    I appreciate your responses. And now, some frivolous follow-ups.

    By the way, INTJ females don't come a dime a dozen. If you get more than 10 votes I'd be amazed. But I doubt you'd get any useful statistics. :P
    Well, I just had a random curiosity whilst using a wire wheel polisher at work today. I tend to approve of facial piercings, and the ENFP is supposed to pair well with the INTJ. I wanted to pose the question and see what transpired; I am interested in seeing the results but do not care about objectively useful stats here.

    I don't want anything else pierced but my ears, I find facial piercings distracting when trying to hold a conversation.
    Do you find regular ear piercings distracting? Have you considered stopping wearing them?

    One of the 'many' options, definitely.

    Are you associating the piercings with subcultures in general, or with specific subcultures? Seems to be general association.

    And poppy, I appreciate your precision.

    I have two piercings in each ear, though I never wear earrings. When I got them, I was still under the delusion that if I tried hard enough, I could be something I wasn't. Were it possible to remove them, I would.

    I don't find small piercings all that distracting, but I do find my gaze is attracted there, so the bigger and more noticeable it is, the more I'm consciously trying to override my natural gaze, which detracts from the conversation and is a lot of unnecessary work.

    I rarely wear earrings, they're just pierced. I mostly don't wear them because (like many people) I get tiny bumps inside my ear lobes from a reaction to the metal (yes, even with the allergy-friendly ones and sterilizing them), and I find those annoying, so I usually just wear earrings on special occasions or once every 6 weeks or so when I want to have an extra nicely dressed casual day.

    I think tattoos appeal to my imagination more than piercings. On other people they could be very interesting...so long as it's not just ye olde tribal ring around the arm, but something really aesthetically pleasing and meaningful.

    I wonder what the meaning of piercings is apart from possibly adherence to a subculture. They mostly seem to be...metal in the body...they don't seem to whisper stories to me as much. Why do you get a piercing apart from the visually pleasing/subculture/rebellion part? I suppose it could be a celebratory thing or a commemoration thing. Or an expression of self. Anyway: why?

    I agree that facial piercings can be distracting. And tattoos and skin are more symbiotic...with piercings I tend to feel that there is something off what with the metal-flesh interaction...they give me a Freudian uncanny experience.
