Last week I got my ears pierced! For the first time ever! I was a 25 year old piercing virgin! I wasn't allowed to get my ears pierced until I was 16, but by then I didn't really care. I had never really minded until one of my best friends got married and bought all of her bridesmaids matching earrings (way cute earrings) and necklaces. I was the only one who couldn't wear them. It was a bummer. And then chandelier earring came out...I want to wear chandelier earrings!! So finally, last week, a friend called and said she was going to see her tattoo artist about a new tattoo, and did I want to meet up with her? I said sure and decided to get my ears pierced while I was there! The girl who did it was named Shay and was covered in tattoos and piercings...As my friend said, "it was a REAL piercing!" None of that sissy gun stuff by a 16 year old teeny bopper! And because it was done with needles, I was able to get hoops instead of studs. They are healing quite well! Very exciting!!
