I had a blowout in the top hole on my left ear. The skin at the back swelled up and I decided to go straight to the piercer and ask his advice. He told me I had two options – take the piercing out and rest it, or take the piercing out and put a longer bar through in the hope that the swelling would go down with a piercing still in.

I opted for the first option. I’d rather not play around with these things, after all, I can always have a go again next year. He did comment that my ears have quite complicated cartilage structures down the helix and that not all people can take piercings in all places. I’ve still got three in, which is quite a good level for my lesser pierced ear, and five in my right ear.

It’s now a couple of days since I had it removed and it’s settled down nicely and the lump has gone. I think that was a good save.

In other news this week, I finally decided to do it, I’ve actually bought a gopro. The genuine article, rather than the previous “action cameras” I had, which were quite frankly, garbage. It’s the truth that you should never cut corners on stuff like this.

Finally, I’m now fully vaccinated again, having had my third jab. Pfizer this time. It’s been a bit of a week for needles this week!
