Most people I know get them because they make them feel better about themselves. Alternatively some have really deep meanings (left side nose piercings are savres in Indian culture, adopted by hippies and now everyone has one lol, and lip rings were used in several African tribes)
The answer was meant to cover white women, not the females of foreign decadent cultures and customs. Some African tribes put large wooden disks in their lips; some excise the vagina; and some scar their faces with cuts infused with charcoal. So, if disfiguring themselves makes some of our girls "feel better about themselves" then they should take up some of the African "beauty treatments" and feel really terrific !
