Permanent Eyeliner, me?

So I finally took the plunge and decided to get permanent eyeliner. Some know that I have been riding that fence like a rodeo clown for nearly two decades. First it was the fear of it hurting, then it was finding just the right person to do it. I mean, come on, this is permanent and its in an obvious place, so it better not look stupid.
Then a couple months ago I got this job in a dental office. Yes, I said a dental office. Most people would never think of permanent make-up and dental at the same time, but if you really think this one through, you'll see just how truly brilliant this idea is. Professionals that are used to numbing their patients before doing uncomfortable procedures working on a total crybaby like me. And I AM a crybaby, all of my coworkers can attest to me being a whiner.
Now back to my story... I got permanent eyeliner done last night. April did it. This sounds like a suck up, but its the gods honest truth. She is an artist. She did a beautiful job! I'm a little puffy still, so no pictures until I'm all healed up, but it just looks better and better every time I look at it. And the doctors... I don't get to see much of the doctors during the workday, I try to keep their schedules hopping, but I can now speak from personal experience that I absolutely believe these guys (and gals) are some of the most gentle people that have ever worked on me.
Anyway, I digress. The numbing shots I felt. I won't lie, but for the most part, they were shots. Come on, those damn things sting. But a minute of stinging for years of never stabbing myself in the eye with an eyeliner pencil again, I choose the numbing stuff. So anyway, I was a baby and I cried. It took all of 30 seconds and a couple deep breaths of laughing gas to make it all better again. I slept through the rest. Yes me, the nervous wreck slept through it all. How's that for brilliant?
I just want to say a big THANK YOU to April, Dr. Melton, and Dr. Burkett for taking such great care of me. I know I'm a terrible patient, but thank you for your time, your patience and most of all, thank you for just being the incredible caring professionals I get to work with every day and brag about to all my friends. :-D
