Inverse Navel Piercing

The Decision I had a standard navel piercing for nine years before it migrated due to wearing a back brace. I was pretty bummed to see my piercing go as it had been one of the only successful piercings I had had. So even though I knew it was migrating, I thought I would be able to take it out, let it close, and I could get it redone. Well, six months went by and I realized the holes were not going to close. Therefore, I was stuck with two ugly holes that were too shallow to pierce or put ... read more

Tattoos in the workplace

This is my first story, and the truth is im not sure how to write... I havent been on this site in years because of multiple problems, but thats another story... but it is good to be back... So... after years of piercing and bouncing for a living, i finally got a job that was secure in this area, only problem was my tattoos and piercings. See, for the last 10 yeaqrs I have been heavily tattooed, not as much so as some on this site, but heavily for this area, I have 2 full sleeves, neck, back, chest and ... read more

Second "Real" Piercing

I've been feeling "the itch" lately to get a new piercing and decided that my trip to another city to visit friends would be the perfect time to do it. I was tossing up between getting a nose piercing or getting my nape pierced, and I decided that due to the prices in the city shop as opposed to my local shop at home, as well as trusting my piercers back home a little more, it'd probably be better that I got my nose pierced. Once I had my mind set on it there was nothing really stopping me, despite ... read more

i <3 my boobies.

Turning 18 was possibly the greatest thing that could have ever happened to me. Free of my mother’s reign, in the two months after my birthday, I went out and got an extremely large tattoo (which to this day, almost 6 months later, is still unfinished), and got my tongue pierced. I’ve thought about getting my nipples pierced since I was about 16, and finally was old enough to do it. I have fairly large boobs, but I’ve never been 100% comfortable with them; they look good when I’m dressed, but I feel like naked, they just kind of… hang ... read more

Return to the Septy Club

The last twice I have had my septum pierced, they have failed. The first through a bad piercer and the second because I got a rather bad cold while it was still in the early stages of healing. I had been planning my return to the septy club for a while. (Although, the term septy club was coined by people I no longer speak to...go figure). I missed it greatly after my last failed attempt and was planning on getting it re done before summer started but decided that was a very bad idea; I get hay fever pretty bad ... read more

My poor, poor nostrils

It started as a hopeful dream of mine. I've dreamed of having both of my nostrils pierced since I first got my septum, which was when I was eighteen. For perspective, I'm twenty-one nearing twenty-two at the moment. I was always put off by the idea for fear that there was such a thing as "too much shit" in one's face. Not so much for aesthetic value, but what in the world would I do if I sneezed? Had a cold? Had a booger? Heaven forbid I lose the ability to pinch my nose in a tissue... My sister's best ... read more

First and only tattoo - ribcage

I have been thinking about this tattoo for a long time. I am generally more of a piercing bod myself - enjoying the escape clause that is being able to remove them if you decide to go all fickle. Nevertheless, I had been obsessing about this tattoo for a while... Admittedly, not in its final incarnation. At first, I wanted text in the outline of a star, then I realised that it was not only daft, but totally impossible to get five different sized words into a shape that small. Secondly, I hadn't a clue where to put it. This ... read more

Love, Pain, and First Times

It started with a bad decision. His name was Mike, and I was so in love with him. We had been dating for a while and I decided that I wanted to get a tattoo of a heart with an infinity symbol around it and his initials underneath to show that I'd always love him. I knew I had to wait until I was legal, and I was planning on making the tattoo a 20th birthday present to myself because I really didn't want to do anything rash. I made a general sketch and then took to the internet to ... read more

Don't be afraid of the pain

Even though I only have 4 piercings now, over the last 15 years i have actually gotten pierced ... 17 times. I am a bit surprised now that I had to think back and do a count - it's a lot of times considering I only have 3 visible rings. They are in my upper cartilage. Some of them were repiercings and some of them are retired or I really only got them to experience getting them and the liberating feeling of doing something family, society but mostly my own inhibition had held me back from doing. Anyway, I want ... read more

PULSE: my first tattoo

I cannot remember exactly how old I was when I first became interested in tattoos, but my first memory of interest places me as younger than four. I was taking a shower with my aunt Liz. She has a tattoo of a fish on her outer thigh. She told me then that sometimes when she takes a shower the fish swims all the way around her waist. After that I was hooked. I knew from a very young age that I wanted pictures on me too! I became interested in drawing and art increasingly throughout my teens. The internet was ... read more
