Thread: Nerves!

  1. #1

    Default Nerves!

    I had my lobes pierced 6 years ago and haven't had any piercings since.
    i really want my nose pierced, I've been 3 times and chickened out every time!
    the main issue is I don't know what I'm scared of! The piercer is lovely, I don't care about pain, the on,y thing I can think of is I'm subconsciously worried about fainting as I fainted last year during a blood test.
    any advice on overcoming these nerves?

    Make sure you eat something before you go in and remember to breath during the process and you'll be fine. Also tell the piercer you are afraid of fainting (they'll have heard it before).

    I couldn't even get in the shop this time, even though it's something I really want done, I'm wondering if I should get my second lobes or helix done first, i might find it easier to go for an ear piercing as it's something I've done before

    I feel for you, I am exactly the same when it comes to blood tests because I passed out during my first one. I find it helps if I drink plenty of water and have a little something to eat, even if it is just a banana. If possible, if there is a fan available I think that also helps as it keeps you cool. And since I am so talkative I find that that helps too as you can be so busy talking that you are more focused on what you are saying/talking about rather than sitting in dead silence bracing yourself for the pain. I would also say lying down helps but I guess depending on what you are having pierced lying down might not be possible. Good luck!

    Eat before hand, and remember the pain will only last a few seconds! I always tell myself that 8 hours from now, you are laying in bed or doing something else, so just do it and you'll be happy

    When I had my first piercing done (my industrial) I had the same problem. Make sure you eat first and if you tell the piercer that your worried you might faint they should let you lie down. Don't look when your being pierced and if you feel a little dizzy afterwards stay laying down/sitting until your ready.
