DIY Tragus

To begin with, I have this passion for body mods and once I get an idea in my head, it'll lurk there until I get it done. Needless to say I have experience it piercing both myself and others although I have yet to obtain the "professional piercer" title. Which is due to being under aged. Although I know this is something to look down on I do what I do simply because it is part of what I enjoy. Body modifications are a way of life, not some trend or a "cool" thing. You're either in it for the ... read more

The not so visible tragus piercing

Just like every other piercing that I have this was a spur of the moment piercing, minimal thought put into it, the usual for me. This is probably why I only have subtle, easily hidden piercings and no tattoos. I really have too many other things that I need to think about, getting a discreet piercing is fun and requires minimal thought, or at least that's how I like to think about it. Unlike other piercings which were basically minutes or hours after the thought first popped into my head there was actually a delay of a few days between ... read more

Tragus Piercing - all healed well.

Upon getting my tragus piercing, I had no idea what to expect. I had done no research on the piercing, and aside from thinking it was absolutely gorgeous on others, I had no idea about its pain level, or healing process. Even so, I was ecstatic to get this new piercing, and excitedly awaited the needle. I had a few problems with the piercing after due to my lack of knowledge, however, as soon as I knew what I was doing, all healed well! With this, I recommend doing this research. Though I must say, this impromptu piercing was one ... read more

Tragus Piercing

Roughly three months ago I decided to finally get my tragus on my left ear pierced.  I first noticed the piercing years ago at bars and clubs, mostly on girls, and I found it very attractive but always regarded it as more of a feminine look.  At the time I wasn't much into piercings; I'd had my left lobe done when I was around 9 or 10 at the mall but after about a year of my mom treating it all the wrong ways (getting it done with a gun, using conventional jewelry, cleaning with alcohol, etc) I got tired ... read more

My Right Tragus Piercing

Friday, July 16th, 2012, I went to All In Ink in SoCal to get a new piercing. I originally wanted a forward helix and a tragus piercing on my right ear, but my ears are too small for the forward helix piercing apparently, so I just went with the tragus. This was my first non-lobe ear piercing, but I've been researching piercings and body mods for years, so I wasn't really that nervous. I think that part of the reason I wasn't nervous is that, a few years back, I had a surface piercing on my thigh for about six ... read more

My Tragus Piercings

After a few months of not getting any piercings and having a piercing itch, I decided that for my 21st birthday that I wanted to get tragus piercings done on both ears. I was wary about getting them done originally because my parents aren’t exactly supportive of my piercing habit. So it took me some courage to ask my mother if she would be okay with me having these piercings as I knew there was no way that I would be able to hide them. At the time, she was unaware of all of my piercings with the exception of ... read more

Industrial and Tragus Piercings

This past summer, I spent a few weeks in England visiting a friend. I had decided before I left that I would get an industrial piercing to commemorate the experience. On our long drive far out into the English countryside from Heathrow Airport, I told her my plans and she was thrilled. In fact, she said that she had been interested in getting her tragus pierced. I had never considered that piercing before, but it wasn't long before I couldn't imagine NOT getting it pierced. Two days later, we headed into Banbury and went down a few wrong roads before ... read more

Do It Yourself Tragus

Now, let me start off by saying, it is never a good idea to do what I did. Ever. EVER. But, on to my stupid accomplishment. One night, at 1 am in the morning, listening to music, I started to feel inspirational. I had felt upset all day, and had cried a bit (ok, a LOT) so I wanted to start the new day out on a good note. What do I do but run around for a sewing needle? Instead of finding a precious sewing needle (and this should STILL not be used! But it's thicker, and more solid. ... read more

Double Tragus

I was always enchanted by tragus piercings and had decided that when I got the money I was going to get one; that was until I found pictures of a vertical tragus. The pictures I first saw were not true vertical tragus piercings, but surface piercings in the side burn area. Either way, I was in love. But as my excitement grew about getting this piercing I realized that my anatomy may not be suited for it. I went down to Immaculate Piercing (which is, by the way, freaking fantastic) to get a consult. Anna, the piercer, told me that ... read more
