Pierce Your Own Ears





Introduction: Pierce Your Own Ears

disclaimer: i am not responsible for any injuries or problems that occur

alright now that thats over with. this instructable will teach you how to pierce your own ears. this should only be used as a last resort. i did so because i am not allowed to have my ears pierced. which leads me to another thing i will teach you how to hide your piercing!

Step 1: Sanitization of Your Piercing Utensil

alright infection is nasty so sanitizing is a must.

first hold your needle with pliers/tweezers whatever and hold it over a flame for about 2 minutes

than soak your needle in alcohol for about 5-10 minutes

Step 2: Piercing

alright now dot your ear where you want to pierce with a pen or marker or whatever. probably the most important part because you want them even. now this part isnt a must. but it is preferable. ice the ear you are about to pierce for about a minute to numb it. get a soft surface and hold it behind your ear ( cork/sponge/sock) it doesnt really matter. now insert the needle where you have placed your dot. you might be nervous but do not jerk around do this slowly so you can get it through to the end. now that the needle is through wipe up blood "if any" and slowly move the needle around. insert earing. and repeat! guys i advise doing the left first.

Step 3: Hiding It " BONUS STEP!"

alright for girls long hair is helpful and this part might not be necessary. guys with long hair who are not allowed piercings this is recomended. guys with short hair " such as myself" your piercing WILL get noticed. but a few lies here and there should let your guardian know that you were just messing and are letting the holes close. but you are NOT!! ok this is going to sound weird. find a skin tone broom ya know the old style ones. take of a piece of the end. clip it to the size of your piercing " leave some room in case swelling occurs' and insert. these are not noticable and shouldnt be noticed or will be disregarded as scabs. SANITIZE THESE BAD BOYS FIRST!!insert and leave in.

Step 4: Aftercare

do not use peroxide or alcohol as this kill the healing agents. dial anti- bacterial soap. sea salt soaks work best.

not reccomended but yes

Can you use peroxide instead alcohol?

I would really like to try this, but I'm scared lol


It's probably best to get someone that has done it numerous times before to do this.

why the left ear first?!

My guess would be because the left ear is usually considered the "straight" ear, so if you want to stop with just one, as a straight man, the left one would be a better bet.

You shouldn't ice your ear it makes the skin tighten and rougher to pierce. You should use tooth numbing gel or something like that.

why did you put the needle over fire first??
