I'm genuinely interested : why do people get piercings? Do you find it beautiful?

@Yalow,
I think it establishes their self esteem.

@Brandon9000,
I was being sarcastic. Got a good emoticon for that?

@roger,
This is my favorite sign for tattoos (turns out I don't have a sign, but I wish I had invested in skin repair clinics because at some time in the future, removing tattoos will be a big money maker)

@Yalow,
This is the wrong audience gor that sort of question. Most of A2K are retired, they don't have piercings.

Try a more youth oriented platform.

@Yalow,
I suppose it varies from person to person. It might be to conform, to rebell, to express individually or sexuality. Piercing shows up in many cultures.

People have been decorating and disfiguring their bodies for centuries. I haven't read anything that attempts to explain it. Possibly expressions of group identity in many cases, rebellion in others.

My daughter once told me she wanted to get her belly button pierced .... Because it was just so plain.

She never got that piercing but she did pierce her ears and more recently her nose.

@Linkat,
A lot of people blame the 14 president for the current fad, but strangely enough Franklin Pierce didn't have any piercings at all but he did have a massive tattoo of Getty's Burg address on his back.

I have seen a few articles purporting to explain it. I don't really remember the explanations, but such articles are out there.

But I wish I had answers from the people themselves, not theories.
