Who nose?

Since my move to California, I've been thinking about getting my nose pierced.

This is how my thought process has gone...

I want to get my nose pierced.
I should read up on nose piercings.
I read up.
I watch a video of a nose piercing on YouTube.
I decide to not get my nose pierced.

But after hearing from a handful of wise people about how my nose is fantastic, how I should totally go for it, and after reading up on it a bit more, I decided to get stabbed in the face.

Tahoe Caitlin provided emotional support through the process. I do have an unusually high tolerance of needles and pain (per the 'betes), so it wasn't bad at all. Just a few seconds of ouch. It was a little awkward to have someone clean my nose out with a Q-Tip, and a little different to have a needle so close to my eye, but hey...

So, maintenance goes like this: I clean it and soak my nose in salt water twice a day. Soak my nose! I went for a surgical steel stud but eventually will replace it with something like one of these beauties!

Happy Thursday!

I love it. It's so cute.

P.S. How immature am I? I laughed at "nose screw."
