I've always been very self conscious of my breasts, so its no wonder why I was so hesitant to get my nipples pierced. I wanted to get them done for a while, but the horror stories I had heard from friends and read from websites made me shrug off the idea.
After getting my nape done, I decided to ask questions about the procedure. I explained to my piercer that one of my close friends had hers done, and ended up losing all sensation. She had had hers done with a clamp, and Evan, my piercer, told me that he didn't use them for any of the piercings he did. One of my other concerns was not only loss of sensation, but also the increase of sensitivity. I have pretty sensitive nipples, and I didn't want to end up having too much sensitivity to where I couldn't enjoy myself. Evan told me that probably wouldn't happen, it can increase sensitivity, but not to an uncomfortable point. After my consultation with Evan, I felt more comfortable with getting them done, and I knew I had to have it.
When I showed up for my appointment, I was very nervous. Like I had said earlier, my nipples are pretty sensitive, and thinking about shoving a needle through them both scared and excited me. I was having second thoughts about getting them both done at the same time...I thought about just getting one done, and coming in another day for the other. Evan quickly talked me out of it, and I finally sucked it up and went into the piercing room.
I was so nervous, I started to sweat. This of course made my self consciousness even worse. I closed my eyes and took a deep breath...i could already feel the adrenaline running through my veins. He walked me through the procedure quickly one more time, and explained that he would be telling me what he was doing the whole time, with no surprises.
I lowered my shirt and kept thinking, well this is it! Its going to happen, and its going to happen RIGHT now. Evan put his gloves and mask on, and cleaned the surface area. It was really cold and it tickled, so it startled me a little. He asked if I was alright, and I told him I was fine, it just tickled. We laughed. He marked the spot where the needle would be entering and leaving, and told me to check it out. They looked good and symmetrical, so I continued to lie down on the bed. Evan told me he was going to line up the needle to the dot, and explained that when he pushes it through, its going to pinch, and feel weird when the jewelry goes through.
"Take a deep breath in"
"Now let it out."
I did so, and he slid the needle through, nice and easy.
I felt my jaw clench, and my tongue pressed hard against the roof of my mouth. I closed my eyes really tight, and after he did everything, I took a deep breath in. It was painful, I won't lie. It felt like someone took a nice hard pinch at my nipple, and I told him he didn't have to do the other one if he didn't want to. He laughed at me and told me to brace myself for the second one. My heart fell a little bit, because I didn't want to go through it again.
"Take a deep breath in..
.let it out"
Needle slides through, fast and easy, then in goes the jewelry.
My body went through the same reaction this time, only I knew how it was going to feel, so I was anticipating it. The second one hurt more than the first! This time, it felt like someone gave me a good titty twister. When he was done, I was too scared to move for the life of me. I didn't want it to hurt when gravity wanted to do its thing. I got up, looked at the mirror, and I liked them a lot. I think my breasts looked better pierced, rather than not. After putting on my bra, I noticed it felt a lot more comfortable, and it didn't really hurt anymore. They never really did hurt during the healing process, either, unless they got hard.
I'm really happy with the experience and piercings. The sensation is different, but in a good way. They're still sensitive, but comfortably sensitive. They're also fun to play with, and I can make them hard whenever I want by moving the bar side to side. I'm glad I didn't chicken out, and that Evan was so persistent, because now that they've healed, I think it was all worth the pain. I think everyone should do it, its totally worth it!
