Growing up with parents who have a very traditional and conservative mentality, anything to do with body modification (tattoos, piercings, radical hairstyles etc.) was a big massive no-no in my household - which, looking back, I am now very thankful for! But I think everyone goes through that rebellious stage when they're younger, where they want to experiment and try new things out of their comfort zone, but with little consideration to the long lasting effects of these decisions.
Being a goody two shoes throughout my teenage years (for the most part anyway), as soon as I got to university I decided to take my first ever rebellious step and get an ear cuff (so badass, right?). I was so obsessed with it, I would show it off at every opportunity! However, three years on and I have had to get the piercing redone three times; whenever I brushed my hair, the hoop would get caught on the hair brush's bristles and would fall off, it would also catch on to things such as loose knits, or simply open up whilst I slept. If I forgot to re-insert the piercing on the same day, by the next morning the hole would have already closed up! It was such a hassle at times, but ultimately it was all well worth it, I was in love with my cute little silver hoop!
