    Default Rook!

    My sister wanted to get 2 helix piercings today so I went with her and got my rook done as I've fallen in love with rook piercings. I have 2 piercings that are only a couple of months old but they've been really well behaved so I went for it before I go to uni. I watched sis get hers done from the doorway and then it was my turn. Got marked up, Liz (piercer) changed her mind so remarked it and I was happy with it. The piercing was no where near as bad as I expected, I'd even say besides lobes, it was the least painful (of my very few piercings) Was very quick, the jewellery being put in was uncomfortable and it was really weird hearing the ball being screwed on haha. I'd give it a 3/10. Just a very dull ache in my right ear atm, keep forgetting it's there, hopefully it'll be a good healer! Very happy, that's me done until next year

    Here's a pic:

    Day 2 and everything is great. Woke up to find a bit of dried blood, but otherwise no redness or pain at all, just fiddly to clean!

    Nothing to really say about my rook, hardly ever notice it's there. Day 5 and it's starting to crust a tiny bit and the only pain I've had from it is when I slept on it by accident. All good so far

    Thank you! Had it 2 weeks now, it's doing great. Can sleep on it and it's crusting a little.

    Your rook looks great! And its good to hear its not being a problem. I love rook piercings, I got mine done just over a year ago now, It didn't hurt much either and it healed really well, definitely my fave ear piercing Keep taking care of it and it'll heal great!
