Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye ex-housemate, Arin, revealed that she got her first piercing at 15 to celebrate her admission into the University of Lagos.
Arin made this known in a live Facebook session with PUNCH Online on Wednesday, three days after she got evicted from the BBNaija house.
On leaving the show, Arin said that she has come to acknowledge the nickname that fans have given to her because of her piercings, which is ‘Lord of the rings.’
It is said that she had 23 piercings but reduced it to 17 and that made her stand out from other housemates in the ongoing BBNaija season.
She said, “I got my first piercing when I was 15. I was in UNILAG and I was in Year 1. I wanted to gift myself something for being in the University so I gifted myself a piercing.
“It was actually a tradition that continued. Anytime I’ve done something nice or feel like I’ve achieved something, I’ll gift myself a piercing. Sometimes, I just did it for no reason. It didn’t have to do with anything.”
She added, “I’m very expressive with my style in general and I really love jewelry while I was younger. So I just wanted to get piercings in places. It was just a fascination I indulged and I love it. “
According to her, the most unconventional piercing she has done is the Daith piercing, which is close to the entrance of her ear.
