Yes, well…not quite true…
Actually, i got my ears pierced. The style is called an “industrial”. It’s basically two outer rim piercings connected by a barbell. Look up “industrial” and “piercing” in any search engine and you’ll find out (i’d post a link to a very good piercing site, but often it breaks the rules here about that stuff, I think.
So, the story goes: about 4 years ago, i came across this type of piercing on the net. I immediately liked it. It was just so…original. So, i knew i wanted it, but didnt know if i’d ever get it. Then, just a couple of weeks ago in Chat, i was talking about it with oldie, and we decide to go up to San Francisco to get it done at a shop called “Body Manipulations”. He had some stuff come up, so we postponed it for a week, which was today. So, today, we go up to SF, with Rasa, and Zyzz also, and get to the shop. I wont explain all the details, but, i’ll just say that when the piercer did pierce my ear, it did hurt, quite a bit. But not really as bad as I thought it could be. Being two piercings, i endured this ordeal basically twice! The Piercer was excellent (and quite a hottie, plus a local of my area, basically), and the shop was wonderful.
Right now i’m healing it. It bleeds a bit (it’s not what i’d call excessive, which would be constantly flowing down my ear). It only hurts if touched (and i only touch it to clean it). Overall, a great experience. I most likely will get the other ear done, and at the same place too.
A great day, despite the sucky weather (rain).
