Sorry if this is the wrong forum
But sadly i see that nose piercings are coming back into fashion, at least here in Europe i see many students starting to wear them.. which means it will spread and by the summer be in fashion.

Seriously im not being gross but they look like, erm the person hasnt wiped their nose.
They are just the most gross ugly looking things imaginable.

I`m not a fan of piercings myself, but this one is just really gross looking piercing.

This is why i think humans are sheeple.
Like that stupid side hair shave thing rhianna? did ...
Soon as she did it, all the celebs started doing it... its this mentality of " i must fit in"

Another thing that really pisses me off is that quiff thing from the last year and a half which is still super popular.
Love quiffs, especially 50s/60s quiffs but this is different, its like the front is super gelled with enough oil to start a large car, and the sides shaved?!! i mean what the heck?!!!!!! that isnt 50s, thats just ridiculous.

These fashions and trends make me just realise how generic and unspecial humans are, they are like programmed sheeple, all follow the other.

Back on point, what do you think?

The nose piercing conspiracy. This one is a doozy. The world will end as we know it!

The same could be said of tattoos. I never wanted a tattoo ever. However it is rather remarkable that what was once the reserve of a select, rebellious few in western society is now almost the norm. I, by NOT having a tattoo, am in fact now the rebel! Yay me!

On topic, I think nose rings look ugly.

Well, the side shave thing isn't new. It's been around since the 80's, it has just made a resurgence the last few years
It's amusing, my girlfriend has her nose pierced (has for 14 years), and the side shaved hair. We're adults though.

Teens follow trends, that hasn't changed in.. ever. They're also in highschool, so fitting in is kind of how you live through highschool. Most people get rid of their piercings as they get older. I still have my tongue pierced but whatever.

I've seen lots of tiny little sparkly gem studs on girls that don't look too bad. The ones that go into the side of the nose.
I don't like the rings that go in noses though.
I used to have my tongue pierced, I took it out after getting a sharp pain in that spot, a couple of years later.

A very tiny diamond piercing on the side can be cute. But anything actually coming out of your nostrils is just plain gross.

I agree, a lot of people follow ridiculous fads even when they look bad! The majority of celebrities or popular band members do the ridiculous for the shock value and attention. It's a marketing ploy, to set themselves apart.

I still don't find tattooing in the least bit attractive. The last thing I would want to see is my daughter walking down the isle in a beautiful wedding dress with tattoos across her chest and arms. From a distance, arms that are filled with tattoos look like someone sprayed graffiti on them. It just looks dirty to me. They're just so permanent, I just don't get the attraction.
I can't imagine someone who gets a tattoo at the age of 21 will want the same tattoo on their body at the age of 40. Our likes and dislikes change as we get older.

Nose piercings remind me of bulls that have rings through their noses. How does someone blow their nose with those nose piercings? Kind of disgusting if you ask me.

The sagging pants thing, has to be the most ridiculous fad I've ever seen. It's so stupid, the guys can't even walk right because of it. The police love it because Thugs who are caught committing a crime, can't run fast enough because their pants start slipping down to their knees
. They might as well join the circus.

How about the elongated ear inserts? Wow, now that's really attractive. The only positive thing I see with that is they serve as great pencil and pen holders.

I guess what it comes down to, is beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Personally not a huge fan of nose piercings but respect ancient to more modern cultural standpoints of it. If they are done properly(not by mall store employees with a damn "piercing gun") and in a correct fashion(honoring culturally) it's all the better. The trendy, everyone is doing it so will I garbage or I'm an aging soccer mom and I want to look hip, really does cheapen it.

I'm not a fan of peircing either. I can't figure out why people started to do that again. Most societies gave up that stuff centuries ago.

Agree with you so much about the tattoos
how many times do you see a beautiful model roll up her sleeve to reveal some cheap butterfly tattoo and instantly any sense of class just goes out of the window

Yeah. This whole "latest fashion" thing is an interesting topic and the piercing and tattooing is a concise display of it. But it is only an example, the whole issue runs deep. Our trends and fashions, our fads and all things that become popular are all examples of how much of our human "mentality" is group oriented. The 'me' that I think I am is beyond a doubt and to a high degree a collection of impulses gathered together from my surroundings. I am somewhere within the range of possibilities presented to me by my environment.

These trends, these fashions fads though present short term examples of this. It is the ones that really catch on, the ones that have little competition from the next fad that become our real problem. The ones that over generations become revered as tradition and then go unquestioned by all that are the worst. For instance, when does a cult become a religion.
Or when does a bunch of boys playing with a stick and a ball in a vacant field become a national pastime garnering billions of dollars a year.

Worse yet, when does a simple and sketchy understanding of reality such as espoused by people like Aristotle become the bed rock of civilization?

Interesting. If that's you in the picture, you seem very young.
I only point this out, because I'm not. (young) LOL

I think the nose piercings can be very cute. It depends on the person. A friends daughter has it, and it really fits her. She doesn't wear anything big or gaudy.

I love tattoo's as well. I have them. They are all in places that can be covered easily, and they all mean something to me.

I do think people should wait until they are "older" to get them. Piercings can be removed, so really, no big deal. Tattoo's, Big Painful Deal to remove.

Can't stand any facial piercings personally. They just scream "I'm not naturally pretty enough, but look at me". Even sadder are those good looking people who still spoil their looks.

Perhaps OK in somewhere like India but sad in the western world imo.

How funny about the tats.

I laugh at 20 somethings who get a tattoo on their neck or hands. They'll regret it when they try to get a real job.

Nose rings are kinda gross but I think the belly button ring is super sexy.

Wow .. I have a lovely septum ring that I've gotten many compliments on and have had for many years, a long time ago I used to have a side shave and I've got very long hair, and I also have a tattoo sleeve. You seem to think these are all new fads, these are things that have been done by certain subcultures for decades.

So its nice to know I'm so disgusting to you just based on my outward appearance. I think its adorable that, if that's you in your avatar photo, you look like you're going for the emo look which WAS a big trend here in the states and Mexico ( and was generally regarded as silly ), yet you're making fun of the way other people look.

Either way, you're entitled to your opinion, I just think it sucks. And I know most people at this site will probably agree with you, but I still think it sucks. Have a good one.

Nose rings or piercings right under the nostrils, are pretty gross. But, I'm cool with tasteful little nose piercing balls, etc...just not right under the nostrils.

My second wife got a belly button piercing shortly after we met. It got infected.

About 5 years later, she went out and got it pierced again. I asked her if she was a moron.
That piercing got infected too.
Not that I am against piercings, I have three piercings. I just wanted to reiterate that my ex is a moron.
On topic.... I don't like nose piercings.

I could not be dealing with having any piercings-I am bad enough when I get a chipped tooth that scrapes my tongue.
It prevents me from enjoying the day.
To have something stuck through your nose must be similar,you must notice it all the time.

Never mind when you get a cold-that must be awful painful and leaky if your sinuses swell up.

But hey,there are far more disturbing bodymods than the humble piercing,so I guess its each to their own.

Tattooed eyeballs...by the gods.
Who comes up with this horror?

It takes guts to do what no one else is doing. So I can respect someone who has the confidence and sense of style to do something new and different and own it enough that people think it fits.

Then you have the herd that thunders to follow.

That pattern isn't usually too bad because most things we do in the name of being trendy can be easily reversed - even nose piercings can grow back. But the two I don't like are tats and ear plugs. Those are more or less a one-way street forever trend.

As for tats, I'm not against them if they're you, but if you're doing it just to look trendy, I suggest henna. And as for a wedding, I think those henna hand designs are very pretty.
