How Many Ear Piercings Do You Have? Let's just say during my college days, I was a big fan of Claire's ear piercing specials. Although I technically have five holes in my ears, only two of them are currently in the "active" state. In recent times, Kate Moss has been sporting some hoops, studs, and chandelier styles galore, wearing six earrings in one ear and two in the other. How many times has that piercing gun hit your ears?
