If the Holy Bible clearly says that piercing is wrong (Leviticus 19:28: "do not tattoo yourselves or pierce your body to mourn the dead"), why is it alright to pierce the ears?

Actually ear piercing is not really alright. It has been an Egyptian custom from the time of the Pharaohs; and no one has really taken the initiative to advocate against it. Also the verse mentions piercing your body to mourn the dead which is not the case in ear piercing.
