Spinal Piercing Experience

ITLE>Spinal Piercing Experience spinal piercing experience by Brian Chambers i discovered the spinal piercing while browsing through the body modification e-zine. i was attracted by the way it elegantly crossed the spine, punctuating the arch of the lower back and, especially with the double pierce, suggesting the delicate structure of the spine itself. i also liked the subtlety of embedding the jewelry deep within the tissue of the back, peeking out like buried treasure in the ocean floor. the jewelry itself consists of two 12 gauge barbells, constructed specifically for this kind of piercing from surgical stainless steel. my piercer, ... read more

Navel Piercing Experience

el Piercing Experience It's been two years since I had my navel pierced, but the memory hasn't faded any, and I know that it never will. I still haven't decided whether I prefer spontaneous events to planned ones, but this was probably the most spontaneous thing I've ever done. I'd had an interest in doing something drastic, purely for shock value. I was only sixteen, so when my parents said no to the idea of a nose ring, I seriously had to consider their opinion. The idea of a belly-button ring hadn't really appealed that much to me, there isn't ... read more

My nipple stretching experience

le>My nipple stretching experience I originally had my nipple pierced in November of 1996. It was a very intense experience - as painful as my reading other peoples' accounts on BME had led me to believe. But the pain was only momentary and it settled to a dull aching which lasted for a few hours. I was very happy with this new addition to my body - the look of a piece of metal going through my left nipple was (and still is) an amazing sight and one I don't believe I will ever tire of looking at. But one ... read more

Playing with Fire

By Michelle Delio One second of exposure to searing hot metal, perhaps a sizzling sound and the thinnest wisp of smoke, and the first strike is done. It's the beginning of a piece of art that will be formed from flames and scars. Branding isn't new. In western cultures it was normally used as a means of marking criminals and slaves. The French branded a "Fleur de Lis" into the shoulder of a criminal, a mark meant to turn the bearer into an outcast from civilized culture forever. But then they got a little carried away and started branding Protestants ... read more

The Shifting Urban Body: In the Culture of Recognition

Shifting Urban Body: In the Culture of Recognition The Shifting Urban Body: In the Culture of Recognition. Copyright &copy 1995 Mike McCabe On their voyages across the surface of the earth, 15th and 16th century maritime explorers referred to the unknown regions of the globe as Terra-Incognita or uncharted territory. They roamed the surface of the world blindly, unaware of the significance of its contour. Without the luxury of a map, early explorers had no meaningful framework that could orient them in their travels, there was no top or bottom to anything. There was nothing but the stars to help ... 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

Biker Nipple

I made and appointment at "Experience the Beauty" in wintery Winnipeg. A guy from work and his wife wanted to come and watch as the wife was thinking about getting hers done and wanted ... 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
