Today (18th March) I had my ears pierced. First, I chose my earrings. I chose purple ones because they were my birth stones, Amethyst. 2nd, they cleaned my ears by swiping them with antiseptic cotton swipes, then they marked my ears with black dots so that they know where to pierce on the lobes, then they sprayed something cold and then they pierced my ears. It didn’t really hurt.
