I finally earned my devil horns!
I never thought about getting an eyebrow piercing done, but that day I was at the studio, in walked this girl with the most beautiful face. I could not put my finger on it at first, but then I saw it. She had an eyebrow piercing. I never thought that it could bring out so much in a person.
I told her what I thought and she was very flattered. I asked her all about her experience and she was more than happy to tell me. It really wasn't new to me, I have my nipples, tongue and hood pierced, but I wanted to know what made her want to have this steal ring on her face. She didn't have an answer except that all her friends had done it.
WOW! I really thought long and hard about what she said. Was I doing this just because I saw someone else with it? I am not usually one to go after something that I saw on someone else, but I could not help myself. Maybe I needed to talk to someone else before I went through with this. I went right then to the back and told Nate that I wanted one.
He sat me down and asked why all of a sudden I wanted this done when I normally just go for the tattoos. I told him about the girl out front and that at the moment I saw her I knew that this was something that would make me feel better about myself and what I see when I look at myself. He said that was the best reason he had heard in a long time as to why to get a body modification done.
He had a couple of other people in front of me so I had to wait for a while. It did not take too long though. I sat around talking with the other artist and actually planned my next tattoo design while I waited. I thought that I was going to lose my mind, I had never felt this way about anything in a long time and it felt really good to be so excited!
After everything was set up, he put me up on the bench and had me find the right place where I wanted the piercing. I knew it would not hurt that much, if I could take having my nipples pierced then I knew I could take this. It did sting a little and he could not get the ring to go through the bottom hole, right then I knew something was wrong and that this was not going to turn out good.
5 minutes later it was done! And I loved it! I ended up with a ring at first but did not like the way it looked so he put in a curved barbell that was a mistake! I had to put it in myself; he could not get it to go all the way through without causing me pain. It started bleeding and would not stop. I finally had to go lay down in the back room with a compression the piercing and I fell asleep. When I woke it had stopped bleeding and looked great!
I have to say that this was an experience that I will never forget. I was so excited in the beginning and by the end I just wanted to hurt him! I had never been through something so painful in all the body moods that I have. Needless to say a few weeks after I had my piercing the shop was closed down.
Although this was a bad experience, it won't stop me from future modification or trusting another artist. I love the way I have become with my body modifications and I would not want to lose that feeling for anything in the world. I hope that others can learn from this experience and not go through what I did. I knew this person and this shop for a long time, funny how it doesn't matter sometimes what you know.
You won't see me without it in. No matter where I am or what I am doing. Even if people look at me all crazy or tell me that I ruined my beautiful face with that "metal thing". HA! I made myself more beautiful to me and that is all that matters. I try to tell people I didn't do it for them, especially my family, they all think that I am crazy anyway the way I live my life...but that is just it, it's my life. (My kids think it is the most awesome thing that is a plus for me too, that they aren't ashamed of me.)
Now I have the devil horns I so richly deserve! I LOVE IT!!!!!!
