One week later . . .

The chest anchor (aka microdermal, cleavage single point piercing) is being very calm.  I hardly know it’s there. It’s crusting some, but not too bad–yet.   It’s kind of an odd place for a piece of jewelry, and I’m kind of getting used to it.  I’m still not sure whether I need to hide it for work, or just ignore it or pretend it’s a stick on gem or something.

The nipple piercing, on the other hand–

BAR TOO SHORT!

I’ll have to return to ABQ to see Noah as soon as possible to get it changed out.  The balls are sinking in to the nipple, which is not good.  (In Noah’s words, “bummer.”) I was keeping an eye on it, because I thought it might just be swelling, but–it’s definitely too short.

Sometimes there’s a bit of trial and error involved in getting the right fit for jewelry, and you never know how your body will react, either.  So I’m concentrating on keeping it clean and happy until I can get it changed out.


Chesty!

Tonight I am the proud owner of a brand new 8 gauge horizontal nipple piercing;

AND

a pretty faux-opal chest surface anchor.  Woo!!

Beautiful Daughter No. 1 got a Monroe.

More details later–sorry, no profile this week.  I’m tired tonight, but tomorrow will have a full write up of the piercing.

That brings the total number of my current piercings to 13.

But who’s counting!
