I got a new piercing today, as you know if you saw my newest mobile photo. I’d been wanting to get my tragus pierced for over a year and a half, and I finally got around to it.
So, it didn’t feel like what I expected. It was a good 5 minutes of “Ow. Ow. Ow!” but not as bad as I had thought. I also hadn’t realized how long it takes to do the piercing. It was pretty intensive. It stopped hurting really fast though. When I got my cartilage pierced, it hurt for a good 2 hours of throbbing afterward. This is just red and swollen.
It looks pretty sweet though. So now I just need 2 more ear piecings and another tattoo and I think I’ll be done.
I’m in Seattle right now. Post about my trip when I get home tomorrow night.
