Fair enough, if it's stopped causing sores then I'd definitely leave it be, but if you're still having problems then I'd say it's better to go through the bother of changing the jewellery and have it heal right, than have it cause sores. If they have internally threaded bars that should ease the discomfort of changing the jewellery.

a picncher does not have any theards, it also has a tapered end(s) which i thought would work best :) maybe im just being paranoid because it my first face peicing!

Been a while now since I asked you guys about nipple piercings. Was really scared and all. But you know what? I finally did it today! So happy, and so proud of myself that I did. Wasn't that painful either! Guess when you have made a septum, everything else doesn't hurt at all in comparison haha.
But thanks a lot for the answers you gave me! Means a lot to me :D

Ah, now that i read you Kittycat, I'm wondering what I'm gonna do tomorrow: I'm supposed to have my septum done, but if the nipple is nothing compare to it.... :i6:

It hurts that bad???

Anyhow, nipple piercings rock!

Just popping in to say, I only have one piercing (I live with my parents still unfortunately and they don't take kindly to anything body-mod-wise) and its my septum. My boyfriend and the piercer were both like "ohhhh you're gonna cry like a bitch, its gonna be sooo bad, this is one of the worst ones you could get" and I was like FUCK this is gonna suck. And then... it didn't. It wasn't pleasant, its one of those weird itchy pains that makes your eyes water no matter what you do, but it wasn't bad at all. I have a pretty high pain tolerance, but even so, it was my first piercing and it was a breeze! I guess its different for everyone :lol:

My septum pinched and felt.. weird, a bit crunchy I guess I'd say. Then it felt like I'd been punched in the nose for a couple of days afterwards :lol:

I found my industrial piercing to be a LOT worse, I quite happily went to get my septum pierced alone but I'm gonna need someone to hold my hand when I go and get my industrial repierced :lol:

yeah the pinchy sucks and the popping noise is definitely more off-putting than the pain. Mine didn't hurt to bad afterwards though, only when I scrunched my nose or moved the ring or my boyfriend accidentally elbowed me. (that happened so many times I can't even count and it hurts WAY more than actually getting it peirced. I'll admit to almost crying a few times :lol: )

Mine only really hurt for the first week or two when getting dressed, I didn't realise quite how often you catch your nose on clothing :lol:

RIGHT!?! It seemed like my nose was a goddamned magnet for everything hard. I remember this one time the bf thought it would be cute to initiate a pillow fight by hitting me in the face with a pillow.. :lol: Not cool. Although in all fairness the peircer had put it slightly higher than usual and put in a small straight post so you couldn't see it at all so I could hide it from work/my parents til it healed, so I don't blame him for forgetting. But man he felt awful! :lol:

Well then, I'll give you the feed back when it is done! Probably won't be today though, as my friend is busy and i need to go to Prague for some job...

Anyhow, to go back to nipple piercing, I did mine at a tattoo convention cause it was cheaper (about 15 USD), so I was surrounded by a crowd of people. I guess it did not help me relax! It was done vertically, and when the piercer started, the needle went through, and i thought ''wow, it hurts like sh^%$&^% but now it's done'', and then i looked at my breast... to realise it was only one layer of connective tissue he had passed. I counted 3 more eheh. I had it removed when i went to the hospital, and they gave it back to me too late, so now i don't have it anymore, but i don't know if i'll do it soon.... First the septum!

I want my nips done.. kind of.. I don't know :lol: Its not the pain or the awkwardness thats stopping me (honestly there probably wouldn't be any awkwardness for me) its more the fact that I can't tell WHY I want them. I don't know if I think they'd actually look good or if its just SOMETHING I can get and hide from my parents. It sounds so lame to say that, but like I said, I still live at home, I'm jobless atm, and they're going to be paying for college, and as much as I can't wait to move out and not have to see them more than a few times a year, I do respect them :lol: At least enough to not get things they can see because I know it would piss them off. I guess that sounds fucked up but it makes sense in my head.

Get them if you want them, does it matter what reason you want them? It's not like a tattoo, it isn't a life long decision, you can always take them out, ok your nipples will be a little different, bigger maybe but that's the only difference. They are a bitch to heal though, I only have one and have had it for 4 years, I'd say it's healed, just about lol, thinking about getting the other one in the summer. Vert nips ftw.

hahah I guess you're right :lol: My bf has them.. well one now. The one on the left keeps getting pushed out and he has to keep taking it out :/ a week or two ago it was so close to the outside you could just barely make out the bar.. visible through his skin. I don't particularly want that happening :lol:

Everyone I've spoken to says the same thing, that septums are the worst! I've got mine done, I felt like I needed to sneeze, but that was about it O_O It wasn't overly painful or anything. Mind you, I'm strange and don't flinch with needles.

The worst pain piercing-wise I've had was a dermal in my sternum. God that was painful. About half of my current piercings (and about 4 of my retired ones) were pierced through scar tissue, and even still my dermal was worse. But *sigh* i miss it so :(

My septum wasn't bad at all! There was a pinch, but transitioning from the piercing needle to the jewelry was WAAAY worse. Barely even made my eyes water. And afterwards, it only hurt when it got hit, which I have to admit was pretty often.

My industrial was a million times worse than my septum. I thought I was gonna pass out afterwards. Plus I could feel the blood running down my ear... *shudder*

Septum and Industrial were definitely the worst for me! 8 years on and I can still clearly remember the horror :lol:

Still, its over quickly! The septum was a great healer.

I've had my septum pierced twice, once half through the sweet spot and the other half went through very gristly cartilage, it took ages to push the needle through, needless to say it was very crooked and I took it out after 3 months and replaced it with my scaffold piercing, which did not hurt at all. Had my septum repierced about a year ago and had no problems :) although still my most painful piercing yet.

My new hole!

Post by FaerieGirl » Wed May 25, 2011 1:59 am

Hi everyone

I know this is kind of a low-key piercing, but I love it. It's only a few hours old. This is the third time I'm had my nose pierced and hopefully the last (I'm a really fast healer, which is great for everything except piercings!). The next one will be my lip as a gift to myself for my 18th birthday. :)
