How to get a piercing
How I did it: Last September, I went to a tattoo and piercing convention, and got one septum piercing done.
It was a pretty cool experience, I'm willing to get more piercings
Lessons & tips: Well, save some money, get the guts, and do it! And when you're getting it done, be calm.
Another tip, eat well before doing it, a friend of mine was getting a piercing, he didn't eat before going to the shop, and got too nervous, so he threw up.
Oh, another thing. Getting your septum pierced, does not hurt. Everybody was telling me that it was one of the most hurtful places to get pierced. Non-sense.
