Nipple Repiercing Experince
Back in June, I had both of my nipples pierced at 14 gauge, 1/2 inch circular barbells. Less than a week later, I went to jail, had to take them out, and couldn't get the left one back in. I've been lopsided since then. Yesterday -- maybe since it was because it was my birfday, maybe because I was feeling lonley, who knows -- I went to Perforations. Part of me wanted to get repierced, part of me just wanted to stretch the left one to 12 gauge. After a lot of waivering and a few cigarettes, I decided to do both.
Obviously, I wanted to match, so I went to 5/8, 12 inch in the
right nipple -- no sweat. Then the time came to repierce the left nipple, which had me really scared.
A long time ago, I pierced my left nipple myself. I used a safety
pin, which led to infection and bad scarring. Then, it was pierced in
June, but taken out, which left even more scar tissue. Last time it was
pierced it hurt. Now, factor in more scar tissue and a bigger needle, and
understand why I was literally shaking. Charon, tattoo lady, was nearby
willing to let me hold her hand, but for some reason, that doesn't help
me. The piercing HURT, but unlike last time, afterwords it wasn't burning
or stinging. I was up off the table and walking to the convenience store
within minutes. I didn't shower today, so I haven't cleaned it yet, which
is bad, but I have been applying Bactine.
The point of this experience was the scar tissue factor, and I
doubt that it really increased the pain factor. I think the only issue was placement. Hopefully, it won't be an issue again... :)
