Triple Helix Spiral

It all started here on BMEzine with a photo of a girl with triple helix spiral in her ear. I was fascinated by how it looked and I couldn't get it out of my mind.Since then I had been planning to get a triple helix spiral for about five months and had done a fair amount of research on local studios that did this piercing. I ended up with two studios in mind, Urban Piercing in Reading and Area 51 in Basingstoke. I had previously had my septum pierced at Urban Piercing and had a great experience there but I ... read more

First tattoo (of many, I'm sure)

I have wanted a tattoo for as long as I can remember. Since childhood, I have been fascinated by the ability of people to record life events and important personal memories on the canvas of skin. Nobody in my family had tattoos and my parents were not very approving of them, so out of respect for my parents, I didn’t proceed with getting one although I certainly had opportunities along the way to do it. I grew to adulthood and made it to the age of 42 before finally going under the needle. As a pastor, there was some apprehension ... read more

My 2g Lip Piercing

Back in the summer of 2009 my friend and I went on vacation to Virginia Beach and while we were there we found some fake lip rings. Ever since then I have wanted to get my lip pierced, snakebites to be more specific. We wore the fake lip rings to school to try and fool people but of course it didn't work so I went home and asked my parents if I could get my lip pierced for real and they said no. So what do I do? I go to my friend who is training to become a professional ... read more

My Shiny Piece Of Metal

I’ve been interested in unusual piercings ever since I was 13 years old. I’m now 22 years old. I sometimes went onto youtube and watched videos of people having their tongue pierced or simply showing off their body mods. I used to wonder what I would look like with a shiny piece of metal sticking out of my tongue. I had my nose piercing around a year ago and before long I wanted something else that was unique to me. That’s when I decided to get my tongue done. I used to go to a place called Skins & Needles ... read more

Two more ear piercings

For a few years now I had wanted more piercings going up my left ear. I already had 5 but I decided I want them going all the way up and round the top of my ear, but I just never got round to getting them done as I wanted a couple of other things done first. So finally I decided to get them done whilst I was back at home from university, at Adrenaline in Luton. Most of my friends had already gone back to uni so I didn’t have anyone to take with me, but I really wanted ... read more

Septum piercing (27/05/10)

Having not had a piercing since my labret, I found myself bitten by the bug once more when I moved back down to Portsmouth. My labret was my first piercing and though Portsmouth is not my home town, I am far more familiar with the various piercing studios here than back at home so it made sense to wait till I was back here... even if that was a year and a half. My labret was my first piercing ever and ever since then I have been thinking of getting more, but couldn't decide what I wanted. Unlike with my ... read more

The Staple That Walked

This is a retrospective story that details the life and death of my amazing flesh staple. I'd wanted a piercing for a long time. Years. But had not been able to get one until I turned 18. I'd done my research and eventually settled for what my friends and family would later call, "the most disgusting and freaky thing they had ever seen." I got a flesh staple just to the left of my shin on my left leg. Fucking awesome. My experience with this was quite difficult. I'd found a highly reputable piercer - *PLUG* The Piercing Urge in ... read more

Spontaneous Septum

I love piercings and tattoos, I think they're awesome, so the following may be biased. Take it with a shaker if salt. I've had a few piercings before, so I know what to expect going into it. Right now I'm in the process of stretching my lobes up to 1". They're at 2g right now and I'm wondering when people will notice my earrings are slowing growing. So far three stretches and no comments. I've also got 8g helix piercings on both earlobes. Those were a pain to heal and one of them even got infected, so I figure at ... read more

- My period cramps hurt more than this !

- Impulsively one day decided to get 2 more nipple piercings done, already had horizontal bars going across both nips and always wanted crosses so thought I should use my money wisely and go forth with my plans! When I think about it, these piercings mark a new beginning, the beginning of my Dissertation. Just lovely. I called to the studio and asked how it works, do I need to book a time or just pop down and apparently they're very relaxed so they just told me to come down when I felt like it. They also have a student ... read more

Septum piercing

I live right by (about two blocks away) my favorite tattoo and piercing shop. So Wednesday I walked over to Immortal Ink in Flemington, NJ for a new mod. I decided to get my septum pierced. I have my nostril pierced twice already and it was about as benign as an earlobe piercing, super easy healing. I didn't have those piercings done at Immortal, but that meant I was about due, right? ;) In any event, I knew this would be a bit more painful. My eyes didn't actually tear up with the nostril piercings but with the septum? Most ... read more
