    Default Think 2 in 1 sitting is a good idea?

    I'm thinking of getting an industrial and an eyebrow (both on the same side) in one sitting next week, thinking it would be easier for getting back to normal sleeping asap, plus i would get a discount on the overall price.

    After reading lots about pain and trouble with the industrial, I'm wondering if this is a good idea after all.

    what do other people think? has anyone had 2 different piercings done in one sitting? was it more hassle than just waiting till one heals and getting another?

    thanks.

    Well, since an industrial counts as two healing piercings it might be best to space them out a little bit. If you don't have any other healing piercings you can try, but industrials can be really pissy. Even my eyebrow was a pretty tricky healer. Maybe you could get your eyebrow done and then get the industrial while it heals, or get the industrial, wait for it to settle down at least a little, and get the eyebrow.
    I've gotten two piercings in the same sitting at once but never really difficult healers (except my double helix which was kind of a mistake).

    Hmm, thanks for the input. I didn't realize the eyebrow was a difficult healer too. All my current piercings are fully healed.

    Well, they're not for some people, but other people (like me) have major problems with them... mine never really healed and I had it for 8 months, but some people heal them in 8 weeks with no issues at all.

    I think its down to the individual really, as long as you're happy doing SSSs 4 times a day and are ready to possibly end up babying 3 piercings then fair do's. I personally think that an industrial is about the only thing I would definitely get done on its own due to their potentially awkward healing. Btw I had my eyebrow done twice and both times it healed fine, migrated both times sadly but healed no probs! In the same view some people have well behaved industrials and some have months/years of problems.

    I've heard a lot about eyebrow piercing migration, it would be disappointing but i'm not too worried about that. But considering both your comments I wonder if i should have them done separately. I'm not bothered about spending time SSS-ing them as arranging and playing with my current piercings has somewhat become a hobby!! so i will enjoy taking time over them. I am concerned with if both industrials and eyebrows are prone to complications. hmmm... just don't know what to do.

    I think it would be a better idea to get your eyebrow done first which can usually take around 2-3 months to heal then go for your industrial as it is the longer healer of the two say around 9 months but anything up to a year as they can be so problematic for some people/most people xXx

    I had my eyebrow done twice but it was a while ago and from memory I think it was done with a straight bar as opposed to a curved one so may have assisted in it migrating. However as its a surface piercing it is likely they can migrate regardless, its also anatomy dependant, some people can keep theirs for years on end some even 10 or 15+ years. I think pinks is right though eyebrow first as it may well be a quick healer for you

    As others said, industrials really count as two piercings and are b*tchy healers, so I think you would be best off with getting your eyebrow done, waiting 3 months, then getting your industrial.
    Current
    Ears: Left forward and standard helix, left tragus, left daith. Right rook, right double inner conch. 1g and 14g lobes.
    Face: Right nostril, septum, vertical labret.
    Other: Tongue, standard and inverse navel, left and right nipple.

    My friend got an industrial and a tragus done in one sitting back in Decmber. Today she went and got a forward helix and another helix done in one sitting aswell despite me telling her to do just the one because her industrial isnt tht old...Id do what been suggested tbh.
