    I don't see how that would be weird? Like at all. Why would it be?
    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:

    No reason. Just a thought. My friend started laughing when i told them about me wanting to go get it. Shes a girl. I really can care less though i want that piercing. Only thing holding me back is my job. Were only allowed 2 piercings & thats it.

    Heh, my boyfriend had one until his ripped out. In fact, I know of no girls that have them in real life, only men.

    You can't rollerskate in a buffalo herd.

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

    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.

    left ear: lobes x2, tragus, helix, rook

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

    helix. tongue. rook. 5mm conch punches L & R.
    central labret. industrial. double nostrils.
    philtrum. tattoos.

    Retired: snakebites. nostril x 2. 2nd & 3rd lobes.
    helix. outer conch. nipple.

    Next: tattoos.

    Tumblr. Facebook.
