To each his/her own, I suppose.
Whatever people want to do with their own bodies is their own business.
However, I do agree that it is very digusting and distracting to see someone constantly messing with their pierced tongue. Bleck. I find it practically impossible to carry on a conversation with someone who is doing that.
My personal thoughts on it: I would NEVER pierce anything that isn't already pierced, and that is my ear lobes. I think it is unattractive, distracting and makes my stomache hurt to even think about it.
But, I have a couple tattoos, and I know there are a lot of people that don't agree with that, either.

"We are raised to honor all the wrong explorers and discoverers - thieves planting flags, murderers carrying crosses. Let us at last praise the colonizers of dreams."- P.S. Beagle
"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king." - J.R.R. Tolkien
