    Yeah I did mine myself when I was about 18 (1L 0R). Sewing needle and a block of ice. I've thought about doing the other ear, but my brother got his done for his mid-life crisis and I'm sick of living in his shadow.

    When I faced middle age I took the earring out, the holes long closed up and I don't care the sight of my own blood much. Next...?

    Son?? I am in my forties! :)

    They are the starter studs; Titanium, actually. I will be able to take them out April the 15th, to which I will get a pair of 10mm rings, and wear the studs at work. But, whereas my workplace cannot discriminate, I cannot have inappropriate earrings, like those gauge plugs.

    Speaking of, plastic surgeons are going to be doing a lot of business in the coming decades, reshaping earlobes from those gauge plugs.

    As for tattoos, I have plenty. I stopped at age 25.

    Actually, I don't know what you are saying, so I need for you to explain this to me, and within the confines of the forums rules.

    I am never growing up and I am never growing old. Age is just a number. DO what makes you happy.

    I'll probably stir up a mess with this but,I can't figure out all this stuff with the piercings and tatoos. Sure alot of people think it's cool but the way I see it, if the good lord would've planned for me to wear an earring then I would have been born with pierced ear lobes or whatever else, same with the tats.

    Ahh religion. In before the lock. :) (I do have a single tattoo on my back of a spider. Spiders are my friends and I ensure they have a safe haven in my house.)

    Been there, done that... I bought a half-stack Marshall under the illusion that it would be a classic addition to my collection. And that's what it is ; a collection under dust covers. It was too loud, and had no nuance what so ever, so I hated it and that was about 30 years ago.

    We don't get fooled again.

    He/she didn't mean for you to wear clothes either, but that worked out pretty well for everybody.

    Never understood men wearing earrings. I think they enhance the appearance of women. Definitely not a fan of tattoos. I can't conceive a symbol, image, name, number, etc., that I would want permanently etched into my skin. My avatar has a tat, and that's as close as I'll get.

    My wife worked with a younger girl who had a Micky Mouse tat on her ankle. I'm wondering how that will look when she is in her 50s.

    My mid-life crisis has expired...I think...

    I'm a little over 50, and I don't know what I'll do when I hit middle age.

    :D

    I did just start working on my scuba diving certs, so maybe something along that line.

    Mid-life crisis? Think I missed it.
    Maybe at 64, when I started reading TDPRI, and added 8 guitars, 1 bass and 2 amps to my collection?

    Youth, mid-life, it's all behind me, and I'm all better now. When I feel some sort of irresistible urge to change coming on, me and old Toto climb aboard the Toto-Mobile and take a drive, slow the speeders down, and enjoy the music of the honking horns. When we come home, we have a sandwich, and well, it's all good again brother.

    I don't know if I'm still in "middle age" or not... I'm 76 years "old?" right now but am still out there pickin' three nights a week, every week with some other gigs on the side and having a great time... The loose women thing is over as I have a wife of 12 years that I really love and loves me. My ex wife wasn't nearly as supportive of my music as the current (and final) wife is. She's cool and understands that the only thing(s) that gets stiff at this point in time is what I don't want to be still, knees, hips, neck, back and others... As far as the earring thing goes, I had a couple in my left ear for many years but they've healed up I suppose though I haven't tried to put one in for about 15 years or so... At one point years back when I was still in SoCal I used to wear a fishhook in my ear which actually got a lot of good comments from gig patrons and might have helped in my on going (at the time) quest for the coveted "strange poon"...........JH in Va. 100_4096.JPG

    JH in Va, I know you say that you're having a "great time", but it sure looks like someone you ain't too fond of just walked into the bar!
