Thread: So Many Piercings, So Little Time

  1. #1

    Default So Many Piercings, So Little Time

    I've updated my signature with my latest piercings, and yeah; its a lot. I do at least 30 minutes to an hour of aftercare a day, not counting preventative care like keeping my hair up, extra care in the shower, etc. Its some work, but I love them all! I guess this post is to say, do what you love, and get what you want, don't worry about others' perception, as long as you're suited for it, do it! Unfortunately, my piercing days are slowing down as I have pretty much all that I'm looking to get, but that's okay, I have plenty to heal in the meantime. Does anyone else have a bunch healing at the same time? I believe its recommended to get 3 or less in one session, and have no more than 3-4 healing at one time. All of mine have been done individually except my triple forward helix, but most of them have been done this year. Once I can get some pictures uploaded, I'll edit this post with 'em.
    Current:
    Both Ears - 3 sets of lobes, daith 16g, tragus 18g
    Left Ear - Triple forward helix 18g (done 7/22/17, healing), conch 16g (done 8/18/17, healing), helix 18g (done 10/1/17, healing)
    Right Ear - Industrial 14g (done 7/3/17, healing), faux snug 18g (conch + helix, done 8/21/17, healing), rook 18g (done 10/1/17, healing)
    Face - Right nostril 18g, septum 16g (done 9/26/17, healing)

    Wish List:
    Left Rook
    Floating navel

    Retired:
    Navel 2x

    The 3 in 3 rule is a guideline used by good piercers and seems sound to me.

    30-60 mins of aftercare a day would bore me to death. Mine get rinsed in the shower, end of lol
