I luuuuuuuuurve earrings and wish i could wear them...

I actually went to get my ears pieced last year and you know how they draw the dots on first...well this woman who was going to piece them couldn't draw the dot on my ear lobe her hands were shaking so much. Then she brought out the gun, and I was like no way am i gonna let her staple that thing in my head by accident - so I left.

Now I have this really big phobia of the gun, any comments on getting your ears pierced??? I am desperate to wear earrings, but am too scared to get them pierced...

I had my ears peirced once, and I cried for so long after. (I was younger then..) It hurt a lot... the woman said it was because my ear lobes were relatively thick. The worst part for me however was when I put on/took off earrings.. that feeling of poking something through my ear just wasn't pleasant! So I just let them close up after a while. But this is just me, I'm very very chicken

If you do want peirced ears, I say go for it! A lot of my friends and people I know have peircings, from belly button to nose to eyebrow, and they're fine with it. And everyone has peirced ears nowadays Just close your eyes and think of something else, like your toes

If you really want your ears pierced I'd get it done at a proper piercing studio if I were you. They'll use a needle, which hurts much less than a gun

Absolutely!

Hurts less and gives a cleaner piercing!

It's usually a lot more expensive, but worth it. It really is.

If you really know what you're doing, home piercings are perfectly fine! That is IF you know what you are doing..

There was a boy in my school who did that. He just went to the bathroom, sterilsed the needle with his lighter, and poked it through, he now has 3 nose holes.

I have 3 holes in each ear... it hurt a bit after it was pierced... but it was nothing to cry about..

I even went to the "Piercing Pagoda" in a local mall..

Just do it..

If you really don't want to get them done, how about some clip ons? Anouk Lepere has some gorgeous ones in her line.

For one reason or another, a lot of designers do clip-ons... I know Dior and Chanel do a lot of them for sure

PS: If you really really want to get your ears pierced, heed everyone's advice and get them done at a tattoo place, where you can get pierced with an actual needle instead of a gun. It is way safer and efficient.
