I finally got my cartilage pierced. It's been 3 days since I've had it done and it's just slightly sore, not red at all. I'm hoping it stays that way! I've heard that they take quite a bit longer to heal. So far, I have two piercings in each each, with the cartilage in my left ear pierced. Also, I have my belly button pierced. I don't want to get my face all pierced up, but I'm kinda hooked now! lol. I'm wondering what else I could get pierced. =P What do you have pierced? And if you have cartilage pierced, where, how, and how long did it take to heal?

I really want to get my cartilage pierced. Did it hurt as much as people say it does? ALOT? I have my belly button pierced, and six piercings total on both ears. One on the top and two on the bottom on both sides and the other has a piercing in the middle.

I really don't like piercing at all. I once thought of getting my belly button pierced and THANK GOD I changed my mind. I do prefer my body as it is, and if I want to habe some accessories on me, I prefer necklaces, bracelets, and non-piercing stuff

My friend (who has SEVERAL gauged out...um...private piercings, and a septum piercing gauged out to 4) ended up taking his cartilage piercings out after months of having them because they hurt as though they were brand-new... Some people say it never stops hurting others keep em. I would like to get a couple industrial piercings...but it's so expensive...whenever I go to get one I think to myself "I could get this ONE piercing or I could get 2 facial piercings..." then I end up with the facial piercings... :)

Yikes, I can hear the sound of that cartilage while piercing and wow I hope it does not hurt as I imagine it to be. I wish you well and I hope it will heal soon. I have seen others who have pierce on their tongue and I cant imagine myself having those pierce on my body, I know I will not be able bear the pain and I know I dont have enough courage to do that.
