new piercing!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
i got the back of my neck pierced!! it was virtually painless, and very spontaneous. i got out of work friday nite and said ya know what? im going to get the back of my neck pierced right now...so i go into the piercing place and the lady gives me the speech about how its not like a lip piercing theres more to it yada yada yada, and she sends the piecer out to talk to me, so he tells me all about it and tells me maybe i should go home and look up some stuff online and think about it and come back, i said ive thought about it, can you do it now? so he took me in the back marked me up and did it, barely any pain, he kept asking if i was ok, when i was done he asked if i felt good enough to stand, i said im fine lol. so far so good, no swelling, no healing pain like a reg piercing, i have to put a hot papertowel compress on it 3x a day with sea salt to ensure proper healing and when in the shower let the hot water run down the back of my neck. im glad i finally did it, this year for me is all about doing, not talking, ive talked about volunterring to help animals forever and this neck piercing and ive done both.

and the reason i got it done is i think is a very pretty adornment when you wear your hair up

Congrats

Did you end up going with a nape piercing or the Madison? While not a piercing I would do, I've seen some that look great. One of my friends had a Madison and it migrated

Would love to see pics of yours

Looking forward to pics!

I wanted a nape for awhile, but I am afraid of it not healing properly and leaving me with a scar on the back of my neck instead! Especially because I end up rolling onto my back a lot when sleeping, and also have long hair to get caught on it!

I had one piercing that did. Picture a clock.... one hole at 9 and one at 3. The 3oclock hole stayed put, but the 9oclock hole moved gradually over to between 12 and 1. Hurt like heck, and I had to remove that piercing. (it was NOT a surface piercing either....surface piercings tend to migrate easier... on some people).

i also thought migrating meant when it starts to grow out, your skin will keep healing and pushing it closer and closer to the surface until most of the barbell is hanging out, and thene you have to take it out, thats more common with surface piercings, thats why they used a diff barbell on my neck, its shaped like an upside down staple, its supposed to reduce resistance so its less of a risk of it growing out.

so anyway today i decided i was just going to tell my mom about the piercing instead of trying to hide it until she saw it, well when i told her she called me a few choice words, told me that im 31 and should grow up already, then when i told her where she called me an A-hole again, then when i showed it to her she got really disgusted, told me i needed help and should see a psychiatrist. She will get over it so i laid the guilt trip right back on her and said considering thats the only thing i do in my life that you dont agree with i think thats not so bad after all....its all good tho cause i know in a few days we will both be laughing and joking about it.

so i figure maybe ill wait til next week to tell my dad

That's funny. My parents, who are 65 and 81, are pretty open-minded about things like tattoos and piercings. I have 6 piercings in my left ear, but no body piercings and no tattoos. (Even my parents have tattoos!) It's like the complete opposite of your situation- my parents are cooler than I am!

Yea my parents 'disapproved' of my piercings (I only have two!) but they REALLY freaked when I came home with a tattoo. I pulled the same thing - if the only thing I do that you don't like is get a tattoo, do you really want to push this? Then suddenly they got over it.

finally..as promised, i had to figure how to get it from my phone to my computer...



oh and i told my dad this weekend, he wasnt exactly thrilled, he told me i was a nut, and that im going to be 32 and need to grow up, then made some comments about how he wishes id come over one day and tell him a suprise like i enrolled back in school...he didnt even ask where the piercing was, and when i asked him if he wanted to know, he said he didnt even want to know, that was basically it and we just went on with our visit just talking about normal things, and i seen him today and he was fine, so he def took it alot better than my mom lol
post #19 of 26
It looks cool, but ouch!! I dont think I could handle that...lol
post #20 of 26
Wow!!!! That's soooooo cool!!!! Awesome! Oh brother... you are giving me ideas..... I love the fact that it is hidden, so you can still be professional when you need to be, and have an edge when you want to... Did it hurt a lot?

I recently got my monroe done and I love it. I think done properly piercings can be beautiful accents. I'm contemplating getting some dermals done. It's basically anchors implanted into your skin so all you see is the sparkle of the jewel. I think it looks way cute on you

ive contemplated the monroe, but since i already have a lip ring i didnt want to go facial overkill and thank you!

and honestly it looks like a very painful piercing wich made me stall on getting it done for so long but its virtually painless, you only feel a little pick when they punture the holes on each side of your neck, when he was ready to stick the needle all the way thru i braced myself lol but it didnt hurt at all.
post #23 of 26
Looks awesome on you

I'm more into tattoos than piercings... have my ears, tongue and one other piercing that is not appropriate to say . I am contemplating a small stud in my nose though, but thats it.

I'll admire everyone else's piercings

I've had my nose done for a few years now and I couldn't decide on a lip ring or the monroe. So I went online and looked them both up and the monroe was just so sassy looking I had to do it. But my piercings are on opposite sides of each other so it balanced out nicely.

WOW! that is mega!

i dont want to sound like a perv but damn that is sexy! a growing trend over here in the uk is for girls to have the bottom of their back pierced, where girls tend to have tattoos anyway, i totally dig that.

i never used to like chics with tats and piercings but i love it now, especially with a mild punk/emo look, mmmm mmm lol!
