How long do conch piercings hurt?
Similarly, it is asked, how long should a piercing be sore?
It is normal for your ear to hurt immediately after getting a cartilage piercing, pain that commonly lasts for two weeks to a month. Be careful to not sleep on the side that was pierced: Doing so will cause healing complications and unnecessary discomfort.
Similarly one may ask, how painful is the conch piercing?
The pain level depends upon which method you're using to have your conch pierced. If you're using a needle, it won't be too bad – it will feel the same as a helix piercing and it will hurt a little more than getting your earlobe pierced. The pain level won't be overwhelming.
It did take 15 months for my latest to be healed enough to sleep on. I've had my conch done for about a month (with a labret stud) and in terms of sleeping on the side its pierced it can be uncomfortable if pressure is put on it for too long, but after the swelling calmed down about 2 weeks in its been bearable.
