10 Years!

A decade of being a nose pierced beauty! I’ve always wanted to have a nostril piercing and on Thursday, 15 July 2010, mom and I were coming home from a business trip in Brandywine, MD and before we stopped off at Main Line Tattoo and Piercing, I called to see if they took walk-ins and they did.

At around 4, we arrived, a piercer and tattoo artist greeted us, I filled out the forms, he checked my ID, and 15 minutes later, he took me back to pierce my nose. He said, “keep still and don’t flinch because your nose will split if you move.” I told him I understood. He cleaned my nose, raised his hand and quickly put the needle and gem through. I had my nose pierced and after it was pierced, I passed out. It didn’t hurt at all, but I was hungry and the room was humid. He gave me a lollipop and I perked back up.

Mom and I left after I perked back up. She said, “wow, looking good!” Went home, took photos, and enjoyed my piercing.

10 years later, I still love my nose piercing! I had the ring put in my nose in April 2016, before I went to Toronto. I had planned on taking it out and going back to a stud after my trip. However, I decided that I loved the ring and I still have it in! The only time I had it taken out was for my MRI and they put a plastic stud in instead. After, I had the ring inserted. I am still a nose pierced beauty! Also, while my 21 year old self was lovely, I’m digging my 31 year old self even more. Ü

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I think it’s cool that you keep track of the exact dates you underwent procedures to get piercings and tats and celebrate the anniversaries as they roll around. It shouldn’t surprise me because you are meticulous in your record keeping via your scrapbooks and Happiness Box. Congratulations on ten full years of being a nose pierced beauty! Let’s agree to meet back here exactly ten years from now for updated pictures when you are age 41. I predict you will still have the same winning smile. 🙂

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
