piercing


Question Posted Monday August 21 2006, 3:36 pm

I'm 13 years old going on 14 this December. I currently have my first hole pierced in my ear. I got it done in the first grade and wore earrings for a while. Then, a few years ago, I kinda just stopped, but last week, I started up again because yet again, I'm interested in wearing earrings. I really like the idea of piercings, and I would love to get the cartilage at the top of both of my ears pierced. (how much is it? will it hurt?) I asked my mother and she said that "I don't need it there".
I tried saying things like:
"Well I know, but I didn't need my first hole either."

and she says how I don't wear earring anymore, and I tell her the truth:
"I only have a few pairs and they're bent anyway."

my sister has both her first, second, and third hole pierced, so I kinda hint in how it isn't too fair how she has 3 piercings and I only have one.

I even offer to pay for it, and clean it, and do that on my own so she doesn't have to remind me.

it's kind of convincing her .. but I really want to get it done before my birthday (December 18) and I want to get it done before school starts.

help?

well first of all i would like to say happy birthday.. and second that.. i want to get my cartilage pierced to... so i asked some people i know with piercing the same kinda of questions.. most of the time if you go to a claire's its free but the earing's cost something.. and i have heard that it doesn't hurt as much as the eir lobe piercing but i have to warn you if it is done wrong it could paralize you.. because of some of the nerves in you ear . and i'm not trying to scare you but thats the truth.. but many people get the cartilage pierced so its pretty normal.. well i hope i helped and i hope it all works out for you!

good luck,

Okay it doesn't cost very much and it doesnt hurt I had the top of my ear pierced when I was 9 and I thought the bottom holes hurt alot more but dont clean it every day unless you have the right cleaner or else it will just start to bleed thats what happened to mine but if u do get it done be careful and Happy early b-day.

Hey I got my ear pierced (first, second, and cartlidge) and i have my nose pierced... i am 16 and my mom told me i could only get my first and second holes done until im 18 and then i can get my nose done if i wanted obviously that didn't apply later... i just helped out a lot around the house and acted really mature then eventually she let me.

if she doesn't notice your hard work then you could say if you help out a lot could i get my ears pierced.

to answer your question about does it hurt and the cost: people make it sound like it hurts a lot worse than it actually does. it just pinches for a second then its over. a few days after it will probably hurt a little bit, but after that it'll be fine. then i got my cartilage done at icing (by claire's) and there it only cost around $25. but since they hurt a little bit afterwards i'd only get one side done at a time so its not to much of a pain. as for your mom...well my mom was a little easier to convince but if i were you i would just keep trying the part where "you will pay for it and all your earrings for it" and that its what you want and it should be your choice as to what you want in your ear. but don't be too snobby about it towards her or anything; remain calm lol thats always the trick! good luck! xoxo helpachick
