    Ugh. Tragus is sore.
    Left it out for a few days and while the jewellery went in again just fine, it hurt after. So I downsized it. Still hurts.
    I doubt it shrank, it didn't feel like it did and last time I left it out it took 3 weeks to shrink down a size. Maybe I caught a hair in it or maybe I scratched it with the threading. Sigh. Might stretch it up to 1.6 or even 2mm when it's feeling better. It'd be nice to make a change.

    I'm thinking about removing pissed off outer conch, I am not loving it and all this aggro isnt worth it. Silly thing. I don't think its infected just pissed off, so it may get taken out tonight after a soak.

    Labret is also swollen and a bit crusty.. well healed faithful labret.. Why..


    Edit: Took the outer conch out. I wanna be able to sleep again and my heart just wasnt in it!

    Hi everyone!
    Hm, I don't post here much anymore but my internet wandering have lead me here today for the first time in awhile.
    As I'm employed in a field where I remove my piercings daily as my own choice for my safety (I do have coworkers with eyebrow piercings, nose piercings, monroes... I would never risk having my piercings ripped/smacked/bitten out by my clients). I wear soft silicone kaos eyelets in my stretched lobes and luckily my septum is stretched to a 10g so it's quite easy to take in an out. I retired my lip piercing a few months ago.

    I do however get VERY itchy for new mods! I've resorted more so to tattoos now because of the above outlined reasons. Also have a wandering eye for jewellery at this point. Ordered an IS titanium odyssey clicker with a 10g adapter... black CZ with alternative white CZ (like the one in the bottom right of this picture):



    I've been rethinking a microdermal or two lately (I first had them about 6 or 7 years ago when they were still quite new to the industry and they didn't last very long...). If only I could think of a safe place to put them.

    I retired my fake industrial, it just wasn't going to be any use. I'm so disappointed :( it was 1.2mm and not 1.6, it wasn't possible to put a straight bar in and the more I compared it to the piercings I already had the more totally useless and ugly it became. I asked for an expert opinion if it could be salvaged and the answer was no. So it's gone now and I'm never going back to Nirvana in Glasgow again. Now I need to eat pizza and watch Star Trek to feel some happys again.

    You sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve.

    Grumpy old helix is grumpy :/ I keep waking up on it, really sore, and it's giving me crusties. Stupid old bugger.

    I wonder if bioplast labrets are worth a go? Last time I tried wearing labrets (metal ones) they just got more and more uncomfortable until they actually hurt and I had to go back to rings. But rings don't like being slept on.

    Also, my new black colourfront I have in my punch is stupidly long.

    Le sigh
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Both lobes 1/2", 5mm, 1.6mm
    Left rook & 5mm helix punch
    Right helix x2 & forward helix
    VCH, 5mm tongue
