The day I got my nose pierced it was a Saturday evening. I booked my appointment for 5pm and I strolled in the shop as happy as could be. It wasn’t until 10 minutes in the waiting room when I started to heavy breath and shake. I was scared! However, despite what everybody told me I was going to get it done. FEAR wasn’t going to dominate my life.. especially not today.
I picked out my stud, sat on the bench and took a deep breath in. And that was that. One small pinch and I had a nose stud. Simple, easy and quick.

The only thing I’m nervous about is after care. Like everyone, I’m afraid of getting it infected.
My spontaneous decision is still the best decision yet. I clean it morning and night with toilet tissue and make sure not to touch my nose with dirty hands. Flaring my nose don’t hurt and I can move my face freely without it aching. However, I do get the occasional pain when I’m cleaning inside and outside my nose.

My piercing hasn’t fully healed but I’m in a lot less pain (thank God!) I still clean it every morning and night and make sure not to touch it.
