My Christmas Present

'd been thinking about getting my nipple pierced for sometime after I got an earring in March 1996. I loved playing with my earring and thought "wouldn't it be good to be able to play with a nipple ring as well". After I broke up with my girlfriend in September, I thought the time had come - I needed a little self esteem boost and a symbol that I had 'moved on'. The thought of having someone new playing with it solidified my decision. I mentally set down the date - Christmas 1996. After checking out a few places, I ... read more

8g Tragus Dermal Punch Experience @ Infinite

ht now I am very happy to announce that I'm the brand spankin new owner of an 8g dermalled tragus! Not many people can say that, and no one that has ever been pierced at Infinite can, so says Jim Weber! He said that my traguses (or is it tragi?) are very large. At first I wasn't sure of what I wanted when I went in, ah the choices: tragus, anti-tragus, conch industrial, vertical lobe, hard to decide! Basically I really liked the look of the anti-tragus, and that was what I wanted. I showed both Jim and Jeff a ... read more

Why Some Ideas Are Better In Theory

In the PFIQ feature on Jon Cobb, there's a picture of the piercing in the nape of his neck. I was intrigued by this because it was cool as Hell. I never thought piercings of that nature were possible. Over time, I started to wonder what a full column of these piercings would look like. I have a form of scoleosis that causes my back to make kind of a "dead man's curve," with a mild curvature to the left near my shoulder blades, and a more prevalent curve to the right in my central and lower back. I always ... read more

NOSTRIL@14

i i wanna share my nostril piercing experience. Ever since i was in sixth grade i've always wanted my nose pierced. But everytime i'd ask my mom she always said "NO!" or "LEAVE ME THE F*** ALONE ABOUT THIS" Finally in the beginning of my freshman year, i found a picture of a tiny nostril piercing, and my mom agreed to let me. of coarse that picture was a lie, because i wanted bigger!!! so i called around, but no one pierced w/ a gun. and that scared me to death so after 2 weeks of calling almost every place ... read more

Sewing up my lobes.

first had my ears pierced when I was about 12, it being a "cool" thing do amongst our group. Well I guess it was for the rest but for me I felt it was something I needed to do for myself. Our different reasons seen when my friends were wearing a huge gold sleeper (with a VERY thin -ouch! - section going in the ear) in the single left lobe piercing, while I'm wearing 3 in the left and 2 in the right lobes with a couple of high cart piercing (is this that normal for a 14 year old ... read more

Tattoo Tumor

have been interested in body art since I was a child, it's been a thought process every day since I can remember, so I don't know when exactly it all began. I was pierced about ten years before I had seen anyone else doing it. (I pierced my nose) I was about fourteen and live in a very... fuckit, a very uptight community! I tattoed myself when I was fourteen but was not happy with it, so I waited til I was legal and got my first good one. For eleven years I've been collecting art, lots of beautiful ink ... read more

Ooooh....crunchy (my dermaled conch experience) (jon cobb)

on Cobb did my conch with a dermal punch, and I was unsure of what it would be like at first. Not nervous, just curious about a different experience (needles, I know well). I decided on a 4ga pyrex plug to start with, so he used a 2ga punch. I was very impressed with Jon's table side manner. He explained everything, sketched out placement options with my current jewelry included so I could see how it would look together, and was very concerned with my comfort and making this a good experience for me. After we decided on placement, he ... read more

Tragus, Nipples, and lobes oh my!

'm don't exactly fit the average piercee's profile. I'm a young college student who mostly shops at Old Navy & the Gap and I have relatively conservative parents who live in an upscale neighborhood. When you first look at me you wouldn't expect me to be that type of person, but I am, and quite proud of it! A little over a year ago I was introduced into the piercing scene. A friend of mine had his ears gauged, and a labret piercing. I wanted to get my right ear pierced anyways, (the left one was already done) so I ... read more

Eyebrow piercing at 15

I had been wanting to get my eyebrow pierced for a about a month. Last June i had gotten my tongue done and wanted to get something else. So I decided on my eyebrow. My birthday was coming up so i started asking my mom if i could get it done. She wasn't too cool with the idea of a "facial" piercing. She didn't even want me to get my tongue pierced. But my dad took me for that. I continued to bring it up to her and that it would be a nice b-day present for me but she ... read more

Stepping out from the crowd

almost fifty years of age most of my friends thought I was now going insane when I started talking yet again about an armband tattoo. My wife threatened divorce as usual and my fourteen year old son was incredulous. As has happened on times too numerous to remember over the last thirty odd years the desire would have faded except for the great resources of the internet and in particular your site and associated links. I heeded all the advice offered checked out several shops spoke to many tattoo artists, talked to people to find the right artist and finally ... read more
