Tell me a few things about the auricle piercing. I have only the ear loop piercing which I got done when I was a kid. The ear loop does not hurt much anyway. Getting an auricle piercing seems painful. How many of you out there have got this piercing and what are problems you have faced. Does this part of the ear get septic easily? It happened to my sister. She never had a problem with silver but a piercing over there became septic. He could not sleep on that side.
