i have to agree - i got my tragus pierced, and it hurt for, um, over a year, i believe. then i lost an earring and one of the piercings closed up - i felt to lopsided that even though it hurt so bad, i had it re-pierced. i’m never taking them out again!
i love it! it looks great on you!:cheering:
i did mine in 87 before there were piercing studios so i went to a biker tattoo shop and asked them to stick a piercing gun up my nose which they did for five bucks. i got weird looks, but ultimately they didnt care what some kid punk was gonna do.
when my friend kk bought a piercing gun, i tried and tried to get it to pierce the cartilage between my two nares, but it just bled everywhere. in a couple of years i could have gotten it done professionally, but i had given up.
i got a real job in 94 and cut off my dreds and took out my piercings. i miss it still.
:cheering:looks really good! congrats! :cheering:
It looks amazing!!! And YOU! The Sock Tutorial Goddess! You are gorgeous too!
I think it looks great on you! And you look great too!
Thank you, thank you everyone!!!
I love it, but right now, I feel like I have a big booger in my nose. :ick: :teehee:
You might actually have a bloody little booger up there. I did for a day or two after I had mine pierced. If it’s just the jewelry, fear not! You’ll get used to it in a few more days.
I’m glad you went with the receiving tube. Did he give you an option, or is that just how he does it?
PS - It looks FANTASTIC! It makes me want to get mine done again…
It’s actually not a booger up there, it’s the jewelry. I’ve blown my nose but it’s still bugging me so I know it’s the jewelry. Besides, I’ve looked… I have a lil flashlight and mirror. lol I hope I get used to it soon.
The piercer had a pair of tongs out on his little cart so I got nervous that he was gonna use them, but he didn’t. He didn’t ask me, just used the receiving tube on his own. I was very glad he did. lol He was great… really informative and careful. I did get a little woozy afterwards cause it had been like 5 hours since my last meal and I guess my blood sugar level dropped. DH grabbed me a handful of Skittles from a candy machine and that fixed me up. Mike, the piercer, fanned me with a tray the whole time and told me to sit as long as I needed to. He was a good guy and I’ll definitely go back to him if I decide to get another hole punched in me.
Hah, I’ve been saying all weekend that I felt like I had a booger stuck to the outside of my nose, but it’s just the jewelery
PS - there are pictures, but Dilly has them, so I’ll post some after she gets home and sends them to me.
It looks great!!!
Congrats on the piercing! they really to get addictive like tattoos, at least for me.
I have 3 tattoos, 2 I love that are the figure 8’s for infinity, and 1 I hate I’m not even going to say.
I also have lots of piercings. hmmmm… both nipples, tongue, 3 ear, nose, lip, oh and belly button. all are out except the tongue and the ears. I never found the right stud for my nose, the nipples just got infected ( I have a weird reaction to my birth control where my nipples seep fluid sometimes) (was that too much info???) the lip had to come out for work, still put it in sometimes though, I love that piercing, and the belly button kept getting infected from rubbing on my pants even though I’ve had it over 15 years.
I like that piercings can go out and back in, not permanent like tattoos.
Interesting! I can’t remember any peculiar or different experience when I got my piercings. I just remember pain every piercing I had but they’re bearable tho’. And all healed nicely. I just love showing off my piercings and the nice pieces I got from a wholesaler I found online, achadirect.com. They’ve got a wide variety to choose from at a good price although the minimum order is around 150$ or so.
