Well it was quite an eventful day yesterday. I have to say I wasn’t nervous, more excited than anything. I pierced my own nose years ago at University. Crazy, and after yesterday I’ve no idea how I did it myself – I must have been determined and drunk, and the bag of frozen peas must have helped.
I made my decision on Monday that I was finally going to do some piercings, and I made my appointment with Piercing Experience in Atlanta. I know piercings aren’t to everyone’s taste, just like tattoos, and oddly much as I love piercings, I’ve never wanted a tattoo mainly as I don’t know what I’d have tattooed – there’s nothing of significance that I want to preserve in ink. At first I wasn’t going to have my nose re-pierced, then I thought ‘what the hell, while I’m there why not?’. I also had wee diamond tragus and helix piercings.
The photo that inspired me to begin with – I think this looks so pretty:
Christina was amazing – she explained everything, and was incredibly professional. It was not intimidating at all, some pain of course – but far less than I’d prepared myself for. Piercing Experience don’t use clamps or guns so it’s all completely sterile and as gentle as piercing through a tough piece of cartilage can be! I was also really impressed with their choice of jewelry – from fine jewelry like I chose, to tribal and glass jewelry – it’s also all surgical implant grade. I’m thrilled – I can’t wait to scare the PTA:)
Now I just have deal with my Husband’s silly little jokes about avoiding magnets and the like – he’ll tire of it soon I hope!
It’s freezing here in Atlanta this week so I wrapped up well yesterday.

Today is very much a dress down Friday after a few glasses of wine last night to calm the nerves:) Also – very manky – but I wanted to keep my piercings dry for another day to help with healing so I didn’t wash my hair – that definitely made it a hat day! The jumper has to be the BEST cashmere sweater ever. It is a men’s Uniqlo crewneck size Medium. Perfectly soft and slouchy. I want one of these in every color – this is the dark grey.
Sneakers – Golden Goose // Jeans – Diesel Fayza Jogg Jeans // Sweater – Uniqlo Men’s cashmere // Hat – J.Crew
