Double ouchie on my lip! (lower right lip)
his will be my fourth submission to BME, and not my last. I have submitted quite a few experiences, so my friends who have the net can read my experiences and stop asking me all those questions. =)
I had my lip done in August of 1998. I had been considering it for a
little while....It was one of those piercings that sort of just popped into my head one day... And I liked the look of it... I had made the appointment, and as usual, with Primal Art in Winnipeg, I had to wait a week just to get in to have it done. Having it done was worse than I thought it would be... The pain level was quite high for me... But it was bearable. Unfortunately, I had to take it out because I had to have my swollen tonsils removed, and it closed up. A few months later, in December, December 21st to be exact, I went back to Primal. They had promised me that if my lip closed up during the operation, I could get it redone for free. I took them up on that offer. I went in, and I told them I was there and ready to get it done... Brian, the "front desk guy", told me previously that they would provide a ring for the lip, considering that I took my old lip ring, put it in my eyebrow, and put my old eyebrow ring in my nose, because my nose ring was very tight, and the bead was always rubbing on my nostril. When I went there to get the lip done, he asked me if I had the ring. "What ring?" I asked. He forgot that he had told me that he would provide a ring, and I had to take out my nose ring so they could pierce my lip with it. I am now wearing my old nostril ring, and it's giving me dermatitis because of the friction on the bead and the nostril. I was severely pissed off with them, considering they had already cancelled my appointment twice, because, Eric, my piercer, was sick. I had to wait 45 mintues for them to autoclave the ring. When I went in, I asked Eric what the pain level was going to be like. He said it was going to be slightly more painful, due to the fact that there was scar tissue that the needle had to go through. I was alright with that, sorta, considering the lip hurt enough the first time. Well, he pierced it. And it hurt so fucking much that I had tears in my eyes. And I don't cry easily. He asked me if I was alright. I was like, "Yeah," in an extremely wavery voice. He said that he didn't want to tell me how much it was going to hurt. I was really, really pissed then. I can handle pain, especially when I know it's coming. If he had told me, I would have felt alot better about it. I just wanted to leave. He was treating me pretty badly, and I am surprised that I'm even going back to get my nips done there. Well, I guess the only reason I'm getting them done there is because he is the only person who would do it. I'm fifteen years old, but they said they would do it, only because I've been going there for 2 years and they know I know what I am doing. That, and I am pretty much fully developed. It's going to be weird, though, taking my shirt off in front of him. I've known him for a long time, so it's going to be pretty strange. I'm all hyped up, because it's December 28th, and my nip appointment is on the 31st. Whoo hoo! I'm all nervous and junk, and now I'm dreaming about the piercing, which, to me, means I'm seriously hyped over the whole thing. I dreamt about my nose, my eyebrow, my tongue, my lip, and now my nips. =) Happy happy. Anyway, the lip hurts. That's all you need to know. It fucking hurts.
