Second ear piercing?

MintMint Posts: 1,143Registered Users Curl Neophyte
I see the look sometimes and I'm thinking of doing it for a change.

I only have one piercing in each ear. I think I look best in gold (I have red hair) hoop earrings (small to medium size, not huge) and I like them a lot. When shopping, I'm tempted by pretty, colorful stud earrings in the casual jewelry sections, and I have cute studs that are small gold spheres. I would either wear two studs or a hoop on the first hole and a stud on the second if I decided to go through with it. Also, I would pierce my ears with a home kit like I did with my first holes.

What does everyone think of this trend?

Thanks!! :)

    I have to admit, I love it, and have loved it for a long time. But I'm biased because I have 4 holes in each ear. :D

    If it's a trend, it's been around an awful long time. I pierced second holes in my ears when I was in 7th grade...which would have been around 1975. Lots of people have multiple holes going all up the ear, but I've stuck with only 2 holes in each lobe. I only rarely wear earrings in the second holes anymore, but they are there in case I want to.

    I like the look. I have three holes in each ear and have considered more. I say go for it! It really gives you lots of options and an excuse to go shopping for more earrings! :D

    I say if you like it go for it, I also have 3 holes on each side, two on the bottom and one on the top perfect for a cute little loop. I got mine done 10 years ago. :oops:

    I have no tattoos but even I have 2 holes in one ear and 3 in the other. :lol:

    I've always liked the look and have had mine pierced this way for over 20 years. I usually wear studs in the more upper holes and drops/hoops in the lowest hole.

    No more PJ tendencies. Tigi Curls Rock Curl Amplifier is the best thing to make my curls rock all day! Next best are KCCC and Re:Coil +HE TT Gel.

    I had second holes put in my ears a year after the first ones were done. They kept getting infected. So now I only use the first ones. The second ones are still visible but have closed up, so they're more of a scar now.

    They can look good, but it depends on the person IMO.
    Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.

    That's what I was thinking, lol. Double piercings aren't a big deal, if you want them go for it. I had a triple piercing in one ear for maybe 10 years (I did the top two myself, with a sewing needle, because my parents wouldn't let me get it done. :shock: :lol: ), but eventually I stopped wearing jewelry in them and they closed up. Now I just have one in each lobe... along with a few cartilege piercings :lol: ...
