We’ve all gone through that stage where we swore to our parents we were going to get a bunch of piercings and tattoos once we reached 18. But if you’re like me, and are terrified of needles, you’ve probably chickened out and never followed through. But for her 19th birthday Bella Thorne decided to get a septum piercing, even though it did look rather painful.
Let me set the scene for you! In the beginning of the snapchat video (@bellathornedab) we can see Bella lying down on the table smiling, but then all of a sudden, without any warning, we see the silver needle go right through her nose. After watching her scream “Oh My God” and a tear stream down her face, I’m convinced that I will never get a piercing. But she pulls it off in her next snap proudly showing off the horse-shaped ring.
If you’re unfamiliar with the tattoo shop Bella tagged, it should definitely be on your radar! Body Electric Tattoo Shop is located in the heart of Los Angeles and is frequented by celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Rihanna and Beyonce. Also the Chief Piercing Officer has a killer story!
Brian Keith Thompson was a former marine and top network integration engineer for Nortel. After being released from prison, he turned to Body Electric to free himself of jailhouse tattoos. Six years later Brian now owns the shop.
“I made it a little more user friendly because the tattoo industry changed. I just brought a corporate side to it, really great customer service because I know what it’s like to be a client. It didn’t look like this before. I mean there are still a lot of things here that are key for nostalgia, but I just fine tuned everything. ”
So if you’re ever in Los Angeles and are braver than I am, you should hit up this shop! Who doesn’t love spending money at a shop with an owner that has a heart of gold.
