    yesterday I got my rook pierced! i think it looks nice and ill like it way more when its healed

    however when I clean it it doesnt feel like im really cleaning the whole thing because its in a tight place

    so does anyone know any good aftercare methods/techniques, preferably ones that reduce the pain/bruising or speed up the healing process? thanks in advance!!

    How painful was it? Thinking of getting mine done but if it was anything like my diath I may rethink! In terms of cleaning, there really is nothing better than hot water and rock salt. This will help reduce the swelling which will in turn help reduce pain

    initially it was like intense pressure, then yesterday I accidentally knocked it and it hurt LOADS, today it's fine though
    thanks a lot!

    I have a rook too. If it's tight I find it's easiest to clean after showering/having a bath

    Aw I'm so jealous. I want a rook but can't have any more piercings for my job

    Best way to clean it is to stick your entire ear in a bowl of warm water with rock salt. It's messy but really helps sooth the area and fight infection.

    Looks amazing btw!
