Ear piercing is one of the oldest known forms of body modification, with artistic and written references from cultures around the world dating back to early history. Early evidence of earrings worn by men can be seen in archeological evidence from ancient Persia, but in modern times, it is more common that the client walking through your door is a female wanting her ears pierced for a second set of earrings, or wanting her baby daughter’s ears pierced.
In the late 1960’s, ear piercing began to make inroads among men through the hippie and gay communities, although they had been popular among sailors for many years. Traditionally, a right-side piercing identified a man as gay and left-side as straight. Both sides pierced is very fashionable in men these days, and has no connotation for sexuality.
Identification and analysis of the client’s face and ear shape and size will help you to recommend suitable earrings and appropriate placement. Ultimately the choice of earrings is the client’s, but your personal recommendations will usually be appreciated by your clients, and their health and safety should always be of paramount concern.
