Bloody mess nose piercing story

So I’ve wanted my nose pierced since I was younger, but my dad always said no 🙁

A few days ago I was stuck at a car dealership with my mom waiting for her car to get an oil change and I knew there was a piercing place down the street so I asked my mom if we could get my nose pierced and she have me the usual answer “ask your father” so I knew I was screwed, but I texted him anyways and he said yes cuz I’m 17 and finally deserve it ❗ So I looked online on my phone to check the hours for the piercing place I knew of and they said they were permanently closed, I was NOT happy!

I was so ready for this! So I chose a silver 18g ring and went to the waiting area and obviously got a little nervous, I already have 5 different ear piercings but I never got my nose pierced before.

A guy came out and called my name, my mom couldn’t come in with my cuz my little sister was with her and wasn’t allowed in the room so I was going in alone. He sat me on a chair that kind of looked like a dentist chair and sterilized my nose.

This piercing is my mother’s day gift ❗

Everything was going well, nose being prepped, and decision with a dot for which side. I picked out a cork screw piece of jewelry for my nostril (big mistake).

The procedure began (ouch) and then my piercer proceeded to insert the jewelry. It wasn’t going in well, and the bleeding started… 🙁
