I've been wanting to get my ears pierced again for a while. I used to have a third piercing on each lobe and 3 cartilage piercings but they were bothersome and I took them out. They never healed right. So on a whim today I decided to go! I was at the hairdressers and mentioned I'd been wanting to and she was like why don't you! And the shop is one block down. I had heard great things about that tattoo/piercing shop and they have a good reputation too. Well, I couldn't decide which piercings I wanted more so I got all the ones I wanted all at once. I got a third lobe piercing on each side, a helix (upper cartilage) on my left ear and a conch on my right ear. I discussed the past issues I had with similar piercings and the artist said it was due to getting them done with a piercing gun as opposed to a needle. Also I did all the things you're not supposed to that I didn't know like touching it, rotating the ring, and more. So hopefully I'll have better luck this time. That was my great adventure for the day . Sleeping on my back tonight for sure.
