Rook piercing- Day 9

Looking normal 

My ear has finally stopped hurting and the swelling has gone down although I'm pretty sure it won't be long till it's decided to react to something a swell up again. 

I woke up this morning with a totally painless and swell free ear! Which is a huge relief  as after knocking it yesterday I was seriously considering taking it out. 

Cleaning and moving the jewellery is now totally pain free.

Rook piercing- Day 8


Last night I slept on my ear which is now one of the most painful things I've done. My ear is now intensely throbbing and red. 

It has also swelled a little more than yesterday which is barely noticeable. 

I can move the bar up and down which is relatively painless although it does turn my ear red. 

The cleaning is now almost painless only hurting if I push to hard.

Rook piercing- Day 7


First of all I don't understand how this works out a day 7 when tomorrow it would be a week since I've had it done.. Oh well

This morning my ear is incredibly sensitive even my hair being on it hurts there is also alot of throbbing today which is strange as I thought it would start to feel better now.  

It's still slightly red a swollen which hopefully will start to go down soon.

Rook piercing- Day 6

Itchy itchy itchy..

This morning I woke up with the most incredibly itchy ear which is a sign of it healing hallelujah!

Touching and cleaning my ear has become alot less painful but I'm still wary of sleeping or lying on it. 

There's a tiny bit more swelling since yesterday but it's only noticeable if you look up close. I haven't had anymore crust or blood since it's been done.

Rook piercing- day 5

This morning I woke up with no pain which was a surprise as before I went to sleep I pushed the bar up an down which was a stupid thing to do as it felt like I was being stabbed for inside my ear. 

The cleaning part is relatively painless just a slight throb when I turn the bar to clean behind it. I've found that having a cup of warm sea salt water with my ear dipped in for 5-10 minutes really helps the to get rid of the pain.  

As far as swelling goes I've only had a small amount which is not what I expected, I was thinking that my whole ear would swell and go bright red.

Rook piercing- Day 4

Woke up with absolutely no pain!! *hallelujah* I managed to not sleep on it or even touch it in the night which I defiantly think has helped with having no pain this morning. 

It's still slightly red which I'm guessing is right with an new piercing especially a cartilage piercing. It's still too painful to touch but I'm hoping  that will sort it's self out in the next couple of days.

Rook piercing- Day 3


I slept on my ear last night by accident and then woke up and punched it.. Probably wasn't the best thing I could of done as now my ear is killing and bright red! 

Still I have no swelling yet but I'm pretty sure in the next 2 days my ear is going to swell, I'm hoping this pain will go away with a paracetamol *fingers crossed*. 

I get asked to describe the pain which is a hard thing to do as it differs from day to day, one day it could be just a numb slight throbbing or like today it could be a huge throbbing and cheese grater rubbing along your skin and bone feeling.

Rook piercing- Day 2

Woke up this morning with a slight throbbing in my ear which was nothing too major. 

My ear hasn't swollen yet but I was told to expect that around day 3-5, which I'am NOT looking forward to! 

There was only a small amount of blood and crust around the holes.

Rook piercing- Day 1

Today I got my rook pierced which I was absolutely terrified about because I watch videos of other people getting it done and they were saying how much it hurt! 
The piercer used a needle and the actual piercing didn't hurt and I didn't feel the needle, it bled a little but after I cleaned it it hasn't bled again so far. 

After a couple of hours it started to throb and sting a little, it's still to painful to touch or even think about moving. 

It cost £25 and was defiantly worth the pain so far.. 

Just after I got it done and after it was cleaned.
