Although stories of various bodily piercings gone wrong are a dime a dozen, Chrissy Teigen decided to take to social media to share why her experience with a botched nose piercing was particularly harrowing.
On Monday, December 28, the star took to Twitter to discuss how her simple wish for a nose piercing while on vacation with her family in the tropical paradise of St. Barts unexpectedly went terribly wrong, and what she did to address the issue after it occurred.
The model shared a photo that depicted a side profile of her newly-pierced nose, but accompanied it with a disclaimer regarding what actually occurred following the piercing being done.
“So I did this today and it immediately fell out and healed the second she left because she did it wrong lmao,” Teigen shared to her millions of followers, detailing how the piercer seemingly didn’t do her job correctly and left Teigen with a useless piece of jewelry and an already-healed hole.
‘Impossible To Do Wrong’
She continued her story in a bit of a joking manner, but still maintained the seriousness of the issue, writing, “Like how do you do it wrong? It’s a hole, through the nose. It’s like jerry seinfeld‘s bobsledding joke. It’s impossible to do wrong.”
The star then went on to clarify the aforementioned tweet by subsequently posting, “Wait actually it was the luge.”
The post led many of her followers to share their own wisdom in the realm of piercing, with some saying that the piercer did indeed to a bad job.
One fan wrote to Teigen, “Omg yeah it’s way too high. Let that heal and get another one. You can play around with drawing a pen dot on the nostril to see where you want it but you def don’t want it right there.”
Others were quick to point out the proper procedure for nose piercings, “She should have used a screw style nose ring and twisted the post sufficiently to where it would not pop out,” a tweet from another fan replying to Teigen said.
“These are long enough to accommodate swelling during the healing process and yeah, those heal over super fast.”
The piercing mishap doesn’t seem to be holding Teigen back too much though, as she took to Instagram Tuesday morning to share bikini shots of herself while her, Legend, and their friends vacation for the “All Of Me” musician’s 42nd birthday.
No less loved-up than they normally appear in public, the couple is joined by close confidantes Mike Rosenthal and Jen Atkin, who have been seen enjoying the tropical paradise just as much as the mega-famous pair have over the last few days.
