An earring is a piece of jewelry attached to the ear via a piercing in the earlobe or another external part of the ear except in the case of clip earrings, which clip onto the lobe. Earrings have been worn by people in different civilizations and historic periods, often with cultural significance. Locations for piercings other than the earlobe include the rook , tragus , and across the helix see image at right. The simple term "ear piercing" usually refers to an earlobe piercing, whereas piercings in the upper part of the external ear are often referred to as " cartilage piercings". Cartilage piercings are more complex to perform than earlobe piercings and take longer to heal. Earring components may be made of any number of materials, including metal , plastic , glass , precious stone , beads , wood , bone , and other materials.
Today, 3, years later, the fashion has been revived. Discreet studs twinkle at the earlobes of stockbrokers and stock clerks alike; outlandish ornaments dangle below the ears of art directors and electricians. Essentially, a needle pierces the earlobe, and the post is inserted. All a man has to do is continue wearing the earring and clean it daily with hydrogen peroxide until the hole heals--typically in three or four weeks. But which ear to pierce? The received wisdom is that straight men favor the left ear, while gay men prefer the right. In fact, says Cross, the latest trend among her clients is to have both ears pierced.
So I am thinking about getting my left ear pierced from a face to face angle, the piercing would be to your right side but my left side. Before I do anything I just want an answer to this. Get the piercings wherever you want.
