A piercing question...

No, not the kind of great importance...the kind about, well, piercing.  I think I just might want another one.  Not that I have many, or that the ones I do have are that interesting.  They are, in fact, completely and utterly boring.   My ear lobes have been pierced twice, although the top holes are closed up and I rarely wear earrings in the other ones.  I do like the looks of certain piercings, but mostly I'm not big on stabbing my body with needles in crazy places, I wouldn't even get an epidural.  I have always wanted another tattoo, but that's another topic for another day.  

What would suddenly spark an interest?  Well someone on FB was posting about their new piercing being infected.  (Yes I realize it seems odd to desire something based upon someone else's discomfort.)  The piercing she got is the tragus piercing.  Honestly I'm totally uncool and I had no idea what that was, so I had to look it up, and yeah, I was a bit afraid to find out.  (If you're as uncool as I am go ahead and click on the link, it isn't anything bad, it's on the ear!)  But when I saw what it was I was like wow, I really like that, I want one!

Part of me is thinking, it's cool, I like it, go for it!  And the other part is, I'm old, I'm boring, it probably won't look as good on me as it does in the pictures I looked at, and I don't really want to purposely cause myself pain, do I?

So, I don't know...should I, or shouldn't I?

Do what you want lady, but I gotta say I was totally wigged out by that pic, I'm not big on piercings though.

I didn't do very good the first go round of piercings...two in each ear and all closed. So maybe now is different give it a try, older may be better. I would start over with my lobs tho! Suzi
