It’s understandable that you feel guilty for not telling your mom about getting your ears pierced, especially since it goes against the religious rules you grew up with. It sounds like you made the decision to get pierced after doing research and considering it carefully, but it’s also understandable that your mom would be upset by the news.

Perhaps you could try to talk with your mom and explain your thought process in getting your ears pierced. Let her know that you didn’t mean to hurt her or disregard your religious upbringing, but that you wanted to make a personal choice about your own body. It’s possible that she just needs some time to adjust to the change and process her emotions.

At the end of the day, it’s important to remember that you have the right to make your own choices and decisions about your body, but it’s also important to respect your family’s beliefs and values. Finding a balance between the two can be challenging, but open communication and understanding can go a long way.
