Thats a really close minded and ignorant thing to say. Piercings are not about attention seeking or immaturity.l People have been piercing themselves
for literally thousands of years...it is body adornment, decoration. Like you would decorate anything else, except its your body. It is much like
tattoos, where the body becomes the canvas,
I dont particularly think this guy is very attractive with so many though. There ARE some people who do it for the wrong reasons (attention)..but a
few bad seeds in the pack does not make everyone who gets pierced this way. Who am I to judge this man? Perhaps he thinks its artistic...or is
expressing himself in some way...thats what its about! People express themselves through art and other things...why the hell not through body
adornment? It isnt about being 'content' with how you look, body modification (save for plastic surgery) isnt done because people are unhappy about
how they look.
It has nothing to do with intelligence and I would venture to say people who pierce are a lot more artistic in general than people who dont. That is
to say, a person who pierces is very likely to be very artistic. It is simply something some people are interested in. Some people are not, and thats
fine, but dont hate on those who choose it and make baseless assumptions about intelligence, maturity and even mental health. If you really believe
what youre saying, and not just trolling..I really feel sorry for you.
What is it with people who scoff at things like this? where in our journey as a society did it become not ok to do something artistic which we have
been doing for a very, very long time? I dont know..but it really grates on my nerves and just makes you look like a really close minded and ignorant
If piercings make me different, than so be it. I'm not doing it TO be different, but you know what, if it makes me look different GOOD. Thats because
I am different..everyone is different than anyone else, except a lot of people just think theyre 'normal'.
Maude: I should like to change into a sunflower most of all. They're so tall and simple. What flower would you like to be?
Harold: I don't know. One of these, maybe.
Maude: Why do you say that?
Harold: Because they're all alike.
Maude: Oooh, but they're *not*. Look. See, some are smaller, some are fatter, some grow to the left, some to the right, some even have lost some
petals. All *kinds* of observable differences. You see, Harold, I feel that much of the world's sorrow comes from people who are *this*,
[she points to a daisy]
Maude: yet allow themselves be treated as *that*.
[she gestures to a field of daisies]
