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

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

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

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

anti tragus.... take two

Getting my first "real," or needle piercing at the mere age of 16 led to a new fascination of mine. PIERCINGS! I am always aching for more. My mom hates how I love getting pierced so initially when I must have a new one I ask my father. With the same response from him each time I am always referred back to my mom. I propose the idea of a new piecing to her and she instantly says "No!" "You have so many holes soon water will pour out of you when you drink." Months pass and I continue to ... read more

Two years in the planning, over in twenty minutes.

Ever since I can remember, I've been fascinated with tattoos. I've wanted one since before I started high school, but knew it was a no go, at least until I turned eighteen. My father died when I was eight months old. Therefore I have no memories of him. I do, however, have several items of his clothing and people have told me things about him, et cetera. He used to sing the song Forever Young by Bob Dylan to me, when getting me to sleep or whilst bathing me. My grandparents had the lyrics printed and framed for a gift ... read more

Snakebites

I've been wanting snakebites on and off for about 3 years. I got bored one day, so I started looking at pictures online of them, and fell in love instantly. They where perfect - Where I live, not a lot of people have them, and none of them on guys. I wanted to be different, to stand out from everyone else. So I started talking to my girlfriend - who has an apprenticeship - about it, and she said she'd do them for me. That was the easy part. Now to convince my mom. Once I had finally picked up ... 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
