I don't know. I think it looks ridiculous, and even more ridiculous on an older man (50's and older).

Well I guess that does it, I'm ending my year knowing I'm not cool or don't possess "the cool gene" because my ears aren't pierced. Your comment is even more ridiculous than the actual wearing of the earrings.

Roger that. I feel the same way about tattoos and can't wait for that stupid fad to run its course. How anyone thinks permanently scarring your body is "cool" is beyond me???

One small earring is fine on a man. An earring in each ear looks silly. Those ear stretchers look like they were taken from third world countries. As a sophisticated society, why would we go out of our way to look primitive?

I think in a few years a job in the tattoo removal business will be profitable. Tattoos will fall into the, "WTF was I thinking?" category.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Well, I don't see any sign of a "cool gene" in this post. No sign at all

The wildest tail I've heard on earrings was from singer Glenn Campbell. When he was starting out, one of the fads was for men to wear a hoop earring. Fight broke out in the bar he was singing in one night. Somebody grabbed his hoop earring and yanked it out. Said he'd never wear another one!
