I'm 19 and feel as though intelligent girls who are into peircings are looked down upon. Some part of me says I shouldn't give a care but I'd like to know if piercings affect your opinion of a girl (in terms of approaching them ie in a club or library)?
while i'd never get piercings or tattoos anywhere near my face (or that can't be concealed), whether or not someone else has them doesn't affect me or influence my opinion of that person. if you can hold your own in an intelligent conversation, i'll happily talk to you.
(i have 4 piercings in my left ear, 3 on the right, and a tattoo on my left shoulder... all of which i got in my mid-20s, and all of which are super-easy to cover up, should i end up working in a stuffy, conservative office lol.)
It doesn't affect my opinion of her, but I am on the same boat as a lot of people: I feel like there are some people who essentially dock points off of their physical appearance with certain piercings, or a blatant over abundance. I don't feel like if affects their intellect by any means.
I think they can look sexy on certain girls. Depends on their location though. Some piercings are just inconvenient, dangerous or look trashy. But that last bit is personal taste. I read the interesting idea somewhere that if you look very personal/unique, more people are going to hate you AND more people are going to love you; they'll just have stronger opinions about you in general, while if you look very plain, their opinions will be more plain as well. So just rock your piercings if you like them and surround yourself with like-minded people instead of worrying about the hate.
Could be bullcrap but it sounds partially logical.
I'm a Math teacher who got my nose pierced not for fashion but it is part of my culture. So much to explain why but it just our tradition. Am I dumb? If they refuse to compromise on this matter, they can get lost. You shouldn't ask the introvert guys on here whether they would date you or no. I doubt they have been in any relationships though. I don't have problem getting guys at all. You do what you want.
I have piercings and I can honestly say that I didn't notice any difference on how people view or treat me, might depend on the kind and amount of piercings, too, but I certainly never had problems getting along with people or with people approaching me in general.
