My newest piercing!
To be honest, this story started months ago when I first thought about having my nipple pierced. Of course I'm not gonna bore you with what happened in between. Back then I was too scared of the pain to go through with it. A couple of weeks ago my desire for a nipple piercing came back again. Just like before, I still didn't have enough courage to actually go and get it done. It did start thinking about it allot and thought to just get it over with. The only thing I was missing, was someone that would go with me. So I was very glad when a friend of mine started talking about getting her ear done. This was the opportunity I was looking for. Enough said, here's my story.
Yesterday, my friend and I were chatting about piercings. Again. I wanted this particular piercing for a long time, but never found enough courage. So my friend said that she wanted to have her ear done. She asked me to come with her. I thought, well, if I go to a piercing studio, I might as well get my nipple done. The very moment after I thought that, I became nervous. Normally, I'm like an ice queen when it comes to piercing. I can decide one day to get another piercing in my ear and I would get it done the same day! Without any regrets. But this time, I really was nervous. It could have been the fact that a nipple is sensitive and I would have to get undressed for a man. A few months back, that thought would have been enough to not do it. This time I didn't really care. He is a professional and as long as he put the piercing in the right spot I didn't mind.
This morning, I was kind of nervous. I checked the site of the studio and called the studio to make an appointment. Normally, you don't have to make an appointment, but with private piercings, it can assure your privacy. After waiting for a couple of hours, I packed my stuff and walked to the bus station. There I met my friend. This was the very first time I was more nervous about having a piercing done than she is. She actually teased me about me being nervous. I mean, she's the one that's scared of needles!
Once in the bus we chatted about everything to get our minds of the piercings. After 45 minutes, we were finally in Utrecht. The studio was pretty close and we already decided I was to go first. After filling in some forms and a friendly chat with the piercer, I took place in the chair and removed my top and bra. The piercer cleaned the area and marked the place where the piercing would be. After checking it out, I said it was ok and he grabbed his needles and tong. He told me to breath in and out and in again.
Then he told me to breath out again en pierced my nipple. It didn't hurt as much as I thought it would be. After he cleaned the new piercing and area again, he asked me if I liked it. I said yes, he waited a couple of seconds to see if there would be blood. it didn't bleed at all. The he put a bandaged over it and I had my first nipple piercing! Then, my friend was ready to be pierced. I'm not telling her story, she can do that. The piercer gave us both some information on how to take care of our piercings and told us to come back after a week of three, four. I already know to take care of piercings and I have searched the web for tips and do's and don'ts.
After we left the studio, I was kind of hungry and wanted to eat something. When I was finished eating, I noticed my nipple still burned a little. With my other piercings, I didn't feel a thing after half an hour. I'm not very concerned or anything, I just thought it was weird. It could be the place. And the fact that I did wore a tight bra instead of loose clothing.
Anyway, I'm very happy with it and glad I finally got the balls to just go and do it. I knew for sure that if I didn't got my nipple done today, I would never found the courage. I really did thought it would hurt a lot more than normally. After all, it is a very sensitive place. And this is the only time I'm glad I don't have a boyfriend. At least I don't have to worry about him wanting to see it all the time and stuff. Now I have to decide where my next piercing will go.
