Monday

Roll Call Time!

It's Monday which means ... time for another Roll Call!

Here's today's question.
How many piercings do you have, where are they, how old were you when you got them?

I have my ears pierced, got them done by a jeweler when I was 11.
No other piercings although I wanted SO badly to have my belly button pierced in high school.

  1. I have my ears double pierced. I got the first set done when I was 5, and the second set done when I was 16

  4. I BEGGED my parents to get my ears pierced growing up and they always told me I could get them done when I was 14. (My lucky number is 14 as a result). For my 12th birthday, my big present was a pair of gold pierced earrings - three days later I got them done! Huge surprise.

    I got my belly button pierced (Britney Spears FOR LIFE) in France on a school trip when I was 16. I came home and my mom said I could leave it it and not get my driver's licence, or take it out and could take my test. WOO that was a teen angst moment. I re-pierced it on my 18th birthday and took it out... sometime after my 25th? The hole is still super cute and I use it to freak out Z.

    Freshman year of college I pierced my nose because dammit I was an individual, and then took it out three months or so later because everyone else was apparently an individual too...

  5. My parents actually pierced my ears when I was a tiny baby because everyone kept calling me a boy so I guess it was their way of saying I was a girl. I got my second set of holes in my ears at 16. I BEGGED my parents to get my belly button pierced to the point my Dad took me at 17 (behind my Mom's back because he was sick of hearing me beg) to get it done. I took it out when I got married and never put it back in.

  6. I have my ears pierced and I got them done somewhere in the 10-12 yrs old range. I also have my belly button pierced which I had done a few months after I turned 18 (in secret!), my big act of independence! Haha! I took out my belly button ring somewhere around my mid 20s.

  7. My first ear piercing was when I graduated 5th grade. After that I added 2 additional holes in each ear while in high school. Thankfully that was just a phase!! I only wear earrings in my first hole.
    I'm so embarrassed to also admit I had my belly button pierced as a junior in college. Again, a phase! The belly button ring came out only a few months later.

  8. Currently, only my ears. I had them double pierced at 15 but I haven't worn earring in them in years. Not sure if they are closed up, but I count them as closed. I had my belly button pierced from 21-25. It was a short lived rebellion that I lost interest in shortly after piercing it. Haha. My DR was thrilled that the hole had totally closed up by the time I was pregnant. No risk of tearing it back open!

  9. I have quiet a few - 6 in my ears, my belly button (which has been removed), and my nose (which has also been removed, sadly), most of which were done when I was 18 and 19. And the craziest part? I pierced half of them myself!

  10. I have my ears pierced since I was 2. I did have a second hole that I got at about 13 and are now closed. Also have my cartilage done which I got when I was 15

  11. I got my ears pierced when I was 12. Basically all the other girls in my glass got it done around then too. My doctors' office did it. I never wanted anything else done, but I did get my cartilage pierced while after day drinking in Dublin before freshman year of college. I wasn't on American soil but 24 hours before I took it out. The funny thing now is that I rarely even wear earrings.

  12. I got my ears pierced when I was 1. I got a second set of holes when I was 12 and my belly button when I was 16. I finally decided I was too old for the belly button in my mid 20s, but the hole still hasn't closed up! I almost never wear earrings in any of the ear holes!

  13. I have 4 piercings! My mom got my ears pierced when I was 6 months old, but the jeweler pierced them too high, so two months ago (in preparation for the wedding), I finally another set of more appropriately placed holes!

  14. I only have my ears pierced and had them done at Claire's [at the mall] when I was 9! I too so desperately wanted my belly button pierced in high school and my mother was right....I'd be glad to not when I "grew up". So happy I didn't do it behind her back!

  15. I have two holes in each ear - I think I was in 3rd grade for the first and then 5th for the second? I wanted to get my belly button pierced so badly in high school. My parents told me I needed a 4.0 to get it. By the time I had that 4.0 I grew out of the phase (thankfully!).

  16. I don't have any piercings, not even my ears! How crazy is that? I had my ears pierced when I was 7, but I let them grow up. I would always forget to put earrings in. I never thought to get them pierced again.

  17. My mom pierced each ear when I was a newborn (she worked in the NICU and the MDs would just do it - so she did mine at my doctor's office.)

    I really really really wanted a nose piercing when I was 24 - but opted out cause I was worried about the hole showing when I took it out. So instead (in true 24 year old wisdom) to get a tattoo instead. (It is tiny and on my hip bone...but still.)

  18. Ears only...but I fantasize about having a tiny diamond nose piercing.

    1. Wanted my nose pierced forever too and after noticing younger women in my yoga class, some my age, i.e. 43 and two older, with small, shiny, discrete diamond nose studs, I began wondering how I'd look with one, but I always felt my nose was too long or big. Was I having a mid-life crisis or an affinity to look like my yogini and others in my yoga class? Well, I finally did it and L-O-V-E it! Write me if you've any questions or want to hear my story.

  19. I have two holes in each ear - I got the first piercing when I was 6 & added the second when I was 18. I really wanted to get my nose pierced in college but my sweet granddaddy thought it was the silliest thing he'd ever heard of...and so I never did it, ha-ha!

  20. I have my ears double pierced. I got the first set when I was six at a jeweler after begging my parents for months. I got the second set when I was 11 at...Claire's. I only wear earrings in the first but the second never did closet up. I never wanted any other piercings because I was terrified of needles by the time I was a teenager and my friends were doing their belly buttons.

  21. I got my ears pierced when I was a baby- only a day old in the hospital. I debated whether to pierce my own daughter's when she was a baby because it's a tradition but I decided to let her make that decision herself.
    At some point I also had my ears double pierced but took them out along time ago. During college on spring break I got my belly button pierced - what a mistake! I still have the hole

  22. I just have my ears pierced. I got my bell button pierced on my 18th birthday but my mom told me I could either keep it in, or go to the Kenny Chesney concert. I chose Kenny ;)

  23. I have my ears pierced, and got them pierced at Merle Norman when I was 11. Have never wanted any other piercings. My Mom is 68 and never had her ears pierced and has always worn clip ons!

  24. Currently, I just have my ears pierced, but before I had my oldest boy I also had my belly button pierced. I'd had that since I was in high school. And then one crazy day in college a friend and I had our tongues pierced -- we were insane, obviously. I took that out a week later when my dad saw it. I was mortified.

  26. I have my ears and belly button pierced! got my belly button done two weeks after going to college... my one little act of rebellion haha!! Still have it in and still love it. I like how it won't be permanent someday when I decide I want it out!

  27. I got my ears pierced when I finished kindergarten and finally got an S+ in naptime. I'd been flunking it all year because I talked too much. My mother's beautician did them:) I also had second ear holes done in high school at "the claire's", but I let them grow in after a few months. It was a pain to figure out two pairs of earrings each day.

  28. Just pierced ears which I wanted so badly, but had to wait until I was 12 to get them. It was such an exciting thing for me once I finally got them done!

  29. I have pierced ears that I've had since I was 7, and I also HAD my belly button pierced when I was 21... however, after I had two babies I took it out because my belly button that was once an adorable innie is now a crazy looking outie and it makes the belly ring flop around all weird. EEK.

  30. Pierced ears at 9! I wanted an eyebrow ring at 8 - (what the heck??), fortunately no one let me!

  31. oh my gosh, i can't even resist this question! haha! i am the same as you, ears pierced at 11 at a jewelry store. my parents had originally said i had to be 18!!! whoa! but 11 was good. :) i was fascinated by belly button rings in high school but i really just wanted a double piercing, which my mom said no to. somehow i wound up, though, getting my cartilage pierced... at the jewelry store... which they did crooked! and it wouldn't heal! so i took that out and then re-did my own. [like.. what?! who was i?] and then! i did a double cartilage piercing right beneath it! [again, who was i??? i did that to my own self. i would seriously vom if i tried that now.] i thought it was so cute. and then, womp womp, i enjoyed so much summer pooling at age 17 that i got an ear infection that spread up to my piercings and the dr. said umm, you need to take those out. so, here i am back to my age 11 single ear piercings. and actually... for the last two years i have been wearing the gold balls that they were pierced with! haha! and this is really kind of a lame story, huh!

  32. Fun question! Just my ears and had it done at the mall when I was 10.

  33. Have two holes in each ear and my cartilage in one ear (which I haven't worn an earring in since I was like 15 haha). And I never wear earrings in my 2nd hole, it's probably grown in now honestly!

    ReplyDelete
  34. My ears when I was a baby, second holes and cartilage in middle school/high school, and belly button when I was 16 :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I got my first of holes in my ears when I was about 5, my cartilage when I was 18, my second set in my ears at about 19, my nose when I was 20 & my third set in my ears when I was 30.

    I have since had to get rid of my nose ring due to work & my third set of holes closed up. :(

    ReplyDelete
  36. This is a fun topic! It's fun to read everyone's comments too! I got my ears pierced when I was 8 and then got second holes when I was 9 or 10. I didn't get another piercing until I was 18 which was my belly button (and I still have! I'm 28 btw... no plans to take it out anytime soon). In college, I got an industrial piercing & then my tragus shortly after I graduated from college. I still have both of these as well & can't even imagine taking them out.

  37. sooooo when I was in high school and college I went a little crazy. I think at one time I had 10 piercings...CRAZYYYYY. My mom did not approve!
    I tried the whole nose piercing thing my freshman year of college...Wasn't a good look! I got my belly button pierced when I was a junior in high school. And the rest were all in my ear.

  38. For my 10th birthday I was allowed to get my ears pieced! Even though I had to wait until I was 10, my little sister got hers done along with my mom at the same time #oldestchildproblems lol When I was in high school, my sister and I went and got our 2nd holes done together. I don't really wear earrings in my 2nd hole anymore but it was fun to do :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Two! One in each ear! I go my ears pierced when I was 10 (when my parents finally let me). At the time I couldn't wait and I thought it was so crazy that they made me wait until I was "so old", but now that I'm a mom...I can see why they did!! Our little one will have to wait until she is AT LEAST 10! :-)

  40. I've had 3 piercings! (Ears when I was 10, cartilage when I was 18 and 19 and tragus when I was 20.) I had to let my cartilage heal and tragus because my parents didn't like it hahaha - Svetlana @Life With a Side of Wine
