    Question How long to wait for new piercings???

    Hi all!

    I had my right tragus pierced in May and my left conch on August the 3rd. The tragus seems to be healing fine (no bumps, infections etc) and while the conch is still fresh it hasn't showed any signs of trouble such as swelling.

    My question is this: would it be wise to go for a triple outer conch (on the left ear) during Christmas break or should I wait?
    I'm thinking of doing like 2 of the 3 piercings in one session and the third one a little later because I know that generally I'm kind of a slow healer.

    The thing is that Christmas and Summer breaks are the only time I can get those piercings because I want them done by my regular piercer in my home country, to which I only return at those times, as I'm studying abroad.
    Also, I'd rather not wait until the summer break because I will be rather busy with work and internships, and taking care of 3 new piercings at the same time seems a bit much.

    What do you think?

    Thank you for your reply!
    Is it true though that the 3 piercing will take way more time to heal than if they were done separately?

    I would personally get all 3 at the same time rather then do the process twice. The more "trauma" the body has it does can take longer to heal but healing for everyone is different. But I'd rather get it done at one time and deal with any issues. I had a vertical industrial pierced and a month later got a 2nd foreward helix and a "lobe" piercing.

    Not really, no one can know for sure anyway but I'd say get all 3 done at once, 1 lot of healing, 1 visit, no having to change the bars out on existing piercings for longer ones for swelling etc.

    I have had five piercings done at once with my Paw Print piercing. I don't think I would want to keep going back and forth to have had each done. It would have taken ages. I am glad to have had them all done at once. It doesn't feel like I have had five done. I have only had slight problems with two of the piercings due to the heat wave settling them off. Otherwise I would not even know my ear had been pierced. I have done my very best to have left this piercing alone.
    Left side - Ear Lobes 1,2,3 Daith, Helix, Rook, Lower Conch and Double Tragus (sadly the bottom one has migrated).

    Right side -Ear Lobes 1,2,3 Daith, "Paw" print piercing on the flat of my ear, Tragus, Nostril, Helix and Eyebrow. "Shen Men" piercing, Triple Forward Helix.

    Retired - Right Eyebrow's x2.

    Quite a few Tattoo's.
