My tragus experience.

So basically I had wanted to have this done since i was about fifteen years old. Back then i assumed I would need parental consent, something i KNEW my parents would never allow. Piercings in their eyes are for uncouth individuals and certainly not for their only daughter. Once I had reached eighteen and left home for University i just assumed i was too much of a geek to do something so reckless. Time passed and before I knew it I was twenty. I knew I wanted to get it done before my twenty first birthday and April is obviously ... read more

My second and third DIY piercings!

Last month I wrote about my very first DIY piercing experience (which was my right cartilage) and now I am back to write about my newest piercings! You can read my first story here: http://www.bme.com/pierce/01-ear/A91102/earmyver.html. My name is Sarah and I am 16 years old. I have a total of 10 piercings, which include: first lobes, second lobes, third lobes (what this story is about), right tragus, left cartilage, right cartilage and bellybutton. Last week I was sitting in my math class (again) talking to my two friends. We started talking about piercings and my friend (not the same one ... read more

My lobe story. From nothing to 44mm in a year.

I've stretched my ears off and on three times since I was fourteen. I'm now nineteen. The reason that it was 3 times, instead of one solid slow consistent stretch with tape was mostly due to age. Being stupid, fourteen, and using cheap silicone tunnels. I just wish that someone would have told me how to correctly stretch, before I ripped my lobes multiple times. So, I let them heal, and as one closed completely, the other lobe had so much scar tissue after a 5/8 to 3/4 silicone dead stretch, no more damage could be done. A little over ... read more

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

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

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

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
