hey guys,
im a guy, and in my religion, i need to pierce one of my ears. when i told my friends, one guy told me not to pierce the wrong side, or that shows ppl im gay. i am not gay, so which side should i pierce? i had no idea something like this existed, and if it does, i don't want ppl to think im gay!

thanks

    I believe if you pierce your right ear it means you are gay. My friend is Scottish and has his left ear pierced for that reason (??) so I'm pretty sure that's right. I wouldn't go dashing off to pierce your right ear, though, without some more input.

    The whole left ear versus right ear pierced thing is ridiculous, haha.

    does getting your ears pierced hurt? (ok ill admit it, im a tiny bit nervous)

    any confirmations on getting left ear pierced over right?

    earring studs on just left ear, or both ears?

    I've only heard about it once before. I pretty sure that it's the right ear that is supposedly making you gay, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Left. But really just for the sake of it, if you're gonna go with a random one.

    right is 100% the gay one
    pierce the left one if you're really that homophobic.

    Not a bit. It's just like a little pinch. Most guys I know have both ears pierced nowadays though.
  • catsushicatsushi Posts: 1,970Registered User Senior Member
    Yup, I have it confirmed from my friend. The left is the one you want to pierce.
  • rohinrohin Posts: 195Registered User Junior Member

    thanks!

    Omg, the whole right-ear gay piercing is so over. NOBODY actually thinks that any more. I'd say pierce what ever ear is opposite of your dominant hand (ie if you're a righty, pierce the left) because it makes the earrings easier to put in, especially if you're going to gauge at all.
