- Why do you want to pierce your ears, nose and tongue?
- I think "..........to have your ears............tongue pierced?" is better, right?

Thanks a lot!

    I personally would say "get them pierced", not "have them pierced", but I'm not going to get into reasons why, as there are many other threads on the difference between "I have" and "I have got" :)

    I am guessing that the difference lies in whether you are the one who's doing the piercing or not (either way, it's going to hurt, that's for sure :eek:)

    This is like when people go "you cut your hair!" "Well, someone cut it for me, but yea."

    Earlobe piercings don't hurt but I digress.
