About This Quiz

Someone once said that the eyes are the window to the soul.  Do you know what else is like a window?  A large gauge piercing!  You can see right through those things.  The fact is, we have a lot of outward expressions of our inner selves.  Not everything we share about who we are comes from verbal communication.  For instance, if we know you like to wear Spider-Man shirts all the time, we can assume you're a fan of Marvel comics and movies.  If you have a tattoo of a pit bull on your shoulder, it's likely you're a dog lover.  If you wear a ring on a certain finger, most people assume you're married.  It's not incredibly scientific in any way, it's just making use of little visual signs that help us understand the people around us.  

Now suppose we didn't have those visual signs. If all we have is what you can tell us about something like piercings, is it possible we can guess something as specific as the color of your eyes?  If you tell us your thoughts on surface vs. industrial, or ear vs. nose, could we figure out if you have blue eyes or hazel? Well, we're going to try. Give us some insight into your piercing preferences and we'll land on the eye color that fits.  Take the quiz and see!
