I don’t even pierce my ears.

Someone asked me in a comment yesterday what my views are about piercings and tattoos. Well, Zabby, I’ll start with this: I am extremely pain intolerant, so I don’t have either. I don’t even pierce my ears, or I haven’t yet; I’m not sure what I’ll do in the future, but I don’t think they look bad on other people.

I think if an alien came to our planet and discovered piercings, they would think we were absolutely barbaric. I mean, who would stick something painfully through their skin for decoration? Who would want to beautify their self to such an extent they would mutilate themselves for the chance to wear extra jewelry? On the other hand, jewelry! I have no problem with other people getting piercings, but it just seems kind of strange to me when I think about it with some objectivity. Strange isn’t bad- I just don’t think it’s worth any pain whatsoever if it’s not necessary.

Then again, a tiny nose stud might look kind of cute someday… not today. Might. If I can handle seeing a needle go through my face.

As for tattoos- same deal, I suppose. They can look fine, even really cool on some people, but I don’t think I want any. It just seems kind of pointless for me, and it will be with me forever.

The only real objection I have to piercings and/or tattoos is face tattoos. In my opinion, there’s nothing that says “don’t hire me” like a skull or a dragon on your forehead.

Sorry that I don’t have much to say about this, but in conclusion, I don’t want anything like that: at least for now. I don’t mind it on other people.

Do you have any piercings or tattoos?

  1. I don’t have any piercings.. YET.
    I plan to get my ears pierced sometime in late August or early September.
    And I wouldn’t mind getting a belly button piercing either, or a small tattoo.
    They don’t seem THAT bad to me, as long as you don’t go overboard and get tattoos all over you arms and legs, and piercings in your lip, cheek, and even your arm. That’s just plain WEIRD.

  2. I’d only have my ears pierced since.. 3/44 year. And I’ll turn 14 in 6 days. It didn’t hurt or something (ok. I’m really pain tolerant) but I don’t wear earrings so often because I always lose them in my kind-of huge jewellery box, lol. Your alien-view is genius, by the way. Funny and realistic I guess.

    I love your blog. I feel like I’m not alone anymore and not the only thirteen year old blogger. Yay! Maybe we can check out eachothers blogs more often and things, and I’m not saying that because I want more viewers but just because I think it’s awesome to have some peers of the same age.
