Whether you’re debating on getting your very first piercing or if you’re a piercing veteran looking for an addition to your collection, we are here to inform. Today’s topic: Piercing 101- more specifically, our beloved ear piercings.
First, lets take a moment to pay homage to those who started piercing ears, more than 5,000 years ago. Ear piercing is one of the oldest forms of body modification, having varied meanings in the past and present. In ancient Egypt, earrings deriving from precious metals were a sign of wealth and a way to distinguish oneself in society. It was even banned in 13th century Europe by the Catholic church. Throughout time, history tells us that ear piercings signified forms of social class, rites of passage, sexuality, and artistic expression. There are many variations of ear piercings, some commonly known and some not. Regardless, your ear is a canvas that you can style however you desire. Whether you’re into layering or tragus piercings, this form of expression is an extension of who you are.
