Talk about your piercings or tattoos, if you have any.
No tattoos. Don’t intend to get any.
And I have just normal pierced ears. However, I only got them pierced like a year and a half ago. My mom was always very much opposed to punching holes through flesh so we never got our ears pierced as children. Then in my teens I got permission to wear clip-on earrings. Then, I got into jewelry making and found clip-ons that LOOK like pierced earrings. Only they would fall off from time to time. I got to thinking about it; I LOOK like I have pierced ears to the world. I want to wear earrings on a daily basis. And it’s really annoying how they fall off and I can’t find hoops that don’t hurt, and I LOVE the look of hoop earrings. So, one day while out shopping with friends, I decided to get my ears pierced, called home on my trac-fone and sort of told/asked my Dad, and he said okay.
I realize that may sound weird to some people for a 23-year-old to be asking daddy if it’s okay to get her ears pierced, but you have to understand that I live at home with my parents and dad still provides me with an awful lot. I have no desire to start an uprising, so I try to still touch base with my dad when I want to do things like that. I pretty much knew he was going to be okay with it, but out of respect I let him know what was going on.
So, now that that’s out of the way… I do have a small though to get a second set of piercings but I’m not sure yet. I might just get an ear cuff, if I ever find one I like and can buy without feeling too guilty about the cost. Most of the ones I like are $30 or more and the thoughts of supporting a GFA missionary for a month with that money swirls round in my head and I just can’t do it.
