}090{ Tragus Piercing!

Well, surprise! I got another piercing. I’ve been wanting it done for sometime but I wanted to get both of them done at once. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out that way. Still in the same position and need to be able to wear earbuds so I just got my left one done. I think when/if I can I’m going to get two done in my right.

So, I of course had this pierced on December 22nd so it’s still fairly new! Got stabbed at an 18g (so I could get it done that day and have some sexy anodized Neometal jewellery). So I have a nice sexy threadless 18g Neometal post and 3mm white opal cabochon gem end anodized purple. Unfortunately, you can’t see a lot of that color since only a bit is exposed – but trust me it’s gorgeous. Actually, see the jewellery by itself!

Here’s a picture just after it was pierced:

And this picture is just from the weekend:

It’s a cute little piercing and I’m very happy with it. Pain wise, it’s not bad. If you’ve had any other cartilage piercing done, it’s exactly the same. Just that tight tugging feeling as jewellery enters and the pinch as it’s pierced. If you’ve had anything pierced with a gun, this is nothing. Also, stop getting pierced with guns. It’s unhygienic and is very traumatizing to your body. Do your research, find a good piercer and switch to only being pierced with needles! Healing is so much easier and it’s much more comfortable. Also, there is no terrifying snapping sound.

If you’re in Halifax, NS definitely find your way to Classy Tattoo and Amanda will get you set up properly! Remember, quality jewellery is more expensive, but it also is easier and faster for healing. Take it from someone who has healed piercings from guns (ear lobes a billion times), stainless steel and titanium. Stainless steel is great but titanium is so much better. If what you want isn’t available, but can be ordered in, consider the option of waiting. Your body will love you for it, and you’ll be happier with your piercing! Don’t be afraid to ask questions and make sure you’re comfortable with the situation. Amanda is a great source of information and will make sure you’re aware of everything involved so you can make the choice that is right for you. She will be very realistic with you and tell you if what you want will work or not. Remember, going in to the studio to ask your questions is a lot better than calling or emailing. They can see what they will be working with and be able to show you your options. This isn’t a commitment, and if you aren’t ready they don’t take it personally.

If you have questions let me know! I’ll do my best to answer what I can and anything else I’ll point you in the direction that you need to go. Just remember, not all studios are the same and you get what you pay for. Do your research, and if you’re watching youtube videos remember that how they perform a piercing may not be how your local piercer does it. Some piercers will favor biopsy punches and some will favor needles. Be sure you ask your local piercer how they perform it if you want to ensure you’re seeing a general idea of how the piercing will be performed.

Disclosure – I’m not a piercer, and cannot be give you advise about your piercings. I can tell you about my experiences and point you in the direction of a professional piercer. I can help you think of any questions you may need to ask. All my posts are of my personal experiences and research (online, in person, with my piercer).

Fight the good fight, and support those who want to make sure you have the best possible experience with your piercing!
