Adults And Piercings

I have had my share of piercings through the years and have stretched ears currently at 1inch and I have NEVER had as many problems with the piercings themselves as I have with the adult population and their views on modification. Especially living in Johnston county NC. To put the amount of discrimination we have : the johnston county welcome sign said "home of the KKK" some years back. Anyways, I'm well aware of these consequences but I get more hate from people on my ears than I do about my skin disease. And many even say if it wasn't for the disease I wouldn't have them because my confidence would be high. Sometimes I feel that the south is the only place this occurs. And there is as much discrimination as there used to be, the only difference is the topic has changed. I love body modification as you can tell, so I hope to see the acceptance of it flourish. As is everyone else I'm sure.

Hang in there the amount of ink or piercings you have has nothing to do with your self esteem in my option.<br />
Just don't stretch your ears to far if you ever changed your mind you are looking at a bug medical bill to restore them, of course you may never change your mind you wont have a problem. Other than that live life on your own terms and enjoy it
