cross earrings



top: tesco
earrings: urban outfitters

A few people have mentioned it, but yes I've got my ears pierced again! Its not the first time I've had them done. When I was young I stretched them to about 24mm/28mm, I've had them taken out for about 4 years now and they have shrank down to around 8mm now but I don't wear plugs in them. I've been wanting to get another piercing above them for a while now, so finally bit the bullet and did it! However nowhere on my local highstreet would pierce them for me, I presume the hole I already had was a bit off putting so went to a specialist piercings place aka a goth shop to get them done! I've been stocking up on various earrings for the last few weeks, but these are my favorites so far. I have a little bit of an obsession with crosses I think! If you've followed my blog long enough to remember eargate then kudos to you!

& I also have lip and a monroe piercing, Surprises me how many people dont notice! But I dont really notice them on my own face anymore Im so used to them! Oh and also, I dont regret my piercings or stretched ears at all! It was a part of my teenage days & I've got a few crazy stories about them which I love telling!

  1. so cutes! i got the necklace version of these a while ago, they've now brought it out again and its more expensive... even though its exactly the same?! i used to have my ears stretched too, i hate the way they are now. I didn't really notice it until recently when a girl at work went on for 10 minutes about how much it made her sick! So slightly self conscious. I used to have my lip pierced too, i notice the hole and sometimes other people do but whatevz. We were so emo! who knew eh. Myspace generation 4 lyf. x

  2. Love the earrings! I had mine stretched too and they're about 4mm now. Sometimes I have the urge to stretch them again but I threw away all my plugs and tapers!
    I really love the top too :) x

  3. The earrings look great! And I bet a monroe suits you too. I'd love to get some more piercings but I'm too chicken and have a super low pain threshold. Might bite the bullet and get my nose pierced when I'm brave enough.

  6. I love the earrings, I'm currently obsessed with anything with a peace sign or cross! i had my ears stretched to about 15 and they look gross now haha, just slits! I had my monroe done too, its closed but I have a hole there! Everyone seems to think its a beauty spot, i don't mind it too much :) xo

  7. lovely earings :]
    how frecking strange i have exactly the same piercing as you, plus my wrist and neck, and nose lol, but i got them all when i was like a little scene 15 year old haha, i do sometimes wanna stretch my ears again, but i dunno im constantly putting my lip bar back in but always end up taking it out. noone else notices my lip piercings either but i think they are really obvious. xx

  13. I got my ears pierced when I was like 3...I can't remember that moment lol.
    But it's true you don't really "see" your own piercings. I got a nose ring (and had a lip stud in) but I never really see it...weird.

  14. The earrings are really pretty, as are the pictures!
    I've had my ears pierced since I was a baby but I want to get my cartilage done. Doubt this will ever happen though :( x

  15. I love your earrings! I've just noticed your lip and monroe piercing on the photos above but I would have never really noticed if it wasn't for you pointing it out! I love piercings, at least they can heal up if you don't like them, unlike tattoos (I still want one!)

  19. They look great, my ears are 20mm and I always consider taking them out, but I don't think dangly earrings have ever really suited me anyway so might not bother. Sometimes I'll wear a single feather earring and hook it under my tunnel but that's about it.

  20. The black and white effect is so pretty. The second one looks like something I'd frame and put up on my wall.

    I'd love to hear the crazy stories about your teen years, ahaha, so many of my friends have stretched their ears but I don't think I could ever do it. I want to get some more piercings though.

  22. I had noticed the lip piercing before but only on your tumblr when you put it back in. I was completely unaware of the monroe 0_0

    I wanted a lot of piercings in my teenage days but my mum is dead against piercings and I was too chicken to go against her word. Maybe one day x

  23. i love these earrings, im thinking of stretching my ear enough to put a plug in on my seconds, im a bit worried it wouldnt stretch back though! and im not sure what size the smallest plug is. would be so cool if you could do a post on your piercings and stretching experiences and stuff? and i'd love to hear the stories haha!
