my new piercing

vertical tragus



Excuse the Insta-snaps post but I thought I’d do a quick Sunday update post as I’ve been all over the place this weekend! I went up to Manchester yesterday with Tigi to learn more about Bedhead by Tigi and soak up some atmosphere. However on the way up there was torrential rain and the whole festival was a complete wash out. More on that another time!

Today I travelled back and headed up to Camden to get some new piercing. I’ve been umming and aaahhing over getting some new piercings and in typical me style I didn’t want something everyone had. I had waned to get my chest microdermals redone as I’ve recently had them all removed (apart from one) and a vertical tragus and a few lobe ones. After talking to my piercer (I went to Cold Steel on Camden High Street) I decided to just get the vertical tragus as I didnt want to put too much metal in my body at once. Especially when they are likely to reject - most surface piercing's do.

So obviously the bit that everyone wants to know. Did it hurt? I’ve had a surface piercing before so knew what to expect. Despite that this one was actually the least painful of all the ones I’ve ever had (and trust me, I’ve had a lot). In terms of my piercings my most painful was my rook and then my nose. Despite EVERYONE asking me - no my microdermals didn't hurt that much. Obviously they hurt as much as someone punching out your skin and putting something in there but they really aren't that bad. It was over in seconds, and she just clamped my ear (which I normally find the most painful) and then pierced me before I knew what happened it was done. I then just got two other piercing on my lobe so I now have three holes and then a stretched hole from when I wore tunnels.

Im going to get some new jewellery for my other lobe piercing and get some plugs just to even out the way my ear looks as I used to have stretched ears. But other than that I'm very happy with them. I dont have much swelling or pain at the moment which is good, but we'll see. I'll keep you updated.

  1. Oooh love it! I think my Rook has been the most painful piercing I've had, but I've got both tragus, my daith and my lobes 3 times and they were all fine. I'm hoping to get my nose re-done soon since when I originally got it done, the guy pierced it too low down and it just didn't look right! x

  2. We both have matching microdermals in our arms and they hurt quite a bit tbh! Although the triple forward helix was especially horrific. My favourite is probably my industrial piercing. Yours are so cool!

  4. It looks really cool! I had my snug pierced years ago and it was sore and so bruised for a couple of days, but it's always difficult to remember how painful something was when it's over! xxx

  5. I've wanted this done for like 2 years now but have never got it as I don't want it to reject. Although, I have had my neck surface piercing for about 3/4 years now it everything has been okay with that so maybe I should just do it! Yours looks lovely! x

  11. We're twins (well kinda)! I have my left tragus pierced at the beginning of this year. Trust me, this pesky piercing takes a long time heal. Hypertrophic Scarring (lumps forms of skin) are going to appear within in the first few months.

  27. I really love this piercing. I got my actual tragus done a couple of years ago, and it was without a doubt the most painful piercing Ive ever had. I'm so glad I went through with it though because I absolutely love it, it was so worth the pain. Really want to get a couple more holes on my lobes like you've done, think it looks very pretty! xx

  28. Hi Lily^^,
    I love your piercings so so much! You look awesome with them!
    I seriously think about getting a clavicle surface piercing, and my parents(I´m just 15) are fine with it. Would you recommend getting dermals instead? I really want them!
    Your blog is perfection! You are one of my most favourite bloggers ever!
    Have a lovely day!
