Whan that Aprille with his shoures sote/The eares of Lucie hath perced to the rote...

Hot on the heels (terrible methaphor, sorry) of my MAC facial yesterday has come ear-piercing today. My first-time-ever, but then I want to explore the world of earrings asap. Another little stage in feminisation!

I had it 'done' by a nice guy called John at Punktured in the North Laines of Brighton. He took fastidious care over hygiene, and the operation was both painless and successful. Well, painless compared to lasering my upper lip! I chose plain little titanium studs, and have to leave them in place for four months before wearing anything else. I think the studs look sweet, and are a small and subtle addition to my set of 'female indicators'.


  1. Very nice, Lucy! Very nice indeed!

    This is a subject I am very interested in, as I have been wanting to have my own ears pierced for quite a long time now, and I am really feeling the call of the awl(God! They don't really use an awl, do they!?).

    Lucy are you sure about that 4 month interval, between piercing, and earring replacement? I looked up the Piercing Pagoda website (a jewelry and ear piercing emporium in American shopping malls), and they say 4-6 WEEKS until you can change into new earrings.

  2. Whoa! I must have hiccuped!

  3. Sorry, I misunderstood. I need to clean the piercings twice-daily for at least four months, but can start using earrings as soon as the skin has healed - that would of course be much sooner. And I have very fast-healing skin.

    Do say more about your interest in this area!
