Sucessful Tragus!

3 months ago I decided to get my tragus pierced. It wasn't an impulsive decision in that I have wanted it for years, but impulsive in that I decided I was going to do it that day and that was that It wasn't my first major piercing (I'd had a nose ring for three years and a tongue for two) but it was my first in two years, I normally live in a town with one crappy piercing studio and after getting my nose pierced there with an ear piercing gun I decided taking the short cut is a dumb ... read more

Conched

t, here's the story of my conch piercing experience: It was a Friday night, and my mom suddenly decided that I wasn't allowed to go out. She says to me, "going to a concert on a school night is priviledge enough." (I went to see Sevendust the night before. Holy shit what a great show.) Anyway, I was pretty frustrated seeing as how there was a party going on and of course I wasn't allowed to go. Lucky me. By now, my friends are going to think I am some sort of a masochistic psycho, but I don't mind. Pain ... read more

A college student's experience

n eighteen year old female college freshman attending a college far away from home. When I was seven years old, my ears were pierced for the first time by my doctor. I got my ears pierced in exchange for undergoing very painful allergy testing. Then when I was thirteen, I got my ears pierced for a second time, this time at a local mall. Ever since then, I have wanted to get more holes pierced in my ear lobes, but my parents would not let me. My desire to get pierced again was further enhanced by my mom getting a ... read more

I'm nowhooked on piercing!

nally hooked on piercings! I just got my second one, a tragus piercing, I love it already! It's only been in for like 6 hrs., but it's already stopped bleeding, and rather painless. My first was my belly buton, about 3.5 months ago. I'm from a rather large city, so bellybutton piercings were rather common placed, but of course, my parents hated it! They didn't even like the idea of me having a regular cartledge piercing. I finally got up the guts to go to the shop a few days after some of my friends went. I grabbed a friend ... read more

A Warning about Cartilage Piercings

ing about Cartilage Piercings! If you read no further, just read this: DO NOT get your ear cartilage pierced with an ear-piercing gun! My ear is ruined. I know that plenty of people get their cartilage pierced with a piercing gun, and the piercings turn out fine. I, for one, had one perfectly good cartilage piercing done with the gun, so I know how you might think it's safe to be pierced with the gun. Well, it's not! I went to get my second cartilage piercing done in June 1998. I was having it done in the same ear as ... read more

Lobe streaching done easily and mathematically.

st piercing was a simple earlobe job done with a gun by a former roommate who worked at Claire's Boutique. If I had known then what I know now, I would never have gone there, not even for earlobe piercing. Quickly I learned that an ear piercing stud and butterfly clip are about the nastiest thing you can have in your ear. I switched to a 14 gauge captive bead ring and have have used that one or a couple others with decorative beads in my ear since... Up until yesterday. I constantly pull and tug on my earring or ... read more

(Inner?) Helix pierce and loving it.

a bit of time after a failing tragus pierce I was debating on what I could possibly get in my ear that was still somewhat original and looked better than what I'd already had. I considered helix, daith, rook, and conch. Conch I decided I didn't like anymore, rook looked too crusty on one of my friends, and Sara (my piercer) explained that the daith was extremely painful, so I opted for the inner helix (I'm not sure if that's the right term, I've seen it used several ways, but it is located right above the tragus...) I'd already been ... read more

Maybe I Should Jokingly Ask my Parents More Often...

ngly asked my mom one-day if I could get my cartilage pierced, and to my surprise she said yes. I was so excited, I had wanted it done for a long time. I told all of my friends, they were like 'I know your mom wants to take me to get mine done too' (their parents must not be as cool as mine). My sister and I looked at jewelry just for the fun of it (She was going to get her belly button pierced, she jokingly asked too!) So a few weeks later we went to get it pierced, ... read more

...and my tragus makes 8

her always told me that she thought getting your ears pierced was barbaric. That only fueled the fire and make me want my ears peirced even more. It took me a few years of whining adn begging to be good and do all my chores for her to relent and let me get my ears pierced. I got the regulation first peircing done at a mall with the piercing gun when I was 13. It was uneventful and healed quickly. My second was done on a really boring Friday with my sister and a needle from mom's sewing kit. The ... read more

now where can i find a safety pin...

s the story of two self ear-piercings, completed rather inexpertedly my good self some months back. it all started around two months ago, when i got angry. gradual frustrations over the previous few weeks had left me, well, frustrated, and i needed to do something drastic. i'd been planning on getting some extra piercings in my right ear, to balance the two studs in the cartilage of my left ear (done with a gun... ah, me.) i believe i was sitting in science fuming to myself when i came up with the idea... so i mentioned it to a few ... read more
