Brittany Lewis 15 Dec 2009 Soc 110 Earrings About a month ago I decided to have my roommate pierce my cartilage. The only issue was that I had to find an earring that would not turn green because I had to keep the earring in for a long time so that the hole wouldn't close up and so that it would not get infected.
