I was contacted by a piercing wholesale company who asked me if I'd like to try some samples from them. And since I was just thinking about getting some new piercings (like 5 minutes before) I said yes! 

But because I got so many piercing jewellery (for all my piercings), I decided to make three posts instead of just one. The first one is all about the tragus piercings I got and tried

The other two will be about the daith and septum piercings I received. Let's see what I got and what I think of them, shall we?


A tragus piercing is the perforation of the tragus, which projects immediately in front of the ear canal, for the purpose of inserting and wearing a piece of jewelry. The piercing itself is usually made with a small gauge hollow piercing needle, and typical jewelry would be a small diameter captive bead ring or small gauge post style piercing jewelry. Read more on Wikipedia.

I remember when I first heard about tragus piercings - I was 16 and I thought it was some sort of "dirty" body part. And that memory stayed with me, so I got one. I think I was silly, but I still love my piercing.

Anyway, I got a bunch of piercings to try - they all came packaged in single baggies. 


There they are! Sadly some of them weren't the right size for me (as in length since I prefer longer bars - at least 8mm). 


One of them looked really wonky and not well made, so that one didn't make the cut. The ill-sized also didn't get in my "to wear" bunch. But there were 5 of them that I could wear and would wear. 

Classic Clear Gem Labret

This one is a flat clear gem that is well, very classic. When I first got my tragus pierced I was looking for a flat jewellery for it, but it was hard to find. Luckily nowadays it's easier to find them. It has internal threading which is something I like when it comes to the tragus piercing.

It's an easy type of jewellery to wear, plus it's comfortable to sleep in. I have nothing bad to say about it. In fact, I think it's lovely!


Pink Classic Gem Labret

This is another variation of the upper flat piercing jewellery. It has internal threading which is something I prefer. It's comfortable, looks pretty and is one of the staple styles in my piercings collection. I am a fan of flat piercings for my tragus as it doesn't dig into the skin of it while I'm sleeping on my ear. 


Pink Ball Labret

This is one of the piercings I wasn't so sure that I'd like wearing. It didn't look all that hot until I put it on. It has external threading. I had to switch the bar it came with as it was too short, but since I always have a bunch of those in my collection, I didn't mind. It's a flatter type of ball, which is something I have never seen before. It makes it interesting and very comfortable to sleep in. It isn't my first choice of piercing jewellery, but it's Okay.


Clear Tragus Internally Threader Bar

This is one of the styles that is noticeable from far away. It's also one of the less comfortable styles of jewellery because of the big stone. Such stones usually sink a bit in the piercing hole (during sleep) and thus can get a bit uncomfortable. But boy does it look pretty! 


Faux Opal Tragus Piercing

I am a huge opals fan. I love them. They are the most interesting type of stone. I am not crazy about diamonds, but opals? Yes, please! 
The bar it came with was again too short, but the ball was compatible with another labret I had laying around. It's externally threaded which is fine with old piercings but can be a bit tricky with fresh ones. I also received a flat style of jewellery with opals, but sadly it was too short and the pretty part was fixed on the bar. This piercing looked amazing in the sun but was tricky to photograph. Actually, it looks a bit creepy on the photo. 


I am always up for getting new piercing jewellery. Sometimes you can see right away when one of them isn't made as well as it should be. But other times it takes time to see how it reacts to wear and tear. I think most of the piercings I got to try are pretty lovely. There were, of course, some duds in the bunch, but I am glad I got to pick the ones I will wear. Most of the jewellery is decently made but then again I'm not a person who would spend hundreds on a piercing jewellery. I prefer my piercings to be made from body-safe materials (I am a fan of titanium) and that it looks pretty. If it comes at a great price, I'm not the one to complain. You get the gist. 
From the bunch, I really like the flat piercings as they are a staple in my collection.
