5 weeks ago I had my cartilage pierced. This was so unexpected and something I never thought I'd get done in my life!
That random Sunday, my sister begged me to go with her to Claire's Accessories in Leeds so she could get the thirds in her ears pierced. I went along for moral support and, lo and behold, walked out of the store with a shiny brand new stud at the top of my left ear.
It was a spur of the moment decision but I'm so glad I had it done because now I'm a little bit in love with it!
I'd always seen other girls my age with their cartilage pierced and thought it looked pretty cool and fashionable. I was never sure it was really 'me' though. But sometimes you've got to try things out of your comfort zone and I think this time it was worth the risk!
I can't wait until the 12 initial weeks where I have to bathe it three times a day are over - then I can change the earring and put a gold hoop in it!
In the mean time, I'm proud to have my little sparkly stud on show and, if you're thinking about getting yours done, I couldn't recommend Claire's Accessories enough!
A big thank you to the Leeds Trinity store!
