All About My Piercings

Hello everyone!
As I mentioned in my 25 facts about me post I have a few piercings. At the time of writing that I had 4, all in my ears. Three weeks ago I finally got my nose pierced after begging my mum for the past two years. Persistence is key.
So I thought I would talk through all my piercings, how painful I thought they were and show you some pictures.

 First up is the piercing I have in my right ear. I only have my first lobe piercing on this side. The first lobe is probably the most common piercing and I got mine when I was about 5 years old. For that reason I don't remember how painful it was but most people find it pretty painless.

Next is the piercings in my left ear. I also have my first lobe on this side. As well as that I have my tragus, which is the one in the middle just above my firsts. I got this done July 2015, a few weeks after my 14th birthday. I have a pretty low pain tolerance so this I would give a 7/10. But it all just depends on how you deal with pain. I just have a plain hoop in here but when I got it pierced there was a stud put in.

The last ear piercing is my helix, that's the one near the top at the back. Again when I got this pierced the piercer put a stud in it but since then I got it changed to this really cool star shaped hoop. This was slightly less painful than my tragus at a 5.5/10. I got this piercing in December 2015.

Last but certainly not least is my nose piercing. This was surprisingly not as sore as I thought it was going to be. My right eye, which is the side I have it on, just watered a lot which I was expecting. As it's only three weeks old I still have the stud I got it pierced with but when it is fully healed I might change it to a hoop. I would give this a 4/10 on the pain scale. 

So that's all my piercings. For now. I got most of my piercings at Fearless Needle which is an amazing tattoo and piercing parlour not too far from where I live. Let me know if you have any piercings or tattoos, or if you want any. Speak to you soon!

  2. Haha! Go for it! If you can handle the piercings you've already had then a tragus will be fine x
