I was 16. It was forty six years ago and my friend and I decided to pierce each others ears. We used ice to numb them, then disinfected a sewing machine needle and did it! Still have the same holes today! Today, I would probably chicken out!
First time I was 17 but I wasn't cleaning them out and the infection hurt so bad I couldn't put them back in so they closed back up. Then I got them done again when I was 19 and have had them pierced ever since
I was 5 then they closed and I got them done when I was 7, then they closed again when I was 9 when I got them done again and they closed again!!! So I actually got them done a few weeks ago and this time I don't think they are going to close up because they r doing a lot better that the other times, we're it kinda hurt to turn them. Now it doesn't hurt at all :D
