    Oh my God, what did your parents say? In Germany nobody would ever pierce or tattoo a teenager without parental permission.
    LOL Totally different here, most of my friends have got piercings abd tattos and they're underage or they got them done when they were.

    And my parents were fine, why wouldn't they be? It doesn't really affect them or really harm me (other than the needle lol!)? :L

    I just had to come in to back up OP because I cannot believe the stupidity of this comment. OP is just putting forward an idea that there may be a correlation between tattoos, smoking and promiscuity. Yes he is generalising but that is fine. It is a resonable comment that americans are on average fatter than from other parts of the world, that there are more ginger people in scotland than the rest of the world, that more haggis is eaten in scotland than England. There is nothing wrong with making generalised comments
    You have altered the sentences I wrote though.
    The title of the thread is 'people who smoke + have tattoos/piercings are most promiscuous'

    which is no less of a stupid comment than the ones I made.

    The choices one makes about their health and their appearance doesnt really correlate to their sex lives. I have been deeply involved with punk rock since my preteens, which is full of people fitting the stereotype of 'promiscuous tattooed smoker', yet I have only had sex a handful of occasions, and am generally not bothered about scoring with the opposite sex in the slightest.

    I altered the sentences you wrote to the equvilent sentence to this thread, so you can see how a generalised comment is not stupid.

    The title is less stupid because it is a general comment. 'people who smoke + have tattoos/piercings are most promiscuous' =/= everybody who smokes and has tattoos are always promiscuous, he is just saying there may be a link. I don't no how much of a link there is but if we looked at some statistical evidence I think there could be some correlation there.

    The title of the thread is implying that pierced, tattooed smokers are the most promiscuous, er, group in society. the clue is in the word 'MOST'. not 'more,' MOST.

    for argument's sake, let's assume that tattooed, pierced smokers constitute a minority of the population. I think it would be safe to assume that there are less people fitting the above criteria than, for want of a better word, 'normal' people. What about people that seem to devote themselves to becoming more appealing to the opposite sex? People that go to the gym, wear expensive perfume and designer labels and have fashionable haircuts, that aren't in long-term relationships. Your typical clubber. They might choose to have a few tattoos/piercings, they might smoke. These things are not uncommon in society. Who's to say that this type of person is any less promiscuous than the aforementioned? Given that there seems to be an endless supply of this type of person in every town centre on a friday night, and that I'm not seeing heavily tattooed/pierced people getting off with each other every time I'm in a club, I put it to you that THIS type of person could well be 'MOST' promiscuous.

    OP how ignorant can you get, is there any point of this thread, if you're actually being serious...

    Firstly some people wear piercings for religious reasons, take Asians who have nose rings for e.g. and African tribes who extend their ear lobes, even Aztecs used to get extended ear lobes and piercings.

    Secondly, I think piercings and tattoos are quite significantly depending on different sub-cultures but can pretty much be for any type of person. E.g. grungy/ punk/ gothic/ some indie people but also mods/ somewhat chavvy/ streetwise/ urban people. Despite what music people listen to and what clothes they wear, it is pretty much signifying a similar thing especially in youth, exploring oneself.

    Rnb, hiphop, grime etc music like heavy metal, punk, electronica etc can still be portraying a similar feeling of sex, drugs, rock and roll or having a good ****ing time and trying to be different from the crowd. So to conclude piercings and tattoos are a way of expressing oneself, you won't know what the person is like unless you actually KNOW them ffs. Talk about judging people by the ****ing cover...
