Hahaha, well you know, just to have a potato around! Can never have too many potatoes!
I think you freeze it first and it helps the numbing. I also think it's easier to pierce if there is a sturdy potato behind your floppy ear.

Ohh, I didn't know it helped with numbing. I thought people just did it for ear-support. xD

Yea, well if you freeze it first it'll numb your ear Elizabeth.

Elizabeth, that was my first thought too, that the potato was like some kind of support so you didn't stab into your head or something. o.O

Haha! I'm the oddball here. Never had any piercings! Don't really want any either. I'd be afraid of getting a branch stuck on them when I'm in the woods.

I had them pierced in 3rd or 4th grade but they got infected and closed up. Pierced them again later and then got a second set in junior high. But I almost never wear earrings unless it's something really special like, oh say, Hugh Jackman's concert on Broadway.

On top of that, they're pierced lopsided too.

Elizabeth, I get infections really easy too even when I wear sterling silver. One of the reasons why I never wear earrings.

It was always guns. I felt like they were stapling my ear, lol.

Edit: That's how I am, too, Sakura. My parents paid for the sterling silver ones to try to keep it from getting infected.. but nope. Still did xD I had them pierced when I was little, about 12, and about 15. The hole is still there, except grown over; I'd have to re-poke it.
