You know that feeling when you take a bath and you prepare to lean your back against the cold tub. It won't hurt you and it will only last a second but it still isn't any fun.
Getting a piercing is kind of like that except the tub gives you a warning then comes to meet your back. You don't have to force yourself to lean into it, you just let the cold tub do its work. Once those nerves realize they aren't in danger you can relax and enjoy a book or write a blog. I have a water resistant phone so I am doing the latter.
Planning started a month ago to contact a piercing artist willing to install a Nd magnet under the skin of the left ring finger. A the forums of bodyartforms.com a user mentioned the artist who implanted her magnet in St Cloud Minnesota. Shane at Wingnut tattoo & Body Piercing ordered a Steve Haworth magnet and agreed to install it for $200.
The magnet was installed successfully.
Stitches in my finger
A blackout occurred after the procedure and five stitches were used to close a facial injury sustained against a tile floor.
