Most painful Nipple Piercing
o, you want to get your nipple pierced or just read about it? I suggest you have a seat for a moment and read this story on how NOT to get your nipple pierced. It wuz April 7th of 1997 and my 2 roommates and I had just gotten home from a Mighty Mighty Bosstones concert in Orlando. I had bought some piercing studs and wanted my 3rd holes done in my ears. My roommated had bought a piercing gun the month before so she pierced my ears and then she decided it'd be kinda cool to give herself another nipple ring. She let me watch and then she talked me into getting it done. I was 17 at the time and had had no more than the 7 holes in my ears done (3 on each side and a helix) and I thought all of them had hurt too much for my own good. So, I stripped off my shirt and undid my bra after sending our male roommate into his bedroom. We got out ice to make my nipple hard and to numb it some. Since I have really small nipples anyway, the ice didn't do too much good. She loaded up the gun with another one of my piercing studs from somewhere after cleaning it thoroughly. We didn't mark any holes because we figured it'd go where it'd go. So, I braced myself (I still had a ton of adrenaline from both the concert and from getting my ears pierced) and she lined up the gun. She pulled the trigger and a searing pain went through my whole body. I screamed at the top of my lungs. That was the most pain I had felt in a long long time. I was on the verge of crying it hurt so bad. So, we cleaned it and tried to loosen the stud a bit which wuz squeezing the living daylights out of my nipple and aerola.
I went to bed that night in moderate pain and got up in the morning to go to work. Since at that time I worked at Ihop we had to wear thsese stupid aprons that cut right across my nipple. Pain Pain all day. That night my roommate said that she'd clean her ring that had been in her nipple for liek 5 years and give it to me and we'd put it in mine. So, she took out my stud and I had imprints on my boob. It was red and has some crusties on it. We cleaned those then decided to go at it with the ring. Oh man was that a mistake. The ring wuz bent and my whole wasn't straight so it hurt like mad. We tried for about an hour to get it through. It would go about half way then wouldn't go anymore. I wuz covering my face with a pillow screaming and our other roommate came out several times to say it sounded like I was being chopped into little pieces. In that hour I bled and oozed stuff and came very very close to crying. She finally got it through all the way and I thought I was going to cry because I was so glad that I wouldn't have to go thru that pain anymore. So, we cleaned it again and we sat and watched a movie. I was in pain. It throbbed like mad. We went to bed and I tried to sleep the best I could.
I got up the next morning to take a shower and noticed that I had lots of crusties. I pulled them out and some of them wnet further than just on the surface. Some of them had root like things that went into the piercing hole. Of course I pulled out some dried up blood from when I had bled. I went to work and tried not to cry everytime that stupid apron hit my ring. I cleaned it more than once a day and pullecd crusties a lot with tweezers. It didn't hurt anymore after about a day. I showed it to a small number of people who thought it was cool. My sorta boyfriend liked it a lot too. And I liked it even more at those times. Everytime I wore a shirt without a bra or my bathing suit, it wuz very very easy to see my ring (that kinda sucked at my brother's pool party graduation party). It didn't really give me that much trouble or hurt that much besides the time that that sorta boyfriend person tried to rip it out. OW! So, I moved up to North Carolina and it was ok and everything. Then one day it just started hurting for no reason. And it hurt all day and all night. And it started oozing black stuff which I was pulling out with tweezers. Finally one day it hurt so bad that I took it out. I went to put it back in about 2 hours later and the holes were closed up. I have small scars from it but nothing big. I don't reccommend doing this yourself. Or with a gun. Everyone asks me if it hurt and I tell them it wuz the most immense pain of my life but that it was done with a gun. Silly me...(since then I've gotten 2 more in my left cartilage and my tongue done) any questions and you can e-mail me at
