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 let them close again.
Third time may be the charm, but I'm not pushing my luck! My ears can STAY un-pierced for the foreseeable future.
