How I Earned My Car.... And My BarbellsOk, so one day about a year and a half ago, my husband and I are sitting around talking. I don't really remember HOW the subject came up (which is not surprising, we tend to talk about some of the craziest stuff). But we were discussing piercings and tattoos. Neither one of us has any ink and both only have typical ear piercings. He jokingly asked me if I ever thought about getting my nipples pierced. My reply was... yeah sure... maybe for a car. Little did I know that he was listening that closely to the conversation.
Before I knew it, he had all the tattoo parlors in town scoped and priced as to who was the best in town for nipple piercing. He then asked if I was indeed serious when I said I would think about it... well, I am a very stubborn women and if I make up my mind to do something, it takes ALOT to change my mind. I don't like being challenged and not being able to live up to it. So I thought about getting pierced... the pain, the change to the body, the excitement my husband had about it, the pain, the healing, the pain, the excitement, the pain.... I talked to a few close friends about it and everyone thought is was cool but painful sounding.
Then my husband says... look I will figure out a way for us to buy you a car if you get your nipples pierced. Now my husband is an awesome man who I love very very much. I know that he wouldn't make me go through with it, I knew he would still find a way to get me a new car. But I decided to go ahead and do it. HE was worth it. HE deserved to have the reward of having my nipples pierced.
So Sept 1, 2011 we went to Honda and bought me my car. Then the next morning, we went to the tattoo parlor and I got both my nipples pierced. Yes it hurt like hell. No I don't think I could do that again. But I am so glad now that I did it.
I have very large nipples so I chose to get 10 gauge bars. The healing process seemed to go by smoothly. The only downside is most of the jewelry out there is 12 or 14 gauge. And even tough its been over a year since I had them done, if I keep a smaller gauge in for more then a day, the holes still try to heal up.
Anyhow when someone asked how I got my car, I tend to giggle at my little secret 10 gauge secret.
