For my birthday yesterday, I was already able to cross one thing off my List!
We all loaded up and headed down to the local tattoo shop/piercing parlor. Somehow that doesn’t seem right. Meh. Sometimes “right” doesn’t matter. Summer wanted to be pierced. I wanted to be pierced. So there we were.
Mama went first. Clamps on the nose, flare it out, DEEP breath in and…..
PHEW, the needle’s through! (It was a beautiful sunny day but that intense Sun through the window on my face was unfortunate………)
And oh yes, it did hurt! I’m no pain junkie, but I do LOVE the results!
Then it was the girl’s turn. She was waiting with anxious excitement!
Time for her to get the clamps….
Deep breath and DONE! There was a brief smile of relief as the needles still dangled from her earlobes. Then the artist gave her permission to cry if it hurt. And those tears started rollin’!
It didn’t take long though, and she was happy as could be. With the help of some sugar and some sparkly gems in her ears!
And here’s my girl entering into her first contract: “Yes, I’m happy with the work I had done at Forever Art…..” Aw!
