James Sooy and Oliver Gibson have come up with Pierced Glasses - the most minimalist eyewear since the Pince-nez glasses that clip onto your nose was invented in the 1840's.

Sometimes the light's all shining on me, other times I can barely see. Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it's been.

:P

Heck, if I were a parent I wouldn't allow it either :shock:

I think the most I'd allow is ear piercings on my daughter.. That's it! Nose piercings, belly piercings, etc - they just look out of place to me :?

JK_9 - a piercing can be removed, is that really what you want to battle with your child over? ;) I'd rather be more lenient on things that can be removed like piercings, hair color and clothes than things that are a little more permanent. Like tattoos and drugs. This is only my theory though! :D

I still think laser eye surgery would be a lot easier. And seriously, I might puke if I'm trying to talk to someone whose glasses go thru their nose. :?
The post office just released a new stamp in the shape of a clitoris but it's not selling very well because only 3% of men know how to lick it.

The important thing is that the people that would wear those deserve to get punched in the nose. The fact that they have the metal in there will just make it that much more rewarding.

I sort of get the impression that you wont be seeing these on the street just today..

But.. make the attachment ends look stylish (if there is such a thing for peircings) and some lo-IQ types will grab them...

Well, not really... But, coming from a Latin background, and seeing how many times my mother has debated with my bro and I about hair colour, it sort of sinks in ;) And I didn't know a piercing can be removed :shock: :)

That's a good point. But, I've just got a kind of feeling that.. Well, if I ever have a daughter, I want to see her as she really is - not with pink hair and an earring coming out of her nose :D Hmm... Maybe I should leave this to my future wife ;)

Deeboe - Ouch! Can you imagine that? :shock: Painful..
