My First (as of yet) personal branding experience

For a couple of months or so I had been planning to create a zigzag pattern around my left bicep (I am right handed and since I was planning on doing the brand myself it was logical to choose the left arm) and I had pre-made the brand out of some unknown metal that I worked into a double V shape (VV) . I knew of a few people who had branded themselves with a coat hanger, but these brands appeared very spread out and they had not retained the desired form, so I assumed all that was necessary was ... 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

"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

My experiments with self-piercing

>My experiments with self-piercing I have done extensive experimenting with self-piercing. I became interested in body piercing when I was 17. I believe it happened when I saw someone with a nose or navel ring, I don't exactly remember. I immediately wanted to try it, and knowing very little managed to pierce my belly button with a needle. Withing the course of two days, it got infected, because I did not properly clean or sterilize it. The infection was not serious, but it did scare me away for awhile. I was drawn back to it like an addiction, mostly for ... read more

My nipple experience, problems...

>My nipple experience, problems... A long long time ago, I had decided I wanted to have my nipples pierced, but it took me a few years until I was 1: of legal age to have it done, and 2: got enough courage up to actually go do it. I finally decided just to go ahead and do it, as I was itching for a new piercing, and it just seemed it was about time to get over the fear I had of it. I've been pierced before, but somehow this just seemed like some unconquerable fear. Fortunately, I've found an ... read more

My Septum and Ear Piercing Experience

>My Septum and Ear Piercing Experience From a very young age I have always been interested in body art, I always loved looking at people who had piercings or tattoos and wish so much that I could do that. Originally I had hoped and intended to get by tongue pierced, but do to several complications, namely my tongue web being too far forward, and my mother's stubbornness (I'm 17). So I opted to get my ears and septum pierced, I had always liked the look of a pierced septum and think that stretched ears are totally fuckin' awesome, I had ... read more

An Introduction to Pocketing

Human beings have been decorating, playing with, and experimenting on their bodies for the three million years we have existed. That's a hell of a lot of time; most of us cannot really even grasp just how much. Jesus walked the Earth a million seconds ago, just 2000 years; three million years is just over one hundred and forty-nine million, nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety-nine TIMES that. The point? With that much time to figure it out (and probably not a hell of a lot else to do for much of it), odds are there's not ... read more
