My Piercings: What, Where and Why!

I’m known amongst my friends for exaggerating pretty much everything, however, this is not the case here: Β I have had literally hundreds of requests from people on YouTube to do a ‘show and tell’ about my piercings. They’re not particularly extreme, but they do come to a total of 10, so I thought they warranted their own little blog post! I will explain what the piercings are, where they are and why I decided to get them.

Piercings on my right ear

This is my right ear – where the majority of my piercings are. As you can see, the first hole looks a littke droopy – that’s because I used to have it stretched to 7mm, and wore a silver tunnel for years. I decided to take it out about 2 years ago, because I wanted to be able to wear regular pairs of earrings. I had the first holes (on both ears) pierced when I was around 8 at a jewellers. Β The second and third holes on the lobe were done within perhaps a year of each other. Β The second holes were done at a hairdressing salon in my town, and the third at a tattoo parlour in Stockport. I was about 13 when I had the second holes, and 14 when I had the third. Then came the tragus piercing – the one in the little middle bit. I had this done when I was 15 in Afflecks Palace, Manchester. Honestly, it was the least painful piercing I had – my friend who came in with me was more scared than I was! I then had the double helix piercing, the two at the top, when I was around 16, again at Afflecks Palace. My plan was to have a spiral ring going through the two, but I could never find one that was the right size πŸ™

Piercings on my left ear

My left ear is marginally less interesting, haha! I had all of these done as pairs, so at the same time as the corresponding one on my right ear. I’m not big fan of being symmetric, which is why I decided to stop at these on my left ear. So that’s a total of 9 so far…

belly button piercing

And here is my final one! I planned to first get this belly button piercing when I was around 14, but as I did taekwondo (I did it for a total of 7 years) I didn’t think it was a good idea! So, one day when I was in Sixth Form, I decided to go and get it done in my lunch break at a tattoo parlour in my town. It didn’t hurt at all, and was over so quickly!

So there is a run-down of my piercings! I hope this has been informative for you all, and if you have any questions juts ask below πŸ™‚

Stay Creative,

    Awesome piercings you have πŸ™‚ I wanted to have one in my ear above but they say it hurts a lot more than a usual ear piercing, so I don’t know yet πŸ˜‰ What a lovely belly button piercing you have πŸ˜€ I have a nose piercing ^^

      Thank you! The only pain I’ve had from piercings is the double helix, as the two were done straight after each other. And your nose piercings looks lovely! x

        You’re welcome πŸ™‚ Can you describe the pain perhaps? Just curious πŸ™‚ And thank you! It’s only nose piercing though, not plural, hehe πŸ˜› And it’s a stone, not a ring πŸ™‚

    This is brilliant ! I have my septum, eyebrow & tongue done. I have my lobes pierced twice, too. I desperately want the top of my ear but I’ve heard it gets infected very easily :S
    How much did the double helix hurt on a scale of 1-10 ?
    Thank you so much for these blog posts πŸ™‚ x

    • May 12, 2011 / 11:39 pm

      Oo awesome πŸ˜€ I would say that it was about 7, because they did them both straight after one another…but it’s totally worth it πŸ˜€ xx

    I love our piercings! i like how they’re not symmetrical…I’ve always wanted a double helix piercing or a a side labret stud. I’m just way afraid of doing it though! Plus i heard the helix hurt lot.

        Haha, thank you very much! The helix hurt me because I had them both done at the same time, on their own they are fine πŸ™‚ xx

    I’ve had a lip piercing for 6 years now and I can’t tell how many time my friends and family asked me to take it off ! I just love it, it’s part of me now !! I also have my tongue pierced, i got it i think 3 years ago =) I don’t plan on getting anymore even if I’d love to have a really thin nose ring kind of one.

    When i was younger I wanted to get some more piercings on my ears, just like you, I think they look so cool !!!

    • May 16, 2011 / 11:39 am

      Oo awesome! Don’t let anyone tell you to do something differently if you feel its part of you πŸ™‚ xx
