Ear turning purple after attempted piercing? ?
Hi, I’m 19 years old and about 2 days ago I tried to pierce my own ear with a needle. (Dumb I know) then, I tried pushing a regular stud through and it wouldn’t go through. I gave up and now it’s beginning to turn purple. Does this look like anything I should be concerned about or should I just treat it as any other piercing and clean it?

You've just bruised it.

The purple is likely bruising. If it get hot or red or leaking pus, you need to see about a possible infection (if there is pus, there is no question, it's infected).
