Yaaay! Here it is guys - my new tragus piercing! I'm so pleased with it and surprisingly it seems to have healed really quickly! I was so nervous before I had it done because I'd been told by a few people that it was going to hurt loads - I'm not going to lie, it did hurt when the needle went in, but it wasn't that bad and it was done so quickly I didn't really have time to think about it. I felt a bit of pain when the ball was screwed on and then it was all over - immediately afterwards I couldn't feel it at all, in that respect I found it less painful than my lobes! A couple of people I know said that when they had it done, they couldn't sleep on it for a few days - I avoided resting on it the first night but after that it was fine. A week on and I never feel it, I've been cleaning it twice a day and I can twist it and everything without pain - really not as bad as I expected!
I got to the piercing shop early as well so they gave me a free hoop for waiting: I can't wait to see how that looks in 6-8 weeks time. I thoroughly recommend Kazbah for piercings if you live anywhere near Leicester, they're so lovely there and I wouldn't get my ears done anywhere else :)
Oo and this is entirely unrelated, but can anyone suggest an alternative to Picnik? It's closing down in April and I use it to get my photos together like the 2nd and 3rd ones here - if you could suggest anything, that'd be really helpful :)
