i got this piercing done professionally, paid $50 for it. i took it out about 2 or 3 days later. the place i went to was actually where i got my first nostril piercing done.. and i only went there because my normal piercer was out of town and i was way too impulsive. i paid 50$ and tipped her like 5 bucks i think…. while she spent probably 15 minutes trying to get this giant ass barbell through my chest. it’s the most pain i’ve EVER been in. my boyfriend couldn’t even stand to watch. i felt like i was going to faint/throw up and i was covered in sweat by the time she was done. afterwards i went home and actually researched the piercing, and videos i saw of it being done looked a milllllllion times better. needless to say i won’t be going back to that shop… and now i still have an ugly scar… about 3 months later. i’m hoping to get a microdermal in it’s place sometime.
