This is probably the amount of piercings Forth'Wyn will have in at least one ear, maybe a few less in the other. She's kinda sensitive about her ears because they're pointed, so I imagine all of the piercings are her way of making them more /her/.
"what not to do, piercings should be limited to one small stud in each ear. I think there should be 5 in each ear. I will not stop until I have my forward helix and additional cartilage piercings done.
