LIFE HACK for all my pierced babes out here tryna get jobs
(or for if you just have a pair of normal stud earrings you want to get some use out of)
So they sell these flesh tone plugs (you know, using “flesh tone” super lightly bc obviously not everyone is Whitey McWhiterson like me) that are supposed to be “retainers” to hide your stretched ears. But even if you get a decent skin tone match, they really don’t hide anything, they just look like you have giant plugs and bad taste.
But the thing about the silicone is that it’s super soft, so you can actually puncture it with a normal earring stud!
So all you have to do is find an earring big enough to cover (or at least distract from) the plug and then viola!
Where’s that pierced delinquent who sent in her resume? Hiding behind that professional young lady we’re about to hire, THAT’S where!
And an extra cool thing about it is that the silicone is sort of self-healing, so you don’t really damage it or wear it out by “piercing” it, so you can just get one pair and then wear however many different earrings you want with the same plugs.
I don’t remember how much the plugs initially cost, but as you can see from the example I linked, you can get them for less than $10, and these flower earrings I got at Hot Topic for $3, so it’s all pretty low cost too.
