HONESTLY: Does anyone think that "plugs" (tribal style wide-guage earings) make a person look better?

It is so far beyond my understanding, that I assume it’s just a pop culture mass hysteria type of thing.

Here’s one image i found quickly using Google

Does anyone really think those plugs are attractive?

So many of my customers and acquaintances have them, it’s very popular right now. But isn’t this just one of those things that people do because their friends do it, or they’re bored? Deep down inside, do some people really think those things look good on a natural aesthetic level? Be as detailed, historic, or symbolic as you need to be in order to help me understand. I realize “everyone’s different” but i also realize that a lot of people jump on bandwagons when it comes to fashion or appearance, rather than using their own inner thoughts. If anyone finds such earrings attractive, or hot, on others, please explain why as best you can.

I have a suspicion though, that the American/European attraction to such earrings are no different than the Mexican attraction to these shoes. But at least the Mexicans aren’t destroying their feet with their fad.
