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

I want my... nipples pierced!!

Since I was 16 I've been wanting to get my nipples pierced. I'm not exactly sure what led me to them, but they've always been both fascinating, and, in my opinion, gorgeous. Two weeks ago I turned "legal", and that day I went to go get my conch pierced, but I was itching for more. Over the two years of waiting for the chance to walk into a shop and scream at the top of my lungs "I want my NIPPLES pierced!" I finally, on impulse, I drove over to the best piercing studio I knew of, threw my caution ... read more

My poor mangled tongue (botched piercing through frenulum)

I had one of the worst experiences of my life getting my tongue pierced at a supposedly decent shop in the DC area. Not just one of my worst experiences with piercings, but one of the worst experiences of my life, full stop. I normally go to several excellent piercers Cambridge, MA. I'm no stranger to piercings - I currently have a nostril, industrial, both nipples, two inner labia, and a VCH, but I was in DC and due to work schedules, had to get my tongue there if I was going to get it done. We (my partner and ... read more

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
