    This has popped up in social media and I did not see a post here about it. Personally I can't believe it. It seems like a health issue and what about constructive surgery when you are tired of the look?

    I have to ask if this has been verified? You can do anything with Photoshop.

    For their sake and mine, I hope it is a photoshop. This screams of "something I'll come to severely regret 10 years from now".

    Future Mainstream: stretched labret. :p

    I found this article: "New trend in Portland": A made-up story for ad clicks, Facebook likes, or maybe just the lolz. It appears that the story is made up regarding a "new trend in portland", but that the piercings are real. I saw the original posted on Facebook, which is mentioned in this article. Of note, it's not an open hole, but clear plastic and that usually these types of piercings are opaque, but still...

    Those people are just trying to express their individuality.

    And their individual stupidity.

    I know a lot of people are gung-ho about being individuals and trying to be the newest craziest thing. I have one friend who constantly talks down about people with stupid tattoos and how tattoos are art, while she herself has some of the stupidest tattoos I've ever seen.

    But this? If this is real, this is just ridiculous. I can't imagine how uncomfortable that would be, if food falls out of it while they're eating, if saliva dribbles down their chin.

    Right, because a weird piercing automatically makes you unable to perform adequately at a decent job...?

    My understanding is that normally it is not left open like that but plugged with a plastic disk. See the link "stretched lebret" a few posts back for examples.

    These days, people don't like to hire piercings.

    It isn't because they're unqualified, but because people are stupid.

    Yeah man, I just got turned down for a job at IBM because I wasn't wearing sock garters...

    There's nothing necessarily stupid about piercings, and I don't even have any, no dog in this fight for me.

    EDIT: Oops, you're agreeing with me. Got it. :)

    More like being able to see inside someone's face like that could freak out your potential customers.

    The big ear hoops I can understand. Even though there's no way in hell I'd get one myself, I can at least see some aesthetic value in them. But these? They're kinda ****ing nasty looking.

    I've never understood the idea of piercings being bad, really.

    Same with tattoos.

    body mods do speak of the person having them to some extent, and thus depending on the job it might help or hurt their chances.

    ----------

    depends on there type of piercing and tattoo, and their location

    See? There are tons of things you can do with a couple extra holes in your head. So long as those holes aren't windows into the disgusting inner workings of your face, I'm alright with them.
