Regret

I'm usually really thoughtful about all my body mods, in fact it took me years of thought to decided on whether I was sure about getting my first tattoo, and a tonne of research on which artist was best suited to do it. So now that I'm sitting here with a gauze compress taped to my chest, I'm wondering what the hell I was thinking, or if I was even thinking at all. I was shopping with my mother and sister about three or four months back, I was nearly broke and hadn't even brought anything yet, but we had ... read more

Ups and Downs of My Medusa

Before I decided to get my philtrum piercing, I had some concerns. I worried that it only looked good on super slim females with extremely delicate features; I worried about the labret stud becoming embedded; I worried about its effect on kissing. I have hit the double digit in piercings, so I wasn't worried about the pain, but I always carefully consider these things. Still, I had always loved the look of them, and in the end just decided fuck it, if it doesn't work, I'll take it out. And so I went with my friend, who was getting her ... read more

First Tattoo – Advice? Shop Around!

So I had been wanting to get a tattoo since I was 17 or so, but I didn't want to rush into getting something that didn't have some sort of lasting meaning in my life. Around my 19th birthday I came up with a design I liked of a tenor saxophone placed over black and white checkers (I'm a big fan of ska music, both modern and going back all the way to Jamaica in the 60's). I've been playing saxophone since I was 10 and it has become not only my main hobby but the focus of my college ... read more

The day I got my lip pierced. Best day ever in other words.

Let me start by saying I am 14 years of age, this is my sucess at a lip piercing done un-professionally, which all say never works mostly. Okay so my experience dates back almost a month ago I believe. This was kinda a do-it-myself thing, although not myself I had a friend do it. Now I had many a lectures on doing it yourself and on counting on a infection. It was supposedly not allowed at all, though I could not have chosen a better piercing to defiy my parents with. Furthermore, it is all okay now with me and ... read more

confession after confession -- my stomach tattoo

The one question I've always hated the most when people see my tattoos is the inevitable "what does it mean?" I don't really have an issue giving some explanation to the people who ask me, but most of the time, I'd just rather not. This is not because I'm a prick and don't have time for the un-tattooed masses, no. The explanation is sometimes just as painful as the tattoo, and really, having the tattoo in the first place is enough. Undoubtedly, most of the people here have stories or memories associated with their tattoos – painful, funny, embarrassing, or ... read more

My horizontal lip piercing, a story to remember.

My horizontal lip piercing. I'm a kid that has always been interested in tattoo's piercings and that kind of things. So it was no wonder, that at the time I turned 16, I wanted piercings.. Hell I wanted allot of them. I started off with 2 off centre tongue piercings. Everything went fine with them, I still got them, 2 years later. But at the time I turned 17 I wanted to try something new. I always wanted to get a visible piercing. Just because I like the look on people their faces as they see it the first time. ... read more

My First Needle, and then My Second

My fascination with piercings started when my sister went to get her third and forth done when I was about ten. She had had her lobes done when she was born so that was nothing special and the ones she got done next were just higher up on her ears so yet again nothing special but seeing her get them done left me wanted to do so myself. Seeing as I am a male my parents said no. My dad had one of his ears done years ago but had taken it out and my mom had flat out refused ... read more

"I'm here to help clean up the blood.."

Stretching has been a very long and painful journey for me, and for 7 years worth of work I only had these dinky little 3/4" lobes to show for it. When I decided to move forward from the size I'd been for over 2 years I realised two things: 1. My left ear was thinning at the bottom and 2. I had a blowout and some pretty good sized keloids on my right ear that I felt would make the process more difficult. My first priority was fixing the problems before going any bigger, so I went about looking for ... read more

My DIY tongue web experience!

Okay, so, it all started when i was about 13. I had just one piercing in each lobe, and wanted more. So i got a second hole, a couple of years later, got a third one. And slowly over the past couple of years I've desperately wanted to get pierced, somewhere not very common. I'm a person who tends to enjoy being different sometimes. And i wanted a piercing that was different. So after reading a bunch of stories on here, I got my smiley pierced. But that's another post. So one day, I come across a picture of a ... read more

Snakebites

So this will be an account of the two 14g, CBR labret piercings I got a month ago. To date these make my 9th and 10th piercings; the previous 8 being four lobes, a conch and three tongue piercings. Two of the lobes and the conch were recently self done, but I decided to get the labrets done professionally. Self piercing is an increased risk everyone considering it must judge for themselves. I judged that the prevalence of placement (being the first thing most people see) justified having a piercer put them in. As for the experience of getting them ... read more
