On the morning of November 9th my daughter showed me a picture of a tragus piercing. I had never seen one before but l loved it and knew i wanted one. So my daughter and I decided to go and get ours done that night. We went to Tribal Rites in Ft. Collins, Colorado. (They had done my bellybutton piercing 12 years ago.) We were taken to the room and I went first. Was a little nervous as I had read some experiences on this site and others that said it really hurt and that you could hear a crunching noise when the needle went through.
Heyyyy so i went with my best friend today and we both got our traguses done and we love them! so we went to our favourite piercing place (creations body piercing) and matt our piercer told us how it works and how everything is sanitized, matt pierced my nose cartilidge and industrial and hes done anawseome job.
I do not have a high pain tolerance when it comes to piercings. I had my Tragus done on the 22nd of February this year.
My friend and I decided to head to our local piercing studio to get our Tragus done. I made my friend go first because I wanted to see how the whole process went. She didn't even feel it, so I thought, awesome maybe mine will be like that. It hurt just a tad when he pierced it, but that was it. No pain came along after, or anything. I was so shocked. My 2nd lobes hurt worse when I got those pierced.
I am not a newbie when it comes to piercings. Especially when it comes to holes in my ears. I have 8 holes between the two ears 10 if you count the industrial as two. So when I was finally able to get my tragus done I was figuring on no problems. That I could handle anything it decided to throw at me. Oh baby was I ever wrong. The piercing went just fine. No issues, very little pain, think my nose bothered me more than the tragus. Got home and started up my normal healing rituals. Salt water soaks and healing thoughts. After about two weeks I noticed a lump forming around it.
I got my tragus done about six months ago on a whim when I was visiting my college town during the summer. I went to Spark Plug in Fredericksburg, VA, and was not impressed. The place was dirty and the management was inattentive and disorganized. My piercer handled my ear very roughly and painfully, which is saying a lot, because I have a very high pain tolerance.
In April of this year, I decided on a whim to get my tragus pierced. I went into the place that had done my tattoo the year before, and without really even consulting with them, I got it done. It hurt more than anything else I have (2 tattoos, 2 lobe piercings, and my bellybutton), and after the first half of the needle was in they had to give it an extra shove to get it through, but it wasn't too bad. It was over before it hurt too much.
Its been 6 months and its not healed at all (it still hurts a lot), but I knew before I got it done that it takes ages to heal, and I don't regret it.
I got my tragus pierced today, I also have my nose, belly button and a cartilage piercing. Personally I think nose hurts more then tragus but belly button hurts less then tragus. But if your thinking about getting your tragus done, do it it hardly hurts and it's worth it.
A few days ago I got my tragus pierced. My piercer used a clamp (which I didn't even notice was on my ear) and a curved needle. I initially felt the needle go in but it wasn't necessarily painful. I've been told that you tragus has no nerves in it so normally it's a decent piercing to do in terms of pain level. It was, however, one of my longer piercings to get done because once my piercer reached the half way point through my tragus and then really had to add an extra push for the needle to exit the back.
After getting my snug pierced, I decided I wanted to get my tragus pierced. I went down to my favoured parlour 'the piercing places' and got my favourite piercer Tom to pierce it. After going through all the details, piercing, aftercare etc he finally sat me down on the chair. He pierced it, and the pain lasted literally a nanosecond and was like someone lightly pinching you (although I've found that I have a high pain threshold).
