His ears, his decision.

pinkieandperkie Sun 13-Nov-16 13:26:52

How old is he?

SirChenjin Sun 13-Nov-16 13:27:07

Once I stopped laughing?

welshgirlcharlotte Sun 13-Nov-16 13:27:40

He's 42 - but looks younger!

Bertucci Sun 13-Nov-16 13:27:42

Did you laugh? I would laugh.

Bertucci Sun 13-Nov-16 13:28:06

42! I would definitely laugh.

Mid-life crisis?

welshgirlcharlotte Sun 13-Nov-16 13:28:26

I though he was joking! I have visions of him sitting on a stool in Claire's Accessories!!smile

OnionKnight Sun 13-Nov-16 13:28:53

His ears, his choice, I have three ear piercings.

ElspethFlashman Sun 13-Nov-16 13:28:53

Tell him he can pierce any bits of his own body he wants.

and pray he doesn't return with a Prince Albert

pinkieandperkie Sun 13-Nov-16 13:29:21

Mid-life crises maybe?

welshgirlcharlotte Sun 13-Nov-16 13:30:39

Maybe mid-life crisis, I agree there his wares. Just wondered what everyone thought - thanks for the comments!

SirChenjin Sun 13-Nov-16 13:31:34

42?? Oh dear... grin

Obviously you can't stop him, but I'm guessing you'd rather he didn't?!

Vagabond Sun 13-Nov-16 13:32:22

If it's just one ear, you have hope. Barely.

To me.... well, I just hope it doesn't happen to my man.

Can't he pierce his scrotum or something?

Bertucci Sun 13-Nov-16 13:32:22

Hideously, and unreasonably sexist of me - but I think men with pierced ears look absolutely ridiculous. Especially middle aged men!

Vagabond Sun 13-Nov-16 13:33:28

Evidence: Harrison Ford.

Just NO

ElspethFlashman Sun 13-Nov-16 13:35:46

It might be ok if he goes to a proper piercing place and gets a solid bit of silver.

Anything but a dainty gold sleeper!

EllenJanethickerknickers Sun 13-Nov-16 13:36:21

It's a slippery slope. Next it will be a motorbike, you mark my words.

Alfiemoon1 Sun 13-Nov-16 13:42:40

His body his choice but I think middle aged men with their ear pierced look ridiculous

SirChenjin Sun 13-Nov-16 13:47:08

He's having an affair for sho

Ilikegin Sun 13-Nov-16 13:49:18

Oh dear! When you say ears.. Does he actually want both doing? Even Lewis Hamilton cannot pull off this look..
Heaven forbid he wants diamond studs! grin

Bertucci Sun 13-Nov-16 13:49:37

SirChenjin - you have totally just reminded me of my friend's dh who suddenly had both a tattoo and his ear pierced. He was having an affair.

Bluntness100 Sun 13-Nov-16 13:49:57

I think it depends on his personal style, for example is he a heavily tattooed biker and wants one ear done.

If he's a fairly standard dressing bloke then it's like trying to recapture his youth amd he will look a bit daft. But it is his ears.

HugoBear Sun 13-Nov-16 13:50:37

A leather waistcoat will be next. Just say no.
