Nose Piercing

First off, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! I hope you have all had an amazing Christmas and beginning of the year. 

The second thing, if you haven't already guessed by the title of the post, is I got my nose pierced. YAY!
I have been contemplating getting a nose piercing for a while now. So many thing to consider.  Will it look good?, Will I regret it?, Will it hurt?.
So I had never really gotten around to it. But for Christmas I got given a voucher to get it done.

I woke up this morning with complete butterflies! I had decided before hand to get it done using the needle because it is meant to be cleaner and less likely to get infected. I was so scared that it was going to hurt that I decided to Youtube people getting there nose pierced. That did not help! The process looked soooooo painful that I was -->this close<-- to just saying "no, this is not happening".
I went to get it done and the room looked like a torture chamber haha. White wall, black sponge bed, and an assortment of various needles on a steel table. (I reckon they should consider painting the walls pink. Or something more inviting). 

Anyway. The lady clamped my nostril in a pair of tong like things and then just pushed the needle through. I hadn't even realised she had finished before it was all over. I'm not going to lie and say it was completely painless, it hurt a little bit. But nothing to stress over. It was really quick, and overall I am definitely happy that I got it done! The main thing I hope anyone gains from this is: if you are considering getting your nose pierced, DO NOT YOUTUBE IT BEFORE HAND! You will completely freak yourself out when it is not that scary.


  1. Piercing and tattoo has lead to a rise in number of piercing studios and piercing shops. However, they do enhance your looks but there is certainly a level of risk involved with it.

  2. i thought school in NZ did not allow face piercings??

    1. No, not usually. But if they're small enough you can sometimes get away with it ;)
