Father-daughter piercing experience

Every once in a while, the voice of quality and of alternative culture triumphs over that of mass-culture garbage. This is one of those stories. For me, body piercing and tattooing are things that when done right make the world a prettier, more playful place. And I just put my money where my mouth is. My daughter turned ten this fall. A number of her friends have had their ears pierced and she had been asking to get hers done. Her mother said okay and from some of the girls' parents they got the names of a couple of mall ... read more

Do you ever plan your piercings?

To start, I'm completely addicted to piercings. As soon as my mother let me get my second lobes pierced, I got hooked. A year later I was sporting two impromptu and dangerous (done with a gun due to my lack of better judgement) cartilage piercings and had just made the decision to pierce my tragus. By 'made the decision,' I mean that my work had just paid me and I was standing outside the shop. I was slightly nervous as I'd never been pierced anywhere but a pharmacy and with anything besides a piercing gun, however the piercer Michelle assured ... read more

Stretching with Tape Saved My Life

Well, I might be exaggerating a bit, but by using the taping method, it really has helped me with my stretching in the long run. But before I tell you about my experience that day, I might as well give you a little history on my stretching experiences up until now. I got my lobes pierced at an 8g and a pair of seconds at a 10g at Infinite Body on, South street, in Philadelphia, by Clay. I only intended on stretching the bottoms as I was going to put regular earrings in the seconds (obviously I had no idea ... read more

My Industrial Piercing

Yesterday, it finally happened. I had been begging my parents for two long years of my life, and they finally caved. Well, here's how it happened. Both of my parents have a thing against any type of body modifications (even though my mom has 2), though my mom is much more tolerant than my dad. Before my industrial, I only had 3 lobe piercings (one on each ear stretched to a 6g) and 2 cartilage piercings (both without my dad's permission). A couple months ago, I told my mom that I wanted an industrial piercing for my 14th birthday, November ... read more

First rook piercing

About two months ago, I finally made up my mind and decided to go get my cartilage pierced. I had been considering it for a while, but was nervous due to the fact that the last cartilage piercing I had got infected and I ended up having to remove the piercing. However, this was the first time that I was going to get my ear pierced with a needle rather than with a gun. I really didn't quite know what I was going to get done when I was driving to the shop, because I just couldn't decide what piercing ... read more

Ear Stretching, ahoy!

I initially had my ears pierced in 5th grade, doubles in 6th, and cartilage in 9th. Unfortunately, my cartilage was done with a gun at Claire's(I know, I know. Don't start yapping.) and it never really healed properly. It was extremely sensitive all the time and my ear just didn't look good with any earring in it. So, after a long time of 'just dealing with it,' I finally took it out. Well, now I thought my ears were just boring, so I got the bright idea to start stretching my left ear (the one that had the cartilage piercing). ... read more

Taking Care Of An Old Problem

Years ago, as a teen, I had wanted to get my ears pierced. Piercing anything, including ear lobes, was frowned upon by my very conservative and religious family. I begged and pleaded and after begging some more, my parents finally gave in and took me to a Doctor one Saturday morning. The Doctor pierced a hole in each of my lobes with two very thick needles sitting in a paper cup filled with rubbing alcohol. I was so happy to have my new piercings that I didn't even care that it hurt bad and that I fainted right after the ... read more

new tastes

About one year ago I had my conch punched with a 0 dermal biopsy punch which was my most extreme mod at the time. now had been contemplating doing this for years and years and had heard all the stories about how terrible conch punches are and how nobody would ever want to go through it again, so yes, I was scared. I wanted to pee my pants. I went in as planned to see my body modification artist for the procedure but was taken off gaurd when there was someone I did not recognize in the shop. He was ... read more

My rejected rook.

I recently decided that it was time to get a new ear piercing and initially thought of the "snug" piercing, but my local piercers couldn't pierce that as they didn't use curved barbells, so I thought of the next piercing I wanted; a Rook piercing. I went down to piercers knowing that it would cost me £20 for this piercing and done the usual signing of the form before I was directed to the chair. I have a usual piercer who has pierced 6 of my other piercing's so he new not to give me the talk about aftercare. He ... read more

My New Rook

I just want to start out my story by saying that I've always wanted piercings and tattoos since I met my biker uncle. He has all of these awesome tattoos all over and I think he's just the most awesome guy ever. He was my inspiration for entering the body mod world. I just love the way they look. Anyways, I already have 3 lobes on each ear and 2 helixes on my right ear. I also have a tongue piercing that I got on a whim when my friend decided she wanted to get her tongue pierced and wanted ... read more
