my newest addiction

Well its taken me a long time to stop thinking about what everyone else thinks and do what I want to do. But thats a whole other issue!!

About two weeks ago I was skimming through a magazine when I saw a picture of a girl with a Tragus piercing. I thought I was so pretty. The hunt for more information was on. I searched the internet for several days. Looked at pictures read stories, etc....

When my husband came home from work I couldn't wait to tell him what I wanted to do. Hes so cool because he never says no or thats stupid. hes always like okay if thats what you want cool. So I was so excited just thinking about getting it done. I decided to call down to the best place here in Reno that I know of to get pierced Black Hole. I just wanted to find out how much it would cost.

A day later when My husband was off so he could watch the kids I went. On my own. All by myself. Boy did I get a case of butterflies in my tummy when I pulled in the parking lot. But I knew I really wanted to do this for me. I do everything for everyone else. I'm a stay at home mom its my job! So this was for me. In I walked and I was greeted by the nicest girl. with the most beautiful tattoos. I told her what I wanted to get done and she said Nick would be my piercer and it would be just a few min. She asked me " So why today?" I said I don't know. I've been thinking about it for a little while and just figured I should do it instead of thinking about it! Then she helped me pick out a piece of jewelry. They have loads of cool stuff to choose from. I really wanted a straight barbell instead of a ring so she showed me all the options until I made up my mind.

While waiting for my turn I chatted with a guy who was very nice and seemed to know a thing or two about piercing he had a few himself! He showed me a book on the coffee table that had pictures of all kinds of piercings. It made me feel a little more relaxed talking to someone since I was there by myself. I always feel a little out of place in there because I'm a typical mom. even though I've always had a thing for piercing people wouldn't know that by looking at me. I always think they are thinking whats she doing here.. Even though They probably aren't .. anyways thats just me see always worried about what everyone else thinks!! I even told the guy that when I was talking to him.. He said If you like it who cares. Yes I know the story of my life.. But some how I can never get my brain to follow through on that one!

Nick got done with his other customer and it was now my turn. Back I went. It looked just like a Doctors office. Clean and sterile. It even smelled like a Dr.s office. Nick was super cool and made small talk to relax me. I was a bit scared because I had read that you hear the pop as it goes through and that it tends to bruise.

Next he cleaned it. marked it and asked if it was in a good spot for me. I said yes and then he asked me to lay back on the table. I did, he got all of his things prepared and then it was time. He said I'm going to have you take a big breath in and by the time you let it out the needle will be through. So here we go.. Big breath in and wow it was done. I expected it to hurt so bad. It didn't. I didn't ever hear the pop I was worried about. He put the jewelry in a straight barbell with a CZ. on the end. Then I looked in the mirror! I LOVE IT!! Its so pretty. I'm so happy I did it!! I've had it for about a week now. Its healing well! Its not sore or bruised. Its doing great and the after care is really easy. But the problem is that I've been hiding it from my mom because I have no idea what shes going to say.. Crazy and sad I know.. I'm a 30 year old woman whos been married for 11 years and I care what my mom thinks. But as I've already explained I'm just that way. I'm jus t going to have to come out and tell her. But you know what I realized.. If I was really that worried about what everyone thinks I wouldn't have done it in the first place. I did and I'm glad I did. Its my body and my life and I'm going to live it how I want and do what makes me happy. As long as I'm not hurting anyone else I'm allowed Right? I encourage everyone else to do the same!

Now I'm addicted. I want to do so much more.. It made me feel free. I love my body and can't wait to make some more changes for myself!
