What happens when you don't listen to your gut.

This is my unfortunate story about what happens when you don't listen to that nagging voice in the back of your head that tells you that something is just "off". About 3 years ago, I decided to get a tattoo. It was not my first, I already had 3 others. I had been thinking about getting a Celtic styled shamrock for a long while, and finally decided to do it. I had been to a tattoo shop in my college town a few times before, for both tattoos and piercings. I walked in and asked to make an appointment for ... read more

Double Tragus

I was always enchanted by tragus piercings and had decided that when I got the money I was going to get one; that was until I found pictures of a vertical tragus. The pictures I first saw were not true vertical tragus piercings, but surface piercings in the side burn area. Either way, I was in love. But as my excitement grew about getting this piercing I realized that my anatomy may not be suited for it. I went down to Immaculate Piercing (which is, by the way, freaking fantastic) to get a consult. Anna, the piercer, told me that ... read more

Always Be Prepared When Getting a Tattoo!

I just want to preface this story and say I'm completely satisfied with my tattoo, however, I also wish I had been more prepared before getting it, and unafraid to speak up, especially considering this artwork was going to be on my body for a lifetime. With that said, here is the story of my first tattoo: As a pre-teen and teen, I aways knew I wanted a tattoo and went through phases of what I would want. I'm glad I waited so long to actually get one though, because thinking back over all the things I used to want ... read more

My industrial piercing

In January, I turned 18. So, I decided to add another piercing to my "collection." Already having the standard first and second holes, and an upper and lower helix, I thought it was time to find a more unique piercing. I did some research and landed on the industrial piercing. I had heard that it could be a painful piercing, but I figured I could suck it up. I had planned on the industrial piercing to be a present to myself, but my mother insisted on paying for it :) I asked my friend Brittney to come with us and ... read more

The one that did not like me - at first.

I’ve already had my earlobes done at the age of 12, then my helix at 18 and my eyebrow at 21. As I got my Eyebrow Piercing, my dad almost kicked me out. I had almost finished my apprenticeship and was about to start my new job at his office (for we work together with our customers every day and he thinks the dislike piercings and tattoos as he does). So I had to stop for a moment with visible piercings. After a while I got my nipples pierced like I was a dependant to my piercing obsession. When they ... read more

First Nostril Piercing Experience

I started my long (albeit slow-moving) journey into body modification at 17 when I got my first tattoo. At that time, I only had pierced lobes (gunned from when I was a child, much to my dismay as I suspect the placement might be weird now) and no other piercings. After my tattoo, I started considering the idea of getting a nostril piercing. Fast forward nearly ten years later, and I'm sitting in a chair with my piercer and a lubed up needle aimed at my nose. My heart is pounding. The needle is scaring the shit out of me. ... read more

Tongue Piercing ^_^

So here's the story of my Tongue Piercing, it's the first thing i've ever written, so sorry if it's terrible. When I was fourteen, I was staying with my cousins up in Queesland (Australia) and one day we were out shopping when they both decieded to get there tongues pierced. At the time I was almost completely against any form of piercings and tattoo's, so when they said this I was just thinking how horrible the idea was. The younger of the cousins was only just 15 (female), and the older 16 (male). My 15 year old cousin just had ... read more

My Industrial

I have been obsessed with piercings since I was fourteen. Now I am only seventeen; however, since being 14 I have acquired ten more piercings-four of which were retired. And on December 23, 2010 I got my left industrial and tragus pierced. I have wanted my industrial done for quite a long time and it was finally time to get it after having enough research done. So the day of I was extremely nervous like I usually am right before a piercing. We went pretty last minute too which insured that I wouldn't chicken out. I had to have my ... read more

Fourth Time's the Charm...Nipple Piercing Oddessy

This is the story of my four year, four-times pierced journey to finally having female nipple piercings. I decided to get my nipples pierced not long after my first piercing (nostril). I was 31 at the time. My breasts and nipples are both very large, but not that sensitive. I read that piercing them would make them much more sensitive and decided to go for it. I read that healing could take a long time, and since I wasn't sexually active at the time, it seemed like a good time to go for it. The first time I got them ... read more

A.S.K Studio - Worst piercing experience.

I went to A LOT of piercing studios trying to find somewhere that pierced cheeks with plastic bars. I didn't want metal constantly on my teeth...I came across A.S.K in Camden town, Pricey £40 a cheek but they were all very friendly & the studio - Although it felt a bit cramped was clean. I wanted longer bars because my body tends to swell up a lot with whatever piercing I have. They assured me they would give me the longest bars they had. The piercer himself (forgotten his name) was a guy with a bushy ginger beard. He was ... read more
