SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: This was my first cartilage piercing done with a needle. I got this piercing done at Steady Tattoo in Minneapolis over a year ago. The piercer asked me what kind of jewelry I wanted for the hole—in which I believe he shouldn’t had asked…
ah. i wanted a cartilage piercing so badly, but i didn’t want to go through the cartilage, so i had my sister pierce the skin right next to the cartilage. well, this happened years ago, and i still have a bump from it/you can see where the needle went through. my ear looks a little deformed from it. this post just reminded me of it.
i then got my actual cartilage pierced in the same area to try to hide it, but it’s so uncomfortable to sleep on (i only have a hoop - can’t afford a barbell.)
