And they are being our companions for long time ago … ear piercing is one of the oldest forms of body modification or as I call it body decoration 😉 so we have to go back to the ancient Persia to find their origin :O

But they only become fashionable in the 1590s, in the 60s were popular between hippie and gay communities and in the 80s men started piercing both ears who can forget does days!!! J

 Here is a very graphic way to show al the types of earrings that we have now a days

Image1 = Helix – 2 = Industrial – 3 = Rook – 4 = Daith – 5 = Tragus – 6 = Snug – 7 = Conch

8 = Anti-Tragus –  9 = Lobe
