LETS TALK EAR PIERCINGS..

So as you know, from my IG stories I got 3 new piercings on 1 ear for my birthday back in December.  I got my third piercing on my right ear, then I got 2 Helix piercings.  One on my top right ear, and then one below it.  Holy shit, was I not prepared for that pain!  It definitely burned like a SOB.  I got all 3 on the same day.  Now, I’ll walk you through what you need to do to take care of them and what you shouldn’t do when getting them done.

WHAT TO EXPECT.

  1. It’s going to hurt for months.  It’s been 4 months and mine are still tender to touch.  Definitely have gotten tons better and aren’t swollen anymore.
  2. You can’t sleep on that ear for a good 2 months.  I still try not to sleep on mine.  I can more than I did even a month ago.  The more you sleep on them, the more likely your chances of getting infected.
  3. YOU MUST I mean MUST clean it 2x a day.  With saline water.  I use contact solution and a qtip.  If you don’t,  you WILL get infected really quick.  I know this because I did!  My helix piercings have been infected 3x now because I stopped cleaning them because I thought they were good.  Even if they’re good, keep cleaning them.
  4. They’ll be swollen for a couple months.
  5. Can’t go under water for 6 weeks.  So I wouldn’t get them in the summer!

Okay, now do you want to get them? Haha.  But no, they’re SO beyond worth it! I’m so glad I went through with it.  I love them! 

WHAT YOU’LL LOVE.

  1. You always look put together!  I feel  like these piercings have added so much personality to my outfits.  I can tuck my hair behind my ear and it looks so cute with them popping out. 
  2. It’ll give you a reason to get cute jewelry!  
  3. I love anything dainty!  If you haven’t noticed, I’m not that big into jewelry.  I do love little dainty jewelry though, so I feel like this is perfect.  
  4. You can always have them in!  I never take mine out.  I do to clean them and thats it.
  5. You’ll always have these fun piercings to play around with and find new ways to add in fun jewelry.

    • Hey Jen! Totally forgot to cover that part. I got them done at a tattoo/piercing shop! I would highly recommend not going to claires. Get them done professionally. Going to add that into my post now!
