nampo dong

anonymous asked:

So. I was on vacation at Busan and took a bus from Haeundae beach to Nampo-dong. On my way to Nampo I was looking out of window on my left and I saw a quite big 'Healing hands' sign. Idk why I'm telling this but anyways it made me smile stupidly and think Aquiver and how I should read all the chapters again. ^^ Thank you for writing such captivating stories, you're amazing and I wish all the best to you!

legit?? :o maybe my work of fiction is a reality somewhere….but really, i guess healing hands could be a very popular name for a massage parlour haha. bUT thank you so much :’) it means a lot !! ily !! 

my new piercing.

so, i got my first cartilage piercing last weekend.  hoorayyyy!~~  

i went to this new place in 남포 that popped up in the last few months, but it seems like a lot of lil piercing shops are popping up everywhere lately.  i’ve been wanting cartilage piercings for a long time, prolly since i first saw Jane in Daria, so i’ve finally decided to stop being a baby and do it already.  eventually i want 3 on each side, but we’ll see how that goes.  cartilage takes forever to heal so i may get tired of dealing with them, although after i learn how to handle healing up this one i think i’ll get them done 2 at a time in the future.

we went to another place that @theflyingnah got pierced at and liked, but it was closed, so we ended up going to 장신구/Jangshingu [but  the sign just says 피어싱].

i was a bit skeptical about this place, because i had been in once before a while back to check it out and the chick at the counter seemed a bit bougie.  this time, there was a different girl there and she seemed more actively helpful and i found an earring i liked, so i decided to get it done there.  she drew several dots on my ear and she suggested several other placements that would be more easily visible or look cool, but i told her i just wanted it where i indicated.  she wiped off the other dots with a cotton pad that was soaked in something, but she didn’t clean the piercing site.  she had a needle and not a gun [do not get your cartilage pierced with a piercing gun!] and she did sterilize the needle beforehand although she didn’t wear gloves.  i was going to ask her if i’d be allowed to record it but she pierced it really fast before i could even ask.

the pain wasn’t bad at all, and it was quick.  @bellabluesuju had the presence of mind to remind me to ask about cleansing solution.  the clerk said that i’d have to go to the 약국 and get some alcohol to put on it, which all of us were side-eyeing.  i asked her about using salt and warm water to clean it, but since i didn’t know how to say ‘sea salt’ in Korean i just said 소금.  i assumed she would either correct me and say ‘sea salt’ in Korean, or ask me what i meant, but instead she starting ranting about how i shouldn’t soak it in table salt and water and how that’s a horrible idea.  i tried to chime in and clarify what i meant but she went on and on.  i turned to my girl Lola Bunny [who’s Korean] and told her i meant to say sea salt but i didn’t know the Korean word for it, but she said the chick misunderstood me and to just ignore her rant.  feeling like she was not someone i would get any useful aftercare info from, i paid and we peaced out.  getting the piercing and the earring cost 17,000 or 18,000 won total. 

i checked online later and confirmed that you should never put alcohol on your new cartilage piercing [or any fresh piercing for that matter i would think], confirming that the woman at that store isn’t a professional piercer who knows what they’re doing.  i’ll have to find a different place for the others, and i think i know just the place.  

based on another recommendation by a friend, Bella and i checked out this third piercing place in 남포 yesterday called Na & Na, and it definitely seemed way better than 장신구.  the 이모 at Na & Na checked the ring i was pierced with and said it’s cheap and will tarnish, aggravating the healing process.  that’s something that happened to Bella before, after her piercer reassured her that it was surgical steel.  i was annoyed because i asked the girl beforehand at 장신구 if the metal was surgical steel/safe for piercing and she said yes.  the woman at this new place said if i come back in 2~3 weeks later after it heals up a bit, she’ll change it to silver or gold for me.  i’ll take pictures when i do go back and let you know how it goes, but considering the Na & Na 이모 was a nurse for 10 years i think that place is super legit.  

i’ll keep you guys posted♥︎


**EDIT: i found out that the place i went to for my cartilage piercing is 장신구, not 피어싱.  i’m not sure why that name is only on the bottom of the door, but anyways i’ve switched out the names and adjusted the post accordingly~
