Hey everyone this is Violet, I recently have begun going out in feminine clothing and a full face of makeup. It has felt really good to be myself in public. I’m still misgendered pretty much by everyone, but my deep voice doesn’t do many any favors for me 😂. Anyways, I went and got my ears pierced recently; the experience was very exciting and the people there were very kind and accepting they called me by my preferred name and used the correct pronouns. I feel a little closer to being my true self even if it is just holes in my earlobes. ❤️😁

Congratulations. That's a huge step forward and I'm really happy for you :love: This misgendering will happen for quiet a time, but the longer you are on your way, the more you grow confident with yourself, the less it will become. Go girl!

Violet...congrads, it’s all first steps to much better ones. your doing great. I was scared to get mine done it turned out to be a whole bunch of nothing. @Ericamaev1 ....pain is very quick and over so fast. If you have ever gotten a shot of a blood draw you can do it. I do recommend going to a actual piercer to do it. Do use an actual needle which is easier more sanitary and better than the gun at those little pop-up earring stores. Cost is similar but they also have Sterilize equipment and can put in pure silver just in case your ear will have a reaction otherwise.
As long as you clean them and such your good. Earrings make you feel so much better.

Hugs

I'm still so scared to do it. How much did hurt ?
The anticipation of the pain was way worse than the pain itself. The pain was just like a needle poked me, and before I knew it, it was over and the retainer stud was in my ear lobes.

Nicole, I would want to differ, I have tattoos and I have my ears pierced. Nothing can be as fast and precise as one of those guns (that's why we use similar guns for some surgical procedures). Wiping them clean and dipping them into alcohol sterilizes those instruments pretty well, way better than a poorly maintained sterilizer in a piercing shop.
However, I would go into a real shop (and did this), not just to a stand in a mall.

What tattoo piercing shop you go to? Everyone I know of is extremely sterilized beyond the normal limits. Where those little pop-up earring shops have some teenager with a gun, where she hopes she got it right. I go to professionals every time. My daughter got hers done when she was younger at a earring shop, they were uneven and got infected. Maybe things are more sterile in Texas. The guy who did mine could not have been nicer..

I go to the tattoo shop in Fort Myers that has the best reputation, my speciality is infection control stuff, I know what to look for. But I had my ears done at a jewelry store by, what seems to me, a professional person. I had no infections (but that depends a lot on the aftercare one does).

Congrats, @Violet . Start practicing voice training exercises as soon as possible. You can have good results relatively quickly and have the most difficult part of transitioning out of the way

I am ready to help you all out. You just have to agree on a date and time, and I will be ready to start with a workshop.
