Good idea. I think I will.
Thirded, and especially because those photos make you in general look cute and the nosering look especially cute.
*blush* Aw shucks. Thanks, alla you.
Yeah, when I saw it the day we moved I figured you'd always had it and I hadn't noticed it before -- it fits you well.
Good choice on the Black Hole. I've gone there for a gift certificate for Roy's ear piercing, and a friend visited my cousin and had his tongue pierced while he was here and they let both me and Kat in the room to watch. Same proceedure as you described: completely sterile instruments, careful marking and checking of the location, and then a quick and relatively painless pierce followed closely by the placement of the tongue post and then the cleaning. It was all beautifully done -- these guys are great.
I'm thinking (if only I had money) of getting more piercings for my ears and maybe a nose piercing so I could do the cool hindi-muslim thing where I have a nose circlet and a chain that goes to my earrings. That would be so pretty I think!
Yep. It was Amanda's idea to go to the Black Hole -- they did her ears recently, too. Total pros.
i saw it yesterday, but did not think that it was new.
i recently got my ears pierced (also birthdayish), and it's difficult enough to put ears into a mug of saltwater that i cannot even quite imagine how to soak a nose
I have to fill the mug to the brim and, standing over the sink, tilt my head sideways and immerse the bottom part of that side of my nose. I'm getting better at it, although if the piercing were any higher up, I wouldn't be able to do it this way.
You can't soak a rag in salt water and push it against your nose?
(You're as pretty as ever, by the way! 7 years and counting!)
I'm not sure if "as pretty as ever" is exactly a compliment, considering how hideous some of those high school prom pictures were...
I was thinking about how I made the mental note
"rockstarling has a piercing"
and since there was no specifically contradictory note i.e.
"rockstarling doesn't have a piercing"
that i assumed it had always been there
also, makes a nonsensical exclamation:
GO SOAK YOUR NOSE
I likes that!
Go soak your nose!
I can't wait until I quit my corporate job so that I can get my nose re-pierced! I miss it muchly.
Although I must say that I do not remember soaking it in salt water. I think I just drenched it with saline and bactine a couple of times a day. Whatever works, I guess.
How long did yours take to heal? I double-checked my aftercare info, and it's actually more like four months to a year. Damn. But apparently I can substitute a saline-drenched cotton ball for the salt water soak, if holding my nose in a mug of salt water gets too awkward or annoying.
Mine healed pretty quickly, like 2-3 months. I think it's actually because I didn't take very good care of it and played with it a lot, which toughened up or something.
Note, I am emphatically NOT telling you to do what I did. I heal pretty easily. Hell, mine closed up within two weeks of taking it out. You might not heal as easily. Best to stick with the guidelines, at least for the first few weeks.
I did notice it yesterday, but didn't notice it as new, since its only the second time we've met.
Eeep! Recent pictures (the only one I've ever seen is the one on rockstargirl before SFoT)! Awesome. *educated, witty and fitting comment pretaining to piercings in general*

shot in the dark
As I remember (correctly or otherwise), you lived in Chicago for a time (dunno how long), but while you were there did you happen to make the aquantiance of a fellow named Chad, Chad Hines class of 2000? He's now my kick-ass lit teacher here at Iowa
As I talked about him on my Plan before (and no one responded), I doubt you knew him, but it's worth a shot.
This relates to the pictures via Chicago.
I don't think I've ever met Chad Hines.
That reminds me. I should post pictures. I dyed my hair purple and blue.
When I got my nose pierced it was sketch. I went into a jeweler's and he used an ear-piercing gun. Yeah...up my nose. This huge earring straight through my nosril, with the back and everything. Crazy! But I hardly ever wear my nose ring, and it has yet to close on me.
Oh yes! And yours looks really nice!
