Being the person that I am, I got a new piercing last Friday evening. I had wanted an industrial for some time but never had the funds or perhaps the guts to do it. I went to Tattoo Machine in Puyallup, WA. I highly recommend them. Jenny my piercer was great. She let me babble because I tend to do that when I'm nervous. She told me what she was doing the whole time. It didn't hurt near as bad as I thought it would. It been 5 days now. My ear is healing well. I accidentally slept on it one night and woke up at about 3am with throbbing pain. It made it very painful the next day. Sea salt soaks work wonders and feel so good. If you have even tried to do a sea salt soak on your ear that is probably the most difficult area. I feel like I have to dunk half my head in a bowl of warm sea salt water every day. I ended up getting the H2Ocean stuff and so that made it easier to do at work. I am really happy with my piercing so far. I still have lots of healing ahead of me. The total healing time is 4-12 months.
