We don’t talk about piercings, no, no, no!
We don’t talk about piercings… but
It was a Saturday
I was on Middle Lane
I was getting edgy, but the process didn’t make me cry
(No, Loons, he didn’t even cry!)
Yep, after seeing David Gauthier from Linus Tech Tips and loving his orbital piercing, I finally decided to take the plunge and go for an internal “conch” piercing myself with the aim of turning it into some form of orbital sometime soon (6 months recovery time for such a piercing generally).
How would I rate the pain? I’d put it as a 4/10 – it really didn’t hurt too much at all. Only the outer flesh in this part of the ear actually has pain receptors – the cartilage has no sensation (hence you can literally fold your cartilage in half and not feel anything).
How does it look now?
Pretty fucking cool!
