If You Could Get Something Else Pierced, What Would It Be?

I only have pierced ears and now that I have solved the whole allergy problem I've been having ever since I had them pierced, I keep wanting to pierce something else. I really wanted to get an industrial piercing (the one that goes through two spots on the top of your ear cartilage). But then I realized my ears are really the wrong shape for that because it can't bypass the spot it needs to without going through it. So that isn't going to work. But I'm seriously considering a cartilage piercing on one ear. Or maybe a second hole on both, except that I got mine done right smack in the center so it's going to be hard to make a second hole look nice. I do like nose screws as well, but I think I might have the wrong type of nose for it. I also like eye brow piercings, on other people. I think that for me, I'd have to take it out eventually for work anyway (even at my current job I'd have to wear something that hides it). So I think if I get something else done, it will almost definitely be the upper ear cartilage. So what about you? What else would you pierce?

Hello Pigglies! I am really considering getting a little nose piercing! I have my tongue and below my bottom lip done. I also had my eyebrow done, but my body rejected it. I also have problems with allegies. I have my cartlidge done and it doesn't hurt, sometimes it's a pain to keep your hair out of it. Good luck and I hope you get it done! If you don't like it you can always remove it, it's not permanent like a tattoo. Good luck, and I hope to exchange new piercing storys with you soon! Have a wonderful night!

I always wear my hair up, so I figured it wouldn't bother anything to have the cartilage pierced. Glad to know it doesn't hurt. I thought the ear one hurt a bit, but I had my ears pierced with a 16G needle and then had captive bead rings put in. The piercing itself didn't hurt, putting on the rings hurt a bit though. Not too bad though, I'm still glad I did it that way instead of at the mall. My body tried to reject my earrings because apparently I am allergic to stainless steel, sterling silver, and 18K gold. But now that I figured out the secret, that PTFE (Teflon) or glass work just fine in my ears, I am ready to get something else pierced. I'll just make sure that something like titanium or Teflon can be put into that piercing. That's what I'm figuring is that at least piercings aren't permanent if I don't like it later in life. That's the main reason I have no tattoos. I am a bit worried that ear stretching might be somewhat permanent though, I'm still debating how far I'm going with that. But yes, I definitely hope to exchange new piercing stories with you soon! And who knows, maybe sometime I will get that cute little nose piercing too. I do like it, I just can't decide if I have the right nose.

I would pierce my tongue. I love tongue piercings but my hubby who has gone conservative on me doesn't want me to get one. So I try to please him by not getting one. Others I had thought about was my eyebrow and the labret. I love the labret on other people but like you I'm not sure about it on me. I never really had any desire to get the upper cartilage pierced for me.

I'm sure my girlfriend would love it if I got my tongue pierced, but I guess the main thing that keeps me from doing anything to my tongue is that I play harmonica. And so therefore, I need my tongue intact. Sometimes I forget that not everyone plays the harmonica. I was watching some show were people got their tongues forked and I'm sitting there wondering, "But how on earth does that guy play the harmonica now?" And then I realized, he probably doesn't.

LAMO! Yeah I can see why you wouldn't do that. I'm among those who don't play the harmonica :)

When I got my ears pierced at the one shop I told them how a lot of my relatives had problems with 14K gold, and they only used 316 stainless steel there. Which unfortunately, I was allergic to. I also have problems with gold and silver. But now I finally have a longer list of things I don't have a problem with: pyrex glass, acrylic, and Teflon.

Considering all the trouble I've had with the one ear peircing I got done (1 hole each ear) I wish I hadn't gotten it done and would never consider another one.

You know, if you had asked me this question a month ago, I'd have had the same response as you. Now that I finally figured out that as long as I'm using non-metal earrings, my ears are great, I'm so tempted to pierce something else.

If i could get something else pierced it would be a third hole in my ear. That is the only place. Sometime when you buy earrings they come in a set of 3 or 2. I'm short one hole in my ear. I only have to but I would like a third one.

I've never bought any earrings that came with smaller ones for other holes, but I think my friend who has 2 holes in each ear buys some like that sometimes. I find earrings in larger gauges that I want a lot nowadays, but never with an extra pair.

If you'd like second or third holes on your ear lobes, but your current ear piercing is right in the center, why not just let it close up and then get it re-pierced? That's what my sister did; she kept her earrings out for weeks and eventually the holes closed up. Then, she got three holes done on each of her ear lobes all in one day. Came out quite nicely. Anyway, I'm considering getting another cartilage piercing on one of my ears (probably my right ear again, since my left cartilage got terribly infected once and as a result, I subconsciously consider it a cursed ear or something). I'm thinking about getting my nose pierced possibly (I love the way it looks with colorful saris), but I already have a lip piercing, and maybe a nostril piercing on top of that would be asking for a bit too much leniency in the workplace.

My ears would grow back very very quickly, and I actually did consider letting them grow back before. Due to them being allergic to everything I wore for the past 3 years, my holes have slightly shifted so that they are not matched perfectly anymore. But now that I'm stretching, it's already starting to be not noticeable. I think that the spot the holes are in is good for stretching too. Plus I absolutely hate how the super low ear piercing looks on old people, so I don't want to end up with it there once I am old (usually that's caused by having your ears done as a baby I've heard though, but still I'm not taking any chances). I thought both of my ears were cursed at one point. ;) I'm thinking if I get something that would be unacceptable at work, I'll just wear clear glass in it. And I work in an office, so basically, anything is unacceptable. But even people with giant tattoos just cover them and as long as things are covered, they're overlooked.

I have 2 piercing in each of my earlobes. Never had a problem with those. I got the upper part of the cartilage pierced about 15 yrs ago and they never would heal. I tried everything for months and no luck. I ended up taking out the earrings and they healed over finally. I did consider a nose piercing many years ago but with all the trouble I had with my upper ears I wasn't willing to try cartilage piercing again. So I'm sticking with what I have and I think I'll leave it at that. I have been thinking about a new tattoo thought it's been almost 20 yrs since my last one. Hubby has been wanting to get his very first one, so maybe we could get matching tattoos or something.

That's what I'm afraid of, that the cartilage piercing wouldn't heal on me. But I think as long as I use titanium, it should be fine. Even doing the salt water and anything else I could think of, my ear lobes never healed until I finally put in Teflon. I've wanted to get a tattoo of a small lizard on my shoulder blade area for awhile now. But I'm too afraid that I might be being impulsive here like I usually am. So I'm going to wait about 5 years and if I still want it, I'll get it done. I think tattoos can look really nice if done properly.

Well I plan on getting my belly pierced again as well as my "south" regions again and I'm thinking on getting my eyebrow done as well....

Is the belly piercing easily rejected? Or you just let it close up? I like eyebrow rings, but my eyebrows aren't very pretty so I don't want to accent them. I'm trying to get in shape for the belly piercing, but I'm kind of reconsidering that one as I can't think of when I ever show my belly.

I got my ears pierced the first time when I was 17 and the second time when I was like mid-20's. I've since let the second ones close and keep posts in the first ones (actually one post from each time I got them pierced). I don't ever see me getting anything pierced. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I have my ears and my naval pierced but don't think I'd get anything else done now! x
