Ok, so I've pierced my ears.....again!
In case you're wondering, I have a total of 10 piercings, 5 in each ear.
Yes, those are my real ears.
Why so many? I say, why not! I got my first piercings right before 2nd grade. I was so excited about it. :) I had wanted to get my ears pierced for about a year when I finally got them done.
Now, how the holes grew and multiplied, didn't start until I was a freshman in college. I had asked my RA (who happened to be my next door neighbor, good friend, and only one in at the time I knew would have what I wanted) for a safety pin or a needle. Didn't explain why I needed it, just needed to borrow it for a short while.
About 1/2 an hour later I had returned it to her with 4 new piercings in my ear lobes.
She freaked out a bit b/c she's a bit squeamish about needles, piercings, blood and that sort of thing. Said I could keep the safety pin.
Eventually I had gotten 10 piercings in my ears, but ended up taking out two a little too early and they closed up.
At one point I even had my nose pierced as well but things didn't work out the way I wanted (1st one was a fish hook and I ended playing with the stud while I slept and the 2nd time I took the nose ring out a little too early).
I'm thinking of getting my nose pierced again. And maybe my tongue. But I don't know. I think if I do get either or both pierced, they'll get pierced a bit down the road.
