Is it considered les classy (my mother thinks so :smile: ) ?
Is there enough room on the top of my earlobe?
I would either wear pendants with the diamond studs in the second hole, or the dbty in the first hole and small(er) colored gems in the second

My mum thought the same thing, so I pierced mine a second time by myself when I was 14. Sadly, as an adult, I decided she was right, and I haven't worn anything in the second piercings for many years. But piercings on me never go away once they're healed, so the holes will always be there.

Presumably, you are older than I was when I decided to pierce my ears a second time, so this really is about what you find aesthetically pleasing and the vision you have for yourself. Your mum doesn't have to wear the piercings, and she will love you even if she disapproves of your decision.

Personally, I think they are classier than tattoos, provided a curated ear is done right.

For you, I suggest a smaller diamond stud.

I got my second piercing last year and it took a while to heal, as I chose a titanium hoop instead of a stud. Lesson learned. I only recently changed it out to these huggie earrings.

I'm actually considering getting a third piercing (in between the other two) and use the current huggie for that hole and get a smaller huggie for the top piericing.

I would say avoid cartilage piercings due to the risk of disfigurement...

Also, people change their minds as they get older. Maybe wait and see in a few years if you still want another piercing? Getting another hole can’t be undone if you later decide differently.

Simple answer:yes! Have them love them love how diamonds sparkle all over my ears ;)
And if you consider Cate Blanchett and Emma Watson ‘classy’, then look closely at their ears, so many piercings :biggrin:
(Just wanted to add that I would never consider someone ‘classy’ based solely on how they dress or if they have tattoos/piercings, it’s all in the manners, in the way they carry themselves)

I’m 29. I think I will get it :smile:. I’m just not sure there is enough room at the top of my earlobe because that is where I want it, not in the cartilage

So I asked at the jewelry store and they said yes for the earlobe if it is close to the first one, which is fine for me as I was only planning on wearing small stones :smile:

I have 3 holes in my right lobe and 1 on the left. I wear 2 diamond studs in the extra ones. I've had them pierced like that since I was 12. Used to wear hoops in all..I prefer studs now :smile:
I say get whatever you like!

I say go for it! I ended up getting one below and one above my original 2 lobe piercings... my bestie noticed that the originals were uneven, lol! I’m 32 and am looking to getting a sixth ear piercing (I have my cartilage pierced in one side). I only wear studs and huggie hoops so I love mixing and matching my earring placement. Whatever you do, don’t get pierced with a gun! The damage they do makes the healing time much longer.

What other method is there, I thought it was the standard practice (if you mean the thing kind of like a one sided stapler) They said 2 weeks to heal

I've been thinking of getting a second piercing on both ears. I wear hoops almost always and my studs were getting neglected. With a second piercing I can wear both :biggrin:
Yes I was thinking something like pendant in one and studs in the second. Or diamond studs in the first and small colored stone in the second
