I just put my new captive bead rings in my ears. In the holes in the cartiledge I just had pierced a month ago. Those things are a bitch to get closed and the bead inserted. The bead is still not secure, but I had to stop trying. You know how when something really hurts it sometimes stops hurting and just feels hot? That’s my ears.

Even though I’ve never been into cutting or much self-injury, I still seem to like doing things to myself that cause lots of pain.
