So I was the last one of my friends to turn 18, and I watched them all come out with amazing tattoos, but I wanted to do something different for my birthday.
I knew I wanted a piercing, but I didnt want to be sterotyped at my new school by a piercing that was really out there. I already had my lobes pierced twice, and my cartilage on my left ear (not shown) so I decided to get my tragus and rook done.
I did a lot of research on lots of different shops, and found one that had a great reputation for body piercings. The guy who did it was so friendly and calmed me right down.
He pierced my tragus first, and it didnt hurt that bad at all, but the rook did. He said this was because it was a awkward place to pierce, and I used up all my adreneline on the tragus.
After he explained to me how to clean my piercings and how long to leave them in blah blah blah i practically skipped out of there to show them off to my friend, who was waiting outside.
This was one of the best decisions ever. the piecer said it best when he said ‘we all have to go through pain to get the look we want’
