Meh, peircing and body modification has gotton so commonplace these days. Its like, so that guy has a pair of large gauges in his ears. So what?
When I was a teenager, an acquaintance told me I'd look good with a belly button piercing. So then I became obsessed with them. I begged my mom to let me get one and even made getting one sound all artistic and cool. But no, she didn't relent and I didn't have the guts to go behind her back and do it so I went without.
Then later on I read how terribly infected that they can get. That made me turn my mind around. Well that and the fact that I no longer had a flat teenage belly anymore. Let's face it, a belly button piercing doesn't look good on a gut.
I choose not to get piercings and tattoos. The only place I have ever had piercings is on my earlobes, and only once. I rarely wear jewelery so I don't see fit to get another piercing anywhere. As for tattoos, I am too chicken to get one. My mother got one when her folks passed away and she said it was something she didn't think I could sit through. She described it as a needle piercing the same super sore spot over and over again. Not an appealing idea in my opinion.
I guess I am now the extreme, being that my flesh is bare and ink free, and my body has no metal embedded within its flesh. Funny how that happens.
