Various motivations for lip sewing:

>Various motivations for lip sewing: Religious/spiritual sacrifice/devotion primarily practiced among ascetic holy men in India (Sadhus) and in this case the sutures are relatively permanent (i.e. if the sutures rot over time, they may be replaced). Confrontational Performance (i.e. see Artaud's essay on the subject or read Hakim Bey's Poetic Terrorism) For example, the lip sewing that Daemon did on Mikey in 1993 was a social commentary on the issue of censorship (specifically: the police raid and confiscation of art and subsequent charge of pornography of the artist) and how we are being silenced by the policies of our right-wing ... read more

Horrible Nipple expierience & re-pierce @ London Piercing Clinic

rible Nipple expierience & re-pierce @ London Piercing Clinic Horrible Nipple expierience & re-pierce @ London Piercing Clinic I was always interested in Body adornments, and after a lot of "do I really want it?" finally decided to have my nipples pierced about 3 years ago. I had it done by my then local tattooist, a woman who had done some excellent, very professional work on me and whom I trusted to be able to perform a good piercing as well. Unfortunately, she was a much worse piercer then she is a tattooist, and from what people told me later ... read more

Cutting at Modern American BodyArts

I have something to share with you, many people wonder why I do certain things.... It ranges everywhere from why did I get a tattoo, what would make me want to pierce my dick, and who in the world would let someone cut into them with a scalpel.... well I first want to clarify the most recent question I was asked.... "It's bad enough that you do all this sick shit to yourself... but why the hell did you write about it and let everyone in the world know about it?" I pondered that one for a minute... kind of ... read more

A Brief Non-Linear Piercing History

rief Non-Linear Piercing History A Brief Non-Linear Piercing History The purpose of this list is to dispel certain popular myths and misinformation circulated about different body piercings and to clarify terms wherever possible. My list focuses on piercings that appear in the ethnographic or historical literature. Recent piercings like the Madison, Christina, Cleopatra, Madonna, Nasion and others have not been included. Please note that many of the references supplied by "the father of modern piercing" Doug Malloy (a.k.a. Richard Symington) cannot be verified and should be considered folklore. If you know of any historical or ethnographic references that are not ... read more

Nipple by Muff

ple by Muff Hello. I had my nipple pierced last summer on the day that I was due to go on holiday to Majorca. I figured that a week in the sun and with regular swims in the sea it would probably get a good start healing. Well I went to my local tattoo/piercing studio in Brownhills in the West Midlands where I'd already had a tattoo done a couple of months previously. Muff, the tattooist and piercer, said he could fit me in right away. So, I hopped up onto the reclining leather chair and took off my t-shirt. ... read more

Large Upper Ear Piercing Done Using A Dermal Punch

Ear Piercing Done Using A Dermal Punch Large Upper Ear Piercing Done Using A Dermal Punch Stretching lobes is currently very popular, and is a very easy thing to do. However, stretching the cartilage in the upper ear for large holes is nearly impossible and would leave a very deformed ear, often due to keloiding. To get nice large gauge piercings through upper ear cartilage a good way is to use a dermal punch, which is essentially a circular razor blade (like a really good hole-punch) which can easily remove a circle of tissue. It should be noted that when ... read more

Nipple piercing at Extremus

ple piercing at Extremus Nipple piercing at Extremus About two years ago, I began to pursue and develope my interest in bondage, s/m and piercing. For a long time I have been in denial about what I enjoy and who I am personally and sexually. For a long time, I've dreamed about piercings and wondered if they highlight sensations or actually deadened the senses. I have always wanted to have a PA and at least one nipple pierced. For the last year, I have become involved with a lover who knew that I was considering being pierced. We often talked ... read more

BME BOD MOD SQUICK

BOD MOD SQUICK Pat Fish's inadvertant piercing Seems like the stories behind medical events are never quite as dramatic as we might wish. There I was, up on an antique stepstool I inherited from my Grandmother, putting lettuce in a fishtank in my tattoo studio. Next thing I knew, a misstep had propelled me to the cement floor and I was an industrial statistic with a bone shattered into 20 pieces. The two inches of radius next to the wrist bones were visible in the x-rays as a mass of shards, and I was fortunate indeed to have access to ... read more

Switching to the role of the piercer

tching to the role of the piercer My ex-boyfriend was rather unadorned and unhappy with his condition. For quite some time he had wanted piercings but was unable to get them because he was a minor and his mother would not consent. So, lacking much of an alternative, he turned to me. I was planning a trip to Atlanta and he asked me to return with a piercing needle and jewelry so that i could pierce his earlobes. I came back prepared to pierce when he finished performing in the community play (it would be rather difficult to portray an ... read more

Mehandi

ehandi Mehandi An Ancient Art For Modern Primitives By Michelle Delio My first passport to the wide, wonderful world of body art came in the form of a huge stack of back issues of "National Geographic" magazine. I immediately dove deeply into that yellow bordered stack and didn't surface again for a long, long time. My brothers, of course, used NatGeo as their introduction to the fascinating concept of naked breasts, while I was enraptured with the uninhibited way that the people pictured chose to decorate their bodies. The wonderful tribal scars of Africa, the tattooed Yakuzas of Japan, and ... read more
