I have heard that it hurts for almost a year, but that doesn't sound right.

I got my cartilage done on both ears (I thought it would feel weird with only one ear done, because I had four in each to begin with) and it only really hurt for a week or two. After that, it only hurt when my hair got caught on it or something hit it. I was told to leave the original jewelry in for at least two months, but I'm a risk taker and changed them a whole week early. So much risk. Anyways, I've had them for about half a year, but they don't hurt at all anymore, even if I pull on them.0
