Tragus piercing

Piercing: Tragus and LobeI don't know if you remember me talking about getting another piercing? I wanted to pierce my tragus, but decided to wait until my helix had healed properly before forcing my body to work overtime on healing several wounds at the same time. Now, I finally decided that my helix had healed enough since it's been a little more than 8 months, so at 5:30 PM I had another appointment at Ragnaråkk.

So today I got my tragus, and I love it! I'll be honest and say that it hurt like a [insert word] when she pushed the needle through, a lot worse than the helix. At the moment I'm wearing a regular labret, but I'll go back and change it into a ring when it's healed after about 6-8 weeks. It's a 16 gauge (1.2mm) as opposed to my other ones which are 14 gauge (1.6mm). I feel kinda stupid because I managed to forget - how's that even possible? - to tell her what sizes I wanted, but it seems like it worked out perfectly anyway.

You might also notice that I have another new piercing? I decided to get a third and last hole in my right lobe. I know it looks kinda messy at the moment, but it'll look better once they're all healed, and I can change my jewelery into something less generic and more ..matching? My plan is to have identical rings in the second and third hole of my lobe, and something special in the first. I'll change my helix jewelery into a ring or a straight barbell, and then wear a tiny ring in my tragus.

And with those two piercings I'm all done. Wink
