I started wanting them done when I was 7 because the very glamous girl in my class (she of the waist length hair) got hers done and I liked the way they looked. Mum said "when you're 16". Over the years it went down to 15, and then back up to 16. I finally got them done on the last day of year 8, when I was 13. Set 2 + top of my right ear came on the last day of my GCSEs when I was 16. 3rd piercing in right ear when I was 19, belly button when I was 20 (since closed up but I'm thinking of having it done again), tattoo when I was 22, nose attempt 1 at 26 (closed up when I took it out for school) and nose attempt 2 at 28 (still there; I wear a clear one for school). I wear really small studs in my lobes (children comment on how small they are!), a small silver hoop in the top of my ear and either a clear stud or a tiny silver stud in my nose. And I am not a chav at all!
