A post on piercings

So, a bit of a different post today. About something that's just as 'me' as changing my hair far too much, or buying a ridiculous amount of make up. Piercings! At the moment, I have 17. So I wanted to show people where & what they are!

1. Tragus
2. Upper Cartilage
3. Not actually a piercing, just an ear cuff! 
4. Lower Cartilage
5, 6, 7, 8. Lobe
9. Rook
10. Lower Cartilage
11, 12, 13. Lobe

 14. Nose
15. Bellybutton

 16, 17, 18. Hip dermals
19. I had another dermal, but had to get it removed. When it heals, I'll get it redone!

The most common question I get asked is "Why?" I know a lot of people find the idea of having needles shoved through skin is horrible, but I get an adrenaline rush! Plus, I like trying new things - I like how they look & if I ever didn't like one, it's easy to remove.

Also, hygiene is SO important. Apart from my dermal, which I had removed because I pulled it in my sleep, I have never had any piercing get infected or rejected. I know people who clean theirs regularly & still get infections, but if you don't take care of it, (generally, wash it three times daily with sea salt & water. Any good piercer will advise you on aftercare), it can be dangerous & look disgusting. Plus, don't change them too quickly. If it looks healed outside, it could still be healing internally, so wait for the recommended time.

I get most of mine done in Dublin Ink by Dani, but had three done in Psychosis Wexford when I was at home. Both are reasonably priced, clean & offer free aftercare. Always choose somewhere that uses needles - Piercing guns are NOT good. Don't ever be afraid to leave a studio if you think it looks unclean - You're paying for a service. Don't just choose the cheapest place - Research it, & make sure you're comfortable!

I'm not an expert on piercings, but I've gathered a bit of common sense in my time. I got my bottom lobes done when I was about 7, & gradually added to it. Most recently were my nose & rook, which are only 3 days old! 

I hope you don't mind me posting about other aspects of my life, & maybe someone found it useful. Let me know!

Do you have/ Would you get piercings?

  1. You have a lot of piercing! I like them a lot though, very unique!

  2. That is a lot of piercings - I really like them though, especially your dermals. I just got three front helix piercings done this week, hurting like hell and super hoping they don't get infected but I have never had any piercing infection either - can't be too careful I guess!

    1. Thanks! Ahh I just googled three helixes, & it looks amazing! My rook is killing me right now but I think it's just from being my hair so going to keep it tied up!

  3. I love your rook piercing, it's next on my list! :D by the way I've nominated you for a liebster award on my blog if you wanna check it out! :D xo

    1. It's hurting atm but looks good! Oh thank you so much xx

  4. Have maybe 10 now, on my face and my earlobes are 1 inch stretched down from nearly 2 inches. took out everything else.I am coming up on thirty now, I love my piercings but I do notice that the odd person will have a perception about me because of my hair/piercings and it bothers me but not enough to take them out. It's not older people,it'd usually be a woman in her 30's/40's that takes offence oddly enough.I dress conventionally enough these days that they usually don't get noticed.

    1. i get what you mean, my nose is actually my first facial one. I usually have my hair down & I'm not showing off my torso so nobody really realises that i have so many! I know that I'll probably have to use clear bars or something when I'm looking for work, so i like experimenting in college.


Don't by shy - comments make my day!
