I pose similar questions related to piercings.
Anybody here have a Piercing? What made you do it?
Where abouts you got it? How much did it hurt?

I just got my nose pierced, contrary to the liking of a close friend.

what is cRM?
This is NOT a forum for religious, political, or nationalistic discussion, sexually-charged jokes, debates, flames, gender wars, or personal crusades. Posts will be deleted for poking hot-buttons like race, gender, religion and politics, or addressing subjects of dubious legality (leave comments about drugs, software piracy and other illegal exploits at the door).
ps: i deleted my last post since it is still unclear what you wanted to say.I though you are talking to me since you said "feel another warning ....." .if you would talk aboutyourself in third person i think correct woudl be "feels another warning...".English is complicated :)

You really are confusing me and urself now. but as its 6pm in the UK, I am off home, so c u on monday.
and try meeting some people with piercings over the weekend, and find out how pleasurable it could be.
< it has nothing to do with getting, but all about "giving">

Actually, I've heard horror stories of irreversible nerve damage caused by piercings in places where you wouldn't want irreversible nerve damage. I try to keep my piercings to places where nerve damage isn't such a terrifying idea...
"OMG! My earlobe/navel is numb!" Just not that scary, is it? ;) (Not sure about the tongue, but I've never heard of someone suffering nerve damage from a tongue piercing... the tissue inside the human mouth heals incredibly quickly, so that might be part of the reason.)

Customer Relations Management, I think...
the point of this revelation is that i also hold right now and have held in the past senior positions at very very conservative organisations. i've been with my present company (employing 12,000 people) for 2 years - leaving soon though - and they have got to be the most corporate, stick in the mud organisation i have ever come across. this is where fun goes to die.
yet somehow i have always got away with it - in fact i would say that my "unique" appearance even works in my favour quite often. i find this interesting, and for my own amusement i have even deliberately seen how far i can push the boundaries on occasion. it appears that once you are accepted as being "odd" in your appearance but really good at your job you will command respect regardless.
i truly believe that personality, excellent work ethics and a good reputation can overcome obstacles regarding individuality and i will never "conform" just for a job. i'm probably in the minority here, but this has been my experience my entire working life.
yikes, i really went off just then. slinking back to my corner....
For the not-so-delicate I have to ask: Adoration or mutilation? Is it creative expression or simple attention getting?
I think there are some people that like to make others feel uncomfortable. I get a sense with the people who display visually loud, scary and even vulgar piercings, they do it to gain attention by repulsing. It certainly does not attract me... it makes me feel queasy.
Let's face it, some piercings are meant to look mean and tough. Not friendly and wholesome.
I am not saying that 'mean and tough' is not an art form but...
I myself don't think the 'mean look' is the way to go for choosing a public appearance. It comes with consequences. It will just make everyday relationships harder. To each their own. IMHO LOL
