I was born a Christmas baby my birthday is Christmas eve and my mom promised me that when I turned 18 I could get my belly pierced. After dinner with family and friends my dad took me to the tattoo shop. I was excited up until I walked into the shop and then it happened… my nerves started to get the best of me I couldnt stop thinking about how much it may hurt.. how long its going to take to heal and everything in between. I’m 18 so I filled out the piercing paperwork and sat down next to my dad. Before I could get comfortable the piercer called me back. My dad came back with me, the piercer allowed me to pick my ring as well. After I picked the jewelry I sat on a big table while he opened the needle and situated things for the piercing. Before I knew it I was being pierced and I let out a lil shout as I squeezed the life out of my dads hand LOL. But it went well. I am slowly becoming obsessed with my new piercing!

I have been fascinated with piercings since I got my ears pierced for the first time when was 11. My mom is very conservative and didn’t really believe in body piercings but with much convincing from me and others I finally got pierced. I had fallen in love with the look of dimples and when I turned 18 I just had to get my cheeks pierced. I went to get pierced with my bestfriend, she ended up getting her tongue pierced and I got my cheeks. The piercing was extremely painful all I could remember was the needle ripping through my cheeks. It was really painful but well worth it. Now that I have had them for so long when I take them out they have created an actual dimple, its really cool absolutely love them!

My piercing craze started when I was 19, I was on winter break from school. I came home to visit from college and my older brothers were so happy to see that I finally got inked. I got my first tattoo on my back. I’m the only girl the baby to be exact so I thought my parents would freak out at my tattoo but surprisingly they didn’t… It was the night before I was scheduled to go back to school and my brothers and I went out. My oldest brother really wanted to get a tattoo with his girlfriend so we ended up at the tattoo. She got a tattoo on her foot and he finished a back piece he had been working on for a while. If you can’t tell by now my family is pretty modified. While sitting in the midst of it all I couldn’t help but want something! I figured hey why not a labret? I love the look of the monroe piercing I could imagine it now a cute little diamond stud in my labret. I hopped up told the guy behind the counter that I wanted a lip piercing. He called the piercer up and they had me fill out some paperwork and I walked to the piercing room. The piercer was awesome he pierced with quickly and virtually painlessly. Since then I have also pierced my nose… and there are more piercings to come!

Ever since I turned 13 I have been fascinated with body jewelry. 13 was the age I could get my cartilage pierced and since then I couldnt wait til I turned 16 t9 get real body piercings. On my 16th birthday I got my lefteyebrow pierced. On my 17th birthday I got my right nostril done. On my 18th birthday I got both my nipples done. Then a few months before I turned 19 I got my bridge/erl and then my vertical labret.

On July 3, 2013 was the day I got my belly button pierced. As I walked into the store with my mother, the nerves started to get to me. After we filled out all the correct paper work and picked out the ring, it was time to go back. I raised my shirt up, and he did all the measurements for it. It was time to lay down and get it pierced, thats when the nerves really hit you the most, and you’re just thinking “oh no, oh no, what if he messes up, what it hurts” and all the other usual doubts. But my thoughts distracted me for when I did get it pierced, for I only felt a slight pinch. After I got it pierced I was pretty much worry free, but as for my mother..well all I can say for her is she was excited (you would have thought she was the one who got it pierced), as in jumping and down, clapping excited. When it was finally time to leave and the guy was talking about the care he started to mention how other times when he pierced the skin was sometimes tougher. I remember him saying exactly this ” that was smooth as butter, last week I pierced a girl who was tougher than leather”. After this we left. That is my piercing story.

I always thought body piercing was very cool, but didn’t give it much thought about getting it myself, being Ms. Conservative. However, that changed when I turned 50. I went to a conference during the summer and made a few new friends. One of those new friends happened to show me his pierced nipple. That little gold hoop on one nipple sure was sexy! Needless to say, the more I saw it, the more I wanted to have my own little gold ring(s). So I asked a friend for a recommendation on where to go for piercing and my nipples were pierced the next day. I am so glad I did it! It’s very sexy and fun to buy different jewelry.

well I went to go get my tongue pierced because I have wanted it done for awhile now but never had the money. I got the money so I wanted to get it done. Well I had bought a bunch of tongue rings before I went to get my tongue pierced so that way I could have them already. I went to go get my tongue done and the guy that was piercing it had told me that my tongue was too small to pierce and it would look weird. So I decided to get my lip done instead. I think I made a good decision to get my lip pierced lol. I think my tongue could have been pierced because I have seen others with little tongues and they had theirs done. Anyway that’s my story. 🙂

So I decided to let my ex-boyfriend who thought he knew how to do piercings. Pierce my lip mistake number one not only did it hurt like heck but he got to close to the top of my lip and it was nasty swollen and black and blue. Then listening to him I left it in and it got infected got the nasty green and yellow pus in it and I decided to take it out myself. Then I went to a “professional” and got it re-pierced. The guy that did it said that my ex shoved a piece of nerve thru my lip which is why it hurt so bad at the beginning. The guy went ahead and went thru with piercing my lip again. It DID NOT hurt a all I was surprised. The whole shop was laughing because they said you could tell that I just knew that it was going to hurt like hell. Now its been almost a year I still have my new lip piercing and I absolutely love it My piercing experience didn’t scar me away im ready to go and get a lot lot more.

I recently bought a pair of the 2g Amber Dragon head S-curve earrings. I was a little worried because all my other earrings are 6g or 4g, so I thought these might be too big. But I got them at such a good price, I couldn’t pass them up. They shipped really quickly, like within 5 days. They were actually smaller than I thought they were going to be, which ended up working my my favor because I had no trouble fitting them in. They are very light weight and I love them. Its a little hard to tell that they are dragons unless you are up close, but I still think they are cool and I love them! I am so glad I got them on sale!
