The first piercing I got was my Monroe. This piercing, unlike popular belief, was just as (if not less) painful as getting an ear piercing ❗
A year after, I decided to get my right nostril pierced.
Both piercings were done at a local studio called the ColourBox in Green Bay, Wisconsin. My piercer was the most calm and steady I’ve ever met. To this day, she is still the one I go to! 😉
The process for the Monroe, was a simple slide of the needle. There was no clamp, just a quick one-and-done. The nose, however, required a clamp. The process was more painful (as it is cartilage and filled with nerves) and did make me cry.
The crying was not due to the pain, but rather the fact that the piercing is so close to your tear ducts and from all the nerves ❗

This nose piercing story was sent in by Kelia Williams.
It all started with a visit to New York – which is where I’m from! 😉
The whole trip all I talked about was getting my nose pierced as I wanted it done for a while and I refused to start my senior year in high school without one!
Luckily they got the hint and took me to Brooklyn to get it done the next day. This was going to be my 5th piercing and even after all of those I was still scared 😡
The guy we went to said he was experienced but I was weary because I’m usually a loyal Claire’s piercee but they don’t work anywhere below the ear. He asked me which one I wanted and they were all pretty much the same but I picked a gold plated diamond stud.

Hi everyone Iâ€™m Janine and Iâ€™d like to share my nose piercing story with you. I am known to be the biggest baby when it comes to pain. I hate needles; I mean I REALLY hate needles! Ever since I can remember just the sight of a needle has made me want to faint which sucked because I really wanted to have my nose pierced. All of my friends were talking about it and one of my friends went and had it done. It looked amazing and I really wanted one.
I chatted about it with my mum and she first said I was too young. I begged her for two weeks and she finally gave in but said I had to have her with me and we had to go to a professional piercing salon. I was so excited but really nervous too!
We went to see a piercer not far from where we live in Miami and he told me exactly what to expect. He even showed me pictures of piercings he had done. Some of the pictures made me feel sick but I was still excited. My mum asked loads of questions and checked I was old enough which I was (you had to be at least 13). Then we got to choose what type of jewelry I wanted so I chose a really cute nose ring. They were fully booked for that day so I had to wait another week until I could get the piercing done. That week dragged so badly.
When I finally went back my stomach was doing flips and I felt so sick. I was thinking of backing out but I really wanted the piercing so badly. Then when it came to the actual thing it wasnâ€™t as bad as I thought it would be. I wonâ€™t lie – the part where they put the nose ring in did hurt. My eyes watered really badly and I wanted to cry. I didnâ€™t but when they twisted the ring around I held onto the chair so tight my knuckles were completely white.
Now that Iâ€™ve had it done I am really glad that I didnâ€™t back out. Iâ€™m now the envy of all of my friends and I have a really cool diamond stud which looks super cute!
