Punctured

Mommy and Daddy are going to kick my ass.

Remember when I mentioned that my piercer is retiring out of the business? Well, when my sister told me that she wanted to get a couple of piercings, I suggested that she go to the guy I go to.

Now, remember when I mentioned that I think I’m done with getting piercings? Well it didn’t last long.

The temptation was too strong and knowing that at the end of this month my piercer was going to be gone I figured that I’d get some piercings too.

I was set on getting a double eyebrow piercing and a vertical labret, but only if there were retainers available so that I don’t get shitted on at work.

When we got to Adorned I found out that they only had one retainer so I had to figure out what the hell I was going to do. Because I’m sort of lame and wasn’t willing to get the typical single eyebrow piercing, I decided to wait on the vertical labret and took my chances on the double eyebrow and hoped that if I strategically placed my hair in front of the piercings my work wouldn’t notice the one eyebrow barbell.

And holy hell it hurt. The first one wasn’t so bad, but it’s always the second one that hurts to most (why the hell didn’t I remember this when I got a double nostril piercing?).

My sister was by far the calm one. She wasn’t shaking or clamming up the way I was. “It’s just a needle.” she said. Yeah, a sharp needle that goes in one end of the skin and out the other.

My parents are in Edmonton attending a wedding for the weekend so I figure that I have a few days of survival before they find out I got more crap done to my body.

If my mom reacts the same way she did once she found out about the other piercings and tattoos I got, I’m going to be very busy cleaning the shit off the ceiling.

Well, you are not a child anymore girl. You shouldn't be so scared of your parents. I love peircings. I'd do my eyebrow and/or my tongue but I think if I did that now I'd just look like I'm having a midlife crisis.

Dawn, it's not so much scared as it is, well, hah! Who am I kidding, I am fearful. On the bright side, the reaction wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. You should definitely get a piercing if you want one! You're still young enough that you could pull it off and in my personal opinion, a person is never too old to get a piercing or tattoo.

I will send you an email from my email address.
