A YOUNG woman ignored her friends’ pleas to stop wearing such heavy earrings and it cost her her earlobes.
Nicole Tjeran has a permanent rip in her ear after the weight of one pair of hoops tore through her lobe.
The 21-year-old said that it “makes her feel sick”.
Nicole still has piercings in other parts of her ear but a vertically gaping hole where her first lobe piercing used to be.
The hole is mostly obvious when she pulls her ear to the side.
Nicole took to Tik Tok to share the experience and admitted that she should have listened to her friends when they told her to take the earrings out.
