Yesterday I went into town with the quest to get a piercing, this one in particular is apparently great for migraine suffers.. and being one.. I wanted to get it.
My husband is a cynic when it comes to these kind of things and thinks they are a bit silly.. but when you get to a point during a migraine that nothing works.. you start looking in other areas!
A friend of mine had shared information about it and I have to admit, I did think it might just be a bit of witchcraft behind it all, but it’s more of acupuncture than anything…
The body is made up of pressure points, stimulating one could in theory help with pains in another and after much research, much thought and plenty of ‘im scared of the pain’ I decided to just say sod it..
And do it!
I almost chickened out of getting it as the place I had originally wanted to get it done wasn’t open at the time.. and my town has two local tattoo and piercing places so I simple went to the other one..
I went to Custom Ink, who came across really friendly and welcoming and I honestly can’t thank them enough for not only doing it but keeping me relaxed during the piercing.
It did hurt, but it’s hard to explain because I had this image in my head that it would’ve hurt a lot more than I expected, of course it was going to hurt I had a needle poked through cartilage.. but it was only a brief pinch sensation and it was over!
My verdict so far? I actually love how it looks, I have yet to suffer from a migraine but some form of pressure did release when the piercing went in, I felt sort of clear headed for a change hah.
Until next time
