Not sure how I feel about these




So, like when I saw these Tawapa earrings online, I loved them instantly. I love how sleek and modern they looked and the gentle curve of the shape of them, and I loved the bone ones especially because they were completely unadorned. I thought they would look like splinters of bones that would fame my face and it would look modern and primitive at the same time.


Lol i don't really know why my imagination failed me, because they kind of just look like stretching tapers. Like I'm stretching my ears and don't know what I'm doing. Especially since a significant chunk is supposed to stick out the front of your lobe. Like, I don't know why I looked at something that looked exactly like a taper and thought it would look like something other than a taper. 


You'll see that I've got to bend in a creative way for you to actually see the full length. Most of it just points back to my neck any you can't see it unless you're looking at it from the side. (below photos illustrate the odd way it sits in-ear). Not only that, since it points in a strange direction and is so long, you can't really wear it with other non-tusk earrings without it looking unbalanced and random:

lol excuse the shirt. I'm going for a gulag-chic look.

I kind of wished I got a second pair of the black tapers, because I guess the only way to wear these is to wear the same exact earrings in multiple lobe piercings (as I did with the bone ones and in the above gif).

Anyone have any recent fails?

  1. That is a funny angle, but maybe the point is that from the front they look small and plain? Like if one is facing a customer and then one looks more mundane? :D :D Odd. I have noticed that I have many many earrings but none which I like and want to actually wear. :( I should do some sort of a spring cleaning in my jewelry box.

    1. yeah, I've got two pairs that I wear constantly and lots and lots of "special occasion" stuff. lol there are no special occasions.

  2. They definitely look slightly odd. They also look like they poke the neck which would drive me nuts. I hate anything pokey or itchy.

    1. yeah, they are quite long and do poke. That doesn't really bother me, though they do end up falling out if I don't push them back in

  3. I see what you mean, they're too skinny or something. I could see it working better in multiples but on their own they're a tad underwhelming. This happens to me a lot with accessories; I'll imagine a necklace looking a certain way and then it turns out it's too small or too large. It's the pain of buying things online, I try things on in person if I can but there are the exceptions, like earrings, they won't let you wear those without buying lol.

  4. I actually do like the black ones, but I do agree that they kind of point to the neck at a weird angle. That is too bad, I hate when I order stuff online and it doesn't work out.

  5. So they also spike you in the neck? I like the heads on the dark tapers, but it is hard to see them once they are in!

  6. oh, too bad for the earrings, they kind of look out of place, though the black ones look pretty good. you should write an angry review on their website or something.
