I’m 20 years old and I just got mine pierced yesterday.
I went to a local shop that has an extremely good reputation. I’m a bit of a germaphobe so I made sure to ask him about how he cleans the instruments used and if he used a new needle every time. It turns out my piercer was a germaphobe so everything was extremely clean, thank God!
Anyway, he began the piercing and got through the first layer of skin, but apparently I have tough skin and he had a lot of trouble piercing the top layer. He had to adjust his grip and apply a lot of force. I must admit…it hurt. But I can take pain so I got through it with a few muttered ows.
But then I started getting light headed, hot, and sick to my stomach. When I tried to stand, I almost passed out. I spent the rest of the day on the verge of passing out or throwing up. It was terrible.
But today I feel fine and I love the piercing. But if someone had told me it was going to such that much, then I probably wouldn’t have gotten it done.
