Getting my nose pierced on both sides!

This is my first story so bear with me, but I am really excited! I will do my best to give advice and share my story with you wonderful people! Recently, I got my both sides of my nosed pierced. Now this is not my first body mod experience. I got both nipples and an industrial in both ears when I was 18. Now that I have recently turned 19, I was itching for some more piercing. So I did some looking on BME and I kept coming across people who have both sides of their nose pierced. As a ... 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

Spontaneous Tongue Web Piercing!

So I'm a piercing addict. Ever since I started boarding school, I sometimes get the urge to be a bit 'NAUGHTY' and piercings was the way to go for me! Before I got my tongue pierced that fateful day, I had 3 helix and 2 lobe piercings and a conch in my left ear, and 1 right lobe piercing. I've got double belly rings and that was the extent of my piercings. My brother's friend was a MAJORLY pierced person. And one day we were chatting and she showed me her tongue web ring. The image stuck with me until ... 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

DIY septum piercing

So, I had been wanting to get my septum pierced for a while. I always thought they looked edgier than nostril piercings with the added bonus of being able to easily hide them. I'm a nurse so easy hideability is essential for any body modifications that I choose to undertake. My nostril piercing was a big hassle having to constantly change it to a clear one or take it out when I was working. I wanted a piercing that was further outside the norm than most people go for, one that had the flexibility to wear a variety of different ... read more

I call it...Mystery Piercing!

About a month ago my dorm mate and I realized that very familiar sensation told us that we needed a new piercing. The last piercings I had gotten were my nape (R.I.P!) and my tragus on my right ear back in late March. Over six months later I knew I could handle another piercing, but what was now the question! After some research here on BME I fell in love with the daith. Oddly enough, Mena (my mate) had tried to convince me to get a daith back in July when I went to get my nape adjusted. The urge ... 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

so thats what I forgot to tell you dad...

I have double lobe piercings and a nose piercing. All were gunned. However before you judge me I would like to say I didnt know any better until recently. All piercings are fine though. But you are not here to read about my lack of knowledge on piercing equiptment though, are you? So I'll get to my lip piercing. For my fifteenth birthday I was supposed to get a scaffold/industrial piercing but when the day came my mother changed her mind. She loathes all piercings ecxept the run-of-the-mill lobe piercings that most probably most people have done in Claires accessories ... read more

So it goes.

It's been two years since I got my first tattoo. My recollection at this point is a little hazy, but I'll put together what I can. It was April 2007, and I'd been wanting a tattoo, but I had no idea *what*. When the news came through that Kurt Vonnegut had died, I knew what it would be -- Vonnegut was my favourite author all through high school and beyond, and Slaughterhouse-Five has always held a very special place in my heart. I opted for the phrase "So it goes" -- as a tribute to Vonnegut and to that book ... read more

Growing and shrinking, 12mm

I first decided to stretch my ear in March 2008. It was the craze at school, with everybody shoving tapers haphazardly into their ear lobes, squealing with pain, and waiting meagre days before continuing the ugly process. I had always admired stretched lobes and had wished to do it myself for some time, without understanding or researching the processes involved. While cynically watching my schoolmates' attempts, I decided that I wanted to do it too, and properly. So I BME-ed it and googled for an entire evening, deciding how to go about the process. On the not-long-awaited Saturday afternoon, I ... read more
