I finally gave in and got my nose--my nostril--pierced.
I'd been wanting to do it for a long time but kept putting it off, trying to decide between nose and eyebrow and whether or not I was too chicken for either.
But finally I walked into a shop that is two minutes from my house, asked a few questions, and got it done.
I'm so glad I did it! It's really cute.
I'd watched a few YouTube videos of people being pierced, and seriously, this was much easier and less painful than those videos made it seem--at least for me.
It was so quick. There was a little touch of pain which I don't even remember now, and then it was over. The jewelry going in hurt a little bit, but nothing near as much as it hurt when I got my cartilage piercing on my ear. Now THAT hurt. For months. This? Two days later and I forget it's there.
There was a little bleeding, but I'm a bleeder so I expected that. Barely any swelling, just...surprisingly easy and awesome. ;)
I'm sure it's not the same with everyone, but other than the anxiety from not knowing how it'd be, it was a piece of cake. And I love it!
Next, I'm getting a tattoo on my wrist...
