My New Septum Piercing

Over the past month, I've been really wanting to get my septum pierced so I can stretch it to a 00g. Unfortunately, I am underage (16) and my parents refused to allow me to get any additional piercings since I already have my "huge ears." I have not asked them for permission to get my septum, because I knew it would be a no. So, I thought of a way I could still get it. I could go with my friend Kina and have her sign me off at a studio to get it professionally pierced. She said it would ... read more

Paradise Trails

Yesterday was amazing. I'm fairly sure this was my most emotional suspension so far. Lots of me almost crying. I suspended for Zane Whitmore's movie Feet Off the Ground and it was most definitely worth the 23 hour day I had. I woke up at 4.42am and was out of the house by 5.30. Headed over to Zane's and hit traffic so I didn't get there until 9am. We all hit the road at about 10. After some great breakfast in Puyallup we headed to Mt. Rainier, about an hour and a half drive. We drove up to the Paradise ... read more

My Sweet Septum Piercing

After yet again getting the itch to get a new piercing, I started browsing BME for ideas for what I should get next. I live in a conservative area and have a conservative family, meaning that my mods need to be subtle and easy to hide, much to my dismay. I came across the septum piercing at first and passed over it thinking that it wasn't for me. Then I began to look at it more and I realized that I actually really love how it looks, and there is the big plus that it can be flipped up in ... read more

My Ink Rejection Story or How I Learned Green Ink Doesn't Like Me

I guess I'll put this in tattoo removal...since it removed itself. Have you ever had an allergic reaction to ink in your tattoo? I have… and let me tell you it ain’t pretty. I’ve only had one bad experience, but it didn’t shy me away from getting more (wink wink). I’m not writing this as a warning per se; more as just an experience. I mean hey, there was no way to tell the ink would reject, even though it is known that some pigments have a tendency to do so more than others – like red and yellow tones. ... read more

My First Tattoo

It was my junior year of college. I was living in Bronxville, NY, blissful at Concordia College, surrounded by friends who I loved. There was a girl named..well...we'll just call her "M". M had been my roommate for a half semester when I first arrived. M was very unstable. She had a severe drinking problem, a temper problem, a hitting problem and one time got so wasted that she peed on the floor of our door room because she THOUGHT she was in the bathroom. As you can imagine, it was NOT awesome. M thought we were best friends, only ... read more

DIY Septum Piercing Experience

I've always loved piercings, but when I was younger, I wasn't allowed to get any (not even a navel piercing!) by my parents. Okay, so I could have actually got it done, but it sure wouldn't help me get along with my parents any better, and we were already fighting everyday, so I decided I better wait until I'm at least 18 before I get any piercings done myself. When I was almost 19, I decided it was time to do something about it. I was still living with my parents (and I still am today), and this lead to ... read more

Oops: One Man's Misadventures In The World Of Nipple Piercing

When I was eighteen years old in the spring of 1999, roughly around March, I wanted to get my first piercing. I had started getting into tattoos, but didn't at that time have any piercings. I knew that I wanted to get my nipple, and eventually both nipples pierced. My inspiration was that two of my favorite rock stars, who I at that time somewhat modelled myself after, being Tommy Lee and Axl Rose both had pierced nipples. Those were the guys who I wanted to be like at that age. That in and of itself is not a very ... read more

My tongue piercing at the age of 14

When I was a little girl my mom would take me to the mall to get my hair cut and whenever we went there we had to pass one of 'those' stores; the ones with rainbow colored hair dye, obscene shirts, and body jewelry. I remember one time we were walking past and I saw, what at the time I thought was, the oddest thing. There was a poster and on that poster was a scary girl sticking out her tongue....on her tongue was a big silver ball. I was horrified; why would anyone want to do that to themselves? ... read more

Tebori at Tattoo Hollywood

I have admired tattoos for a long time. As far back as I can remember. I have a very distinct memory of myself at about the age of 5, standing in my driveway, pushing my shirt sleeve up and staring down at my bicep thinking, "I'm going to have a tattoo there someday." At this point, I'm no stranger to tattoos. I've been working on a sleeve for a while now. Since I choose to travel to my artist, it is a slow process towards completion. Originally my sleeve was meant to go almost to my wrist so that I ... read more

My 3x Helix (And Its Sorrows)

This is a tale of ears. Or, rather, just the right one. Boring, melodramatic back story (before we get to the blood and physical pain): I knew for about a year I was going to get either 3 helix piercings or an industrial before I actually got pierced. I loved the aesthetics of both, (still do) but couldn’t decide and didn’t want both at the same time. I didn’t know when I was going to go under the needle, but by golly, I was going to someday. Fast forward: In December, the guy I had been seeing broke it off ... read more
