My new scaffold/industrial piercing

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I just got an industrial, or scaffold as it has become popular to call it recently, piercing in my left ear, two days ago. I thought it might be interesting to post about how well it heals, and how the healing process progresses, for anyone who's interested.

So I'll backtrack a bit.

Day one - Hurt like hell getting it done, still felt a bit sore on the way home. By the evening it didn't really hurt anymore, but it got prodded a couple of times at the pub and that hurt. Needless to say, the prodders in question got a good slap.

Day two - Upon cleaning, some small scabbing and blood came away on the cotton bud. Still feels sore, but it is a bloody great hole in the cartilage of my ear. Looks clean.

Day three - A couple of good sized bits of dried blood came away on the cotton bud first time it was cleaned, less the second time. Cotton bud still looking a bit bloodstained as well.

Will post more as it happens.
