This is what I did to my ear. I don't know why I decided to do it, all I know is that I did just decide and went and got it pierced. I had my lip pierced 3 years ago (not anymore) and this hurt a lot more. It wasn't so bad with the actual piercing bit, but it still hurt and a couple of hour after, it hurt a lot more. It's been a week now and it's healing quite well.
The guy who did my piercing was talking to me about writing because I told him I was a writer and he told me that he did a tattoo on Frank Cottrell Boyce, the writer of 24 Hour Party People and Millions. I told him that I'd met Frank at uni when he did a talk and that my tutor knows him personally. When I told my tutor this she laughed and said she'd love to know what tattoo it is. It's funny because I knew Frank was from Liverpool but that tattoo parlour was right near where I live. I didn't know he was from like round the corner from me.
