SOME INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT EAR LOBE PIERCINGS

The practice of ear lobe piercing dates back at least 5,000 years. We know this because the world’s oldest found mummified body (the “Iceman”) had pierced earlobes that had been stretched to somewhere between 7-11mm.

Since the days in which the Iceman lived, ear piercings have made regular appearances throughout history. Ancient Persian wall murals depict warriors with pierced ears, and even the Bible mentions Israelites wearing earrings. Fast forward to the 16th century, when men’s earrings gained popularity and became a symbol of virility in France and Spain.

Today, earrings are so fashionable that even baby ear piercing isn’t unusual.
