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

Musings After My Scarification

I was scarred by Brian Decker on October 31, 2009 during his visit to Austin, Texas. My scarification is of a blue jay. It is placed on the left side of my torso; it is approximately eight by four inches; and it is incredibly detailed. The process lasted just over four hours. Decker used cutting, skin removal, and shading techniques. As time progresses and I surpass the five week mark of being scarred, I keep reflecting on all the things I failed to realize before Brian Decker removed some of my skin... As far as cleaning: I washed my scar ... 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

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

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

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

"Go big or go home"

I'll make sure I don't leave any detail out! Well, a few months ago I saw glass talons and barbs for the first time. A friend of mine showed me, and for whatever reason I wanted them stuck in my head. I just really liked the way the glass looks, the colors and different styles really appeal to me. I've have piercings done before, like my tongue and ears with small gauges, and I was never really excited about them. I had them removed a long time ago as a result. So aside from my ink I haven't had any ... read more

Now my chest is even shinier! Sternum microdermal...

I've been thinking about getting a microdermal for a while, particularly after my two failed nape piercings. I did the research, looked at pictures, read experiences, and then figured out my finances -- yeah, it wasn't going to happen. I forgot about it for a while. It was around a year before I thought about it again. After finishing a novel for National Novel Writing Month and finishing a term at school, I decided a reward was in order -- despite Christmas, my finances had an extra $100 I could live without, so I stopped by Strange City after my ... 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

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
