My Inverted Industrial Bar

The last time I posted about my piercings I was talking about my cartilage piercings that were my first ones since getting my original earlobe piercings where I was 8 years old. You can check out that post HERE if you're interested

After getting those last piercings, I wasn't entirely sure what I was going to get next or even if I wanted to get any others. My friend who had gone with me spent a lot of time talking to me about different types of piercings and the potential pain scale. After talking to her about it for a while, I decided on getting an industrial bar (I'll insert a picture here)

Industrial Bars are a really unique looking piercing, and at least where I live there aren't a lot of people who have them. 

I waited a few weeks after I made the initial decision about what I wanted so that I could be sure that I would like the look of it (and have the funds to be able to get it).

I picked a date and actually went in alone to the parlor! I explained to the piercer, the same guy who had done my cartilage previously, what I wanted. He looked at my ear for like half a second and said that the industrial bar that I was planning on most likely wouldn't look right on my ear because of the shape. He then suggested that I get in Inverted Industrial Bar, he said that it would be a bent barbell that would go vertically through my ear rather than horizontally. 

At the time I felt ready for anything, so even though I wouldn't get a lot of time to think about it and what it would look like, I said I was down for whatever he thought would be unique and would look awesome! 

He drew the marks on my left ear, taking his time to make sure that they would line up correctly, and then he bent a barbell to fit my ear. He did let me check the marks to be sure it was what I wanted, but I didn't look at them too hard because I knew he put them in the best places for it to look really great.

I absolutely love it! It wasn't something that I had thought about getting, but I love how it turned out and how it looks. It's something I'd never seen before, so I'm really happy about the level of uniqueness because that's one of the main things that I was going for.

For the pain scale, the conch part of the piercing hurt by far the worst. The top portion hurt the same as the other cartilage piercings I got on my other ear.

It did bleed a lot the day that I got it done, but after that it didn't really bleed or hurt at all. It stayed really sensitive for a few weeks, so I couldn't let anything touch it or jostle it at all.

It really doesn't give me any problems now, and it doesn't hurt at all anymore. I'm really happy with it and how it looks! But I'm really not planning on getting any more any time soon. I do have ideas for which piercings I'd like to get in the future, but at this point I think I need to give my ears a bit of a break before I get any more.

Thanks for sticking around and reading! I'd love to know what you think about this inverted industrial bar!

I'll see you on Tuesday
