it's either an industrial or that little thing in the middle of your ear in front of the hole.
Just with I was thinking! If it's a daith, don't listen to what they say! It's wicked cute! If it helps, try switching to something more colorful! Or even better, see if you can get a custom bent hoop! I got my daith pierced not too long ago and my hoop is heart-shaped! My piercer is well-known for doing custom bent heart-shaped daith piercings, or "earhearts," as she calls them! :) No matter what ear piercing it is, you rock for getting it! Cool ear piercings ftw!
A dude with an earheart would be awesome! (I think it's possible to do an ear-star as well, but it's harder to do and doesn't come out as pointy and defined). Oh and in case anyone is wondering... http://img687.imageshack.us/img687/6261/photo145x.jpg this is my daith/earheart (so, yeah it's kind of in a hearing aid place). It's at a weird angle in this pic because it is really tough to take a good pic of one's own ear in Photobooth haha, so it's not the best example of mine's shape (unless you wanna see a pic of me looking all icky after walking around town after getting it...) :P
I wanted an anti eyebrow but I ended up settling for a regular one. I'm at 4s and don't plan on going much higher. maybe 0s. I want snakebites, too. I only have to get the right side then. it'd look pretty cool with my labet in the middle. I'm definatly the one to ask about piercings haha. btw, never NEVER get venoms. (two through each side of your tongue, through the muscles). they hurt really bad and they don't sit right. and take forever to heal. I had mine for three months and didn't eat solid food for a month and a half. I took them out to much relieve. yes, they were cool. but they rubbed on my gums pretty bad. bad enough if I had them for a few years, I'd probably woulda had a lot of gum erosion.
#132, I bought tapers and tapered them myself. I did it over about 4 1/2 months. I would have done it quicker, but I didn't always get to by my tapers as quick as I wanted to. I went from about an 18-16-14-8-6-4. NEVER SKIP SIZES. I skipped from a 14 to an 8 because I couldn't find 12-10 tapers. I bled pretty bad and had a blowout, but I luckily healed. what I did was buy 16 and 14 g rings and put those in when the my ear didn't hurt. then I bought the other tapers. I'd put them in as far a they could go after a hot shower. I slept with the tapers in, then a tad forcefully pushed the rest of the taper through the next day. then after another shower, I'd take the tapers out, clean them, let the blood and stuff come out of my ear, then put the tapers in. it hurt, but it healed quite fast. once you get to your desired size, be sure to get plugs, tapers can get annoying. also be sure to not just get a metal pair. metal is quite heavy and sometimes it's best to switch to a plastic pair to give your ears a break. and try and clean your plugs every day. I hoped this helped! :) feel free to ask more questions. :)
