Because M asked so nicely. Here’s a terribly drawing/diagram of how to prevent plug loss at gigs.
Friends lobe got ripped at a show.
Hahahaha. Look at that taper in the second lobe piercing…
Also, fucking ouch.
Whenever I go to gigs, I usually put in a silicone eyelet, then take a big hoop earring (because I’m a girl, and cool.) and slip it through the silicone eyelet, then put the post through my cartilage piercing. Bing bang boom, safe ears. I get weird looks, but my ears are safe. There are various other methods of doing this too, but you should always make your ears safe before going into a pit.
