Faux snug piercing

Hi everyone just wanted to ask if anyone has heard of a faux snug piercing and has anyone got one? I'm really liking the look of them but just wanted to know do they hurt? As its 2 piercings does that mean you pay fully for 2? Would you recommend? Thankyou

    I haven't got one, but I've had a few other piercings. Usually they're priced for the entire piercing and most places include basic jewellery too. Ask the piercer you're considering visiting what the price includes, as it does vary. 

    If you've only had your lobes pierced, or have no piercings, then hopefully you're aware that they use a needle, not a gun for this sort of thing. If you go somewhere willing to use a gun for this sort of piercing I'd run, not walk, away from there.

    I think the closest I've had is an industrial - through a different cartilage in the ear, and it was fairly painful - but the pain lasts a second, if that, so I found it easy to deal with. The closest non-piercing thing I can think of is it's like stepping on a plug. Absolutely horrible for no time at all. 

    It looks like a fun piercing, but I ended up taking my industrial out within weeks because I wear big over-ear headphones too much and it was getting irritated. Always something to consider with ears! 
  • Thankyou for your reply. I have a daith and tragus, daith was quite painful but bearable. Emailed the piercer he said it would be £40 plus depending on jewellery.
