    Oooh I'd let this one heal a lot more before you get the other side punched if you can! You don't want to be sleeping on them etc :( looks amazing though!

    not the best quality pics as i had to use my phone camera.....

    note, the bluish tinge around the piercing is residue from a home made healing ointment i use and nothing to be worried about..

    Congrats on the punch, but based on my punch experience (4mm inner conch) and what I was told by my piercer, I'd hold off on getting another so soon, they can and often do go through some ugly periods a few weeks in. At this size you wont be wanting to heal it naked, so I'd advise just keeping a close eye on it and not rush into getting more, even if you are a restless sleeper, the pain can last for months (depending how fast it heals).

    Personally I think they should be done with plugs or tunnels rather than barbells (not that barbells are bad), so that they allow you vary the pressure applied as needed through adjusting the o-rings as you may find you get a blow out looking occurance on one or both sides which you will want to create some extra room to allow the air to dry it out. But for the initial healing period mght want it tight to stem bleeding and encourage a nice clot.

    I'd also advice you drop this pointless healing aintment routine too to be honest, there is no need for anything more than 1/4 tspn of sea salt in a mug of hot water.
