Adding onto #70 - I've seen plenty of people with what I would consider ugly piercings, but I just assume that people who get such piercings are aware that most people don't favour them and they're comfortable with that and that's fine. Plenty of people aren't aiming to look 'pretty' by everyone else's standards - hell many people get a kick out of looking 'scary' or 'fierce' so they couldn't care less about any negative appraisals. But the fact that OP thinks that his/her septum piercing is 'tasteful' - by whose standards? His/her own? Piercing fanatics? The general population? Cuz if it's the latter, then that's pretty stupid, and I'm pretty sure that's the main issue people have with OP. Judging from the comments and the voting more people dislike septum piercings than like them, and personally, I would think that's kind of obvious. If you wanna tan yourself to the colour of a carrot, wear crazy facial piercings, or wear your pants below your butt, and you are aware that most people don't consider it attractive but rock it anyway, fine, whatever. But if you do any of those things under the illusion that most people would find you 'awesome' or 'attractive' with good taste - you're a dumbass, and people are going to call you out on it. Simple.
Ok, fair enough that it's the internet but then I think that's just sad. You need to insult people behind a computer? Honestly, I have no issue with people saying what's on their mind. I'm a brutally honest person. What does bug me is when people insult employees at their job. It's like hiding behind the computer, you know the employee can't do anything but smile and nod or they're likely to get fired. As far as OP calling their septum piercing "tasteful", I would imagine they mean it's quite tiny. Compared to a stretched septum, you have to agree that that's tasteful. I also have to say, although I didn't plan my piercings to be "scary" or "intimidating", I've come to realize that's how some people see me. I find this amusing in the fact that once people get to know me, they realize I'm super friendly and actually quite shy.
was opening the comment ls to say the exact same thing! no there is not a 'tasteful'' septum piercing at all. it's the ugliest thing ive seen since I saw the different things tribes do in national geographics. I would never ever think about dating or even a one night stand with a woman who had one or from what she said was even thinking about getting one. they make me ill as well!
My septum is my favourite out of my piercings, I adore mine and have never had a negative comment on it actually. If you don't like them that's fine and dandy, it really doesn't impact my life any and piercings really aren't for everyone; doesn't mean you should be so rude about it though. I have seen some people that I really don't like their septum or various other jewellery, I feel it doesn't suit them, but I'd never comment because it's not my body to decide so it's not my place to comment.
I don't find many piercings attractive, though on some people they ARE. It just works with the person. I especially have a fondness for lip piercings, though. Not sure if I'll get one yet but I find it attractive. It's really not that uncommon anymore. I've met people who still freak over tattoos despite them becoming a lot more accepted, it's rude. Unless someone asks your opinion I don't see why you need to say anything. I don't really like short hair on men, but you don't see me walking around insulting men with short hair. And people would FREAK over someone insulting a woman with short hair or who is bald. Dyed hair is common now as well. All of this is for appearance purposes, they should do what they want and you should keep your mouth shut and be a decent human being unless your opinion is asked.
What I don't get #75 is why people have to say it's not tasteful. If people don't like it, sure say that. But if OP says she's it looks tasteful, who are we to say it doesn't? Just because we find it ugly doesn't mean OP does. Why should we put OP down when we've all said something we have looks good when to others it doesn't. I think OP is fine, but just because it's not to your style or liking doesn't allow people to say that OP's taste isn't good looking to her when she likes it. It's much like someone going to a person who has a sleeve of tattoos and a slayer shirt saying, "Your taste in music and the way you dress isn't what I like." I know that's not a good way to word it but who are we to bash what OP likes?
143 - You're correct, it would be nice if everyone just kept their mouths shut and their opinion to themselves but that's not how society works. I think people with piercings and tattoos need to realize beforehand that they will might get questions, looks or comments. Weather they're negative or positive, you gotta expect it. And if you don't and still go ahead a get one, you'll just find out the hard way.
I love all my piercings. I can understand when old people go on a rant but, if you love who you are and the way you look then it doesn't matter what people think. What ever happen to people liking you for what's on the inside and not on the outside? People are just too judgemental these days.
Some people judge others way too quickly... I mean, just because they don't want to get their septum pierced doesn't mean that they should make you feel bad about your decision.
NGL, they make me feel sick because I imagine getting one and pain makes me feel sick. Putting things through skin (holes or not) makes me feel sick too. However the woman should've just asked for someone else to serve her, rather than knock someone's self esteem.
