Bleeding is due to the small vessels in the ear cartilage having been cut. Partly due to the piercer not looking at the cartilage piercing carefully enough to avoid damaging the vessels structures. Bleeding will occur with all cartilage piercings, how much depends on the location of the vessels.

Don't clear the clots away from the piercing (this is the bodies way of plugging the leak) allowing the clots to stay for 24 hours will allow the body to close the damaged vessels from the inside out. Washing the piercing under running water will rinse the clots away and not irritate the piercing thus preventing the piercing from bleeding again. The bleeding should ease within 24 ~ 48 hours.

Well what did you do to it? Look surface piercings are the hardest piercings to take care of and protect from snagging and out side irritation.

The answers I have read have said that the problem isn't the piercing but the after care. They have said that it can take up a year or more to heal and sleeping and long hair can be a big problem. Some have suggested just to have two piercings and no bar because that was what caused all the problems.

How long till the serious pain of your industrial piercing goes away so that you are able to sleep on your ear again?

When I got mine done the pierce said that it would hurt on its own for about a month then after that it will only hurt when you hit it or get it caught on something. When I went to get a consultation they said it was better if you get it on the ear you don't sleep on because sleeping on it can irritate it, but if you do want to sleep on it wait about a month and make sure to change your pillow case 3 times a week.

Is a lot of redness normal after having your belly button pierced for a week?

Redness around the top exit point of the piercing is not uncommon, this area is more subject to irritation from sleeping, clothing and the day to day encounters surface tissue would be subjected to. Now if the tissue is swollen or distended and the redness is not localized to the close area of the piercing exit point and extends further than the piercing, chances are good you are reacting to the aftercare solution or cleaner you have been provided. It would be a good idea to go back and see your piercer and let he/she have a look at the piercing to ensure it's healing properly (there should be no charge for this service from the studio that did the piercing).

What do you do if your belly button piercing is healing to the side?

I would suggest not sleeping on your stomach wearing tight shirts, or pants that are too high. Since you probably have a ring piercing than it would definitely be more noticeable if its leaning to one side, but when you switch it for a barbell it wont matter. But if it's really bothering you then try leaning the piercing down on the opposite side, that's what i did for mine and now its fine, it's probably just been leaning to one side to much.

How long after getting a cartilage piercing should it be all right to sleep with the earring out?

Theres no way to predict that. Everyone is different. There isn't really a reason why you shouldn't be comfortable sleeping with jewelry in. Try studs, rings, and horse shoes to see which works out best. Putting jewelry in and out irritates the piercing. I don't risk leaving piercings naked until they're at least a year old.
