I got my septum pierced and the experience was beautiful. I get piercings when I am experiencing extreme emotional pain. That seems weird but i am weird.
Anyhow, i made my appointment (with my bf) to pierce me on a Friday so i wouldnt be in pain at work. I sat down in the chair so that he could clean the area and mark the piercing spot. Then i laid down on the table and hung my head over the edge so my head would be upside down. The clamps hurt more than the piercing to me. But my tolerance for pain has grown since my first piercing. He rested the needle on the spot and i thought , "Oh shiza! This is gonna hurt!". He asked me if i was ready, told me to take a deep breath and STAB! It was done. I was a little light headed but i think that was from being upside down. There was almost no bleeding and all i felt was the pressure of the piercing. The jewelry was slid into place and i sat up and it felt like i had been punched 10 times by a rather large man in the face. That feeling lasted for about 6 hours. After that, i forgot it was there.
Its day three now and my nose is mad at me. Its tender to the touch but i also refuse to take pain killers. Im very happy with it and my mom said that she wanted one too! My mom is so savage! I love her!
