DIY inner conch

Let me just start off by saying that you should not pierce yourself if you don't have to. A lot can go wrong and professionals really know what they're doing. That being said, do not go out and get pierced anywhere that uses guns. I have been horrified to see my friends with new piercings, only to find out that they got it done with a gun. Not just lobes, either. I'm talking tragus piercings and helix piercings. Don't do it! Guns are bad. Anyway, back to my conch. I've always wanted a big ring around my ear, so one ... read more

Painless Nipple Piercings

About five days ago I decided to finally get my nipples pierced after my boyfriend gave me a gift certificate to my favorite shop, Native Rituals, in Oak Forest, IL. I was hesitant to go through with it because I had heard stories of how much the piercing hurt and the aftercare/ healing time. Many people said it was the most painful piercing they've had. I also wasn't too excited that I would be getting these done in the dead of winter where my nipples are prone to getting REALLY cold, I only imagined what that would be like with ... read more

My conch – just keep pushing!

Shortly after I had my helix pierced, I started to get the itch again for another piercing. I started researching other sites, and finally settled on 3 options. Either adjacent to my helix, my tragus, or my snug. The tragus was looking unlikely, however, one Friday I went out to lunch, and our waiter had a most curious piercing in her ear. Right inside it. When I went home, I researched it and found that it was the inner conch. I knew at that point that that was the one for me. I was a bit short on funds at ... read more

Old Venom Piercing.

This is old. But I remember I kept track of my experiance and wanted to share it. Thursday, February 4th, 2010. I made plans with my friends to get my piercings, I was supposed to go to a different piercer to get them done, but, he wound up saying there were to many complications with the process and decided to not do it. So I went to a place I knew would. three or four days earlier I went over to tattoo nation here in San Antonio with my friend. it was 45$ for each individual one. but, as I ... read more

Loving my nape!

I remember when I first saw a nape piercing when I was 18 in college. It initially turned me off and I was grossed out, but I was only interested in more ear piercings and maybe a nose at the time, so that figured. After I got some facial ones a couple of years later, I was more into uncommon piercings, so I became interested at that point. I looked at galleries online, looking carefully at the pictures and reading up on all of the stories, and I had to decide if this was something I really wanted. I did ... read more

DIY Nies

So first of all, I know that nies piercing is not so well-known, so I'm going to explain where it is. It is placed on that particular part of skin where your ear joins your head. (You can see pictures in the BME Gallery) The idea of getting nies has crossed my mind a long time ago, but actually i've never taken it seriously. I was thinking that it would be awesome to have such piercing, but I have never seen anyone with nies, so I thought that this is for a reason and it is very hard or painful ... read more

Nipple Piercings

So I've had a pretty crappy last two weeks. And as everyone knows, piercings make everything better, right? Well, at least I think that :) But I'm not technically supposed to get anymore, so I let the idea drift...until I heard my friend talking about his nipple piercing. And how much it hurt. And how long it took to heal. And how much he likes it. So naturally, I asked him to show me. Hannibal did say we covet what we see. And I didn't want just one. No, I wanted to of those suckers. So I started checking around ... read more

A life long stretching dream come true!

I’ll never forget when I first became interested in lobe stretching: I was sitting at my Great Grandma’s house in Michigan and she was watching some sort of documentary (I couldn’t have been more than 8 years old.) On this documentary, there were two old women who had hung weights from their ears their entire lives and their ear lobes had become long enough for them to wrap into their ponytails. I was amazed! After that experience, I was very interested in the cultural aspects of body modification. I did tons of research on a large variant of piercings, but ... read more

Tattoo Cherry Popped

During New Years Eve, I thought about getting something on my body modified, I just couldn't decide. I originally planned to get a septum or nostril pierced, but in the back of my mind I always wanted a tattoo. Granted I had been thinking about getting one for about three years now, but could never really get my head around what I would want attached to me for the rest of my life. Four days after that, I got my first tattoo. I've always been a huge gamer. Ever since I could remember, I've always had a controller in my ... read more

Pretty Inner Daith

I didn't have a big Christmas. However, I spent it with people I love so I am happy for that... But, I felt the need to get something for myself. A gift. I love the excitement before getting a new piercing. And the piercings themselves always make me feel happy. I searched online for pictures of unique ear piercings. I looked at photos of Rooks, but decided that wasn't what I wanted. Plus, that part of my ear is very small. While browsing Rooks I came across a photo of a Daith and fell in love. The piercing is just ... read more
