I figured I might as well go for the trifecta here and go through how my dad came to find out about my nipple rings. My grandpa, his dad passed away in 2000 and I was back up for the funeral. I had had my nipples pierced for probably well over a year at this point and since I was away at Miami and there was really no reason for him to see me without a shirt on when I was home, I had managed to keep it from him.
Anyway, I was ironing my shirt for the funeral downstairs and he came down to see me, talked, etc about grandpa. I did not have a shirt on yet because I was ironing it so I had my back turned towards him for a long time but I got to the point where there was no more hiding it as I was done ironing. So I decided this was as good of a time as any. I put both hands up behind my head the way I would if I was being arrested and the cops placed my hands up there as to show I did not have a weapon of any kind and I slowly turned while saying “Well this is as good of a time as any, check these out.”
He just shook his head and said, “damn homo stuff right there.” My dad was definitely conservative. But that was really the end of it. Down the road when they had their place down in Ft Myers, there were times when he would actually have people come over and he would say, “look at that crap” to see how other people would react about it.
