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

My lovely little tragus.

Today I turned 16. This morning I took my learners permit test, (100%, high fives for me) handed in school work (MUCH overdue I might add,) took my doggie for a long walk, and ultimately completed a whole lot of things I've been meaning to, but haven't found the time to do. All of these things are irrelevant however; as the most exiting thing I did today was get my tragus pierced. A brief piercing history, my ears are pierced 7 times (now) all over the shop, couple up the top, double lobes, my navel is pierced, and I've retired ... read more

My Journey to 1/2" !

In October of 2008, I headed downtown one day with a friend to get my septum pierced. While there, before paying for my fresh piercing, I noticed each employee had stretched earlobes. I had seen and heard of this before, but never until then had I been so attracted to the idea. When I got home, I did some e-research on the concept of stretching earlobes ad became quite stretch-savvy on the matter. I figured if I stretched my first set of holes, I could always use my second and third sets for regular earrings. Still, I was a bit ... read more

Lucky Thirteen

So last Sunday i woke up to the sight of the sun shining through the blinds and my boyfriend's awesome new tattoo (he assures me his chest is now 'finished' although if tattoos are anything like piercings i doubt he ever will be 'finished'). It felt like a new-piercing day for sure, don't ask me how I know, you just do, don't you....? Anyway, first, we had to find a good studio I felt I could trust. Previously I had always used the tried and tested method of nipping across to Ground Control to pay Tails a visit, but since ... 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

My tiny stretching experience

I've always wanted to have modestly stretched ears. My ears have been pierced since I was eleven, done at Claire's. I had them pierced with a piercing gun, which isn't the best method. Luckily, it was uncomplicated and I had no scar tissue. So, back seven or eight months ago, I attempted to dead stretch from an 18ga to 14ga, using some stainless steel circular barbells I'd borrowed from my best friend. Not a good idea. I tried for weeks, and my ears just became inflamed, swollen and lumpy. Fast forward to a month or two ago, my best friend ... read more

5/8" to 7/8" Lobe Scalpelling - Not too bad!

BACK STORY: My goal has been to reach 1" lobes for awhile now. I'm sure this is how most of these stories start out. Anyway, I started stretching my lobes in grade 9 or so but never really planned to go large until around three years ago. That's when I knew I wanted to reach at least 1" and get that certain shape of the ear I love so much. When the side starts to round out away from the normal curve of the ear. So lovely. My ears made it to 3/4" with some abuse along the way but ... read more

Stretching Earlobes to � (19mm)

I began the ear lobe stretching process roughly 2 years ago when I was 15 years old. I was inspired by a sense of difference and acceptance to get my ears pierced and stretched when I was younger, and to my surprise my mother took me to get my ears pierced even though she hates the look of stretched ear lobes. I waited the suggested 6 weeks before changing out the jewelry, and as soon as the wait was over I bought a pair of 12g tapers. Over the course of a week I worked the 12g tapers into my ... read more

Spontaneous industrial

*May 2009* Almost everything that I do is completely spontaneous, and my decision to get an industrial was no different. I had been looking up interesting non-facial piercings (no facial piercings were allowed at my job at the time) and came across the industrial. I immediately loved it and decided to get one. I had only 4 (total)lobe piercings and a navel piercing at the time. I'd been wanting an eyebrow piercing FOREVER (and I still want one!), but like I said, my job would not allow me to have one, which is really unfortunate :] One of my best ... read more
