Number 121 on my adventure list – get a cartilage ear piercing – has been something I have wanted to do for awhile. My only piercings thus far have been the basic ear lobe piercings that I had done in high school. I think my inspiration for another ear piercing initially came from Anna Kendrick in the movie Pitch Perfect.
My best friend and I have been talking for the past year about her getting a new tattoo and me getting my cartilage pierced. We finally made it happen a few weeks ago.
Now, about the pain. The piercing itself didn’t hurt as bad as I thought it would. It was the days after when I had to clean it that the pain was the worst. I also didn’t think about how I would only be able to sleep on one side at night. That part wasn’t fun. However, it’s now the end of week 3, and overall it feels pretty good and is healing nicely.
I think my new piercing adds the little bit of spice I was looking for.
I’ll leave you with this.
