Guess who got a new hole in their face! (Hint: me!)
This is the first in a series of at least three piercings down my axis. I am also planning on a labret or lip ring, done in a ritual setting. The third may be a naval piercing.
Others being considered are bilateral nostil piercings (with studs) and maybe, (MAYBE, VERY MAYBE) a Christina. Maybe. I’m also still debating on re-doing my nipples on a an angle. I think I may have found a good local piercer! (Though the nipples….this was round two for lefty and three for righty)
My ears, i had dermal punched and plan to continue stretching, once I have finished massaging the scars away. They were done to ‘hear’ better.
This one, the septum was done for several reasons.
The smallest was to ‘smell’ better, (much in the way my ears were set on the path to stretching so that I could ‘hear’ better). I tend to refer to my esoteric experiences via smell and taste (ex, ‘i know ravens hang out in this part of town, but these were acting funny and tasted like Odin’). I have a very strong sense of smell in general, and am very scent specific/scent oriented. I think its the cat in me.
Clairescence is something I experience as well - both receiving scents that are not there, and having scents spark experiences for me. I really enjoy scented candles, incense, oils, etc. I also like people’s smells - how my partner’s smell is important. The people smell, not the I scrubbed down and put on deodorant smell. (I kind of have an armpit thing, especially on men. Unf. The FS smelled AMAZING. He used to skip working out on the day’s he’d see me, and then realized that as long as he didn’t show up with a wet shirt, I was a happy Wendy.)
Anyway. I digress. Smells are important to me, and are a significant part of my practice.
Following my nose, sniffing things out.
It is also a reminder to myself that She leads, that She’s got me by the nose. Or really, as a sign that I try harder to follow better. Its…complicated to explain and really not going to make sense to anyone else anyway.
Plus, I think She likes the way it looks. I get an approving feel from her surrounding my modifications, and I’m way behind on my plans. My STBX husband really didn’t like them. I had two tattoos when we met and the ears were the only current piercings. I picked up three more little tattoos while we were married, but not the ones I really wanted. We never had the money. Plus, he made it clear he disliked them. Flat out told me that he’d no longer be attracted to me if i had facial piercings. That was a real hard line for him with girls.)
So I spent five years not getting my modifications. Upside, they will even better now, since I’ve had more time to muse on them. Upside to not eating much, or doing much, while healing means that I’ll be able to save sooner for the first round as well. Need so do a little research on the one last little bump, but that should be it. Mmm….tattoos….
Now, is She pleased because She likes modifications? Or is She pleased because I’m finally doing what *I* want, and what *I* need, not what someone else wanted. And I didn’t really realize how much of what I didn’t do was because of what my ex(s) did or didn’t like. Ew. Fuck those guys.
