    Soaks again, compresses if needed basically.
    Bodies are indeed! My conch has been playing up recently, just tenderness, but it's old enough to settle by itself. Think i've just been sleeping heavier that side, or differently, or moving more lol.
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    Thanks everyone, they're feeling a bit better today I guess having a couple of teeth pulled hit me harder than I thought it would :P

    Currently really missing having lobe piercings :(
    Really weird to go from having a 3mm stretch and 1.2m stud in both to 0,.. just keep oogling at larger gauge pretties on BAF to convince myself letting them close a bit and re-piercing larger will be worth it ^_^

    Question for anyone who has a triangle piercing or knows a lot about them... I'm planning a trip to a good studio to get a triangle if I'm suited. How sore can I expect to be in the days following the piercing? At my job I am constantly on my feet and moving around a lot and I don't really want to ask for more than 2 days off. If it's going to be tender for a while I should probably think of something else to have done...

    Ears: Right conch, left conch, left double helix, 1/2" lobes.
    Other: Both nostrils, septum, VCH, navel
    RIP: Left eyebrow, right double tragus
    7 tattoos!
