This is mine. Not at all painful- bit of freeze spray on first, then nothing more than a scratch. A bit of fiddling while the ring and beads were put in. I was warned it takes up to a year to heal, which was a surprise. I keep "accidentally" looking in a mirror to admire it.
I had my daith done 2 weeks ago. Love it! I love your earring OP, that is so pretty. I've got 8 piercings - 5 lobe and daith, helix and forward helix. Love them! I thought Hermione Norris looked great with the helix piercing.
Cartilage piercings can be a nightmare to heal. I have a rook piercing and I took the "never touch it!" advice too seriously and was a bit too hands-off even when washing. Blasting it with the shower head wasn't enough because it got infected. I then kept cleaning really meticulously and started using surgical spirit (which isn't recommended by piercers but I remember using on my earlobe piercings as a teen) and it turned out fine.
