Cutting at Modern American BodyArts

I have something to share with you, many people wonder why I do certain things.... It ranges everywhere from why did I get a tattoo, what would make me want to pierce my dick, and who in the world would let someone cut into them with a scalpel.... well I first want to clarify the most recent question I was asked.... "It's bad enough that you do all this sick shit to yourself... but why the hell did you write about it and let everyone in the world know about it?" I pondered that one for a minute... kind of ... read more

Cartilage Piercing Experience

tilage Piercing Experience Cartilage Piercing Experience Part 1 After reading BME and BME/Extreme for quite some time now and enjoying them so much, I thought I'd contribute what some may think is a routine experience. To me it wasn't. It is now almost 5 months after my first tatoo, my first venture into body mods besides the common double pierced lobes. My daughter and I both decided we wanted a cartilage pierce and would do it together, sort of as a "mother-daughter thing". She is 15 and is confined to a wheelchair due to cerebral palsy so I often check ... 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

Mr. Normal Suburbia

Normal Suburbia My experience into piercing, beyond the average ear gun procedures, is pretty limited. I had my left ear done twice about two years ago. I thought two holes in my ear was pretty cool and about as far as "Mr. Normal Suburbia" would go, especially at 40 plus. But for some reason I was always looking for a heavier, more substantial look. And those dainty little earrings sold in department and jewelry stores just didn't do it. Well after many of those thicker "looking" earrings I decided to call the local piercing store. He explained to me that ... read more

Australian navel piercing experience

tralian navel piercing experience For around ten months I had been fascinated with bodyarts and especially piercing. I've found it quite sensual to the point of being erotic, and had wanted to get my navel pierced for almost as long! So in the last few weeks I'd researched via the 'net about hygeine, aftercare etc, learning to understand the procedures and what to expect. But today I finally gained the courage to go to the piercing studio and "just look" at the jewellery, maybe talk to the piercer. Strangely (!) after 4 minutes staring at the glass showcase I'd chosen ... read more

Mehandi

ehandi Mehandi An Ancient Art For Modern Primitives By Michelle Delio My first passport to the wide, wonderful world of body art came in the form of a huge stack of back issues of "National Geographic" magazine. I immediately dove deeply into that yellow bordered stack and didn't surface again for a long, long time. My brothers, of course, used NatGeo as their introduction to the fascinating concept of naked breasts, while I was enraptured with the uninhibited way that the people pictured chose to decorate their bodies. The wonderful tribal scars of Africa, the tattooed Yakuzas of Japan, and ... 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

My Second Mhendi

Second Mhendi My Second Mhendi And I am finding alternative mediums that stain as the henna is most cumbersome to work with. The best thing I have found so far is sunless suntan lotion (ssl). I put it in a craft bottle with a tiny holed tip and use it that way. I have done my foot and ankle that way... but am not exactly sure how to explain the setting process... not sure if leaving it on does it or if squirting in in the design, then washing it off will do it. It's harder in a way since ... 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

Dry Ice Branding

Ice Branding What happened is, one night I had some dry ice on hand for other purposes, and I thought about how the BME FAQs didn't have much information on using dry ice for scarification. Well, I was kind of curious myself, and I thought I could spare a patch of skin for the sake of science - so I decided I'd just find out for myself! What I did was to pick a spot on the inside of my left calf, a spot selected less for aesthetics than for the fact that it was easy to see and work ... read more
