Hey. i did my second and third hole and cartlige and this is wut i did...go to walmart and get those piercing kits...the earrings yah kno that are on display for like $9 at Walmart. take the earrings out of the containers that they are on. use a pen or something and poke it out or u can have the ppl at walmart take them out for you. put them in alchol for a few mintues and mark ur ear where u wanna do it. then hold the earring and poke it threw. the earring is pointy cuz its a piercing one. anything else let me kno Hope i helped! Take Care. x3 SweetStar.

well, piercing ur ears urself prolly aint the best idea bc they will prolly c em and make u take em out and all that crap but if ur gonna do it then heres how:
1. make sure u fully sterilize a needle (put it over fire until the needle gets black and then wipe off the black excess until it is a shiney needle again)
2. get som1 to help you like ur friend or somthing (doing it ur self is gonna hurt A LOT more)
3. make sure that u have the place marked wit marker or somthing bf hand. (make sure both dots are even b4 u go jabbing away lol)
4. make sure u have enough distance between ur 1st and 2nd hole
5. try putting some ice on your ears prior to the piercing so itll be number and wont be so painful.
6. w/e u do, DONT pierce it slow. the more u take ur time the more it hurts and the more scar tissue will build up.
7. it is also a good idea to put somthing hard behind it so the needle goes straight (apple, potatoe, ect.)
8. keep the needle in the ear for a second or two and then remove it quickley, promptly putting the earing in.
9. u prolly kno this but its a good idea to spin the earing everynight(to avoid skin to grow to the earing) and clean it with alcholhol or peroxide to avoid infection.
10. leave it in for 6 to 8 weeks before changing it.
(i say this all rom experience, i pierced my
friends third hole)
if u need anymore help, just ask

You should listen to your parents cause if you do it yourself it could get infected and that would suck. Try talking to you parents again. I had to talk my mom into letting me get it done but she eventually gave in.

Going against your parents is never the right route to take. Having someone pierce them whose not a professional can get u seriously hurt. Your ears can become infected and then you would have to ask your parents to tkae u to a doctor.
Take my advice and don't get your ear pierced!
Good Luck!

I dont think you should pierce them on ur own. what I would do is go to the mall with a friend, and get them pierced there. Hope I helped!

xxoBriannax answered Tuesday August 31 2004, 4:53 pm:
You probably won't get them precise. But anyways, numb your ear with ice, then get an earing or needle or whatever, then light a lighter then put the earing or whatever above it so it gets really hot, then yea, you pierce.

EmbracedxRain answered Tuesday August 31 2004, 3:53 pm:
Don't pierce your own ear's. They will get infected. And you'll end up in a lot of trouble after you do it if your parents didn't want you to. Just wait unitl they say its ok. Hope it helps *AMbER*

Don't do it yourself. There's way too much risk. If your parents don't want you to get it, then you should oblige by that. Just wait until your older.

Doing your own piercings is never a good idea. There's a bigger risk of infection and it will hurt more! Plus, your parents will notice that you disobeyed them and got a second hole anyway, so why risk getting into trouble? Just be patient and talk to your parents about why they won't let you get it done. Maybe if you discuss it with them, they will change their minds and see that you're responsible.

Roxybabii922 answered Tuesday August 31 2004, 3:31 pm:
Well, I wouldn't really do my ear because when you screw up you can really tell, but, when I pierced my lip I used a needle and just shoved it through then took the needle out and put the stud in it... just make sure that you clean it, or it will get infected!

jbdreamer answered Tuesday August 31 2004, 3:30 pm:
Before you hurt yourself, try to tell your parents that if you can't get it done by a professional, that you are going to attempt it yourself. Maybe that will change their minds. Or try going to differnet shops and see if they card you or not. It's not like you are getting your toung pierced.
