Many of us ladies who grew up in the 1980’s had our ears ruined by those really heavy, and really big earrings we used to wear. This was before manufacturers knew how to make them lighter, and didn’t make them in clip for some reason. I remember the pain and the occassional bleeding even, but I’m a believer in suffering for beauty and fashion.
It wasn’t just the heavy earrings that did damage, when I got my ears pierced at age 12 they pierced them too low. A few years ago I had reconstructive surgery on one of my lobes because I was afraid my ear lobe would tear.
I urge all mothers out there to make sure that they take their daughter to someone reliable when your daughter wants her ears pierced and that you mark where you want the hold to be.
I would like to share a wonderful website – EarringDoctor.com— that has every possible thing you could ever need to correct the problems many of us face. Take a look. I hope that this will be helpful to you!
