"I think it's cool; it's another expression of body art, and I don't regret it. I guess I'm somewhat moderate I don't like a lot of facial piercings. The ones I would consider would be something I could cover up or disguise. I just have four now, and next will be the nipples."

"One or two is fine, but when they go crazy with it, like tongue piercing and all that, I think it's really weird. Besides, it's not sanitary. My dentist would give you a 20-minute lecture on why tongue piercing is bad for you. And why do they want to be like women? Piercing is a woman thing. I think right now, for a guy to be unique, he has to not be pierced."
"I like women being pierced more so than men. A "pinball' will turn you on every time."

"Well, I guess it depends on where they're pierced. I have a lot of male friends who have piercings, and I like the way they look. Years ago, when it wasn't common, there was a long-haired Indian who had one in his tongue, and he did this clicking sound, and the way he did it, I thought that was pretty sexy ... but I would be scared to go out with him."
"Personally, I don't care for it. Too unconventional. It excludes you from certain things, getting hired by some companies. It automatically puts you into a category, like you're kind of a rebel. And not everybody is accepting to those who go against the grain."
"It depends on where the piercing is. If it's on the ears, OK. Anything else has got to go. I see these rings and studs on the bridge, the eyebrow, the nose, I feel pain. The tongue that has got to hurt. I accidentally bite my tongue, I'm in tears. How can someone want that aggravation even pay for it?"
