i couldn’t find a way to message you, but: it hurt a lot!! more than any piercing i have had. there is a lot of cartilage right there so there were two very loud distinct crunch-pop sounds. initially it is not so bad but it settles very quickly into a loud pain that envelops the whole side of your head! today it feels fine though, as long as i don’t tuck my hair behind my ear. all in all v worth it, would recommend, but would recommend going to a very good experienced piercer who can do it pretty quickly!
