    We need one of these as we dont seem to have one!

    I love piercings but have been putting them off forever, and i have only recently realised i dont even know why im putting them off!

    So i had my helix pierced yesterday [top of ear] and already have more planned.

    you guys have any? if so what do you have?

    Pictures always welcome :D

    I have my ears and a Monroe piercing. Used to have my belly button done too but my body rejected it and it became pretty infected and sore. Still have the scar there!

    I don't know how I have got through the last 60+ years where the only piercings I have had done were courtesy of the national health sevice and some very nice nurses during several stays in hospital.
    What do people find attractive about them?

    I have had three piercings in each ear lobe for a long time now, but I had the top of my ear pierced quite recently too.
    It is taking ages to heal though :(

    Never plucked up the courage to have any other part of my body pierced - I had a couple of tattoos instead, lol!

    I currently have 18 still in, I took my two navel ones and both nipple piercings out due to being pregnant but I'd love a few more in my ears though

    I currently have my ear lopes done x 3, I also have a nose piercing, lip piercing and one of my ear lope holes is stretched to 6mm.. I plan to stretch another ear lope and want to get it to match the other one... I also want to get my lip pierced again so I have snake bites and would like to get my tragus done.

    Used to have mine done too but caught it on something and almost ripped it out! ouch!
    yet still planning to have it done again in the near future lol

    Each to their own i guess. it just like tattoos, hair shades, hair cuts everyone likes different stuff.
    Personally i just like the way they look.

    Apparently they can take up to 18months to heal fully! Gonna be a long wait for me.

    I have my ear lobes and my eyebrow pierced so nothing major, though I don't wear my eyebrow bar any more, but the hole is still there (i check every few months). I want to get my nipple pierced as well soon

    Medusa is the little dip just above your upper lip, and VCH is vertical clitoral hood :)

    I didn't know the ears had so many different names for the piercings!

    I think the Daith looks most painful! :eek:

    It's the same as any of the other cartilage ones which aren't that bad!

    Depends on how thick your cartilage is, but pain is different from person to person some say they are really painful some say they are the same as other cartilage piercings.

    Having both nipples done was a hell of a lot worse!

    Least the VCH is meant to be fast healing so i guess not so bad.
