    Mine are pierced twice in the left and once in the right. I guess that makes me an asymmetrical rebel

    My Dad would not allow me to have pierced ears when I was growing up. He said only loose women had pierced ears. Got married at 18 and 3 days I became a loose woman. LOL

    Mine are not pierced, but only b/c of reactions to the metal, even gold. I can only wear my wedding ring b/c I have it lined w/ rhodium. I was in my mid 30's when I found out about rhodium and already used to not wearing jewelry so didn't see the point in trying again.

    yep, pierced twice. My sister did one of them the first time while her friend held me down (I wasn't wanting it pierced, I was 6) and Mom came in before the deed was completed. So I had 1 pierced that grew back. In about 3 years, I wanted mine pierced so my sister (who is only 4 yrs older than me by the way) did the old needle and thread trick. She got both of them done before Mom came in. When I was about 35 I got them both pierced and wear diamond studs all them time in the top holes. No more for me, afraid I'll start leaking

    Yup...twice here too! First time...1967...doctors office. My dad was NOT happy. I thought I could hide it with my long hair, but he noticed at the dinner table! "Are those holes in your head?" LOL....then a few years later got the second ones done....his response?...."Weren't two holes enough!"

    I actually pierced mine myself when I was 13. My parents wouldn't let me have pierced ears. I had long hair, so I could hide my holes. The stupid things kids do. I stopped wearing earrings over 30 years ago, and the holes are pretty much closed up now.

    How funny what people were told back in the 60's. My parents said only Catholics and gypsies had their ears pierced, we were Lutherans so no piercing. They never relented. So when I got married and moved to So. Cal. my husband was over seas so I was bored and went and got my ears pierced. This was in 1973. A few years later my dad wanted to get my mom some diamond earrings. She said she was afraid she would lose one unless her ears were pierced because she was forever losing one earring with the clip ons. So off they went and had her ears pierced and for her next birthday she was given a beautiful pair of diamond earrings. My SIL refuses to have her ears pierced. She said she never felt the need.

    I got mine done in early '60's by my cousin. Close pin, needle, ice, thread. Boy, did I have problems! My lobs are thick, so when I tried to wear studs, the posts just weren't long enough, so the lob swelled up. One time they got so, so bad. Anyway, I found "Simply Whispers" that sells 'hyperallergenic" earrings, wires, posts, necklaces, etc. There is no nickel in any, so I can't wear the cheap stuff. Can wear gold & silver too. When I see some cute cheap earrings, I just put the dangle on a hyperallergenic wire. I can remember my Mam Maw wearing long, dangley ones. Also can buy the wires at Michael's, Hobby Lobby, etc. I've made lots, so keep myself, my DGDs & my DD well supplied. All DGDs are pierced but 1 & she got 'er done just little while ago (she's 14).

And for that reason I did not. My sisters did, my sisters daughters did, my MOTHER did, but I am the only one in the family with virgin ears. Even my granddaughter has three holes in her "head"! each side!!!! I keep telling her that her brains are going to seep out! She doesn't believe. Who ever doesn't believe their own grandmother. I'm 76 and I could have them pierced - I CAN'T STAND PAIN!!!!!!! Edie

    Another perfectly good reason for not getting your ears pierced. I, too, am Lutheran. So besides my grandma's pulled lobes and my religion, not to mention my fear of pain, I won't get them pierced. And another thing, I was a thumb sucker when I was little and some people have their blankies, I had my left ear. Sucked my right thumb and pulled my left ear. So now one ear lobe is longer than the other.......I still have virgin ears, but I keep my hair covered over my ears. This sounds so ridiculous, doesn't it? It's true. And I will continue to be a Lutheran - Missouri Synod, yet!!!! Edie

    Mine are pierced and I pretty much wear the same earrings all the time. I sleep in them and only take them out occasionally to clean them. They have been pierced for years and years.

    My mom got my ears pierced for me at 6 months old LOL ... I haven't worn any earrings for the last 14 years ... because my parrot would swoop down and POP out it comes! I learned really quick - no jewellry when you own a parrot ... OR remember to take it off all the time ... much easier to not wear it.

    The holes have never closed over either.

    Same here. I tried getting the ear repierced but it didn't "take" and I just gave up. Earrings are the only jewelry I've ever really enjoyed wearing and I have some gorgeous ones so it really makes me sad. I didn't get my ears pierced until I was in my 40's and I always detested the clips and screw ons so rarely ever wore those.

    I had mine done with a needle and ice cube when I was 18. A nurse did it...my aunt loaned me her good earrings for 30 days. When my dad saw me, he told me I was an idiot. (His word.) Fast forward to my son being out on his own and getting his tongue pierced. My husband saw it while we were eating at a restaurant and said, "You idiot." WELL.
    I told my son the story of my ear piercing...so history does repeat itself!

    Yep, two in each year. I bought myself a pair of gorgeous diamond stud earrings when I turned 70. I thought I deserved it. I remember seeing Shirley McClaine in a movie and she had three diamond studs all staggered sizes in each ear and that's what I wanted, but never got the third hole. So I wear two staggered sizes of diamond studs, but sometimes I wear small gold hoop earrings with teeny tiny diamonds that my husband bought me for Christmas years ago and I love those.

    Two holes here, the top holes have the small diamond studs my son wore. He wore one in his left ear only, after he passed in 2001 I have been wearing them all the time.
    Can only wear the piercing studs because of allergies. If I wear regular ones the holes get messed up from one day wearing them.
    My niece pierced mine when SHE was a teenager. Ice cube and needle at her house.

    I have three in each year...not sure what that says about me, lol. I wear gold hoops in graduated sizes, sometimes swapping out the first set for special occasions. I sleep with them all and never give them a thought.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.
