@wrkbrk:  I have my tragus pierced and… it kinda hurt!

Keep in mind that I have other–ahem, intimate–piercings, as well as my navel, septum, tongue, and earlobes/cartilage. I also have five tattoos.

Buuuuut, I do have exceptionally small ears/a small tragus, and I absolutley love it pierced. It took a while to heal, and it wasn’t the easiest to sleep with, but I’ve never gotten negative comments about it (I’m a teacher). 

If it makes you feel any better, I’m still considering getting my rook pierced, so it obviously didn’t scare me away too badly… πŸ™‚

Here’s mine… with my tiny tragus for reference πŸ™‚ (Even though I know the picture itself is going to be giant, lol… sorry, don’t know how to fix it!)

I had mine done when I was like 18 (it’s been out of my ear for like 7 years now, too).  I remember it hurting, but not terribly.  Mine did take quite some time to heal (not sure why).  No one made weird comments about it.  I took it out  for the whole corporate imagery.

no tragus, but I do have my rook done. it wasn’t too painful, more weird because I could hear the needle go through! Fiance had both tragus’ done, he said they didn’t hurt at all. I’m pretty sure they healed rather quickly. I had to change them for him a few times when he had a MRI done and it was quite the pain in the butt! I never change my rook because it’s really hard to!

I have my nipple pierced and I would rather pierce it a hundred times over than pierce my tragus again.

@wrkbrk:  It was a combination of the pain, the disgusting crunchy noise when it’s happening and the really annoying healing process that makes it unappealing.

My tragus piercing was very easy and pain free.  The only thing that bothered mine was when i would forget and put the phone up to my ear without thinking.

That is right after I got it done.

I got mine done about 10 months ago and it refuses to completely heal, it is always ummm crusty, but I clean it everyday and it looks fine. I knew I was allergic to cheap earrings, but the lady at the place I got it pierced (she was a professional piercer at a tattoo shop) said she had never seen anyone allergic to the surgical steel. My doctor suspects I AM allergic to the surgical steel and suggested I take it out. I refused though and am on the hunt for a 14k gold earring with a flat back so I can wear headphones! The actual piercing didn’t hurt, but when she thread the earring through I felt lightheaded. Nothing terrible though. They told me it would take 6 months to heal, and that’s about how long it took for it not to hurt to sleep on that side.

As far as corporate culture, it really depends on the people at your work and the type of culture your company has. For me, I work in the design department and another girl already had it done. In the marketing department though, a few girls I work with told me it was unprofessional and they would never see someone walk into a meeting with a piercing like that, that even double lobe piercing is never seen (I only have one lobe piercing on each side). I don’t live in a big or edgy city, I’m from small town America so there may be a difference where you live. But, I told them to stick it because I don’t have meetings with anyone from other companies and I don’t travel like they do. All my bosses just asked if it hurt, I’ve never been asked to take it out. I have long hair so I can hide it if I want, but I’ve found even if I wear my hair up no one notices.

I would NOT take it out during the day. This type of piercing is meant to stay in! You aren’t even suppose to change the earring for 6 months, even at that I was told to go back in so that they could change it for me (and for free, so I knew they were serious).
