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

madison piercing.

ison piercing. Here is my personal experience with a madison piercing. My partner and I were planning on going into The Gates of Hell, in Troy, NY, to get a new barbell for her tongue- she had had it pierced there by Jeff, and was ready to have it downsized. I wasn't planning on having anything done at the time, but I was considering buying a curved barbell to replace the captive bead ring in my navel once it heals completely, so I went along. Jeff had done two piercings for me before- a cartilage pierce and a rook. We ... read more

Piercing, politics, and plans.

rcing, politics, and plans. Piercing, politics, and plans. My first piercing was done after three days of thought. I was working away from home with two piercing devotees, and one of them offered to do my nipple for me - something I had always wondered about having. As someone who has the pain threshold of a small child, and a fear of needles that borders on the paranoid, body piercing would have been the last thing anyone would have expected me to go for. As it was, the deed was done. I sat, shirt off, while he marked up my ... read more

Tragus Experience

gus Experience Back in the summer of '95, I went to visit a friend in Las Vegas who was in the air force. A bucnch of us decided to go to the raceway there, to pass some time. While we were there, there were a bunch of guys sitting on the bleachers right in front of us and one of them had the most unique piercing I had ever seen! Of course I now know that this is a tragus piercing or as he called it a "dragon tongue piercing". I said to everyone there that I was going to ... 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

Nipple Piercing Experience

cing Experience Date: Thu, 26 Sep 1996 15:52:31 -0400 From: M. Nipple Piercing Experience Some years back, I was interested in sun dancing. This is a native American Indian rite which involves men piercing their breasts, attaching a tether to the object throught the piercing and leaning back against the tether which was attached to a pole. The men would enter into a meditative state rythmically dancing to drum beating. This would last for a few days until the piercings would tear through. When I read of this I decided to pierce myself in honor of this rite and pierced ... read more

Falling into the Abyss ...

ling into the Abyss ... Friedrich Nietzsche wrote "Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster; and when you look long into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you". Like most quotations, this can mean many things to many people. To me it sums up my journey into piercing in a neat little package. Bear with me for this lengthy ramble and you'll find out why. In so many personal accounts of piercing I've read words to the effect of "I was always drawn towards piercing". It's become almost a ... read more

Bad piercing experience

g experience Bad piercing experience This is a warning to anyone thinking about getting their cartilege piercings done somewhere that uses the gun. I was stupid enough not to do any research on piercing before I went to the mall to get it done (I have two upper ear cartilege piercings in each ear). The store I went to would not use anything but the gold-plated earrings for the upper ear, they said it was because it was more "natural" and my body would accept it better. I knew this was bullshit, because I had had surgical steel plates in ... read more
