Nose Piercings Are So Hot

I don’t know if you caught my post on FB where I went to get my nose pierced last weekend and chickened out, but that really happened. I drove up to the parlor, and before I could turn my car off, I was already backing up to leave. This morning, I decided to try it again. The difference was, my confidence level was kicking it today. I thought surely nothing was going to stand in my way of getting this checked off of my list of things I want to do {before I die}. My list is slowly but surely dwindling and growing because even though I can mark some things off, there’s always something else I add to it.

It must have been the confidence I was feeling this morning that led to my turning my car off and strolling into the {Tatoos by Tim} parlor like I owned the place. And guess, what?! I did it. I actually got my nose pierced. I decided to go with a gem which was only $5 more because I do like bling. There are so many ways to get a nose piercing that I did even realize but I went with a high nostril piercing on my right side, opposite from the side I part my hair on. I had to decide between an L-shaped or nostril screw type and I went with the latter. I thought it would be harder for it to come out. I don’t have any regrets, I love it better than ice cream and I really love ice cream. When it heals, I’m going to get a cute loop like this one…

I did really well, I was afraid when the needle when in that I’d faint. And in all honesty, the pain was equivalent to a pinch, the guy knows his stuff. I’m prone to fainting even though I’ve given thousands of shots during my career, removed stitches, and have cleaned injuries that would make anyone faint. When he was done, I opened my eyes which I closed as soon as I sat down because even though I was radiating confidence, I wasn’t taking any chances. As I was admiring it in the mirror, he proceeded to tell me the needle gauge he used and all it took was the word needle to turn my luck around.

I felt myself going clammy, I could feel my blood draining from my body. I immediately put my head down and I guess he was used to it because he turned a fan on me, had me lay down, and gave me a Fresca. To make matters worse, he is a patient of the doctor I worked for until my {failed} back surgery, lol. But all is well, the feeling passed. My color returned. I sat up. I drove to Walmart to do some shopping. I came home and I’ve looked in the mirror a dozen times. I’m so glad I did something that I’ve always wanted to do before I’m too old to enjoy it.

What is one thing on your list of things you’d like to do that you haven’t yet?

    Nose piercings are really pretty. I have a friend that has one with a micro stud in and it really adds a little pizzaz to her face. She told me it hurt a lot to get though and she went through it twice. The first time she ended up taking it out because of work. Good job being brave.

    I have a tongue piercing and my belly button was pierce. I would love to get my belly done again because it started to close and I can’t get a loop in it now. Thanks for sharing your nose piercing

    In India, ear piercing is an age old tradition and still practiced. Nose piercing is traditional for women, especially married women.

    I think the list of things that I would like to do would be so long. It’s like a never ending list of things that I think would be cool. And reading other bloggers there are new experiences I would like to try every day. Although you can count me out on the nose ring one.

    Enjoy your new piercing! I had my belly done once – but my jeans kept rubbing on it so I took it out. Then I had it done AGAIN years later and still did not like how it felt. I then had my eyebrow pierced and kept that for about 11 years or so. I LOVED it. I had it up until a few years ago. I miss it sometimes but I think I am done with them. Who knows though. My daughter had a monroe piercing and loved that too. She also took it out. She too misses it at times. They become part of you!

    I have seen so many unique nose piercings lately. I do not know that I would ever be brave enough to do it myself, but yours looks great!

    I only got my ears pierced. I could only imagine how nervous you are when getting your nose pierced.

    I only have my ears pierced, but I do love the look of a nose ring. I prefer a small stud. Other than that I feel people should get what they like best.

    I used to have a lot of piercings when I was younger, but I think I outgrew them. My most obnoxious was a lip piecing that is still visible today.

    Nose piercings ARE cool! I, for one, don’t have my nose pierced; but, I do think it’s cool! I’ve never been able to “pull the trigger” on getting any piercings…..low tolerance of pain!

      It took bravery I wasn’t sure I had for me to do it, lol, but I’m glad I did. I love it.
