Anonymous said: I'm reallllly wanting to get my nipples pierced but I have very low self esteem. Any ideas to help me grow the balls to do it? I feel like if I got them done I wouldn't be as shy about my boobs.
Take control over your body and making changes to it to see yourself on the outside the same as you are on the inside is a very powerful thing! Many people are self conscience of their breasts (all genders) and often times getting their nipples pierced can really change it around for them. It did for me.
On “getting the balls” to do it. Honestly, there’s nothing wrong with being scared or nervous; that’s part of life, but after you do it you’ll appreciate the process that much more and it’ll show you how strong you are to be able to overcome your brain. Finding a reputable piercer is going to be the first step, not only because of the good practices and quality jewelry but you want someone with a good bedside manner. A respectable piercer isn’t there to judge you, a respectable piercer is doing their job and what they love to do and helping you have the best expierence possible. If you go into a studio and you feel uncomfortable you have every right to walk out; find the one that makes you feel comfortable.
