B*dazzle - Painless and Sterile Piercing
Piercings are versatile statement pieces. They look good and allow you to change up your look and practice self-expression just by switching a few jewellery pieces but if you have a low pain tolerance like me, then you might have a love-hate relationship with piercings. No matter how good they look, the thought of having a needle go through my ear and leaving a gaping hole scares me. Not to mention, how painful would the experience be? The expectation and anticipation leading up to the moment the needle goes through your ear can be excruciating. When you think it's all over, you have to consider the after care. Will it lead to an infection? Will you be unable to sleep on one side for at least a month? I think visiting a sterile and credible piercing salon is the first thing you should make sure of, and one location you can visit for a painless and sterile piercing is B*dazzle!
B*dazzle specialises in ear piercing service and retails nickel free jewellery for sensitive skin, which I really appreciate. You see, cheap jewellery can cause allergic reactions and increase your chances of getting an infection and having to get your earhole closed back up. You would've then endured the pain for nothing! Furthermore, B*dazzle strictly uses disposable ear piercing cartridge systems suitable for one-time use only, that complies with international health standards. The staff in B*dazzle are also specially trained to give jewellery advice based on face shape and carry out the piercing procedure safely and efficiently! It is simply all you could ask for in a piercing salon.
B*dazzle's Raffles City outlet is an unassuming looking jewellery shop but the moment you enter and peer closer, you will definitely find hidden gems that suit you. When I entered to get my piercing done, I admit I was skeptical it would be painless. After all, a needle is entering your skin, there definitely has to be some degree of pain. I took my time coming here and almost backed out but I steeled myself and put my fate in the hands of my trusty piercer at B*dazzle. I told her what kind of piercing I wanted and she reassured me to take my time to decide exactly where I wanted my piercing to be. She was patient and understanding throughout my indecisiveness.
When I finally decided where I wanted it to be, she marked it carefully and prepared the disposable ear piercer. She swabbed my ear gently with alcohol swabs and just did it. I was shocked because I expected worst when really it was just over like that. I had been to previous piercing places to do my piercings, so I had a general idea of how it was supposed to be like and my experience at B*dazzle was nothing like that. It was truly as painless as it could be, and now I have a beautiful helix piercing that I can't wait to accessorise with.
After that, I went around the place to find an earring that I would be able to wear when it's healed. I didn't do it alone though! When I needed help, my piercer actually told me that since I had a slightly sharper chin, I should try a hooped helix piercing. I picked a metal one that was versatile and wearable for everyday use. While I loved my new earring, I can't get over my painless (and sterile!) piercing experience. When I find more piercing inspirations, I might just come back!
