family bonding

sunday we planned on having a pretty relaxed day. we had to get the mive tshirt/hoodie orders ready to be shipped but other than that we were going to do nothing. around 2pm we get a call from traci (tony's sister) asking all sorts of questions about cartilage piercings. i talked to her for a minute..and within that time she told me that her mom wanted to get her cartilage pierced. i told her that i usually go to eternal which is down the street from my house. both tony and i wanted to witness his mom getting pierced so they said they'd come pick us up.

maybe it's not that funny but i thought it was hilarious that at 51 years old, my mother-in-law wanted to get a piercing!

anyway, the night before we had all been talking about me getting a medusa piercing...i've been thinking about it for years but wasn't sure. there has been a lot of talk about it lately. so sunday tony said "maybe it's a sign!" so i decided to make it a bonding experience and get pierced with my mother-in-law.

they picked us up and we headed over to eternal. mom went first; not too bad she said! traci had decided to get an industrial so she went second. she didn't really like it hahah. she got ghost white and felt sick so the piercer, vanessa, gave her a glucose tablet. once she got some color back in her skin it was my turn. i have never had a facial piercing and i was afraid it was going to hurt like hell. tony and mom sat in there with me (traci is not one for needles hahah) as i got pierced and i gotta say, it was not bad! the worst part was when vanessa put the jewelry in it. but really, i have had no bleeding and today is the first day it's been swollen and even then it's not bad. i feel like i have had this forever.

i've always wanted to get a facial piercing. when i was much younger i wanted my labret pierced but a few years ago i really wanted a medusa. and i'm really glad i got it. i honestly dont know how long i'll keep it but for right now, it fits.
