Sick, perverted, no self respect?
That is a broad generalization to cast upon all those that have piercings, tell me do you feel the same way about tattoo's?
It would help if you had a better understanding of the subject of piercing.
Lets just remember that many would consider that being a nudist is equally sick and perverted and as nudists maybe we should all learn to have some tolerance and understanding.
i see nothing wrong with body piercings at any beach, no matter who may be present. to me it's no different to having an ear pierced, or a ring on a finger. and i certainly do not think you should hide them just because there may be kids about. wear what you want.
I have one pierced nipple and a frenum, and I don't see what difference jewelry could possibly make. In fact, I quite like to see other people's jewelry. It often gives me ideas about future piercings for myself. You mentioned you had piercing around your balls, is that a Scrotal or Hafada?
I too have pierced nipples (USED to have my penis pierced, but it just wasn't working for me). I don't think I'd take my rings out either way. Quite frankly, I've never taken them out, as I'm afraid i wouldn't be able to get them back in!! LOL!!
