    Pulling it off, is the biggest turn on! Only some select people look good with piercings. I don't like a lot of piercings, but can take a few well placed one that speak to the owner's character.

    Personally, I don't get it. That's just me though. You may wnat to consider your job/career and how it would be impacted. also, your social circle may become limited.

    I don't' think school will be an issue.

    It really depends on where you work and what you do for piercings. If you have a stretch of time where you aren't working, maybe over the summer you could get it, give the spot time to heal so you can take it out easily when you do have that white collar job icon_razz.gif

    I've had several facial piercings, some I've pierced myself, and from my experience getting one is a personal preference which might seem like such an obvious statement but asking people about how they feel about something you're going to have on yourself is pointless.
    The people that might judge you will be strangers. It's most likely their ignorance and assumptions that you might come across. The people that 'know' you won't care. By 'knowing' I mean people that you have close relationships to. Parents however might have another opinion to your choices.

    Your workplace will be affected to some degree because of appearance or occupational hazard. You can get clear jewelery called retainers that make the piercing not so obvious. With a lip piercing your gum can recede but if you have a great piercer, appropriate sized jewelery and good health and hygiene practices it won't happen.
    With my own lip piercings I replaced the flat back barbell jewelery with a ring because the back of the barbell was 'sinking' into my lip (the pressure of the bar was making my lip rest over the backing). The reason for that was the back of the barbell was too small in diameter and the bar was too short. Problem fixed.

    I've never had anyone treat me any different because of my piercings. I might get a rare 'doesn't that hurt?' comment once every few years but people get over it quick, it's so common these days I think a lot of the older prejudice doesn't make sense.

    FWIW, I don't think you should get one because you have doubts.

    Not a fan, but that could be my age showing.
    Piercings send a message - and that's interpreted differently by who sees them, so do tattoos, hair styles, clothes. Like it or not it says something about who we are, so when addressing personal style choices you have to be aware that some things come across in a different ways to different people. You are choosing to make a statement - but you have to define what that statement is.
    I'd be worried it would get "snagged" on something - good way to ruin your cashmere sweaters.

    I don't get the whole facial piercing thing. It's just not attractive to me, but to each his own.

    ChangeofName saidyou want your labret pierced?

    If I was gonna get a piercing that would be it, I just have a problem with it rubbing against my teeth.


    If you ever get facial trauma, that, lips, and tongue have a probability of actually chipping your teeth. Tread carefully, especially if you have shallow gums.

    I have a facial piercing (see my photos), I have never had any problem with it... I study chemistry so there are no rules how to look at school icon_smile.gif

    One day, an old lady told me I looked really good with that piercing icon_smile.gif

    They don't do anything for me but to each his or her own. When I see them, I just think about the pain of getting it or if it were to rip out if the person got punched, which is what happened at a bar during New Years a few years ago.

    Doesn't get any plus point with me if someone has them. More than 1 or 2 then it starts to be a turn off.

    At least the piercings can be easily reversed, unlike tattoos.

    Not a fan of any piercings or tatts. No matter how hot the guy is it's an immediate turn off for me.

    I can appreciate the artistry but in terms of finding it attractive on men, big no.

    It's your body though, do what the fuck you want.
