    Ok, making it a tradition now, this is a follow up of the other poll, the one about my possible eyebrow piercing [​IMG] .

    Anyways, my parents don't really alow me to get it done and since I'm under-age I need permision. So I've been thinking about getting my cartilage done, so I leave it down to you guys to decide (kinda [​IMG]).

    To get my point across:
    What I mean by a thin ring: A
    What I mean by a thick(ish) ring: B
    Aaand this is what I mean by double: C

    A [​IMG] B [​IMG] C [​IMG]

    So basically its between one or two rings, thick or thin and left or right.

    Ok, thanks for voting [​IMG], and if you've got suggestions like colours for the rings or their design etc.
    Also, I know some people get it done with a piercing gun, but I'm opting for a needle. It sounds more hygenic and not as much pressure on the skin.
    Thanks!

    I like double, but if I were you I'd get one done now, let it heal up then go back to get the second one done. Actually they might say that anyway. (it'll hurt less* and if you've never had piercings before and don't know how to keep them then it's less of a disaster if it gets infected).

    (* do cartilage piecings hurt? No idea)

    Ive heard that they do hurt a bit, especially if done by needle but it can't be too bad. About knowing how to heal piercings, I got my lobes done when I was smaller. I reckon it'll be somewhat similar.

    The idea of getting them done one at a time does have sense to it, the problem is I wouldn't be able to go to the same piercer (leaving the country) till like 6 months and it also means I'd have to wait till the second one is healed to stop having to clean my ear every day etc.

    Any colours? I was thinking maybe red if I get a ring with a coloured bead. But I'll probably just go for silver stainless steal or white gold/silver (incase of allergy).

    I have one on my left eyebrow, but I would not get one on any of my ears. I don't know I see it kinda girly. IMHO BTW.

    First choice is don't get it done. Piercing is dangerous and also unneeded. That's the best choice.

    To be honest I think ear piercings on any part of the ear other than the lobe look awful. =/
    Lip, belly button or eyebrow piercings get thumbs up from me lol. [​IMG]

    Hmmm I'm not like many of you... I think ear piercings are the only good looking ones... except some who really really fits with a lip ring...

    piercings anywhere else are... not my thing...

    ear... yeah.. those are made for piercings.. lobe.. okay... pretty standard... cartilage.. yeah that's hot!
    but... the little thing... damn.. what's it called... if you look at those pictures... the little piece of the ear in the B picture, kinda close to the letter B, near the ear hole [​IMG] (haha im bad at explaining) THAT is fucked up!

    Do it Rayor!!! [​IMG]

    Well, heres the thing. I'm going to try and get it done. If I can't well, I can say I tried.
    And I know some piecings DO look cheap and tacky, but I'm not the kind of girl that would get a Madonna or some weird Industrial piercing.

    VVoltz: I was going to get an eyebrow piercing done, they look awesome. And just to remember you, I am a girl after all, its not that bad if it looks girly [​IMG]

    Isaac: Lol I get what you mean, I'd never get that done >.<

    Thing is guys, I know its an option not to get the piercing done, but thats not going to help me decide, so if you could vote anyways. Think of it as "trying to get the best out of something bad" or "it could be worse", lol.
