Experience of A Lifetime

iend Deserey and I were in Florida thanks to a graduation gift from her parents. I had been wanting to get my eyebrow pierced for as long as I can remember and she wanted to get her belly button done! We decided, what better time to have it done than when we're in Florida on vacation. That Thursday night we arrived in Cocoa Beach. That night, Deserey and I looked up all the body piercing and tattoo places in the area. Melbourne was the closest town that had more than one shop so we thought we would call them Friday morning to check out prices. We decided that rather than calling them we would go look at them to see how clean they were. Friday morning we were on our way to visit the places we had found. Most of the places we visited were fairly clean, but their prices were too high! The last place we looked at, Alternative Connections, was awesome. It was a piercing place inside of a store. The store was an exotic smoking accessories store. They sold body Jewelry and also did body piercing. We approached the counter with butterflies in our stomachs. The guy who waited on us, Tim, was very nice. He made us show I.D. to prove we were 18 and then he told us about the procedure. My friend got scared and decided we would come back tomorrow to get it done after she had worked up enough nerve to do it. Tim sed to just come in anytime tomorrow and he would take care of us so we left. By the time we got back to out hotel room, Des had changed her mind and decided that we were gonna go back and get it done today. We went back and Tim recognized us. We had to fill out a paper and sign it and then he expained to us how to care for our piercings. Des made me promise I would go first so I did. We had to look around the store for about 10 minutes before we could get it done because Tim had to sanitize the jewelry. Once it was ready, Tim called us back. We went in this little room that had an opening so people could watch you being pierced. I was very nervous because I had to go first. I sat up on this chair that reminded me of my dentist's chair. Tim stood me in front of a mirror and asked which eye I was gettin done. I chose the left one. he put two purple dots, one on the top and one on the bottom, and then asked if I liked where they were. I told him yes and then it was on with the show. Tim had one of the other guys who worked there come in and help because he needed to make sure the clamp was on my eyebrow properly. The guy placed the clamp on my eyebrow and pulled it so my eyebrow was stretched away from my face. The clamp probably hurt the worst out of the whole process. Tim then asked me if I was ready and when I sed yes, he jammed the needle thru my eyebrow. The next thing he did was put the earing in the hole which hurt a little because the hole was sore. Once it was in it was smooth sailing. I was so disappointed when it was over tho because I had been so afraid it was going to hurt and then it didn't. Des was next. Tim did the exact same thing with her. The dots and the clamps and everything. He had her lay down on the chair and then asked if she was ready. She said yes and then he jammed a needle thru her belly button into a cork on the other side. She flinched a little but said it didn't hurt as much as she thought it was going to. Like me, she said the worst part was the clamp and putting the ring in. After everything was done...they looked great. We payed and it only ended up being $33 for my piercing and the ring to go in it and $55 for her piercing and the ring. I was very satisfied and I haven't had any problems since I had it done. It was only sore for maybe 30 minutes afterwards and that was it. I cleaned it like I was told and every now and then I have a little puss which I was told is normal. I would reccommend this place to anyone who is in the Cocoa Beach area looking to be pierced. Tim is great. If you have any questions, contact me at my e-mail addy or ICQ me at 19568060.
