I have a LOVE/HATE Relationship with my Nose! Read how my new friend Bob helped me Love it for real!
Some wish for beautiful glowing skin so they treat themselves to an intense facial or even laser, others want a better body so a better eating plan and exercise or even lipo can help them achieve their goal.
Personally, I’ve always had a complex with my most prominent feature on my face, my ethnic Middle Eastern NOSE!
As a child, I always HATED it… why god, why!!! I always looked people head on so they didn’t see the profile of my long nose
As I got older, I noticed that people actually found my nose some what attractive, even my own brothers! And my brothers are always up front with me. If I needed to lose weight or fix my hair, they would always be the first to call me out on it.
I’ve been going back and forth the last few years about my pinocchio nose, and even visited a few plastic surgeons to discuss the procedure. Every time I sat in the consultation room, I had little panic attacks and questions ran through my head “Do I really hate my nose? Will I look like a different person?”
So, after the last panic attack at the doc’s office, I decided that I was going to give up on this idea of a rhinoplasty and embrace what my mama gave me!
To fully embrace my nose, I decided to get my nose pierced with a cute little stud!!! No more running away from it!
I was in Chicago a few weeks ago for business and was having dinner with my beautiful California Girl Andreana. It was our last night and after an amazing meal, we started discussing piercings. We both pulled out our phones and started searching for tattoo and piercing shops and reading the reviews. After searching and calling around, we decided on INSIGHT STUDIOS.
We paid our bill, hailed a cab and arrived at the location. The place looked gorgeous!!! The interior was bright white and looked super clean. A cute young guy started walking towards us and introduced himself as BOB.
According to the reviews, BOB was the man! Everyone loved him and raved about how great of a painless piercer her was.
Bob had us fill some paperwork and waived us to follow him in the back room where all his scary piercing gadgets were.
OK… now, I was freaking out a little bit inside. I told Andreana that I had to go first, because if I watched her, I might run out the door! So, I laid on his cute little chair and closed my eyes while Andreana held my hand and rubbed my arms me to calm down my heart rate. OMG.. I’m such a wuss!
“Bob, please don’t narrate this procedure. I’m closing my eyes, and I just want you to do your thing please ” Ha ha ha… NOT! Oh boy…
1…2…. 3…. and there it was … a cute little stud on my cute big nose!
Tears ran down from my right eye on to my cheek. Bob quickly grabbed the cutip and swirled it around to catch the tears and fixed my smeared makeup. Turned out, Bob went to cosmetology school too! Awesome! I would have never guessed that!
Now it was Andreana’s turn! She was so calm and took it like a champ! Her nose ring looked so beautiful on her face. She said mine looked cute too, but I had to get used to it for myself.
Bob walked us to the front and gave us some organic cleanser and spray to maintain our piercings and prevent infection.
Bob was sooo sweet that he gave us both a discount for coming together and even made a call to a good friend that owned a popular bar near by and told him that we were coming by and to take care of us.
We love you Bob!
I looked at Andreana and said, “next trip, we’re getting tattoos!”
Since the piercing, I only had one day of soreness but it wasn’t bad at all. I didn’t even experience redness or irritation. The only bad thing was that I kept forgetting I had a nose stud and almost yanked it out a few times… ouch..well, not really, it wasn’t even that bad when I yanked it.
If you’re ever in the Chicago area, and in need of a piercing or two, I highly suggest Insight Studio for tattooing and piercings. Tell them Ghada of Smallworld Beauty Referred you!
