Finally got it pierced! I went to a reputable tattoo parlor and I was very well taken care of. It actually hurt a lot while the piercing was being done (with a needle) and afterwards for about two days but I love it so much I didn’t even care! I guess since I had waited so long to do it I really knew it was something I sincerely wanted. I have had it now for about a month and I think it is almost completely healed! I can sleep on it and everything!
Thanks for the advice everyone!
