Stretching Ear Lobe to 8g

Out of the 4 lobe piercings I have, I have successfully stretched three of them multiple times.  The largest is now 8g and began in a piercing that I've had for about 17 years now.  My mother took me to the mall when I was about 10 and I had my left lobe pierced with a gun.  Although there were never any major complications it remained a nusiance for the 2ish years that I wore it.  Knowing what I know now I'm not surprised.  Being young my mom did most of the aftercare for me including twisting the stud around ... 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 Inner Conch Piercing

After going to the local piercing studio to get the jewelry for my tragus piercings shortened and replaced, I immediately got the itch to get more ear piercings after having not had any piercings in nearly a year. I have several body piercings, but my ears are relatively bare, and that needed to be fixed. After some research and thought, I decided to get an inner conch piercing on my left ear. I like the way that inner conch piercings look because they are pretty subtle and tucked away, but you can also have it be really prominent by changing ... 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

My Rook Piercing

It’s hard for me to be away from my favorite piercing studio, Iris Piercing in Salt Lake City, and it is in fact a little dangerous for me. This is because if I go into the studio after not having had a piercing in awhile, I get an insatiable itch to get new piercings that doesn’t go away until I get them. So I decided to go ahead and get my rook pierced in my right ear after a few days of intense research and picture surfing. Usually once I want a piercing, it’s hard to get me out of ... read more

Third Conch's the Charm!

First off, this may be a little long, but I feel the need to explain some things before getting into the experience of my third conch. I don't want anyone to have to go through what I have been through, so please bear with me. I recently wrote another experience on here about my second conch piercing. I thought everything was going to be alright, I mean the place I went to seemed sterile, everything seemed clean and whatnot. But things took a turn for the worst.  Ever since the day I got my second conch piercing, it constantly felt ... read more

When Piercing Cartilage; The Pros and Cons

So, to start, I am a self professed piercing junkie. The majority of what I have resides on either my earlobes or the outer shell. As of now, I have one tragus, six cartilage, and 6 stretched piercings on my lobes. Two at 0's, two at 4's, and two at 6's (gauge). However, the one place I've always found to be a pain was my cartilage. I've pierced (or re-pierced) all six of my cartilage piercings and let me tell you, it never gets easier. The skin can swell, it can go bloody, the cartilage may be pierced through but ... read more

My wonderful conch piercing!

If you had asked me a few months ago about getting my conchs pierced I would have told you "There is no way in Hell that I am doing that!" I especially wouldn't of ever told you that I was getting both done. I had always thought of conch piercings as extreme and those that only heavily modded people got. They looked so painful and I just couldn't imagine doing that to myself. Well a couple months ago I had planned on making a trip up to Jacksonville, Fl to visit a few friends in April and as custom my friend Taylor and ... 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
