First piercing in '81 age when left ear was straight - right was gay - and both (which was what I did) confusing the
heck out the abnormal at that time. Added another tier in '95 to wear studs over hoops.
I got my earlobes pierced when I was 11 after badgering my mum for months, and recently got a double helix piercing. I don't often actually wear earrings, but when I do, they're usually fun and attention-grabbing pieces.
