... that I'm not the only member on this forum who wears glasses, so my question is. Would any of you consider wearing something like this?

Yes, it goes through your nose and no, there are no frames. Yikes!

Just looking at them makes my asshole pucker up... And unlike some of you that's not a good thing.

I don't wear glasses, but never in my life would I consider it. If your into the that kind of thing go for it. Whatever floats your donkey.

That's just a dangerous idea.



That's just dangerously on the line of wrong.

Well.... i don't really see much of a point in poking a hole through the bridge of your nose... It just seems kind of freaky. *shudder* Yech... i wouldn't do that. But for the people who enjoy impaling their body with shrapnel probaly wouldn't mind a bit:puke: http://www.calshop.biz/piercing.jpgEDIT: THis guy doesn't need the surgery, looks like.. Already got a nice nail through the bridge..

My mom had the lasik surgery and well she can see just fine now; 20-20.

i dont see much too wrong with that... people get the bridge of their nose pierced all the time. now, if they get hit or something and u get the f;esh of ur nose ripped off... thats a different story:thumbs:

Why would anybody wear those? Just get contacts or surgery. Maybe it's just to be unique :laughing:

I wear glases/contacts and hell f***ing NO!!! That's just dumb! What if you were to get hit in the face with those frameless glasses pierced to your nose?

i thought the same thing (painful like mad)

but it says somewhere that the lenses are held on by magnets, but still, who woud want a peice of metal in their face just for that?:laughing:

I'll stick to my contacts.. I would never consider that.

The constant feeling of your skin being tugged away from the bridge of your nose....ugh.

I might've, but it looks like the piercing actually goes through the hard part of your nose. Still looks pretty badass. Maybe if you could have it surgically done or something.

no, when they pierce that area, they pull up a bunch of skin and pierce the skin, not the bone or cartilage. so if you got it done, it would feel like you were pinching the skin on the bridge of your nose all day.

Hell no.

no it wouldn't. I have my eyebrow pierced and I don't feel a thing. My skin where the ring goes under is raised a bit, but it doesn't hurt, you don't feel it being raised (after maybe 2 days tops). I say so long as you don't see the magnet that is in your nose bridge, go for it.

I have glasses that I neglect to wear.... but I dont think that would be an option for me either.

posted by  Voda48

yeah, but thats above your eye, this piercing is right between them where there is very little skin to pierce.

posted by  starscream0

I don't have either type of piercing so I have no expertise in either, but... Don't you think those eyeglasses weigh just a bit more than a little bitty ring? I bet if you wore those for a couple of years, you'd have stretch marks on the bridge of your nose. :doh:

I dont see the point, theres other options that are much more logical. But it does look kinda cool.

Ah, something I didn't think about. Ok, now I see your point. My bad.

Here's the step-by-step: (right from the article..)

~Get pierced - an internally-threaded barbell that goes through the skin above the bridge of your nose
~Use a tabletop mill to cut the L-shaped metal pieces that screw onto the barbell
~Attach rare earth magnets to the glasses; these hold the glasses on.

**Don't get rid of the bridge pieces; they let the lenses sit on your nose and take the actual weight of the lenses**
