Wow, this is very nice, very deep and meaningful. The quote is your description is very mysterious and profound, it adds depth instead ...

Here's what happened a little while ago:

Mama SBG: "I'd like to see the drawing you spent all night on." (This is the one of Ryuko and Satsuki from Kill la Kill called "I'm here. Right here.")
SBG: ":noes: NO!"
Mama SBG: "Come on!"
SBG: "NO! NO!"
Mama SBG: "Why not?"
SBG: "It has nudity."
Mama SBG: "I don't care! That's alright."
SBG: "It...alludes to...violence...if you know what I mean...Do you still want to see it?"
Mama SBG: "Yeah."

In short, she was insistent. Now, when I was 14, I got my ear cartilage pierced at the doctor. You have to leave the stud in for a year after you get your ear cartilage pierced, but the back of the earring got stuck to my ear, so I had it removed even though the hole would close. But then a few months ago (when the above happened), I really wanted it pierced again. So I told my mom that if she wanted to see it, I would have to have my ear cartilage safely pierced by then.

*Skip to the bottom (you'll see it in bold) if you don't want to read all of this nobody's gunna read it all*
I went to the doctor's a month later, but they weren't comfortable with piercing my ear cartilage, which led my mom to think it was bad for you because it goes through soft bone. But I really wanted it. My doctor said there were reputable places at the mall that pierced ears.
But then I found out that Claire's, where I went to have my earlobes pierced when I was 10, is actually really not a good place to go, especially for your ear cartilage. Someone who works there said once that you could get a skin tag from getting your ear cartilage pierced there. I saw online that they don't have professional piercers, just the people that work there, and they use dirty needles because there's no sanitation at all. Furthermore, the ear piercing gun itself is not the way to go because it causes blunt force trauma which can shatter your ear cartilage, and it's impossible to properly sanitize so it's always dirty with other people's blood, sweat, fluids, and skin cells on it. It's actually illegal in Canada.
My mom planned that tomorrow (yep, she's really dying to see the drawing) I could have my ear cartilage pierced at Piercing Pagoda because someone she knows gets all of her piercings there (she has multiple piercings) and has never had a problem. But then I looked online again and same deal - the deadly piercing gun, no professionals, crappy advice; the best way to go is a piercing parlor because it's completely sterile and they have professional piercers. My mom was like, "You know what, then look up 'piercing parlors in (my state)' online."
So I did :) I skipped the ones that said "Tattoo and Piercing Parlor" and I found a piercing parlor called Rockstar Body Piercing in a town near me that had this review:
"Great place, clean, sterile with knowledgeable piercers.
Being a nurse, cleanlinsess, sterility, knowledge of sterility, and ability are all very important to me. Over the past 8 years, my two daughters and myself have had Jeff do at least 7 or 8 piercings and we have never had any excessive pain, never any infection, and have all been very happy with all the piercings they have done. They really are RockStars!!"

So my mom called them, made an appointment for 4pm, and my ear cartilage will be pierced tomorrow! :D I'll upload a pic :dance:
They want my birth certificate because you have to be 13 to get an ear cartilage piercing.

I'm a dreamer and an artist just like all of you . . .

I have been drawing since I was six years old. I didn't think much of my drawings, but my classmates were stunned by them. I drew a pair of pink Converse sneakers when I was nine years old, and my mom was so amazed she got me to sign it and made copies of it to everyone she knew. Then she consigned me to a ton of art courses in drawing, painting, and a little of ceramics at Attleboro Art Museum in Rhode Island.
I've been doing art as my therapy and for pleasure since :)

I mostly do photography, anime art, fan art, realistic drawings, and literature. I have over 400 art pieces, I am the founder of Ran-maoFC and I update my journal entry every few days to weekly :)
