Does seeing facial piercings make you feel uncomfortable?

When I see them as part of a cultural custom they don't bother me. I saw what at first glance was a raised mole to the side and just below a woman's lip the other day, and my first thought was gosh she should have a plastic surgeon take care of that, only to realize that it was a small round piece of jewelry that she'd put there.

  • Not at all. Go them for having the guts to get the needle poked through their face and walk around being judged.

    What people wear, including jewelry and clothes don't bother me.

  • It doesn't make feel uncomfortable, but it grosses me out a bit. I don't know why, but I kind of look at is as dirty. Not sure why.

  • lol. That's hilarious!

    To answer your question, no it doesn't bother me at all. As a matter of fact, I've had my nose pierced before. I took it out for career purposes, but have thought of having it done again. I think it's cute! But I can see where you're coming from. I use to worry people would think it was a giant pimple until they got a good look at it. lol.

  • It doesn't bother me unless it gets extreme. Cheek piercings, etc. If it's extreme then I feel like I can't relate to the person. But if it's a normal piercing (eyebrow, lip, libre, etc) then it doesn't bother me at all.

  • They don't bother me at all. I actually have my eyebrow pierced twice in my right eyebrow.

  • Don't bother me at all! I have my nose pierced and used to have my labret as well. I want to get my eyebrow redone, but no labret--it killed my gums.

  • I don't mind it. I don't know anyone with a piercing.

  • Not at all. I've taken most of mine out but I used to have quite a few.
