Suggestions for when you just don’t know what to do. This week is all about piercings.
If you have been waiting for a sign to get that piercing, well this is it! It is the best thing you can do that is (a) cheaper than tattoos, (b) less permanent than tattoos, and (c) Just as awesome as tattoos.
I have been waiting for about four years to get a particular piercing but never actually had the balls to do it. There are so many things to consider, whether you’ll like it, if it gets infected and the healing time, which can be discouraging due to its nature. Luckily, these questions all take a quick google search as there are hundreds of pages readily available with perspectives from professionals, to those who have just experienced it. Just remember, everyone is different and the way you react will be independent from others.
At the time, I had only gotten my lobes done while in primary school. I’m sure many can relate to the experience of sitting in the pharmacy with your fingers crossed, hoping the piercing gun wouldn’t jam. It was all good, but to this day I barely wear them unless for special occasions. Hence why I took so long to muster up the courage, worried about how I would react to the new one. This is exactly why I managed to convince some girlfriends to come with me for moral support, and the hope they would decide to get one as well.
Here are some places of recommendations found through a bit of research:
This is the one I went to personally, due to the nature of it being highly praised, high quality service and jewellery, as well as being a legitimate piercing parlour. The service here was incredibly professional considering the rules of Level 2, and was instantly put at ease as the piercers were predominantly women. They offer anything you can imagine and explain the process clearly that even a beginner would have no problem. This is also a walk-in service.
The Tattooed Heart
This is also a highly praised location for piercings and also tattoos. If you have any enquiries at all, it is easy to flick them a message on Facebook or give them a call. This is however, is an appointment only parlour (at the moment) so do not forget to book in. Additionally, this is slightly cheaper than streetwise piercing if you’re not quite looking to break the bank.
Keen On Piercing
This is for all you broke Uni students. Offering most piercings for as low as $30 while still remaining on the list of the highly praised and reviewed. Additionally, they sell an awesome amount of jewellery independently if you are just looking to glam up what you already have. This is appointment only due to current Level 2 restrictions.
So, what are you waiting for? Do something spontaneous and put yourself out there. Yes, there will be pain, but it is only fleeting and the satisfaction of your new modification overrules it all.
