Did you hear that? Well, you shouldn’t have. Now you will be punished.
One historian, (according to surfindia.com) believes that piercing ears was punishment for hearing things that you weren’t supposed to.
“According to legend, evil spirits were thought to be able to enter the body through any of its openings and take control. The first earrings were probably worn to bar the way to these spirits.
According to another folklore pierced earrings help to strengthen weak eyes. If set with emeralds, they are particularly effective. Gold earrings are often worn by those wishing to cure headaches, though some say to wear one gold earring and one silver for this purpose.” -sufindia.com
