In the context of modern day it really depends. Although some classify piercings as "punk" if you know well enough you can differentiate between individuals. There are a growing number of "fully sik kunts", their female counterparts and metro boys and "popular" girls who have been getting piercings as of late for whatever reason.
Being part of the local metal scene where I live, a lot of guys have piercings - nose rings, eyebrow piercings, cartilage piercings, stretched ears etc. Personally I'm not a fan of stretched ears but nose rings and cartilage can look quite nice on some guys.
