JR'S BRIDGE EXPERIENCE AT NOMAD

Back in September of 1997 I found myself in San Francisco after a few weeks of crossing the US and swinging through Mexico. A lot of my friends back home are heavily pierced, but this was the first time I had been in a town where piercing was really common to see. You saw business-women in suits with pierced nostrils and even cops with a few cartilage pierces. So being there, and knowing I was going to be there for a while, I decided to continue with my body modification 'project' that I had started a year before when I ... read more

Another Fix For My Metal Addiction (eyebrow piercing)

've submitted 2 different experiences to BME, and this will be my third, but with those experiences, I've never really given much background on *why* I like piercing. I thought it would be a nice twist to my submission. The whole piercing thing started a long time ago, when I was about four. I loved reading medical books, and seeing operations, and other things like that. I wanted to be a doctor, then a brain surgeon. I think that was the beginning of it all. When I was twelve, I started experimenting with pain and such. I'm very much into ... read more

Septum @ Ars Subcutan

oday I got a septum piercing at Ars Subcutan in Mannheim, Germany. It's now about 6 hours old and still sore. :) I had had an information & counseling appointment on Saturday, three days ago, to clear all open questions, check if my nose was suitable for such a piercing and choose the jewelry. We then decided on a 10ga black anodized stainless steel retainer - Wulf (the piercer at Ars Subcutan) won't pierce septa (I was just told that's the correct plural for septum - so don't laugh please ;) at anything smaller than 12ga and since I want ... read more

Self-Navel Experience

ave wanted to have some part of me modified in some way for 3 or 4 years, but I never actually had the guts to do something. Until I met John. My best friend (John) and I had talked at length about what we could pierce, but since his dad is a preacher and my dad is the choir director at our church, we couldn't have our eyebrows or noses pierced or anything, so we decided to do our bellybuttons. note: both of our parents think piercing is a sin and a mark of slavery. and since we don't have ... read more

Nipple @ Snakebite

bout four weeks ago I decided to get my other nipple pierced, I had had my left nipple pierced for about five months at this stage and my over-active brain had exaggerated the pain and thus I had put off having it done for quite a while. I was in town with a friend of mine when I decided to get it done there and then, I had already decided what I wanted, a vertical barbell through my right nipple; there was a ring through my left nipple and somehow I never liked the idea of symmetry. In fact this ... read more

Navel @ Gauntlet LA

ince i was 12 i had been begging my parents to let me get my tongue pierced. they always said, "not until you're 18". i had also been bugging them to let me get my tongue pierced, which they really hate. anyway, they finally agreed to let me pierce my navel. i checked out a lot of places, to be sure to find a very clean studio. there was one i really liked, but they wouldn't pierce me until i'm 18. i decided i would go to the place my cousin gets pierced at, even though it's not all that ... read more

Self-Cutting Experience

As an artist, I have always been interested in anything concerning art. I enjoy not only drawing what I see, but, more importantly, creating things....looking to my imagination to guide me in what I do, in all aspects of my life. But, for many years, I have been searching for new ways to express myself through my art in new, different, and unusual ways....and that's when I discovered the wonderful world of Body Modification. Last year, a friend of mine introduced me to a new world through body modification....she was 18, and had already had her ears pierced in several ... read more

Eyebrow Experience @ Smokin' Tattoos

But in the last month, it has been my goal to get my eyebrow pierced. The place where Mary got her tongue (and most recently nipple) was called Smokin' Tattoos, in Kent. The piercer who she most recommended there was Donnie Brown. So it was Thursday, January 5th, and Mary told me that she would take me on Saturday. But the next day she informed me that she couldn't take me due to family problems. I was kind of disapointed, but what could I do? She told me, that Monday (9th) that she would take me sometime that week. Tuesday ... read more

a long awaited eyebrow piercing

have wanted to get my eyebrow pierced for about 4 years. Before I ever saw anybody that had actually had that done. I've always been fascinated by body piercings, and I just thought to myself " wow, my eyebrow would be a great place to get pierced. " My parents, however, disagreed. At this time I was only 14 years old. So I'd have to just wait. Finally, 4 long years later I was 18. I had to wait a few weeks after my birthday because I didn't have any ID. All the tattoo places in Memphis religiously ID everyone. ... read more
