I find it screamingly funny myself, though it reminds me of an uncomfortable visit
with my brother - my son had pierced his ear and had a small earring on.  Note that
my son was in college by then.  My brother, an old WW2 veteran, was not pleased when
he eventually noticed this and went up to my son with (half formed) intentions of
removing the earring.  That did not happen, thank heaven, but there was some heated
discussion of men wearing earrings and body piercing in general.  The only generally
approved piercings appeared to be women, for earrings, one pierce per ear!

Some lovely girls have (IMHO) rather frightful piercings and tattoos - I wonder how
that'll all work out at age 65 or so. Or for getting a job in a professional field. 
Did you see that email going around of  tattoo/piercing  pics, "Why can't I get a
job?" AMAZING!  8C

... grateful that my daughter did not get a nose ring! ....
