Hey all! So I've wanted to get my nipples pierced for...probably ten years or so. I finally made the decision to do it and told my best friend. She was all for it and said she'd come along for moral support. I did all kinds of research about pain and healing and future breastfeeding, then decided to go for it. I totally psyched myself out the day of!! After work last Friday, my friend and I went for a drink (please note, piercers to not advise drinking before piercings as it thins your blood!!!! But I only had one and it really helped my courage level) then went to the piercing parlor.
After wanting to get my nipples pierced for two or three years now, I finally gathered up my courage and got them done! And boy, am I glad I did.
Yesterday (the day of the appointment), I was psyching myself out the moment I woke up. I mean, I had thought I would be so ready, I had read just about every experience on here - but when it came down to it, I was simply shaking because of my nerves! It turns out, though, that I freaked myself out over nothing: no matter what your mind tells you, it is NOT as bad as you think it's going to be!
I LOVE my nipples!
I've actually have had my nipples pierced for a couple of years now.
They get me in A LOT of trouble though!
I will show anyone who asks to see them. Shoot, you can even touch them if you want. I've never met a tongue that my nipples didn't like
Seriously though, if you're thinking of getting them done..DO IT!
The sensation is AMAZING. And they'll always be hard and begging for attention. It's incredibly sexy.
I just got my nipples pierced yesterday. I spent over a month worrying and researching. I was scared I wouldn't go through with the piercing because I get nervous. I read so many of the posts on here trying to get an idea of what to expect and I think it helped. So I wanted to share my experience with yall.
I drove with my mother to a piercing shop a little over a half hour away. I walked in told the guys behind the counter I wanted my nipples pierced. One guy asked if I was nervous. I said yes.. because I was. But suprsingly I was more nervous at home reading other people's experiences..
I got a new job and had to take out my nose ring and it broke my heart, so I wanted to get something new.- For my birthday present to myself, I decided on a whim to get my nipples done, after wanting them for four years.
I walked in, signed forms and picked out the jewelry I wanted (purple bars with purple diamonds, because yeah), then sat down and waited for them to come get me. Jared, my piercer, told me that he and another piercer would do them both at the same time, simultaneously. After waiting for about 20 minutes, they called me back.
They didn't use clamps at all.
Well, I'm 24 years old and have been looking into getting my nips peirced since I was mayyyybe 14 years old. Lol. (I've always been open minded) anywho. Today I went in to FINALLY get them. I bit the bullet said FTW and hit up my piercer. He's awesome, and I've loved his work for about 3 years now. EVERYONE said it was going to hurt and that I wouldn't pull through with the second one because the 1st one just hurts that bad. I either have an extremely high pain tolerance or I'm just not as chicken as everyone else. I didn't even FLINCH! But than again everyone is different.
I got my left nipple pierced around four months ago after I had been thinking about it for a while. I thought it would be really awkward because of where it is. Thankfully, it wasn't. The guy that did the piercing was lovely and I've recommended him to all my friends. He didn't use a clamp or any freezing spray so it was just him, me and a needle.
I'm not going to lie, it hurt a little bit. The pain is hard to explain but it was quite dull and uncomfortable when the needle was going in, but it only lasted a few seconds.
OK I went to a shop that my husband and I have used before . and are very familiar with our piercer. It was a total spur of the moment decision. Over dinner one night he was like I dare u to get or nipples pierced. ( I asked for his eyebrow to be pierced previously which he had done, so piercings turned into a game) so I was like OK!!!!
No pain what so ever. Clamps went on. Needle went through. Jewelry was put in . didn't flinch.
I'd wanted my nipples pierced for some time, but hadn't raised it with hubs as he isn't a piercing kind of guy.
I found reading other folks experiences helpful so here is mine.
I had my right nipple pierced around fifteen years ago. This was carried out with a numbing spray using a pretty small 18K gold ring. From what I recall it hurt pretty badly but healed very well using the aftercare advice given back then. I removed my shiny ring as I was pregnant and wanted to breastfeed my baby girl. At the time it was easier to let it close.
Things of course have changed a lot since then!
