After some thought, I figured I’m going to get my tongue pierced. I was intrigued by Rachel’s jewelry, and we talked about it and I think a tongue would be pretty cool. I’ll update afterwards. I’m a little anxious since its my first piercing, but I trust her and she’s cool about things.
Update 10:44PM –
So I got it peirced on my tongue. I was calm about it though since Rachel was there she just got her eyebrow done and didn’t even flinch and it was so quick, that gave me relief. So anyhow, we get started and just prep stuff and the tattoo artist is really cool and was nice, and just one step at a time, and he did my tongue. It hurt just a bit, but not as bad as I thought. I did well, and Rachel was very cool and coaxed me along. It was like 5 minutes, really nice; $41 and a little tip. Well we go back and Rachel prefaced how the rush of adreline will come and hit you and you get light headed. I didn’t feel it that much until I was staring at the wall (I have this weird thing with depth perception and weird thing my brain does…) so I felt lightheaded, then just relaxed a bit and I felt better – at least I thought I was. So we’re out there, Rachel again reiterates the fact ‘am I okay to drive’; luckily she wanted to smoke a cigarette. I was like cool, just chilling there. Then I hear her say “are you ok?” I realize my hesitation and I replied “yeah I’m — fine”, realizing my knees are bent I look around for a plane to level myself against. Then I was like losing balance- blacking out and luckily she was there to help me not fall. Then I just relaxed a bit, still mentally there, just the spots and stuff were slowly fading away. Anyhow, we then relaxed in the car I was going to let her drive, but she didnt want herself too, she has an issue with driving, fear, and inexperience. Which I was like okay, well whatever, lets just relax for a bit. She tried to call her aunt for a ride or something – but it didnt pan out, but after relaxing with the A/C I was good, then we went back to her place for a bit.
I will see about getting pics up a bit. but it looks good, and proportional, I’m satisfied with it, and its a very liberating feeling. I may not get another piercing anywhere else though. Next plan – tattoo. Later on though. I dont want to keep doing stuff to my body. 😀
