    What about clavicles? Those are my favorite.

     

    Oh crap, I just read that it has to be out of the way. =(

    I really like nape piercings. I think the back dimple ones would bother me way too much. Thats an area thats constantly being moved and stretched.

    I also really like these. Idk if that would be too noticable though.

    Have you asked your piercer what site is the least likely to reject? My best friend had her sternum done in three spot and two rejected badly, but she has tons of body piercings and those are the only ones to ever reject. I went back with her to try to get one redone and the guy said it’s really common in that space to reject.

    I would say nape, but TBH I would stay away from dermals… the risk of rejection and infection is too high for my tastes (I have 22 piercings!)

    I voted to not get anything, not because I’m against them or dislike them.. I actually have had my fair share of somewhat unusual piercings.  anyway, I voted no, because I’ve noticed with me at least, I get so excited to get a new piercing and it has all this buildup and then I get it and I’m like..  Yeap…. There it is.  And then by the time it finally heals, I’m over it and don’t really care one way or the other whether or not I have the piercing and typically end up taking it out.

    @HonoraryNerd:  I’ve never seen any there before. They look really neat. I dont think they’d look like vampire bite if there was only 2. Maybe if they were down a bit lower it would though. Haha.

    @frommisstomrs.:  One of my friends is like that. I dont even know anymore how many piercings she’s had. I’m the opposite, I’ve had all of mine for years. I had my lip pierced for 6 years, I finally had to take it out because of work. And I had my nose pierced for 8 years. I just took it out last week, and it only happened beause I lost every single one of my nose rings. Otherwise I probably would have left it in for another 8 years.

    @HonoraryNerd:  worked in a piercing shop for 5 years, very rarely saw one heal up nicely, tried 2 myself and neither took after a year. So long as you go into it knowing its a short term peircing, & will leave a small scar i say get it where you’d like. I personally wouldn’t go through the hasstle again, too many fun places in the inner ear to play around with that actually heal for me to be tempted by surface peircings again lol.

    Get your septum done, you can just flip it up for work. 🙂 

    It’s my favorite of all of mine. Haha

    I am voting no because dermals just straight up freak me out. All surface piercings give me the heebies. I only have my ears, nose, and monroe done and I have toyed with the idea of getting another piercing but then I realized, eh, I am 23 now and in a few years I feel like it will be time to take out at least one of my piercings so it would be kinda pointless to get another one.

    But having any kind of piercings on your like torso body area just screams bad idea to me. I get anything and everything caught on piercings, rings, necklaces, jackets, you name it, I get shit caught in it. I can’t image the feeling of getting back dimples pierced and you happen to get it caught in the sheets at night and roll over and *RIIIIPPPP!* Bloody painful mess in bed. (and you’re not on your period, haha)
