Also, guys opinions on them. Do you think it's gross or a turn off on a girl? General opinions? I'm just curious because when I got one my dad was pissed because he says they're inappropriate. I got it for myself though to increase my self esteem.
My mom got one when she was in her late 40s. It makes it hard to think of them as "skanky." And my friend the college professor, she got one. Not skanky.
As for turn on/off? For me, wouldn't do anything, but they're a way to decorate your body, and I don't see why people shouldn't do that. If you like the way something looks, go for it :)
Your dad sounds like he thinks he owns your body or something, and he needs to remember that you're an adult and can make your own decisions. Don't give it up if you like it. But since he's your father, I can see wearing a shirt that covers it :p The things we do for family harmony.
1. Everyone's opinion will differ 2. Who cares if people think you're skanky you are who you are just be you 3. Most of the people who think a piercing automatically makes you promiscuous probably aren't worth your time 4. People who treat promiscuous people any different from anyone else aren't worth your time 5. I like em
I just think that out of every body piercing out there bellybutton piercings are the most basic ones ever. Not skanky but lame. Skanky would be like a clit piercing or something like that... Which if someone can get something like that piercing they are a total badass lol that shit must hurt!!
I have had mine pierced for a year. They're a nice decorative thing on your belly, but not a bar of metal to base your self-esteem on. I got my belly pierced after I knew I had a really sexy body; the piercing was just icing on the cake.
Good luck with the red, pussy infections though! :)
