Are Multiple Ear Piercings Unprofessional?

Planing for an ear piercing? Wait! is it multiple ear piercings? I guess you are confused about whether it looks professional or not. If yes, then you are absolutely in the right place.

Ear Piercings are one of the most trendy and famous types of facial piercings. You can pierce your ear lobe or any part of your ear multiple times. Piercing is one of the most demanding fashion trends. It not only makes you look fashionable but also makes you confident from inside.

The trend of Piercing face and body is age-old. The purpose of piercing has changed a lot. But the feel and some ways of getting it done are very similar even now.

I personally love piercing my ears and nose too. But some cultures, rituals, and society limit you to get it done the way you want it. Some believe that particular piercing should be done after a particular age or stage of life.

But in today’s word, there are some thoughts and opinions of others that limit you. One of the most important reasons is your priorities too. You choose to look simple and professional as people want you to look. In my view, you should do whatever you like to. Wear jewelry that suits you. Get a piercing that compliments you the best. That’s it.

Are Multiple Ear Piercings Unprofessional?

No multiple ear piercings are not unprofessional for piercers or people related to the fashion world.

Well, my answer will be both Yes and No. It mostly depends on your profession and your choice of piercing jewelry.

Ear piercings are accepted in all most all professions. If you are a professional piercer, tattoo expert, or even a seller of similar items, it will be more professional to you.

But it must be simple and not too bold for some professions. If there are a strict dress code and rules to appear in your office, you should strictly follow them.

Ear piercings are mostly acceptable if it is of good quality and simple. It should go to your office attire and the environment too. You should not look too bold and flashy.

Basically, it is all about execution. Even if your office dress code is simple and formal, small studs or hoops can look just simply professional.

Bold, cheap, and flashy jewelry makes you look ostentatious for everyday work. It distracts you and even everyone in the office. You might feel uncomfortable too.

Multiple ear piercing would not look unprofessional until you wear simple, high-quality jewelry in it. Please keep in mind flashy jewelry are not for office.

Try your stud or hoop before giving it a green signal. Try it with your office dress and see whether it looks too flashy or just perfect to go.

Is Multiple Ear piercing Classy or Trashy?

Interestingly, I would say most of the time multiple ear piercing looks trashy. Or whatever you may call it as opposed to classy.

It can be classy only on occasions where people expect it to be like this. You can think of a party or a fashion show where multiple ear piercing may earn you more attractions and yes, it is positive.

On the other hand, if you wear multiple ear piercing or an industrial piercing to your office then you probably gonna find its negative side, you better know what I mean.

Multiple ear piercings are good unless until you attract unnecessary attention to yourself- It will be an awkward situation indeed.

You may get neutral reactions for your multiple piercing especially fro your loved ones but for others, it is a way different world of sarcastic ideology. Mind it I have faced it many times.

How are double ear piercings viewed in the professional world?

Professional always keep is simple and smart. Double ear piercing can be a good choice but you should choose the simple piercing as well as jewelry too.

If it is a double earlobe, it is totally fine. Choose high-quality studs or hoops for both the piercings. Stay away from the cheap jewelry, it not only looks unprofessional but also can give you painful infections.

Double ear piercings like a double helix, rook, or even conch look good. Thinking about a professional look, you should stay away from gauging or industrial piercings.

Just as simple earlobe piercing, multiple ear piercings are common these days. Double and triple ear piercings are common among multiple ear piercings.

If you are someone who is connected with the fashion world somehow, you need to expose yourself, you should definitely pick the piercing that enhances and expose your characters.

On the other hand, jobs like office or bank don’t allow all types of piercings. You can only wear jewelry that is not too flashy or funky.

But this isn’t meant that being a working professional you cannot go with trends. Industrial piercing jewelry looks so flashy. Earlobe gauging looks too bold and can be distracting.

You can choose your jewelry wisely. And the best thing about piercings is that you can change it according to your convenience.

You can ask your coworkers, whether the particular jewelry is suitable for you or not. Going for earlobe gauging or piercings like industrial, please do not forget to take permission from your boss first.

Even if you get permission, it will always suggest you go with the jewelry that suits your dress code as well as the office environment.

No, until it is not too funky or flashy. I think now piercings are accepted for both men and women. No matter you are a male or female, you can definitely get your ear pierced.

Some countries like India where piercings and jewelry are only for women. Men feel hesitant to wear or even choose jewelry for themselves.

But now, even there the trend is on fire. You can now see men with ear piercings almost everywhere. Not all but many are getting their ear pierced.

But keep changing your earrings every day at least twice is not possible all the time. So, the last option is to take off your jewelry when going to work.

It is really easy to remove and change the jewelry. But be sure your piercing is healed completely. If it is still healing, you can hurt it while taking it out or changing it.

Even your piercing hole gets closed within a few hours. And there is a high risk of getting infections while changing your jewelry in a hurry. Take your time to clean your hands and jewelry before wearing it.

It is always better to choose the best quality, simple, smart, and comfortable sized jewelry.

Can Ear piercing affect me getting a job?

No! in my view ear piercings should not affect your job. Ear piercings are the most common and trendy piercings. The first choice of almost every piercing lover is the ear-piercing.

If it is an ear piercing, it actually doesn’t matter anything ing getting a job. But the presentation and execution is the most important thing, especially if you are going for a job interview.

For example, you have a simple ear lobe piercing with a flashy huge earring in it. This can make your negative image in front of the interviewer. He/ she might think you are careless and irresponsible or you have very bad fashion taste.

You can lose your job due to ostentatious jewelry and your way of wearing it. I simple words, piercings are totally normal to get but showy jewelry is not a good choice for all situations.

Piercing ears is necessary for some cultures. Even there are many different rituals for men, women, kids, and adults in different cultures. This is the reason why ear piercing is accepted for most of the professions.

Can I get my ears pierced 15 days before a job interview?

No, you should not! I will never suggest you pierce your ears a few days before your interview.

If you are searching for a job and planning to get a piercing, it will always be better to wait. Just wait until you get that job or you pass the final interview.

I suggest you stay away from piercings just to avoid unnecessary pain and troubles. Piercing healing takes a little time. You might not perform your best with that wound.

You can get multiple ear piercings anytime.  Just wait until you get your job. Do not take permission from your office before getting it done.

On the other hand, if you already have ear piercing or multiple ears piercings, you can keep it simple and smart. Wear high-quality jewelry, Small, not too brightly colored or funky. Try to keep it formal that matches the office environment.

If you are not sure whether your ear piercing jewelry is suitable for a job interview or not, you can simply take it off. Taking your jewelry off for a few hours will not be an issue. make a smart choice and let nothing affect your job.
