Should I get my nipple pierced?

I have pierced my nipples to feel better about my breasts which are getting smaller

Separations suck. The road from “in a relationship” to “single” is long, paved with screaming spikes, unwavering Facebook photos and explaining to everyone that you are now flying alone. My last bad breakup happened in college. It had all of the usual side effects of misery, and I wasn't expecting: I had lost my appetite for months. I didn't starve to death with my wonderful friends bringing food to my dorm and dragging me to the dining room - but I picked up and came out on the other side of my grief with a closet full of bras that didn't fit. Suddenly I was faced with a constant reminder of how bad my breakup had been, thanks to an unknown pair of breasts, two cup sizes smaller than what I had previously had.

I could handle the fact that my breasts were smaller. Bra technology is so advanced that you can enjoy the benefits of cleavage, if that's your thing, with almost any cup size. For me, switching from a D cup to a B cup wasn't a big deal. What was a big deal to me was the unexpected breast-to-breast ratio I was faced with while undressing. It wasn't that I was worried someone would see my small breasts and scream, "Wow, that's a lot of nipples!" (I was raised to believe that anyone who sees me naked is privileged; those who don't like it can lose my number.) It's easy to tell another person that they care about their negative opinions about their body should keep. It's a whole different ball game when the criticism comes from your own head.

The way it is, I've always been scared of nipples. While newer sex and body positivity moves include nipples of all sizes, shapes, and colors, none had reached my high school by the time I reached the sexual activity scene. I wanted light pink, perky, symmetrical nipples, but to paraphrase Reza Farahan Shahs of the sunset (I love this show fight me), “Ethnic nipples are brown. Handle it! "

“It's easy to tell another person to keep their negative opinions about your body to themselves. It's a very different ball game when the criticism comes from your own head. "

I'm ethnic, my nipples aren't pink, and I've learned how to use them. At least I thought I had learned to deal with it. Facing new, smaller tits and more nipples brought my old self-image problems back to the surface. I didn't like my breasts anymore and my body didn't feel good. So I decided, in my own words, “jazz my boobs up” with a little bling.

At the time I had my tongue, belly button, lip, septum, and wrists - yes, I had a dermal piercing phase, looking back now by personal preference, it was terrible - all pierced. It wasn't a big deal to include my nipples in the lineup, and in fact, the whole ordeal only lasted about five minutes. The worst part, as with most body piercings, was the light, tight pinch when changing the needle for starter jewelry. On the pain scale, the process adds up to 6 out of 10 - more than my nose but less than my tongue - and it was easy to maintain while healing. What impressed me most about the whole experience wasn't how much it hurt, but what an instant and intense confidence boost I felt. Before I could turn off the dumbbells, I was more at peace with my body. I felt like a badass with permanent flare, B cup bra, damn it.

"My newly tricked nipples represented a positive change for my life and my body, whatever I choose."

The change in my confidence was so dramatic that I wondered how much of it came from the piercings - after all, I didn't show it to all of my friends like when I stuck my tongue - and how much of it came from a lost one To regain part of me. Getting my nipples pierced was a way to take control of a body that had undergone a major change without my permission. Don't get me wrong, my 34D to 34B bra size is not on the list of things to blame my college ex boyfriend. Nobody made me feel sorry for myself and eat for a semester. In the end, the responsibility for the weight I lost rests firmly on my shoulders. At the same time that just Part of my body that really changed was my breasts, which made it difficult to separate, how they looked, what my separation felt like. My newly tricked nipples represented a positive change in my life and my body, whatever I choose.

Of all my piercings, the dumbbells in my nipples meant the most to me, despite saying goodbye to them a few years ago. I didn't feel like I had outgrown them, but over time they got more irritating than anything. Over the years I had learned that one of the best small breasted parts is bustless, and I was tired of my dumbbells tearing and ruining the lines of my dresses and t-shirts.

With no bling, my nipples still retain their topographical majority over my breasts, but I don't mind anymore. And when I think of how heavy those piercings made me feel, I realize that it was never about impressing other people. I had my nipples pierced for me and myself. The more time I spent feeling good about myself and the more time I needed to nurture that feeling, the less I needed other things outside of myself to feel like a badass. But I'm glad I got my nipples pierced when my breasts got smaller just because it gave me two more reasons to be proud of this wonderful body.
