I had been dying to get my second piercing in my ears done since my 11th class, seeing the girls around me sporting 4-5 piercings on one ear. But I was too scared of the pain, and my family and friends refused to accompany me because they were not interested.
Finally, I got it done with my college friend (Bench Partner :D)It ached whenever the wind swept against my face. It ached whenever I combed my hair and accidentally brushed the comb near my ear. It ached whenever I slept (I CANNOT sleep in a straight position. That's why when I turned, my ear got screwed on either side) Soframycin was(is) my saviour as I dabbed it on every night. It still ached :-(
Responses-All my college friends thought it was cool. They thought I was brave to get it done without shedding a single tear (considering the fact that practically everyone had seen me crying after we lost the throwball match and everytime when someone shouts at me) They encouraged my plan of getting a nose piercing done.(I don't know how I'll survive. But yes. I will do it!!)
My family thought it was cool. Sister sent a message through my mom to me-
"How did you let her do it?" (Hah. Jealous brat)
"How did she do it?" (Ok, good question. A guy shot my ear with a gun. Lo Behold. There was a hole and a tingling feeling in either ear)
"How does she look?" (The usual, since hardly anyone noticed it. I had to point it out and then they reacted as if they were forced to react. Gah. People suck)
My school friends haven't yet seen it. But they think I'm starting to behave like those hi-fi people we have in college. (No!! I'm still a desi girl who prefers using "abbe saali, what's up be?" instead of "what's up,bitch?")
Present Status: Single. :P Ok, bad one. So, exactly a month is over since I pierced it. FYI, after you pierce it, you are supposed to wear the screw that they shoot you with, for the next 15 days. After 15 days, I slowly removed the screws. Both of them were bloodied. YUCK.I didn't wear anything since it was aching a lot. On the 26th day, it suddenly struck me that I have a second piercing and I need to do something about it. The next day was Tamilian Diwali, and what a day to discover that one of my piercings had closed. Sob. I ran to BP and she consoled me. I had to pierce it again myself. I waited for Tamilian Diwali and Diwali to get over. On 29th, I took my ear ring and pierced it again and brought it out. No, I didn't shout. Bloodied again. Ewwwwww.
In short, all my 4 piercings are in a fine condition, although it still aches. Now, I ask you, guys and girls. IS IT WORTH IT?
p.s- I know, the title of the post sucks. Couldn't think of anything better!!!
