    In January I had my nipples pierced and I am rather surprised how it has influenced my personality.

    There is nothing tangible that I am able to pinpoint that has changed in my personality or viewpoints.
    It almost seems that I have become more "hardcore" for the lack of a better word.

    Has anyone else discovered something similar after a piercing, tatoo or body modification?


    Oh...and Hi.

    What do you mean by hardcore?
    Are your opinions are more defined, do you speak up more because you've overcome a physical pain threshold?

    Everyone I know has the opposite effect I guess. Their modifications "complete" them rather than change them. Similar to a transsexual, where the mind doesn't fit the body but about body aesthetics.

    Personally, half of mine were just experiments, how far can I push myself, to associate and know myself in regards to the physical world if that makes sense.

    First off, welcome! Yay!

    My piercings and tattoos are more of an extension of me; As far as them changing me, I wouldn't say that...

    I don't think that the piercings have changed you, I think it is more likely that with your new piercings you feel more comfortable playing out a more hard core role or expressing something you have always hidden secret that you now feel your new piercings allow you to bring to the surface.

    it's all you. you now feel like you are taking control of yourself and your body, and it's giving you more confidence.

    Maybe you're picking up talk radio stations?

    I understand what you're talking about. You've got a more primal male animal feel. You know it's hot and now you project that hotness more. Go get 'em tiger! Woof!

    I got my nipples pierced, too, about 3 months ago. They are fully healed now and I have both the rings and curved barbell. I want to get the straight barbell, too. It hasn't changed my personality, but my nipples are more sensitive.

    Same here. I actually emailed a surgeon who specializes in penis surgeries and asked him if he could close up a PA. He can. That $75 hole can be closed up for $6000 (and that was quite a few years ago... dunno what he'd charge now.)

    My whole adventure with body piercing was part of the second adolescence I experienced when I came out at age 32. A couple piercings grew out, and I had to remove them. I abandoned my frenum because the placement was wrong. And when I started gaining weight and getting moobs, I ditched the nipple piercings; why draw attention to the droopiest bits of my then sagging body? The last thing to go was the 4ga ear tube; last August, the day after my 48th birthday, I looked in the mirror and decided that I was too old to be looking like that.

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    No, no radio stations...hehehe...and I can think that the piercings could just be a physical exploration of my new...errr..."hardcore" side. Hehehe.
