Double vertical nipple piercing
I should really start by saying that I absolutely love body modification, and get the urge to have something new every few months at least! I already have snakebites, nose, stretched lobes and cartilage and navel pierced, as well as four tattoos which include a sleeve in progress.
For the last few months I've been toying with the idea of getting venoms, but as I am starting back at university in a few weeks, decided that maybe I should wait to get them at a more appropriate time when I won't have to be articulate for a while!!
Then today I was browsing BME looking at nipple piercings, and I remembered that last year I had really wanted to get mine done, but my ex didn't like the idea so I had forced it out of my mind...well, now I am single, and I can do what I want!
I have never really been confident about my breasts, and I thought that maybe if they were pierced I would feel more comfortable about showing them, especially as I love them pierced on other people. There was also of course the fact that I have heard that it can increase sensitivity!
So, this afternoon I was online and said to a friend, who is also into mods, that I wanted to get them done. She asked me when, and when I replied "Now!" she said she would come and get me and take me into Falmouth to my tattooist.
When we got there however, he was fully booked, and I was so hyped up that I just said I would go to Truro as my friend's tattooist had said he had time.
When we got there, we were greeted with huge smiles from the staff and we chatted for a while whilst Carl, the artist, set up the bench and instruments.
I have to say, I absolutely love my own tattooist, and was nervous about going to someone else for my first piercing in over two years, but I was instantly put at ease with Carl's relaxed manner, he was really funny and we joked about how attractive we both found pierced nipples!
So. I sat down on the bench, and was told to "whip my vest off", meanwhile I had realised that I didn't have enough money one me. He said he would do them for less as he knew my friend which was great, so it was only £35.
As he marked me up I felt no self consciousness at all, as he was so professional, although I did remark on the fact that I was a bit naked! Once I had a look and decided the placing was perfect, I lay down and he cleaned the area and clamped up my left nipple. I had already decided to have them done vertically, just because I think it looks nicer, and I have quite small nipples and I thought it would compliment them a bit more. I have heard a lot of times that the clamps are painful but it wasn't at all. Of course the needle hurt but only for a second or so, and when I looked down I giggled at the needle just sitting in my boob! The barbell hurt a wee bit as it went through, but he was onto the right so fast that I didn't really have enough time to think about it.
Once both were in I sat up, looked in the mirror to check them, and immediately fell in love! they looked so perfect, and I was happy with my breasts for the first time in ages. I wasn't dizzy or anything so I walked to the ATM and got the extra tenner out, and after a promise I would be back to get my tongue done at some point, we left; me clutching my chest to stop being bounced by the car!
The only pain I have had since was a bit of stinging for a couple of hours but now, two and a half hours (and a pint) later I can hardly feel them. I cleaned a tiny bit of blood off when I got home before I showed my mum, who was, as always, ok with it, despite rolling her eyes, and I can't stop looking at them in the mirror!!
I'm not too worried about the healing process; I am used to looking after piercings and I am hoping that as long as I do everything right these will be fine. So worth it anyway!
If you're thinking about getting your nipples pierced, I say go for it. Yes, it hurts, but so do most piercings and I must say this was much easier then my lips. A few seconds of pain, but for so much pleasure!
