I myself have several piercings, but I have friends who don't and thought it would be fun for them to have some earrings.

Step 1: Tools and Supplies

2 small paper clips a pair of stud earrings superglue and a pair of pliers with wire cutters

Step 2: Cut the Stud

Take the stud earring and pliers and use the wire cutters to cut of the back of the earring of. If you don't get all of it just rub the back on some sand paper until smooth.

Step 3: Straighten Then Curl

Straighten the paper clip with the pliers. Curl one of the ends just enough so it will fit under the stud. Curl the other end the opposite direction so you make a really swirly S. make sure that one end is bigger than the other to create opposition. Repeat to the other paper clip.

Step 4: Bend in Half

Bend the paper clip in half. This will become the non- cuff.

Step 5: Glue

Put some superglue on the stud and on the smaller curl of the paper clip. Let sit for at least 20 minuets.

Step 6: Finish and Wear

You are now done and able to use them on your earlobe, cartilage, nose, or lip.
