Classy people do not modify their bodies with bolts, spikes, balls, hoops, bones or anything else that did not grow out of them. It may be tempting to stretch ones earlobe and place a hoop in it, but sport games already have their nets, hoops and pockets to play with. Your ear hoop is unnecessary.
I suppose it could be used for carrying small bird. Shoulders are traditional of course, but if one does not wish to look like a pirate, a tiny bird perched within ones floppy earlobe might be convenient. However, I would not recommend such a permanent modification on the off-chance that one also owns a bird with wanderlust.
Attention is good, if earned for the right reasons. Publishing a book, singing a song, defending a small child from a ravenous Brussels Griffon Terrier – these are deeds worthy of attention. But having saggy nipples due to the railroad ties shoved through them, connected to a ring in ones bellybutton by a chain made of the same metal used for the spikes sticking out of ones collarbone while reeking from the bodily secretions accumulating within ones new holes, are not.
