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

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

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

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

to get a septum

My septum piercing came as a bit of a surprise, even for myself. It just acts as further proof of how one changes in the course of a few years. Basically, my piercer and friend John Wayne had suggested that I look into getting my septum done shortly after I met him, and I had found the idea rather uninspiring. At that stage I was focusing on my ear projects and was not interested in getting any other piercings at all. However, three years later the same friend announced he and his fiancé; were moving far away, and this was ... read more

My Inner Conch Piercing

After going to the local piercing studio to get the jewelry for my tragus piercings shortened and replaced, I immediately got the itch to get more ear piercings after having not had any piercings in nearly a year. I have several body piercings, but my ears are relatively bare, and that needed to be fixed. After some research and thought, I decided to get an inner conch piercing on my left ear. I like the way that inner conch piercings look because they are pretty subtle and tucked away, but you can also have it be really prominent by changing ... read more

My Tragus Piercings

After a few months of not getting any piercings and having a piercing itch, I decided that for my 21st birthday that I wanted to get tragus piercings done on both ears. I was wary about getting them done originally because my parents aren’t exactly supportive of my piercing habit. So it took me some courage to ask my mother if she would be okay with me having these piercings as I knew there was no way that I would be able to hide them. At the time, she was unaware of all of my piercings with the exception of ... read more

My Rook Piercing

It’s hard for me to be away from my favorite piercing studio, Iris Piercing in Salt Lake City, and it is in fact a little dangerous for me. This is because if I go into the studio after not having had a piercing in awhile, I get an insatiable itch to get new piercings that doesn’t go away until I get them. So I decided to go ahead and get my rook pierced in my right ear after a few days of intense research and picture surfing. Usually once I want a piercing, it’s hard to get me out of ... read more
