Welcome to Gaia! ::

I've heard that a single earring in your left ear is a sign of being gay. Does the same go for eyebrow piercings? What are the signs for them?

Side topic: Are there other piercing meanings you know/heard of?

Not unless you're in 3rd grade.

An eyebrow piercing doesn't mean anything to anyone with any kind of maturity. It's not like you're tattooing "I'M A HOMOSEXUAL" on your face.
only if you want it to.

Hn asking around it seems those in high school haven't a clue about it.
But those older say it's left means gay. Maybe it's just an old school thing?

Piercings don't have any meanings, other than the meaning you give them personally.

I haven't heard anything about the eye brow one.

Well, but the toncue piercing thing actually makes a bit of logical sense...

@OP:Unless you're, like, 10, no, it doesn't.

I don't see tha "logic" in it.

Well, er...What are tongue piercings good for, if not for adding sensation? I mean, it's not something you even get to see a lot, since ones mouth is generally closed.
I didn't say it was good logic, or that I agreed with it, but at least it has some reasonable reason behind it. There isn't any possible explanation I can think of for the gay side/straight side thing.
Well for a girl it would make you look tough, so you might get alittle more attention from girls, rather than guys. x3
Yes, it means you are mall metal.

Gay men used to wear an earring in their left ear so they could advertise their sexuality in an underground manner without being beaten up for it. It was a way of letting other gay men know that you were gay x

This is news to me. All I knew about was the hanky/bandana thing...

The earing thing was more in the 80s I think.
