Ha, not really.

After signing three pages of legalese (more documents than required to buy a house), they popped the earrings into something akin to a stapler and it was done in a flash. I think they were tickled with some of the questions I asked being such a novice and all.

Actually, Ruthio, your avatar was a mark put on the "pro" side when making my decision. I do like the way yours looked.

Strange thing though, I still look 57 .

The stupidest thing I did in this process was make mention of this idea to some friends who have since given me an insufferable amount of grief for waiting so long - and who now refer to me as "The Piercing Virgin".

I like my ears, but I need new friends.

Re: To Pierce, or Not to Pierce: That is the Question

I'm the only person I know who had their ears pierced twice and each time my ears swelled up and I had to let them heal over. It's annoying because there are lovely earrings for pierced ears.

Alas I have given up now and I pay a fortune for clip ons.

Re: To Pierce, or Not to Pierce: That is the Question

I've got 3 holes in each ear.

First ones were done when I was about 18, second ones...mid 20's I think, and the third ones were done spur of the moment when I went with someone else who was having their first ones done and they got a bit nervous, so I had mine done first so they could see exactly what happened.

I have since let the third holes close as they are on a thin part of the lobe and earrings were uncomfortable to wear there.

I have studs in 1 pair of holes and hoops in the other. I very rarely change them (for rarely read never) and hardly ever take them out.

Had sleepers in for first 6 weeks until healed also known as starter earrings. These types of earrings are sturdy and gentle enough to remain comfortable in your ear for long periods of time, as these earrings must remain in your ear until the piercing heals. Because you have to wear these earrings while you sleep, they have earned the nickname “sleeper earrings.”

Ow.

It's time to change them for the first time, but can't get the backs off the blasted things. Apparently this is common in new piercings.

My daughter is (rightly) laughing at me.

Pliers are next.
