I have just one piercing, a helix piercing in my left ear. It’s been there for about 15 years now and I don’t ever plan on taking it out!
I’ve always been interested in piercings, but never really thought about getting one myself until I was a teenager. My best friend at the time had her nose pierced, and I used to love looking at it in the mirror when she got dressed for school. It was so pretty!
But then I started thinking about how much it would hurt, and how long it would take to heal…and I just didn’t want to deal with any of that!
So when my mom asked me if I wanted her to pierce my ears, I said no. Then she asked again when we were at the mall with some friends one day and I said yes! Why not? It was free and only took a second!
She took me over to Claire’s Accessories where they do piercings (which is kind of gross because you get your ear cleaned by someone who is probably using those same hands to sell other people jewelry) but whatever…it still worked out fine for me!
