5 Guys Share What They Really Think Of Girl’s Piercings

As an eager 7 year old girl, I remember begging my mother to let me pierce my ears. Since then, I have gotten a second piercing on my earlobe. I’ve been curious about other piercings, but never been adventurous enough to get anything considered “abnormal.” I’ve asked my boyfriend a number of times how he would feel if I got such-and-such piercing, and I’m usually met with “if you want it, go for it, I guess.” I’m a strong believer in doing what you want, and not because someone else will find it attractive and appealing. However, because I’ve never really gotten a straight answer from a guy on what they think of piercings, I decided to ask a bunch of guys, anonymously, what they honestly thought

Nose rings

“I think these are cute on girls. I have liked nose studs and hoops on girls. It all depends on how the girl rocks it.”

“Adds character.”

Not my favorite but something small is okay.”

“Fine, as long as it’s not a bull ring.”

So what’s the verdict? Nose rings are a go.

Tragus piercings

“Tragus is attractive. I think girls with a tragus piercing are adventurous, although I have no evidence to back that up.”

“Ew, no, that’s the one part of your ear that shouldn’t be touched.”

“Hot.”

“Intriguing, not always noticeable.”

The verdict? Definitely some mixed signals on this one.

Industrial piercing

“Meh, seems like a trend that girls into hardcore music/lifestyle get. I am impartial to it.”

“Hate them. Why must you connect two holes in your ear.”

“I love these piercings as it is creative and does not inconvenience the individual with the piercing. Do it up ladies, I love them.”

“Hot.”

The verdict? Most guys so no. It’s not going to stop me, though…

Eyebrow piercings

“I would prefer not to look at an eyebrow piercing. I feel like it just distracts me away from the rest of the face.”

“Only is hot on girls with a moderate amount of tattoos.”

“Kinda trashy.”

“Looks good on most girls. But not my favorite.”

The verdict? Most are not a fan but overall, it depends on the girl.

Hip Dermals

Mysterious.

“These are hot. Although, I don’t fully understand how they work….”

“Excessive.”

“I’ve actually never personally been a big fan of these…but girls. If they make you feel beautiful, do it.”

The verdict? These guys are confused so girls, do what you want.

Nipple piercings

“I don’t get why girls do this…like doesn’t that hurt? And it’s not pleasurable for the guy, tbh.”

“Yes, spice up your sex life.

“Ouch, but sexy.”

“Hook up- yes. Girlfriend- no.”

“A little trashy.”

The verdict? They think they’re sexy but not girlfriend material.

Helix/Forward Helix

“I think it looks kind of dumb.”

“Not as ugly as a lot of other piercings.”

“That’s fine. I’m pretty ambivalent towards them.”

“Do it up ladies, they look great.”

“As long as it’s clean.

The Verdict? They’re regular piercings so guys don’t care a lot about them.

Girls, you would be surprised at how many responses I got back that just said “huh?” “What’s that?” “Uh…I had to google that” “Uhm…if I knew what it was, maybe I could tell you.”

It’s your body. Do what makes you love your body. Boys opinions can be fun, but at the end of the day, the only thing that really matters is how YOU feel. And honestly, it looks like boys don’t really care THAT much. They’re going to like you for the person you are, and most of the time, they won’t notice these piercings until after they’ve known you for a while. Hip dermals aren’t necessarily screaming out at you. So what is my verdict? You do you, girl.

  1. I’m thinking about getting my septum pierced but my boyfriend won’t give me a straight up answer he’ll just just say sure, or whatever. I want to know if guys think it’s trashy or it’s not meant for someone that doesn’t have many tattoos or doesn’t listen the hardcore music.

    • it is not trashy, it is just so so ugly… I can not imagine a girl, who could ware it in a way that it would make her look better. No matter how cute the girl – septum will kill it! I would leave a blind date fast if someone is so blind to wear it as something she thinks will make her look better.
      We trim our nose hair, we get out our buggers – nose is a place we want to keep clean – now they but something in there that looks like golden nose hair or like 2 buggers are attached… good luck wearing that!

  2. They are so gross. It’s like you’re TRYING to look terrible. I’ve never seen ONE that I think adds to it, and I’ve never seen one girl that I thought “Yea she has a great ass and a beautiful face, but if only she had steel boogars in her nose. Nope no cow ring in her face that’s a deal breaker.”

  3. I don’t like piercings but I’ve given up complaining about them, the only girls who like me have several, and the ones without want nothing to do with me. Looks like piercings are my thing now. If you can’t beat ’em..

  4. Nipple piercing, or septum or the ones girls put on lips….that crap is fucking trashy, ugly, totally whore-looking. Please take that ugly shit off.

  5. They make a woman look cheap and slutty. Not to mention that the process creates a needless hole on your body that can either give you perichondiosis or sepsis. Its something pretty much only girls like. To put it in perspective for girls it’s like how some bodybuilder guys want to look like a eugenics experiment gone wrong.

  6. I am a girl but I have a loooot of good guy friends. I’ve asked them all this. Pretty much EVERY guy I ever met hates septum piercings. I personally don’t like them either, yeah kinda trashy. It looks like a bull ring. Most like a regular little stud nose piercing or a very thin, small hoop though.

  7. If you want to attract a high-quality male, then the best advice I can give to young women–from an honest 30-year-old man’s perspective–is to

    1) limit your sex partners as much as possible and only have sex in a long-term relationship; High quality males seek healthy, fertile women who exhibit the qualities of a trustworthy, reliable, of high character, mentally-healthy mother. Having many sex partners indicates you are being used and cast off by other males, and are therefore of lower value as a mate. It also indicates promiscuity which is a turnoff for both the trustworthiness and character points.

    2) don’t get ANY tattoos or piercings. No matter what you want to believe, it’s best for young women to find a mate when they’re 18-25 as this is when their sexual market value is at its peak. Men value fertility, health, trustworthiness and feminine virtuous psychological traits like nurturing and empathy which indicate you’ll be a good mother and will add prestige to the family. Men care about their status in the social hierarchy above all else, as this is how women seek out mates. So having a female who indicates antisocial behavior (tattoos and piercings), indicates promiscuity and age/mileage is a turnoff.

    In short, keep your skin and body clean. You’ll have the best choice of male mates between 18 and 25 so don’t waste that time having casual sex and ruining your opportunities to find a quality, long-term mate. I personally, am totally turned off by tattoos and piercings. Anything that indicates a girl has been with a lot of other guys, or would be an unreliable mother in any way. I have conversations with my male friends about these topics all the time, and in privacy, they’ll admit the same feelings. Be a good girl and you’ll get a good guy. If you’re like most girls and you want that wealthy, handsome, confident, popular male partner then don’t sleep around, keep your skin clear, stay healthy and go find him before you hit 25. Don’t listen to feminists or beta males attempting to manipulate you by telling you what you want to here. This is the truth, it’s not just anecdotal as the very basis for this information is rooted in economics and biological anthropology.

    • you lost all credibility the moment you referred to someone’s partner as a “mate.” let folk decide what happens to their body, and if you don’t like it? great, you’re probably not their type either.

      • No he didn’t and folk can do whatever they want to do with their body but at least now that same folk can’t blame it on “I didn’t know” when her/his trashy looks attract trash.

    • This is 100% true, but girls who fall into those categories will dispute it. Guys trying to get laid by agreeing with whatever will also dispute it. But, if you want a real man who is good to you and will make a lifelong partner in life, you also have to be the type of girl a man like that will want, unless you want to spend your life with boys who never grow up.

    • Cannot agree more. In the same time I cannot help to welcome this self-selection of trashy, idiotic, self-centered, deranged, immature people from the group of potential mates/partners.

      Imagine how much time and money we, the successful, balanced, self-confident males are saving by not having to sift through the trash!!!! It’s already marked as trash, yay!

    • what a load of rubbish. The only men worth having are those who respect a womans choices( particularly with regards to her own body) and dont see themselves as some kind of ‘ prize’ a woman earns by ‘towing the line’.

  8. If you want to do something for yourself do it. Take it from a 30 year old engineering woman. I took my nipple piercings out for my boyfriend at 18. I regretted it for so long. That guy was trash and my image was more important to him than who I am as a person.
    I have an amazing classy husband now and I recently got my nipples re pierced, he was unsure but now likes them. But more than that, he doesnt care about that, he cares about who I am.

    Those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.
    If being yourself is a turnoff to someone, then you don’t want to spend your life with them or give them your body.

    • Of course if you turn off someone don’t be with that someone.

      However you lost all your credibility when on one hand you despised your ex-boyfriend for not liking your piercings and caring about your appearance more then you as a person, yet on the other hand your person seems to be defined by a trivial external appearance such as your piercings!

      Also, you mistake your husband’s indulgence in regards to your proclivities for class, he either loves you or doesn’t care, let’s hope it’s the first. Obviously you don’t love him enough because if you did and had some sense and cared about your husband a little more, than you would have taken the hint.

  9. All piercings are gross. I can deal with the single, small, normal studs that most women have done. Anything more than that. Extra ring sin ears, nose, belly… NO! All gross. God made the body naturally beautiful. Why add that stuff to it? Not pleasurable to see or touch at all.

  10. I am a teen girl who has a central lip piercing, a nose ring, a tongue piercing, two lobe piercings on either, a helix piercing and am still adding to my collection.

    I personally say “fuck everyone, this is for me” because I am a grungie/tomboy, but i guess i can understand why s o m e girls may want to know if guys think piercings are hot.

    In my personal opinion, from experience, I think some guys think it’s hot, and some are a little intimidated. More than anything, its about the sort of person you are dating or are looking to attract.

    If your looking to be in a relationship with a ‘soft featured’guy who has no tatts or piercings, the chances are (not always but predominantly) they’ll prefer you with either no piercings, or with few and small.

    On the other hand if you want to date a guy who is emo, punk, grunge, then you are most likely going to draw the eye if you have a few more edgy piercings.

    But like I always say—Do it for you and no-one else, and if the person you are fretting over cares about you enough hell get over it!

    • Lmao! You’re a teen so I’ll give you a pass but from what I’ve seen (and I’ve been around for a few decades!) the softies are those with piercings and tattoos.

      No self-confident, mature, assured and successful individual needs tattoos or piercings to prove that.

      If on the other hand you’re looking to attract individuals with metal in their bodies and tattoos, by all means then get piercings and tattoos just don’t expect self-confidence and maturity from those guys. Tattoos and piercings was never a sign of masculinity at best questionable upbringing and environment.

    • Dropping the F Bomb and using bad language makes you look and sound trashy and a skank. I have several piercings including a stud in my nose. I am a darn good mother, I have a good paying job, I attend church and I am saved by the Grace of God. I am well educated. (I even have a degree) I attend corporate meetings. So I have piercings AND I work in the business field. I am in Banking. My piercings do not affect my ability to do my7 job and it doesn’t make me less respected by the CEOs. I find it hilarious that people judge others by their piercings, and those that are doing the judging curse like sailors, drink alcohol a lot, and most even do other drugs in private. Yet we are deemed the trashy people? HAHAHA. I may have a lot of piercings but I am a lot more classy than you will EVER be m’dear.

      • You ain’t classy in my books and vanity was never high on those hoping to go to Heaven, not in the holly book I’m reading anyway.

        Maybe you should be concerned more with what goes on the inside than mutilating a God given perfect body. God bless!

  11. Nose rings scream that a girl is easy, and they’re overdone. Every girl under 35 has them, it seems, but it adds nothing to them. So, it doesn’t make them original or unique. It does, however, take away from them.
    If a girl is ugly and desperate, it might make them more interesting, but any girl who is even okay looking will only come out looking worse with a tattoo or nose piercing.
    If you ask a guy who is trying to get laid or please his girl he’ll say he loves them. He’ll say whatever you want to hear, but most guys worth having think they’re gross.
    This is mean, but it’s true. Flame all you want, but some want to know the truth. There it is.

    • Logan, ever heard of Sania Mirza? She is a famous tenis player now 34, mother of a two year old son. And if you ever google her history you will know she was never as hell an easy women. The nose stud looks absolutely adorable on her. As long as a girl can carry it beautifully I think you shouldn’t judge it

    • Logan in my country it’s a custom for certain caste people to wear nose piercing (not the septum one) They wear it as soon as they attain their menarche till they grow old like 70-80. And as a girl who has a lot of Brahmin friends let me they you they look so beautiful on those ladies be it 13 or 80. So don’t trash every women with a nose stud in this world, they could be mothers, grandmas and even highly educated people.

  12. This is 100% true, but girls who fall into those categories will dispute it. Guys trying to get laid by agreeing with whatever will also dispute it. But, if you want a real man who is good to you and will make a lifelong partner in life, you also have to be the type of girl a man like that will want, unless you want to spend your life with boys who never grow up.

  13. Every man on this post who says anything bad about a woman because they have a pircing is either over 50 or a fucking pussy who has trouble getting laid.

    • Exactly! What gets me is how you are deemed a “bad mother” if you have piercings! I am a darn good mother, I go to church, and I am saved by the grace of God. I have Multiple piercings. 3 in my ears, my nose, an off centered labret, both nipples are pierced, my belly button, my clitoral hood, and my inner labia has one piercing. I am going to get my tragus pierced next and I also want a dermal on my temple next to my right eye. My piercings have nothing to do with how good of a mother I am and it has NOTHING to do with being promiscuous or being trashy. I have only slept with 3 men and I am 36. The men I have slept with I was in a committed relationship. The first I was engaged to, the second I was married to him, and the third I have been engaged to for 5 almost 6 years. He finds all of my piercings sexy as hell (except for the nose ring. He doesn’t much care for that one.) But it was his idea for me to pierce my inner labia and my clitoral hood.

      • You don’t get it, and it’s so simple that it amazes me so many people don’t get it.
        You can be the holy Virgin Mary, but if you persist in wearing piercings, rings or tattoos all over your body you will be PERCEIVED as being trashy by most men (if they were to be truly truthful to themselves).
        It doesn’t matter if it’s fair, right or just to be perceived that way. It’s just the way it is. I remember reading somewhere once that we size up another person within 3 seconds of when we first meet. We pick up visual queues and make lightning fast decisions about someone without necessarily having all the facts.

        That’s why when you go for a job or when you are paraded in front of a judge you try and look as respectable as you can if you want to be approvingly looked on.
        Let’s put it this way, if you were to meet an investment adviser of whom you were thinking of investing your million dollars and they rock up sporting neck and arm tattoos, facial piercings, nose rings and with a Black Sabath ring tone on their smart phone I bet you wouldn’t invest your hard earned million with them.

        It’s true and we all know it. You can deny it and swim against the tide by turning your body into some ghastly Christmas tree but you can’t complain when you are treated differently by the society you live in and are a member of.

    • Nope, completely false. But the beginning of your sentence (“Every man who says this…”) was enough to discredit anything that followed. All generalities are false… you see the contradiction? 😉

  14. You mention God. But in Exodus he says hland I will adorn your ears and nose with fine jewelry. Also I believe it was Abraham who gave his bride a golden nose ring as a bridal gift. A gift of nose rings and earrings was a status of wealth. Piercings are not unholy. My piercings have not affected my ability to have a well paying career and it hasn’t affect my ability to keep that job. The CEOs have an extreme amount of respect for me and I am in business meetings quite frequently. I am a great mommy and my kids have everything they need. I don’t go to bars. I don’t go “clubbing”. I have never been out dancing. I have had 3 glasses of wine in 6 years and one glass of eggnog. It has been over a year since my last glass of wine. (Business meeting that I had to attend and I sipped on a glass of wine to show my respect.) So I don’t drink. I don’t do drugs. And guess what? I have only slept with 3 men. The first time I was 19 and engaged to be married. The second guy I was marries to him for 8 years. I divorced him because he hit me frequently, he started doing drugs and having affairs. The third guy I have been with him for 6 years and we are going to he married in a year and a half. Just about everyone I know yas slept with people in the double digits. Me? The girl with all the piercings? The girl with the piercings that you say is promiscuous? She has only slept with 3 people, goes to church, doesn’t cuss, and she doesn’t even drink. I am proud of myself. I am self confident. Which before I had no confidence, no self esteem. I was anorexic. Now by the grace of God I wear my 128 pounds with pride, I wear my jewelry with confidence and I wear them proudly. And it was my fiancee’s idea to get the piercings under my clothes. They look dainty, they look elegant. And he enjoys them.
