well i dont really have any problems with piercings, to me they look somewhat cool even though I myself wont get one... but still i dont see a reason to have to wear them in school. Everyone wants to be seen in their own way and have their own style but if u need a piercing to aid you in that then theres a problem

I think facial piercings should be banned to certain standard because sometimes students get carried away and get piercings that are quite disturbing. If the piercing doesn't distract anyone or isn't positioned in a disturbing place than it shouldn't be an issue to have unless students abuse these privellage by getting piercings all over their face.

i agree with manuella, to put it simply... if it doesnt disturb anyone and its not something thats very distracting then its okay to wear it

Side: yes

no because facial piercings have nothing to do with school. point blank period. so why does it matter. i have nothing else to say so i close my case

They might have nothing to do with school, but if you have some gross piercings on your face and you go to school you will draw attention to yourself and disrupt people in your classes who are willing to learn so it goes both ways.

Depending on the piercing and the school. Elementary school or middle school I'd say no to all except ears. However, high school there should be less limits. I don't think tongue piercings should be banned. They're not dangling anywhere and you can't even see them unless they're being flashed around. Belly button rings are basically the same. Things like nipple or genital piercings wouldn't be noticed anyway. If it was something that posed a hazard to the student's health or a safety risk, say exceptionally long earrings or a belly button ring that can get caught on the desk, I'd say no.

i dont think body piercings should be banned because it doesnt cause a distraction in class... it doesnt affect the school in any way if people have facial piercings

Side: No

think of it this way, if you have piercings all over your face it will cause a distraction and it does affect the school because instead of students learning in class they are staring at facial piercings, which causes grades to drop.

I dont think that piercings should be banned from school because they are not bothering anybody. People might ask where you got it and if it hurt but thats it. It's not really disturbing the class.

I really don't care if people have facial piercings, some of them actually look pretty cool. As long as people don't get carried away and fill their whole face with piercings I'm okay with it.

NO THEY SHOUDLNT BE BANNED. IF A PERSON WANTS TO GET ONE OR TWO OR MORE THEN LET'EM IT ISNT YOUR PROBLEM AND IT ISNT YOUR BODY EITHER. THESE TEACHERS AND FACULITY AND SUCH TRY SO HARD TO CONTROL OUR LIVES AND OUR BODIES THAT ITS RIDICULOUS. THEY SAY WE CANT WEAR THEM BUT SOME PEOPLE HAVE 10 HOLES IN EACH EAR EVEN SOME TEACHERS BUT WE CANT HAVE FACIAL PIERCINGS. THE EARS ARE JUST AS VISIBLE AS THE FACE, AND SOMETIMES THE EARS CAN BE MORE DISTRACTING THAN ANYTHING ELSE. I HAVE 5 FACIAL PEIRCINGS INCLUDING THE EARS AND I WEAR THEM AT WORK AND I GET NO COMPLAINTS EITHER. IF WE WANT TO GET A PIERCING THEN LET US, CAUSE SOME DID IT TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES AND THATS ALL WE WANT. SOME ARENT EVEN NOTICABLE. BUT THEY SHOULDNT BE BANNED CAUSE ITS POINTLESS. AND ETC.........

Side: No
