Shallow Wants: Tragus Jewelry

This past Tuesday I took the plunge and got pierced for the first time in over seven years. My last piercing experience (secondary lobes) was a terrible time and I don't even have the piercings to go with them now, as I had to let them close up. Suffice to say, I was a bit nervous, but I actually had a great time and came out with a nifty black stud in my tragus.



Now, I'm looking forward to another three to four months of healing before I can swap out my jewelry, but that doesn't mean I haven't started looking. Here are my favorite pieces that I've found so far:

What were your last piercings? How long ago did you get them?

  1. My last piercing was my left nostril, now I have double nostril piercings :) (one on each side).
    Usually I have fun studs in my nose (stars, skulls, rainbow flowers) but something about this pregnancy is making the piercing on the right side a bit sensitive so I'm sticking with basic steel hoops in both sides right now.

  2. I just got my septum in August. (to replace my lip ring). I've heard great things about the bioplast tragus earrings, btw. I've got a bioplast barbell in my industrial and its so comfortable.

    1. I'm excited to try it out, I'm not exactly allergic to metal but I like the idea of being able to trim the earring to make it fit better.

  3. I have bad luck when it comes to piercings. When I got my 4th lobes done they went a bit wrong and I had to let the right close up. I've since tried re-piercing it but it was too low - felt like my lobe would tear right through if I wore heavy earrings - so I'm letting it close up again. Eventually I will re-do it. Next on my list though is my septum and eventually I want about 6 earrings going up each ear :D After that I'll probably stick with tattoos as I like my piercings to be even on each side. I'd quite like lip piercings but I have really thin, sensitive gums so it's a bad idea for me.

    1. I love how lip piercings look, alas it's unlikely I'll ever get them. Silly corporate future. Sigh.

  4. Neat! I also have a tragus piercing. I'm having more trouble with it than some of the others--wishing you the best of luck with yours!
