i got my first lobe piercings done about 12 years ago when i was little. i would like to get my second lobes done on both ears and possibly even a cartilage done on my right ear because my best friend has one and she said i should match her which doesn't seem that bad of an idea actually. i waited this long because i was a chicken about it since i kinda have this lame fear of needles
when i thought about it, i remember hearing multiple people say and reading so many things that cartilage piercings are very trashy and make girls (around my age; 20) look like a hooker, slut, whorebag, etc. does it? does it make a girl have a lesser chance getting a job, relationship, etc because she has 2 lobes and a cartilage piercing?
also, please leave your opinion on what you think of it because it's making me second guess this...
by the way, i don't dress trashy ever. i'm pretty casual with the way i dress. usually a pair of jeans and some kind of shirt, fancy or not, with a pair of vans, converse, etc is what i most commonly wear
here is a reference to go off of:
no i wouldn't have a heart earring as a cartilage. it's just a reference for the appearance of piercings, not what my earrings would look like (i'd probably go for studs instead of hoops/rings)

I think piercings of all kinds are dope. Since you're a gal I doubt you'd get any flack from a potential job when it comes to piercings anywhere on your ears. And I don't know about most guys, but I think piercings are nearly always attractive and look cute. There will always be a certain percentage of the population that looks down on all kinds of piercings, but with just on the ears you'll be pretty safe from scrutiny in most all scenarios, it's pretty normalized I think. I do have quite a bias, got an eye brow piercing, nose, and both ear lobes; just goes to show how much opinion varies but I imagine most enjoy or are indifferent to piercings. DO YOU AND OWN IT2

I don't see how anyone would think that looks trashy. I have a total of eight piercings in my ears, and have never had anyone look at me negatively because of it. Worst case scenario, you can always take them out for certain occasions. But I don't think it would even come to that. I've had a number of jobs, and never had an employer tell me that my piercings were an issue. As long as it's tasteful (like the picture), there's no problem at all.1
