We are constantly engaged in the act of judging people by outward symbols — clothes, appearance, visible tattoos and facial piercings. Do facial piercings change how people view you as a person and your abilities at your workplace?
Influenced by African and Asian cultures, facial and body piercings have increased in popularity since the s. Piercings are regarded as more of a taboo in the West than in the East where these traditions date back thousands of years. Research studies have shown that men with piercings are perceived as less attractive and less intelligent. There are various motivations for why men and women get piercings. The reasons can have a personal ificance or meaning to the person getting pierced.
A group of researchers from the UK, Malaysia, and Austria organized an experimental study to determine whether facial piercings influence how people are perceived. A standard female face and a standard male face was selected from a digitally created series of facial images. A new set of images was created by adding the following modifications to the standard facial images:. The group of women and men from Central Europe had a diverse mix of religious beliefs, education levels, politcal beliefs and relationship statuses.
First, the participants rated their own personality to determine levels of these personality characteristics:.
They were also asked to indicate whether they had any facial or body piercings or tattoos and the location of the piercings or tattoos. The participants then rated each of the photographs in random order on these two criteria: attractiveness and intelligence. The from the study showed that male models with facial piercings were rated as less attractive and less intelligent compared to the facial images with no piercings.
The researchers also found that men with piercings were rated more negatively than women with piercings.
Models with multiple facial piercings were rated as the least intelligent and least attractive of them all. Some judges rated piercings more highly than the others. Especially those were high on the characteristics of extraversion and openness. Those who were political liberals and sought intense experiences were also less likely to place too much importance on facial piercings.
In a strange paradox — the placement of the piercing seems to play a key role in people's perception of you. The face with just one, subtle piercing — on the ear or on an eyebrow did not add to or diminish from physical attractiveness. Facial piercings that had the least effect on judgments of intelligence and attractiveness were nose, and a combination of eye, ear, and nose.
A general stereotype attached to a person with piercings is that they are rebellious and lack seriousness. Does this mean that men should never get facial piercings? Not quite. It depends on where you get the piercings, the of piercings and your personality.
If you go overboard with facial piercings more than one or two anywhere on the face — you may come across as an attention seeker. You are less likely to be judged negatively for your facial piercings if you choose to spend your time with extraverted, liberal and open people or those who seek out new and intense experiences.
