When I pierced my lip I didn’t do it to impress or attract anyone, I did it because when I look at my face even with make up on it is incomplete to me. I have a mental picture of myself and what I see there is not what I see in the mirror, it’s not a true reflection of myself. No, I’m not ugly, but I wasn’t expressing myself the way I truly wanted to; makeup is not my preferred medium, I like body jewelry.
Who knew that with just one piece of jewelry strategically selected and placed my confidence would leap. Ok maybe that combined with losing a little weight in my face, but seriously I noticed that I’m not shying away from people as much. It’s weird because “it’s just jewelry.” It doesn’t make me tougher, harder, scarier…it doesn’t really change me, it simply makes me more comfortable. I know it adds to my beauty and can even seduce a guy from across the room just watching me work it with my mouth, but it’s just an accessory, an extension of me.
Yay, I finally got to add a new piercing! I know you can’t tell from the pic but it’s a black heart with multi colour jewel…too cute IMO.
This little booger gave me a hard time, but I persisted and finally it all came together. Ok so it was partially my fault for buying needles from a new source and not realizing that the stud wouldn’t fit into the end to guide it through… I ended up putting the needle through twice, leaving it in my lip for 20 mins the 2nd time to make sure the front hole stayed open this time. It worked and boom, I’m loving it. I was going to do a hoop in my lip on the opposite side, but because I struggled with the labret stud I decided I will order a new needle next month that will guide the hoop in. Hey, it will give me time to for the swelling to go down.
This will be my first permanent lip piercing, when I was younger I could never let my lip heal. My mom was not a fan of facial piercings so as a teen every piercing was fresh and removed before I entered the house. Heck, at some point I just started using a safety pin them fastening it and rocking that over the weekend.
I’m tired of hiding my art, my vision, in not working right now so why not act while I have time to heal. Piercings are beautiful. I am beautiful.
More piercings to come.
I don’t know who to credit for the pic or meme but yummm, just what I want to wake up to everyday! Is there anything sexier than tats and piercings?
It’s been a few days since I’ve posted, but I have a good reason…WordPress pissed me off with that tag/newsfeed issue. Still no idea what caused it, but whatever.
So how’s my week been? It’s been great! The no car and having to bus thing is truly a blessing. My son comes home with tales from his adventures and riding together is giving us lots of bonding time and time to converse. He really is growing up. It’s also saving me a ton of money so I was able to pay half of our past due electric bill yesterday! Aside from all of that I’m really enjoying the walking and exercise I’m getting. We actually choose to walk and talk instead of going a bus a few blocks. Overall, I’m happy.
I’m very excited, my missing labret stud finally got here yesterday, way late but it’s here! Well now you know what I will be doing in a bit. I’m so excited, I’ve been waiting too long for this. Ok stay tuned for pics!!
I’m in desperate need of a DIY, natural make up remover (including eyes). If you have a tried and true recipe then please share it in the comments.
The wait is killing me!! I ordered this labret on the 10th at the same time I ordered piercing needles and a nose ring. I received everything but this new stuff on Monday. Monday! I hope it gets here earlier tomorrow. Anyone know a good “get here” dance?
Good morning world!
I’m not sure how I managed it, but I actually got a comfy sleep last night and, thanks to daylight savings, awoke at 8:30. It’s a miracle 😉
Talked to the repair shop already, they said it’s the timing belt so now I wait for the estimate. My dear, sweet punk _ 14 year old who was awake before me is now sleeping. 😦 He has a lot of buses to hop to get to his class today, this will be fun.
On the bright side, I got my piercing supplies in the other day!! I’m just waiting for 1 piece of jewelry then I can get to it. I can’t wait, it’s taking too long!! Jewelry is like make up, it just accentuates your beauty…but it doesn’t taste nasty when kissing 🙂
Hmm, it’s sunny, I’m up, and I have nowhere to be today I think I will throw open windows and start sorting and packing. What do you do on your days off?
Time to wake the beast. Enjoy your day!!
