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

Bad piercing experience...

piercing experience... Bad piercing experience... I had a bad piercing experience. I was at a tent during a bazar (spelling?), and they were offering $25.00 nipple piercings. I thought, what the hell and decided to bite the bullet and take it. I walked into the back of the tent with the piercing "specialist" (I use the term lightly) and was shown a variety of rings that I could choose from. I chose a small gauge silver wire with a small bead on it. I thought, "Hey, if I don't like it, I can take it out." The piercing itself was ... read more

Anti-Tragus

i-Tragus Friday, April 11 was a great day in the history of what is turning out to be Bobby's ear project. Granted, there are only two pieces of jewelry, (industrial with a 14 gauge 1-3/8 inch SS barbell, and my new anti-tragus with a 7/16 inch 14 gauge Niobium CBR) but I've got the itch, and so it seems that I'm just getting started. Anyway, I was looking for pictures for a while before hand of anti-tragus piercings with little luck, and of course, after I finally head down to Perforations and did it, BME is updated that very same ... read more

Navel @ Gauntlet

el @ Gauntlet March 20 was the day! After years of exploring body modification and having read the ReSearch book about a hundred times, I finally got the courage to get my first piercing. I must say, that ever since my childhood I fancied to get an earring, but never went for it due to social pressures. So, this day really was something I have worked on for a long time. It was difficult for my to choose what kind of piercing should be the first. I knew, that once I get over it and get the first one, I ... read more

Nipple Piercing Experience

cing Experience Date: Thu, 26 Sep 1996 20:29:45 -0700 From: RM Nipple Piercing Experience I'd never much been into bm's. In fact, I never even really thought about them. To go further and be ruthlessly honest, when I did consider them, I always wondered why anyone would want to hack around with their body like that. It's amazing how your ideas can change. Before I begin, let's set the scene. I'm gay. Needless to say, I have a load of gay friends. Most of the gays I know are pretty adventurous people in some respects - let's face it, we ... read more

ABOUT BRANDING

I'd like to share my views and experience regarding branding. I've been involved in this form of BodyArt for the past three years and have performed over thirty brands totaling over two hundred strikes. Training as a piercer gave me a solid grasp of sterile technique and thousands of piercings taught me how to calm apprehensive clients. A little more research into burn first aid firmed up my aftercare approach. Anybody seriously considering piercing, tattooing, cutting or branding another humans flesh, in the name of art, should be prepared to study and practice. I'd like to thank Raelyn Gallina, Lance ... read more
