    Default Friend getting exactly the same piercings as me?

    I wasn't quite sure where to post this but I'd like some advice.

    I have my left rook, conch and traugs pierced. I showed one of my friends and she's decided to get exactly the same piercings done as me, on exactly the same ear. I wouldn't say my piercings are common, especially in my age range, let alone all three in the same ear. I'm not quite sure what to "do", I know there's nothing I can "do", considering she's getting the piercings regardless, but I'm quite annoyed to a certain extent. We're friends not twins. Help?

    There is nothing more irritating but I think you have have too feel happy in the knowledge she's copying you.. lol

    It is hard to be original these days and most people get inspired by what they see especially with body art/mods

    *If you dont want her to get them you could just say it was really painfull and they're giving you lots of problems.. see how she reacts then! lol

    Get a mandible piercing and see if she follows suit...

    On a more serious note, getting a piercing isn't a mark of originality. After all, there must be thousands and thousands of people with exactly the same combination of piercings as you. Don't worry. Just consider yourself a 'trendsetter' and move on

    You're fourteen, right? Things like that happened to me all the time when I was your age, not only with piercings...It pissed me off when I realised it but it passed soon... Then I realised how silly it is, and most of those people who I felt were copying me got over the things soon, taken piercings out etc...
    I'd say it's normal for teenagers to do that, she probably won't get them in the end or just get over them... you keep them and try not to get upset over it, just say to yourself that you got them first and you're better than her, haha :P

    26mm both lobes, 6mm second lobes, 6mm left inner conch, 8mm septum, 2.4mm inner labia, 1.6mm nipples, 1.2mm nostril

    Think up the most obscure and (especially) painful piercing you could get, then tell her you're going to get it cos it's quite unusual but really cool, but don't actually get it done, so she can suffer the pain and her ear will no longer be the same as yours.
    Something like a conch-rook-helix industrial, that'll be really painful and an utter bitch to heal.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Both lobes 1/2", 5mm, 1.6mm
    Left rook & 5mm helix punch
    Right helix x2 & forward helix
    VCH, 5mm tongue
