Say Fuck You to All the Haters. Get An Eyebrow Ring.
Okay, so it was about 2 years ago when I was 14 that I began to ask my mom about getting my eyebrow pierced. I figured I could use reverse cycology on her, because she's usually submitive to that (Thank God.) So I go up and ask her if I can get my tongue pierced, she says no. I say, "Well fine then, can I get my eyebrow pierced then? It's better than getting my tongue done." She thought for a minute then nodded and said sure. My plan had worked. Mwahahaha. Although I was surprised I didn't have to break out my reasons list. The good old list of reasons why you want it that parents always badger you for. You know the whole WHY? question that no one ever seems to get. I wasn't impressing anyone or following anyone's lead, I was homeschooled. Come on.
"I don't know why the hell you want this, it's not something you can use." My step dad would say. But I disagreed. "I'm using it for something already and I don't even have it yet, it's pissing you off isn't it?" My mom was semi- understanding about the whole thing, she has one tattoo and had gotten her nose and navel pierced. She wanted to get her eyebrow pierced but chickened out.
My step dad was taking me, which he didn't like AT ALL. But who cares what he wants. This was my day. I had saved my money after calling in and asking how much it would cost, and I was as ready as I ever would be. I walked in and saw two huge walls of vibrant tattoos on either side of me and had to rub my eyes. Yes, Gabrielle was over powered by the bright colors. They were too much for her.
Anyway, I walked up to the counter and the man behind it asked my age, what I wanted done and gave me a paper for me and my step dad to sign my names on, I had to fill some other stuff out before I handed it back to him and he saw me shaking a little bit and reassured me that it wasn't that bad. He then sat a small rack of jewelry up in front of me, complete with hoops and barbells of all different colors and shapes. It was between an orange beach ball barbell, and a white one. Hell I wanted something vibrant so I obviously chose the orange one.
I took a deep breath and followed him to the back where the all too familiar dentist looking chair- a- ma- thingy sat in the middle of the room. I sat down, knowing the routine by now and waited for him to sterilize the orange beach ball acrylic barbell I had chosen. He turned around and made me move foward, he didn't mark me or anything. I just shrugged it off when he clamped me. He told me to close my left eye just in case of any blood drops and so I did. He told me to take three slow deep breaths. 1...in...two...out...three...prick I opened my eye to see a thin silver needle sticking down and I instantly closed my eye back when I saw him start to work the barbell through. "That's all there is to it, it's not all that bad now is it?" He said and I laughed.
He held the mirror up to me after putting in my jewelry. I tried my best not to dive on him and hug him. I was extatic. We talked about the whole after care thing and he gave me a card just in case I needed to remember anything. I was so excited to show it off, especially to my mom. I paid him the 35 dollars and I was happily on my way.
After care wasn't that hard at all, all it took was some sea salts and warm water, or I just washed it in the shower with regular warm water and dial soap which worked good for me. It didn't bleed at all besides right at the opening of the whole, nothing that would come any farther down my face. I love it, and I've had it for two years now. I currently have a metallic pink barbell in and I get compliments for it all the time. Such a little piece of surgical steel, such an addicting thing.
If anyone has any questions about this piercing experience that they'd like to ask me, then email me and I'd be happy to help the best I can. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Any one who was thinking about getting this piercing, I highly suggest it. I didn't feel a thing. GOOD LUCK and Happy piercing my fuckers. ;)
