I had my lobes pierced at a chemist with a piercing gun. Scared for life and it hurt like hell and it had a loud noise....RIGHT NEAR MY DAMNED EAR! thunk

When I started reading up about daith piercings helping with migraines, I was willing to try anything at that time. I have a tattoo parlor within walking distance that, after I messaged the page on facebook to see if the piercer was in and had some time, I walked around and got the first one done. It...didn't exactly hurt, it was just more a lot of pressure...and the sound of the cartilage was...interesting. I ended up getting the other side done almost a year later and that side did hurt a bit. And it hurt a hell of a lot more when I had to get it re-pierced at least a month later due to accidentally knocking the bottom ball from the bar off and landing in my ear, but not going down into my ear due to my head being tilted the right way for it not to do that. And then as I stuck my finger in to remove it, I accidentally flicked the bar out. As you can imagine, I panicked more about that than the ball coming off. XD

XD

I don't think I really have the patience for the after care. If I have to baby something it drives me nuts. I don't think I minded babying a tattoo too much, but piercings are more work in my opinion.

It's basically the same as the tattoo. Typically twice a day care, morning and night, sometimes a little extra if it wants to be annoying. I was more concerned about my re-inked tattoo healing than my daith piercing being redone and looking after it. I swung by the second studio (the first is right around the corner of my place, their second studio is on the high st right around the corner from the bus stop...super convenient! XD ) because I didn't have time to go around the corner before the bus, to ask them about the healing of a re-inked tattoo and if it heals differently to fresh. He said it might just be a reaction to the ink, and I flashed him my chest tattoo to prove that wasn't the case when it went straight onto virgin skin. Laughing He suggested changing the moisturiser that I had been using, and no more itchy, really, really, really dry skin.

I typically use an antiseptic cream in the first week of healing for the tattoo, to basically help speed up the healing, and after that, I switch to a moisturiser that is scent-free (or at least as scent-free as I can find). I was using my normal moisturiser that I use all over, and my wrist where I changed the colour from red to purple...it suddenly became inflamed. You know how if you get a spider bite, you circle the redness that you see initially to see if it spreads past the circle and thus spreading the poison/toxin through the blood stream? Well, the redness spread so fast, I wouldn't have even been able to put a dot on my skin before the redness would have been past it. Almost all the way around my skin. But only temporarily until the moisturiser was completely absorbed into the skin.

But lesson learned for more delicate skin, as my chest tattoo did get a little red, but now with another moisturiser, both are healing well. Yes

I'm glad they're healing nicely. Very Happy

I used the antibiotic ointment or whatever it was the tattoo place gave me the first 24-48 hours. After that I used Udderly Smooth Udder Lotion until they were fully healed. I was able to keep my last couple of tattoos from scabbing up. That wasn't the case with my first one. :/ I didn't keep the first one moist enough.

I forgot to ask you what your critters think of the new place. Have they explored every inch yet? XD


Pupper is much less freaked out. It's been a blessing in disguise that I've had almost three weeks off of work. I've been slowly putting the house together, and I've been able to get the fur children into some sort of routine. I'm starting to let kitty outside now. He's not sure what to think of everything. XD


I get constant headaches, and thank God I haven't had a migraine in awhile. I have considered daith piercings, but after reading up on them, they may or may not help. And because I have to sleep with ear plugs, that may not be a good piercing for me to get.
