: hey, idk how long ago you posted it but i saw you have an industrial piercing. mine was done yesterday and keeps bleeding on and off but should i clean it every single time it bleeds or not? i dont know whether this would irritate the piercing or stop infections? thanks! x
hey love!, They bleed due to being moved. Have you knocked it? or slept on it? It’s a good idea to clean it every time it bleeds yes, but don’t over do it. The salt water does dry it out a little, and that also causes inflammation. just keep on top of it, make sure it doesn’t get knocked or caught on anything (they tend to do that a lot!!) xx
: Hi Isabelle ! I'm Afet and I was going through the "industrial piercing" tag and saw your post about your experience with getting it pierced. :) I also wanna get mine done sometime this or next week, I was wondering how much it cost? And how long the healing process took? Thanks :) 💕
It cost me $70, but it’s different everywhere :) usually it ranges between $50-$90. Industrials take a while to heal (6-12 months) because of the cartilage. If you can, try not to sleep on it, that causes irritation and inflammation. Make sure you clean it, because it does get crusty during the first three-four weeks. :) goodluck honey! tell me how it goes!!
: Hey ! What are the risks of getting an industrial ? And what are the chances of your ear collapsing ? :)
the first thing i’ll mention about getting it pierced (ad this applies to most piercings in the cartilage) is to ALWAYS request a needle. I hate needles, but i’d rather have one than have my cartilage chattered by a gun. make sure you trust the piercer and it’s in a place that has a good rep. It’s a VERY VERY slim chance that your ear will collapse, usually thats because of unclean or uneducated piercers. Just make sure you do your research :) x
: What was wrong with your other ear which meant you couldn't get the scaffold piercing that side? :)
The part which the bar goes over (like the space in between the two piercings) it was too far out and if it was pierced in that ear, the middle of the bar would be touching my skin. It’s hard to explain, but it really pissed me off! haha x
