Demi Jones has revealed she has had her nipples pierced after wanting to get them done for many years.
The former Love Island star, 23, told fans that he had been wanting to get her nipples pierced for five years but had been putting it off due to fear of the pain.
She shared a video of her in the car on the way to tattoo parlour Inkd London, owned by fellow Islander Theo Campbell, telling her followers: ‘Guys, I am on my way to get my nipples pierced today.
‘I’ve wanted to do this since I was like 18 years old but I’ve always been so scared, but I will let you know how it goes.’
Hopping back on her Instagram story after the procedure, Demi was pleased to tell her followers the experience was a lot better than she had expected.
Demi revealed: ‘Guys, I’ve had it done and I can honestly say that people exaggerate. The pain was probably about seven out of 10 – I did swear – and it lasted for about five seconds on each side.

‘But now it just feels a bit sore and tender but other than that it was completely fine. I’m so glad I’ve got it done and Inkd were amazing.’
Demi’s piercings come after she opened up about her thyroid cancer diagnosis in May, urging followers to get their lumps checked out by a doctor.
Last month she revealed a video of her telling her followers about the lump on her neck which she had had for two years, prior to getting it checked.
She said in the clip: ‘I’m genuinely scared right because I’ve had this lump on my neck for about two years and it’s getting bigger.’
Demi added: ‘But I’m scared because I’m literally supposed to have an appointment in September, every month they’ve been rearranging it because obviously the pressures on the NHS and stuff at the moment because of Covid.
‘It’s been six months and I’m still not getting it checked and it’s getting bigger and it’s like stressing me out. I’m noticing it so much more in pictures.’
Demi has had an operation to remove the golfball-sized tumour and revealed in June that she was not having to have chemotherapy for it, but was still waiting for the all-clear.
She told her followers: ‘I’m fortunate enough not to go through chemotherapy. I’ve had my surgery. to remove the thyroid and I’m going to have some further iodine treatment.
‘I haven’t been told that I’m cancer free yet. I’m not actually sure if it’s completely gone or completely not gone yet. I’ve got to have some further iodine treatment in about six weeks time and some scans but hopefully by the end of the year I’ll know whether I’m cancer free.’
