First Tattoo Experience:)

ot my first tattoo when I was 18. I had wanted one for several years..but wanted to wait till I could do it legally, and also my parent's are very much against tattoos so I could not get consent from them. I figured waiting awhile wouldn't hurt me..other than the fact I was dying to get the tattoo! Well my 18th birthday came and went and I did not have my tattoo. I simply did not have a good oportunity to get it. I live in South Carolina and tattooing is not legal so I couldn't just drive down the ... read more

Better Late Than Never

suspect that many readers of this site and of rec.arts.bodyart either are or have been a college student. I am certainly no exception. Until I went to university, my experience of tattoos and piercing had been limited to ex-navy guys with blurry anchors on their forearm and studs in their ears. I had no wish to look like an assistant at a 3-year olds finger painting lesson and by the late 80s, ear studs on guys were hardly the mark of a rebel. (Being a rebel is especially difficult with understanding parents) When I started University, I simultaneously discovered both ... read more

EDGE PLAY

k was with me last night and I was able to attend the cutting/scarring demonstration that Keith Alexander presented as part of "Edge Play", this week's program at the GMSMA (Gay Male S/M Activists) here in beautiful downtown New York City. Keith began with a concise and informative 15-minute talk, covering the safety measures (copious), legality (barely), and aesthetics of cutting. Anyone who's met Keith in person will be happy to know that he's the same confident and expert self when talking to a group as he is one-on-one. He took a few quick questions from the audience before introducing ... read more

Deep Muscle Arm Piercing

ello, my name is David and I live in Sweden. If you don't know anything about Sweden then all you need to know it that it is a small beautiful and cold country. Well, the thing I want to tell you (and the members of BME) is what happend to me two years ago. I went out for a walk in one of Stockholms many nice parks where I got mugged. I didn't't have any money so probably this robber got pissed of and as he left he shot me in the back. Or not exactly in the back but ... read more

The Tongue...

I started having my body pierced at the beginning of 1997. First I had a frenum done... that was a trip because I had never even thought about having it done..or any piercing for that matter. I was just sitting at home at around 6:00pm and thought "hmm, I think I want my dick pierced". I told my wife, she was a bit astonished... but by 7:30, Bear, the piercer at Forbidden Fruit had shanked me. (BTW, I highly recommend Bear, he was the guy on the cover of Body Play just a bit ago with the rack). Then, about ... read more

Soul Cleansing by Keith Alexander

n Wednesday, October 8, 1997, I experienced, 'I' being my body on the physical and 'I' being my soul on the ethereal/spiritual level, an hour and a half of pure ecstasy and physical enlightenment. I had experimented with pleasure piercing before meeting Keith Alexander. Through a mutual learning experience, a friend and I had pinned me with as many as sixty-eight, twenty and twent-two gauge needles from above the genitals to the nipples. I found out about Keith via the internet and after meeting with him, quickly recognized his level of enthusiasm and professionalism for the art of body play. ... read more

WHY?

>Why? Possibly the most frequent question asked of body modifiers. We all have our own answers ranging from the filpant to the metaphysical, we answer depending on who we are speaking to and the mood we are in. What struck me having read Bme for a while was not only were the answers (the true ones if there are such things) unique to each of us but they are unique to each modification as well. So here are the reasons I had my peircings done. It all started a couple of years ago, I was earning my living as a ... read more

YAY!! MARNIE FINALLY GOT HER TONGUE PIERCED!

begged and begged, and finally they gave in. My dad finally agreed to take me to get my tongue pierced. I'm 16 and they wont pierce minors in Arizona without an adult, and you cannot be under 16 to get pierced at HTC. I got my tongue pierced at HTC of Tempe on October 10th 1997. I did a lot of research on tongue piercing and other piercings, i do suggest this, because i wasn't nervous at all even when i was sitting in the chair. I first went in and signed all the papers and the woman picked out ... read more

TA MOKO

size=+2>TA MOKO Moko, what kind of image appears when moko is mentioned, a native man in a far away country with a full facial tattoo, but how do we really see this form of decoration? And what does it mean to those who wear it? The art of moko (Ta Moko, the art of Maori Tattooing) has been in the Maori culture for over a thousand years, and was to the Maori the first form of carving, it preceded wood carving, and the first wood carving designs were taken from moko patterns, the first documentation of moko was when Captain ... read more

Nipple Stretching Experience

ell, it's been one full week since my first stretching, and I couldn't be happier. I had both nipples pierced by Jay at Experience the Beauty Body Design in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada about 6 months ago, which was a wonderful experience in itself, and it finally came time to start putting some decent-sized jewelry in. Before I get into the details of that, I want to say how happy I have been with Jay (he has pierced my tongue and both my nipples). This is an opinion shared enthusiastically by every single one of his clients I have ever spoken ... read more
