i think piercings look bad, especially on females. (earrings are ok though) everyone outgrows them at some point.

tattoos i like. they can be an expressive art form. they can look cheap if overdone or done sloppily. i only have them where they can't be seen over clothing because unfortunately, people are more apt to respond negatively to someone with tattoos. i get them because i like them, not to show them off; and i think thats the reason behind why they often look trashy on people.

What cannot be considered "an exressive art form"? That doesn't actually legitimize the action. If people want to damage and deface their own skin with this "art" then I
say go right ahead. They will also have to deal with the prejudgments of having a jaded personality, being emo or goth.

No, it doesn't legitimize it to someone who doesn't like it, but its not your body to decide. The same thing could be said about makeup or hair removals but those are accepted as normal, therefore no one cares.

And actually, no, i have tattoos and I don't get judged on them, because no one can see them unless i choose to show it to them.

There is nothing wrong with any of it. They are all valid forms of expression, and anyone who would judge someone based on that is a wanker in my opinion.

I wouldn't say they make a woman look more ladylike.. I also wouldn't say that it makes them look more cheap..

What it does is, it makes them look more like the biker girls who frequent some of the places I've played at.

Actually, that isn't true unless you have a lot of tattoos, and piercings in odd places.. I'm just rambling.

If I see a girl with a tattoo that I've seen on multiple people before, It is a big turn off for me. I love unique or at least rare tattoos.

Piercings, I have no opinion. Tongue piercings can be pretty nice, if you know what I mean.

The Rule of Jones states that if your body modifications prevent you from giving a blowjob without severely lacerating one's member, you are overdoing it.

It depends, both on the modifications and the woman. Those beauties that grace the cover of tattoo magazines on one hand, and the typical 'lady' you are likely to bump into in southend-on-sea on the other.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Earrings (no more than two per ear, one lobe, one cartilage) and small nose studs (but only on women with sharper noses) can be extremely good looking

small tats on the arms or body can be hot, but I hate a girl with too much ink.

I find nipple rings, whatever those chest stud piercings are called, and large red tattoos HIGHLY disturbing.

I think only attractive, thin, feminine women can pull off tattoos and make them look hot (and they can't over-do it either). Of course this is completely subjective and I'm kind of disappointed in myself for that standard, but hey I'm a product of my culture ;)

I hate nipple rings. I don't like most piercings, but again some can be sexy. My friend has her back pierced (in the tramp stamp area). I wanted to get the back my neck pierced in the shoulder blade area (I'll look for a pic if you dunno what I'm talking about). Interesting ones like that can be kinda cool. I've had my lip and tongue pierced in the past. The lip ring is a phase (though I think it looked good) and hey the tongue ring kind of served a practical purpose :P I think nose rings on most people look stupid; it looks like a huge blackhead. Anything on the ears is generally okay.

Here's the nape piercing I was talking about, though I'd probably get it a little lower if I got it at all (http://3.bp.blogspot.com...). INB4 "It's a pointless piercing." All piercings are pretty pointless, unless you're doing something like this (http://0.tqn.com...) which I actually think is pretty cool. Again our perspective is going to be decided by culture and what you think is supposed to look hot vs. "trashy" which is so stupid. My friend's back piercing looks like this (http://a4.l3-images.myspacecdn.com...). It's more interesting than a belly button ring, IMO.

I think ear piercings are more feminine. I mean, if your baby girl has no piercings and I say "He's so adorable!" don't get mad at me lol. I think girls with sleeves look cheap and that, in general, large tattoos/colourful tattoos look cheap.

I used to have a stud in my tragus but it fell out in an airport and closed up almost immediately. I'd like to pierce it again but my boyfriend doesn't like it. I have a tattoo on my arm.

I think the nape piercing is awesome. I have this fascination with piercings, even though I only have two in each lobe (and I only wear earrings in the top ones).

Does not altering forever your personal appearance give one cause to question that persons judgement? A persons personality goes through monumental changes every 5 to seven years as one gains more wisdom. What was once the focal point of ones life, becomes irrelevant the next. I generally don't judge people by their tattoos or piercings. I severely question their judgement which by proxy judges them.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

I think all the Unconventional piercings look extremely unattractive.

especially the neck and back ones.

belly buttons and tongue piercings too.. the only one's that look ok in my book are nose ears and eyebrow.. and sometimes not the brow or nose either

tattoos that are neat or interesting and look Well done are pretty cool.

one's that don't look like they took effort/skill on the part of the tattoo artist, and/or forethought, look dumb

Earrings and belly button is about it, but anything else seems rather overboard and simply painful to me.

What cereb said, all depends on the design, the presentation and the indvidual.

My girlfriend has ears, nose, tongue and left nipple pierced, (all studs, no rings) and a small tattoo on her right foot.

I feel like gauges are trashy.
some piercings, like spider- or snake-bites are okay on certain people, but most piercings are kind of unnecessary. Why would you want to have to take all that out before you get on a plane??
I want to have six studs in one ear and five in the other, but other than that, I don't really plan on too much body alteration.

It really depends on the tattoos and piercings. Most of them just look like trash (classic "tramp stamp"), but sometimes they can be nice and artisitic. Though I don't know if they would give off a "lady like" appearance.
