Spontaneous is an interesting word, you see it was spontaneous but it had been planned for a long time.
Many years ago I looked at my friends tragus piercing and thought it looked cool, the idea has grown gradually until the end of last summer, I decided to have my tragus pierced at the same time as having my tattoo in February. It made sense since I would have to miss a couple of weeks of swimming with both.
But today I was in town with the girls - T and I had both run out of our Lush face washes (aqua marina for her and angels on bare skin for me). It did mean standing in a queue that snaked around the shop in an ever decreasing spiral filled with men who had come in gruffly saying “Get me a gift that costs about fifty quid,” to the ever smiling assistants.
We always have to spend large amounts of time in Waterstones as the girls sigh and gasp over all the books and this was when I had a brainwave. There is no swimming for two weeks because of The Christmas Holidays, now would be a very good time to get my ear broddled. I explained my plan to the girls, T took a few seconds to get used to the idea then we went. And I had it done.
But please, go back a page for loads of photos!
