More than expected

Ever since I started getting piercings other than my earlobes, I had wanted to get my tongue pierced. I still don't know why, it was just a piercing I had always wanted. Living at home with my parents, they kept telling me that I wasn't allowed, but I knew once I turned 18 I was going to get it done. Finally, a couple months before I turned 19, I decided to get it done. It was the day I finished my last exam of my first year of university, and I wanted to reward myself. So with a couple of ... read more

My Nipple Piercings

I love piercings, but because of rugby I am limited to what I can keep in. November 2010 I decided to get my nipples pierced, so I went to the tattoo and piercing shop I usually go to, and they were having a buy one, get one free deal on piercings. A friend of mine who had his nipples pierced before and wanted to get them done again also came with me. I still wasn't sure if I wanted them, so he went first and I watched. After he was done, I decided I wanted them, because I wanted new ... read more

Oh Man, I Don’t Know What I’m Thinking Wanting More Back Work…

Since I was 10 years old, I always knew I was going to get at least one tattoo and would often tell my mom this and receive mostly skeptical looks. By age 14 I was checking out books from the library about tattoos. I was interested by the different styles, the quality, the safest way to get one. Well 15 comes around and I become obsessed with the idea of finding the perfect piece of art to get on my back, specifically a dragon. I’m a decent enough artist, but not for this and I know if it’s going to ... read more

My Double Nose Piercing (DragonBites)

I have been in love with body modifications since I was at the tender crossroads of teenage-dome. 12 years old and crazy to have who knows what screwed into my face! But never in those 4 years of waiting had I assumed that the first "real piercing" I'd have would be on the most hated part of my face; my nose! Like most other people, I had my lobes pierced at an age where I couldn't even count, so my first remembered experience of having a piece of metal inserted into my flesh was at 14 years old. I had ... read more

A simple nostril means so much

Well, first I'm a guy LOL. That's a bit odd for some of the people in my circle given what I'm about to tell you. I wanted my first piercing (not counting gunned lobes - twice - and cartilage from Claire's). I'm 26 and had been wanting my belly button (navel) since I was 18, and I was in California. And the weather was awful. What else does one do when they can't party on the beach? Get their first piercing! Adding to the desire, I live in a tiny town where the shops are all dirty or just rude. ... read more

My Lovely Venoms

I finally got venoms today ^_^ It was so fucking amazing. These are my 18th piercings. I have dahlias, snake bites, angel bites, septum, eyebrow, 5/8 ear lobes, navel, and nipple piercings, and now venoms. The first studio I was planning on going to was recommended by my sister who's gotten pierced there. I called before hand to ask how much the venoms were going to cost, and the piercer who answered had no idea what those were. I had to explain to him, and then he said that those were too risky and he wouldn't do them. I was ... read more

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
