If you haven't already seen my new profile pictures on social media, then let me fill you in on something that happened recently....
I got my nose pierced!
I've been wanting to do this for years and never quite plucked up the courage to go and get it done so i kept putting it off. Cue one Hen weekend later and i'd finally plucked up the courage to have it done along with a group of boss ladies that i know but... all of the piercings studios we found, the piercer was on holiday. Go figure eh?
Fast forward a few weeks later and i had a day off work and the thought entered my brain again. I looked up where i could get it done in Sheffield and landed on Blue Banana's website which a friend had mentioned previously. As it was only a 10 minute journey away, i was slowly getting restless when a friend messaged me and told me she would come with me - and then i was off. On my way to have a needle shoved through my nose.
I arrived a Blue Banana and told them what i was looking for, I'd signed up to the website so i got £10 off my first piercing which was a god send! I had a quick chat with one of the girls about using a gun or a needle and decided on a needle. Apparently it causes less of a shock to the skin than a gun does and i could choose a larger piece of jewellery to start with. I went for a black bar with a black stud on the top.
I filled out a form and signed my life away and was told to wait in the waiting area. Cue sweaty palms and shakey hands, this was real and i was definitely about to do this.
I was called in and the woman opened all the equipment in front of me, all fresh and clean as i sat on the chair like i was in a doctors surgery. Next she clamped my nose and then told me i would feel a sharp pinch. I closed my eyes, felt a sharp pinch and then waited for more pain but there was nothing. I opened my eyes and i had a lovely clear plastic tube sticking out of my nose. She then pushed the tube out and the stud through the pierced skin. That was it, done and dusted.
The only thing i felt was a sharp pinch and the most painful part was putting the stud on the end as i have a tiny nose and it was very fiddly! I left about 5 mins later with some salt and tea tree oil for cleaning it and a new piercing.
The swelling has gone down since i had it done around 2 weeks ago and it doesn't hurt anymore! I'm currently on the lookout for a new bar to put in it!
I am in love with it and feel sassy as hell every day now!
