By Deea from Australia.
For the best part of 10 years I have been thinking of getting a piercing (other than my earlobes…where I have 2 in each lobe). Today at 27 I decided it was now or never, better to regret something you’ve done then something you haven’t.
I went to the mall where they piercing studio was…and did some serious procrastination shopping. I eventually made it round to the shop. I got the guts to walk in and ask…and was told the piercer was at lunch and I could either stay for or come back in 20 minutes. The chicken in me said I would come back. After some more shopping I put my big girl panties on and went back.
The piercer was lovely, we did forms, checked ids and finally made it out the back. She asked me to choose a material then a barbell. I chose a rather lovely titanium barbell with purple jewels in the top and bottom. The she dotted me up and got me to lay down. The clamp came next…didn’t hurt, I have pinched myself harder than the clamp felt. Then for the needle. By this stage I opte for the eyes closed…deep ‘don’t freak out’ breathing. The needle went in…it felt just the same as the needle you get giving blood. Putting the jewellery in was uncomfortable but quick.
Its been three or so hours since and I must have looked at my belly at least 20 times. It looks amazing, makes me forget about the key hole scar and the lack of six pack muscles. It doesn’t hurt but bending side ways gives me a twinge. If your thinking about it go for it…only wish I did it 10 years ago.
