I can't believe it's THURSDAY already... My favorite day of the week! It's time for The Tea, my (Alley's) pierced/modded vlog where we talk about body jewelry, piercings, tattoos, and being a pierced & fierce modified bae.
Has anyone else been having trouble staying motivated? With the current state of the world, sometimes something as simple (and necessary) as taking care of yourself can seem like a real hassle. WELL, NOT ANYMORE! This is self-care week for Alley, and I wanted to share some of the stuff I decided to do for myself in my quest for ultimate self-care.
- Hair appointment: I made an appointment with my hairdresser months ago and the time has finally come! I'm getting the green in my hair refreshed and a tiny little trim. I know I'm gonna feel like my best-self once my hair has been rejuvenated.
- Lash appointment: I'm feeling like the combo of refreshed hair and a lush new lash application is going to make me feel like myself again. I scheduled them both in the same week for a double confidence boost.
- Tattoo appointment: In case it isn't obvious already... I like tattoos. I'm really looking forward to a fresh new piece of art on my body. I'm getting a pepper shaker in honor of my grandpa - it's going to make me smile when I catch sight of it in the mirror for the next few months.
- Learned something new: I learned this week that not everyone has a "columella" - the little strip of skin that most septum piercings are located in. I work with body jewelry every day and I'm still learning new stuff... Which makes me smile!
Everyone's pain tolerance is different... Some people barely feel piercings at all, while other people might experience a large amount of discomfort. At the end of the day, it all comes down to each individual person and each piercing experience... But there is a generalized consensus about which piercings tend to be less painful and which tend to sting a little bit more. For this week's blog, we went through and picked some of the lease painful piercings to highlight for y'all. Maybe your pain tolerance is low... Or maybe you're just a piercing newbie not sure where to start. Either way, you know that being pierced is going to involve needles being pushed through your body! At least when you head out to the piercing studio next time, you'll know which piercings to get for a low-key and (hopefully) easy going experience. This week's blog is: What are the Least Painful Piercings? Check it out on the body jewelry blog now!
