Image of my very first piercing also added in, since it had previously just existed as a kabucam pic until now.
The triple helix piercing had a few small issues at first. I first did what should have been the middle and top piercing, after which the middle piercing became the top. In fact, the very first picture there, that's when the piercings were one 'setting' higher. As in, they were spaced X far apart, and then it moved one down. What was happening was that my glasses, the earpiece, was bumping into the backing of the upper piercing, and getting it infected. No seriously, there were some serious moments where it was so swollen that I thought my skin would simply tear (I'm fairly certain it did a few times) and the jewel would be sucked into the flesh. I'm... honestly shocked I don't have a scar there, to be honest. Not complainin', not complainin'
I'm sorry, it was disgusting and terrifying, I had to share lol
So that one was removed! We just moved the dots 'down' a notch, and put in the two bottom ones after a few months (sad on me for no longer having the exact date :( ). Everything healed up well, and I eventually had shortened posts put on them. My eventual goal is to get Barbie-pink rings to put there. AAAAAAAH, that would be so outrageous, I love it. Bright pink rings in my ears, bring it!
So that's my plan ^_^
And on November 28, 2023, I finally got pink helix rings to replace the studs. The studs themselves stayed in for about 7 years, and then, due to not being able to wear earrings at my workplace at the time, had to have removable earrings, so I swapped to 13/8" 18ga pink rings (matte due to lack of option at the time), which makes me feel a little bit like Barbie, which was the whole plan from the start.
I was hoping that the rings would clink together and make a slight chiming sound in your ear as your walk, but the 3/8" rings are too small to make that happen (though yet the largest pink hinged segment ear hoop I could find), so they can't quite clink together, but that's still in the plans. I finally have pink helix rings though, which is the first step of the journey past the initial piercing, so I am happier ^_^
Original pierced by Justine on June 11, 2015 at Metamorphosis, the rest pierced somewhere in 2017, pink rings obtained November 28, 2023.
