I got my conch pierced a few days ago and I absolutely love it. For me, it was the most painful piercing I've ever had (and I got my nipple pierced the same day). But the pain only lasts a few seconds, and now a few days on, I can barely feel it unless I move it or hit it off something (ouchh!). I got a ring because I like how they look but my piercer said a bar would be easier to manage. I'm finding the ring grand to clean and stuff so I'm glad I stuck to what I like
I have my rook pierced in the same ear and I like how they look together.
Had my conch pierced about 7 months ago. It honestly was not that bad at all. Didn't bleed and only felt like a little pinch as needle went in. Healed pretty well, if it was knocked it would become sore though and I couldn't sleep on it for a month or two but that's easily avoided. If you're considering it then do it. It is gorgeous and any pain you may experience is totally worth it! Its 5 seconds pain versus a life-time of having a cute, yet awesome, piercing!
I had been wanting this piercing for a while but just wasn't sure about it due to where the needle would be going through LOL. But when I went in to get my industrial redone, I made a decision to get that one done as well. So glad I did! The experience was pretty painless, definitely not what I was expecting! It's a little weird to have a piercing in that part of my ear but I will get used to it I know!
I heard all about how the inner conch was the most painful ear piercing, so I was a little nervous to get this done. I went to the Boston Tattoo Company in Somerville MA and got pierced by Brian, who I totally recommend to anyone in the Boston area. I got two cartilage piercings done before he did the inner conch. It was quick and really no more painful than any other cartilage piercing I've gotten. It's a little tender a few days later, but not as bad as I anticipated.
I went into the shop wanting to get my inner conch piercing done. and i always go to the same place to get my tattoos and piercings.
he swabbed it, marked it, i checked it and then he pierced it without the clamps he said it was easier to do without them and he would use them to put the jewelry in. laid on my side with head turned to the wall, 1 breathe in, 2 exhale slowly and pierced, it was pretty painless and i love it.
clean it with saline solution 2-3 times a day but with the heat 4-5 times for a month and then the second month only about 1-2 times a day
Hey guys! Just got my inner conch pierced. I was expecting a lot of pain for this one because my other cartilage piercing hurt a fair bit. But anyway, she told me to start with a curved barbell with acrylic balls because they would be way more comfortable if I slept on them or something. Then I went and sat in the chair and grabbed my friend's hand while she cleaned and prepped everything. The needle was in very quickly and pretty much painlessly. It hurt a tiny bit when she put the jewellery through but that was it. I'd highly recommend this piercing to anyone!
I had seen a couple people with conch piercings, and liked the look of it, so 3 days ago, I went to get it. I didn't read any experiences beforehand, so I didn't know what the pain level would be. I got my second lip piercing done right before I got my conch done, so I was ready for pain! My piercer put the dot and asked me if it looked good but I couldn't see it so I just had him pierce there anyway, I didn't really care where it was done He put the receiving tube behind my ear and told me to take a deep breath in.. I felt a sharp pinch when the needle went through.
This is one of the easiest and pain free piercings I have ever went through with. The guy who pierced me is kickass...knew exactly what I wanted and how to make sure it wouldn't migrate like these piercings tend to do. Once I picked out my jewelry... * 14 gauge labret stud *.... I was ready to get it over with. I'm the type of person to panic thinking something will always go wrong so it took over 20 minutes before I let him touch my ear. Once it was all over with I kinda felt like a whimp but I did it so whatever.
I was so scared to get my conch pierced because there were so many horror stories that I read and my friend that has like 20 piercings told me it was the only piercing that she wouldn't get. I walked into the body piercing shop freaking out, and I almost changed to getting my tragus pierced instead because I was so scared that it would be so painful. I went with my friend who got her nose pierced. She went first and the piercer literally took a total of 10 seconds to pierce her nose. My friend was amazed of how painless it was. Then it was my turn, and I was still really nervous.
I've been wanting my inner conch pierced for the longest, and last Saturday I finally got it done. Louie rocks! She pierced me about three times now. "Sweet Emotions" was playing that time. Since the apprentice never seen one, she was going to watch it happen. Another came in the tatt shop and she was prolly one of the friends, she asked if she can watch since she never seen one. So, I said okay and got a littler nervous. I got it pierced with a 14 g, and it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be (I mean the experience of having to be pierced through thick cartilage).
