5 years ago i began this obsession with piercing most of my pinna and a couple of facial orifices: rook, double helix, tragus, nose, triple ear lobe. one time i even considered stretching my ear lobe piercing.

a couple months ago i took out my double helix piercing. my cartilage looks disgustingly distorted now, just as my mother predicted all those moons ago.

a few days ago i took out my rook piercing. this one left only a little indentation.

maybe i’ll just keep my right tragus ring for posterity’s sake.

expunging my piercings shouldn’t mean anything but somehow i feel like it does.

no more “does that hurt?!” i suppose
