I’m sure many of you have the issue of removing earrings or always wearing studs in the right ear to prevent rattling against the harp. I’d like to get a cartilage piercing & I think it would be nice to get one or two in the right ear, since I always have to wear smaller earrings on that side for harping. However, I’m not sure if that would also make noises against the harp and I’d have to be constantly conscious of it while I was playing? I realise this is a slightly unorthodox question but does anyone have any experience with this? Am I better off getting the left ear done instead?
Hello Maya, I have both ears pierced all the way up my ear-I have always used studs and never had an issue with them rattling against the harp. I’m sure if you use very small hoops they shouldn’t be a problem either. Best wishes!
