    Question two piercings on the same day??

    Hi all!

    So I'm going to go and get some more piercings some time in the week, right now all I have is double lobes on both ears so this is going to be a real step up. I'm going to get a helix piercing on my right ear and a tragus on my left. I was wondering if this will be bearable, I'm pretty sure my pain tolerance is above average but I was thinking about if sleeping on them will be uncomfortable as there won't be an ear without a fresh piercing. I'd love to hear if others have ever been in this situation too and how they overcame it.

    I've gotten 2 piercings on a few occasions just fine, however in my ear I would opt for 2 on one side because I'm a side sleeper.
    I accidentally slept on my new conch piercing last night in an awkward way and it's now very swollen and sore, I'm having to take ibuprofen and I personally can only just careful sleep on the other side now after 9 months of having a snug piercing healing

    I had a double snug done - it was fine. I'd be cautious though about having one in each ear. Do you sleep on your back? I was able to sleep on the snugs within weeks but although it caused me no pain they did swell up each time.

    Having two piercings done at the same time isn't a problem - I've had 4 (both nipples and traguses), but it's advisable to concentrate on one ear at a time, so that you've got at least one side to sleep on. Sleeping with a travel or donut pillow will help if you've got both ears healing at the same time.
    4 lobes in each ear
    1 right tragus
    1 right helix
    1 left nose
    1 right & 1 left nipples
    1 VCH
    1 right rook
    1 right inner conch
    1 floating navel
    1 left daith

    Retired: left tragus, 2 lobes in each ear, left nipple, 2x navel

    Want: 1 vertical tongue, 1 Madonna, HCH,
