I have been wanting to get my cartilage pierced for a couple of years now and I finally got it done! I had to get it done at a tattoo shop because they are the only ones who still pierce cartilages nowadays. When we were on our way to get it done I started freaking out because I hate pain and needles. They used a hypodermic needle to pierce my ear. My mom and my Nana were videoing me getting it done which I did not like at all.
The piercing artist who did it had to put a clamp on my ear first then he put the needle through. When the needle was going through it hurt like crazy! It felt like someone had lit a match and put it up to my ear. But in the end I was happy that I got it done.
The man who did it was the owner of the shop and he gave me two stickers and a really nice t-shirt that is pink. It has the logo on the front and is super cute.
After getting it done I went to a fair and my ear was hurting non-stop. It was really hard to sleep the first night. I can’t wait till it heals because then I get to change out the earring and put in a prettier one. lol
