Ear Stretching Experience

Stretching Experience My stretching experience, thus far. I first got interested in stretching my ear lobe after seeing a friend of mine with a 2-gauge acrylic plug in his ear. I had previously seen stretchings of an inch or so, and Masaii tribal stretchings of more than 3 inches, and thought that they were sort of tasteless, but when I saw my friend, I was immediatly enthralled. My only hesitation was, "what will it look like when I'm 50 years old and no longer have anything in the hole?" and "will I be able to get jobs with a half-inch ... read more

"Hell yes it hurt"

t hurt" Subject: "Did it hurt"? "Hell yes it hurt" One man's nipple piercing. From: "Ogre" ([email protected]) Newsgroups: rec.arts.bodyart Date: 30 Aug 1996 14:57:59 GMT It has been storming everyday for about a week here. Which is o.k. with me, the rain is sort of like nature's own symphony and is very soothing. And then yesterday when I awoke with the sun shining bright and the birds singing, I knew that this was the perfect day for a piercing. I got up showered, had some breakfast, and gathered all the piercing FAQs that I have printed and read all again ... read more

Nipple @ Inkslinger's Ball '95

ple @ Inkslinger's Ball '95 Nipple @ Inkslinger's Ball '95 My nipple piercing experience at the '95 inkslingers ball went like this.

I have appox. 75 hours of tattoo work know but still had no piercings. We got there early so we went to look at the other artists and piercers set-up at the ball, it is a big show with ... read more

A note from Patrick regarding the chest piercings

Patrick regarding the chest piercings "Another couple of chest bars, what I call the - Mega Peck - piercings." "The horizontal bars are made of 4mm thick PTFE (polytetrafluroethalene), with 316 drilled and tapped balls. The threads on the balls cut their own threads, and the bars are easily shortened/trimmed with a scalpel, or a pair of toenail clippers. The Mega Peck's are normally done at 4mm X 4.5 inches. I anaethatise the entrance and exit marks only, provided the needles and insertion pins go under the skin there is no real discomfort." "I have discontinued doing the vertical bars ... 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

More ear piercings...

e ear piercings... Well, my ears are finished. For the moment. I now have six piercings on the left side and three on the right side. No particular reason why there's twice as many on the left, but I had a bizarre conversation with some one who pointed out to me that the way I had my ears pierced made me 33% gay. I pointed out to him that his statement made him 100% stupid. Some of the piercings I've already written about and are already on the BME (helix, tragus, antitragus, lower conch -all in the left ear). I'd ... read more

Nipple @ Nothing Shocking

ple @ Nothing Shocking I had always wanted to or at least thought about piercing my nipple, but I never could really get the guts to go and do it. I had heard that a nipple piercing was one of the more painful ones, and I had actually tried it with a safety pin when I was in high school (I know that wasn't the smartest thing but I was a young punker), so I knew it would hurt. However, the idea of the pain is what eventually made me do it. I had been burned by a particular girl ... 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

8ga --> 2ga Ear Piercing

--> 2ga Ear Piercing 2 weeks ago I had my ears repierced, as my original (gun) pierces were unsuitable for stretching. My piercer, Danny, suggested an initial needle pierce at 8 ga, followed by an immediate stretch to 2 ga. So I went down to Polymorph (Newtown, Australia), and I was shown the 2 ga plugs I was soon to wear - I got a little apprehensive, they looked so huge. But I decided to go through with it, and the plugs were put in the autoclave. Danny marked my ears, commenting on their huge stretching potential :) Then he ... read more
