On Saturday, I did something spontaneous.
I got myself a nose piercing!
To my parent's dismay but six piercings and 3 tattoos later I don't think they can have a say anymore!
So, I thought I would run through what you need to know before you get your nose did.
I have I would say a normal pain threshold - I have had three tattoos and one on the ankle so my pain threshold is pretty good.
It does not hurt like you think your nose will drop off or something, and it is over fairly quickly. But, it feels like a thick bar has gone through your nose and your eyes water.
Afterwards I did get a headache - but I think this was purely the adrenaline rush that I got and after some food I was fine.
In terms of cleaning it, this has to be two times a day - and I have set a reminder on my phone so hopefully I won't forget.
You can use contact lens solution but I use salt water - a 1/4 teaspoon to 1 cup of hot water.
Of course, you will probably get a lump as well - like I did on my cartilage piercing but they come and go.
And well my nose has not stop running since and the option of blowing my nose is out of the window as it still a little bit sore.
But, apart from that it is worth it and I love it.
