Are piercings attractive for men and women to wear, or are they merely annoying distractions from what a person's true appearance is. Nose and lip piercings are attributed a lot to the Gothic realms of society, but it is increasingly common nowadays for all members of society to don a stud somewhere on their body. In fact the more and more we venture into the time of free speech and liberation, people are beginning to run out of places to get piercings. A piercing on the ear lobe can be seen as quite classy but aside from that it is seen as a bit radical and alternative. Can these be seen as attractive?
I personally don't find any women attractive that have piercings in any other places other than on their ear lobe. For many however a tongue piercing can be particularly alluring, especially if the suitor is attractive. There are many women out there who do have a ridiculous amount of piercings, but if used in the correct way then there is definitely a market out there for piercings on women. The punk chick look is in, with the likes of soft rock singer in pink leading the way. Some piercings can promote promiscuity; a view is taken by some that if they are loose enough to mask their face with piercings then they may well be loose enough to sleep around. That is a very vague and inaccurate misconception however, because obviously what a woman has pierced says nothing about her morals and values.
Piercings are somewhat fashionable at the moment however, along with tattoos and the assumption that piercings will only become more common in modern society. This means that if more of us have piercings, then surely more of us are going to be finding people with piercings attractive. So even if there are some people who think piercings are hideous and aren't attractive to girls, we all have to acknowledge the fact that there are many girls who are attractive not only because of the way they look naturally, but the way in which they accessorize their piercings in order to look attractive. It will always divide opinion but and everybody has a different view of what is attractive so who are we to judge anybody for their taste. If they want their nipple pierced or even anywhere more radical, then that is their choice and there is someone out there who is looking just for that.
