    Default tragus, general advice from other peeps with it?

    no real probs, apart from the usual with a cartilage piercing i hope, just a bit sore got it done last night, bled twice so far yesterday and today just slightly but a bit achey and sore. Had it done with a needle, just wondering as I seem to be paranoid with cleaning as i accidently touch it alot cos i tuck my hair behind my ears, how often did other people clean, any healing tips etc? Worried about lumps cos i had pinna piercings in both ears (stupidly with a gun, was younger) and got lumps....thanks to anyone who can offer advice

    i've had my tragus done for 8 yrs.....started off cleaning twice a day and then gradually went down to only cleaning it when it was needed so when crusty


    as for earphones i can still wear mine no probs....might depend on your ear anatomy but most ppl can still wear them i would just make sure not to wear them until its healed a bit because 1 it might be a bit uncomfortable and 2 it might introduce bactreria to the piercing!!!!

    Some people’s tragus piercings actually help hold the headphones in place. You might be one of the lucky ones!
