    Besides what International Male offers, does anyone know where to buy men's earrings, for non-pierced ears, that are NOT the cuff variety? Looking for the regular variety worn on the lobe.

    Unfortunately, job is far too conservative to get ears pierced.

    I have a 10 year old cousin who wanted earrings, but her parents felt she was too young. Â So I found her these magnet earrings - they look like studs - on St. Marks in NYC. Â I'm sure you could find them at those trinket stores they have in malls, like Claire's. I would like to point out that I bought these for a ten year old girl. Â I try not to judge other people's taste, and never more than right now.

    LOL. Okay, I'll concede that that was kind of wierd, but I think that the shirt actually turned out pretty well. Besides, that type of deconstructionist/reconstructionist idea gets a lot of serious play by lots of designers. I just happened to take the idea to one of its logical conclusions by using the very best of finished product (albeit with some flaws already) as the raw material.

    The earring thing though, I don't know. I actually think that unconventional piercings are kind of cool (I don't have any, but I think that eyebrow rings can look good on the right person.) An earring, though, and a non-piercing one at that, and especially on a guy whose day job is too conservative for any form of visible piercing whatsoever, is sort of like having sex halfway - not particularly satisfying for anyone.

    But seriously, earrings on a guy make me think of pirates and a particularly obnoxious pro-wrestler guy with a shaved head, no neck, and a made-for-the-WWF voice whom I had the good fortune of seeing on an episode of Blind Date once. I imagine that the poor girl had shown up late for her interview and parked in the producer's spot, or something.

    I dunno- pierced body parts look awfully painful.

    Also, LAG, you'll see on my post from another thread that I have a pierced ear, so I'm not OBJECTIVE.

    It's been quite a while since I wore anything in it, but I've been thinking about it lately...And your disdain will not sway my actions. As Bill the Cat would say AAACCKKKPHHHPPTTT

    BTW- Gonna watch Lakers- Kings tonite?

    I remember a while back you posting on this. Is there any why to post a pic? It sounds really interesting.
