My awkward industrial

I never saw the appeal about industrials when everyone around me started getting one - it looked bulky and crude to me, but when my right ear started to look far too empty with its  standard lobes, suddenly the idea started to spark my interest and with some massive browsing around, looking at industrial bars and photos of people with healed industrial projects I saw the beauty in it. How hipster of me. So I gave myself a few weeks to lose interest in the idea because that's how I roll - and when I didn't, I decided to order ... read more

From 6mm lobes to 6mm lobes – a tale of irony.

This all started way back in 2010 when I discovered that I had far too much scar tissue to stretch my ears properly, from years of mistreating them. It took me a while but I found a gentleman who was apparently proficient in ear lobe scalpelling; my first scalpelling experience is covered in in this experience from 2011. After that I really should have known something was wrong because we both ended up with acrylic in our freshly cut lobes. After a few months being at 10mm, I decided that I wanted to be bigger and consulted Dan again on possibly ... read more

My Navel, Finally

I had wanted my navel pierced for long time. I am turning 26, and if memory serves I was 12 when I first really felt like that was something I wanted. This was something I've wanted for a long time, and haven't done for myself until now. As an adult, I kept telling myself that I had to lose 10 pounds, 20 pounds, 30 pounds, etc. until I would do it. This had gone on for years and years! It seemed like a good incentive, but I came to realize that I would never be happy enough with my body ... read more

Stretching Ear Lobe to 8g

Out of the 4 lobe piercings I have, I have successfully stretched three of them multiple times.  The largest is now 8g and began in a piercing that I've had for about 17 years now.  My mother took me to the mall when I was about 10 and I had my left lobe pierced with a gun.  Although there were never any major complications it remained a nusiance for the 2ish years that I wore it.  Knowing what I know now I'm not surprised.  Being young my mom did most of the aftercare for me including twisting the stud around ... read more

Tragus Piercing

Roughly three months ago I decided to finally get my tragus on my left ear pierced.  I first noticed the piercing years ago at bars and clubs, mostly on girls, and I found it very attractive but always regarded it as more of a feminine look.  At the time I wasn't much into piercings; I'd had my left lobe done when I was around 9 or 10 at the mall but after about a year of my mom treating it all the wrong ways (getting it done with a gun, using conventional jewelry, cleaning with alcohol, etc) I got tired ... read more

Crossing a Bridge

It was about time to get yet another piercing added to my little collection. After some cranky healing time for my inverse navel (which still is having issues), the piercing bug bit me yet again. This time I wanted a vertical philtrum, yummy! My mind was so set, I told myself friday I would do it! However, after a long day at Wonderland and my piercer closing at 8, it wasn't looking too well so... Saturday! So Saturday, May 26th came around and I slept over at my friend Kat's the night before. She's a fanatic like me so I ... read more

Living In A Frowning World

Let me start by saying that though I am not an incredibly attractive woman, I get my fair share of friendly and flirty smiles. Let me also say that I have a total of 17 piercings and once dyed my hair pink and white. Until yesterday, I was treated with general kindness. Until yesterday, I only had ear piercings, (6 on each, with a 7th on my right) and two small studs in one nostril. My body modifications were not obvious nor glaringly offensive. However, yesterday, I got a Medusa and Labret piercing and had to go home by bus. ... read more

The Cyber Bites

I turned 17 on the 9th. So, of course, I got a piercing to celebrate the joyous occasion. About two weeks before then, I inquired to my mother if I could get a labret. She, as usual, looked at me horrified and inquired the age old question of "Why?" to which I replied that it would bring me happiness. After some badgering, she finally gave in. But I was still not satisfied. I know, I know, i should be! After all, I get a brand new, shiny piercing, glinting perfectly in the sun. However, I was not. I asked for ... read more

My Right Tragus Piercing

Friday, July 16th, 2012, I went to All In Ink in SoCal to get a new piercing. I originally wanted a forward helix and a tragus piercing on my right ear, but my ears are too small for the forward helix piercing apparently, so I just went with the tragus. This was my first non-lobe ear piercing, but I've been researching piercings and body mods for years, so I wasn't really that nervous. I think that part of the reason I wasn't nervous is that, a few years back, I had a surface piercing on my thigh for about six ... read more

four-point suicide swing

My suspension was rather surprising in its timing. Two close friends of mine; John Wayne and Alice, are founders of the performance group Freak Factor and very wonderful, inspiring people. Last year I participated in a flesh pulling in one of their shows, and having quite enjoyed it; I decided to try a full body suspension the next time that the opportunity arose. This only happened rather abruptly when they discovered that they were moving quite soon, and would not be able to suspend me privately. Luckily they had been in the midst of planning a show where Alice was ... read more
