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

Nipple Piercing Experience at Bodyworks

ple Piercing Experience at Bodyworks Nipple Piercing Experience By Russ (russ@reflex.sonnet.co.uk) 3rd January 1997 Wow! I've just got back from having my nipple pierced, and I couldn't wait to pass on the experience. I've been thinking about getting my nipple pierced for a while now, as I've always enjoyed it when my girlfriend would play with them, and getting one of them pierced always seemed like a good idea.... But, I'm a mere beginner at this piercing lark, the only other piercing I've had done before now by the proper piercing method was a tragus piercing in my left ear ... read more

MY LIP EXPERIENCE

LIP EXPERIENCE MY LIP EXPERIENCE BY SKOTT The last day of August, 1997; I, my parents, my best friend, and my brother all went down to Philly to go to Warrior on South Street. I decided to go to Warrior because it was recommended to me by many people I had talked to, "Warrior's the cleanest in the area" they said, "Warrior does a good job" they said, "Warrior's the best place around" they said. They were wrong. When I arrived, there was almost no wait. I went right up and taled to the piercer on duty at the time ... read more

My Personal Hand Experiences

Hand Experiences My Hand Experiences My Personal Hand Web Experience THE PIERCING PROCESS First the area was marked, and I moved my hand around to try and find the deepest possible comfortable placement without hitting the muscle. Then a small flashlight was used to check for blood vessels, and the area was cleaned. The a clamp was applied and the holes lined up. The piercing was done in 14ga, and didn't hurt that much, but it did sting a great deal. Then the jewellery was slid in - a straight 1/2" 14ga barbell, which probably is easier to deal with ... read more

My First Mhendi

First Mhendi My First Mhendi So I am now typing with my left hand delightfully decorated a yummy shade of sienna. It looks so pretty I just keep staring at it... it's almost hypnotic! I had gone to 3 Indian stores Thursday but wanted to go to the one a couple of minutes away from my home... so did that this morning. I found the most gentle woman working there... one who took over an hour showing me around the small store, describing the different foods and such... and then, sharing her knowledge of mhendi with me. Her daughter, who ... read more

Nipple Piercing @ Universal

ple Piercing @ Universal I don't know why exactly I decided to get my nipple pierced. I'd always been casually interested in piercing, but hadn't ventured any further than a couple of holes in the earlobe (done with...boo, hiss...the gun). At one time a friend had put a stud through the cartiledge in my upper ear, but I took it out after a few months. I'd been thinking about getting another hole or two put in my body, but I knew it couldn't be too visible, as I'm constantly dealing with rather conservative types here in Hollywood. Anyway, while visiting ... 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
