    Wish I Could

    I had my ears pierced a few times when I was younger. Each and every time they would get badly infected. My mom tried everything from different kinds of metals to buying more expensive earrings. I even had an aunt who went and bought me real ruby and diamond earrings. I will...

    Tried. Failed. Twice.

    First time I tried to pierce my ears, I was too young, too immature to take good care of them.  They got infected and I had to let them close.Second time I tried to pierce my ears, I was (unknown to me) going into a severe illness that messed with my immune system.  So I had to...

    Needles And I Don'T Get Along...

    ...and I never will.If they want to do it for me when they're getting ready to put me in a hole at St. Joe's to make me look pretty, I won't know the difference. I got too many vaccinations and booster shots when I was little to have any desire to put two more holes in my ears...

    My Mom and I Argue About That

    When I was six my mom and I were walking down the street talking about how I did NOT want to get my ears pierced because I thought it would hurt. My mom tried to convince me otherwise by pinching my arm. Only, she doesn't seem to realize how STRONG she is. It hurt- like, a LOT...

    I want them done. I had it

    once done when I was 13. It closed up. Got infected and crusty. Don't think I regularly cleaned it enough. I didn't wait until I wore the studs given for the time period and took them out and put others in...so I guess there is that too. You aren't supposed to take them out. I...

    Ironic

    I've never gotten my ears pierced. I don't have much of a desire to. I think earrings are cute and all, but maybe just not for me. I'm kind of nervous about the pain of it...the thought of something going into my body to make a hole. And its really ironic to think of it that...

    Ok. I don't mean to be a moron.

    I admit, I am up in years. I never liked being shoved in a direction opposite of who I am, that's why I told someone off, I know what it's like... I know what I need for me... So I do unto others... YOU know the rest....

    I don't think I ever will have them pierced.

    I'm the type of girl who is not really into body decorations or jewelry of any kind. I especially don't care for rings, I don't know why.

    Well I Did Once.

    Back some number of year's ago while my wife was working I got bored and went to the mall to just walk around and window shop. I was walking down the center of the mall and passed this one booth that did free ear piercing if you bought their ring's or stud's and I got a wild hair...

    Never Have And Never Will

    it isn't even about the potential pain, I just don't like the idea of fish hook like things hanging from my ear lobes. It does not make me any less feminine than those who wear jewelry at least not in my eyes.to each their own I suppose.

    Some Men Do

    I am just not one of them. I do have to confess though to wearing a clip on for a while when I was 15 as a joke just to get a reaction out of my grandfather.

    What's very strange is

    that I have a navel piercing and two cartilage piercings. I have never really wanted to get my earlobes pierced and I don't know why. It's not that I see it as painful, I just think I could use my money on something of more use.

    And I Never Have

    I've never had my ears pierced. Ever. I was strong throughout school and I didn't give into peer pressure...and believe me, it was there. I just don't see the need for it TBH. I see some people with lovely earrings and I look at them and appreciate them but I still don't want...

    I Would Faint.

    I got my ears pierced as a baby.  I don't remember that, but my holes closed up by the time I was old enough for school.  The next time I got my ears pierced by an eight year old, I was nine, with a dirty earring on a bed.  OUCH!  And can you say, infection...

    I Had Them Pierced Twice :

    The first time I got my ears pierced, I had them done at the doctor. I never really took care of them and I never twisted them every night. And when I tried to take them out, the back of the earring in my left ear got stuck in my ear. It was disgusting. So I went and got it...

    Not Into That Mutilation

    Not much to tell. It just always seemed wrong to me. Poke holes in my earlobes? No, thank you. Thanks anyway. You go ahead. I'll wear some really cool old clip-ons once in a while. And when I don't wear any, I won't have those stupid-looking little holes. I like virgin...
