    Well to help bring swelling down, a good idea would be to do SSS with chamomile. Taking ibuprofen is also good because it's an anti-inflammatory. I also think an industrial would look good
    Currently have:
    Lobes x2
    Helix x 2 (right ear)
    Inverse Navel
    Double Nostrils
    Nipples (horizontal)

    Want and hopefully getting:
    Tongue Web
    Rook
    Tragus

    Considering:
    Conch
    Snug
    Nape microdermals
    Hip microdermals
    Labret

    You has bumpy bump on your lower helix! I'm just SSS and chamomile for as long as possible! And go for the Industrial

    1/2" lobes, 15 other holes, 2 hours of tattoo work.

    My anti-tragus has done the same thing. It's always been slightly more swollen than the other side. It's about 10/11 months old now and it's only recently getting back to normal size (probably because I've only started to get rid of these damn bumps)... so have some patience. Sea salt soaks and chomomille would be a good idea too.
    Current:
    8mm lobe, 1.2mm lobes x4, helix x3, rook x3, inverse navel, tragus, anti-tragus, conch, diagonal nipples x2, septum, double nostrils.

    Retired: Forward helix x2, helix, standard navel, Madison MD x3

    It will be okay on your left ear cause onthe right the rim of your ear is like almost inexistant

    I want :
    -1 labret (right)

    -tongue piercing :venom or center one
    Left ear:
    -high snug


    Microdermals:2 under clavicule. 2 on lower back (dimple),

    I didn't really notice mine was bigger until I looked at the picture I took of it just after I had it done. It looks like you've got a bit of bump on the inside hole, so that might be why too, seems to be with mine anyway.
