Multiple ear piercing - is it chavvy??

So I've noticed that a lot of style bloggers are sporting multiple piercings lately.
I love the work of Maria tash.

In my early twenties I had 3 lower lobe piercings and the upper cartilage.
I stopped wearing them around 15 years ago.

Since noticing the trend I tried and was successful in getting a stud through all the existing holes. They don't hurt and no sign of infection despite being unused for so long,
So my question is - is it just a fad to wear multiple piercings??

At the moment I only ever wear a small diamond stud that we bought on honeymoon and I intend to wear two much smaller diamond studs alongside. I do not like hoops.

I'm not edgey in anyway and dress very much boden esqe in my mum uniform of Bretons and skinny jeans.

What is the consensus?? Will I look silly??

You can always buy ear climbers which are really fashionable at the moment without the need for extra piercing.
I wear studs or climbers but recently got a daith for migraine. It looks fine but I'm not sure I'd get other things done.

I think they look good on anyone- you can always take them out.

I'm impressed your holes stayed open, all of mine close up super quickly.

I actually got pierced at maria tash a few days ago, the jewellery is beautiful but some of it is mega expensive.

I've started wearing earrings again after 11yrs, figured 11yr old DD was finally old enough not to get hold of them, then on the first day she hugged me and caught one of my studs angry.
I have three piercings, none had healed over and I quite fancy a tragus one. I hate the term chavvy, so I'm not even going to answer that, but if you like them go for it.

I think multiple piercings are horrible and messy looking. It always looks as though the wearer is trying to upstage their face.

Scarlet...upstage your face?!

To answer your question in a slightly less controversial way...

Personally I would not consider multiple piercings to be a classy look.

I don't care if it is, I have two lobe and one cartilage in each ear and I love them!

They are mostly not seen as I wear my hair down almost always but I know they're there. Daft, but it makes me feel a bit edgier than just the mid thirties mum that I am grin
