To me piercings look dangerous. In my mind they represent something that invites the possibility of a harmful accident.
Consequently, rather than appearing pretty and attractive, they automatically throw me into the caution mode. I tend to want to tip toe around a person who has them, or to fear possibly doing something that would cause part of me or my attire to get caught in one of the items in the piercings and unintentionally cause the person some harm--like rip her earlobe in half because my sweater sleeve got caught in her ear ring and I accidentally ripped the ear ring away when I moved my arm away.
I think I started thinking this way when I read that rings (wedding rings and other types of rings that go on fingers) are dangerous. Rings can get caught in machinery and other things and you can lose a finger. Consequently they are a distraction that fall into the negative catagory for me. I just don't feel comfortable around them.
Piercings on the nose, tongue, or lips are a guarantee that I'd feel uncomfortable at the thought of kissing. Piercings on nipples or other parts of the body explicitely reated to having sex would be a turnoff. And I don't mean I would find the woman's body unappealing. I would just be so preoccupied with worry of possibly hurting her or myself, that I wouldn't be able to concentrate on having good sex. I would be constantly worried about possibly hurting her or myself in the process.
I realize it takes all kinds to make a world, and there probably are people out there who find piercings (and tattoos too) very attractive and even a turn on. But it works just the opposite for me.
