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

Various motivations for lip sewing:

>Various motivations for lip sewing: Religious/spiritual sacrifice/devotion primarily practiced among ascetic holy men in India (Sadhus) and in this case the sutures are relatively permanent (i.e. if the sutures rot over time, they may be replaced). Confrontational Performance (i.e. see Artaud's essay on the subject or read Hakim Bey's Poetic Terrorism) For example, the lip sewing that Daemon did on Mikey in 1993 was a social commentary on the issue of censorship (specifically: the police raid and confiscation of art and subsequent charge of pornography of the artist) and how we are being silenced by the policies of our right-wing ... 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

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

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

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

A Brief Non-Linear Piercing History

rief Non-Linear Piercing History A Brief Non-Linear Piercing History The purpose of this list is to dispel certain popular myths and misinformation circulated about different body piercings and to clarify terms wherever possible.

Please note that many of the references supplied by "the father of modern piercing" Doug Malloy (a.k.a. Richard Symington) cannot be verified and should be considered folklore. If you know of any historical or ethnographic references that are not ... 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

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

ence Date: Tue, 01 Oct 1996 02:05:41 -0400 From: Luis G. SNUG EXPERIENCE OK well I was at the Philly R.A.B. Munch and was itching to get pierced once more. I wanted a "hard core" cartilage piercing (as I call em). I already had two daiths, so I wanted something that is not very common, as more and more people in my area (DC) were getiing Daiths. So I decided to get a Snug I had fallen in love with the pics of the snug on BME, so I said "I gotta have one". Went in and talked to Jim ... read more
