Everyone’s freaking out over Justin Bieber’s nose piercing, and now HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details about how it all went down directly from the guy who did it!
Justin Bieber, 22, shocked his fans when he revealed on Instagram that he had his nose pierced while on tour. We spoke EXCLUSIVELY to Pip Holcombe, the guy who pierced Justin’s nose in Vancouver, Canada on Thursday night, March 10, and can reveal everything you need to know about his new bling.
Sorry, Beliebers… if you were hoping that Justin’s nose piercing was a fake or a photoshop, you couldn’t be more wrong. It turns out that Justin’s nose stud is very, very real — and HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal the body piercer who did the job!
Justin “took it like a champ,” says Pip Holcombe, a Body Piercer at Millenium Ink and the owner of Wildcat Body Jewelry. “He was great,” he only bled “a little,” and his eyes watered, too, which Pip says happens to everyone. Pip also pierced one of Justin’s friends ears, and says that everyone in Justin’s crew was “really nice.”
As for the actual nose ring, it was a “clear gem bioplast nose stud,” says Pip. So, no big, sparkly diamond — yet!
The piercing happened at around 10:30pm at Pierre’s in Yaletown, which is a super hip area in Vancouver. The lounge was closed so it was just Justin, his friends, and there were “lots” of “hot girls” inside with them.
Pip also told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that he did ask for a picture after the piercing, but Justin politely turned him down. Bummer! Thankfully, Pip was totally respectful of Justin’s decision. Hey, it was his night off, after all!
Justin’s nose stud will make it’s first public appearance at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena on Friday, March 11. Unfortunately, without a performance of “One Less Lonely Girl” none of the fans will get to see it too up close and personal. Hopefully Justin posts more hot pics of his stud very soon!
