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

Nipple Piercing in Boston

ple Piercing in Boston Nipple Piercing in Boston Date: Sat, 9 Nov 1996 14:38:51 -0500 (EST) The timing had finally worked out. I was going into Boston to get my nipples pierced. I was nervous, for two reasons: 1. I was running late and 2. I hadn't yet eaten that day (because I was running late). I arrived about fifteen minutes into my appointment...shaking like a leaf. As I was filling out my release forms, the woman behind the counter noticed that I was having problems writing straight. She asked me if I was okay. I explained that I was ... read more

T-Bar Nipple Studs

I have the "normal" horizontal piercing through my nipples, plus an extra one coming in from the front that connects to the horizontal piercing channel. (This means that I have a T shaped hole inside my nipples.) I am wearing a 10ga barbell through these piercings and they are well healed. Some of my female friends and women colleagues here know what I have been planning so I've had a bit hectic time explaining the procedures to them. Some didn't give up till they had seen my studs 8-) (they were interested in getting pierced themselves!). I've received encouraging whistlings ... read more

Yet another nipple piercing experience.

another nipple piercing experience. Yet another nipple piercing experience. It seems that I have always been fascinated by body art. When I was a small child in the 60's, I loved tattoos. I would squeal with delight whenever I found temporary tattoos in my box of Cracker Jack. I harassed my mother until she broke down and took the time to apply it for me. (Some of you may be too young to remember those tattoos; all that was needed to transfer them to the skin was a bit of water (or spit, if you were desperate.) It seemed like ... read more

Heidi's Tragus story

di's Tragus story The following is taken verbatim from my co-op's house journal (except for anything in italics). The story was written to be read by my 12 housemates, who were for the most part unfamiliar with bodypiercing at all. I planned for the tale to be unclear as to it's subject until the very end. Try reading it from the perspective of someone who has never heard of piercing before. This was my very first pierce, so I wasn't all that familiar with it myself before I went. My tale of Monday, Jan 2nd (1995) Okay, I showed up ... read more

African-American nipple history

ican-American nipple history Well... it's been two weeks since getting my nipples stretched I must say-- it's fabulous. Let me relate my own personal history of body modification and it would put things into perspective.. I'm a 32 year old professional black male who has actually never felt that great about my body.... I'm 5'8, 180, and in good shape but i've always had issues with the way I look. I will say however, that modifying my body has given me a new sense of confidence. I wanted to submit something here because it's rare to hear from African Americans ... read more

Stretching Your Lobes

Your Lobes Stretching Your Lobes This is just my advice - it's far from gospel truth :) Lobe stretching has been popular in nearly every tribal culture historically, and seems to be picking up in popularity in our anti- bodmod culture. It is very easy to do... (BTW This information pretty much applies to any fleshy tissue stretching.) GETTING STARTED You will need a fully healed, well placed piercing. By well placed I mean that it should be high up enough on the lobe that when stretched the bottom skin won't be thinner than the sides - this can cause ... 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

Nipple piercing by Raelyn Gallina

ple piercing by Raelyn Gallina Newsgroups: rec.arts.bodyart Subject: I got my nipple pierced last Sunday! Date: 24 Nov 1996 04:44:00 GMT Hello from a long time lurker, As the subject line mentions, I got my nipple pierced! Thanks to all of you who have posted information on the subject, especially those who joined the barbell/ring debate. I decided to go with a straight barbell (12 ga, sss, 3/4" long.) My nipple, pre-pierce and "at rest" measured 5/16" and I appreciated the extra room the first few days post pierce because my nip was running at about 11/16" and semi-erect. Today, ... read more
