    It is OK, I can take it (still creeps me out...).

    Tongue-splitting.

    I saw someone on TV who had split their tongue down the middle, forming two tentacle-like tongues which essentially moved independently.
    It was so disturbing when I saw it, I involuntarily jumped up on the couch and squealed like a little girl.

    I have to admit to being hypocritical about piercings. I like women with earrings but not men with earrings. Some other piercings look good on some women but not on others. The only piercings men should have are accidental ones involving power tools.

    Aww come on! Now I have that image in my head. Owww.
    I have seen that at the reptiles shows. Don't like it.
    The only piercings I got were from nails when I worked construction and I didn't like that very much either...

    I wonder if you could divide it into say four sections, maybe more, and each tip could carry a little bell...or does that sort of thing already exist.
    Maybe little hooks to grab food.
    Think about that before you go to sleep.

    Do nuns give you the creeps too?

    Women have been piercing their earlobes for thousands of years, so I'm used to it. Besides, I rather like earrings, and the clip-on versions, in general, just aren't as nice.
    I don't know where you live, but in the USA I've never seen a nun with a piercing; they don't wear jewelry of any kind. They're supposed to dress as plainly as possible--no makeup either.

    I think he was referring to Nun's being almost full-body covered, much like women in Burkas. I could be mistaken though

    The nun in the Canterbury Tales has a pleated wimple. I wonder if pleated burqas are allowed.

    What does jewelry or ear punching have to do with anything? We are talking about Burkas here. I asked Sculptor if nuns creep him out too. That's a fairly simple question. Below are a few pictures of a nuns for your edification:

    Are you telling me you have never seen a nun in her habit?

    Someone posted a comment in the middle of this thread, saying that he can't stand to see piercings, even the piercings that many Western women have in their earlobes, in order to wear earrings that are larger and more elaborate than clip-ons.
    I can't speak for him, but nuns certainly don't creep me out. Frankly, I'm not sure that I've ever actually met one, but I've seen them walking down the street, and of course in movies. They don't bother me.

    I never attended a Catholic school, so I've never had the experience of a nun hitting my fingers with her pointer. That's a really crappy thing to do to a musician, so I might have pounded the "holy shit" out of her.
    I think you're answering somebody else's question. But sure, I've seen nuns in full regalia. My high school girlfriend was Catholic (no, that didn't last very long), so I've been inside a couple of Catholic churches.
