I had one before too.
Most Helpful Guy
Hey, I have found on girls around my schol that they aren't neccesarrily bad, but it depends on who the ring is on. I know a couple girls who have them, and it really helps their style, cause they are more punk to begin with, but if any of the girls I hang out with (all very "sweet" type girls) it would look stange, like it didn't belong. I would see that as a call for attention, and stray away from dating her.
So my answer to you is, examineyour style. Do you wear more edgy clothing, colored and/or tight jeans, and have attitude to back it? Or are you more of the blonde sporty type, or conservative girl? If you find yourself saying yes to the latter, I would suggest letting it close up, just from a style point of view.
The only reason this would be bad is because of a discontinuity in style. THis can sometimes make people question your personality.
As for liking them, as in it being an active turn-on. I know a few guys who really like peircings, but I think it is more the attitude of the people that get them. You can't go wrong, whatever your style, as long as you rock it.
It IS however a turnoff no matter what style you are, if the ring is too large, or if you play with it.
