    How old where you when you had an ear or 2 pierced? I've never had either ear pierced.

    17 (in 1985) wore one for a few years, can't even tell it was ever pierced now.
  3. I got my left ear pierced when I was 18. It was 1983, and beleive it or not, at that time it was still considered somewhat radical for a guy to have a pierced ear.
  4. 22 I believe. way more painful than my tattoos. lol

    Must have been when I was 13 and heard "Bastille Day" by Rush for the first time. Man, has Geddy's voice mellowed since then...

    21 or 22. Early 80's. GF made me do it. I was one of the very few in my town to have one.

    I was 10 when I got the first pair, late teens-early 20s for the other 12 holes.

    16 and dad did not respond well. But that was part of the reason I did it.

    Was not well received when I joined the military a couple of years later either.

    I remember , it was still taboo, try growing up in Texas in the 80's and having 2in left ear 1 in right, no matter what you were gonna catch crap, i wish i had a dollar for every comment, headslap, and threat of bodily harm, its funny but at 47, i STILL have to deal with some of that, its a mad world.

    I don't know if it has something to do with fashion trends but does it seem like less men are piercing their ears?

    Wussies all of em, i used to tell the guys that gave me flack, "it takes bigger castanets to have earrings in Texas , than to give me crap about it." Totally disarmed them, well most of em anyway, lol
  12. When I was 16 because this girl I had the hots for said it would look good.

    Had to get the manly points with her as well, so, I just took of of the stud earrings she had and jammed in through my ear by hand.

    Soon as she was gone, it was gone. Man, I was such a slave to my hormones..

    I don't remember now, but mid-nineties...I'm guessing I was around 23. Both ears are still pierced.

    about 35.
    I grew up in the punk scene and watched waaaay too many piercings get ripped out accidentally in the pit at shows accompanied by spraying blood that I waited til I knew I wasn't gonna be in that craziness to do it. now I got some nice ol double zero horn spirals in there.

    I think I was 14 when I pierced my left ear around 1985. Haven't worn any type of jewelry for decades now.
