I wish my tragus would heal and stop being so damn annoying. *sighs*
2 days ago, I got my nose pierced with a gun. I didn't know that you were meant to have it done with a needle and now I've read all the horror stories I'm really worried. It doesn't hurt and looks normal so far. But I was wondering should I take it out and let it heal or just continue to clean it and leave it?
Better to leave it in and let it heal. Provided they use a piercing-gun and not a Glock, you should be fine.
It is better to it done with a needle as guns cannot be cleaned properly so it means that there is a higher risk of infection, the other problem with a gun is that it can shatter the cartilage. Having said that I got mine pierced with a gun before I knew all of the risks and it was fine, if anthing awful had happen you would have noticed by now so I suggest you leave it but just remeber not to get pierced with a gun in future.
i have heard that you are less likely to be scared with a needle
As long as you keep it clean I doubt it will cause any problems. Needles are better because they leave less scar tissue but there's nothing you can do about that now.
