Mokat Finally Gets Pierced
ell, I waited. and waited. and waited some more. finally, after much thought and research, i decided to go through with it. So i wondered how it would look, feel,etc. just like i'm sure many people do, but i was determined to go through with it. I really wanted to get my nipple pierced. I have several friends (mostly female, a few male) that have different things pierced, and I'd have to say that they are a real turn-on to me. They (my friends) say that both the experience of their pirecings and the pleasure they derive form them are really special. Well, to each his (or her) own I always say; that's the main reason that I decided to wait. I wanted my experience to be personal, something I was doing for myself. A really good friend of mine had her navel pierced about 2 years ago, and encouraged me to get a piercing, but I knew then it was something for which I wasn't quite ready. Now, that time had come; I was ready.
When I arrived at the studio (Taurian Body
Piercing), i was greeted by the staff there. I was really surprised that they remembered me (I had gone in the week before to check the place out). So, after the obligatory chitchat, I proceeded to fill out my paperwork. Then I waited. A lot of thoughts went through my mind as I sat there. A re you sure? I asked myself. I even wondered if the staff made people wait on purpose to give folks time to chicken out. I guess if there was a time to be nervous, this was it. I was a little nervous, but I had waited long enough. I was finally here. Nothing to do but wait.
I went to the studio with a friend of mine, a dancer I know named Baby. She
has some of the most beautiful pirecings I have ever seen (tongue, both nipples, navel and clitoris-all matching jewelry).So I paid, got my aftercare sheet and a bottle of Provon(a widely recommended cleanser for body pirecings), and waited. Baby seemed more excited that I was! We talked to pass the time and admired some of the photo art in the waiting area. She assured me that I would be a changed man after my piercing, and warned me not to get hooked on it (I said I would try).
Twenty-five minutes later, my name was called. My piercer was named Michael Joiner. He was very professional, and really calming. Any residual nervousness I did have was now gone. Michael was very methodical. I stood there while he measured. I was glad to see him take his time. I was measured three times standing, anc once again lying down. During each step of the procedure, I was kept informed of everything that was going on and about to happen as well. I was sure that he wanted to make sure that my piercing would be something I (and he) could be proud of. I was right.
I expected the piercing to really hurt; don't get me wrong it did hurt, but it was not the kind of pain I expected. The grappling clamp used to actually hold the nipple was probably the worst part of it. That hurt more than the actual piercing! The pain from the actual piercing was intense, but over almost as soon as I could experience it. What a rush! Afterward, Michael gave me the aftercare instructions again while he was adjusting my jewelry. I went with a 12 gauge surgical stainless steel CBR (captive ball ring, case you're wondering). I was so pleased to look down at it and to see it in the mirror. I really liked it. That was all that mattered. I was sure that others would like it, too.
All-in-all, I would have to say that my experience was very fulfilling. It's been about a week since I had my nipple done, and I think it's healing very well. I can feel it, boot it's not really painful at all. I guess I could say it's a little sore if anything, but for the most part it doesn't hurt at all now. I've been doing the two-a-day cleanings like I'm supposed to, and so far, so good. I heal fast anyway, so I'm hoping that maybe I'll be healed I a couple of months instead of four or five months. From the looks of things I would say that it should be well healed in about another month. Fellas, if this is something you're thinking about doing, I say go for it. I would, however also say that pirecings aren't for everyone. Be sure of your motivations for doing this. Do it to please yourself, not just to please someone else. And by all means go to a professional. You could be in for some serious problems with a do-it-yourself kit or by trusting in someone not truly experienced. The end result will be money well spent. If you're in Houston, and want to go to a really good piercing studio, go to Taurian Body Piercing on Westheimer by the Galleria. Trust me, I shopped around for a while before I decided on a place. Boy, am I glad I waited. I wonder when I'll get the other nipple pierced? I guess Baby was right...
