    Are you asking because you would like to apply to join as an Officer but your ears are pierced and you are worried that this might be a problem?

    Are you male or female?

    I think pierced ears and not wearing anything would attract lots of attention.

    Also not really recommended at this time of year.

    You would certainly not be allowed to wear anything in your ears, as a male RN officer. The only jewelery males can wear in the RN is a wedding/signet ring and even then at sea they are frowned upon due the potential of damaging your finger (De-gloving etc).

    As a male,no,however a cock ring or Prince Albert is de rigeur on some ships.

    And you would know this how then, Mr Only Ever Been to Sea on the Gosport Ferry?

    Ye I am. So as long as I don't wear anything in them they can b pierced?

    Yes, but why would you want to? You would have Her Majesty's Commission and yet you want to do an impression of Capt Jack Sparrow? Strange boy. Perhaps you would be better suited in some other walk of life.

    Don't listern to all these. There are certain people who can have ears done. The boarding officer for one. Goes back to the late 17C but you'll find it in the regs.

    Trust me I'm a PWO
