My very swollen and very painful snug piercing

I decided I wanted my snug pierced when I was 15 years old and I couldn't wait to turn 16 to get it done without parent consent. I checked different body piercing places and decided to go for 'Tribal voice' I went in there and I talked to a piercer to see if I could get it done, she said yes and told me she was going to put a 8mm bar in my ear and off I went to the studio.

Piercing myself is something that other people never seem to get, ... read more

I Don't Want to See It! [Snug]

On Valentine's Day of 2009, I got my "real" piercing...a forward helix in my left ear. I had a little bit of trouble with it, but overall, I absolutely adore it and it didn't take long for the fabled "piercing addiction" to attack and make me want more. But what to get? I really wanted something that not a lot of people have, and I didn't want to stray from my ears (my family is really against all other piercings and already kind of frown down upon the total of three piercings I now have in each ear). Eventually, I ... read more
