My Lovely Little Hip Microdermals

The first time I had seen hip piercings was when I was 13. Needless to say, I immediately fell in love with the piercing, but had strict parents, so even asking for them was completely out of the question. So I settled on admiring them, and after about a year, I stopped thinking about them for the most part. However, five years later, my little obsession had resurfaced. By the time I was 17, I’d had my bellybutton pierced and my lobes stretched to 1/2”, and at 18, I’d found myself dying for another piercing. My boyfriend, who surprisingly liked ... read more

Tattooing my Elbow, Working on my horror sleeve

Slowly but surely I am putting together my horror themed sleeve. I started with my Vampira portrait on my upper arm and next came my Edgar Allan Poe portrait. Poe went on the top of my forearm. Though I love my portraits I felt like my arm looked silly and extremely disconnected so I would always cover one of them up(usually Vampira because a longer short sleeve shirt covers her up.) I had an appointment made for this past Friday and I was going to work on my wrist. The more I thought about it the less convinced I was ... read more

Elbow-ish?

It had been several months since my last tattoo and I was getting that infamous itch, I wanted another one. I had so many ideas buzzing around my head that I just couldn't choose, so I decided to wait a while until something I had to have popped into my head. In the mean time I satisfied my body mod urge with a microdermal piercing. One day at work, I spotted a girl with what looked like a heart on her lower arm. It was 'upside down' so that when she had her arm bent upwards, it was the right ... read more

Belly button piercing

Okay, so I admit it! I am what you call a "goody two shoes." I get good grades, I study a lot, I'm respectful to my parents and peers -- and I even clean my room everyday. But more than anything, I wanted a bellybutton ring. "Cute," my mother called it. "Not for you!" is what my father called it, and "cool!" is what my friends call it. Getting your navel pierced isn't the same as getting your ears pierced, where you walk into an accessories shop at the mall and have a teen-ager pierce a hole through your body. ... read more

My Most Missed Piercing

Sadly this story doesn't have an ideal ending. My navel piercing rejected not only once, but twice. I literally cried the first time I had to take it out permanently. I didn't think I would try to pierce it again but I couldn't live without it. Once again, it refused to heal properly and I had to remove it forever... well, until I try a third time in a few months. Anyway, this is my story. So I wake up one morning, check out the photo gallery on BMEzine and think to myself, "Oh man, I NEED another piercing". Yeah, ... read more

Painless Anti-tragus

Two days ago I went to get my anti-tragus pierced for my 18th birthday. I had been waiting to get this piercing for about two years, and had to wait until I turned 18 because my parents won’t sign for it. Other than the anti-tragus, I have 10 ear piercings- 3 pairs of lobes, 1 extra lobe on the right ear, and 3 cartilage on the left ear. I self-pierced everything other than two of the lobe pairs which were done at Claire’s when I was younger and unknowledgeable of their evil piercing gun ways. Thanks to Claire’s I have ... read more

Clavicle Surface Piercings

I've been itching for another piercing since my last in December. I knew exactly what I wanted done- surface piercings below my collarbones. The problem was getting the timing just right. Having had surface piercings before, I know they don't last long. I knew I had to wait until Summer so that I could actually show them off, and minimise the need for clothing that would rub against them. Looking through my old diaries (they're very embarassing!) I found out that my first "real" piercing was 15th July 2005. What better way to celebrate my five year anniversary than getting ... read more

getting into piercing at 35

OK so this is the story of how I got my tongue pierced at 35. I've always lived a very main stream conventional life, thinking that the only reason I was on this planet was to do what I was supposed to do and make everyone around me happy even if that meant that very early on I had to give up having my own personality or just being myself. I guess I was raised to be that way, or maybe I have an overly developed sense of responsibility that made me become that way. It took me many years ... read more

first white kanji!

Yesterday I got my first tattoo, and just to make it a little different. I had it in white. I'm 19 and have wanted a tattoo for about 5yrs, Id planned on getting one as soon as I hit 18, but because my boyfriend wasn't keen I put it on hold. About a month ago, he said he wouldnt mind a tattoo if it was something discreet, so after thinking about it I thought white would be a good option. We talked it over and he agreed that would be fine. I am the first person in my family to ... read more

$80 to put in, $80 to take out

This is the story of my two lovely chest microdermals, from their birth to shortly before their death. It was one of those days where you just get an itch for yet another piercing. Even though I had waiting at least the healing time between piercings, my navel had only been done for a couple weeks and was crooked despite two attempts, but the second was straighter than the first. The only reason this matters is because the piercer, Jason, who had done my navel was having a sale on his services to generate revenue to move to a new ... read more
