Pierced and smiling!

June 14th 2010: Helix PiercingI went through with it, and I've now got a super cool helix piercing to show off for being brave! I was planning on get a ring, but after talking to a friend of mine with experience and the woman who pierced me, I decided to go with a stud until it's fully healed. A stud reduces the chance of getting bacteria into the wound (the ring will turn and pull bacteria back into it), and I don't want to risk anything. Since it's a cartilage piercing it's a bitch to get infections and complications, so I'll do what I can to prevent it.

I thought I was getting a 16 gauge, but instead I ended up with a 14 gauge - which lets me choose from a lot more different jewelry, and I don't have to think about stretching it later on. Perfect! So I want to give a big thanks to Ragnaråkk for making my first real piercing such a pleasant experience! Grin
