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 ❗

Starting at a very young age I LOVED the pierced and tattooed look. As anybody who has been pierced knows there’s the dreaded “need to be 18” factor or the even more dreaded “attempt to get parental consent”.
When I was 15 after a lot of begging and pleading and deal-making I convinced my dad to sign for my nose piercing. My main reason for choosing my nose was the awareness that it was one of a select few piercings I actually had a shot at getting my pops to agree to.
I’ll never forget. .. He finally said yes on a Wednesday afternoon but told me I had to wait until Saturday. At the time it felt like the longest few days of my life. Finally Saturday morning came.
I’d love to tell you I picked the shop because of its stellar reputation or great reviews but in reality I went online and found which shop was open at 10AM and a reasonable distance from my house. Off to Rock A Billy we went…
I arrived just as they clicked the open sign on, giddy with excitement. I had my dad and best friend with me. (I got really lucky that it is actually a very reputable shop.) I walked in and the lime green walls filled with tattoo flash and the walled of section in the back with a sign that read “Get Poked “above the curtain, caused my excitement to sky rocket ❗

So I was 12 when I decided to continue on with the tradition of getting my nose pierced. It runs in the family for the ladies to have it. So 3 years passed and one day I was pumped and ready to do it! 😉
On the way there I was saying how I’m going to take it like a champ. We got to the place and there was a lady named Linda, she was going to perform the piercing for me.
She gave me the marker and asked me to dot where I wanted it. I found the perfect spot on my nose.
Before she even grabbed the clamps I broke down crying. Like sobbing and everything! 😡
I begged my mom to not get it but then my boyfriend Sam, walked in and I had to pick myself up. He asked if everything was fine and I said yes. I knew I had to go ahead and get through with this.

It took about half a year for me to get my nose pierced. I wasn’t quite sure if I was ready in the beginning. I told my mom I wanted to get both my nostrils pierced because I thought it’d look cute and a couple celebrities I know have the ring and stud combo aka Chris Brown which I thought was sick as hell and different.
My mom agreed on one for now then after it fully heals she’ll take me to get the other pierced.
There’s a problem with getting my nose pierced though – my school didn’t allow piercings except for ears so I’d have to get it clear or flesh colored.
Honestly, I didn’t give a flying f**k because I already wear uniform and have a dress code for our free dress days so I wasn’t gonna get restricted on piercings ❗
I’m 16 and I got my piercing during winter break. I knew I’d get it from the same lady who pierced my ears when I was a baby so I was a bit less nervous, but the thought of the pain roamed through my mind for days!

I had been thinking for several years about getting a nose piercing. A few things that held me back were being a mom of 3 girls and wanting to be a positive role model for them. Also working in the makeup industry where I am very involved in the lives of women of every age.
It wasn’t until this year, the year I am to turn 30 that I decided to do something for myself. 🙂 One day my good friend Maria said on Facebook, “I’m thinking of getting my nose pierced. What do you think?” I commented that I have been wanting to get it done and suggested we go together. I called the shop here in my town on Saturday and made my appointment for the following Tuesday.
On Monday Maria decided she was not going to get it done because she can’t have it at work and didn’t want to wear a band aid. Ugh, sooo I went on anyway, she did come to my appointment to watch!
The shop is owned by a husband and wife both whom pierce and tattoo. The man comes out and calls me in, he’s a short plump man, filled with tattoos and no teeth. Eek I was nervous! Maria assured me she had gotten tattoos by this feller and that it would be OK. So I nervously went back with him.
Josh was his name, he noticed my nervousness immediately and questioned it. He then swabbed my nose with a numbing and bacterial agent; which was a really weird experience. Then he said to move forward to the edge of the chair and he handed me a bunch of paper towels folded up.

I wanted my nose pierced for the longest time in high school, I always thought they looked really pretty and accented the face! 😉
I asked my mom if I could do it and she said she was all for it, and told me to ask my dad too. My dad scrunched his nose and told me he didn’t think I would be able to sit through it. Lol, little did he know, I did! 😉
My mom surprised me on my 17th birthday by taking me to the tattoo shop where her and my dad always got their tattoos. I was so nervous, I was shaking a bit when I was trying to sign the papers.
A super nice guy led me into the room off to the side and asked me if I had any questions or concerns, told me how to care for and clean my piercing, and asked if I was okay. I told him I was all good, and to go for it.
He started by marking a dot on the left side of my nose, exactly where I wanted it. After that, he grabbed the needle and I of course didn’t wanna watch, so I closed my eyes…

So I Got My New Nose Piercing On The Eight Of August Which Was Just Last Week Friday.
I Basically Got It As A Symbolism Of How Pierced My Heart Felt When Someone That I Really Loved And Ended Up Hurting Me. Pretty Corny But I Didn’t Get It Just To Get It Or Be In The Crowd.
I’m A Funny Chick, Very Outgoing, and Outspoken At It Too. I Like Exaggerating Pain When It’s Really Not That Bad Whatsoever. I Guess I Do It To Overbear The Fact The Feeling Could Be A Whole Lot Worst.
So I Go In The Jewelry Store During My Lunch Break To Finally Do It And Get It Over With Because I’ve Been Dying To Do It. I Think She Sucked Because Right Now My Nose Isn’t Swollen But My Piercing Sunk.

First time I wanted a piercing I lived in New York – I was only 13 but the people that worked there thought I was like 16, but my Mum blew it saying I was a minor! 😡
But finally I got one here in crappy Texas I was shaky and scared and stared out the window sadly all the way to the piercing/tattoo place.
I was scared I thought she was going to use the clamp but she used the very sharpest needle.
I had anxiety for a moment but hey I got my nose piercing 😉

My nose piercing experience, well to begin with, when you’re about to get your nose piercing, you always have to pay attention to your piercer because you don’t wanna have to get your nose piercing redone right?
Well, I went to get my nose pierced, the experience was not so bad, it didn’t hurt at all! I was expecting pain, and swelling right after I got the piercing, but nothing, I loved my piercing, only problem was it was green… 🙁
Everyone told me it looked like a booger ❗
Rule # 2: Get a pretty silver one. Never get the color green. I was so excited that I wanted to wear the hoop nose ring!
Ugh, so there I went, 4 days later to change the nose ring, in my bathroom (bad, bad idea!) I cried because the piercing wouldn’t go in anymore! I did not feel like myself anymore. I even had to wear a fake nose hoop because I was ashamed.
After I went back to my piercer he told me I had to wait a while 3 weeks before I get it redone. I was so mad at myself 😡

I first decided to get my nose pierced because my aunt had one and I have always loved it and also as I felt I needed a change after just splitting with my bf of a year.
I pestered my mum for it for ages and she finally agreed (with much reluctance!) that I could get it done after I finished my GCSEs as a reward and also as a 16th birthday treat. This was to be my first proper piercing as all I had done before was my ears at Claire’s and my second ear piercings I had done myself.
I chose this cute little piercing shop down the road from me as many of my mates had got piercings done there before and it was the cheapest place around. I went in the day before to book my appointment but the lovely lady who owns the place just said turn up around midday, so that’s what I did but instead of being welcomed with open arms I was fronted with a tall gold teeth clad, dreadlocked man who shunned me away as a tattoo was taking place and was told to come back in half an hour 😡
For many this would deter them but I had waited too long to get this done so there was no way I was backing out now. My mate and I wandered around the secluded street for what seemed like ages in the pouring rain for the half hour, then finally retreated back to the shop.
Once back at the shop I was regarded with the same icy attitude as before and had a form thrust into my hands to sign to say I consented. I was then shown into what looked like a hole in the wall were the piercing bed was, I grabbed my mates hand for moral support and we both headed over to the guy who was doing my nose but was told she had to stay in the other room.
So I faced it alone… 🙁
