Piercing my mouth shut!!!!!!!!
I've always been called a freak,ever since I was in 4th grade. I've gotten used to people staring at me when they walk by and wispering in each others ear.I like to express myself a little differently than most of society.So.....when my best friend Terri told me that she was going to go get her bellybutton done and asked me if I'd like to come along,I thought, "Why not?!" I decided I was going to get my lip pierced on the right side and we were on our way. We had to drive nearly 2 hours to get to Krazzy's House of Tattoos because of a traffic jam.By the time we got there I was so nervous!I went inside,to the front desk and told the guy that I wanted to get my lip pierced.He handed me the papers and when I finished filling them out Rob(the sexy body piercer)led me to the back.I sat down in the chair and he cleaned my lip off with betadine.Then he clamped my lip and asked if I was ready(which of course I was).Then "pop!" in went the needle and the loop not far behind.He got up and I was like, "That's it?!?!?!?!?"He said yes,I paid him,and I was sent on my way.Then I went to McDonalds and got something to eat.Everyone kept staring at me like I was crazy and asking me if it hurt. I haven't had any problems with it since I got it done and I love to play with it(as does my boyfriend)! About a month later I went back to get my madonna done.I wasn't at all nervous this time and he went through the same procedure.I signed the papers,went back to the chair,and came out with another piece of metal in my face.I looked in the mirror admiring it while my friend Terri got her lebret pierced.My madonna however bled more than my lip when I had it done,but didn't hurt at all.People have came up to me many times to ask me if it hurt and to tell me how original it was.I love when people do that! My boyfriend liked this one okay but kept saying that I was going to end up getting my mouth pierced shut.My family thought it was very cute and my friends all want to get it done. Anyway,I didn't stop there.Two months later I went back to get my cheeks pierced.Same thing.However,my cheeks bled a lot.They didn't hurt when I got them done but the next day.....Ouch!I looked a little like a chipmunk.My cheeks got swollen every morning when I woke up for about 4 days.After that though,it was smooth sailing! I love having piercings!!!The only bad thing now is that I can't decide what to get done next.I'm thinking about getting my lip pierced four more times.I'm not sure yet but that's probably what I'll be getting done in a few days. My family keeps telling me that I'll regret getting things pierced one day,but I like it and hope to god that I don't ever regret it.If I do it just means that I'm getting way too old! The worst thing about having piercings is that it's extremely hard to get a job.I've tried and tried to get a job but everywhere I went told me I'd have to take my piercings out.There's no way that I'm ever going to do that.....so I went to Selectors(music store) and got hired there.I love working there because I see plenty of people with a variety of tattoos and piercings.They are all so unique and beautiful. A little tip of advice for those of you planning to get pierced.... 1.Check out the place you're going to to get it done(make sure they're clean and trustworthy). 2.Make sure to listen to the body piercer when they tell you to do something(I'm positive that they know what they are talking about). 3.Keep your piercing clean(or else I'm going to come after you and eat your pets)! 4.If you're not sure of something,call the shop you got it done at(they'll be more than happy to answer your questions). 5.And last but not least,Make sure you want it before you get it done.Sure,you can take it out later but why waste your money if it wasn't what you wanted in the first place? Anyway,keep happy,and keep on piercing!!!! -PhantomPhreek- firstname.lastname@example.org(just in case you wanted to ask any questions or just talk to a fellow freak bitch!)
