If you like them get them. I just make a point of sitting on the idea for at least a few months. Also, most of mine relate to a life event or something of the like. Because of that I am fine with them. I avoid spontaneous ones at all cost. My sister does not and I wonder what she will think later. She is 21 and still thinks she is in high school.
As much as I like my current ones, I will probably not get anymore. May just let them fade with time. Had my ears gauged too and removed them. Only about pencil size though.
