It looks like food is stuck on your tongue!

I've seen a red/white one that looks like a pill - very odd.

I would use green jewelry for a piercing, but not a tongue piercing.

I don't like piercings at all, specially tongue piercings. They seem so gratuitous.

@BorgClown: Yes, absolutely. It makes no sense for an attractive woman to take the looks nature gave her and spoil that perfection with bits of metal.

@Lee J Haywood: You know, men get piercings, too.

I consider certain piercings to be very attractive. I love piercings for myself as well, but my body seems to disagree.

I'd find your attractiveness to evaporate if you had obvious facial piercings. Earrings and small, subtle nose studs are okay, but big nose rings and lip piercings both look out of place and don't add anything. Tongue piercings aren't so great either, but at least they're mostly hidden... It's my observation that people with piercings and tattoos tend to attract each other, and those without them attract each other too - there's a separation there.

I don't see the point in piercings, the weirdest are the painful ones, nose and tongue. And the face piercings/rings look awful. I see them only as a sign of non-conformism. But I have seen rare navel piercings that look cute, at least form afar.

@Lee J Haywood: I had a subtle nose stud but it just wouldn't take. It looked great until it got a bump and I had to take it out. I had my tongue pierced and swallowed the jewelry. Now it's just my ears and I guess it will stay that way. Borg, I for one never got a piercing because I was trying to be a non-conformist. How can it be non-conformist when so many people have them? Especially nostril piercings. I can see those soon becoming as common as pierced ears.

@Nevermore: It was non-conformism when it started. But it seems that there's tons of non-conformists already. If it becomes mainstream, we body-mauling conservatives will become the non-conformists.

@Nevermore: So what was your reason? Did you believe that they made you more attractive, and if so to whom? Did you feel that your natural beauty wasn't enough?

@Lee J Haywood: I don't remember why I got my tongue pierced. I got my nostril pierced because I just really like the way they look on women. There was no one in particular I wanted to attract, I just was pleased with the way it looked. Do you feel the same way about attractive women wearing other jewelry? What about make-up?

I only like make-up if it's fairly subtle, but a natural look is better. Make-up can make some sense in special occasions - like high-heels at weddings, or for a musician at a performance, say. Chains and bracelets and so on are okay, but they don't really add much for me. Messing with the face seems like a silly thing to do, though.
