    Default conch conch conch!

    so, im most likely piercing my conch tonight..
    to anyone that has it done,
    1) how much did it hurt you? i know everyone's pain thresholds are different
    2) how long till you were able to sleep on that side of your head?
    3) how long did it take to heal?

    and for everyone..
    anyone willing to adopt me or lemme crash at their house?
    its more than official, president bush is the biggest dumbass.
    i need to get out of the US fast.. before he takes us down with him. :?
    i promise i get along with everyone. :lol:

    I've got both of mine done....both were just a short sharp pain then they went really hot....its not unbearable

    i was able to sleep on mine after a week.....but i slept on my sides pretty soon after all my ear piercings....i found the conch wasn't too bad for lying on as it was in the ear and so didn't have any direct pressure on them!

    I'd say mine were only just about 100% healed about 2 months ago....and i've had them pierced for 10 months!!!! but it could be longer or shorter depending on aftercare, your body etc!!!!


    but its a great piercing...don't worry about the pain side....it only lasts a few seconds!!!

    dont pierce your own conch. Its so hard to do it yourself, and i speak from experience. Try other things, but leave your conch to professionals, a lesson i have learned.

    Doesnt hurt though
    10mm Outer Conch (punched @ 8mm), 3.2mm Helix, 22mm Lobe (scalpeled to 12mm from nothing), 2x 10mm lobe, Transverse lobe through both tunnels, 11mm Labret (was 16mm), 16mm Septum, Branding on left middle finger, 2x lingual frenectomy,subdermal implant in hand, Biomechanical Chest Piece + loads retired.

    You should never pierce yourself.

    And where did you exactly get this idea from? :roll:
