I recently got my septum pierced and noticed a huge change in how people treat me and perceive me.
For example I was on the tube (london subway) yesterday and a dog was looking at me, so I gave him my hand to smell and tried to pet it. The owner smiled at first, then as she looked up from my hand to my face, her expression changed. She seemed disturbed that I would want to touch her dog. This has never happened to me before.
Some people smile and wink, people with piercings give me an approving look. There's more attention and stares for sure, and not always in a good way. It's quite strange. To me it's just a piece of jewellery that looks cute and stylish.
What is your opinion on them?

Nothing wrong with em per se, i think they add a nice little edge. Here is the thing though, they work if you have sharp features, especially nose and jawline. On softer rounder faces they... just they don't work as well (imo).
That being said, it's my opinion and the tube is full of all kinds of people, some of whom will take offense to such things. Don't worry about it.2
