My first piercing..
februari 2nd 2003. Two days after I turned 18. I just lived with my boyfriend (who is now my husband), so i felt it was time for some big changes. I decided I wanted to have my eyebrow pierced. My boyfriend had pierced his eyebrow half a year before, so he could tell me what to expect. So I picked a date.. februari 2nd. I didn't tell my parents about what I was about to do. I knew if I did, they would be really angry. So I would tell them when I did it.
We lived in Zoetermeer, and when we went to Delft, were the studio was, I was really nervouse! Before we went to the studio my boyfriend and I decided to go and see the city for a while. We parked the car, and walked down to the citycentre. It was nice to go shopping before my piercing. I bought few clothes, and went to a restaurant for lunch. It was really great, but I was so damn nervous for my piercing, I cant remember it all... But I do remember I was thinking, how lucky those people must be to live here. And now, 5 years later, I live in Delft myself. I like this city so much!
After a few hours we went finally to the studio. The woman who was standing behind the counter was really great, and she told me a lot about piercings, and how they work. After she told me everything, I went outside to smoke a cigarette. I was so damn nervous! My boyfriend was with me the entire time, and because I was so nervous I made him nervouse too!! So we smoked another cigarette, and he tried to calm me down. He told me it didn't hurt a lot, and I was going to feel so great after I've done it. I was getting more relaxt, so I decided I had to go through with it. We went inside, and I told the lady I really wanted it. Then it was time to go to the piercingroom. The woman showed me everything. The needle, the clamp, the jewels i could chose. I chose a small ring. She prepared everything, and showed me everything was clean. The told me first she would make the makings, where the needle was going in and coming out of my skin. When she was done, I looked in the mirror. And it looked pretty. So i went trough with the procedure. I was sitting on this piercingchair, and she said it was best if I closed my eyes. So I did. She told me to breath in, and breath slowly out... Breath in... and OUT!
I almost felt nothing. I felt like a little sting.. that was it! I was so releaved, and proud of myself. I just did it! My first piercing! I saw a little bit of blood, but almost nothing. I was really happy with it, and when I was my piercing in the mirror I was so happy i did it! My boyfriend also liked it a lot. So I was really happy, and I felt realy good about it. I payed, an I got instructions of how to clean it. I looked in the mirror one more time, but it was time to go home. When I got home, I immediately called some friend to tell them what I just did. They were so happy for me, and they came to my place to see it. We had a small party and in the middle of the night they went home. But because of my new piercing, I had decided to not drink alcohol for a week. So this party was really hard. But my friends supported me, by not drinking also! So it was a really great night. The next morning my piercing hurt a little bit, but it looked so pretty! The healing went really great and within a week i didn't feel my piercing anymore.
After that I had to tell my parents about it. Well.. that wasn't as easy as i thought. They were really angry with me about it. We talked about it an entire evenening, and when me and my boyfriend went home, they were some more relaxte about it. But most they were hurt. Hurt because I didn't told them, hurt because I didn't listen to them.. But they accepted it!
Now, 5 years later, I have 6 more piercings. Unfortunately i had to remove my eyebrowpiercing. I started to grow out.
But piercings can be an addiction. I wanted more piercings, and more piercings. But I like it. It's an expression of myself. Every piercing i get now, I tell my parents about it. I don't live with them, but they are still my parents. But every piercing i have, I have for a reason. So for me it's more than just a jewel...
