My lovely little Medusa

ally got my medusa pierced. I had been wanting to have another needle stabbed through my face for quite some time now, and I was really indecisive about what exactly I wanted to get pierced. I already have my labret, tongue and hood done, and I really wasn't quite sure what exactly I wanted to do. I knew it had to be something on my face, because now I finally found a job where they accept piercings. So, after many times of coming on BME and looking aimlessly through the piercing index, I finally found one that I could settle with, the Medusa. What better day to go and get it done, than on my birthday too?? So I dragged along two of my friends to witness the piercing, since neither of them had ever seen someone get anything near their mouth pierced before. I walked into the studio, Phat Kat in good old Hartford, Connecticut, and told Mickey, some "dude" who pierced me ( he had asked where I got my labret done, and I've had it for so long that I forgot who had done it, but I remembered the studio... so I told him that some "dude" at this particular studio did it, and he just warned me that if anyone ever asked where I got my medusa done, NOT to say some "dude...") anyway back to the story... so I told Mickey that I wanted to get my Medusa pierced. He picked the jewelry out and went into the back to prepare. I really wasn't concerned about the pain, I've been in that "oh my god is it going to hurt??!?!?!" stage of piercing many times before. I was more concerned about how ridiculous I was going to look with a Medusa and a Labret. I like piercings a lot, but when there are too many on my face, I just don't dig it. But I figured I would just suck it up and get it done, if I liked both of them together then I'd keep them, and if I liked one more than the other, I'd take one out. As I was taking a look at some of the portfolios of tattoo artists there, Mickey peered around the corner and asked if I was ready. I went into the back, including the piercer, my two friends and about 6 other people that were back there, they got to all experience my piercing. I rinsed my mouth out with listerine and then sat back down in the chair where it all began. I asked Mickey if he could tell me step by step what he was doing as the procedure went along. I like to know what is going on, when it is going on, especially if I can't see what is going on. He cleaned me up, dried the inside of my upper lip off, marked the positioning of the jewelry and put the clamps on. I admit, my heart started to race a little bit. Partly too because there were so many people back there staring at me, but I guess that's my fault, I told Mickey that I didn't mind if they stayed. After a couple minutes, well what seemed to be a couple of minutes, Mickey got the right positioning of the clamps and held the needle up. He told me that he ready to pierce me now and that's when I started to take the deep breaths in and out... in and out, in and out.... and then the needle went through. Yes it hurt, not a lot though... it's like biting your lip really hard. Naturally any piercing will hurt a little bit, I mean, it is a needle piercing your skin. So Mickey finished the piercing up by putting the jewelry in and cleaning my face up. It didn't bleed, which I was surprised because my labret bled a little bit. I jumped up to look at my new piercing and I fell in love with it! But I had to sit back down again because from me jumping up so quickly and the adrenaline rush that didn't completely wear off, I almost felt like I was going to throw up. So I sat back down for a good five minutes and gathered myself, I didn't puke!... YAY me! The only thing I'm having a really hard time adjusting to is two balls so close to my mouth. I've seen it on one other person and it looked awesome, I just think it will take some time getting used to because there is no way that I'm taking my labret out any time soon, I love it too much. I just got my medusa done about two days ago, it's still a little swollen and it doesn't hurt at all. And when it heals, Mickey advised me to go back and see him so he could order a smaller post and a smaller ball. I'm really excited about this new piercing, it's different and that's what I was looking for. I should have a picture posted up on BME sometime soon so everyone can see!!
