What Piercings Do You Want To Have Done?

  1. 1. Which piercings do you want?



Recommended Posts

Guest Ariel Mai

I just am thinking about what I want pierced right now and I am getting my 2nd hole on my ears, I am getting my belly button, cartilage, and top of the nose (stud). So many girls my age have all the piercings I named done except the belly button , but a lot of my friends want their belly button pierced. I think they are fun, and if they fit, they can look absolutely amazing. My mom told me she would take me to get my ears done, but she said I would have to wait till estrogen has its effects then loose weight and have a nice body before getting my belly button pierced. So I have a bit of time for that to happen, but ears are soon. Anyways what would you guys/ and gals like to have done piercing wise?

Lots of Love,

Ariel

I'm going to get both my ears pierced this summer. I want to get girly earings and I'm feeling more daring than my parents are but my mom doesn't want to push it too much. She's afraid I'll get beat up. What we're doing instead is getting plastic earings because they don't look girly at all but at least they're rings. They aren't the studs that guys normally get they just look cheap. I wish I could just wear whatever I feel like but there is the safety issue.

Already have 2 holes in each ear. But would like to get a nose stud one day possibly and if I can ever drop the weight I will be rewarding myself with a belly ring.

I had my ears pierced in Feb. I may go have my belly button done, but thats it. Forget all those facial piercings and the nipples, OUCH! I'll leave those for someone else.

I have 4 in each ear and have a rook in my right ear. The rook really hurt but I like it. I had my belly button done but took it out after it got infected after it was already healed. I could have put it back in after the infection was gone but decided against it.

I do want to get a nose stud but probably will never get it done because of work.

WELL. I already have plugs in my ears but they aren't gross or huge at all. But a lot of guys at my school are getting like one of the tops of their ears pierced, i think its called the cartilage or something haha i dunno it kinda looks cool, I'm contemplating it.

I'm thinking both ears, but asymmetrical in number. Two each in the right and left lobe and two in the left top cartilage is an image that's been sitting in my mind for a while. Nowhere else, though. I hate needles enough after the tattoos.

I already have 2 gauge plugs in both ears, plus an extra normal sized piercing in one, plus an eyebrow piercing... I was thinking of maybe getting an industrial piercing done too, and a tattoo. I'll probably wait until I've been on T for a while before getting the tattoo, though, as it'll be around my upper arm, and I don't want it to stretch if I get significantly more buff or something :)

I have all the piercings I want now. I had more but I've let a few of them go for a more traditional female look.

I have my ears pierced 3 times in each ear but now I just wear one pair of earrings.

I've got my nose pierced.

I've got my tongue pierced.

I had my labret pierced but I'm letting that one close up.

I had an industrial in each ear, too, but I'm letting those two close as well.

I had my belly button pierced, too, but that just didn't work for me so I took that one out as well.

..I went through a goth phase a few years ago.

Yeah I am thinking about getting an industrial done. :)

Oh and I am gauging my first hole on the lobes to a small size to i can still wear regular earrings without it looking ridiculous, or plugs w/e i feel like at the time. I am defintly getting belly button done. Yeah I am not a huge fan about facial piercings on myself. I dont mind them on others as long as you dont gauge lip rings....

I want a tattoo but have no clue what to get done.

I wear studs in guy mode and put in girl earrings in girl mode, thank goodness that i only have 10 more school days before full time :)

I have the cartilage in my left ear pierced once. I always wanted one there but never had any desire for anywhere else. I always felt that getting my ears pierced in the usual place would look stupid on me...to girly. I know some guys could carry it off but not me.

Surprise tongue isn't on the poll, speaking of which, I am going to that this week. I have both ears pierced but I want more there and I want a lip piercing I just dont know which, oh and still contemplating the bellybutton one.

If you get an industrial, you won't be able to sleep on that side until it heals up..like a month or two later.

Don't take this the wrong way, I'm just throwing it out there in general. I would avoid getting a Monroe. I have seen it many times but of those many times, it only looked good on about 3 girls. I think a small stud nose ring is really cute and it's girlie. I don't like a septum piercing on anyone. It looks ridiculous and makes you look like a bull.

But that's just my opinion. I went through my piercing phase back in 2004 so now I've just settled in to what piercings I like and which ones, to me, were worth keeping. I've shyed away from gauging because it's a permanent thing and consider having a large hole in your ear may not be considered professional when trying to interview for that dream job after college.

Gauges close up Lizzie, well for the most part they do, many of my friends had them and when they took them out there took a few weeks to get back to a normal earring size but they did. I wasn't going to go to big prolly an 8 which is small still. How much does an industrial hurt, it is still a maybe for me I think it would be cute. Yeah I forgot tongue, I don't think I want my tongue done, but yeah a nose stud I want. Yeah monroes only look good on some people. I have only seen 3 people who septums have actually looked good on. They are super hard to pull off, or like lizzie said you look like a bull.

I had an Industrial, Wrist, Snake bites, ankle, Hips, Belly, and the normal ear piercing. But now i have only the industrial, lobes and snake bites. I know belly buttons you have to maintain and clean constantly or else it gets infected and stinks and stuff.

I definately want to pierce my nose and possibly lips! :D

Perhaps ears as well if I feel like it at some point, though I don't really like ear jewelery that is just a rounded shape or hanging dingling from the ear, it would have to be something special for me to pierce my ears I think..perhaps something that connects from the cartilage to the lower part of the ear.

/dreammode_off and back to reality :(

One day...ONE DAY!

An industrial kinda hurts since you're essentially getting 2 piercings and joining them with a bar. Mine was tender for a few months until it healed. From my experience, the tongue hurt the least but I have active saliva glands so I drooled a bit during the prep and set up. Also once the swelling went down and it was all healed up I took out the metal testicles and switched them for more prettier non-metal testicles. I haven't chipped a tooth or anything. I also don't play with it. Some times by accident I'll bite down on it which freaks me out because I don't want to crack a tooth or the ball on the piercing. I used to have one that was flat on top and a regular ball on the bottom. The flat part had an image of Hello Kitty. :)

...I've grown out of that.

I have both my ears pierced, but I only ever wear one earring. The only time I ever have both earrings in is if it's a fancy occasion, like a wedding. Or something (rarely though) if I can't decide between which earring I wanna wear I'll wear both. They won't match though :P

I would LOVE to get snakebites, one of my fav piercings and I would love it. But it would just look weird on me, I wouldn't be able to pull it off. :(

      Made it back to the Ozarks finally! At my closest point to you I spent 2 hours stuck on the freeway in a traffic jam crossing the Hudson River. It was a long day! I got back to find my HVAC system not working, so I have to scramble before the cold weather sets in. Then get my studio set up and start work. Along the way, I'm trying to relearn to play the guitar. Meetings with doctors this week to see what my metabolism is up to, plus the oncologist to provide follow up support from my cancer surgery. Lots of things to do! Hugs and smiles to you all!

      Thank you Sabine for expressing that so well. It has been a struggle to find myself, so it's very nice to know I'm not alone in my experience.

      Once upon a time. In a land far far away. I was an die hard home mechanic. I have vivid memorys of changing a clutch on a Vauxhall cavalier in the snow. Thats how dedicated i was. Taking an engine from an old ford, stripping it down to components and then putting it all back together again did not even phase me. Also saved me fortunes in Garage bills. Even before that I was a Motorbike fanatic and still hold a full bike licence. But havent been on one for about Twenty Five years. I wouldnt like to recall the amount of wrecked bikes i got my hands on and rebuilt from the wheels up.   As its been said. There is female mechanics. But honestly i have no interest in working on cars or indeed bikes anymore.   I still have a very keen interest in classic cars. When i say classic I mean Anything pre 1985.   But as far as working on them goes. I am physically not strong enough or have the tenacity to even want to do it anymore.   The Hormones took my strength, and wow did it take my physical grunt, and the wanting to do this anymore.  I can still impress my partner by seeing something on the road classic and being able to name it on site. But im just not intersted in what makes it tick. It also doesnt make it better that i was doing this in my prime and now i have waved that goodbye.   However. Now I enjoy fashion,  clothes and yes shoes to. Which is a bonus as i work in retail.  I wouldnt say its a hobbie as such but  really enjoy it.   In a way the hormones do alter your personality in that sense  in my opnion,. Well it did for me. I still have a wealth of male only knowledge so to speak. but the implimentation just isnt fourthcoming anymore.    With DIY I can still do things but as long as they not to physical. Such as hang wallpaper etc. I was also good at that. In fact i was good with my hands period and would be happy to attempt most things   In a way having that knowledge is a good thing. as if i have to take my car to the garage i play dumb but actually will know if they are trying to get one over on me.   I do not feel sad that it changed my outlook from what i knew. If anything its giving me the knowledge from another life as i see it. Practical knowledge is never a bad thing.

      .Trans is by no means a modern thing. Not by a long chalk. Especially Hinduism.   To Name a few.   Shikhandi: This warrior in the Kurukshetra war in most tellings of the Mahabharata was female at birth but changed gender later in life. Born Shikhandini, the girl in one version of the story was raised as a male by King Drupada, the girl's father. The king even had her married to the princess of Dasharna. Upon complaints from the new bride, Shikhandini fled into the forest and met a Yaksha and exchanged genders. Now taking the name Shikhandi, he remained a man until his death at the battle of Mahabharat.   Shiva and Parvati: The supreme god of Shaivism, Shiva has often been held as the ultimate embodiment of masculinity, but as far back as the Kushan era, there have also been depictions of Shiva in  an androgynous composite of Shiva and his wife, Parvoti. The form originated when Parvoti, desiring to share Shiva’s experiences, asked for their forms to literally be joined. “What is being said is that if the inner masculine and feminine meet, you are in a perpetual state of ecstasy,” explains Hindu scholar Sadhguru. Most often, the Ardhanarishvara is depicted with the female form of Parvoti on the left and the masculine attributes of Shiva on the right   Bahuchara Mata: Bahuchara Mata was traveling with her sisters and threatened by the marauder Bapiya. After she and her sisters self-immolated their own breasts, Bapiya was cursed with impotence until he began to dress an act as a Woman Today, the Hindu goddess is worshipped as the originator and patron of the hijras, trans and intersex Bangladeshis considered in the faith to be of a “third gender.”     Its actually awesome when you look these gods up. See what they got up to.     I just copied and pasted the meanings and there spellings online. Just google them. You will see for yourself.   Great Fun fact Josie

      In Arabic, Hijra means a pilgrimage, a journey.   Also, it’s the term used to describe transgender women in India. Perhaps it’s a loan word. Perhaps it’s not. But it’s fitting that the same idea is echoed today in the word transgender. The idea of crossing a boundary, making a journey. Being trans is a pilgrimage, it’s moving from one place to another. It used to be something seen as sacred by the ancient cultures of the world. In many ways it still is. Just my musings for today.

      It’s sad because it’s someone who was a real person. Sure there was controversy about her and Dave chapelle but to his credit he bounced his jokes off of her before the controversy and she laughed at them the loudest so they pretty much blew it out of proportion. I think it says something about how Dave actually respected her input as a comedian. Maybe she was ostracized because she wasn’t playing into the politics? It certainly makes sense when her shows tended to be very small compared to other people. It goes to show how entertainment can literally be hard on the very people they claim to be supportive of. She was transgender but virtually blacklisted by the industry. Of course they didn’t openly boycott her shows but she didn’t have large audiences. There’s so many facets to people and making life an “either/or” political game is really damaging when everyone has faults or shortcomings. Comedy has suffered a lot because of political influence being so bloodthirsty lately, when it used to be all in good fun.    Virtue signaling is the term you are looking for, when someone says something to gain points for sounding correct. That’s the sadly artificial world we live in. It takes guts to stand out and be different. Which is why all this talk about being inclusive to diversity is intellectually dishonest when the political drive is to make everyone fit into the same thinking cap. That’s not how people work. That’s not how we have intellectual debate or actually work through conversation with ideas. That’s basically the same dirty word that the political end of entertainment says they are opposed to: fascism. Instead of allowing people to be different they are using a huge industry to dictate government and politics. Miriam websters definition is:    a centralized autocraticgovernment headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.    Only in this case the dictator is an ideal that is unrealistic. Just because it’s not declared officially doesn’t mean it’s not a driving force. Change comes from dialogue, not from any form of oppression. Maybe that’s a lesson here too.

      Hello Kai and thanks for the update.  I understand its hard around the house but it will pass when you are able to set out on your own.  It will happen.  Hang tough.  Soon enough you'll be able to connect with a gender therapist and from there you will have someone to speak with who understands and can help you one on one.  Until then, keep posting and sharing your thoughts.  Please don't let the anxiety get to you.   Jani

      Along with any changes in hobbies, etc. due to emotional changes brought on by hormones, age will also temper our opinions on things.  We stop doing some activities and try new things just because we can.

      I've come up on a year of going by he/him pronouns with my friend group at school. It doesn't seem like that long ago and its hard to think I have come this far already. I know a year is not that long but after questioning myself for over 2 1/2 years I feel like things are starting to make sense, I think. I feel ready to tell people, to come out and say I am still questioning but I would prefer to be called he/him. I want to try my name more and see if it is comfortable for me. I think I am getting a new job and they asked for my preferred name and gender. I wanted so badly to put down male, and my name that I'm trying but its so hard when my parents disagree with everything I do moving in that direction. I still live in the house with them and its so hard for me to do things when everything I try seems to make my mom upset. My mom basically breathed a sigh of relief when I said I wasn't going by a different name with my friends, this makes me upset because for some reason her feelings matter more to me then me being comfortable. I don't go by he/him in the house, even though my whole family knows about me question, because there is a fear that something will go wrong. That I am going to make people upset, I don't have many friends to begin with and I don't want to lose any people in my life. There is so much anxiety with coming out and I know that's part of transitioning but it feels like my social anxiety makes it all worse. I never correct people when they misgender me because I freeze up and continue on. I cant correct people to save my life and I don't pass enough to present as male, people will think of me weird and/or hate me before they know me. I know that's probably not true, but when you are so self critical of yourself you think everyone else in the world is the same to you.  I wanted to start gender therapy but the last time I asked my parents for that they got me a religious regular therapist who knows nothing about trans kids. I am scared to talk to them again and get a real gender therapist so I don't have to be so dam confused all the time. I don't have money to pay for one myself and my insurance doesn't cover it so I am stuck with my thoughts. I don't know, I guess I just needed to rant about my situation. It doesn't make things better but other people know.

      Hello EZ and welcome aboard.   I agree wholeheartedly with this sentiment.  So you're on T, to assist with some medical challenges you have.  No big deal.  I'm not sure why you need to tell your work mates about your medications.  I'm not sure your fellow firemen would care about any changes.  As to that you have hidden an aspect of your life, we all have pieces we keep private.     I don't know your levels (we don't allow that on this site) but if your concerned with the beard, etc, talk to your doctor to see if you can lower your dosage a bit.  Even as a test to determine how you feel.    I'm glad you found us and signed up. Cheers,  Jani

      I checked the news on that story and it's so sad what people say. All of this for a bad joke that I ear since I was 5. A suicide is incredibly sad but the fact that it's politiced and used is even more sad... I hate that everything transgender always somehow, someway end up on that stupid internet thing where people make points for fake outrage... oh wait!? ok I will shut up now
    • Josie Beth
      I just learned about it today because I’m subscribed to a friend of hers. It’s really hitting home because she was in my age group and also a late transitioner.   I wonder why. I know that might be impossible to figure out. Just knowing how she was as a person and how much she tried to make others laugh it is a shock. But many times we don’t know what is going on with people even if they seem happy.    I can speculate, maybe she was in a downward spiral because she was not really finding companionship. Maybe she was frustrated because she wanted to bring happiness and not many people appreciated it. There’s so many potential reasons that she touched on in a joking way. I guess the takeaway is just to not be afraid to show someone what’s really going on inside. But even then it may not be enough? It’s difficult to confront myself with the same questions.
