4 comments on “My Thoughts on Piercings and Five Reasons You Know You’re Addicted to Them

  1. There are so many things in this post I want to comment on… Brace yourself! 😉
    Okay, here we go.
    I too got my first earrings when I was like 5 or something. Just regular lobe stuff. When I was 15, a friend of mine got a third earring (right next to the regular one) and I wanted one as well… My parents were against it, but I waited long enough and eventually, I got a third one shot.
    Piercing guns are evil indeed though. I didn’t heal all too well… But I never regretted it. It would be my very last.

    Not. A few years later on I wanted a helix (what you’ve got now as well, but a single one). I doubted for ages and ages, finally decided to get it done, then started to doubt again and eventually decided I wouldn’t do it.
    To end up doing it one year later on. I was just tired of the doubts.

    I’m so very happy I got it done though! It feels good to just have it all the time, even when I go to sleep. As you say – this is me, take it or leave it. This one’s supposed to be my very last, but I must say I like the feeling of a new jewel, that’s more than just a regular jewel – it’s forever and stuff.

    Tattoos though, hmmm… I don’t think I’m allowed to go home with one. These four earrings were already slightly harsh for my parents to get over… But I do like tattoos. I don’t think I’ll ever get one though, because it’s really eternal. Take out a piercing and there’s but a hole. You can’t do that with a tattoo, so you really have to like it forever…

    Sorry for this really long comment. It was just a really nice post I guess :).

    • No worries–I love really long comments 😀

      Thank you–and thanks for sharing, No Blog Intended! I think that those who really think about doing something, waivering between having one foot behind them and having one foot in front of them, have the greatest satisfaction when they just take the leap. It’s great to know I wasn’t the only one who took a while to figure things out. Seriously, needles freak me out. Glad you triumphed over your doubts and were happy with the results! 🙂

      • As you mention it – the lady in the piercing shop said: “Don’t think about it, just do it!” and I was like ‘eeerrm, I’ve been thinking about this for two years…’ 🙂
        But it’s for ever you know, you really have to think about it! You’d hink about marriage or children as well, right?
        I wasn’t afraid of the needles, luckily. But it’s one the things people frequently ask: “Did it hurt?” And then I’m like: “Yeah, well, they ram a needle through your ear, have a guess…”

      • Y’know, none of my other piercings hurt, really. The worst have been my cartilage, my rook being the worst in terms of soreness. My orbital is second, mostly because my hair gets stuck in it.

        I agree, it’s good to think things through. There’s also something great about spontaneity, though maybe not for body modifying (some do, but whatever floats their boat eh?)
