Earrings one or both pierced on a guy

I'm thinking of getting piercings. I'm not sure what looks better one or both ears pierced. I'm also getting them pierced with 14k white gold diamond studs because they look the right size for my ears (not too big and obnoxious and not too small). Later on I might get a small silver hoop.

What looks better on a guy, one or both ears pierced?

    There's the problem.

    I like both, but either way is fine.... Once it suits your face of course

    Eh, I've got a friend who's got ear piercings, two small flesh tunnels. He's also got great luck with the ladies. Hot ones.

    I personally don't really like earrings on guys. I guess one looks better, but it always gives me the image of a wanna-be rapper or something..and for the love of all things holy in this world, gauges are the stupidest idea ever.

    That's what I generally think, but it certainly hasn't been a bad thing for my friend.

    Both ears pierced on a guy looks weird.

    And gauges are unappealing unless the face makes up for it.

    cc is not the place to ask for fashion advice (apparently).
  • ksarmandksarmand Registered User Posts: 2,743 Senior Member
    ^Well, duh. That much is obvious.
  • tiff90tiff90 - Posts: 1,370 Senior Member
    Both for sure
  • ginab591ginab591 Registered User Posts: 1,068 Senior Member
    One ear.
    Unless they're gauges, then get two, but don't get them too big.
  • spydersixspydersix Registered User Posts: 247 Junior Member
    I'll never get gauges. I'll either wear studs or have the hoop earings like Howie Mandel.

    I just got my second ear pierced the day before graduation ... 3 weeks ago. But I had my other ear pierced since I was 2.

    I would say as long as their small studs, you should be fine with a lot of people but apparently, the bigger studs and gauges are off setting for a lot of people when it comes to guys ....

    My best friend has small hoop earrings though, and they look good on him.

    IMO...Normally guys with 2 pierced ears look like tools. 1 looks fine to me...as long as it is relatively small and not so bling-bling-y
  • PunkchiquePunkchique Registered User Posts: 378 Member
    ehhh, I'd advise against hoops though...
  • BaelorBaelor Registered User Posts: 3,640 Senior Member
    I agree. Also, the company at which my father works basically has a ban on facial hair, piercings on males, etc. I don't know what the attitude toward things like that is in all industries, but it still appears to me that people at white collar jobs generally are expected not to have any "unusual" appearance characteristics. This may just be the places I've lived.
