Ear rings

Recommended Posts

Charlize

As I started to express myself I searched for clip on earrings that actually stayed on.  I remember being crushed when I lost the wirean earring at a gay bar.  Getting my ears pierced was a big step for me out of the closet.  Since then I have enjoyed finding and wearing different styles.  I also found early on that I can loose one even now, especially the slip through wire style.  I now back them up with a little plastic slide that one pushes up the wire behind the ear.  Here is a pick of a collection.  I had hung my wife’s up years ago and recently did the same for myself.   Mmmmm does that go with this outfit?

 

 

Hugs

 Wow so cool ! I got my wife a bracelet and earring rack from Michael’s craft store a few months ago, and someday I want to get one for myself although I definitely plan to paint it a different color as the matte black metal doesn’t appeal to me too much. I haven’t gottten my ears pierced yet but I think about it all the time, I think I’m going to get my ears pierced before I get the little tattoo that I want, maybe next year. One of the things that I really want when I finally finish with bottom surgery is a little white rabbit tattoo on the back of my shoulder, I don’t know why but it seems fitting and of course I love bunnies !

Hugs,

Jackie

Very nice Charlize!  I use those plastic keepers also.  My wife used to occasionally lose an earring so we've both learned to use them.

Very nice collection! I’ve been pierced so many times now in so many places it’s kind of funny. I’ve had everything from the piece of skin between my fingers to my neck belly privates tongue nose lips eyebrow. So many holes. Lol. Most are gone now but I do still have 5 in my ears and I’m thinking about doing my nose again. Second row up third from the right, I have some that are almost the same. And I have silver leaves like your gold ones. 😉

I don't have my ears pierced, but I do remember a friend years ago who has multiple ear piercings. I used to put all the studs in for him. I cannot remember the actual number of holes, but I used to think he was going for some kind of record lol.

 

That's a lovely collection Charlize. I do occasionally wear clip ons or magnetic, although they can get painful after a couple of hours.

I would love to get a few more piercing but when i got mine pierced the first and only time i had a great deal of trouble with infections.  I still have to be careful years later.  It seems that i'm sensitive to various metals.  The holes can quickly get itchy and start to discharge and soon they are inflamed.  I have a pair of gold hoops that i then use until things quiet down.  If i clean the posts with alcohol and use a touch of A+D ointment it seems to help and the lube from the A+D helps the posts to glide in.

Ohh Vanity!!!

With me,I have to watch when buying any earrings.Have to be nickel free,found out when I was 18 that I am allergic to the nickel used in silver earrings including my gold earrings.My earrings including jewelry are all nickel free which cost a little bit more.

Got my first PA piercing years ago.  Still viable but I don’t use it.  Ears about a year and a half ago. Other body parts last year but removed them before they healed completely.   I know not everyone can get away with pierced ears, but there are enough men with pierced ears these days I didn’t worry about it.  Tattoos are not my thing.

I got my right earlobe pierced maybe five years ago, and have always loved wearing long dangly earrings in it. Love an asymmetrical look!

 

On my birthday this February I got my other earlobe pierced as a little move toward transitioning. It was a problematic piercing and took forever to heal, but just a few days ago I was finally able to take out the ugly stainless jewelry and start wearing my own stuff.

 

That first day with my own jewelry in both ears I also had a good hair day with my nice long hair and I just felt so Validated. I felt real, felt comfortable, felt like me in a way I don't know I ever have!

 

Earrings can be MAGIC and I think I will always be a little obsessed with them.

Push pins! What a clever idea! 

I only have 3 pairs of earrings. 2 pair of CZ studs and a pair of large hoops. I'm boring, lol.

But they're all sterling silver because of my nickel allergy. (and my body jewelry is titanium because it's hypo-allergenic)

I've had a great time with those push pins.  They allow me to arrange things to create an appealing display.  It's such fun to pick out something that works for my mood, outfit or feeling.  Just a part of enjoying myself as myself.

 

Hugs,

The only ear rings I can wear for any length of time are the actual piercing studs. I have found that my body is allergic to most types of metal. What I have had to do is just wear pretty ones for a few hours at a time and then take them out and either go back to the ugly studs or just go without. I havn't worn anything in over 10yrs until this past weekend and my pretty's went into the holes with no problem. I was totally amazed that the holes didn't grow closed.

You might look for pure nickel as I've read it is the best material for those with allergies to metals.

      Hello and welcome!   The idea that your thoughts are due to social media, friends or your medication is unfounded.  It's none of that.  Seeking the counsel of a therapist is a good idea.  Coming to realize you are not the gender you were raised as doesn't always happen when we are young, or older for that matter.  It's all very personal and not to be thought of as following a strict timeline.  Many of us MtF grow up participating in very masculine activities seemingly as a way of proving to ourselves we are OK.  But of course, we are OK.  This is our normal and no one can take that from you.     Talk with your therapist, be honest, and determine what you want and need to do.     Cheers, Jani
    • Jani
      It scared me as well but as I found once you start to reveal who you are it gets easier and easier.  The idea is to not worry about what others think since you can only control what you think.   Taking small steps is great advice.     All my best, Jani

      Okay, so here is the deal, I am a male, 19 years old. I still live with my parents, and we are very close with eachother. I have been for the last 2 years, thinking about transitioning, and naturally, I resisted it for so long. Well, now I know how harmful that is. My mom I am almost positive would be accepting of it, probably would be disappointed. My dad however, I have heard his opinion towards the subject of trans people. Outside of my parents, I do not have much of a social life, I do not have friends, and nobody knows about this. I am at the point where, either I go through with it, or I end up blowing my brains out. Please, I need help, or advice.

      It scared me to death for many years. I really had a hard time imagining it working. But I've taken small steps over the last few and am now out 100% at work and full time everywhere.   Everyone's situation is different, but my work transition has been really easy. I'm a software engineer so not dealing with the public all the time but it's gone really well.    Your mileage may vary, but every fear I've had has turned out much better in practice than I expected.   You could start with small steps though and take your time getting more comfortable with each step. There's nothing that says you have to end up in a certain spot so try each new thing on and then see if you want to do more.   ~Julie    
    • My name isn’t Megan
      I’m a twenty year old who was born male, but recently I’ve been inclined to believe that I wish to transition to being a woman. I’ve just recently informed my parents of how I feel, who were supportive, if not a little confused. This is a somewhat recent development in my life; growing up, I didn’t have a lot of female tendencies (like wanting to wear a dress or play with girl’s toys), and I never felt uncomfortable with a male body. Across the span of this year, however, I’ve felt this nagging curiosity about what it would be like to become a girl. This curiosity has grown in recent months, so much that I think about it almost every day. The suddent growth of these feelings is what has me conflicted; I feel very strongly that I would be happier as a girl, but I don’t know why I feel so strongly all of a suddent. My mom thinks it might have something to do with outside influence (like media or friends or my antidepressants, Zoloft EQ for reference), and I’m honestly unsure as to exactly why myself. I plan to seek out a geneder therapist to help me with the process, but I’m looking for any advice that I can get as to how I can figure out who I am, who I want to be, and how I can get there.    Thanks very much for reading!

      today im listening to the stone roses i dont know if they made it over the other side of the pond but they had such an awesome sound political but real life aswell well worth a listen

      Forgot to add.  if anyone is interested.  I have started a YouTube channel to help me out on documenting myself in transition.  I may not look as pretty as all the other YouTubers, but I have something they dont and that is real life at the beginning stages.   https://www.youtube.com/feed/subscriptions/UCcCj9U8yd6MB0Rq3quqV0mw   Hope everyone likes   Amy

      Hello Cloee and welcome.  I'm happy to read you're talking with a therapist.  I think once you realize what is possible and that you can live happily you will be fine.  Read the stories of others, you'll see we are all similar.   Please join in the conversation.    Jani

      Martyn, Death is never the answer.  You will never solve anything if you are not around.  As noted, layering suicide over the changes in your family will not make things better.     Reach out to one of the organizations that Sugar Magnolia (Julie) has provided links to.     Your son can change.  He is under the influence of his mother now and as he grows he may see you as a good and fine person.
