My Navel

I have always wanted a navel ring, for one reason: navel jewelry is so just so darn pretty! For years in high school I eyed racks of dangling rhinestones and thought "one day, when my belly is flat enough, I will wear one of those!" Yes, I am a self conscious girl. But a few months ago, after months of hitting the gym (not to mention getting over my teenage awkwardness) I finally felt ready. Having only had a couple of basic piercings done before (ears, nose, eyebrow), and I had trusted a friend of mine to refer me to ... read more

My lower back surface piercing

I love piercing's! I recently decided to get a surface piercing. I decided to get my lower back pierced and my belly button. I had been looking on this web site, bmezine.com and saw that you could get anything pierced that you can pinch basically. The back piercing looked fun and cute so I wanted it! I went to Virginia beach ink in Va beach Va. My friend Jane Rae told me that they were having piercings for sale for only 10 dollars. That included the jewelry and everything. The piercers name is "Shimp". I got my back then my ... read more

Septum Piercing (With Clamps, Painless)

I recently turned 18, and I decided it was about time I got a piercing for myself. I have my nostril and navel pierced, as well as my tragus, and previously had my lobes stretched to 5/8". My tragus and nostril were both pierced at Tan-tastic, the studio I went to for my septum piercing. It is clean and reputable. I asked Sharron, the piercer, how much the piercing would be, and viewed my jewelry options. The establishment doesn't pierce with retainers, as people have complained about them falling out overnight, causing the piercings to close up. I chose the ... read more

My gorgeous bridge

About two years ago I saw a girl on the internet with a bridge piercing. I was very fascinated as I had never seen one of these. At that time I was fourteen and my parents wouldn't let me have any piercing except for my lobes and helix. They told me I'd needed to wait until I was sixteen. It never popped into my head that I could have a bridge piercing myself, for almost a year. When I turned fifteen I begged for piercings but no, and everyday the answer was no. I started to draw dots on my ... read more

Learning From Experience (A Cautionary Customer Sevice Tale)

As an individual who has grown up in the Body Modification community; I always considered myself to be pretty knowledgeable about what to look for when dealing with the experience of going to a new piercing (or tattoo) studio. Looking for certification, cleanliness of the environment, and etcetera. I often inquire about the years of experience the individual professional has had, how many years their studio has been in operation - so on and so forth. However, for once in my life - all my prior knowledge and experience failed me when I decided to journey into "Grand Island Ink". ... read more

Doing up the Button

Doing UP The Button ~ By February 2009 I had discovered that I had a small addiction to piercing, or was it just to the sparklies that filled the resultant holes. By this time I had three holes in each ear (two cartilage), one in my nose and one in my most special of girly places, all of which I had grown to love and couldn't imagine being without. But as with any family, a new member is always greeted with joy and love and it was time for the birth of my belly button piercing. I was always a ... read more

My beautiful nape piercing.

I should start this off with saying I currently have twenty piercings, and have had over forty if you count everything that has been ripped out, taken out, and/or re-pierced. I'm not quite sure what made me decide that I wanted a nape piercing, but I've always seemed to love getting piercings that aren't common, and ones that get comments such as, "WOW, how does that work?!" Anyway, one morning I woke up and decided I wanted to get my nape pierced. I never even considered it before that day. I have long hair and figured it would be constantly ... read more

On being the piercee AND the piercer

Note to readers: Although I did many of my own piercings, self piercing must be done with EXTREME CAUTION. Screwing up your own piercings is not fun. Also, I may have pierced my friend's nipples at home, but this is not something you should attempt unless you have had experience. I had watched many nipple piercings and had permission from the piercer I apprentice under to try a nipple piercing. I also had my notes from observing in the shop. I do recognize that it might not have been wise to pierce without supervision. I've been piercing various parts of ... read more

Finally Have an Eyebrow Piercing

First of all I would just like to say, I have wanted piercings since I was little because I just thought they looked cool. Practically every night I dreamt about tattoos and piercings, always believing I would never get them. My family is very, very strict. They aren't particularly religious, just dead set against piercings. I couldn't even mention liking piercings. Whenever my parents saw people with them, they just ranted about how bad they were. I even hated the fact that four-year-old children could get piercings and I was sixteen and couldn't! I got my tragus pierced spur-of-the-moment about ... read more

Self scarred hearts

From the first time I saw scarification on BME I really liked this type of modification. I have always liked the look and feel of scars, I think they can be very beautiful. However I didn't know if I would ever get any done personally and was very scared about the prospect of someone cutting me. After considering it for a while I decided I wanted to do scarification on myself. I would be much more comfortable cutting myself than having someone else do it because I have self harmed for quite a few years so I feel I know ... read more
