‘Twas the Night Before Piercing . . .

December 19, 2008

and I’m caught up in my pre-piercing ritual.

Clean: disinfect services, sinks, bathrooms, doorknobs, light switches; make sure I have clean towels, sheets, extra clean pillowcases

Gather supplies: soap, paper towels, bandages, salt and herbs for soaking

Prepare: Research likely piercings; perform a little extra grooming, make sure I get enough rest–and don’t dwell on the pain!
