You’ve got your piercings because you love them. But did you ever wonder what potential partners might think of your body modifications? Remember, it’s your body, so it’s your choice. However, it’s always interesting to delve into the mind of the opposite sex for a little intel on how your piercings might be received.
Keep it clean
Women who love piercings on men have one consistent request – and that’s all about hygiene. If you’re going to have a nose ring, a stud in your ear, a barbell in your brow, or a nipple accessory, you better know how to take care of it.
It’s a universal fact that infected piercing sites are a big no-no when it comes to dating (and, more importantly, your health). So make sure the pro doing the piercing gives you all the info you need for cleaning, maintaining, and keeping it hygienic.
Keep it under control
A lot of women prefer one or two wisely chosen piercings vs lots of poorly planned rings, studs and bars all over your body. So it’s essential that you think carefully about what style, position and look you really want. You don’t want to regret your first one, and keep going back for more and more because you can’t make up your mind what works best.
That said, if you do want to cover yourself in piercings, you go for it. There will definitely be women out there who will love that vibe. And it’s an easy way to find someone who
will be compatible with your outlook and interests.
It’s all about personal preference
Women’s attitudes about men with piercings really just come down to personal opinion. It’s like many things in life. Piercings vs no piercings. Tattoos vs un-inked flesh. Deodorant vs antiperspirant. Jam vs peanut butter. There’s no right or wrong here. All views are welcome!
Tips for men on how to get a stylish piercing
The most important thing is that you get the piercing that you’re comfortable with. And to do that, you’ll want to follow a few essential tips on male piercings. These include:
- Do your research. There are lots of options for male piercings – more than 10 placements on the ear alone! So take your time to decide what you want. Scroll pictures online. Chat with your mates…
- Talk to the pros. But don’t rely on your friends for the ultimate conclusion. Professional piercers have a much better idea about what and where, so discuss your vision with them first.
- Make sure you’re ready. Don’t go out partying the night before – you’ll want to be well rested and on your A-game. On the day of your appointment, leave enough time to eat and drink beforehand, so you’re properly hydrated. Wear something loose if you’re getting a body piercing.
Remember, your piercing is only a small part of you. You wouldn’t reject someone because they were on the other side of deodorant vs antiperspirant debate – or the jam vs peanut butter deliberation. So it’s unlikely that a potential partner would reject you just because they weren’t massively into piercings.
With this information you can go ahead and get that piercing safe in the knowledge that you’re doing it for all the right reasons.
