just if I wasn't really thinking too hard about it, thats just what my brain would associate them with.
    Now:
    left ear: lobes x2, tragus, helix, rook
    right ear: lobes x2, upper helix kinda thing
    left nostril, navel, septummmm!

    Later:
    right forward helix or tragus, conch, maybe another lobe
    another helix on left ear
    tongue

    Tattoos:

    I know of more girls than guys that have one but I think they're one of the most unisex piercings you can get.
    ~Gabby~

    Current - lobes, forward helix, outer conch, rook, surface tragus, tongue, nose, navel, and wrist dermal
    Want - anti tragus and conch
    Retired - snakebites, tragus, helix and bottom navel

    i agree. even the name (industrial/scaffold) has a much more masculine connotation. i picture construction workers eating lunch on bare steel beams on a skyscraper build or something...
    Piercings: 9/16" & 6g lobes | 8g septum | some others
    Other: 1 cutting | some tattoos

    Exactly

    But I still think they are one of the most unisex piercings, like Gabby said.
    Now:
    left ear: lobes x2, tragus, helix, rook
    right ear: lobes x2, upper helix kinda thing
    left nostril, navel, septummmm!

    Later:

    I think a scaffold counts as two because it goes through two lots of skin, just like an industrial. I think that goes through twice too. Hard to tell, as it's vertical, and I've only seen front pictures of it and not from behind.
    ------
    Current: 6xpinna (2mm L&R/2x1.2mm L 2x1.6mm R), 2xauricle (1.6/2mm R), 3rd lobes (2mm), nostril (2mm R), navel (1.6mm), inv. navel (1.6mm), tongue (1.6mm), eyebrow (1.2mm R), 1st lobes (10mm), tragus (1.2mm L), septum (3.5mm).


    Future: Eyebrow (L), 1st lobes (1/2"), scaffold (L), nape, nips, nostril (L), outer conch punch (6/8mm), VCH.


    Retired: Navel (1.6mm L/R) 8/1/14&2012, Misplaced 2nd lobe (1.2mm R) 10/3/13, 2nd lobes (1.6mm L&R) 11/9/13.


    Tattoos: 4.
