For my Rhinoplasty operation on Tuesday (1 day away!) I have to take out all my jewelery incase my heart stops and they need to use those zapper thingos that you see in movies.. Basically if I live my jewelery in, cos the bars are metal, I'll get electrocuted.
Anyways, with my nape piercing (check it out here) because it's a staple bar (looks like a staple) I'm too sooky to take it out myself, so I went to a piercer. He's so hot! He has 3.8cm fleshies! ahhh and FOUR lip piercings. num num num.
He took it out, didn't really hurt, although I could feel the staple-ly bit scratch my inside skin (??) when it was being dragged out.
I didn't notice till I got home that it bled a little.
Here are some pics lol
Here's the staple bar that I had in.
My nape piercing is still an awesome piercing, and I love it. Even if they didn't have plastic retainers to put in, I would've taken it out for the surgery, and then got it re-pierced a few weeks later.
I recommend this piercing to everyone, cos it's awesome. (My opinion, don't care if you don't like it)
Tragus and Navel Retainers
These are the retainers for my Tragus piercing (ear) and my Navel (belly button). Didn't really have much choice over the balls, it was eiither clear or these weirdo designs lol Doesn't really matter though, because I'll put in my metal bars straight after surgery.
Navel Ring and Scars from Previous/Failed Piercing
A few months ago I got a surface piercing that went horrizontally across my navel. It's a shitty picture, but you can still see the scars from where it was. It turned bad and you can read about it here.
I've had my belly pierced since I was 13 :) It's my fav piercing, usually I get sick of piercings and take them out, and I did take out my belly ring, but only to change the bar, but ebcause it was fairly new, it grew over! That was about 3 years ago, and I got it pierced about 3weeks after it grew over.
This is just a way funny picture bellow, my legs are like bowed in, and my boobs look like my back? lol seriously.. Waaay out of whack in this pic lol
Ps. Note how you can still see the scars from the horizontal piercing? Even from that far away? They're kinda obvious.. I like them though :) Scars are fun! I have a cool one underneath my boob, and have nooo idea how I got it!
