These days, it is not uncommon to see ears full of mixed and matched piercing combinations, from industrial bars to rooks to tragus hoops. I, too, am guilty of having ears full of novelty single ear piercings and to be honest, I've been itching for another (currently on the fence about starting a triple forward helix).
As many preteens do, I began begging my mom for more piercings at age 12. A few straight-A report cards later, she rewarded me with a trip to get my second holes at Claire's in the mall, where I was on display for all to see that needle gun puncture my precious lobes.
Since then I've joined the ranks of other women sporting ears adorned from cartilage to lobe in the most unique piercings and jewelry. There doesn't seem to be a spot left where you can't rock some gorgeous earrings these days. When you're dying for some serious ear candy that'll drive you to the nearest piercing parlor, get inspiration from these 15 single piercing earrings.
