The Only Mod I Was Scared To Do...
I have always been a huge fan of body mods. I've had my tongue pierced twice, and I am getting it split soon. Also I have had my nape done twice, my industrial and my septum. No tattoo's yet. I have done many play piercing's and I am no stranger to pain.
Anyways, I have wanted my nipples pierced for almost a year now, but always made excuses for why I shouldn't do it. Yesterday I decided that I wanted to get my nipples pierced before I do my Suicide Girls shoot next week. So I sucked it up and went down to the piercing shop.
I was staying at my boyfriends in Topeka at the time, I am a Kansas City girl, and while I would have loved to go to my own piercer, I knew that after the hour and half drive to my piercer I would probably chicken out. I knew this piercer was good, as he had done my boyfriends nipples a month or 2 ago.
Even though I was nervous, things went pretty well.
I was really nervous and couldn't help laughing as Dominic cleaned my nipples, and marked me.
Dominic did the piercing free hand with no clamps at all, and they were perfectly even and straight. My boyfriend and I are a little OCD so if it wouldn't have been straight I would have freaked.
I didn't even feel it when he put the jewelry in. He only uses barbells on female nipples, which was fine with me because I don't like hoops.
And now to talk about the pain.
I have never flinched or screamed or bled during a piercing, ever. Not either nape, septum or tongue. My industrial bled a week after the piercing but not at all during the piercing or right after. My nipples were no different, as far as bleeding goes. There was no blood at all, and there still hasn't been any at all.
I had read that the first nipple doesn't hurt much because of the adrenaline and excitement, and so I didn't have too much anxiety about pain for the first nipple. Big mistake. Since I wasn't expecting pain I think it hurt a lot more. I actually ended up screaming Mother FUCKer quite loud, and disturbed the next girl in line to pierced, who was waiting just outside the curtained off room.
The second nipple I was expecting to hurt pretty bad, but it was not nearly as bad as the first. I only screamed Bloody Hell and not nearly as loud.
I was already familiar with all the cleaning and aftercare of the piercing, Sea Salt Soaks, or Saline, no touching the piercing or playing with the piercing or jewelry.
My nipples started to swell with in an hour after the piercing and it became a little uncomfortable to wear my bra, but I just loosened the straps a little so that it didn't pull or push on them too much. I have not taken any ibuprofen or pain killers of any sort, there is hardly any pain or discomfort at all, and when there is, it is only because I forget they are there and end up touching them or bumping them.
I was however still able to wear my bra and it did not bother me at all, how ever I opted not to because I was wearing a button up shirt and had a plan to flash my squimish neighbor/friend.
Sleeping was not bad at all. At first it was hard to fall asleep, after having my nape pierced I learned to sleep on my stomach, and now I can't do that for obvious reasons.
At first even sleeping on my side was hard because of the way my boobs lay when I am on my side, so I layed flat on my back for a while, but when I couldn't fall asleep, I decided I was too tired to care and I ended up falling asleep on my side, with my arm behind my back to avoid it hitting my piercing, and while that was slightly uncomfortable, it was better then the pain of bumping my nipples.
Today I haven't even noticed them at all really, and the only discomfort was when I put on my seat belt. I am still not wearing my really cute bras just in case they do bleed a little bit. There hasn't been any kind of discharge at all yet, but I am sure that will change in the near future.
It has been a really great experience and I am really happy with the outcome. I am glad I finally got up the nerve to get this piercing done, even though it means I can't keep my air conditioner on as cold as I would like. I spent about an hour last night in the bathroom with my shirt off staring at my gorgeous new nipple accents.
