Piercing my nipples
I got my first piercing when I was 14, my mom took me to get my belly
button pierced. When my boyfriend got his tongue pierced two years ago we started getting intrusted in more hard-core piercings as we figured if the tongue could help out with sex, so could anything else. We go to a went to a strict catholic school where we wore uniforms and the whole deal so obvious facial piercing were out of the question until we left. But when one girl came in with her nipples pierced I found what I wanted to do. I was only 16 and my mom would not agree, besides, most places here in Boston won't do any sort of nipple/genital piercing under the age of 18 under any circumstances. Besides that, the idea of some guy grabbing my nipples to pierce them did not appeal to my boyfriend. I could respect that much, as he had decided what he wanted was a PA and the thought of a guy grabbing his dick to pierce that did not appeal to me either.
But by the time I finally turned 18, I'd let go of my fear of the piercer
groping my boyfriend and told him I thought he should get done whatever he
wanted. I of course did this in the manipulative way of hoping he'd see that
if I could change my mind, he probably should too. It worked. The weekend
after my eighteenth birthday we went to the same place I'd gone to for my
navel and eyebrow for our appointments with Mike.
Some places won't allow someone to come with you as a hand holder, luckily
for me I could take my boyfriend back with me for moral support. The night
before I'd called my brother at college hoping he'd be able to give me some
comforting words as he'd had his nipples pierced that past summer. It told me
it was going to hurt like Hell and coming from him, that was absolutely no
comfort. He has seven tattoos and has gone through 15 pierces (he's taken
some out along the way) and he said his nipples hurt the most. So by the time
I sat down in Mike's black leather chair my hands were already soaked with
sweat. When he was finally ready to begin he told me to take off my shirt and
bra. I am extremely self conscious so for me, although the pain was yet to
come, this was the worst part. I reminded myself, as I had my boyfriend,
hundreds of times in my head that this was his job, he was not paying
attention to anything but the piercing.
First he had to clean my nipples to get them ready to mark. The room was
pretty much freezing so when he got out the marker they were already hard enough for him to see what he was doing. I was having both done at once figuring that if I did it at once I wouldn't be able to chicken out and be suck with only one nipple pierced. He marked both and then began sterilizing his equipment. I watched him pull the clamp out of the whatever it is he used to sterilize tools, it looked like a rice cooker to me. He got out the set of needles too and was ready to start the actual piercing.
In the past, the clamp was the only part that in any way felt
uncomfortable, but this time when he stuck the needle through the first nipple
tears streamed down my face and I could feel my face getting hot from not
letting out my breath. My boyfriend was holding the opposite hand and he told
me later he thought I was going to break his fingers. The second nipple felt
just as bad and when I looked down my chin all I could see were the two
needles sticking through my nipples. It is a bizarre sight to see anything
attached to your nipples and it made the pain go away for a bit. He got the
jewelry ready, he was using 16 gauge rings, and then threaded them both
through. The whole thing happened very quickly, but my nipples immediately
began to throb and burn. My breasts were entirely red, but the rings were
through. He told me to just lie still for a couple minutes so that I wouldn't
pass out when I sat up, but even when I finally did, the room spun and my
boyfriend had to support my back so I could stand up.
I didn't want to put my shirt back on right away because any sort of
touching of my nipples was going to kill me. I propped myself up in the other
chair in the room while my boyfriend got pierced himself, I guess that hurts a
lot less, but he can tell that story. Anyhoo, when we could both walk we got
ourselves home and for the next two nights it was ice on, ice off for my
nipples. After that they more or less didn't feel too bad. It took a while
to get used to, for the first week or two tears would well in my eyes whenever
someone accidentally hit me. After those two weeks, everything felt normal
again. I washed them as I was supposed to. Twice a day with warm salt water
and antibacterial soap, I did so for the recommended two months though they
were pretty much healed before then.
When we were both ready to function sexually again, the whole process
definitely seemed worth it. My boyfriend has always had a thing for my nipples and with the tongue ring it was great, but with the added jewelry, it was that much better. I can deal with pain for two days to get the lasting benefits of my nipple rings.
