joshua's decision

My personal decison to be branded and tattooed, as a Jew January 19, 1996 by joshua Well, in addition to my opinions about burial and body modification, I suppose I should explain my personal interest in this discussion. I have multiple body modifications, including piercings, several tattoos and two multiple strike brands. Some of these have nothing in particular to do with my Judaism, but three of them do. On May 1st, 1995, Raelyn Gallina performed two brands on me. One is an armband of alternating chevrons and dots. The other is a simple, 6 strike brand, consisting of 6 ... read more

"Hell yes it hurt"

t hurt" Subject: "Did it hurt"? "Hell yes it hurt" One man's nipple piercing. From: "Ogre" (Ogre@Worldnet.att.net) Newsgroups: rec.arts.bodyart Date: 30 Aug 1996 14:57:59 GMT It has been storming everyday for about a week here. Which is o.k. with me, the rain is sort of like nature's own symphony and is very soothing. And then yesterday when I awoke with the sun shining bright and the birds singing, I knew that this was the perfect day for a piercing. I got up showered, had some breakfast, and gathered all the piercing FAQs that I have printed and read all again ... read more

My Personal Hand Experiences

Hand Experiences My Hand Experiences My Personal Hand Web Experience THE PIERCING PROCESS First the area was marked, and I moved my hand around to try and find the deepest possible comfortable placement without hitting the muscle. Then a small flashlight was used to check for blood vessels, and the area was cleaned. The a clamp was applied and the holes lined up. The piercing was done in 14ga, and didn't hurt that much, but it did sting a great deal. Then the jewellery was slid in - a straight 1/2" 14ga barbell, which probably is easier to deal with ... read more

Nipple @ Nothing Shocking

ple @ Nothing Shocking I had always wanted to or at least thought about piercing my nipple, but I never could really get the guts to go and do it. I had heard that a nipple piercing was one of the more painful ones, and I had actually tried it with a safety pin when I was in high school (I know that wasn't the smartest thing but I was a young punker), so I knew it would hurt. However, the idea of the pain is what eventually made me do it. I had been burned by a particular girl ... read more

My Brandings

From: Greg K. As a startlingly tenatious misanthrope [one would hope to get over the annoyance prompted by social interaction but, as I say, tenatious] I have never been able to deal with the trust associatied with tattooing; "They have never slipped before so I WILL be the first". This mistrust has prompted many a session spent pooring over TATTOO magazine trying to figure a way to do bodyart to myself, by myself. Let me tell you, MIRRORS DONT WORK WELL FOR THIS. Via this path I came to branding; I can design it, plan it and DO it myself! ... read more

cing at Modern American BodyArts Nipple piercing at Modern American BodyArts This is the story of my first piercing in in Brooklyn NY! For the past month I had the idea of getting my right nipple pierced, don't know why just something I wanted to do. I'd heard that it hurts like hell and I for one am not a person that can deal with pain (I pass out from getting my finger pricked for a blood test). I asked a friend of mine what the procedure was and she scared me a bit, all I could think was that ... read more
