My First Tattoo

My First Tattoo On my 18th birthday i had an idea that i was going to get a tattoo. The tattoo had to be custom i didnt want one of those tats that were out of a book, so i got in contact with a local artist and we discussed some ideas. I informed him that I am a firefighter and wanted something that could represent both me and my job. I allowed the artist to draw it however he wanted. He came up with a fire department shield with a cracked stone cross in front of it, with two ... read more

my septum project.

I've wanted a facial piercing for over 3 years now, not knowing which one i wanted to get. Initially i wanted snakebites, then my nostril, then back to snakebites. Until eventually i decided i wanted my septum pierced. I thought "Hey, it's simple, practical, and all around awesome." I've researched the piercing for months. How it was done, the tools used, how to know if your piercer is qualified. I watched many videos of it being done. In almost all the videos, the piercer used clamps. But i also found out that an alternative to the painful clamps were receiving ... read more

Avatar Made Me Do It

I've got a theory that watching films in which body mods are displayed encourages me to get them. One of the reasons that 300 is one of my favourite films is because of the piercings that Xerxes, his subjects and his harem prominently display throughout the movie. Anyway, in February 2010 when I was 19, I went to see Avatar with my friend and her flatmate. Although Avatar isn't my favourite film, it is the best film I've seen. Afterwards I was waiting for the bus and had half an hour to wait so I wandered along the street and ... read more

The Taurus & Her Bull Ring

This septum piercing wasn't exactly planned. I woke up that day, knowing I wanted a piercing. I decided on a tongue web. I drove down to TRX, told Stan that what I wanted and he smiled and asked, "Who's gonna do it for you?" to which I replied, "You?" No, Stan does not do tongue webs... Sad Face. My usual piercer and the only piercer I had let come near me with a needle, Courtney, until that day was in Las Vegas for the APP Conference. So, I sat there, cycling through which piercing I was going to get instead. ... read more

My little birdie feet!

I have several tattoos, and almost everyone i know pretty much excepts my art as just who I am. When I talk about my plans they are supportive, sometimes helping me work out a design, or offering me constructive criticism if they think it would look better with more blue, etc. All and all my tattoos are loved because they are part of me, and day to day not much is said about them. But when I told my friends I wanted to get the tops of my feet tattooed with old school swallows and the text "true" on the ... read more

Not What I Expected In A Bridge

So this is the story of my bridge piercing. It starts in January of 2010. I had just gotten my first piercings [nips] and started my journey with the needle. I became infatuated with piercing, soaking up any information I could, and spending LOTS of time on BME. In January I had my nipples done and soon after my vertical philtrum and inversed vertical labret. I knew what the next step was in completing my facial project: The Bridge. Well, after about 2 & 1/2 months, a best friend, Rachel, surprised us all with a visit. She had been gone ... read more

Popped the ink cherry

Saturday the 27th of March, 2010 - Probably one of the happiest days of my life. I've never felt so anxious, nervous, nauseous, happy or excited, ever. To be one hundred per cent honest, I was completely shitting myself. Since I was underage, I had to have my mother with me, for permission. She has 5 tattoos, so I trusted her judgment when it came to the extent of the pain. But, of course, being the strange & cruel person she is, she decided to absolutely freak me out by exaggerating the feeling of getting a tattoo. "The shading felt ... read more

Septum piercing (not actually that painful!)

Well, I have been a huge fan of septum piercings for a few years now, but had read quite a few horror stories on them and how much they 'kill'. I think I finally decided to just go for it after I had both my nipples pierced, as that wasn't as bad as I previously had thought it would be. Each time before I get any piercing done, I spend a while (at least a week) decided if it’s what I really want and the types of jewellry available for the certain piercing. I look in the galleries here on ... read more

Nipple

When I was eight years old, I had one wish for my birthday, It was to pierce my earlobes. And my wish was granted and on the day of my birthday my mother and my brother took me too a jewelry shop and the old lady there pierced me with a piercing gun. It wasn´t until years later that I realised what a stupid move that was. My lobes was too thick for the short piercinggun jewelry and the infection was a fact. During the years I have also pierced a second hole in my left ear (with a piercinggun) ... read more

Tongue piercing - Still learning to love it!

So this is the story of me choosing to get my tongue pierced...I'm not really sure what made me decide to get it done as it didn't really feature in my original piercing plans! At that point i already had my nose, 2 sets of lobe studs and my lip pierced twice with further plans for many more but one day i just decided with the wide range of jewellry available that i wanted a tongue piercing. I've now come to realise that i can't get rid of this piercing because i've spent stupid amounts of money on jewellry for ... read more
