Soooo I got a new piercing today! I’ve been wanting my septum pierced for quite some time now, so I decided that today was a good day to get it done. No better time like the present, and whatever. For all of my tattoo needs I go to my boy Travis at Odd Fellows who you might have read about in my previous Body Mods articles, but for piercings I like to hit up Defiance in Kent, Ohio. My featured image is part of the layout in the shop, and the guy on the left with the dreads, Mike actually pierced me today. He was absolutely fantastic. Let me tell you guys a little about my piercing experience today…
I’m a piercing junkie. I’ve gotten so many that I’ve lost count honestly, and in all of those piercings I’ve never once cried or felt intense pain. Well unfortunately that streak was ruined today. Ha! The clamps used to hold the area being pierced hurt so incredibly badly!! All of the pressure and pain piled on top of each other made me start crying…I felt like such a bitch! After the clamps were on initially, I just couldn’t handle it, so Mike took out the four piercings I already have on my nostrils to give the clamps some more room. He legit had to talk me into getting the clamps put back on, but it worked. I asked him if the piercing was going to hurt as bad as what I was already going through, and he looked right at me and said that the piercing doesn’t hurt at all. I thought he was kidding or just saying it to make me feel better, but he was right. “In and out, right?” I asked. And with that, the clamps were back on and I was ready to go. He gave me to the count of three and pushed the needle through, and I didn’t feel a thing. It was crazy!!! Mike put the horse shoe jewelry in and then put my four studs back into my nostrils. My nose was so sore!!! I bled like a faucet too, which was weird because usually I never bleed an excessive amount during piercings. I’m being dead serious when I say that this piercing experience was probably the most painful one that I’ve ever been through. The clamps felt like they were cutting through my cartilage and my skin felt like it was burning. It was AWFUL. And this is coming from the girl who’s gotten four dermals done at one time, four nose piercings at one time, a six hour tattoo at once, and so much more. I’m really happy with how my piercing turned out, I think it looks super cute. Mike did a great job. However, I don’t really recommend anyone with a low pain tolerance getting their septum pierced…I like to think that my pain tolerance is incredibly high and I could barely handle this one. Here’s a picture of the end result:
