The first day of pre liminary lectures at university, my friend and I decided to go get a piercing. She wanted to get her nose pierced and I wasn’t planning on getting anything. once we got there and I found out that industrials were only $40 rather than the $140 I had been told in Auckland, so with only a small amount of pushing from meg, and I decided to get an industrial, and so she changed her mind and got one too :D. OUCH!!!!!!!
Several weeks on now and its starting to heal up, still really gunky and has put a lump in my ear, but it’s all good, I chose to go with black steel, extra $10 but in the end its worth it, helps it heal faster :D
boy friend has asked me not to get my nose done, and also begged me to not get anymore till my belly button and ear have healed :D
one week till university to go and i decide to use the voucher for the tattoo and piercing parlour that my friend bought me for xmas :D so thhe family planned a trip from keri to auckland and then after a lovely visit with the grandparents where i almost got away un scathed, untill mum dropped me in it apparently im very dissapointing wat with dying my hair black and getting a piercing !!!
oh wells, i get to the piercing place and discver the one i want is $140 OMG !!! so i go for the belly button instead at a comfortable $60 …. man did it hurt when he pushed that needle through !!!!
and then it bled so much !!!! hahah but about 8 weeks on, it still gunks but is healing very nicely, not infected or anything, using this diluted tea tree oil stuff on it and salt washes :D
