I've never had the lobes of my ears pierced and a lot of people find this quite bizarre, especially girls my age. It must have been a 90's kid trend to get your ears pierced as close to the age of 4 or 5 as possible, as almost every week throughout my primary school years another girl would parade into the classroom with a sparkly pair of jewels on either side of her face.
Then it got to the point when boys took to having one ear pierced - most definitely the left ear for some reason(!) - and retail got experimental and competitive with a vast array of glistening, oversized and brightly coloured earrings appearing in shop windows.
I however, was always too wimpy and probably too lazy to go out to 'Claire's' and go through the pain, although now I realise it's not as torturous as I once thought - to get an arguably pointless piercing. Occasionally, you'd catch me with stick on star-shaped 'earrings' and clip-on's were always a lot of fun but only last year did I get my first piercing.
I'd always feared my ears stuck out too much to get earrings or that they simply wouldn't suit me, so I opted for the slightly different and debatably more subtle upper-ear cartilage piercing. Undoubtedly more painful, but in my opinion fairly interesting without being too 'out-there'.
I managed to bag myself a set of ten 'mix and match' studs from Topshop for £3.50 (absolutely bargain) so I've been trying out different sizes and seeing what I can and can't pull off, so keep a look at for some possibly odd ear wear!
