Do your ears hang low?- A (long) stretching experience

efore I get started, I want to give a disclaimer. I do not advise anyone to use my methods or time spans when stretching their lobes. I know I went too fast, but I also know my body very well, and these methods workedfor me, without any difficulties that I consider serious. They may not do the same for you. Thank you, drive through }:). With that out of the way, I can get on with my experience. I just recently finished stretching my ear lobes to 1" in slightly over one year. Last year, I decided that the french ... read more

My Secret Nipples

I used to think that tattoos and piercings were disgusting. I was raised to think that way. My ears were gun-pierced when I was 9 months old, at the pediatrician's office. I went through a time where I didn't even want to wear earrings. Now I generally sport a stud with a chain on one side and a chained stud and earcuff on the other, much to the dislike of my parents. Soon, I hope to add at least a few more ear pierces. When I was 12 or so, my cousin went and got his tongue pierced, in three ... read more

The Moko

b>Note: at the end of this article is a rebuttal I saw an ad for Polaroid recently that consisted of a polaroid picture of a guy with a full facial moko (as well as a bald head and what appears to be at least a 4 ga hoop through his earlobe). The copy is a dialogue between two parents about their daughter's new boyfriend, the picture of whom they were about to receive, and about how maybe they should invite him to Thanksgiving. Now, the implications of this ad are obvious; won't the parents be shocked and dismayed to see ... read more

Self Branding Experience

First off, I'd like to declare that I don't endorse, nor do I encourage self-branding. It's probably much safer and much more sanitary to have a brand done professionally. The reason I chose to do my brand myself is just because of my nature. I have this thing where I feel uncomfortable having it done by someone else. (All 4 of my piercings were done by myself using a sewing needle and the mirror.) I have been interested in body modification since I was about 10 or 12 years old. I always wanted to get my ears pierced like the ... read more

"A Lifetime Of Fascination" (Cont'd)

s been almost a year since my last update and I must say I have not been idle. I've made some additions on a couple of fronts. The shaft bead count is now up to 14! Using the same 1/4" titanium beads, we did eight at once last January ('97). These were done with the "scalpel" method, where a single incision was made and a pocket created with another tool. Then the beads were slipped into the incision and moved right on down the pocket. I've ended up with a row of 4 on each side of the urethra on ... read more

Earlobe Stretching

I have played around with piercing my ears for many years and have had almost every portion pierced at one point or another. This was usually done somewhat temporarily as my preferred method was to just run another safety pin through wherever I felt like having a piercing at the time. Eventually I stopped wearing earrings for awhile because of my increasing involvement in physical activities which made them liabilities (karate, rugby, etc.). This resulted in all but the two oldest and most used holes (one in each lobe) closing up completely. Late in '96 I began to feel that ... read more

A Step by Step Guide of Getting a Navel Piercing

TITLE>A Step by Step Guide of Getting a Navel Piercing A Step by Step Guide of Getting a Navel Piercing (Holly's First Piercing Experience) Here I am, with my shirt rolled up in the front, letting the Piercer clean and apply local anesthetic to my belly button. Note the latex gloves -- I wouldn't go anywhere that did not enforce sanitary conditions and did not comply with the city/province/state/country's health laws/regulations. Always, ALWAYS research your piercing/tattoo parlour -- go in and talk with the artists there. Ask questions, even stupid ones. A good piercer/tattooist will answer EVERY question, and should ... read more

My Nipple@Perforations

n the recent months I have undergone changes. My first piercing experience was at Perforations in Washington D.C. I had been thinking about getting my nipple pierced and one day I just said what the hell and went to Perforations by way of the Metro Rail. I arrived at Perforations and met with Jason. He talked to me in a very professional manner and proceeded to explain the Nipple Piercing. Once I picked out the Jewelry (A 5/8 12 Black Nobium Ring) I began filling out the paper work. Then all went really bad. They asked me for my Drivers ... read more

Nipple Piercing by Ardvark of r.a.b.

fter frequenting rec.arts.bodyart for a while, I still had many questions about piecings, so looking for someone knowledgeable, I e-mailed Ardvark, the r.a.b. FAQ maintainer, and soon began e-mailing each other back and forth over the course of almost a year, and I credit her for a great majority of my piercing knowledge, however she still lived in VA at the time, and I was in WA, but I wanted someday to be pierced by her. When she gave me word she would be moving to the San Francisco area, I was thrilled! During my senior year in high school, ... read more

I have an appointment to have my nipple pierced?

"Hi! I have an appointment to have my nipple pierced?" I said brightly to the man standing behind the counter. He smiled welcomingly and asked if it would be my first. When I told him yes, he went into his speel of the health and feeding of a piercing, closing with proper cleaning. "We recommend you should use a cleaning agent. Do you have any Hiberclens?" He asked. "And are you allergic?" My research had not covered this and I stood there looking a little perplexed. I was armed with a lot of book knowledge and little else. Actually, nothing ... read more
