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

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

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

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

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

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

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
