Does anyone not have their ears pierced? - August 2nd 2010, 11:44 PM

The title pretty much says it all! Does anyone not have their ears pierced? (Just basic lobes) and how old are you? Also do you have any desire to have it done, and if so, why haven't you had it done yet?

The thing is, I'm 19 and I haven't had it done. I haven't had any piercings or tattoos. So I've come to the assumption that I'm a little bit scared. I don't really know why, apparently it doesn't hurt. I don't think I'm afraid of the pain, I'm sure I've been through worse, and could probably pinch my ear with my nails harder than the piercing would hurt.

So I don't know what it is. I think that I might want to go ahead with getting them done. I've been thinking about it a lot recently. I know it sounds a bit silly! Such a plain, simple piercing. But it's a big deal for me as it would be my first! I just don't know if I'd go through with it! I don't think I'd sit in the chair. I've been to get it done twice in recent years, and didn't go through with it. I can't let it happen again! And if I did, I'd probably get one done and be too scared for the other one!

I think it's just because I don't know what to expect. I haven't voluntarily let myself get hurt like that before so I don't know what would happen.

Anyway! I've asked a few questions at the top, and ranted a bit. Let's see if anyone's like me!

I've had mine done before but they always got infected. I might go get them done again in the future but not really anytime soon I don't think.

Re: Does anyone not have their ears pierced? - August 3rd 2010, 12:32 AM

i have a friend that doesn't have her ears pierced, and shes 15.

i got my ears pierced while i was a baby
but a couple of years ago i got my second lobe piercing;
and i was freaking out about the pain...
but it really is just a pinch and then its over.
maybe take a friend or someone so you can hold your hand?
i held my older sisters hand when i got the second ones done

I'd more than likely be able to endure the pain and that would be fine. I just wouldn't be able to sit there and let it happen. I need to be drugged or put to sleep! :P

I had mine done when i was like 5 but they got infected or something, too long ago to remember, so that didn't last long. I've never tried getting them done again, and it hasn't really crossed my mind.

You could always watch someone else getting them done before to make yourself feel better

I got my ear done a couple years ago, two holes in one ear. The first one doesn't hurt at all imho, but the second one does kind of pinch.

i don't.

just don't like the idea of piercings. don't see why anyone would want a bit of metal through their body, it's kinda weird. :/ yeah.. i don't understand the point of it.

Re: Does anyone not have their ears pierced? - August 3rd 2010, 02:57 AM

i have two on each earlobe, and my left cartalidge, and my nose pierced. and im getting more on my ears soon. i was 9 when i got my first holes done, 12 when i got my second, and 14 when i got my cartlidge and nose. none of them hurt, personally. just a tiny pinch. my friend is 16 and doesnt have hers done cause every time she does they get infected. so shes just not piercing them again for awhile. watch someone else get them done. theres even videos online of people getting them done. just look it up on google. it may help. just think about how cute they'll look after xD

I don't have my lobes pierced yet. I'm 21.
I want to get them pierced twice and possibly gauged a bit. Can't afford it yet though, so yeah... food is more important than piercings sometimes.

I got mine when I was 8.

I wanted them done for ages but I was allowed them done for passing my years 2 SATs.

I did kind of only want it done because everyone else did. Not many people in school had it done but all of the female members of my family have their ears pierced and since I was the youngest I really looked up to them. I have never regretted it and I still love buying pretty ear rings

Re: Does anyone not have their ears pierced? - August 3rd 2010, 09:59 AM

I had my done years and years ago but after a while, stopped wearing them and now they've closed up so I don't really remember what it's like having them done but with the amount of kids with their ears pierced today, I can't see it being that bad.

I think I remember talking to you around the time you attempted to get them done and I completely understand how scary, if that's the right word, it can be going to get a piercing as I've been pierced about 10 times but it really isn't that bad. Just think about something or have someone distract you while it's happening and you'll probably hardly notice it and I bet you, you'll feel so much better knowing you went through with it and got it done. :]

Re: Does anyone not have their ears pierced? - August 4th 2010, 07:28 PM

I didn't get my ears pierced until I was 15 years old. Personally, I thought it felt like more than a pinch :/ I also had it done at Claire's with a gun hehe... I'd say its a strong pinch, but definitely not worth letting it discourage you from getting pierced if you really want it done!

I don't think I have a great pain tolerance, but I ended up with 4 holes in my ears, plus a cartilage piercing, naval piercing and 2 tattoos. I just know how to psych myself up for it. I tell myself how bad I want it and that I can endure the pain to have it! lol

I have 4 piercings in one ear, 3 in the other.... I remember being terrified that it would hurt but it's not as bad as you would imagine! You need to make sure you get it done somewhere good though because they can get infected if you don't. I have known lots of people get them done and Claires and have infections, also, they do it in the window so I would hate that but it's up to you

Re: Does anyone not have their ears pierced? - August 4th 2010, 07:53 PM

I've got 4 earrings in each ear.
When I first got it done I was about 8 and almost passed out after they did the first one.
But actually, there isn't much pain. Sitting there waiting is the hardest part. it stings for a few seconds and that's it.
As long as you keep it clean anyway, infections will hurt!

I've never had anything pierced. It's mainly due to my disability, my skin is very sensitive so my doctors have always strongly advised me not to.

It's definitely just psyching myself up for it. I couldn't sit there and wait for it to happen. Sometimes I just think, I'd totally get it done right now. But that's only if it's that minute. If I then had to go and find somewhere to get it done, I'd lose the buzz and mood of getting it done.

It's the sitting there and waiting for it to happen. I just need to have a kick of confidence, I just don't get those very often!

Re: Does anyone not have their ears pierced? - August 5th 2010, 01:51 AM

Well, I didn't get mine done till I was 16 and a half. I wanted it when I was younger, but I was really scared to get it done. But then decided that I wanted it done and got it done.

It wasn't as bad as I thought it was, it only hurt for a second really. I am also weird and freak out at little things, which caused me a small problem. But it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. And now I am pretty happy with it, though I have had many moments when I have wished that I didn't get my ears pierced. But the good moments make up for it.

I used to have them done, but they always got infected. No matter the type of earring I had in, how well it was taken care of, etc. It always got infected. So, nope, no ear piercings for me!

I don't!
I'm like phobic of needles and things piercing my skin - so yeah - no earings to me.
Plus - In my opinion - I wasn't born with holes in my ears - therefore I don't need holes in my ears!!
I don't do pain if I can help it

Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

I didn't have mine pierced until i was 18. I definitly didn't know anyone else who didn't have pierced ears. And all I wear usually are silver studs.

I have my ears pierced, but there is a girl at my school that does not have her ears pierced. She claims to be too lazy to properly take care of a piercing, hence why she hasn't gotten them done. However, she bought these things from Claires where you can put dangly ear rings for pierced ears in them and clip it to your ear. It looks pretty cool and from far enough away, you don't even notice the little device thing they are sitting in. She frequently complains about the lack of clip-on ear rings for girls who aren't in the 80 years old plus range.
