Ouch!

I got my ears re-pierced again last night (ie, for the third time) because the holes had closed up. It really wasn't bad (especially compared to childbirth!) but I can't believe I did this when I was 7 years old! Anyway, I'm looking forward to accessorizing again. I used to wear big earrings back in the late 80s/early 90s. Along with my big 'ol hairspray-stiffened bangs. Hmm, I appear to be missing the pic I wanted to post for everyone's amusement. Oh, well. If I find it I'll post it later.

I had a poodle doo once. I bet we would've been a pair. I love earings, so congrats. It is painful. I'm surprised people get their cartalidge and hoo haas pierced.. I mean geez!! We're going to take my sis to get her ears pierced when they come visit.

these images i gotta see for real...
unless you want to see pics of me in high school, then i can do without that deal.

Your earlobes are cartilage...but, your nether regions are not...yowch!

Diana said...

No I mean the really hard cartalidge at the tops of your ears. I mean, that's gotta hurt.

bigsip said...

Oh, that cartilage...I see now.

WHY would anyone get ~that~ pierced? So many questions come to mind....

I think we should start a thread of people's embarrassing high school pics. That would be fun.

I pierced my own ear in HS with an ice cube and a needle. It hurt like the dickens but what hurt more was when a friend gave me an ear ring of hers because mine "looked gay." I changed rings in class and lost the hole through the cartilage and since I had committed this far had to punch a new hole through cartilage and skin with a blunt stud post. I still have the scar. That really hurt but was sort of fun really. Who knows maybe I'll pierce my ear again someday to embarrass my boys.

Guys piercing their ears was popular when I was in high school. I always thought it was silly. If I were to get something pierced, I'd probably get a nose ring...One of those hoop types that makes you look like a bull...

i have gotten my cartilage pierced in my upper ear twice, and each time it has gotten infected so i've had to take it out. and yes, it did hurt..much worse than getting my tattoo, if you can believe that....and on the oh-so delicate subject of getting "that" pierced...a girl i used to work with had it done...came to work telling me all about it...about 3 or 4 weeks later she was wanting to "take it out and change it to something cute" to quote her....
but she was too embarrased to call the tattoo parlor and ask how she should do it!!! SO SHE ASKED ME TO CALL FOR HER!!!!! needless to say i didn't and was glad when she finally quit the bank..although i did give her the nickname "ringo" cuz she had a ring where rings shouldn't go!!!

I've never had any desire to prod, poke, pierce or permanently scar any part of my body. I figure as accident prone as I am, I get enough scarign on my own, without having to pay some guy to do it.
