Shoulder Memorial Tattoo

So I'm going to start this off by saying if you want a tattoo, really want one, just get it done. Does it hurt? Yes. Does it hurt enough to keep you from doing it? No.  My Grandma died the morning of my brothers 18th birthday, 10-1-10, from creutzfeldt-jakob disease. She died not knowing who we were, and angry at the world in general. Before she died, I never would have gotten a tattoo. She was one of those old southern ladies, mean as a snake, who when they said 'get a tattoo and i'll take it right back offa ya ... read more

My wonderful conch piercing!

If you had asked me a few months ago about getting my conchs pierced I would have told you "There is no way in Hell that I am doing that!" I especially wouldn't of ever told you that I was getting both done. I had always thought of conch piercings as extreme and those that only heavily modded people got. They looked so painful and I just couldn't imagine doing that to myself. Well a couple months ago I had planned on making a trip up to Jacksonville, Fl to visit a few friends in April and as custom my friend Taylor and ... read more

tattoos for cancer research

At the end part of last year (2011) we found out that my aunt had breast cancer, as you can probably imagine it was a massive shock and no one really knew what to do. I was talking to my mum about it and she said it would be nice to maybe to the race for life to show her our support and raise some money for cancer research at the same time, and that we could get the rest of our family to get involved too. At first I thought this was a brilliant idea and I started thinking ... read more

smiley, frowny and tongue web piercing

The first time I saw a smiley piercing was on a girl at the pub I had just started working at. My initial reaction was to wonder who on earth would want one of those? The more I thought about it though, the more I realised just how beautiful it was, and so personal too! No one need know it was there if you don't want them too. So I headed on over to bme and looked at some of the uploaded photos. I gradually realised that this would be my next piercing. After reading up on the risks though, ... read more

Scary septum...not so scary

I've always been wary about septum piercings, right from when I was about sixteen and read somewhere that it was incredibly painful. I had both nostrils pierced in my teens and they were both so bad, I assumed that the septum would be off the scale in terms of pain! To be honest, this has left me with a bit of a fascination for other people's septum piercings. I frequently embarrass myself every time I meet anybody with one, going, 'Oo did it hurt?' Fast forward a few years, and I was feeling braver.   It's coming up to the ... read more

nostril piercing

Firstly, let me say  that my parents are dead against piercings and tattoos. They're a bit more relaxed about piercings, as at least you can take those out, tattoos however are with you for life pretty much. I have many piercings, but nothing really on my face, so whilest my parents aren't fond of them, at least they're hidden. But I figured, I've moved out, gone to a different city and living with my partner, why not get a piercing I've wanted for ages? It took a few days, but eventually I worked up the courage to go and get ... read more

Tattooing Cthulhu

 I am tattooed. Not the ″oh, I have a butterfly on my butt cheek″ tattooed, but full blown ain’t getting a corporate job, funny looks from old ladies tattooed. Guess what? I fucking love it. My neck tattoo was the turning point. Once I got a large piece done on my neck, the stares went from curious to intimidated. I've always been into odd hobbies and I've always been considered the ″weird one″ of my friends and family members. My choice in body modifications feels like a way of expressing who I am to anyone who looks at me. Once ... read more

An Inverse Navel Story

Little History:: My mother hates mods, as I'm sure I have said before. When I was 15, I wanted to get a navel piercing.. I told my bestie and she went to get it done so then she had one and there was me, obviously still wanting it. I went to a bootleg hair salon and gave them my student ID and got it done with some birthday money and five minutes later I came out with a slightly crooked diamond-balled barbell in my belly. Mom found out and ripped it out merely three days later and that was the ... read more

Industrial and Tragus Piercings

This past summer, I spent a few weeks in England visiting a friend. I had decided before I left that I would get an industrial piercing to commemorate the experience. On our long drive far out into the English countryside from Heathrow Airport, I told her my plans and she was thrilled. In fact, she said that she had been interested in getting her tragus pierced. I had never considered that piercing before, but it wasn't long before I couldn't imagine NOT getting it pierced. Two days later, we headed into Banbury and went down a few wrong roads before ... read more

My lovely vertical nipple experience!

I have been a huge fan of nipples piercings for ages. I just never got around to getting mine done, for a variety of different reasons. Well, my boyfriend and I broke up about 3 weeks ago; and I just got an IUD inserted so I'm on a permanent menstrual cycle for a while. In conclusion, I won't be having any sex for a while so I decided it was the perfect time to get them done! Plus, I had the extra cash thanks to tax season. I did a lot of research on what kind of positioning I wanted. ... read more
