I just had a consultation with my piercer/good friend Chris. We've made wonderful plans to finish my ears. He's going to order all the tools/jewelry on Wednesday, and I think as soon as the supplies get in we'll begin!
The first thing is to punch my inner conch
. I already have a 12g ring there, and we're just going to punch that sucker out. I'm going to end up with a 2g tunnel.
I'm going to have someone (with a strong stomach) record the entire thing, and you can bet your ass it's going on the internet.
I'm also going to eat the bit of leftover skin. Chris is definitely not a big fan of that part.
After that's healed we're going to put two dermal anchors
at either temple, right in front of each ear. After the initial healing phase I'm going to have the discs replaced with flat silver stars. Chris wants me to get bolt heads (a la Frankenstein's monster) but I like dainty things.
Finally we're going to do something with my right ear. My left ear
is done (minus the punch). I'm happy with all the jewelry in there (besides the lobes). My right ear
is pretty empty at the top, though. Chris is going to bend some jewelry and we're going to do something like this: lol mspaint
. I want to call it a reverse orbital, but I'm sure there's a better name for it.
(Ignore the naked lobes, I'm trying to thicken my lobes so I gave them an emu oil massage and now they're just relaxing.)
During all of this I'll still be steadily stretching my lobes. My goal for years was 0g, but now I'm leaning towards 9/16" or 3/4". I haven't decided, and I'm sure I won't until I get up there.
