Rings on my Fingers, Bells on my Toes

When I was in my early twenties, I decided I wanted to get my ears pierced. This was something my grandmother had always been adamantly opposed to and so when I mentioned this idea to my mother, I was surprised to learn that she liked pierced ears. Furthermore, she even helped me to pierce my ears myself.

Fast forward several decades and today, it is very common to see both men and women sporting all types of body jewelry - pretty much the sky being the limit there now.

When my son came home on leave from his tour of duty in Germany, I was somewhat shocked to learn he had his nipple pierced. Later, when he was in a relationship with a very nice young lady but who his Dad disliked immensely, his Dad told him he should have had his nose pierced and the ring put in there.

Whether I like this fashion or not, my feeling is that if you're gonna have it, get the best product you can buy then.

I actually think that nipple piercing is quite sexy (on certain physiques of course)....however, I don't like the eyebrow, lip and tongue piercings. They gross me out. As for me....I just have my ears pierced and actually let the 'extra' holes I had put in years ago heal up...and only have the standard two holes in my head (giggle).

Erk. I see sensitive body parts with metal stuck through them and all I can do is squirm in my seat. Not sexy in the least, to me.

A lot of the crowd I hang out with are tattooed and pierced, in many different areas.

I used to have my left ear pierced, and I have three tattoos.

I wanted to have my eyebrow pierced but the wife said no. She really didn't say no, but she preferred that I not do it, and we've been married for 21 years so I highly respect her opinion.

A nipple piercing sounds interesting. Not sure I would do it myself. I have asked a few of my friends that have their nipples pierced, and they all told me that it is a sexual thing.

Go figure! I'm not against any of it. It's your body, do with it as you wish.

Peace!
