my latest act of rebellion...kinda
ok, i just wanted everyone to know about my latest piercing, which
by the way i am EXTREMLY proud of. ok, a bit about moi..i'm a 15 year
old female, from Great Falls VA, but i am influenced by the weirdos down
in sterling, who i love to death. I go to langley HS, which MTV has
recently snobbiest in the country...ahh the joys of living in fairfax
County. ok, so anywho, i already had 10 peircings, in my ears, and my
parents threatened to send me to catholic school if i put another one in
my ears. (i've done them all myself.) my parents obviously never
thought of any other body part possibly being pierced, other than ears,
so, anywho, about my newest non ear piercing...tounge. i never
really thought about tounge piercing until about a week ago, maybe a week and 2.7 days...but i have an oral fixation and julia (who has her tounge pierced) suggested a tounge ring.(currently i believe we are the only 2 at langley with our tounge pierced) this happened on friday, last week, i guess about the, umm, oct. 2nd. getting my tounge of all thing seemed a cool idea for me, for a few reasons:
a safer way to rebel, without stealing a car- again it can easily be concealed from my parents, teachers, or other such beings... it'll give me something to play with it looks really, really cool!!!!!
so i spent the weekend cruising around the web, looking at piercing places, and i stumbled across BME. and reading both the good and the bad made me want to get one one...so on to the piercing!
my 'twin', laura told everyone not to take me...or else. yet the prospect of a member of our freak group geting their tounge pierced was too tempting...sorry Lark (Laura), but almost everyone you forrbade to take me wanted to! Erika and Brendon finally came out on top, of who was going to take me... and julia came for support (as i said, she has her tounge pierced) we were originally looking for a place called Star rocket (julia got pierced at a stand of theirs at HFStival) but we couldn't find it. so we stopped at a MCD's for my last meal. we found another piercing place just up the street, but their piercer had tuesdays off...bummer. he said there was a place down the road, but not to go there "i've heard horror stories about that place". so the four of us left and went down to smoke... we decided to investigate the other place, called Skyline. this place was a LOT more reisuring.. for one, the owner actually had piercings and tattoo's. and when we asked him about the other place..."well, personally i wouldn't go there, i've heard horror stories about that place". i put that whole thing down to the fact that the two places were closer than was decent. but anyway after telling them what i wanted done, filling out forms and listening to some blah blah blah, i was swished with listerine, and plopped down i a big dentist like chair, the piercer pulled out a giant looking needle, rubbed it in jelly and then , while i was holding julia's hand, pushed this thing through my tounge. i'm noty going to say it didn't hurt, cause it did, but it was so brief it really didn't matter. ushered out of the chair, i was listerined again, then we left, with a bumper sticker and a buisness card. We went back, i went haome and religously avoided my mom.
this thing hurt like a bitch this morning, but was ok after about 6:47 (when i got some asprin from ian right befor we got to school. Lark went crazy when she saw (literally, she started screaming about homecoming or something.) unfortunatly, everyone but her knew i was going to do it, supported me, and loved it. anywho, i listerened a lot, ate a carrot for lunch, and was forced to eat ribs, potatoes and string beans for dinner, cause i don't want mommy and daddy finding out. they still don't know, by the way. listerened and went to bed.
it was swelled up, but not that badly. of course my tounge is also a milky white colour... but about the same as yesterday. Larks cooled off.
Went to sterling, got a lot of ooh's and ahh's, ran into my ex bf (of two times) ran into nick...sigh, i'm in love with him. Went home wondered if my tounge would ever stop swelling, went to bed. listerine is burning off the top few layeres of my tounge as we speak.
Went to work (sub way, couldn't speak, people thought i was deaf and started mouthing things to me which just made everything harder. i ate a deli sub (took 30 min). Went home, then went to madison's homecoming. couldn't speak, or kiss, but it was still cool.
today... my tounge has stopped feeling like i've given some guy a BJ with a cut in my mouth. it's still white, but the swelling's gone down and lark's taking me to get a smaller barbell (tho i can thpeak nomaly) she wants to get a blue frog tattoo while we're out there... if anythign happens, like my touge falls out or something i'll tell you, so anywho, you have to get your tounge pierced...it is the coolest thing!!!!
