i think when people have facial piercings it distracts from them. the first thing I look at when someone has their nose pierced is in fact the piercing so if you are trying to keep people from looking at "you" then yes I suppose theyre good. I just think it takes away from someones natural beauty in that sense.
On guys, I think it looks gay. No offense to gay people, I literally mean that if I see a guy with one I'll wonder if he's gay.
I like them. I have one..used to have a stud but changed it to a ring because I have such an innocent face, and it kind of...almost doesn't "go with" my face, and I like the contrast and imbalance...lol. Plus..the ring doesn't get caught on my blanket in the middle of the night and tug on my nose haha
