tragus piercing advice

Heyho lads and lasses,

Just a quick one...

I kinda want to get my tragus pierced but I listen to my music with ear buds quite a lot and was wondering if anyone out there has it done what there experiences are like with headphones? I don't want to loose sound quality or anything. I also appreciate the using headphones during the healing process is a bad idea, so I wouldn't, I have successfulled healled my rook so I have a rough idea what I am doing.

Thanks guys :)

Haven't really got any solid information, but i had a friend who got it done, and she still uses earphones, i'm not sure on the specifics though. Sorry.

On a long enough time line, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

I have my tragus pierced!
I got it done about 2 years ago, it was my first cartilidge (sp?) piercing and it's still my favourite.

While it's healing DO NOT put head phones in, you're not meant to touch the piercing except when cleaning it and if you put wee head phones in it'll not only hurt but increase the risk of infection and prolong the healing process.
However, once it's fully healed (I think it takes 6 months for it to completely heal, but you can wear headphones before then) puting in headphones is not a problem, just twist the jewelery into a comfy position for you and you're grand.
I have a ring thing in my tragus, it's not a full ring and it's got wee spikes you screw on and off to remove it, I just sort of twist it round when I want to put headphones in.

I have my anti tragus in my other ear and the same applies there.
Wait till it's healed and doesn't hurt anymore :)

Aww awesome thanks. I really like how it looks with a ring, but I also love listening to my headphones... they kinda go in my ear a bit but I am sure I could change them a little if I needed to.

Goes away and thinks...

Thanks guys,

I've got both tragus' done with bars in each one. Just leave them for about a week, and then it will be fine to listen to headphones, although be careful as you put them in/out so you don't catch the jewellery.

For those doubts that swirl all around us
For those lives that tear at the seams
We know… we’re not what we’ve seen

For this dance we’ll move with each other
There ain’t no other step than one foot
Right in front of the other

~ We're marching on... ~
