Full disclaimer before diving into this feature: Despite saving countless piercing photos on Instagram and spending many hours pining over bejewelled ear stacks, I only have my earlobes pierced. Yes, my piercing journey is short and sweet. I first had them pierced when I was 7 after begging my parents so I could be just like the other girls in my class. The summer holiday that followed went by in a haze of pus, pain and me verging on passing out every time my mum tried to clean them for me. Suffice to say, the earrings were removed before the six weeks were up, and I did not return to school in September with any ear bling to show for it. Lesson learnt? Never try to fit in with the cool kids.
