    I think thats a good idea. I had my ears pierced when I was around 1, so I never had the option to think about it lol. I had 8 ear piercings when I was in college, but now only wear the first hole. Youll love having your ears pieced, it really doesnt hurt.

    I did the same thing at the beginning of this month. I also did mine at a tatoo parlor and it was a great experience. The piercer was very careful and four weeks later I have had no sign of infection. Keep up with the salt soaking because it really does make them heal faster.

    I just had my ears pierced three weeks ago at age 24.  I went to a legitimate piercing studio because I wanted it done with sterile technique and a sharp needle would hurt less than a gun.  I almost fainted in the studio, I had to sit down.  It hurt A LOT more than I expected, but the pain is over immediately, maybe half a second.  The needle hurts a lot going through, but once it was in, I couldn’t feel it at all anymore.  That said, I still can’t sleep on my side without the equivalent of a hemorrhoid pillow for my ear.

    I clean them twice a day, they are on and off itchy the first few weeks, but it doesn’t hurt to clean and rotate them, except maybe it feels like picking off a small scab for the first couple days.

    I am SO EXCITED about being able to wear pretty earrings finally!!!  I think I’m going to rent really really nice diamond earrings for my wedding day.  That said, I would never have anything pierced ever again.

    I did it!  I had my ears pierced when I was younger but let them grow shut.  But I really wanted to be able to wear earrings on my wedding day, and hadn’t had ANY luck finding nice clip ons, so I sucked it up and went to Clarie’s in the mall and them pierced.  (I’m 30 years old!)  It hurt for a split second and that’s it.
