Aloha Friday: Beauty comes with pain




My Question:

At what age was your ears pierced? And who pierced it?

******************************************

My ears were pierced when I was either 12 or 13. I was in the orphanage and most of the girls were piercing their ears. I did not wish mine to be done because it looked so painful and I thought surely they'll get infected and many got infected. I must admit, I hated wearing clip ons. So after all the hype died down, I asked this girl to pierce mine for me. I got the needles and disinfectant and alcohol and overcooked the needles! Everyone had to wash and etc etc and I had a piece of thread in my ears in a few minutes. I was excited. It healed well, but one of my ears is pierced lean and so I keep having problems in putting an earring in. I can't wear earrings too long either or it make my ears very tender.

  10. I was 3 years old! I went to the hair dresser to have it done. Your ears may be tender because you are allergic to the type of metal you are putting in your ears. Make sure to by hypo allergenic earrings.

  12. I was 5. The story is I started asking when I was 3. My folks told me that I could when I turned 5, thinking I'd forget about it and move on. I didn't say another word about it until they asked what I wanted for my 5th birthday. I had it done at the local mall.

    My wish was granted!

  13. I was about 10, I think. My mom took me to a jewelry store to have it done. They used the piercing gun and I was surprised at how little it hurt. Later, at around 14, I added a second hole on my own with a bug safety pin. Boy did I hear about that one ;P

  15. My mom took me to a beauty shop on my 5th b-day to get my ears pierced. I felt Soooo grown up! My ears are very sensitive and get irritated too if I wear earrings too long. They even act like they're infected. I won't gross you out with too many details, though!

  16. I was about 14 and I used those masochistic ear-piercing earrings that took a week to make the hole. Crazy.

  18. I think I was like 5 or 6 and it was a bday present. I just went to the store to have them done.

  19. I was 14, and we went to the mall. By the time I had them done they were doing it with the gun, not needles. So it didn't hurt as much.

  20. I don't know. I was a baby and my mother had my ear pierced twice in each year. Who knew that would be the fashion later on.

  21. I'm thinking about 12 at one of those places in the mall

  23. I didn't get mine pierced until I was in college (I was such a wimp) and then I had it done at one of the mall stores.
