Pierced!

For a while now I have been wanting to get a tragus piercing and last week I finally decided that I was going to get it done this weekend.  I searched around many piercing and tattoo shops and after much searching I came across the perfect shop with great reviews.  So yesterday afternoon nervously, but excitedly, I drove down there ready to get pierced.  Here is the result:




I had psyched myself up so much getting ready for the pain that when it was done, I didn't actually think it was that painful.  But then I can handle pain really well.  The ache and throb afterwards was worse and now my ear and jaw aches a bit but I suspect that will stop hurting after a few days.  I'm so glad I got this piercing as I love it and thinks it looks awesome!

Majorly hanging today as I went to the pub last night and had a few too many ciders and cocktails, then came home and proceeded to share a bottle of wine with a housemate.  Thus I went to sleep at 5.30AM.  Ahhh I love student life, might as well do stuff like that while I can!

  2. It looks great!! Make sure to take care of it and wash it with the solution they gave you - I didn't and it ended up getting a bubble on it that looked awful so I had to take it out :( my favorite piercing too! xoxo

  3. Well donnne! I had mine pierced a while ago and it healed fine until i tried to shove an earphone in about 4 months later. It ended up going a bit swollen and I got so irritated that i couldnt get my finger in my ear (dont even ask) that i took it out in a moment of madness. Yours looks lovely. Just be careful with headphones! :)

    1. Eeeek that sounds a bit scary! I will be sure to be careful with headphones! Don't think I'll be putting an earphone in that ear for a while, just because I'm very meticulous with infection and keeping it clean haha.

  4. I got this piercing when I was 15 and honestly felt like it was the most painful experience of my life lol, you definitely must handle pain well! I had trouble with mine for ages getting infected and being sore, I think its where I was lying directly on it when I was sleeping. But it all turned out ok and I still have it almost 10 years later with no problems x

    1. Haha really? I did find it painful. But nothing that I couldn't handle :D
      Ahh yes I have been reading that sleeping on that side can irritate so I have been sleeping on the other side which is annoying!
      Glad yours is ok now though!
