What are your opinions on ear piercings?

Asked by TheOnlyException (2172 points ) April 10th, 2010

What do you think of a person (girl) with more than just a lobe piercing in each ear.
I.e. extra ear piercings such as cartilage, rook, or just more lobe piercings?
Do you like them? Dislike them? Or are you indifferent?
Do they make a girl/guy more or less attractive to you, or does it not affect that.

Do you yourself have any ear piercings?

I don’t have any ear piercings, and I don’t care for them.

Mostly indifferent, I don’t particularly like or dislike it.

How can I put this… it’s not typically going to make someone I don’t find attractive more so, but it can make someone I find attractive less so, though not to a great degree. I have seen some very, very, cool stylized ear piercings that definitely complimented the people with them and caught my attention, but only very rarely.

I don’t have any piercings, ear or otherwise, I was just never really interested.

I had my pierced when I ws 12.When I was 16,I thought I needed second piercing so I did it myself.Ow.
I let them close up after awhile and now just have the single piecing.I think it looks better that way.I don’t like to wear alot of jewelry at once.

I like them. Just not for young kids. Teens are able to start making choices, and ear piercings are on the low scale of rebellion.

My personal choice, as a female, is to wear clip-ons. I have some remnants of the “don’t let the chi out” philosophy left.

I have two piercings in each lobe, a tragus/rook and antihelix in my right ear, and a conch piercing in my left.

I’m not a huge fan of the barbell that goes across the top part of the ear though.

@poofandmook the industrial piercing you mean
yeah no those look nasty X_x i can barely cope taking a shirt off with 2 cartilage piercings, imagine getting caught on something that goes through the whole top of the ear, its like giving it a handle to.. shudder

I am indifferent, except for when I see a cartilage piercing and think how painful it must have been.

i like them. a 3 month old baby does not want its ears pierced. aside from that i love the way they look. i used to have 5 in each ear. i let them clothes because i’m lazy and…actually i don’t remember the full reason. but i really like the way they look. now i just have one hole in each but they’re gauges and for some reason i think i look a lot better with earrings in and i feel the same about others too.

Kraigmo's avatar

I don’t like ‘em. I’ve never thought they added to anyone’s attractiveness. I find flesh and simple clothing attractive. Shiny things don’t do it for me. But I’m speaking in idealisms; I’d never turn any woman away over this

deni's avatar

@Kraigmo good point. i think large obnoxious hoops and huge dangly earrings are ugly too.

littlekori's avatar

i love ear piercings, well any piercings actually.
i love them on women and men. i love gauges on guys, but probably nothing more.
and yes, i have my ears gauged and my second holes pierced. i also have my catiledge pierced. i also have both sides of my nose pierced and my monroe(:
