So I got my nose pierced. Something I wanted to do for a very long time.. and was petrified to do it. I am very sensitive to pain and things like tattoos and piercings become a big deal to get done. My research started with asking around some people that I know and then looking online for tattoo and piercing in gurgaon or delhi. I called a few places, looked for online reviews – which there weren’t many of, and settled (much by way of following my intuition) for Funky Monkey Tattoo Studio, at DLF city centre, Gurgaon.
We arrived at this funky looking studio which to my comfort, was playing loud trance / house mix sort of music. Great, I thought, almost exactly like I’m in thailand somewhere!! (minus the thailand stuff – like vodkas with redbull in buckets!!)
It wasn’t fuss free and the guys seemed to be very amused by my many antics.
I used a yellow colour stone set in sterling silver for the piercing. They don’t use the gun, instead they do it directly with the stud. It’s safer that way, they say.
I didn’t die of pain, though it did hurt a bit. They asked me to keep it dry and see them after 10-15 days if i want to change into a new nose stud. So far so good. I would rate the service great and the place seemed clean and nice. In the end, I’m just glad I got it done! Although when I pointed it out to a friend, she said ‘oh, but didn’t you always have one!?’ 😀
