Why is it that many satanists feel they must dress in black clothing and have mass amount of earings and such in their bodies.I know and understand we all have our own perception of what is attractive but the "gothic" style seems to be of great social importance to many satanist.For example I often choose to wear darker blue jeans a black shirt and a silver pentagram around my neck.I often hear I dress to "old fashoned" for a satainst simply because I keep a neat and clean appearance.Satanist are supposed to judge people on actions and not appearances.I suppose in short im saying just because I tuck my shirt in and wear a belt doesent make me any less of a satanist.

How many Church of Satan members have you met in person?

Judging by your words, I'd dare say next to none. I don't know that I have met a group of folks that are more meticulous and well groomed in their appearances... regardless of what style of clothing they choose for themselves. Aesthetics are a powerful tool for a Satanist, and it sounds to me like the people who are giving you their opinion on the matter are a far cry from the real thing.

The first thing a person observes about you is how you've chosen to present yourself by how you look. It's only natural to form an immediate opinion based on that bit of information, therefore it's possible to judge someone accurately by what they have chosen to put out there by their clothing.

Satanism is a religion. Not a dress code.

If a Satanist wants to dress in black and have "mass amount of earings and such in their bodies" then that's based on their desires.

I don't mean to expose what you really look like but what the heck.

Mine are grey. Also, I don't do that fruity tucking-into-the-boots shit.

But, I do wear an orange hard hat.

Is that Satanic?

Yes.

Everyone knows that Satanists love Halloween.

Orange hard hats look like pumpkins.

You are in the clear.

Good, my fragile ego would have collapsed if someone hadn't been along to validate me.

This is an image of me at an event. I always dress to impress, especially the ladies.

Although I am not the snappiest dresser in the world, I can say that I dress in a decent manner. Appearances are important to some degree when interacting with others, but there's a point where all the glamor in the world can't carry your impression for you.

Some days I feel like wearing those old holey jeans with that worn out tee shirt. Aesthetics are part of Satanism. This does not mean there is one aesthetic that is more Satanic than any other. Just be aware of your visual effect on other people. The reactions you get can tell a lot about the people you meet.

Japanese people always ask me for directions when I'm out and about. Maybe I them of their grandfathers or something.

First impression are the most important. Whether it's a job interview, interviewing someone for a job or a date.

If you look like a slob you'll be treated like one.
