What is the purpose behind piercings? Even ear piercings seem like a strange concept to me (for both men and women mind you.) It's like "Yeah, let's pierce a small hole in our body so that we can put a little hoop through it. I don't really find earrings or body piercings to be cool or interesting, and they certainly don't serve a purpose. It just seems like some weird ass thing you'd only want/have to do if you were a member of a native tribe or something, I don't even know.

Discuss.

Its the same as any fashion statement, there is no purpose theyre purely to personal taste, what is the point in black socks? there is none, they are black purely because some one dyes them black.
Whats the point in different fonts? there is none, it just personalizes things so life isnt so bland.
see where i'm going here?

Its like the same reasons you wear what you wear.

To look cool, to be different, to stand out in a crowd.

I love the way they look. It also says something (usually) about someone's personality. Usually how open minded they are.

Thats just your opinion... Its pretty obvious that the people getting piercings think it looks good. Close-minded recluse or what?

same reason people buy expensive clothes, shoes, hairstyles, lipstick, make-up, contact lenses, tattoos, hell even exotic animals... To stand out, to be unique, turn heads, you know... Damn there's not much thought proccess in it.
You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to, so when they turn their back on you, you get a chance to put the knife in.

I really don't get piercings either. Especially on women. Way to make yourself look ugly.

I'm close minded just because I don't think things dangling from people's ears/pierced through people's skin looks cool? You sound like the closed minded one, just because I have a different opinion doesn't mean you have to **** your panties about it

I wear clothes that are comfortable and warm. I literally only have a couple shirts with designs on them or bands on them or something, and that's because they were given to me by people, and I have them, so I wear them. I don't give a **** about looking cool or being different, I let my personality speak for itself.

I like piercings, to an extent. Some of them go overboard imo, but a single piercing looks good on the right person. I like my lipring, and I think it actually looks good on me.

Normal ear piercings are an excuse to wear more beautiful pieces of jewellery

I've only got my ears pierced once in each lobe, not a huge fan of loads of piercings, but aesthetically I think having normal ear piercings is good. They look pretty, and can complement your face and clothing and hair.

I think the whole getting piercings just to be rebellious or be the most hardcore or whatever is stupid though, half the time they just look ugly and ruin an otherwise pretty face. For example, on my way back from a gig once there was a girl who had a piercing between her upper teeth. It looked like she had something stuck in her teeth, and I couldn't help looking from sheer revulsion. Then she, being so obviously hard and rebellious, made a snake-face at me, sort of baring her teeth and sticking her tongue out.

I wasn't impressed, needless to say. She just looked pathetic, and I showed my supreme lack of caring about how "hXc" she was by making a half-scathing, half-disbelieving face and turning my back on her. There is no excuse for rudeness, especially if you go out of your way to make people look at you in the first place.

And I knew a guy once who had about a zillion facial piercings. Without them he was fairly attractive but with them he looked like he'd sink if he fell in a pond. Just...faintly ridiculous.

I'm not talking about all piercings here, of course. I don't mind if people have a few, but getting loads of them that completely disfigure your face just seems stupid.

I have a sad story that should serve as a warning against overpiercing. My friend wanted me to hook him up with one of my wife's friends. They both looked like they had fallen into my grandfather's tacklebox, what with the eyebrow piercings, nose rings, earings, lip piercings, nipple piercings and, apparently they both even had their nether regions pierced. Well they hit it off at once and started dating regularly and I was not surprised when my friend told me he thought "tonight is the night, man". Well I was happy for him, but I wondereded what had taken so long, it turns out she was old fashioned. No one heard anything from them for the next 19 days. When the police finally knocked in the door to her place what they found was nothing short of horrific. They had apparently become entangled in each others face, nipple and genital piercings and died of starvation. Such an avoidable trgedy, In the end I guess I did "hook" them up.

It makes girls extra hot. My last semi-gf had around 12 piercings and gauges, she did them all herself with a safety pin too lol.
