I kind of like them. They're funky. What do you think?

If you like it, do it. Your ears.

Age is irrelevant. If you like it, get it.

Why not? I'm a 46 year old mum of 3 and had my tragus pierced a few months back. Went to the piercers with my teen dd and she didn't think I was embarassing grin

Up to you.

I love piercings.

18 or 99 if you want one get one smile

If you like it go for it. No judging here.

I had mine done at 21 and now am 45. I love it just as much now and have never regretted having it done.

The only time I've had any negative remarks was when I first had it done as it was more unusual then. Now loads of people have additional piercings so I can't see why having a helix done as a mum in her 30s would be an issue for anyone.

I was going to get a helix piercing done then I saw them described in the Daily Mail as 'the latest craze for middle aged women' which put me off somewhat as I was thinking it was a bit edgy grin

May go for these ones in the picture instead.

Don't let age define what you do!

I had mine done when I was 19, I'm 50 now. It's not considered young or edgy, so I doubt anyone would bat an eyelid tbh.

If you want it go for it. I've got 2 cartilage piercings in my left ear (as well as 2 lobe piercings in each ear). I got the 1st cartilage 1 done in January 2009, and the 2nd cartilage 1 done in May 2009. I love them. Age doesn't matter at all.
(I'd love a 3rd lobe piercing, but not sure if 5 in my left ear would look too much.
