Latest piercing - Transverse Lobe *pics* Well as of a couple of days back I added this piercing to my collection. (sorry the photos aren't great, will try and get some better ones) The piercer I went to had only done a couple of these (although she has been piercing for a looong time), and I think she was pretty keen to get to do the piercing. Was expecting a moderate amount of pain, but in the end the pain was fairly minimal, the actual piercing took a bit longer, because instead of doing it in one push, she had to do it slowly, to make sure she didn't get to close to the surface. One final push through the other side, slide the bar in and it was on. For a couple of hours afterwards it was a bit red and swollen and the piercer said I could expect some bruising (which you can see at the back of the ear, but not the front) She said to be careful sleeping on it, but I've had no problems. Out of all the stuff I've had done (tongue, labret, PA) this is easily the least trouble during the healing period. Very happy with the final result, and a bit of a different lobe piercing.
