    The fam and I went and got our noses and ears pierced.

    Of us who got one ear and noses pierced - everyone favored the left, including two males. I got my nosed pierced and favored the right. 3 of the kids are lefties, but one right handed male still got his left ear pierced.

    I've been told that the left side is the feminine side, and the right is the masculine side. So what is this indicative with our preferred side of piercings?

    I would like to get a brow piercing - right.

    But if i ever opt for a tattoo, it will be on my left arm. Does this mean anything?

    Left = masculine

    right = feminine

    That's how it's always been, anything else is something new and incorrect

    The advent of piecings for men came about when fathers left the home. So did nose and eyebrow piercings for women btw

    This is what I initially thought, till some of friends told me that was wrong. A quick search on it reveals it is opposite, left - feminine, right - masculine.

    Here's the search.

    Well there must be a lot of fatherless folks in Africa and India. And my daughter wanted her nose pierced, and son his ear pierced and they are not fatherless. He allowed for it. Men have been getting their ears pierced at least since the 60's, and the advent of fatherless homes was homes then than it is now. Care to say where you get such information?

    It's not just a net thing, maybe it's regional?

    What you just said is the same thing I told or ask of this one guy who got his left ear pierced first, and then went on to have both done later.

    If you are a guy, left ear is gay because left is feminine.

    I wonder who or what changed it and why?


    btw - generally speaking
    - I am not saying that having a left or right ear pierced makes you gay or not, I'm talking about perception. So many people are getting pierced up now adays I can't tell who is what, when, or how. I've know straight dudes with cheeks, tongues, 'monroe' and every other kinda piercings. While they were accepted among the white men (who were deemed to be weird anyway), they weren't taken too kindly black men. Now as it becoming more popular, many hetero guys black guys are getting pierced up.

    Even tupac had his ear pierced.
    And sometimes androgynous Lenny K was once rumored to have had his penee pierced. That..... sounds like fun :em3700: :wink:
