First of all- sorry mama.
Before leaving for Nepal I really wanted to pierce my nose. With my old job, they didn’t allow any out of the ordinary facial piercings. After arriving in Nepal, I noticed that
EVERYONE has their nose pierced- and I was super jealous. So I started looking around- first I looked at nose rings- here they call them pullis or if you are a foreigner they will say nose pin. I found some that liked, and two days later I bought this super cheap one, so if I chickened out I lost like 50 cents. So then I started looking at places that did piercings- and I just didn’t like any of them- I am just thinking that unless it’s a hospital I really shouldn’t let anyone poke me with a needle. I live in a third world country. Plus I am kind of scared of getting AIDS and Hep C.
So then I remembered in my medical bag, I had some different gauged needles. So I went to the one place I knew would show me how to pierce my nose, youtube. After watching a couple videos, I realized that I didn’t know how to pierce my nose, I knew how not too- so I figured trial and error might not be so bad. Using some advice I got from my friend’s mom- I sterilized everything with listerine, used a couple of iodine pads, burned everything…which turned out not to be a great idea because it melted my nose ring stone… so not be deterred, I put the needle through and then I used a earring stud for a nose ring. I won’t lie, afterwards, I felt so accomplished.- and I don’t have to worry about crazy diseases or wasting money. So now to find a smaller pulli-
as a side note-mine didn’t look as bad as when I went with lady burgbacher- hers looked painful.. I wish I still had that picture
