Most men, due to a myth from many years ago, wear the men's earring in their left ear , since wearing it in the right was said to be for gay men. Nonsense, but it seems that it has stayed and I will tell you below how it was born, just out of curiosity.

But if you just wanted to know where to get your earring, you already know that there is a clear trend towards the left ear but nothing will happen if you do it on the right because you like it better.

The fashion for men's earrings is clear, and although there are many types of earrings for men, the winner is the hoop earring , which is usually worn as a helix or main lobe piercing.

Because putting a men's earring in the right ear meant being gay?

Nobody knows exactly how it originated that wearing a man's earring in the left ear is being Heterosexual and if you wear it in the other it is being Homosexual, it is as absurd as thinking that if you wear it in both ears you are Bisexual.

Even so, everything points to the fact that it was used as a code in the 60s and 70s to communicate, in the style of " hanky code " or handkerchief code.

As a curiosity I will tell you that the first to get a silver and gold piercing for men were our beloved pirates.

They believed that they brought them luck, wearing them gave them better vision and could even cure it. Also, if they were made of gold and perished at sea, he could pay for the burial once they found the body.
