When pirates wore earrings, they weren't just trying to look fashionable. According to National Geographic, sailors believed that applying pressure to the earlobe would keep them from getting seasick. In many cases, the pirates would do so by putting on an earring. Unfortunately, while your inner ears affect your sense of balance, wearing earrings in your earlobes does not affect seasickness.
