HNT: Stick me, baby....

I'm sporting some new bling for this week's HNT. The girls and I had a wonderful night out and my new nose ring is the result of said good time.

We went out first for the most amazing dinner I've ever had in my life. Indian food at the Clay Pit in Addison. I didn't realize we were so close to my very favoritist tattoo and body piercing shop, CAT Tattoo, until I saw the sign. We had discussed, earlier in the evening, Brandy's trip to get a tat next weekend, and I mentioned my desire to possibly get a nose ring. If you've known me for more than an hour and a half you'll know I like piercings and have had my tongue and eyebrow pierced before. I think nose rings are cute, and it's been a good six years since I had a piercing, so I figured it was time. And it was only $25. If I don't like it, I've simply lost out on the amount of money it would take to get an oil change.

My first two piercings did not hurt. Tongue..nothin'. Eyebrow...nothing. This little bitch...hurt like a motherfucker. Not the actual needle through the nose, but getting the stud in. Holy shit. Made me tear up like a pansy on parade. But I survived and I love my new bling.

And, no, it doesn't hurt to blow my nose or sneeze. I've done both tonight several times.

Next up: red hair.


  1. Looks great on you... I love it!

  2. Thank you!!! I love it (until I get it caught on something).

  3. Very hot! Does the snot get hung up on it? Do you want to constantly pick your nose? Can you tell that I'm on a mucus thing here since I'm sick? I apologize.

    Nice bling you got going there, in that small, side-of-the-nose way!

  4. Nice photo Happy HNT.
    I would guess that hurst wait till you get a cold and blow that across the room, it will be like a red rider beebee gun.

  5. i miss my nose ring.. =( it looks great on u! my worst piercing was my belly button...ouuuuccchhh! i had my nose done 3 different times. HHNT =)

  6. I love it!
    I wanted to get my eyebrow pierced several years back, but my job said no.

  7. But the pain was so worth the look wasn't it? I am way too much a baby to ever do something like that.

    Happy HNT.

  8. Os,
    Thank you! The snot doesn't get hung up tooo bad (q-tips are my best friend right now, though), and I do feel a bit like picking all the time. But it hurts. So that stops me dead in my tracks.

    Hope you're feeling better soon!

  9. Thanks, Wenchy!

    Lance, this baby isn't going anywhere. It's corkscrewed into my nose.

    Libra, I'm surprised your belly button was the worst! Ever had nipple piercings?? My friend in high school who got me into all this had his done and that one almost made him throw up.

    Well, I'm not sure how my job is going to take it, but once this little bizzle is healed I can get a spacer and it won't be a problem. We'll see. Academics are nutty, so I don't think it'll matter. If it does, I'll go back to the art dept. Whaahahahha!

    The pain was very worth it! That's one of the reasons I like piercings...makes me feel like a badass when everyone says, "Ohmagod, I never could've done that!" So, thanks for giving me my first fix of badassness for the day!

  10. You wear the bling well. Very well.

    I give it to ya... tattoo me for hours just don't touch my nose or isntant wimp.

    Happy HNT lovely Andi :)

  11. very nice....

    my tongue piercing didnt hurt much at all...

  12. Oh my god. I love Indian food too the best. Anyeay back to the point, I got my nose pierced at 40 on a whim. i thought it would be like piercing my ears, la di da. I almost passed out, first from the needle, second from the ring going in. He said he wouldn't pierce with a stud since a ring is better for healing. So for a month I had this huge ring sticking out of my nose. Charming.

    I love it now though I continually lose nose rings.

    I love yours too. It looks great on you.

  13. OUCH!!! My belly and my ears are pierced...think that's gonna be it for me!

    Happy HNT! :)

  14. Oh man... I wish I could have done it for you!

    Look at you!!!
    It looks very natural on you and the placement is perfect!
    It looks like they did a good job! (other than having to wrestle the jewelry in... that part is tricky and different on everyone!)

  15. Congrats on the new Bling. It looks wonderful.

    Happy HNT!

  16. *sniff* I miss my nose ring SO BAD. I got mine pierced in Amsterdam. The piercing was the worst few seconds of pain in my whole life. Even compared to two tattoos, breastfeeding and child birth. I had to remove mine for my job. Yours looks gorgeous. Congrats!

  17. Sexy! But ouch! I had a belly button ring and I really miss it, but it had to go :( maybe after I'm done having babies...

  18. awesome! That looks just like my nose ring! Once I caught my nose ring on Alex's hairy chest. that fucker hurt. I'm getting my eyebrow done soon (I hope). A friend of mine tried to pierce my tongue when I was 18 and it ripped. I have this big scar down the middle of tongue.

  19. really digging the nose ring on you! It looks great, even if you did tear up like a little bitch! JUST KIDDING! Happy HNT Andi!

  20. Thank you, Kalani!

    Steph, mine didn't either. It was the least painful of all my piercings. The swelling the days after was a bitch, though.

    Tess, thanks a bunch! I had a barbell in my eyebrow when I got it pierced and my piercer wasn't happy about it, but I won. I just couldn't handle a ring to start. lol Good for you for whimming it!

    LOL, MamaK!

    Addict, always glad to have your seal of approval! I wish you could've done it, too, but this shop is my second choice after yours. :) As for the stud...I'll probably never get this effer out on my own. I'll be the only person in existence that has to go back to the shop to get it changed out. Ha!

  21. Leesa, Andy, and Horsnsnsns, thanks!

    Sam, don't say you had to take it out for work!!! I'm really hoping that doesn't become an issue before it's healed. I'll just have to wear a bandaid on my nose.

    Heather, at least you didn't have a tat of a worm around your belly button. A friend of mine had a worm before the pregnancy and a python afterwards.

    Amanda, the torn tongue story was the ultimate in ass-twitchery. I would've died. I must see pics if you get your eyebrow done! I miss mine sooo much!

    Funkay, that's just mean! LOL

  22. omg ...serves nosey ( heh ) me right for wandering on in to read the full scoop on the nose pimple that YOU PAID for

    ok so its cute..... now im goin back to my generation... safe days you *

  23. I love it.

    Nipple rings hurt like a mofo too.

  24. I love it, looks so cute! Happy New Year and Happy HNT!

  25. LOL, finder! Now see why I didn't urge you to check out the blog?
