Goth Challenge- How strangers react to my clothes, and how I react to their reactions

I get a wide range of reactions to how I look. Some pleasant, some not. My clothes themselves are likely not to the main issue. I live in NY, and not so far from the city that people have never heard of goth or punk. Instead, the reaction is more about my hair (or lack thereof at times) and piercings.

I have a lot of metal in my face and I like shaving my head from time to time.That means I get a lot of dirty looks and odd stares and a lot of random people coming up to me and gushing about how great it is. 
Generally I just ignore people, if someone says something nice I thank them, but mostly I just kinda live in my own head and ignore people.
