THE RULES…..and when to break them!
How old is too old for multiple piercing trend?
After consulting with friends young and old, I have finally concluded that the golden rule of style is….now wait for it….it’s pretty amazing and very simple and something I should have listened to 30 years ago from my wise mother…. Do whatever makes you feel beautiful and confident!!!
I’m approaching my 48th birthday and when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I have to admit I’m a little dazed by my reflection….don’t get me wrong, I love me and all the wrinkles that are a part of me, but I have to admit the person looking back at me doesn’t feel like me, inside I still feel as fresh and as vibrant as I did in my twenties…..which brings me back to the most inspirational woman in my life…..my mother, who often told me and everyone else “you’re only as old as you feel” and as cringe worthy as it sounds, a truer a word I’ve never heard. And as there is no law that prevents us from expressing ourselves through our own individual appearance through multiple piercings, tattoos etc, my thoughts are firm that every woman and man of a certain age has every right to do so, without being judged.
All you need is confidence confidence confidence and a little know how on how to create your own individual look. Don’t over do your accessories to the point where it becomes a blur as that will surely drown you in the style pool…. I mean, even the gorgeous fashion queen of the 80’s Madonna wouldn’t have been able to adorn every finger, every inch of her neck, arms and ears and pull it off. 😉 The smaller the jewellery the more of it you can wear on any one given place of your body and for me, it has to be my ears!!
So, if you ever find yourself asking the question “ Am I too old to get a piercing?” I say absolutely NOT… you need to remember that there comes a point in all our lives, where we have passed the “growing up” stage, where we’ve got married, bought our homes, had our kids and are now back to where we were 30 years ago enjoying who we are as our own individual selves and if that means having multiple piercings, tattoos or jumping out of planes etc….I want to shout it out loud and clear….. These activities are NOT just reserved for the young!
Anyone can get pierced!
Anyone of any age can get pierced (… Except minors in some cases)!
Anyone of any size can get pierced!
PIERCINGS ARE FOR EVERYONE!
